I'd like to star in Friends too, but only if I had a tazer. ;)

are there any cheeses that I wouldn't eat?

I strongly advise against Harzer käse. This is made in the Harz mountain area of Germany (near Hannover) and should not be stored in cool, dry conditions, Actually, my personal feeling is that it should not be stored outside heavily-shielded nuclear bunkers. It's semi-translucent yellow, with a smell, even through three layers of plastic wrapping, that will take a week to get off your fingers. The taste is indescribable, but rotten milk is one of the more attractive components. And I like ripe cheeses and the smelly sort like Pie D'Angloys. This is not a cheese for eating. It is a cheese for laying down and avoiding, or possibly for use as the active component in an ICBM warhead.

This is not a challenge.

You have been warned!

And yes, there are certain similarities in our answers!

Right. I consider myself warned ;)

No big surprises here for me--I must be getting to know you well. Don't know James Blackshaw, though, but will investigate. All in all, these are answers that reflect a contented person, I think, and I'm happy to see that.

(I see you have posted next Brothers K installment--shall read and comment when I am able, soon.)
