Up at an ungodly hour on my day off to the cashpoint with fierce (grrr) creature accompanying me for protection. Well, she needs protecting.
Finally, the technical chappie is calling today to test the plaster for
astbestos and we may then get on with replastering the ceiling. More monies to pay out...
Once the chap has completed his business it's orf to do the monthly shop. Apparently there is a world shortage
(and wheat) because of the 'need' for biofuels. Firstly, we live in a crazy world that places the need for fuel above that of food for people who will starve and, secondly, I'll selfishly buy some extra rice in. It is worrying and perhaps the chickens are coming home to roost for the west (Isn't China west of somewhere? From Beijing California is the east)...with or without birdflu.I guess Macca's remarks about vegetarianism as the answer to global warming is part of this mix. We could eat beans, greens and lentils and contribute to communal storage of the methane and other gases produced."You can have a 5% discount off your fuel bill if you contribute 50 litres of methane per year to your local community".
Alternatively, recycled bins for tins, paper, glass, plastics and a sealed container for flatulence
. Politicians are usually good at taking the piss so perhaps that could be useful as well.
On top of that we have to prepare to man the border as fuel starved Scots roam south in their search for fuel. Mind you, if this
is genuine we have little need to worry about national borders as we are reconfigured. I guess Lincolnshire will be part of greater Holland or Germany. Where's me lederhosen? Surely something is wrong here because if we are part of a Gross Deutschland (uber alles), why are the Poles invading?
I'm off to buy a vegetarian bratwurst and sauerkraut.
Auf wiedersehen fur jetz.
