How about a thread for general questions? There's usually someone out there who knows the answer.

I'll start:

1. Where can I buy empty plastic CD cases (ideally for "very minute lolly")?

But don't you store CDs which aren't shop-bought in paper covers? This way, you have more CDs in less space...

Yes. My wife made Aubergine curry last night. Very tasty. Will post later when she gets back home.

She Indian so this is the real deal. Not some Quazi lets try and curry something fannying about.
Mr. Morrissey has no discernable singing ability. His speciality is rhythm songs which he renders in an undistinguished whine; his phrasing, if it can be called that, consists of the stereotyped variations that go with a beginner's aria in a bathtub. For the ear he is an unutterable bore....

Aubergines are called eggplants round here... best to chop & soak heavily in salt before use, removes the bitterness... or roast oveer an open flame untill utterly incinerated.
This mush is the foundation for babaganouj.
The small purple ones are great fried simply with chilly ginger & garlic. Serve with rice & soy sauce.

I find those shops known as "ten bob shops" good for junk like empty cd cases.

Our cat, Fuckface, loves to lick the cold "coals" of our "flame effect" gas fire. What could the reason for this be?

She's 19 y.o. and is a bit senile- she walks along and just stops - as if she's forgotten what she set out to do - maybe she could be suitable material?

What's the best way to get back to sleep when having a bout of insomnia induced by worry over some possible future problem or something that's bugging you (usually work-related in my case)?

It's all about "sleep hygiene"
avoid caffeine late in the day
fix a time & routine to go to bed & keep it
have a light snack an hour or so beforehand
turn off the tv/pc at least 20 mins prior to going to bed (the show may be dull or there may be nowt happening here, but the super flast flicker of the screen is stimulating your brain)
Give yourself 20 mins. If you are still awake, get up. Your bed is meant to be a sanctuary, a refuge, a place you retire to. Laying there desperate for sleep makes it a torture rack. Do something light... look at a magazine for example. Don't turn on the TV, don't smoke.
Wait until you have settled down & give it another go.
Sleeping tablets are only good in the very short term ,best avoided really.
Chamomile tea & valerian get good recommendations.
Exercie helps.
Alcohol doesn't (the "sleep" of 8 pints is no sleep, it's a coma!)

as Friar Lawrence told us .."when unbrusied youth with unstuffed brain, doth couch his limbs, there golden sleep doth reign"
as mark Burgess from the Chameleons added "sleep, that blissful escape, when it comes, it's always too late"
