Never touch Bournville these days. I think Dairy Milk is still OK.
Sainsbury's does a good dark chocolate that I like. Currently I'm having to shop at Tesco & am relieved to find their intense dark chocolate is equally yummy.
I've also found that Dr Oetker dark cocoa powder (in the baking aisle, not with other coca powder) is super for making a coca drink.

My PH today is simply trying to decide what to cook for our main evening meal each day. Often dictated by routine, or what needs eating up. Today, can't decide.

I can't eat dark chocolate. It doesn't agree with me and I don't like the taste anyway.

My petty hate is these cookie windows that obliterate the whole screen on hootoo. Why do I get four of them?

And huge adds in the header that take up the top half of the page.

When h2g2 changed hands I was OK with the fact that there would be ads. Until recently the ads were fairly unobtrusive and easy to ignore. Maybe that's the point. TPTB seem to hve decided that the ads aren't doing their job, so they've made some ads more prominent. Snag is, the ads still aren't working, they're just annoying.smiley - erm

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Didn't even notice the bottom half of the page in some cases, especially on my Phone.

In goo, the ads are hardly visible. Sometimes a banner appears instead of the fish on the bicycle. Sometimes it doesn't. For example, at the moment, there is none.

Is it still happening? Perhaps they're spring cleaning - but pretty anti-social!

smiley - ta Thank you for kind concern. The window banging did eventually end, one hour later. It did give me a headache which lasted over an hour.

A lot of people are going a little stir-crazy at the moment.

Regardless of social distancing rules, I wish you had gone upstairs and confronted her.

I also want to know why she was banging her window open and closed. smiley - silly

I sometimes have to do it to liberate an insect on a window that's a bit stuck. But that's only open & shut once.

Controls on webpages/PDF's, etc that only appear when you hover your mouse directly over them smiley - erm. Yes it may well keep the page clutter-free (which I'm sure was the pitch of the genius who throught this up originally), but it's just really annoying and un-user-friendly. You have to waggle your cursor over the entire page in the hope that a zoom control will pop up briefly when you're looking at the right bit of the screen. So you need to know a control is there in the first place, before you go looking for it. Brilliant smiley - cross

Like looking for a menu - which turns out to be those decorative few lines in one corner.

My PH this morning was realising how my face sags when I lean forward or sideways. Where has all that elasticity gone?
