outlook control mushrooms
Some mechanics from the car work shop in Mount Sion have got hold of some remote controlled racing model cars which they are playing with in the street. Makes a change from servicing full size motor cars. Even more of a change, there is a motor bike in the collection which they race along the road. When it comes to the sleeping policeman hump it doesn't slow down but performs a somersault, lands on its wheels and continues on its way.
In some of the flowerbeds in The Grove mushrooms are beginning to appear. They are growing out of what may well be used mushroom compost. Or perhaps the stuff called forest loam employed to keep weeds down in shrubberies. The mushrooms bring to mind my late Mother-in-Law who proudly used to point out tomato plants growing in her flower border. "They are from the compost we buy from the sewage farm", she would say, "passed through the human gut".
