And there was me thinking 'This is the place for lively and thought-provoking debate'.

My mistake.

Surely fourm member there's no mistake, you have been on this website and a contributor long enough to know how it works. You like everyone else have a view, and you have the right like the rest of us on how you wish to express that view. The only point is that at some stage, people need to agree to disagree, and not always accept what is being forced on them by another member, usually as a fact?.

I suppose we are all guilty of that at some time in our lives?.

Whoops, I have just noticed. Was the above remark posted at 8.14AM by fourm member in response to his yesterday's 02/10/2013 9.22AM post " Is anyone STILL reading the Mail" and the Forum Editor's page 3 comment there?.

Of course the best way to save money on food is to be sensible about 'Best Before' dates. 'Best Before' means exactly that it doesn't mean that the food suddenly becomes uneatable the instant the date passes.

I used to work in the Flour Milling industry and bags of flour produced on the same day had widely differing Best Before dates. Self Raising flour had a 6 month date and Plain Flour an 18 month date. The reason is that the raising ingredients in Self Raising Flour slowly loose their effectiveness over time hence the shorter date, but there is nothing wrong with the flour itself that a teaspoon of baking powder won't remedy.
