homicide? what the hell kind of word is that when describing Wath? It's a murder investigation, not an americanisation, or CSI Wath

The word Homicide does not come from America,
The word homicide comes from the 14th century. It originates from Middle English, from Old French, from the Latin word homicidium, from the word homo, and homin- meaning 'man.'
The word "homicide" , meaning a killing of one human by another, originates in Latin and Old French learning, taking "homo" to mean man, and "cide" to mean the act of killing.

@ Miranda – Yes, I rinse raspberries lightly right before I use them and then pat dry. As with most fruits, you should never rinse and then refrigerate as it speeds up the ripening process!
