Easy!  Hot chocolate's dessert.  Sweet, hot, chocolately, sweet.  And 
did I mention sweet?  I certainly couldn't handle 6 cups of that a 
day!  Now tea, on the other hand... (Sorry, Ania, no sugar but yes 
milk.  Or the other way - green tea, and herbal teas, no milk but yes 
honey.)  Oh, and calories - there's two reasons!

Hallie.  (Still frightened by Jacob's driving story.  Second only in 
fear factor to the Bovril eating thing.  ACK!  YUCK!).

Oh - as a PS.  Thanks to you lot, I read _Cold Comfort Farm_.  Becca 
loved it as much as I did.  We decided tonight that the "There'll be 
no butter in Hell" line will have to be followed by: "...but I'm 
pretty certain there _will_ be Bovril"!  (Marmite is substitutable, 
if need be).

PPS  Do North Americans have the "pleasure" of acquaintance with 
Bovril & Marmite? I only remember running desperately away when my 
mothermade a cup here in Ireland.
