      Bugger, those who commented the other week about Emmerson being rabidly Left will have to … no, start again.

      Typical, rabid Left cartoonist trying to depict Labour as having the potential to be tarted up to have some sort of attractiveness.

            I’ll have to go get one. If I get 3 two of them will probably expire of loneliness.
            Gone off them for some reason. Except as banana fritters. Expired ones are good that.

              banana’s are the perfect food.

              I was in Melbourne during the great banana shortage, (after a cyclone that wiped out 90% of the crops in Queensland & the Govt wouldn’t allow banana’s be imported), anyway during that time they reported that bananas are a natural anti-depressant and if you eat them regularly you are less susceptible to the mid-winter blues, not to mention they keep you happy. 😀 add into that all the other good stuff (like potassium) they are perfect.

              I usually have at least one banana a day.

              I think the problem is the ones they have here are just too big, & cut one in the fridge always looks a bit depressed the next day.
              But … Righto. 👍 I’ll give it a bash for a week. If my comments stsrt seeming less gloomy, let me know.

    The greatest political predictor in the history of the world finds himself with some spare time and uses it to solve the North Korea problem. By cleverly reframing the problem from a win-lose to a win-win, he gives both sides what they need even if it is not exactly what they have said they want. This guy should be in the big house calling the shots…
