Brussels Sprout Stalks

In the run up to Christmas, the markets fill up with all manner of unnecessary items; heavily promoted by "celebrity" chefs, earning a crust from the major food producers and supermarket chains.

One such item being Brussels sprouts still on their stalks.

Loose Brussels sprouts represent far better value for money.

PDF Downloads

Whenever I see the extension .pdf on a link my heart sinks.

PDF files are, to my view, the slowest and most irritating form of download on the planet.
