Speaking for myself..I wouldn't, no matter how much they reduced it.
It's like eggs. Eggs from battery hens are so much cheaper.
I wouldn't buy them under any circumstances, I see people reaching for them at the store and feel like telling them ' you are condoning cruelty buying those eggs'...a quick glance in their trolley shows they are not hard up, bottles of booze galore,
but no qualms on buying something that a creature leads a life of hell to produce. The stores are at fault stocking such of course.
Incidentally Franko, I believe the horse meat under investigation was not fit for human consumption.
You have a big heart El. I do love the eggs in England. Big orange double yokes

I wish I could say I don't dislike anybody myself...regrettably I formed a dislike of a new neighbour who threatened to chase my little black cat out of her garden in spite of my just telling her that when I rescued him he had a broken femur which the Vet considered had been done by force, and was healing having been unattended to.
It wasn't as though her garden was anything to write home about, it was a disgrace! Lack of compassion does it for me, don't wanna know!
Perfectly understand and I do believe in karma. I've seen it or at least that's what I attributed it to -- the universe meting out its own sense of justice.

I did not mean to suggest that I like or get along with everyone. Who does or can? There are few if any I dislike and those I am indifferent towards. Then there are the people I like and enjoy being around. Like the folks in the kitchen....

Hey Tony?! Is that UK newspaper going to sue Lance Armstrong to get the money back since he perjured himself?

The paper was slandered!!!

Good afternoon and evening to all! Boomer just said that London is under a blanket of snow and cancelling flights. Guess it's time for warm tea or hot chocolate! Won the match for pool yesterday. Had to play a new player yesterday for the table and he sank the 8 ball at the end when he was losing terribly, maybe to save face being beat by a lady? LOL Lots of fun. No single digits here in Ohio, yet we did wake to a light flurry of snow. Hoping everyone is well in the kitchen as always.
Peace to all.

He asks 'Do you sell fish cakes here?'

'No' was the reply.

WELCOME BACK Tony,
so glad you had a great and enjoyable holiday..
Not so lucky for these people,
have you heard of this..
http://www.u.tv/News/Co-Antrim-doctor-dies-in...
so tragic,
showing once again there is an element of danger
in every sport..
but for the vast majority it is
great fun....
I saw thar - have climbed in Glencoe, but in summer. The mountains can be dangerous, even for the most experienced. It is especially sad when one so young dies at the start of what one imagines would have been a very productive life. Lost an acquaintance years ago (she was also a young doctor), killed at Cowes when the boom of her yacht gybed and hit her.

Morning Tony! Hope you've enjoyed your recent travels. Did you get to meet any skiers?
A potato is still a potato no matter how you eat it.

Good day to you!
Hi Quinnie - met lots of skiers (intentionally rather than colliding!), had a convivial time, ate too much and drank too much, but lost a little weight from the exercise. The snow conditions were really good, which was a plus.

Only one fall - but that had to be right in front of she-who-must-be-obeyed! She laughed her socks off, but did then admit it's the first time in 12 years of skiing together that she's seen me fall - no doubt it made her day as I'm usually far enough ahead when I have a spill that I'm back on my feet before she arrives on the scene! Women's Downhill was awesome - I couldn't ski at 90 mph as they do - and an American lass won, Alice McKennis.

The UK has copped a fairly heavy fall, schools closed etc. Needless to say, we've had none in Cornwall.

you are right there Tony,
it is indeed especially sad when one dies young;
my own grandson is a couple of years younger than
the lovely girl who died,
I cannot even begin to imagine something like that.

Anyway, really delighted you had such a wonderful time
and a complete 'cut off' from the norm,
which is beneficial for mind and body.

It so happened there's an OFFBEAT thread
called "WHEN I WAS A KID" ..........
recalling childhood memories..

Coincidentally,
I had written these thoughts from childhood,
some while back.. so, I gave it an airing there..

thought I might as well add it here too,
I came as close in the writing of it as
I viewed life 'at the time'
and older now, I think the age of INNOCENCE must be one of the most Godly qualities .. we know.

I asked on Offbeat, at the time for a name for the poem..
among many suggestions someone suggested I call it 'WONDER'

****

- WONDER -

"When I was a little child imagination running wild,
When all my dreams ran wild and free
the world was a different place to me.

Even in the baby school, I could never obey the simple rule
of>

sitting down and being quiet,
with an eager heart and mind so bright and full of
..
so many new things I could see..

I thought the flowers were little friends
who tickled my nose with their funny scents
Woven in a wreath upon my hair ,
their colors matched the ribbons I'd wear..

When Mama lay me down to sleep
I watched the shadows slowly creep up close
around my bed
And .. YOU WOULDN'T BDELIEVE .. the things they said
like>

I was a fairy queen
who ruled alone in the land of dreams
And .. at birthday time when I waved my wand

A bright star fell in a land beyond
and turned into an apple tree
with silver apples JUST for *me*.

Through the window across the sky
I was SURE I knew the reason why

the moon and stars were playing about
I thought I had it figured out -

that the moon was really a friendly old Dad..
And the stars were
> little children he had

who danced and twirled in the Heavens all night
and slept in the clouds 'til morning light.

And when the sun came out to play
I viewed her, too... in another way>

like some glittering crown a lady would wear
it's rays.. like strands of golden hair.

When Christmas time came by each year..

I SWEAR I felt a presence -
whether Santa Claus or an angel above?-

I only know,
I felt the love of a blessed spirit..
holding me tight and kissing my cheek
all through the night-

s saying I was a sweet princess
who always wore the prettiest dress

Well,
it could have been the JESUS child ...
[I often thought] by the way He smiled.

I had a wonderful Mum and Dad..
The best you'd ever meet..
they loved me well and bought me treats
like ...... coloured papered toffee sweets.

Way back then when I was a child,
For a time, I had an Angel's mind

AND
I saw the world in a wondrous way..

Another time..

Another Day.."

Good Afternoon Brighteyes...I believe we post simultaeneously
earlier..
You are so right, 10% of flights were cancelled earlier at Heathrow, London, hundreds of schools closed, yet the general feel is that we are coping magnificently. lol
Hot chocolate is definately order of the day.
Speaking of pool, we had what I thought was a pool table in the front room when I was a child growing up, but P informs me it must have been a billiard table, as, according to P, we didn't play pool here until
the 50's. Whatever we had was great fun to play!
Thought I would mention, a strange cat has turned up in our garden,
I suspect he is sleeping under the chalet and emerges around dusk
which is about half past four...heads for the remains of any food which the birds may have left. He is quite big, tabby, and for all the world resmebles a Scottish Wild Cat.
I took him a dish of food out and left it where I had cleared snow for the birds..no sooner had I returned indoors than he appeared, and wolfed the food. There is a warm bed for him in a sheltered place, so I will keep feeding him this severe weather, hope to gain his confidence.
Absolutely fine here t/y and hope the same for yourselves.
