The shape allows a fan-shaped arrangement of flowers on a narrow table or close to a wall on a buffet table.

Hilarious question,  does it have a health warning.... :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I think at that time cigarettes were recommended to help asthma!

Now, cannabis is supposed to be beneficial for asthmatics....
At £31.00 per packet, I'll give up smoking and try this wonder illness management solution, now pass me some skins..... oooops tobacco is so dear, we'll have to take the medication neat...
Sorry, but a nonsense.
Take control of your lives, people, before the control freaks realise their ambitions.....
Here in France, yesterday the government announced an anti-charbon tax, ie anti-coal tax. Oh good said the greens, not realising that the last coal-mine here ended production in 2004, so who is paying the tax??? No-one.
Sadly, if this continues, then very little glass will be made, and very little will be affordable, art glass makers will be exterminated, for polluting....
etc....
Target the real problem, the US, and emergent industrial economies such as China....
Otherwise, nothing gets made, nothing sustains our physical needs, and we will have to eradicate our demand.
Somewhat contentiously,
Marcus

Marcus — I love it when you wax lyrical.   I never have a clue what you are talking about, nor do I follow your line of reasoning.   Many of your words are beyond me.    I have never heard of those you cite, nor of their quotations.

But I will defend to my last breath your right to free speech.   The world would be a poorer place without it.   Please get your soapbox out more often.

You remind me of Henry Burton.    Are you a descendant (possible, as they only cut his ears off)?

Later ... I think is is widely accepted that American English is much closer to that spoken by the likes of Shakespeare and Burton than our own.   One group from the 1607 Jamestown settlers founded a small colony on Tangier Island in Chesapeake Bay.   Being an island community, their language has changed significantly less than that of the mainland, and their language is regarded as the closest today to that of Shakespeare.   Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear them reading one of Burton's hell, fire and damnation attacks on Laud's pompous pronouncements.
