When I was young, many, many, many moons ago, in fact, maybe a bit before that. Before, even, there was a moon and certainly before anybody claimed to have been there.
This was a time when everything was black and white. Only artists and people of feverish disposition saw colours.
We ate eggs and cheese and butter and bread and potatoes, all considered very good for us. We ate cabbage and carrots without a great deal of protest or need of encouragement. Fruit was only around and available in season at certain times of year. There certainly wasn’t five sorts in the shops all the year round. There was root veggies over winter, salad veggies in summer and we were used to that. In fact, very nice thank you.
To be honest, its remarkable that before five-a-day, avocado on toast, artificial sweeteners, reduced salt, reduced fat and regular anti-viral drugs, how mankind managed to survive for the last three hundred thousand years.
It is so lucky all this was discovered and introduced in the last sixty or seventy years. We have a lot to thank these pharmacists and scientists for, haven’t we?
I mean, what might have happened without them?
Three hundred thousand years of not recycling has put us in this predicament.
We now have a lot of catching up to do!
