Sad video – Negative tests


This sad video has haunted me the last few days.

You don’t have to be a Vegan (to be appalled by the gross abuse of these birds every year at this time. There are so many great ways to make your Christmas roast dinner delicious these days. I’ve been quite sickened by the endless advertising images of these poor dead animals on our TV screens over the last few weeks. It’s as if there were a desperation in the animal-based food industry that we might all discover that this is one tradition we really DON’T NEED to follow.

At our house we’ll be looking at a succulent plate of roast parsnips, roast potatoes, done in healthy olive oil, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and probably some extras like asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, chestnuts, leeks, and always roasted onions !!! I can’t tell you how much better it will feel at the end of Christmas Day NOT to have had that old fashioned dead bird centrepiece – unhealthily animal fatty, ugly, dry, and its production bad for the planet. And above all, for me, it will be a cruelty-free Christmas.


By the way, Dr and Mrs May got negative results in out Covid lateral flow tests today. We will check one more time tomorrow – and then consider ourselves safe to rejoin humanity – but still very carefully- on what is for us Day 12 since infection. It’s very possible to get this thing more than once. Good luck out there. Stay safe.
