An interesting couple of days, during which I discovered that Boots the chemist no longer sells sodium bicarbonate. Is this another manifestation of the nanny state I ask myself? All these innocent people wanting bicarb for non-allergenic household use and now unable to get it because someone might ingest too much sodium? Hrrrumph, I say.... HRRRRUUUUUMPH!!!!
So meanwhile all the deadly poisons customers might accidentally or intentionally ingest remain on the shelves and poor old baking soda is fast decried a social pariah - as was vitamin C powder - possibly for similar reasons??? ;-) I guess icing sugar and non-fragranced talc will be next for the chop.... So before I head off to the Republic of Ireland to order 25 kilos of the stuff to make my postage economic, I thought I would have a little whingelette here.
As an aside, anyone who is interested in composing and publishing music on line might appreciate this link:
OK.... so after many hours slaving over this hot keyboard (believe me, the letters are wearing off!) I must finally get lunch or supper or whatever....
Enjoy your Bank Holiday, but don't get indigestion, and if you do )or you need to deodorize the fridge or the cat box) don't waste shoe leather visiting Boots.....
