The position in the UK remains similar. Shortages of individual foods but no general food shortage. Butter is short at present. Propane remains short, even in Summer, as does kerosene. Neither is widely used. One odd shortage is white coveralls.

More lateral thinking here. This reminds me of those years when I bought the land on which our house is built now (it is a city neighbourhood). For long years I have wished I had the money to buy the neighbouring property as well. I ( being hopele
