Cold Comfort Farm - a great book - was my boyfriend's mother's favourite
book and her progeny (three sons) narrowly escaped being christened Reuben,
Seth and Jesse. They got away with Simon (the boyfriend), Nick and Toby. I
do like Seth, though.

I believe in Oz and NZ the nearest thing is vegemite.
Being an old hippie, I buy yeast extract (same thing minus fancy brand name)
in wholefood shops. I used to hate it, but now I like it. Is that sick and
depraved, Hallie?
