||Hello my dear Nicey and TW|
What a fascinating site you run dear sir
Keiths experiments raise the question, has anyone experimented with the healing properties of varied biscuits in Homeopathic dilution in tea, potentially as a by product of dunking? Is it based on individual metabolism or can one extrapolate to a generic response.
Or is it just sludge and leave it at that?
|Nicey replies: I think most of us have dabbled in that at some point in our lives. Indeed right now I can hear the clatter of biscuit tin lids as the youngest member of staff has just discovered that requesting a small cup of tea gets him a limited pass for the Gingernut tin.|
||Dear Nicey and the Wife,|
I was sorry to read of the mishap suffered by Louise Frank and her partner while attempting a spot of biscuit healing.
The problem lies in the use of a chocolate digestive as a pendulum. The chosen biscuit is too heavy and fragile for this purpose and is difficult to tie securely with thread. The correct choice for a pendulum is of course the party ring. This is lighter and less crumbly than many biscuits and the hole in the middle makes it easy to attach securely to a thread. Party rings are also available in a choice of colours so that you can choose one which is more attuned to your own particular aura.
I must stress that under no circumstances should biscuit healing be attempted by anyone without the proper training and equipment as this could result in injury, death or damage to a perfectly good biscuit.
McVities Milk Chocolate Digestive Review
|I have just happened upon the letter from Keith O'Kane re using biscuits instead of crystals for healing. My partner and I were much taken by this idea and gathered a selection of biscuits in an effort to heal the pulled muscle in his shoulder. Unfortunately, as I was dangling a chocolate digestive on a piece of string over the afflicted area, the biscuit gave way and began to plummet to the ground. My partner, desperate to try to save what is his favourite biscuit, fell off the sofa and has now injured his other shoulder. Perhaps Mr Kane could write a book "The Safe Way With Biscuit Healing". Incidentally, my sister is several weeks pregnant and thought that a biscuit could be used as a pendulum to ascertain the sex of the baby. Does Mr Kane know which biscuit would be best to use? I assume that if it swings clockwise it is a boy and anti-clockwise it is a girl. If, however, it falls to the ground (see nasty incident above), then should the parents be buying both pink and blue outfits?|
||Dear Wifey and Nicey,|
It seems yonks since I first discovered your site, and now I see you're only a year old, well Happy Birthday !!! fantastically funny and clever site.
I'm a single lady, recently made redundant from my job, so I can now use all of my mugs whenever I like, I usually make tea in them. Ceylonese preferably.
Why has no biscuit firm yet made an Internet cookie biscuit ?
No more office teas for me,
now I can dunk my bread and cheese,
or my giant belgian biscuit
or my moggies' little crispbits.
All my mugs are on display
all about the house each day,
in the bathroom or the bedroom
in the attic if there's headroom.
Here and there a biscuit tin,
I can pillage when I will.
Yep I've got epiphany,
Biscuits and my cup of tea.

|Nicey replies: We put the bit about our first birthday up about 2 years ago, because its now our third at the end of this month. Redundancy has always been a blessing in disguise for me, I probably wouldn't have just written our book if it wasn't for the last one.
Our web cookies are called biscuits if you look at the data.
||At my workplace it is common for 'outsiders', or as some would have it 'friends you haven't met yet' to use any available mug. Anyone's that is, except mine, for I never wash mine up, merely rinse the worst effects of the custard creams out. This started as a drive for the perfect cuppa, in the same way as scrubbing a wok clean is frowned upon by those that are in the know, but this added bonus was soon noticed. Strangely, despite everyone here seeing the value of my policy, no-one else has followed my lead. I can only imagine they like having other people drink out of their mug. Additionally, when all the mugs are on the shelf, it is hard to see those that are behind others, but being able to look down from on high, mine stands out as the unclean-one-in-the-middle. You see, I'm a winner all round. Except when I have soup in it from time to time.|
|Nicey replies: Lee,
A common strategy, that probably also ensures that people don't invite themselves round for meals at your house either.
