It’s Friday night and I’m alone at the computer…

Today has been very frustrating. The audio I was transcribing seemed to have been recorded in a tin box and everyone at the conference appeared to be facing away from the microphone and suffering from a horrible cough. Couldn’t hear a damn thing. Grr. Having a glass of chardonnay now while researching brassicas and would like to do some more work this evening (the bf is out at a work Christmas do – one of about 400 parties! – thank god I’m self-employed, I’m such a sociopath, the idea of these things fills me with fear) but fear I’ll end up drinking in front of the internet and going to bed and falling asleep to ‘The World Tonight’ again…..

I’ve been going to bed so early lately. I’m sure it’s because it’s getting dark early.

Following on from the waste audit, this week we have a paltry amount of plastic packaging and a few bits of leftover turnip in the bin. About a sixth of a black binliner!!

I love my composter.

And, compostwoman, you will be pleased to hear all cotton wool pads are now going into it!

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
