    Please postpone Search introduction until New Year

    Owing to festive chaos, might I suggest that the reintroduction of Search should take place after the alcohol-fuelled euphoria has evaporated?

    Me, I'm a "Diet Coke with Lemon" person...

    Yuck! Diet Coke with Lemon! That sounds worse than a hot Dr. Pepper with Lemon.

    When the alternative additive is Vanilla (I kid you not!), you can see why I go for lemon... <img src=/S/cloud9.gif border=0 alt=cloud9 width=25 height=23>

    Ah, the differences in taste on both sides of the pond.

    Here Vanilla Coke or Cherry Coke is the old standby from the REAL soda fountains of Olde. ( classic Coke, that is )

    "Diet Coke with Lemon" has been around the US since day one of the Diet Coke. The lemon is used to get rid of the "diet" taste.

    Is diet coke with lemon the definition of the quitissential "festive chaos" in the UK?

    With my throwaway final line I appear to have hijacked my own thread! (Makes a change from ours, I hear you cry...!)

    I don't believe that "Diet Coke with Lemon" is quintessentially British, but since it's 07:10 in the morning, there's no milk for the coffee until the milk delivery comes, and there's a bottle of DCwL in my desk, I think I'd better have some now!

    You mean you STILL have a milkman delivering to your door???
    I thought they went out with all the horse drawn salesmen of yore?

    It's pretty rare now, even in the UK, because delivered milk costs at least 50% more than from your local supermarket.

    I suspect it's office laziness, because a small van with milk crates in the back comes along to the office and dumps 4 pints near the front door, at some time between 06:00 and 07:45, usually... And there's a mini-supermarket within about 300 yards!

    Hmmm. According to this site, the milkman only leaves empty bottles... <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Bob, you can still get milk delivered to your door in Salt Lake City. May have something to do with the average family size being 8 persons. Though not so good in midsummer when the lows are 80

    I think the milk has been pre-drunk... No marks to the perpetrator thereof, who should have washed the bottles thoroughly before leaving them out for collection.

    (Why on earth would anyone want to put a picture of empty milk bottles on their website? No, TWO pictures??)

    Maybe they've heard you can do your shopping on the internet and think it applies to the milk. You'll probably find that the local dairy comes along, removes the picture of empty bottles and substitutes a picture of full ones.
