Try to persuade Waitrose to give you a job.  I love your site - and I have to 
manage to buy my groceries every week from Waitrose. :-(  (Their site is one 
of my pet bugbears.)

It is so refreshing to meet a site that seems to have a priority of giving 
information.  If I want "pretty" I'll go to KDE-look.org and chose a new 
screensaver or background.  And anyway, I think that it looks nice.  

But then I like things to look functional.  Compare Brunel's beautiful 
suspension bridge at Clifton 1), designed by an engineer to work, with the 
Millennium bridge 2), designed by an architect to look nice.  It doesn't look 
nice, and when people first crossed it, it swayed.

Thank you very much for your site.  I hope that we are going to be allowed to 
keep it!
