Had some Kippers in the LHR BA T4 Arrivals lounge last month. A bit overcooked for my liking, but OK. 8)
Kippers don't need to be cooked. The kipperring process (smoking) cures the fish so they should only need to be heated to the points of melting the butter on the bread 8) .

This thread is starting to smell a little fishy. :oops:

I have had smoked herring but couldn't tell you what colour it was before being smoked. :)

Rivetting read NM, all 13 pages of it! A shame the OP removed most of their posts.
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

The post removal was a whole new story and even more rivitting. Merry was indeed an interesting character.

A shame about the posts removed on 25/5/2002! You get the general drift of the thread but miss a lot of the juicy bits. I gather from the 'was' that Merry does not frequent FT anymore.

For the record I do not like a fish meal at the best of times least of all served on an aircraft!

Well, the answer is in this thread. Merry even posted in the thread.

I understand Merry may still be lurking but hasn't posted since September 05.

Thanks Lindsay, all very interesting. Problem is it is like a maze, one thread leads to another and another and another....

I thought this thread was a beauty. :)

Anyway I am sure I have work to go to today. :?

There is a hat up for grabs for the winning prediction. Surely that prize alone is enough to cover the entry fee!

Straitman has been in Hong Kong for 1 week.

Returns tomorrow and I expect posting count to return to normal.

Hmmm.

I wouldn't have thought that Bill was that religious or orthodox for that matter. :shock:

Only 14 posts to go before predictions close and we seem to have lost straitman!

   Yada Yada        16/05/06 @  9:30am (AEST)

We can almost certainly strike off the first 2 on the list and I would say the next 4 after that don't have much of a chance. Yada Yada this is your chance to win another contest and a hat. :shock:

Congratulations on 1,000 posts straitman. :D Now for 2,000 and beyond. :)

Hmmm. It seems that the winner is JohnK. :shock: The 1,000th post was at 3:01pm on the 30th April. straitman has finished with a flurry of posts in the last few days

JohnK would you please provide straitman with your address details so that you can claim a collector's edition hat that was offered as the prize for this competition.

oz_mark can you please update the winner's podium with the latest results.

We are almost ready for the next competition in the sandpit. Is it Mal or Yada Yada or maybe both.
