fine dining?  don’t think so. near death experience for young girl and death cap mushrooms.

How old does this girl look to you?

In the paper, she looked a bit older then on line pix.  Anyway ...  I wonder if people are now gonna say that it’s a bit of a miracle because the Pope is visiting the UK.  One of these things can kill and she downs two.  And lives to tell. 

Sometimes friendly folks, like to bring things from their veggie patch. Like one of our neighbors.  Brought over this huge cabbage last week.  He probably grows too much and doesn’t want to waste.  Yeah. I’m that cynical. Anyway, I politely refused the offer.  First, I don’t want to encourage any further acts of garden generosity.  Second, it has to come from a proper super market like Tesco, wrapped in plastic.  That’s how food comes. It doesn’t grow on trees and especially doesn’t come from the ground.  Can’t fool me.  Places like Tesco and Sainsbury and Iceland have this magic place where all this nice stuff comes from, already safely wrapped.  And they kindly hold the stuff for all the ppl that require the sustenance thus wrapped, untill we come by to pick it all up.  Ain’t that nice of em?  Would your MIL do that for you? And for a small but worth it fee, they will even deliver it right to your door.  Heck, they didn’t even have that service in Palm Desert, CA.  Where was I?  Oh yeah.

The young lady is damn lucky to be alive.  Really she is. 

Honey, next time you want a snack, go to Tesco. Waitrose isn’t bad either.

Girl wolfs down TWO death cap mushrooms and survives to tell the tale

By Andrew Levy

A 12-year-old girl has survived after accidentally eating two mushrooms which were poisonous enough to kill an adult twice over.

Lucy Adcock fought for her life in hospital after she ate two death caps while on a bike ride, having mistaken them for ordinary field mushrooms.

The schoolgirl, who suffered liver failure, yesterday told how she felt ‘lucky’ to be alive. Doctors were astonished that she not only pulled through but may have escaped without any lasting problems.

One death cap mushroom is normally enough to kill an adult. Those who survive often need liver or kidney transplants.

Of her ordeal Lucy said: ‘I realise I am lucky because they are so poisonous. I was really ill. It was horrible.’

Her mother, Tania Smith, 42, said: ‘It is hideous to be told by doctors that your daughter may not make it. When I realised what she had eaten, my heart sank.

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

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.
