Even if they're deep fried Blech! :pukeright: I am that Scottish and I wouldn't eat that! *shudders* I honestly think that this has got nothing to do with longevity of product, as Masterfoods claim, and has everything to do with making the big buck. Here is a link to the story on BBC news... http:/...

I'm a veggie, so honest answer is no, I have never eaten road kill. My OH saw a deer get hit a while back. He went back an hour later and it was still there so in the trailer it went. I refused point blank to even be anywhere near him while he was gutting and skinning the poor animal :cry: but I had...

See, that's kind of what I was thinking. I was just trying to get ideas on the best way to go. I like the thought of setting up some kind of community composting project though. Whether that be educating people about how to make a compost heap, what can and can't go on it...yadda, yadda, yadda. :lol:

Community compost heaps?

I've been mulling over the idea of trying to set up a community compost heap. Where I live, there are enough peole who would like to use it. I just wonder about the practicality of it and if it would actually work. Has anyone else done this and if so, did it work? :flower:

This is a major bug bear of mine! Despite the local council paying lip service to the idea of recycling, for some reason they are not interested in tetra pak. Yet what is half of everyone's bin filled up with? :mumum: The nearest tetra pak hub to me is in Fife (I think). It would be real easy to set...
