    Aha! The one I bought comes with an adapter cable, so now that one plug can power either of my broken DABs. Now I need to go back and decide whether to reorder the same thing, or just buy another of those adapter yokes, or go mess with the broken leads and play with wago's and solder. Or some...

    Find a site that seems to sell stuff she'd like, or a particular brands website, then buy a voucher. Personally I wouldn't buy anything for the missus, unless it's band merch, and she'd probably already have one anyway. But I have noticed a couple of brands and sites she's into. Get her a...

    Garth Brooks songwriting partner named the song "The Dance" after Riverdance, because he thought that would endear him to an Irish audience. Géaraith didn't know anything about Flatley et al. In fairness to Garth, he was glad he didn't know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go.

    It's probably fine. The tins that is, they'll last for years and years. If it goes off you'll know pretty quickly. Make an effort to eat it though I say. I also have a ton of tins of stuff in the kitchen that'll probably never get eaten. We did spend the lockdown learning how to make stews etc...
