I'm a pescatarian like DJ's granddad. For one, I consider it an extremely healthy option, and science is with me on that (especially the science of looking in the mirror). Secondly, nobody is a vegetarian or pescatarian anymore - people are either vegan or omnivores. So I'm enjoying the retro 70s vibe of my chosen lifestyle ;)

I believe in all things in... uh... moderation. And that there is no such thing as a free lunch. And despite the pun I'm serious here - nothing comes without a cost, usually an unforeseen one.

It looks like these scooters have modern tech , for instance, it looks like they have the benefit of disc brakes but where are the indicators? The only thing l missed whilst riding a classic Lambretta were the indicators, sticking your arm out on today's roads where all the other drivers are going hell for leather , is a pain. .
Maybe they fhit them as a retro fit ?

The mysterious gentleman is right about moderation , for instance , certain fish like tuna still have a high mercury content..
My brother in law is a consultant and has told me that one of the big problems with modern food is the amount of preservatives that go into it , or are sprayed on it.
I recall when a loaf lasted 1 day , nowadays they dont go off until about days 4, maybe longer . If l take a lettuce from my garden and put it in the fridge , it goes floppy after a day but the one from the supermarket will remain crisp for around 4 days again.
He also told me that in countries where they dont eat sucrose, the incidence of cancer is very , very small. .
Fresh organic food anyone. .🤔

Actually, in order to eat fish one has to maintain fish stocks. Just saying.
Microfiber for footwear probably makes up 0.00000000000000000000000000000000001% of the pollution. The majority of the plastic polluting the oceans actually comes from netting and line left by the fishing boats.

Yes, moderation might be the key. In fact, I was originally inspired to go without meat by our comrade general secretary Edward Gierek, who - as my parents told me - went on TV to tell the Poles that they have a "poor nutritional structure", because they "eat too much meat". Helpfully, there was no meat in the shops during that period, so following the general secretary's advice was easier then than it is today.

But I try: in fact, I have a picture of cde Gierek hanging in my kitchen. I look at it for inspiration in moments when I crave for meat and threaten to relapse.

Having said that, it's actually quite easy for me to go without meat altogether, just as long as I've got fish - and probably healthier too.

Fish is meat. They aren't plants

The rear turn signals/indicators are diguised as the panel-release handle

I asked for a organic vegan sandwich in my local , the landlord looked at me and said” my wife will fetch you a packet of vegan crisps she’s in charge of the catering

Growing up in this country, back in the day , there was no way we were eating as much meat as is consumed by the general population now . I reckon in the 8ts meat got cheaper , in particular, chicken.
I don't eat meat but l do eat fish occasionally and eggs quite often but avoid sucrose.
I know my metabolic rate has slowed down so , in turn l eat less than I used to. I need those suits to still fit me. .😇

When I was growing up in the sixties beef , chicken and ham were expensive lamb was dirt cheap , indeed chicken was a luxury , and I’ve got to say there is nothing worse and boring than someone trying to convert people , be it politics ,religion ,and now food of all things .
