I am presently on holiday in Kyrgyzstan.  Marvelous alpine scenery, good walking and food and friendly people.

All the market stalls use Morrison's plastic bags.  There must have been a huge cancelled order when the change over happened in the UK.

Due to a periodically defective memory, I seem to have accumulated half a dozen 'bags for life' from sainsbo's. Will I live to be 150 or can I extend my life by buying more?

Of course it'll work. (I hope).

Bags for life can pose food poisoning risk - Food Standards Agency

I've never been a fan of "bags for life", prefering either paper bags instead or using plastic bags multiple times then disposing of them in a responsible manner - the latter being shown to be the least imact on the environment (other than no bag which I often do as im often in a position where impulse purchase I have no alternative with me) taking everything into account.
