    Obviously a shock, Ally, but they are okay.

    Seems this is the modus operandum of many car thieves these days. Most top-end cars are hard to break into, so they look for a posh car outside a house and break into the house to steal the keys.

    Something similar happened to D#1 and S-I-l in Manchester. In the night they heard men trying to get through their front door - D#1 was holding Wee Paddy while S-i-L was poking at them through the broken glass with an umbrella. Luckily they ran off!

    S-I-L had a fancy Merc - next day he traded it in and bought a Skoda as well as installing CCTV. Polis said it is a common occurrence in Manchester - the yobs cruise the nice areas looking for a fancy car.

    Message - don't have a fancy car outside the house!! (ours is a 12 year-old Saab - no worries!)

    Okay the answer is the EGG came first! I like the last line - they will not end up on your dinner plate. (producing human protein would reduce eating these eggs to cannibalism) Science is truly amazing .when you think what can be done.

    They will be far too valuable to eat, Bill!

    But the drugs they will produce are currently horrendously expensive, when produced by other methods. Nice to know that old Dolly did not live and die in vain.

    Hello,

    Archaeologist have found traces of the earliest beer making in the UK. Of course it was only done to have something clean to drink:
