Garlic, fresh organic (or at least local, not imported) garlic is miles better. Not just bigger garlic flavour, but less sharp, and well rounded with more depth of taste. As soon as it's gets old, or like the garlic imported from china, it becomes very one note in taste.

Exactly, offices promote the worst kind of politics. Small people wanting to wield power in their own tiny fiefdom.

The one thing I've noticed over the years is that the people with the most personal stuff at their desks get punished the most politically. The one time I brought stuff in was the only time I've been made "redundant".

I've noticed managers talk down about the people who have a lot of stuff. I think when they see a lot of personal stuff they can more readily judge and pigdon hole them.

It's so dumb, if you don't mass vaccinate globally, and just hoard vaccines for your self, all those extra variants will make those hoarded vaccines landfill and make this virus never ending.

Yep, also the US government still has an embargo on the raw materials needed to make vaccines from going to India, right when they are having the biggest spike in cases ever, even though the US has a vaccine surplus. Regardless of the US political party in charge, "America First" policy is alive and well.

Here we are, Friday evening, walking through the heart of Melbourne CBD, the sight and smells of food vendors serving delicious foods from across the world, and FRed stops.
"What's that amazing smell?!"
Unbeknownst to her she has stopped in front of a Subway.

Marmite has like beef umami undertones, while vegemite had more of the umami flavours attached to toasted bread or hoppy beer. So on toast if you don't over do it, and add butter it's like a salty supercharged version of butter on toast, while marmite is more of a day old left overs, overcooked beef pot roast on toast.
