    Porridge causes no end of arguments in our house. I make porridge by tipping some cheap porridge oats into a pan, covering them with milk, and cooking them until them oats are done. This takes about two minutes, and before I eat it I’ll add some sugar or a dollop of jam. My other half makes porridge by putting milk in a pan, turning on a gently heat, and adding a small amount of oats. This cooks for about 20 minutes, until she has cooked milk with some oats in it. It’s ludicrous.

    Is there a case for reporting websites still showing the PSA logo to the Advertising Standards Authority as well?
    I’ve found a local one … they have the PSA logo in their footer, and have an embedded YouTube video about ” the potential of homeopathy in the reversal of autistic spectrum disorder”. Yeesh.
