Gotta use up those weird potatoes soup: Made about ten litres of beef-vegetable. Onion, garlic, and rice as a base. Then carrots, a strange variety of potato that has pink and white mottled flesh, lentils, tomatoes, cabbage, stewing beef, cloves, mustard, and winter savoury.

I need to can some, but I'm down to five lids because I just did a two-month's regimen of dog food.

Unrelated, but I keep returning to this question: Why do military types say "niner" instead of "nine"? Is it because they're afraid it will be confused with "five" on a static-y radio line, or is it just because they are so way much more cooler, man, than the rest of us?
