Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Whither Paradise?

Here’s a thought for a Sunday morning: if Eve had only eaten a pear instead of an apple, would we all still be living in Paradise?

This pear was not as juicy as I’d hoped, but as easy breakfasts go, it”s just about perfect. With oranges and grapes, you’ve got to deal with the seeds; when you peel kiwi and papaya, you lose some of the fruit; bananas go rotten so quickly. Both apples and pears are inexpensive, portable, don’t require peeling, and you can eat right down to the core. So where was the pear tree for Eve to turn to, to show that snake in the grass she wasn’t born yesterday.
