Stress City

How did this day start - I wonder! A full Irish breakfast - an extra this morning was a plate of cold cuts and cheese. Naturally I had to try a bit, just to compare, having first established that the cheese was, in fact, Irish. The cheese was - just cheese! The ham tasted like ours (surprise, surprise), but was a different texture, which surprised …
