Cheese Round-up part 2

You may have been led to believe this is the second part of the cheese reviews. We can now confirm this is the case.

Still sampling Tesco's 3 for £3 cheese offerings, the subject of this study is Cheshire cheese. Cheshire, like other regional cheeses with a name of the place where it is made, is made in Cheshire. Of course Cheshire is a place, a place not too far away from Wales, and not too far away from Manchester.
It could be said that Cheshire cheese, which comes in 3 colours, is less salty than Caerphilly, and maybe even less crumbly in texture. Tesco apply a rating of '2'.
So to conclude:
Grated on hot food melt factor: 5/10 - Still far from adequate
Knife-block enjoyment rating: 4/10 - Barely an improvement on Caerphilly

The Nights Templar Cheese Round-Up

Welcome to a new section of the weblog, the cheese round up. Fortunately for you poor souls we are now providing expert cheese reviews.
As the picture suggests, this week we've been sampling one of the Tesco "buy 3 for £3" range. Caerphilly is located in Southern Wales 10 miles from Cardiff, we believe cheese to be their only claim to fame. As Tesco advise, this cheese scores a 3 on their tangy rating. Tangy is not a word we have had much experience with, especially in relative terms; Tango was once celebrated to have a tangy orange taste but we feel that is not appropriate in a cheese arena. Many a night could be spent with a block of cheese and a knife, as we're sure readers would agree. So an important test with any cheese is, can it be enjoyed in a late night cheese-block-knife scenario.
Unable to keep you in suspense for any longer, the findings shall be presented.
Grated on hot food melt factor: 4/10
Knife-block enjoyment rating: (A rather disappointing) 3/10 - Too dry and salty.

Although we at Nights Templar cannot support or deny allegations that the NME is a corrupt, money grabbing, commerical machine, we can point to this article in The Guardian.

Top 8 Neighbours women

Instead of working, I've yet again managed to find something to distract me. This is by far one of my most outstanding talents.
As a result of a recent conversation, I've decided to produce a list of the best Neighbours women to date, if you can think of any additions I've missed out, tell me and I'll consider them. More likely I won't, but still, give it a try.

So, in numerical order:

1. Sarah Beaumont
2. Beth Brennan
3. Lauren Carpenter
4. Catherine O’Brien
5. Annalise Hartman
6. Henry Ramsay
7. Anne Wilkinson
8. Susan Kennedy
