  1. At our Aldi you have to move at the speed of light to keep up with the cashier! If you have bought lots they like you to just refill your trolley then move off somewhere else to pack it in to bags. I do my big weekly shop online and get it delivered, much easier (not from Aldi though, they dont do online shopping (yet))
  2. We don't have Walmart in the UK, but we have a supermarket called Asda which is owned by Walmart. They are one of the cheaper supermarkets, but Aldi is cheaper. i wonder if Aldi sells the same things everywhere in the world...I have certain things I like to go there for. They do the best nappies, happily my kids are done with them now though . Their fig rolls are also officially the best available. (Well in the informed opinion of our household anyway).
  3. Fossil found in India

    Slightly off topic but this is the ichthyosaur vertebrae my husband found on the beach at Lyme Regis in Dorset this year https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxuRsnWWxriDVDhTdXJqajcxU28/view?usp=drivesdk And ive just noticed hes made a spelling mistake in his label hes already making a new one...
  4. We had a speaker from New Jersey last week (im in the UK) as he was over visiting family. Hearing a different accent like that seemed to make everyone instantly pay better attention! It helped that he spoke very clearly and was a very good speaker
  5. I really hope it was vacant when this happened!
  6. The award for the best baddie voice has to go to the King of Assyria in last years Hezekiah drama "AM I A MUUULE THAT CAN BE BOUGHT FOR MONEEEEEY?" I would love to hear him speak in a normal setting
  7. Coincidentally this article http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/item/4f6b6e5d-af94-46c4-9a11-f50aae22136e popped up in my facebook newsfeed today. The reporter tried to give up plastics for 2 weeks and found it impossible.
  8. I am confident he would prefer it (rev 11:18) "... and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.” No definitely not. The problems are too complex for man to solve. I often feel a sense of helplessness as i dutifully put out my recycling for collection, feeling like it makes no difference in the scheme of things. Fortunately, as i know the Truth, those feelings dont cause me to despair as i know Jehovah will have the perfect solution. You're right plastic waste isnt a priority right now. But it would be nice to think if we could all make some small changes i wouldnt have to worry about how much plastic was in the next bit of seafood i ate.
  9. Someone did tell me that they were building a film studio in the new Britain branch office, so who knows! (Disclaimer: they may have been wrong about the film studio, so dont quote me on that )
  10. They give away cutlery with it? Not seen that before. Thats the kind of wastage they are trying to cut down on in the UK. So in pubs they will give you a straw if you request one rather than automatically provididng it. One big pub chain has switched to paper straws. Its madness to just hand out plastic cutlery when most people dont need it.
  11. Wine and stuff like that

    Yes, looks like they dont recycle that bit. I did just find a website detailing lots of alternative re-uses for it though...including an inflatable camping pillow and another one joined loads up to make a big raft. Its making me think i should have a box of wine in my Go Bag. Purely for survival reasons of course...
  12. Wine and stuff like that

    Arent they all just cardboard with a plastic bladder in?
  13. I use environmentally friendly dishwasher detergent
  14. Wine and stuff like that

    We have a winery 10 minutes down the road from us. In the UK! The white wines are surprisingly good, the reds not so much. We just dont get enough sun to make a decent red. Their red tasted thin (if that makes sense) and more like a white. An afternoon at their open day was enternaining though. Have you seen Midsomer Murders? I felt like i was in an episode of that.
  15. Wine and stuff like that

    I read recently that boxed wine is becoming more popular, and is even being used in Michelin starred restaurants. Its for environmental reasons (lots of energy needed to make a glass bottle) but may mean more good wines available in a box!
