The latest issue of ....

...the Catholic Times has a feature about the Beans on Toast girl. You don't know who she is? You do, actually, if you've been following the Papal Visit. Remember that wonderful placard which said cheerily "We love U, Papa, more than beans on toast!" and the other one that said "Give it some welly for the Pope in the Park"? The media loved it...so did we. And various newspapers and TV tracked down the young lady and her chums who produced these particular placards, and found they were delightful - pick up a copy of the Cath. Times in your local RC church and read more (but hurry - new edition of the paper comes out on Friday and this is in the current one). The young people would like, they said, to go to Rome and explain to the H. Father about beans-on-toast (and, presumably wellies - he could have done with some at Cofton where it was so damp)...

Auntie Joanna: What is the recipe for "baked beans" in the UK?
We have a British lad with us and I made "baked beans" the way we have them here in the USA...and he said they were "too sweet"...what's the difference?
I made them the way my Mum made them (with brown sugar)...but maybe that's not the way you make them there in the UK...can you help me out?? Really!! Would appreciate it!

I liked the placard that read "We love our German shepherd"
