Being away from this blog far too long! Due to a hubble of bank holidays, new markets & other little too personal things, I haven't allowed myself the time to write.
A philosophical background doesn't entail to write , without having read first.
Few success stories to tell:
#Goulash & #ChilliConCarne are becoming a popular way in Greenwich Market to sample our bread ( That splash of beer in the stew as a secret ingredient may help ).
Above any expectation,... perhaps even bypassing the ones brought in from Mary Porta's TV show, artisan bread in Roman Road Market is selling like hot cakes ( or mash&pie if you prefer).
To autocelebrate our comeback in Covent Garden Piazza with our pink wall of giant raspberry meringues, I would indulge with words which are both funny and thoughtful like the following ones:

You've read of several kinds of Cat,
And my opinion now is that

to understand their character.
You now have
learned enough to see
That Cats are much like you and me
And other people
whome we find
Possessed of various types of mind.
For some are sane and
some are mad
And some are good and some are bad
And some are better, some

But all may be described in verse.
You've seen them both at
work and games,

Their habits and

So first, your memory I'll jog,
And say: A CAT IS NOT A DOG.
Now Dogs pretend they like to fight;
They often bark, more seldom
But yet a Dog is, on the whole,
What you would call a simple
Of course I'm not including Pekes,
And such fantastic canine
The usual Dog about the Town
Is much inclined to play the
And far from showing too much pride
He's very easily taken in -
Just chuck him underneath the
Or slap his back or shake his paw,
And he will gambol and
He's such an easy-going lout,
He'll answer any hail or
Again I must remind you that
A Dog's a Dog - A CAT'S A CAT.
With Cats, some say, one rule is true:
Don't speak till you are spoken
Myself, I do not hold with that -
I say, you should ad-dress a
But always keep in mind that he
I bow, and
taking off my hat,
Ad-dress him in this form: O CAT!
But if he is the Cat
Whom I have often met before
(He comes to see me in my

I've heard them call him James
But we've not got so far as names.
Before a Cat will
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of

And you might now and then
