Default The Marmite Experts

Audrey used Google to look for information about using Marmite to keep flies away from horses. Guess what came near the top of the list -- the DTP forum.

Are we the font of all knowledge?

Of course! However, if she searched on Vegemite to keep flies away from horses, she wouldn't get the DressageIT forum, because Vegemite is far too tasty to waste on keeping flies off horses.

On the long gone UK Travel forum we once had a 150 message thread about Marmite. That was about 10 years ago.........

Writing about it must be better than actually eating the stuff!

Default Explaining Marmite and Vegemite

You might explain Marmite and Vegemite to the Americans in here, who otherwise won't have a clue, at least without searching them out on Google.

I had an English girlfriend years ago, so from her and her sister I know about these products, although I would never eat them. She did have me eating some kinds of chutney, though.
