Baker drops by with the goods
A CERTAIN elected official who enjoys a spot of baking when the mood takes him was busy this week with a number of creations - though this tale concerns just one.
The jam drop.
It's a staple recipe that can be found in countless family cookbooks around the country.
Posting a picture of his little, golden creations to social media however elicited an unsurprising but also perhaps made-in-jest-request from one of the punters: "Can you drop off some at my place?"
Whispers is reliably informed that in no time at all, the pastry chef boxed up a batch and hit the road, much to the surprise and delight of the person on the receiving end.
IN THIS day and age, with crime running rampant and dope fiends on every corner, you can never have too much security, or so Whispers thinks.
Motion sensors, electrified fences, high definition video cameras, trip-wires - it's good to be prepared for when someone decides to drop by unannounced and make off with your valuables.
But it's also a double-edged sword, as one Whispers informant discovered this week.
Scarcely two hours had passed since the informant and her boyfriend installed a new security camera system, when dark storm clouds gathered over the Garden City.
Sprinting for the clothes line to rescue her freshly laundered garments, the lass unfortunately "come a cropper" as they used to say, or in modern terms, "stacked it good", right in front of one of those new cameras.
Whispers is assured that is one piece of footage that will not be deleted any time soon.
