Extract from Article:
Yes, it is true. Shameful but true. It is always difficult for the children of those involved in criminal activities to confront their past and the social stigmas associated with such behavior, but at some time it must be faced. My mother was a Margarine Smuggler. (My hand shakes still as I type this.) In the Wisconsin of the mid 20th century it was illegal to sell margarine. At all. Pe.....

My Mother made wonderful macaroni pudding.

I don't know if that counts, as the man said, handing over the broken abacus.

Did she use Bird Custard, wonderful stuff, mine made rice pudding with it.

Can you hear this over the screaming xylophones?

Good evening Victor. Yes, she used custard, most likely Bird's. She made rice pudding too, with wonderful skin on it.

Hard to imagine discord in the world coming from men once boys raised on rice pudding Erskine.

Are you up for a game of seven ball.

Ah yes, the waving meadow, the smell of fresh hay, the cuckoo in early Summer, and rice pudding all year round.

A man who weeps at the memory of the curlew's mournful skirl can hardly entertain thoughts of war, Victor.

But fighting for rice pudding I understand, that would be a call to arms.

Of course, if ever there were a call to arms one should heed, that would be it.

Which brings me to the famous Corsican explorer, Tesco Van Morrison.

He it was who introduced the concept of the milk pudding to the bottle-nosed pygmies of the Javanese hinterlands. Not long after, their neighbours and rivals, the blue-eared bone-collectors, were to be found worshipping the steamed pudding in their wicker temples in the wake of the explorer.

Benevolent though his intention may have been, it was the intervention of Tesco Van Morrison that set in train the infamous "100 Year Pygmy Pudding Wars" of the Javanese hinterlands.

Surely therein lies a lesson for us all. "Let a pudding steam splendidly in the right kitchen and all is well", as the old North Country proverb has it.

Wise words.

My mother believed everything had its place and that rice pudding belonged in the kitchen.

One should not meddle with the laws of nature when it come to confectionary.

Fortunately for us, my mother was less rigid in her criteria. For us, rice pudding was allowed in our stomachs as well as in the kitchen. Hence we were allowed to go out once we had eaten the pudding.

If we had been forced to stay in the kitchen until we had digested the pudding, we would no doubt have got in her way.

I imagine logic such as this being expounded by Aristotle in Athens 3,000 years ago Eskine though perhaps over dolmades instead of rice pudding.

A keen evaluation as always.
