Strawberry Moon

Is it me or do strawberries not have the same taste they did 20 or 30 years ago? I don’t want to sound like a ‘Wenwe’ – one of those really boring people who think that things were better when they were kids – but strawberries tasted like strawberries when I was little.

Nowadays, they taste like some indecipherable, homogenous blob of nothing that looks a bit like strawberries.

Apart from that one you eat close to the end of the punnet which tastes sweet and fresh and, well, of strawberries.

Strawberries used to have a central solid core that you could pull out by grabbing the leaves and stalk. Whatever happened to that? Progress, eh?

Policemen are looking younger too, aren't they? And isn't chocolate expensive? Weren't Sundays better when you got chucked out of the pub at 3 o'clock? Remember when Christmas began in late November, rather than late August? Bring back Spangles etc etc

Hullo Jacko - welcome to the 'hood.
