I was was shopping in Asda, (owned by
Walmart USA) a few days ago, when I
spotted a pack of 2 Boiled Eggs for £1,
next to the salads, in my local UK branch.
I appreciate that some people like to save
time in preparing meals but surely it takes
so little time to boil and shell an egg, that
I fear that we are being encouraged to be

There are many churches in the UK named for St. Thomas More, the Roman
Catholic martyr, and yet it was hardly
Christian to be personally responsible for
burning Lutherans and Protestants at the
stake for their beliefs. They too believed
in God, just had a different approach.
How does the RC church justify More's
Sainthood when he was responsible for
these killings? Presumably Catholics
could kill anyone they wished to, as long
as it kept the Pope happy.9 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
In order to invite Good Fortune into the home, the old tradition of First Footing was often practised. A dark haired male
was sent outside at 23.55 and he would
be allowed back in as soon as the New
Year chimes had finished ringing out.
He carried a small piece of coal, a chunk
of bread and a little salt, and wished a Happy New Year to all within the home.
Thus ensuring that warmth, and food were
plentiful for the coming year.
Is this superstitious tradition still carried on? And does anything similar happen elsewhere?

Everyday I walk down the street and tell
passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel
at the moment, what I did the night before
and what I will do later, and with whom.
I offer them pictures of my family, my
pets, my front garden and me standing
in front of favourite landmarks, having
lunch, and doing what anyone and
everyone does all day.
I also listen to their conversations, give
them a "thumbs up" and tell them I like
them, and it works just like Facebook!
I already have four people following me:
two policemen, a private detective and

Here is my latest recipe.
Chop up enough Rhubarb for three servings. Place in Pyrex dish, cover with
Crumble mix, place in oven for 35-40 mins.
While it is cooking, sit in favourite chair
and read your latest book on Kindle.
Wake up two hours later to find strong
smell emanating from the Kitchen.
Enter kitchen, open oven door and wonder
what the burnt offering was? Leave it to
cool and have a Yogurt for desert instead.

I dabbled with the trombone when I was a
boy attending The Salvation Army after
much persuasion from my parents.
Nowadays, I wish I had stuck with it or
at least learned to play the piano.
Have we any quality musicians on the
SC category, or were you like me and
just dabbled?16 AnswersSenior Citizens5 years ago
