Re: I am not a vegan

There was a documentary on woods last year based on research on an old area of ancient woodland in the UK. IIRC diseases that reach the wood and pass through it got defeated before it reached the other side. What was happening was communication through from one end of the wood to the other. The tree...

Re: I am not a vegan

One small piece of red meat can give your body the iron intake from something like 10 large portions of spinach. The iron in meat is easily absorbed but iron from spinach I believe doesn't always get into your system efficiently hence the need for more to be eaten. Spinach isn't the best vegan sour...

Re: Duke In Rollover

Don't you have to reapply for tie licence every 5 years from 70 years of age? The form gets you to confirm you're fit to drive. So the checking is in place. I say that system should apply to everyone. Actually I thought there was something in law about every driver being responsible to hand in their...

Re: Country mouse goes to the big city

300m of aerated stream and the water should be ok to drink even with the dead sheep. Stop being so squeamish! :wink: Seriously water makes you ill but rarely kills you before you get medical help in this country (Weil's desease/leptospirosis apart). I'd be more worried about exposure in winter or so...

Re: I am not a vegan

One night I flicked through the TV channels before going to bed. The trouble was I found a programme made by iirc BBC about the essential amino acids we have to get from food because our bodies can't produce them internally. It was by I believe that former gp with the Dutch sounding name I think van...

Re: Plea to roadies....

If you can't whinge about bad behaviour on our highways on the forum of a cycle campaign and cycling special interest forum then where can we whinge? Seriously, if you can't highlight bad road manners by cyclists on a cycle forum then where? As a cyclist I doubt I'd be welcome on a motoring forum. B...

Re: Country mouse goes to the big city

I guess that's like if you suddenly dumped a townie in the Lakeland hills they'd feel just as lost in their Nike kit and street puffer jackets with apple wireless ear buds in their ears or massive headphones over them. I often think if you see someone dressed like that in the lakes, you've seen a l...

Re: I am not a vegan

There's a good item common in Mexico and nearby nations that's good for the harder to obtain essential amino acids. It's basically a maize / corn crop that's been exposed to a particular fungal species. In the west and most of the world such an infection would have farmers burning the fields and not...

Re: How did you vote in 2016? How would you vote now?

Interesting front page in the National. Oh, wait! A Scottish magazine called the national? I'm very surprised that they are publishing pieces about independence for Scotland. Not like it is their main brief in guessing. :wink: OK I'll give this point a chance. Can anyone post a link to a new page in...

Re: Arnside to Grange-over Sands

I read something online last year about movement on the cycle / pedestrian access to the viaduct. Can't remember the source but i think it was a local newspaper / online site. Something about a new feasibly study.

Re: I am not a vegan

There was a news report on veganism I think end of last year where an expert in nutrition and health (a science advisor for civil service based in academia or NHS iirc). He was talking about a statistically significant issue related to the significant rise in veganism. This issue related to people s...

Re: Your vote on Mrs May's Deal ( just for today)

I read a wto representative said to an Irish newspaper that there is nothing in the rules that would require a hard border between the Republic and Northern Ireland. Just to clarify that I hope.

Re: Country mouse goes to the big city

St.Davids in the summer can be a bit intimidating, having to walk in the middle of the road due to all the crowds. We went there on Christmas Eve and the place was like a ghost town. Most shops and cafes closed, just a few people in the supermarket buying last minute provisions. Still glad to get h...

Re: Theresa May Should go Now. Resign!

And yet he's been forced out amid allegations of abuse I believe. He's had to bring his leaving day forward too. It's a matter of record that he's not been an honest man but then he doesn't have to be as the speaker. It's potentially a position of great power even in our political system. Judge and...
