An Army Marches on Its Stomach


My Christmas has now begun, since Helena has arrived. She very kindly brought me (among other things) a special present, which turned out to be... a tin of green beans.

The green bean famine now appears to be over - they are back on all the shelves, and with Helena's gift I had 10 tins - enough to make 5 green bean casseroles. She's not been here a day yet, and we've already eaten one of the tins. I've also had a request to make GBC for tomorrow.

We'll need all this sustenance to launch our bids for pan-galactic domination.

Helena loves board games, and I'm typing this in a hurry, since we've got "Star Wars Risk" to play. This is possibly a bit ambitious as the aim is to take over the Galaxy, conquering planets such as Bpfassh. The most difficult bit, therefore, will be working out how to pronounce all the crazy names...

Wish us luck...

You can thank the exposure we've given the green bean shortage or it could be as I suspected and the shortage was due to Thanksgiving...

They probably just kept them off the market to raise the demand thus the price.

I was in bed a long time today cuz by dreadful dog barked all night until I had to fill the water gun and squirt her, then I was full og adrenaline with all that shooting and couldn't sleep.

Bee:

I'm sure you're right and these global shortages are down to excessive consumption by Americans - They should have had targets for it at Bali - Where's Al when you need him ;-)

Jean Knee:

Yahtzee's fun.

I might do a post later. My online time is being very limited by having Helena here...
