    Do you observe Lent, and give up something? Do you make pancakes today too?

    Well Pope Benny beat us to the best "giving up" of all for Lent...his job.

    I don't give up anything that I enjoy. There has been too much doom and gloom in this country already.

    But I do make pancakes.

    Eaten on the spot, devoured even.

    And what's leftover is in the freezer for another sweet or savoury day when pennies are tight.

    What about you?

    So you give up something that you don't enjoy? Then why eat it the other part of the year if you don't enjoy it?

    Yuck! Strawberry all the way. Although golden syrup and banana is to die for.
