Fair Trade Friday

you know, I thought this was such a good idea at first, but I don't do politics (here) because I don't like arguments (here) (well, anywhere really, but I suppose I feel that I can choose not to have them here) (and, look, see, I'm off the plot already and I only wanted to offer you something nice to eat). . . and, yes, I saw the Panorama programme about chocolate and, no, I don't suppose that that's the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth and it's probably not even a cube off the tip of the iceberg (doing it again) and, yes, again, there should be some arguments that are worth having - I totally agree

erm, hot cross bun anyone?
hot cross buns are marked with a cross
and were eaten by the Saxons to honour their goddess Eostre -
it is thought the bun represented the moon and the cross the moon's quarters;
to Christians, the cross symbolizes the crucifixion
(and you're right, I don't do religion here either, but the above is an historical reference)

I posted a comment here a while ago. Someone's stolen it! Was it the Friday Fairies, do you think?

Well, I used to honour Eostre, but since she abandoned me...let's say I'm a very hot, very cross bunny!
Can I still have an espresso, with a square of chilli chocolate on the side, please? Ta, ducks.

Ooh! Coffee?
I didn't see the programme but I still sort of hope Fair Trade helps a little bit. Probably not as much as it ought.

Dave said...
