Do manufacturers of men's clothing have vested interests?
I'm a conservationist, in my jobs over the years I've probably planted over 10,000 trees and I have only flown on a plane twice in the past in 10 years (and that was only to Brussels and Jersey- so not exactly long haul!) so my carbon footprint is pretty low,
but I also rarely eat meat (maybe twice a week max) and only eat meat that is produced locally if I can get it, recently got 15kg of prime beef all butchered down to steaks, joints etc. from a farmer I know for £100 and half a lamb for £45 and that'll keep me going till summer next year. I don't eat chicken at all as they are one of the most energy hungry meats you can get.
I am a sucker for cheese, but the local stuff tastes far better than any continental stuff anyway, plus I usually go to the Wensleydale creamery twice a year due to me passing nearby! and most cheeses freeze pretty well!
Thank you all for your greetings...pansyface..thankfully my crocuses are in a container..just seen some daffs and some other bulbs coming through which i dont know what they are yet..we've only just moved in to this bungalow 2 months ago so am waiting to see what comes through.
Something about Terry Scott's curly wurlies put me off them for life.
I grew up in the land of tripe and elder - cows's stomachs stewed up with cows' udders. And a special treat was chitterlings - pigs' small intestines fried up. Or how about beast (cow) heart?
I don't try to make anyone a vegetarian. But when you consider that animals are increasingly not being grass-fed but are eating grain, would it not be more logical to miss out the middleman (the animal) and just feed the grain to us?
