It's just one banana peel so it is surprising that just by putting this one item in your food waste caddy so much electricity could be made.Now is quite a good time to reassess many things and if the kids are around as well then they can help and learn something - or teach you! It costs a lot more to finally dispose of anything in the waste which IS recyclable in our kerbside collections but which we have failed to put in the recycling.

Well a four day week is much closer for many now. Not fewer hours just extending the hours on the days worked so that the same amount are covered and one day is free for other things.Many are now enjoying not having to commute into work everyday. I expect they'll go back but for many it will be more flexible so that other chores can be fitted in nearer home with less travelling.

In fact what happened to many things featured on Tomorrow's World? By now we should all have been working a three day week for the past twenty years or retiring at 50 and with a robot to do the housework.I blame Raymond Baxter..

I remember ZETA from tomorrows world in the sixties. One cup of sea water would produce enough electricity for a town for an evening. What happened to it?????

Veg Hacks from Riverford are brilliant. Short and simple - so easy to remember and have a go at unlike many complicated recipes. The last one I watched was not only using a complete leek except for the root but also on toast. So wins on two of my cookery supper wants - no (well absolutely minimal) and on toast.We're fitter than we were pre-pandemic with the regular walking and stricter meals and not as stressed - so no ready meals! Still dream of banana bread - but never have any bananas left over.

No, someone told me it was a fast charge banana, that will teach me to get it from Amazon.

You were probably using a pre brexit banana,NV.You will find that bananas are the correct shape now we have left the EU.

I would have bet my last Pound that we were due a daily recycling sermon and that Brexit would be mentioned in the same thread
