Light Pollution

http://www.cpre.org.uk/campaigns/landscape/light-pollution

I know there are some really pressing issues in the world, like the divide between rich and poor, world peace and melting ice caps, but couldn't we just see switch off some lights so that we can see the stars again? If everyone could see the stars, then it might help all the other issues. For a start we'd all get the decent nights' sleep that we need to stop us getting nasty illnesses like breast cancer, sleep deprivation insanity and grumpiness. And we would be stilled by a sense of peace and wonder, which has to be a good thing. We just need to get some plastic masks fitted on the street lamps.

By the way Madeleine Peyroux's 'A Little Bit">is my favourite song at the moment.

The other thing you need to know on this quiet January night is that Pumpkin pizza is God's Own Food. I made my darling son wait an hour for his supper while I made it, but it turned out to be worth the wait. You will find it on p82 of ">Apples of Jam by Tessa Kiros. By the way, said book is the best recipe book I have ever read. It's less a recipe book, more a manual of idyllic childhood.
