    Hmmm.

    So I had a chat with my friendly, local bean supplier and he provided me with some "special" beans he assured me would resolve the freeloader problem. They had an .... ummm .... unique flavour.

    Turns out I wasn't quite as popular (except among those I had chosen to warn) as it had seemed. But it resolved the issue. Except, one individual seemed to have a cast-iron gizzard. Eventually, I treated him to a double-strength dose of my "special" beans. His gizzard might have been cast-iron but apparently his bowels weren't. They also weren't flame-proof. He developed a taste for tea after that. And we all avoided that loo for about a week.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".
