The thing is, the Church these days is all about "Come as you are."

If that means dressing up as an asparagus, then so be it.

I doubt very much that the man dressed up as a stick of Asparagus just happened to feel the need to go to church.

He was probably quite pleased to run into another gentleman carrying a bunch of asparagus -- what a coincidence!

Well, just so long as none of them have to take a piddle while the choir sings "Asparage me Domine . . .", we'll let them have their fun, shall we?

There is a service on Sunday, at Lifton Church, to celebrate 100 years of the Ambrosia Creamed Rice / Custard factory. Now I'm wondering what on earth they are going to cook up for the occasion??

Not ever having knowingly consumed the products of Ambrosia, I can't be sure, but doubt that they'd be worth spending much on the wine. Maybe a bottle of Porphyry Pearl ( the 1960's version) would be about right.

I used to fish in Lifton (the Arundel Arms is legendary for its fishing) and from time to time a tide of sickly-sweet smelling creamy effluent would come down the Lyd and into the Tamar. It didn't seem to do the fish any harm (I'm talking 1960s to early 80s), in fact some of the best fishing I ever had was on the Tamar.
