Bradford "Wastefield"

The Cheapside "redevelopment" isn't universally popular.... As well as this there were poems on the hoardings asking why the city had been pulled down, and "construction" replaced with "destruction". Cheapside is currently a big hole partly filled with rubble. What was there before wasn't exactly fantastic but at least it was something. It was snowing quite heavily when I took this, hence the white bits in the picture. Just a thought: instead of knocking down the old Odeon cinema, why not put the identikit office building here instead?

Apparently my main xmas present this year is a digital camera (at the moment I'm using a mobile phone camera) but it's still stuck at a parcel depot somewhere in Dewsbury.

From http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/jul/01/elizabeth-david-food-cookbook. This being the Grauniad, it starts off with a correction:
A misprint meant that anybody essaying the macaroni salad recipe at the end of the piece below would have had even more grounds than the late Elizabeth David to detest this dish. As a reader wrote: "Try 'peas' instead of 'pears'. Better?"

Even allowing for that, you might want a bucket handy. There are nice ways to do pasta salad, but this isn't one of them.

Italian salad
1 pint cold cooked macaroni
½ pint cooked or tinned pears (nb: these should be peas)
½ pint grated raw carrot
French dressing to moisten
2 heaped tablespoons minced onion
½ pint cooked or minced string beans

Mix the chopped macaroni and vegetables; moisten with French dressing, flavouring with garlic if liked. Serve on a dish lined with lettuce leaves. Decorate with mayonnaise and minced pimento or chives.
