  1. It makes me sad when I see obviously very poor people being robbed. The latest example is supermarket food. 'Cheap' pasties displayed as price cut, bargain and so on - but the last time they were reduced, i bought one ... Not to eat, but to take apart and determine the facts. Most UK supermarkets aim at around 55 pence for such items, provided you buy a pack of four. There is an almost invisible amount of cheap beef mince (~ £3 for 1000 grams!), potato, onion, cheap fat and swede - maybe 20 - 50 grams each; plenty of water and white plain flour (approx 50 pence for 1 kg - even cheaper wholesale). For the cost of 4 - £2.20 - we could make a casserole dish full of something similar but much, much better - 10 minutes with a microwave. Much of the appeal of these shop pasties is the aroma: pepper, onion and fatty pastry slightly overcooked ... What is the lesson? Before you buy anything, examine the facts. You / we can nearly always do better ourselves, and the advertising industry is determined to mislead us.

  2. We're fortunate to have an Aldi supermarket. I think Aldi is a German owned company but I may be mistaken. They sell quality produce and healthy foods for a decent price. It's not a 'fancy' supermarket like the other two in the area. You bag your own groceries and return your cart to the cart corral. Many people won't shop there because because it's where poor people shop. It's their loss. They're foolish to pay twice as much for the same product at a store that features all the bells ans whistles. Aldi recently announced that they are working toward selling all products in packaging that can be recycled. We recycle. It costs $8 per month and well worth it.

  3. Aldi (and Lidl) are both German and popular in Little England.

    Well done with the recycling - what exactly do you pay for? Collections from your house? Most of that is free in Little England. It's great to have your comments on life in the USA.

  4. The recycling company provides us with a large
    lidded plastic tote on wheels. They come every other week to empty it. The $8 charge is to help cover their fuel costs and pay their employees. They are located quite a distance from where we live. A certain number of people in my town had to sign up for the service before it was feasible for them to come here.

  5. Good for you. And your community. The basic recycling is free in Little England, but hefty charges for taking consumer goods and even mildly toxic building materials (plaster board!). Apparently many bits buy many times as many clothes as they need, and throws nearly all away. There are now schemes to have swap shops for perfectly good clothes.

  8. Cornwall has had a rare spell of freezing, dry ,SUNNY weather. Most of the country has suffered for weeks, but Cornwall stayed very mild. This cold spell feels healthy - high humidity through December and January spreads the dreaded viruses ...
