    Very nice…I keep encouraging my noxious offspring to make sure that whatever profession they adopt to make sure it is one they can practise anywhere. That way they can move to where they WANT to live rather than where they MUST to get a job.

    I wish someone had told me that. It would have saved me a great deal of trouble before I found a way to come here.

    Yes, that’s good advice. I wish my boyfriend would heed it. I have arranged things so I can earn a living anywhere with internet access, wearing my slippers if I choose, but he’s stuck here for the next few years.

    Nice house is sold now. 😦

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."
