    Very interesting about the smelts, thanks!

    The story about restaurants seeing an upturn in business looks like wishful thinking to me. Here in the UK most are reporting increased customer numbers, but REDUCED takings, because of special offers etc. Promotions etc can only last so long before they cut into the bottom line.
