On a Wednesday Jan 7 1942, LJB aka Vest; weighing in at 42kg, a 4ft eleven inch fifteen year and five month old piece of human cannon fodder was presented to the British Royal Navy by the Watts Naval School (Barnardo's). for a (Finder's Fee) of Twenty five pounds Sterling -.an unaccountable backhander. Chapter 13 My first career. From my memoirs WGTATF. Click on the pic top of page.
Read in today's Sydney Daily Telegraph (delivered daily to my door) that food prices in Australia had plummeted. over the past year., apart from fish with an increase of 0.9 % and eggs 3.3%. The main decrease in food prices are attributed to Vegetables falling in price by 9.9% , Lamb by 5.7% and Poultry by 4.3 % ...it seems we are now leading the western world in the lower food price game... However, from my own observations, buying veggies from the local greengrocer to the big veggie shops in large retail centres., I am being frequently asked the same question by the checkout person when having paid my bill, "Would you like a receipt sir"... That statement will conjure up the possibility that the transaction is not being recorded for purposes of Taxation. and obviously there must be others being asked the same question. One thing springs to mind that there is 'No sale" on items being sold and being written off illegally as spoilt and unsaleable. Or do you think I am being cynical... However, I believe it is far better to grow your own if you have time to spare and are not blessed with unlimited resources... Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap... but the seeds you plant... Vest... Back soon.
