AVOID CHRISTMAS PUDDING BUT EAT SPROUTS TO HELP PLANET. some do believe that.

I think is was yesterday that Drew posted something and had an example of something really batty possibly with regard to elf and safety of maybe it was climate. I don’t recall exactly.  What I do recall is sending the link to this story.  Sort of like saying yeah well, if you think that’s nuts take a look at this.  I thought it might be a joke at first.  Apparently not.  Christmas pudding, once a year and even then not to everyones taste. yuk. Not mine I tell ya.

Oh yeah. The fact that much of this BS is the result of a study and report by a govt. quango say a lot. I guess they have to be seen to be doing something for the money they take off the taxpayer.

AVOID CHRISTMAS PUDDING BUT EAT SPROUTS TO HELP PLANET

For those who have never enjoyed Christmas pudding, you can now pass on the stogy dish smug in the knowledge you are helping the planet.

Christmas pudding: bad for your waistline, bad for the environment

Christmas puddings are not just bad for your waistline, they are responsible for global warming, according to a report written by a Government quango.

Consumers who want to support British farmers and care about the cutting down on the environmental damage caused by the food chain, should instead think about ice cream and biscuits made with Kentish Cobnuts for their sweet dish at the end of Christmas lunch. Or they should consider a plate of Wensleydale cheese to finish their meal off.

Natural England, funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has published a booklet called The Nature of England, designed to educate consumers about where their food comes from and how they can support the best British farming practices.

It has been backed by Prue Leith, the cookery writer,
who has suggested various recipes, which do not compromise “our desire to look after our wildlife and landscapes”.

In the foreword, she writes: “Even for those who’ve spent a lifetime working with or writing about food, it’s often hard to know which foods to buy, cook and enjoy that support our values, do least harm to the planet and are within our budgets.”

While the eggs and flour, which form the two key ingredients in Christmas puddings, usually come from Britain, the spices, sultanas, raisins and candied peel and brown sugar will all be imported.

Most Christmas pudding recipes, such as Delia Smith’s “traditional Christmas pudding” also include rum from the Caribbean or stout from Ireland, the zest of lemons and oranges – all of which will be grown or produced abroad and shipped to Britain.

A homemade vanilla ice cream, however, served with hazelnut sables will not only help cut down on the food miles, but also help nourish the British countryside, the booklet recommends.

The report suggests consumers hunt down Kentish cobnuts, a form of home-grown hazelnut. “It’s important to cherish and support food that has a positive relationship with the natural environment – Kentish Cobnuts are a great example to look out for. Occasionally, the endangered hazel dormouse is spotted foraging in cobnut platts.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
