So, I was going to moan about small minded people on Facebook and "the pot calling the kettle black" attitudes that I read every day on the internet. And despite the fact that many of my neighbours have voted for the National Front in France, which makes me feel slightly uncomfortable, I should in fact be used to a degree of discomfort having lived outside my country of birth for nearly 25 years now, as an immigrant. So onward and upward we go hoping that seeing as no one is in fact interested in my vote, other than my local community and the European Parliament, for as long as I am allowed to remain a European I am going to bore you with something completely different....
Above is a photo of some of our sheep with a few hour old babies. They have just realised that Gavin is walking into the field which could mean some goodies in a bucket for them. We are up to somewhere in the region of number 90 sheep to have lambed and thus far it is going ok, I think. There is the usual gang rotating into and out of the kitchen, when they have been sufficiently revived, and there is the incessantly hungry bottle fed gang who either have no mummy A (miraculous birth), a mummy with too many babies, a mummy who doesn't care for them or no mummy B (sadly did not make it through labour) fortunately not so many of the latter.
He went on to say that anything other veganism was destroying the planet,.... no information on the destruction of the planet caused by quinoa and palm oil demand.. hmm, here is a widely read fellow??? Well all I could wonder was whether these impressionable children had been given a balanced view of diets of all kinds, I suspect not. So this is what they are providing for English childrens education, thank goodness I live in France and my children have been educated in France. And, do I feel sorry for all those parents who then had to feed those kids when they got home that night. Well I could go on and on but then you really would fall asleep. So I will stop and say that all the people I know who have lived a long and healthy life have had a completely balanced diet including all food groups, not eaten or drunk to excess and generally have maintained a steady body weight (not been overweight) and have moved a lot. I don't necessarily mean hardcore excercise I just mean been active, not sat around watching telly or on the internet all day.
See you all soon
