    I watched it last week when he enlightened the viewers to the fact that E120, which is a crimson food colouring found in icing etc is infact dried and crushed Cochineal which is an insect that likes infesting cacti. I made the concious decision never to watch this programme again.

    I must be too old, my mum always told me cochineal was "spiders blood", which in a way it is, it added a bit of frisson to eating red coloured food

    I'll hold my hand up.. I have started going to JDW less and less since Sky Sports News was taken off Freeview which was my main reason to stay in JDW on Saturday's when my team is not playing at home.

    In fact I only went to JDW twice in last two weeks which was rather shock to me! Now I go to White Lion in Tamworth where they just installed spanking brand new HD Sky.

    I can sit and watch JDW customers more than the TV. Mind you ,they probably sit there staring back thinking exactly the same thing. But these days I rarely visit Hereford or Worcester and so do not get into a 'spoons. I am left with the choice of watching paint dry or the Daily Mail Cryptic Crossword.
