...I try to control following traffic as well as I can around our daily trouble spots. Generally speaking it works ok but there are regular altercations (at least once a month I would welcome a passing policeman!) which either means I'm failing somehow, or succeeding too well :? You do seem to have...

I only recently found out that White Sugar can be filtered through bone char, to remove the colour! Even stranger, the cattle bones used for this are supposedly from cows who've died of natural causes in India, Pakistan and Nigeria. I thought it must be an internet myth but that information came fro...

Altberg will also make their boots in a leather substitue(Lorica) to order. What point am I missing? Sorry, ...

Not guilt though I find it somewhat ironic to be told by a vegetarian wearing leather shoes that "meat is murder". AFAIK, nobody has yet invented a material with all the properties of leather at an affordable price. Shoes are essential in our climate, meat is a choice. My everyday shoes a...

Bless all those who rescue animals in trouble.

Does anyone else remember that anti-litter public information film from the '70's where a little wild creature (vole?) was trapped in a milk bottle? It was horrible. :cry:

Is it possible to live without using animal products? If you can be content with not knowingly, directly using animal products. Then yes, probably. That doesn't make sense to me. If someone is unknowingly using animal products then they aren't living without animal products. They just think they are.

I've been thinking about eileithyia's post about dairy being considered vegetarian since yesterday. I've been vegetarian for many years but can't defend using dairy products. I was vegan for four years in my teens but went back to using dairy products, mostly for convenience. I am going to have to g...

I have relatives in Canada - trying to get a vegetarian option over there is a nightmare ("would Sir like extra beef with that?"). And France too now I come to think about it... North Americans love their meat don't they? I have vegetarian friends in the USA and their families are often v...

He was stupid enough to assault me quite close to his house... I've seen the car parked outside. Interestingly there are now big security gates where there weren't any before , i don't know if he's expecting revenge attacks from marauding cyclists, probably been reading about what a bunch of maniac...

The OP's topic is a sport, though, not a dog walk. Presumably they get a sniff n stop walk at other times.

It was me (again) that went OT, sorry. :oops:
