Blah, have been hugely busy lately, such that when I’m working I can’t slyly write a post or two and when I’m not working the last thing I want to do is sit down at a computer and put words in the right order.

But I have asparagus for supper. Mmm. And M&S organic chocolate buttons (I discovered them last week and have eaten about 4 packs of them since then) for afters.

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."
