Thought it endearing the lad kept mentioning his mother's method - I wondered if he worried she was listening, wooden spoon in her hand, ready to rap his knuckles if he got anything wrong.

I understand the Kiwis are the "true" creators of same and there's been a pavlova war with Oz for years over it.

And I see as darkness falls that Sunny D tanker is emitting a luminous glow. Anyone who's been drinking it won't be hard to find. Hi Lucien!

And you're welcome to it. Ah yes, it's parked over there, next to that lorry with the revolving tank. I wonder what that's doing there ....*patter patter patter*I might have know. It's an articulated candy floss dispenser. Heaven awaits you, Lucien.
