Quote of the day

A cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out, as good for nothing.

Dr. Samuel Johnson (1709-84)

  1. This is a terrific painting, you have a great talent – I draw “stick men”!

    And that quote is great! – When I was a child we always had cucumber thinly sliced, skin removed, soaked in vinegar (no pepper though). It was like eating soggy seeds!
