Foods of nations


Taking a walk on the High Street,

On a Carnival Day

My adventure through an aromatic sea,

Where countries have displayed,

An awesome feast for the mouth,

Oh no, the eyes saw it first,

It’s the community spirit that  added,

The little significant bits,

And made it so special.


The plate before loading…


Why is washing up one of those things people hate to do, when they still need clean plates to eat from?  When sharing a flat or a house you can bet if there is a disagreement it is going to be over the filthy plates in the sink.  Even among family siblings quarrel over the washing up.  Now that there is the dishwasher, I hear something else.  “Who did not scrape the food from plates before loading the dishwasher?”  Sure, the plates are still filthy.
