Homemade crisps experiment.

Slice finely, 1 potato per person.

Wash of the starch and leave to dry.

Mix slices in a little oil, salt spices.

Overdid it a bit 8min at 750w microwave, but not bad!

From 's letter to .

"Since the result in 2016, you have consistently insisted that you would respect the result of the referendum. However rather than recognise the clear vote to remain in and the 48% across the who voted to remain, you have reached out only to those who supported exit and most often to those who advocated a hard , outside the Single Market and Customs Union.

Whoever made this is a genius.

"Yalp Store lets you download apps directly from Google Play Store as apk files. It can search for updates of installed apps and lets you search for other apps. Yalp saves downloaded apks to your default download folder."

Yalp is available from F-Droid.

You can use the Play Store without a Google account but you cannot download paid apps. Yalp also handles the updates too.
