I've just read PJ's 'tips' and the first one mentioned 'carrots'. Well did you know that carrots help you see in the dark. ( ever see a rabbit wearing spectacles).
During the WW11 the british started that rumour to enlighten the Germans as to why the RAF pilots could see them in the dark. In actual fact it was RADAR but that the germans didn't know about. So don't ever knock carrots PJ again. Happy New Year to all my TOFA friends.

I am eating carrots right now in a veggie stew made from a veggie platter left over from Christmas so I guess everyone would leave my house......... Sorry.. no rum balls...
