PS interesting Nepal fact - during the insurgency of the last twenty years the Marxist rebels of Nepal were the only guerilla army known to give receipts. True. If you were stopped and 'taxed' while trekking in the mountains they would give you a receipt to show to any of their colleagues who you may run into, who would except it a proof of payment so you would not be asked to pay again. Ahh bless.

Not all vegans or vegetarians are supporters of PETA, and its immediately obvious that not all PETA supporters are even vegetarian, let alone vegan. I believe myself to be a person who wishes to see the ethical treatment of animals. I just don't happen to be using the same definition of ethical as Ingrid Newkirk and her unthinking supporters. Some people see the horror of factory farming and want never to eat meat again, I see the same horror and wish only to eat meat that lived wild and free. The way i wish to live myself, a freedom I'd extend to you too.

What is it with these people? They have the word ethical in their name and yet they behave like this. Again and again.
At last someone has given them a slap on the wrist: The Advertising Standards Agency have called a halt to their latest bout of scaremongering where they refer to a number of diseases, two of which were known to have originated from eating contaminated meat and two that did not.
"Although we understood the intention was to refer to livestock and meat production rather than just eating meat, we considered that the message was, at best, ambiguous," ...."We considered that some readers might infer from the poster, and in particular the claim "Meat kills" in conjunction with the claim "Go vegetarian", that eating meat caused swine flu. We concluded that the poster was likely to mislead and could cause undue fear and distress to some readers."

A while ago I showed you how to make a nifty lantern out of the kind of junk that modern life has covered the surface of the planet with. Well it seems I'm not the only Womble in town. I've been conversing with a recent commenter on this blog, our new pal Ranger Squirrel. He's an industrious blogger and outdoorsman who has made this cool video showing how by taking your rubbish home with you, you'll have materials at hand. Here he is using that easily harvested staple of parks, trails and beaches worldwide, the beer can.
"Underground, Overground, Wombling Free, the Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we.
Making good use of the things that we find, things that the everyday folks leave behind...."
Because modern life is, after all RUBBISH!
