Recycling and Climate Change…23rd March 2020…Mother Nature wins…

Hello and welcome… the world is changing swiftly.. fast before our eyes and not all for the good but as the Phoenix whose rose 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 is said Venice is cleaner than it has been for 60 years in just a few weeks…

According to local newspaper La Nuova di Venezia e Mestre, the decline in people, tourists especially, has brought “back the lagoon waters of ancient times, those of the post-war period, when it was even still possible to bathe in the waters of the canals”.

I do hope that when the dust has settled that lessons will be learnt and that the fish and dolphins will stay and that people will respect that and the tours will not come back in the same numbers…

Thank you Tori for sending all your findings to me on the environment you are a star..Tori is an avid supporter of helping the environment xx

I have been to Venice and seen the dirty waters and it is such a delight to see how quickly they have returned to a more natural state… it makes me have hope among all this doom and gloom and tragedy which is unfolding worldwide before our eyes…Mother nature will win…

I have been watching an old film on U-Tube this week…Called “Life after People” …

It shows that we cannot win if we carry on as we are and that Nature will always win…we need to suck that up and listen…

Whatever man does and they are sure trying their hardest and this organisation certainly defines all credibility and fully deserve a permanent spot in my …

Naughty Corner…

Florida Retail Federation or the State of Florida that still has preemption laws on the books which prohibit environmentally conscious cities from banning styrofoam, plastic bags, and plastic straws?

They have put their Civic responsibilities below their mercantile interests…Shame on them…

Thank you, Dolly, for alerting us…The Florida Retail Federation is definitely firmly in this naughty corner shame on them…

A shorter post today as I think everyone has more urgent things on their minds…I hope you all stay safe and abide by the rules of social distancing and continue to think of your neighbours in these uncertain times…Stockpiling and greed have no place in our world…

Stay safe and healthy people and as hard as it is only post facts on social media…and post the good news as well as we all need to hear that…

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

Thank you for reading 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
