Police training at the Martlesham TescoAn older trolley pushing man at the Martlesham Tescos yesterday taking in the multiple police officers asked Are they real ones?  Yes.  Well they're the first I've seen in ten years. ... we think he was exaggerating a bit:)  It was a training exercise for soon to be constables who exhibited impressive self confidence dealing with the public.  Nice to know money is still available for training new blood.

Spices in gherkin jarsLife Skills 9:  Supermarkets that have a world food section (the Norwich Hartford Bridge Tesco has Nigerian 6% Guinness!) may have those large cellophane bags of ground spices at a pro rata one fifth the price of Schwartz refills.  We decant them into large one time gherkin jars and even then the jars aren't big enough.  Couldn't see any large bags in the Martlesham Tesco today but not surprisingly the Hackney Tesco does stock them.
