    Stolen Kit

    What a bummer! Just a thought but is there any way you might be able to claim on your house insurance? Some policies seem to cover kit away from home. Wouldn't hurt to give them a call.

    Creamola Foam!

    Try Googleing 'Creamola Foam'. One or two sellers available. You have to be a certain age to remember just how good it was. It was also a great drink to take camping etc.

    Creamola Foam!

    I believe Creamola Foam is back on the market. A great fizzy drink that comes in powder form. I remember it from the '70's. Has anyone tried the new version? If so what did you think?:)

    Fantastic carving but out of my price range. Since it's carrying a fish is it an Osprey?
