    I've had this sitar music stuck in my head all day - it's a really groovy remixed tune. It's not Primal Scream. I reckon it's been used as background music in cool programs about India. Help plz.

    I'm going to make some jam but have no lids for the jars (I'm just using baby food jars, the lids were thrown in the bin before I thought about it). Can I just lash cling film or something on them? I'm not planning on keeping them for a year or anything, I'll probably be giving most of it to...
