ANNNNYYYYWWAAAYYYYY... moving on to some random things that I think is pretty cool.
Firstly, Cornish pasties have been given protected status by the European Commission. Yep, its true. And I think its a reall good idea. Last year I lived with two people from Cornwall, and was educated in the difference between a home-made and a shop-bought pasty, and damn straight the home made ones are better. Pastys can still be baked elsewhere in Britain but would need to have been prepared in Cornwall.
It would see clocks move forward by an hour from GMT in the winter and a further hour in the summer, to match Central European Time, meaning lighter nights but darker mornings (AND LESS SLEEP DAMMIT!!). The opposing arguement is from Scotland. They say that for years the case in favour of DST has struggled because of Scotland. If it was introduced some of the northern-most areas would not see daylight until 10am during the winter months. Opponents argue this would increase accidents and make farmers' lives harder.
What do you guys think? I personally think it wouldn't be a good idea and agree with Scotlands arguement. But what do you guys think?
On a final note, I just want to dedicate this part of my blog to those currently suffering in Christchurch due to the devistation that hit on monday. Heres hoping that people are found and that as many people as possible are safe. My thoughts are with you all.
