::cheeky grin:: Kinda explains the occassional fits of cheesy humour...
::serious look on face:: I thinks Christophe has a major obsession with
Camembert. ::looks in past private/off-list email file & sees Camembert
mentioned 9 times! Compare to my 4 mentions of Feta, 3 mentions of
goat-cheese in general:: :)
Isn't cheese like Camembert fattening? Bad for the heart?
