I have a biography site (which will give you an idea of my personal
context) at www.george-mcnamara.com,
and this has links to all my other writings on the internet.
I have a weblog
there, and you are welcome to make responses to my discourse
toolbox site there
I will add a few points here:-
- my diet is "wholefood" vegetarian. It excludes meat,
but includes fish and some dairy products. I feel I have chosen
this diet because of information which is freely available to
everyone, and I have no wish to interfere in anyone else's responsibility
to choose a diet that they are happy with.
- By "wholefood" I mean that I bake 80% wholemeal bread
and eat brown rice (but not wholemeal pasta). However, I avoid
all industrial foods such as TVP or other soya proteins because
they are industrial products. It is more true to say that I try
to have food with good "life energy", and TVP cannot
have any life energy, it seems to me.
- I have an allotment and grow much of my own food. My own food
is organically grown, but I buy all sorts of vegetables and food,
not necessarily organic.
- I would call myself "dark green" - I am strongly committed
to recycling and to improving the environment, and I think that
we face major problems of resource shortages
- I am the part-time administrator of PartnerCHIP, a non-profit
business which hires out shredders and provides composting demonstrations
with the twin aims of waste reduction and sustainable gardening.
