It might seem unusual to have a rock/pop band for an 80th Birthday, but the birthday boy has followed us for a number of years now so it seemed apt. The hotel it was held at was a great place. Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”
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”.

I’d love to get the message across to people that calling something a veggie burger and then cooking it on the same griddle as a meat burger isn’t actually correct! These days I always ask “how do you cook it?”.
As a vegetarian of over 20 years I can tell you that I am not the only vegetarian who gets struck down with fear and terror at the very word “buffet”. That cavalcade of cross contamination. Where a vegetarian is pretty much guaranteed to only be able to eat salad, and perhaps the crisps orContinue reading “A great wedding but a vegetarian nightmare.”
