This is so true...
No one can do sea, sand, sun, and food quite like us.

UK wants to effectively make it illegal to communicatr in private, allowing the government unfettered access to all communications.

"Speaking at an event in the East Midlands, Mr Cameron said he recognised such powers were "very intrusive" but he believed that they were justified to counter the growing threat to the UK, as long as proper legal safeguards were in place."

Neither currently nor historically, does or did the USSR or China have this ability, with UK effectively abolishing the right to privacy.

Any communication that is captured, will eventually leak, and Uk does not exactly have a glowing track record of being able to keep major secrets secret, and with that in mind, never mind less important secrets.

Anything that can be used against someone, will be used aginst them, for any reason, by the authorities, or otherwise.

This is indeed a very scary development on the back of the Paris terrorist attack, with governments seizing the opportunity to use the event for their own purposes, under the mantra of security and if you dont have anything to hide....

We all hav things that we may mot need to hide, but nevertheless wants the world to know, and when a governtmrnt knows, the world does.


Please share... #uk #privacy #security #internet #freedom #law

Its not just the French....
This goes for most of the mediterranian countries, and it's true, the food DOES taste a lot more. 
It’s not the red wine, but their culture of taste and enjoyment. North American fare is so bland that we gobble more to achieve satisfaction

I think i've figured out what it is.
In order to have things all year round in the shops, you have to harvest some/most of the stuff before it goes mature, and then let it mature slowly in an artificial environment.

This makes the fruit and veg woody, hard, bitter or acidic as it is just not ready yet, but what does that matter as long as it's available just in time? 

In the mediterranian, we don't get all the food all the year round (unless at a serious price penalty), as it is harvested and delivered when ripe, and it is an absolute joy to eat.
We eat what is in season, and that gives us a more varied diet over the year.

Oranges that has a thick rich sweet taste, and that you can just squeeze the juice out of, tomatoes that explodes of taste when you bite into them, soft, juicy, full of flavors.
Lemons are very sour, but in a nice way, and doesn't rip your gut out.
Carrots that has that really really sweet center that you only really get if you grow them yourself.
Lost goes on - pick your favourite, and it's the same story again.

In the end, you eat more varied food, that really taste of the ingredients, and has all the nutrients in it, just because it was left to suck up the last bit's of sunshine while it matured before it was harvested and delivered to your plate.

It's that last bit of natural sunshine, maturing  still being in the ground, on the stock or the tree, that makes all the difference

At first, i thought it was an early April's fools, but since this is UK, I expect anything these days...
Kate Lancaster, 37, from Plymouth, said she 'fell about laughing' after getting a letter from Tesco explaining that all fruit could soon be age restricted because it can be fermented into alcohol.

Really?
Must be a serious threat choosing not to not believe in anything...
This is apparently what awaits us, unless we say NO! and stand our ground against this lunacy.
