There are certainly advantages to cd's and all the rest...but entire ways of being with other people and experiencing art and music have vanished. In the states background music at the bars is often so loud that it discourages conversation.Andrew Fryer wrote: ↑Fri Jun 02, 2017 5:11 pmThe other week down the pub I wondered what it would be like to have no tv, no CDs, no record players, no cinema and to be forced to go to the theatre for music and drama (or make your own). Obviously we'd have to have 19th century theatre admission fees, not modern ones.
True, but more and more Americans (nearly 40% of households I believe) are growing their own food or participating in community gardens. You can't get much fresher than that and it's obviously easier to do if you're not confined to a flat in the city center.Peskyendeavour wrote: ↑Fri Jun 02, 2017 5:36 pm....
Eating fresh food before it needs refrigeration is also best, it however requires more often shopping excursions but enhance local supply/ shopping and reducing carbon footprint. (Admittedly that might not work in parts of the world such as America where the closest shop is a car ride away it only works if you design cities for people (as opposed to design them for cars)
Yeah, where I'm from it was always just expected that if you have a patch of dirt you grow some tomatoes, squash, okra, carrots and so on.
I was just being a pedantic so-and-so, sorry One of my many faults I guess. But it does appear to be true that more people here are growing some of their own food anyway. And your point about car-centeredness is correct in too many ways.
