Here's a heartwarming news story about a McDonald's restaurant in Tavistock, Devon, which was forced to close because people preferred to eat the excellent local food available. I'm lovin' it!
In other news, I won a copy of Paul Waddington's 21st Century Smallholder (subtitled "how to go back to the land without leaving home") in a competition on Selfsufficientish. The book arrived today - thanks! I've had a quick flick through and it looks great, full of useful and interesting stuff. I'm looking forward to reading it cover to cover.
