Asparagus, broccoli, carrots, dill, eggplant, green beans, leeks, onions, potatoes, rhubarb, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini. There you go, there’s an edible plant for just about every letter of the alphabet. Not that it makes it any easier to eat some of them – OK, you’re right, any of them. Most humans seem to have an aversion to veggies, and as far as I know nobody’s explained why that is. Experts however have been telling us for years that eating several vegetables every day is vital for long term good health. Unfortunately hardly nobody’s home when these experts speak.

The problem is that when the finals kick off there are still eight teams left. Pick the wrong one and you’d be looking for an alternative for week two, week three and the grand final.

The fact that it can take hours to leave after a game at the inner city venue seems to have escaped those who indulged in an orgy of praise before, during and after the 25-8 defeat of the Wests Tigers. I stopped going to Leichhardt Oval years ago because life’s too short to waste so many hours trying to get out of the parking areas around the ground.

Here’s why Bill’s bus crashed and burned on Saturday

The last three days all the spotlight has been on the potential new leadership of the Australian Labor Party. I say “all’’ because in the three days after Saturday’s debacle all the chatter was about why the ALP lost the unlosable election. So three cheers for Anthony Albanese, Chris BowenRead more »

What gets your goat when you go shopping

Ordinarily, going shopping can be a pleasant experience. If you regularly go to the same local shopping centre, as I do, you get to know some of the staff, who greet you with a friendly smile when you arrive. Then there’s the mingling in close proximity and interaction with yourRead more »
