Me and the OH have separate bank accounts. The only thing we have ever bought together in 9 years was a painting and a vase (she gets the painting and I get the vase if we ever divorce...!) I've still not been able to close one joint account with my ex for 12 years and counting.....(I don't use it, she does...)
I needed the judas thing explained to me, because I haveforgotten all my religious stories. Isn't judas just misunderstood? Didn't god let everything happen to Jesus, so judas is in the clear. No?
Peter- precisely my point too (in terms of ancestors having knowledge). They have passed that knowledge down to us! I learnt mushroom/berry/herb/leave picking by my mother and grandmother. Who learnt from their mother and grandmother....etc etc. I've been eating foraged mushrooms all my life. (much less now, living in London - last time was about two years ago with one lone mushroom which I put on a pizza).
Is a handy little website for the brave, observant and more FUN people. Party poopers the lot of you.
Peter - I remember reading about that story. The point being, that it is vital to think about the habitat of the mushroom before you eat it. A mushroom that grows on soil as opposed to on wood, is the difference between life and death. A little inspection before picking goes a long way!
I'll still pick mushrooms if I find them and am absolutely certain what they are.
Don't more people die from running marathons than eating mushrooms?
