Do come to dinner :)

It’s always interesting when men write about becoming vegetarian/vegan, because it is really a soft soppy girly thing to do. Real men eat meat not quiche. At one point I was following a blog by a man who was going … Continue reading

The right to free speech or the right to freely offend and insult?

A blog is a minestrone, served up with Parmesan cheese

I should, of course, have called this Ten Top Tips for Blogging, or Ten Golden Blogging Rules. Except there aren’t any. One person’s view of the correct way to blog isn’t another’s. But as I have read a plethora of … Continue reading

You are what you eat – GMO

Genetic engineering. It’s a bit like nuclear power, pesticides, feeding cows on sheeps brains. You either think it’s a great idea, don’t care either way because it doesn’t affect you, or you think it is an extremely bad idea. The … Continue reading

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

Entertaining

In terms of being the perfect hostess you can put me right at the bottom of the list. Not the bottom of ten or a hundred, but at least a thousand, or ten thousand. I hate the staged spectacle of … Continue reading

Men who can cook

And those who can – and don’t. Or to put it another way: Men who can cook, do. Men who can cook, don’t. As for men who can’t cook, they don’t either. Fortunately. With apologies to George Bernard Shaw (Man … Continue reading

Irrelevant rants

Gah!! What is it with people who are not vegetarian and think they know everything about it because they only eat chicken or fish a few days a week? I’ve been doing this for 25 years or something like that. … Continue reading

I need protein – just can’t get enough.

No, no – not more protein – yet again? I thought high protein low carb diets went out – well, 30 years ago. That’s the last time I heard of anyone following one. A friend at university aged, 19/20, decided … Continue reading
