Cucumbers are my kind of vegetables. They’re not in the league of mushrooms I grant you, but who is?
But they are easy to prepare… and if you want to go to a lot of bother you can even slice them before eating.
Which we’ve been doing for our new house guests Poo and Pee, our lockdown gifts to ourselves, our guinea pigs.
All of which prompted Daddy’s Little Girl to point me in the direction of this Jamaican rapper and his contribution to the panoply of music.
I give you Macka B and Cucumba https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dRGlon_ezvU.
I should by now already have visited Jamaica.
Only I had double-booked by sending a colleague to Orlando to satisfy his rollercoaster addiction and who can blame him? See www.vistorlando.com and Aaawlando… Orlando, the rollercoaster capital, See off Voldemort, then for a beer at Moe’s and Why I love The Donald.
So Jamaica had to be put on hold while I did the TV column that week… something by the remarkably unfunny Amy Huberman I remember.
The good folk from Jamaica promised they would have me back… cannot wait https://www.visitjamaica.com.

The last dance
Our friends in the Travel Trade have been showing remarkable resilience and bonhomie as they wrestle with the worst thing ever to have hit our industry.
And few more than our friends at Travel Biz http://travelbiz.ie who have been putting on a Friday night Zoom disco over the last couple of months.
It was bittersweet then to take to the dance floor (my study) on Friday for the last time.
But it does mean that TravelBiz and all our other Trade professionals and holiday providers who are the most important people of all are ready for the off.
Here’s a little more of the fun.
MEET YOU ON THE DANCE FLOOR
