    Sounds like a nasty case of food poisoning. Coincidentally, I just watched this yesterday -

    Apparently cooked rice is the perfect breeding ground for Salmonella and other nasties. I had read that you shouldn’t reheat. After seeing a survivor of probably the most extreme reaction, I definitely won’t be reheating it again!

    Hmmm ...
    Celery, mushrooms, carrot, chicken...

    I use turkey and chicken mince which I make into a pasta sauce or curry in bulk and freeze with the above ingredients in the sauce. I ain’t died yet.

    I think the problem is probably people not chilling food rapidly after cooking it and not reheating food to a high enough temperature.

    Reheating rice to a high enough temperature to kill nasties is harder... and a takeaway is probably sitting around for too long before being put in the fridge.

    I got my new passport :) I am impressed with how quickly it was processed!

    I have scanned it, uploaded the scan to Dropbox and written my own mobile phone number on the Emergency Contacts page already!

    Today’s wildlife photos from ecologist Daughter at work are of Great Crested Newts.

    These are pond amphibians and, as they are endangered in the UK, you must have a license to handle or disturb them.

    From this video I must have been dead or my health would be severly damaged but I am not. These are old and outdated informations to my opinion.

    I agree...moist conditions - food not chilled or heated properly (or handled) - all good breeding grounds.

    We’re always happy to hear from you, Dan!
    Daylight is getting more scarce here too, but it’s October and November that are pretty hard. Thankfully everyone starts decorating for Christmas early to survive the dark season.

    Oh Todd, so sorry to hear about that experience. Why does every crook out there think they can take advantage of the elderly and not get caught? :mad: So sorry you have to go through this on top of worrying about your dad’s health.
    Murphy is beautiful!

    The exact date is immaterial. We’re in for days of celebration. (If @Tidgy’s Dad doesn’t mind sticking around...)

    A wise decision! I didn’t take photos during her lesson in the music school, but here’s some goofing around with the piano at home:

    Might prove useful around your birthday for the trivia birthday games. I should make a note of it!

    :( I can imagine. Boring life is the best, but you can appreciate it only if you’ve seen a different kind of life.
