Actually I think Greek/Cypriot olives and olive oil are the best ill find the link later. Even valuable California agri land is used to grow kalamata olives...

Get very disappointed with commercial olive oils... almost all of them are factory refined and all the taste of the earth (and isn't that the flavour we're after?) is filtered out of them. These mass-produced "extra virgin" practically colourless (!) oils are particularly lacking in taste and only rich in marketing... :(

Nothing like the taste of real olive oil where a small producer has taken their few buckets of olives down to the local press. If you can't get hold of a bottle of that... well, you might as well dress the salad with a cheapo vegetable cooking oil... :(

I disagree. We should produce cheap olive oil too... for Brits and other northern European cheapos! :lol:

Lordo has found another good use of olive oil... so he doesn't have to spend money on vaseline anymore.

I hope Boots doesn't go bankrupt, because he was their best customer. :mrgreen:

Turkey is not simply a candidate for European Union membership, but is a candidate for the union’s leadership, EU Minister Egemen Bağış said today

More evidence that the normally nice to Turkey Enlargement Commissioner, Mr Fule, is taking the hard-line with no Chapters opened 'til Turkey implements the Additional Protocol to the Association Agreement and normalises its relations with the Republic.

Reported by Hurriyet...

"...Responding to Davutoğlu’s speech, Füle underlined the bloc’s determination to implement the additional protocol by Turkey to all member states. “I have also underlined that the implementation of the Additional Protocol would inject new life into the accession process. Several chapters could be opened and some even closed relatively quickly. In relation to this, we could turn this ‘one-flower policy’ Minister Davutoğlu was mentioning in the context of the possibility to open one chapter soon, into a flourishing garden of several chapters,” Füle said. ..."

Could it be possible that the remaining chapters for Eu membership, couldn't be fulfilled by the Turks even if opened ..what are they?
