"A stumbling visitor has destroyed a set of priceless vases which stood on a shelf for 40 years. The 300-year-old Qing vases were among the best known artefacts at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. The visitor is said to have slipped on a loose shoelace and fallen down a staircase bringing the vases crashing down as he tried to steady himself."
Poor bloke. He's alright after his fall though and walked off after being seen by some medics.

Pureed beetroot salad
1 good sized beetroot or 2 small (180g)
4 tblsp chopped walnuts
small boiled potato or 30g stale white bread (i use
1 clove garlic
6 tblsp olive oil
2 tblsp red wine vinegar (i use white)
half tsp salt
Scrub beetroot and leave the ends on. Boil for 40 mins - 1 hr depending on size (You know if its cooked by sticking a knife in it, like you would a potato. See if it's soft. Leave it till you knife it otherwise all the purple will leak out. If its a big one, it'll be at least an hour. They seem quite happy to be boiled to death.). Cook potato while ur at it. Peel beetroot when cooked. Blend walnuts. Put everything in whizzer, et voila.
