    I had the image of my dear late grannie running from Aberdeenshire to get first in the queue.

    There are other sources of bio-flavanoids. I did try pychnogenol for a while but it is not as much fun as daily chocolate treatment.

    This just brought it back to me when the Diabetic specialist nurse said to my son he could have the odd bar of chocolate as long as it was a fun bar, he turned to her and said, "Yes but you don't know what my idea of a fun bar is, and I like lots of fun!"

    He's definately my son :lol:
