We found some freaky looking bones in our back garden. We live in North West London, so there's not much in the way of large mammalian traffic around these parts. Any ideas?
In the past three years I have had two fairly major bone breaks. Neither has healed (bone parts have not fused back together). Is it likely I have some condition which prevents this? What symptoms should I look for? Does this question need to be resolved before I have surgery to plate this last bone back together? [more inside]

I recently made an online purchase for a necklace made with a bird skull, shipped from the UK to the U.S. Seller said it shipped on March 17, and general guidelines seem to be 5-7 days for items to arrive here from the UK (which has been my experience with other mailed items in the past). However the package hasn't arrived yet and I'm wondering if it was delayed by customs. [more inside]
Settle an argument about making stock for cooking. One half says that you should save every odd and end from vegetables and keep them in a big ziploc bag in the freezer for when you make stock so it can get the most varied amount of flavor possible and "recycle" kitchen waste. Other half says that since we're not making vegetable stock and only ever make stock with left over bones you should just keep to the basic recipie ( carrots, onion, celery, etc) and not introduce all these unknown cauliflower ends and parsnip bits and it's a false economy anyway. Who is right? Is anyone right? Are they both right?
