We have a glut of eggs at the moment, that is of course what happens when you produce in season food.
I’ve heard of a few people who freeze eggs for use later in the year, so I’m going to try it.
This morning I bought two different kinds of ice cub trays and ice cub bags to see which works best.
(Note to reader: I didn’t mean to print this yet, I was just starting writing the post so as I didn’t forget that I had planned to write about it but as Mrs Green has left a comment I will leave it up with the edit that I’ve added. I will also add photo’s and a new post with how it went.)
Firstly the bad news – the internet at home isn’t working, it’s been getting slower and slower for weeks and now it have finally said NO MORE! It’s nice in a way though, no internet means no email and no ebay which frees up a surprising amount of time.
The good news - both broodies now have one chick each!
I have to start making them again, I sat down last night and tried making one for today and my mind just went blank. I know there were more than to things I wanted to get done today but when I’m at work all I can remember is all the jobs that need doing at home, and vice-versa.
The link below is a petion for some funds to be ‘issued’ for research into this, I don’t really have a great understanding of what colony collapse disorder is (maybe because there hasn’t been enough research into it) but like I said in an earlier post, a world without bees… ?
This week is Down Shifting Week, I guess I’ve already taken part as I’ve planted some veg seed this week, the website is quite interesting.
This morning I saw a really interesting story about the decline of the UK bee population and how this will effect food production. Basically we might not have any bees left in 10 years time, which will have a huge knock on effect on food grown in the UK. I can’t even begin to imagine a world where you couldn’t just grow you own tomato, it’s just far to weird and scary an idea.
I’ve looked everywhere for the news story to add a link and find out a bit more but can’t find find one, even on the breakfast website which is where I saw the story.
Another story I recieved this morning by email:
“In the 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, he tied him to a rope in an art gallery, starving him to death.
For several days, the ‘artist’ and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful ‘masterpiece’ based on the dog’s agony, until eventually he died.
But this is not all … the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the ‘installation’ was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008. ”
There were some very sad and up-setting pictures with the email too, which I’ve choosen to to post as I just don’t want to see them everytime I log on, and a link to sign a online Petition
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear mumso, happy birthday to you!
This year is the national year of reading, I didn’t know that until it turned up in a google search result for something else (can’t remember what that was now, I have a feeling it was important…) they have a website with challenges for all ages to take part in so I’ve just signed up to “put 10 minutes a day a side for reading.”
First book I’m reading (have all ready started): Our Farm by Rosie Boycott
