A little 8 mile hop.

I can’t believe how my stamina and fitness are improving. This little 8 mile ride would have killed me at one point but now I can do it on the DaHon without much concern. I’ve even got myself a new bag for it – it’s meant to go under the saddle on the seat post,Continue reading “A little 8 mile hop.”

It’s a far cry from a few years ago.

I’ve just done my health check-up. Blood pressure 113/77, SpO2 99%, Stress in the green. ECG pretty much as expected – no signs of any fibrillation.

Regardless of locationContinue reading “Hatfield – the third.”

Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”

Do I miss meat?

I thought I’d answer some of the commonest questions and statements I get when I tell someone I’m vegetarian and have been over 20 years. I don’t eat meat, meat derivatives, nor do I appreciate cross-contamination of my food with meat and meat “juices”. Gelatine is a big no no, as is Carmine (E120), andContinue reading “Do I miss meat?”
