LSNE - 22nd September

Today I had a banana on my cereal!  Woo Hoo monumental day!!  For the better part of a year I have been buying bananas in one and twos only and they have been carefully handed out to the boy for school lunches because with braces he finds it hard to eat any other fruit.  The terrible cyclone and storms that ravished northern Queensland at the end of last year and early this one not only caused massive damage to homes and livelihoods but they decimated crops of bananas.  Prices sky rocketed but now at long last trees have regrown and fruit is back to being plentiful and with it the prices are back to affordable.  I have missed my bananas.
