out of date by just over a month, looks ok, smells ok, tastes ok, will i die?

and why im here, how come foods that are normally soft go hard when they are left, and foods thats are hard go soft? and if left even longer go back to being soft or hard and then back again and on and on...?

Hey Danny I didn't realise it was Friday! :0)

Why do you have to throw cheese away when it goes mouldy, except for the cheese that is mouldy when you buy it?

I don't think you'll die Danny, only maybe of boredom if you start thinking about things like that.

its ok, im still alive! i didnt worry about it for a second, its gone now, what will happen to it anyway? maybe it will go a bit softer? which is a good thing, or maybe get a few green bits in but i can pick them out.

p.s. i wish it was friday!

Nothing wrong with a bit of homegrown penicillin

...and we all lived to tell the tale (and millions before us).
Getting a bit too paranoid about germs and cross contamination these days I reckon.

Too true.
Seem to remember that when we had one bath a week and a lick and a promise behind the ears at other times we did not seem to suffer so much with health, (and dirty hands at meal times was not unusual...they say a peck of dirt never hurt anyone) but that could just be an illusion brought on by old age.
More LOL

It's a well known fact that the cleaner we get the more we lay ourselves open to infection.

I'm not saying we should go back to the days of open sewers but when the Ainsdale Horticultural Society can no longer sell home made cakes at the village show, because the members don't have hygiene certificates, you know it is getting out of hand. Who wants to buy Mr. Kipling's, when you used to be able to buy Mr. and Mrs. Next Door Neighbour's?

Anyway, does anybody know what harm we are doing ourselves ingesting all those detergent residues?

True Geoff, I've read plenty of journal papers putting a lot of the rises in allergies, some cancers etc down to the increased level of cleanliness that we now seem to crave.

Not that I remember it, I'm only wee!
