    They soften a bit if you freeze them Mark.

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    They're back in the freezer now after yesterday's trip and may be frozen/thawed three or four times by the time I've used them up.

    I'll try that. If it works and it ought to then I can use an old 1.5L flask which will stay hotter for longer.

    A steradent tablet plus boiling water will clean any flask. I use one every few months or so for coffee stains .

    John kept refrigerated tares keep for weeks.

    I will still use tares but I was surprised to find the pellets fished by feeding them and one on the band was that good for roach.

    Er indoors drops a steradent tablet in the loo once a week, says it does a good cleansing job.
