*** The Green Peppercorn, Morningside Shopping Centre
The menus have now been pasted into books - sad loss of the opening to the
story, but a useful resource if the service is slow! We
dropped in for lunch and made some mistakes. We should have asked for the
beverage menu as the ordered Ceylon tea was indeed Ceylon but an exotic black
tea and not the one expected. The glass of red wine, however, was more
I ordered the Bone Marrow and had to go through exactly what I didn't want
with it, so ended up with salsa. The marrow was very good indeed and
gloriously messy. It should have been served with a finger bowl!
The cheddar omelette was a big disappointment. Service by Llyod (is his
name spelt right on the till slip?) was good. I did ask about the
restaurant being more Banting friendly and was told that their attempt was a
complete failure. The fact that the steak was being served with polenta
may be the reason. I did point out that this is not a Banting choice.
It's a pity. This restaurant used to be so good.

Enjoy It While You've Got It
Julius decided to try a new Psychiatrist, who asked: "Do any of your family suffer from mental illness?"
"No, they all seem to enjoy it."
Most of the litter that people drop in the street, or thoughtlessly toss out
of cars, gets washed into the stormwater drains and thence into our rivers like
the Braamfontein Spruit and the Sandspruit. There it makes the banks
unsightly and, if nobody picks it up, it washes down into the lake of
Hartbeespoort Dam. Eventually it may end up in the sea, where vast areas
are now covered in floating human-made pollution.
What is so difficult about not littering? Just keep your
rubbish until you get home or find a rubbish bin, then put it in the
bin. If you see others littering, educate them. This is your
country and your planet: Treat it as your home and look after it!
