A sprout is for breakfast, not just for christmas

Just heard on the news that the British Sprout Growers Association is spending a 6 figure sum on persuading us that the sprout is for more than christmas dinner. Apparently a "top chef" is recommending that we have sprout omelette for breakfast… Interestingly a search on the BBC for this news throws up a very similar story from 2 years ago. They gotta keep trying I suppose, but please… Sprout Omelette? Sprout Quiche? Eurgh…

18 in a row. 18!

Oh my God… What a fortnight for English rubgy – we’ve played out of our skins and we’ve beaten all three of the Southern Hemisphere teams. And we have a world beating 18 wins at home in a row. Beating the Springboks today 53-3 almost makes you forget the fact that we’re 36 for 3 in the 2nd innings of the second test in Adelaide.

Roll on the world cup – we’ll have ’em all…

All I need now is for Gloucester to beat Leeds tomorrow and I’ll forget the cricket altogether.
