Are they mutually exclusive then?

Curried tree would certainly provide plenty of roughage.

They are linked via toilet paper (made from trees and used copiously after a curry).

But only after placing the toilet rolls in the freezer. Trust me on this one.

Are you suggesting some sort of cycle here???

Here are some spice links between curry and trees:

Cinnamon - the bark from the evergreen Cinnamon tree "Cinnamomum verum" native to Sri Lanka

Cloves - the dried flower buds of an evergree tree in the Myrtle family "Syzygium aromaticum" native to Indonesia

Star Anise - the pericarp (fruit) of the evergreen tree "Illium verum" from SW China

Coconut - The fruit of the Coconut Palm "Cocos nucifera" native to many tropical regions.

The bark of the Quercus Suber is used to make wine corks.
A strategically placed cork may be required after a curry   :)

Unfortunately, this is a dying market amd many Cork oak ecosystems are being threatened by eucalypt plantations. Buy bottles with cork corks! Not that rubber bung stuff!

I've just found a source of fresh curry leaves Helichrysum italica, belonging to the rue or citrus family (Rutaceae). The dried ones never seem to do it but these are really flavoursome.

BTW, where can you find out about what 'day' has been declared?

I don't think so RD, I find evacuation a far better plan than retention, for me anyway, perhaps others would not agree.

Radio 2 on various programmes always announce the more interesting days or weeks. Terry Wogan usually talks about the food ones as people send him food stuffs for his breakfast. The man will eat anything. Steve Wright and Chris Evans come up with the others.

Well said and bang on. No more corks in wine = no more cork oak's. We need corks not synthetic stoppers in our wines. Wines can't breath with bungs.

No, they get all bunged up. They should inhale some VICK.
