...but crooked smiles all around this Hallows eve.

A few of the molecules spent their lunchtime today hacking at fruit with sharp knives. What fun!

* When I were’t lad we’d carve our lanterns out of turnips or swedes (rutabaga). Not only could pumpkins not be bought for love nor money in the Land of Scots in the early ‘80s, but this tradition actually pre-dates the carving of pumpkins.

Unfortunately you’ll need to have the dexterity, strength and perseverance of a small mountain goat if you wish to scoop out the hardened innards of a turnip. Good luck with that li’l project…
