"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    To be honest with you, I think rationing certain produce like Morrison and other supermarkets is more likely to cause a problem than solve it.

    The Daily Mirror says that vegetables are being rationed in the shops, quoting major chain Morrisons who have imposed a limit of three iceberg lettuces and three heads of broccoli per customer, across each of its 492 UK stores. And some Tesco shops are also carrying notices capping the number of lettuces to three per person.

    I don't know, but how many people usually buy three lettuces or so much broccoli normally? I would have thought something like this, you buy one at a time as they go off so quickly. But by saying it's rationed, I can imagine some people might worry and find ways to buy more than they need, 'just in case.'

    I think broccoli is costing around 40 cents a kilo here in Kathmandu!
