Recycling and Climate Change…30th March 2020…A new world?

Hello and welcome… the world is changing swiftly.. fast before our eyes like a Phoenix rising from the flames…changes are happening in front of our eyes the atmosphere is clearing..waters are running clearer …dolphins and fish are appearing on the waterways of Venice …Mother Nature is being very quick to reclaim her territory…How wonderful is that?

It makes me think that all was not lost as some suggested… that nature is ever powerful and can regenerate so much faster than maybe even the learned scientists knew…Will lessons be learnt…I do hope so…Amongst all this tragedy we have to take some positives we have to believe that the world and its inhabitants can and will change for the better respect nature more…

The future may be very different but not all bad maybe we needed this …I know mother Nature did…

This video discusses both sides of the coin…We must not get carried away and think that this is a silver lining ..Pandemics are a catastrophe to both life and economies…  But maybe just maybe some lessons will be learnt…

I like that this video discusses how we can start to go forward after this crisis…We cannot go back we cannot stop technology and advancements but we can work in different ways which then cuts our carbon footprints …So not so many business trips but a meeting nonetheless…This is a beautiful example of that and the brilliance of technology…It also made me cry…

So beautiful…

Food for thought!

Which takes me nicely onto waste…

Has all this panic buying made you rethink…Rethink how you cook and shop…How you maybe don’t need to buy so much or waste so much…it certainly has in my kitchen…

Healthwise as well...Who is now baking their own bread and making pizza bases for the first time…Learning how to preserve the life of fresh fruits and vegetables by pickling, freezing or canning??? Foraging?

I am guessing many of you…

Pandemics are both life taking and changing…I don’t like cocooning myself at home …I don’t like not being able to cuddle my grandchildren or children…I don’t want this to be my new norm…I miss my trips to the markets…I miss the camaraderie…But I also know we have to be together but apart even in the home…

My hope for the future is a cleaner world… I do want to see community and caring becoming the new norm…WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER.

Thank you for reading be well and stay safe xxx

About Carol Taylor: Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all stay safe and healthy xx

    the video was beautiful, I think the nicest one of these types I’ve seen since the world changed. Let’s hope we keep doing all the right things for our environment, even when this is over.

    Fantastic post today, Carol! Great videos—I especially like the virtual choir. I feel a lot like you. All of this isolation is especially hard for an outgoing people-person like me, but we all need to be responsible for helping save lives and shorten the impact of this virus.

      I keep checking Robbie and it seems to be a mixture according to Snopes
      What’s True
      Dolphins and swans were indeed spotted in some of Italy’s waterways after the nationwide lockdown was imposed.

      What’s False
      Dolphins and swans swimming in Italy’s waterways were not necessarily new phenomena related to reduced human activity during the COVID-19 lockdown. Be well and stay safe 🙂 x
