"They" reckon that the only way to cut down on plastic is to buy less stuff.

Re: RAIN !!

Mr Odsox is hogging the rain that is forecast for here. We've not had enough to wet an ant's foot despite the forecast - I resorted to major watering on the allotments last night and only produced 6-8 spots of the forecast rain. I believe we've had one day in the recent couple of months.

Re: Phone apps

I do hate life when something that you have always used on computer/laptop/phone doesn't work when the system or hardware is updated. It's often a reason to sell you something new of course as an extra add on to whatever you have just updated.

CO2 shortage

Now there seems to be a CO2 shortage in the UK - the sort that goes into beer, fizzy pop, food preservation, animal slaughter (!), dry ice production here in the UK .. It comes to something when meat is packed using CO2 for sale in the supermarket and it makes you wonder about slaughtering processes...
