Bananas the key to Supermarket success ?

ImageAre bananas the key to supermarket success?

Apparantly they are the most popular purchased items ( or at least one of the top ones )

Now most of like our “daily banana” at our lunch or to eat through the day.

One thing about the fruit is that they dont stay fresh for too long do they? Probably 3 days in the house will see them at their peak

So what do you need to do if your a banana muncher ?  You have to go back to the supermarket don’t you ?   And do you just buy bananas?  No – I thought not !!

So these bananas have us trekking to our local s/market at least twice and probably 3 times a week

Wonder if we could grow our own ? Image

Radio and music in the UK

ImageThis    blog is about the almost complete lack of diversity of the Music you can listen to on the radio in the UK.

The gist of what I’m saying is that of all the millions of recordings of music made, what you can heae on the radio on UK radio stations is extremely limited to say the least.

The commercial stations in particular seem to broadcast nothing but top 40 or ex top 40 and repeat the same tracks time after time after time.

( it can get a little bit better at night time but not much.)

Travel through the country on the motoways and it all seems a monotonous blob with nearly all the stations sounding clones of the other.

I end up playing a CD or just switching off.

Does it need to be like this though?  Why not some Cuban music or dedicated country radio stations ( or whatever “type” you may want ).

At the moment the choice is truly dire ….surely there’s room for more variety rather than more of the same ?
