Don’t believe them …


I used to be a cook. From 1971 to 1986 I was a cook at the Leeds General Infirmary. In fact from 1983 to 1986, I was the Head Cook in the staff kitchen. All this is a little bit of background information for what I want to have a chat about. That chat is … Continue reading Don’t believe them …

Whilst I been thinking about this, I’ve also been looking up on the Internet about ‘what makes a … Continue reading Just write something …
