What does Sean Connery eat and other quandaries of modern life?

For those with a spare few minutes an examination of freedom of information disclosures is always entertaining.  All disclosures from the Scottish Executive are listed in one conveniently accessible webpage and reveal the following:

What did Sir Sean and Lady Connery have for dinner with Alex Salmond to mark the opening of the 3rd session of the Scottish parliament?

The menu was:

Proscuitto di Parma, Mozzarella di Bufala, Tomatoes and Chargrilled Vegetables with Bruschetta

Wild Scottish Sea Bass roasted with Italian Herbs, Salsa Verde and Fresh Summer Salad

Gorgonzola Dolce, Loch Arthur Mature Farmhouse Cheese, Criffel, Homemade Oatcakes and Grissini

Torta di Limone

What was stolen from the Scottish Executive during 2005-6 and 2006-7?

In 2005-6 these included 4 laptops, 8 instances of cash being stolen (the value not given), 3 wallets, 3 items of clothing (unidentified), 3 projectors, 2 mobile phones, 1 credit card, 1 cheque, 1 PC and screen (!), 1 PC base unit, 1 Blackberry, 1 mouse (presumably IT related rather than Cathy Jamieson’s pet squeaker), 1 audio conferencing unit, 1 unofficial file, 1 mountain bike (a mountain bike?), and 1 bolt from a bike pedal (the swine…).

In 2006-7 the stolen items included 2 instances of cash, 2 laptops, 1 PC, 1 flash drive, 1 wallet, 1 briefcase, 1 suit (how on earth do you lose a suit?), 1 kettle, and 1 mug/flask. 

Occasional updates will follow.
