The good news

Never mind about the euro.  Let us concentrate on important matters, such as brussels sprouts.  The Telegraph reports:
It has been an exceptionally good year for the much-maligned vegetable, which has ripened three weeks earlier than usual.
Most weigh 25g instead of 20g and are particularly sweet and flavoursome, thanks to the unusually warm winter weather.

Last year Britain suffered a shortage of sprouts due to freezing conditions. But experts said there should not be a repeat this year following perfect growing conditions, including a dry spring, summer rains and the recent mild spell. 
 So all is well in this best of all possible worlds ...
