Eating vegetarian and vegan at Pizza Hut in Gib …

Some Saturday thoughts on blogging

Another gem from WordPress. If you write a long post, you need to tag it as a long post. Not with the obvious word ‘long’ of course. You now have to tag your post using WPLongform. What is a long … Continue reading

Crufts – nice doggies and all that

Primp. Preen. Parade. People and Pups (so cute to call dogs pups) run around the ring indistinguishably, hair and fur floating elegantly in the breeze. Unless they are a Mexican Hairless, or a Hairless Chihuahua, of course. Pose and gait … Continue reading

You are what you eat

A short and pithy post. Honestly! Would you believe that from me? Horse meat in lasagna. I confess, I couldn’t resist writing about it. I see four issues here: 1) Hypocrisy. OK to eat cows, pigs, sheep, but not horses … Continue reading

Catering for all tastes

Quorn

Fake meat? Processed food? Junk food? High protein meat-free ready meal? Fresh from the laboratory? All of those, and more. Or as the website says, a wonder food. Well, not quite, in my opinion. What is Quorn? It’s made from … Continue reading

Consumerism (7) – it doesn’t matter to me

The much-heralded post and the final one in the series. Perhaps the most important one too. Oh. Why? Because it is the one where you can make a difference. I was going to insert a terribly clever digression here to … Continue reading

Seal of approval

Some years ago my mother decided to buy a beautiful pair of sealskin (?) fur boots. They were amazingly warm. I know, I wore them a few times. She bought them from Bridlington in Yorkshire, UK, where not many seals … Continue reading
