Kick start your day with a good breakfast

A Tale of Two Cities

on February 20, 2016

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…” begins Charles Dickens’ novel of a fateful trip from London to Revolutionary Paris, A Tale of Two Cities–as any high school English student used to be able to tell you. And almost 250 years later, we’ve got another battle raging!


“Vive le croissant!”

Tesco, Britain’s biggest supermarket chain, will be making their croissants straight, not curved, because, as its croissant buyer says, ““With the crescent-shaped croissants, it’s more fiddly, and most people can take up to three attempts to achieve perfect coverage, which increases the potential for accidents involving sticky fingers and tables.” Thank God, someone has addressed the conflict of the age, Everyman’s stress at breakfast time–Brexit, be damned!

What next? I think the French should propose vegan Yorkshire pudding or hedgehog in mustard sauce (kidding! I’m with the Brits on the preciousness and protection of the hedgehog).


“I like my croissants with beetle-snail butter and jellied worms.”

There should be no fiddling with tradition, as far as I’m concerned. Would the Brits want a digital face on Big Ben?! It’d be so much easier and faster to read!
