    Willfully and recklessly squeezed avocados could re-badged as “Pre-smashed Organically bruised Gourmet breakfast fruits” and sold at a somewhat higher price than their untouched kin.
    That’s one way to handle what has become quite a pressing issue.

      A pre-smashed avodcado, how have we survived such deprivation for so long?

    An essential next step to the capital offence for playing Christmas carols should apply the same penalty to deliberate playing of any music louder than air-conditioner hum without the written consent of all shoppers on the premises.

    It’s almost March. Must be about time for the bunting to go up and the pre-Xmas sales to start.

      To know whereabouts we are into a festive season, follow the pastry trail !
      I think our local supermarket duopoly started selling hot cross buns on the 2nd of Jan. so we know Easter is only a moment away. Around about the 3rd of April the fruit mince pies will be available, which means Xmas is only just around the corner.
