    While admiring my newly sprouted potato plants this morning (the photo is above) I had an extraordinary flashback. It's 1970, my last year of high school at Vaucluse Boys High. The year 12 students (called sixth form back then) are putting on a play called The Kitchen, by Arnold Wesker, written in 1957. Looking back, that is sort of remarkable as it is, since The Kitchen is pretty much a two-word prediction about the rest of my life. Talking about two words... The play is set in the basement...
