Lemon Grass is great for cooking Thai cuisine or simply used in plain old chicken soup.

Polly needs a home: I am hoping that someone out there can provide a new home for my lovely dog Polly. Due to bereavement I have to return to the U.K. shortly and will not be able to take Polly with me. She is a black Labrador mix and medium sized. She is a friendly, lovable dog, approximately eight years old and her ideal home would be in the campo with a garden, which she is used to. Messages can be sent to lizalone@me.com and calls can be made to 0034633454869, preferably in the evening. Thank you. Liz/Competa
