PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

SHROVE TUESDAY – PANCAKE DAY

pancakes
DOUGH – NUT was the local name for Shrove Tuesday
 
In 1832 records say 
 
Mothers “make a good store of small cakes fried in hog’s lard,
placed over the fire in a brass kettle or skillet called “dough-nuts”.
 
But pancakes became the genuinely old custom from 1619 
when it was fun to toss food was well understood from early times.
 
It was the day whereon both rich and poor
Are chiefly feasted with the self same dish
Where every paunch, till it can hold no more
Is fritters filled,as well as heart can wish;
And every man and maid do take their turn,
And toss their pancakes up for fear they burn;
And all the kitchen doth with laughter sound,
To see the pancakes fall upon the ground.
