Hi ladymosscat and welcome to the forum.  I looked up your site. I  guessed you meant "Instructables."  A really interesting and fun site.  Mutley, you will love it and no doubt could teach them a thing or two.   Cheers

That's exactly the kind of attitude you need here!  Do feel free to post about anything that takes your fancy but try to keep to the titles on the first page.  I usually manage to forget that bit! Big_Laugh

I'll try that again!

Good evening, I do apologise so much for the behaviour of our patience above,  We gave them a computer to help them selfs... and they abused it.

Welcome to the forum, mutley Cheers

Welcome ladymosscat, Sarah, you are absolutely right, and it is mad on occasions, so come on in, and enjoy. Lots of like-minded people and all willing to help, should you need it!

Isn't a pc tower case made of plastic? If it is I wouldn't use it. Tins would be better if you could get some big catering size ones. Cheers

Always thought pc stuff was plastic, well you learn something new everyday. Like the other day when I found out that bergamot is not a herb like I thought it was but a citrus fruit Eeek

Good luck with the interview Mutley Chef

Hope the interview goes well Mutley.Chef

Bergamot the herb was named after the Bergamot Orange as it has a similar smell to the oil made from the orange peel. Bergamot is a member of the monarda family, which in turn is a type of mint. Common plant names- as opposed to their latin ones- can come from all sorts of odd places and lead in all directions!

Joanna, I was confused about the use of bergamot in Earl Grey tea--that is the citrus, isn't it, not the herb/plant (which is formally monarda, I think).

Good luck with the interview, Mutley!

Could either Barbara-after the Boston Tea party the native bergamot tea was drunk rather than the imported stuff. But I suspect the modern tea uses the citrus .
