The first day of April stories are a great thing, especially when you have to wonder about their possible truth, here are some I have enjoyed this year.
Firstly From the Guardian came dramatic news Exclusive: royal family considering dramatic Brexit intervention
Then I got a report from Gloucester RFC supporters that Twickenham was going “back to basics” and was to be a cabbage patch again.
Twickenham transformed back into cabbage patch The hallowed turf at Twickenham has been transformed into its original state – a cabbage patch. In advance of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series finale on 21- 22 May 2016 – which will see a festival of rugby and food transform Twickenham – event organisers have gone back to the roots of the world famous stadium and prepped the ground ready to plant cabbages.
Finally a couple of dental stories made me sit up:
Two dental specialists Mr Tatlock and Dr Barlow were set to be reprimanded over a so called Frankenstein case.
And news of a new orthodontic system, Speedy Grins, described by Simon Thackeray – which I’m sure Simon & I discussed a few months ago.
I am not old enough to remember the Panorama story about the spaghetti harvest, although I do remember my mother talking about it.
