Bits And Pieces

I began a couple of political posts but abandoned them both because what do I know about these people and events that isn't second or third hand? 

It's been a sunny day, but the air is cold. This morning it even smelled cold- as if it had blown in over an ice field.

I learned to fix myself egg and chips when I was 18 and living in digs in Sheffield. These days we have a low fat frier. You cut up your potatoes, soak them in cold water for 20 minutes, dry them, sprinkle with oil and cook in the machine for another 20 minutes. The resulting chips are as good as any I've ever eaten at home or elsewhere.
