GREAT FOOD.  PLENTY OF PARKING TOO.

INTERESTING ARTICLE--TOFU ETC. NOT EXACTLY GOOD FOR THE PLANET AND THAT CARBON FOOTPRINT

So it turns out almond milk is actually really damaging the planet. It’s putting tonnes of pressure on bees causing them to die and 130 pints of water are needed to produce just one glass of wholesome almond milk.

And now you thought ok well I’ll change to oat milk and I’m still being really good to the planet because I eat tofu instead of chicken. Well turns out tofu is pretty bad too.

A new study by Dr. Graham McAuliffe has revealed tofu could be more harmful to the planet than chicken, beef and pork. Speaking at the National Farmers Union Dr. Graham McAuliffe of the Rothamsted Institute said after researching tofu, he’d concluded it potentially causes more environmental damage because of the production to make the processed protein source. He said: “But if you look at tofu, which is processed so there is more energy going into its production, when you correct for the fact that the protein in it is not as digestible compared to the meat-based products, you can see that it could actually have a higher global warming potential than any of the mono gastric animals.

As always, some oldies but goodies, special requests, new finds and more. Click on the photos and links.

First up--just love the illustration in this 1945 wartime ad for Maxwell House coffee.  It's followed by a fabulous vintage toy---indeed, we think that the Japanese made some of the most fanciful battery operated toys--like this pink “Jumbo the Bubble Blowing Elephant” #10117,  circa 1950s, manufactured by Yonezawa, Japan.And finally, our of favorite vintage made in Japan cardboard music boxes; it plays Silent Night; the deer is celluloid; this piece is probably from the mid-1950's to very early 60's. And finally, a  new TEN CENT CITY flagstone printie putz house--now completed--by Howard Lamey; see it from start to finish here. Again, click on the photos and links.


An oldie but goodie from TOYS AND STUFF: 1948 Kellogg's #1006 The Colonial Cottage - The stuff that dreams are made of. It was 1948 and The War had been over for 3 years but there were still G.I.'s over there in support and security roles. Sooner or later they had to come back home....READ MORE HERE
