    Plastic

    Plastic bottles everywhere
    The people who drop them just don't care
    About their local eviroment
    They leave it to the government
    To clean up their mess
    And they think they know best
    But all the plastic in the sea's
    Is starting to kill the fish birds and bees
    So my message to the youth of today
    Is don't just think of yesterday
    Think about this planet now
    And simple thinks like how
    Putting your plastic in a bin
    Will really help the world to win
    The fight against plastic
    And that would be fantastic.
    It's not the dog in the fight,it's the fight in the dog that matters.

    Re: Plastic

    It's amazing really, when we grew up, people used their own shopping bags, things were wrapped in paper or grease proof paper. All of which is biodegradable. So why is it that everything today is wrapped or encased in plastic. It's not rocket science is it, let's go back to paper bags, and glass bottles !

    I suppose being the age most of us are, or are approaching, any comment about what goes on today may be written off as 'grumpy old farts'. Giving a chat to a local history group in January next, about a typical Lancashire mining community (flat caps, pigeons, ferrets and all). Nearing the end of life I have found it to be a good exercise to look back on your life, picking out all of the significant bits and setting it out as if you had to put it in to a 45 minute briefing. I have not been able to avoid contrasting attitudes then, with now. to cut i short we 'scavenged' coal from slag heaps and railway lines (that would be called recycling today). The ragbone mans cart left our streets with less old clothes on it than when he entered, wimmin made socks and mitts from the sleeves, and peg rugs with anything left over (again recycling, and charity shops have replaced the ragbone cart). I realise now that the real heroes of WW2 were the wimmin, clothing and food on coupons, that is if you had the money to buy owt. What those ladies would have made of all the food we chuck away today does not bare thinking about. We have become a nation of wasteful wankers

    Long gone the days of "Mek do and mend" Ron. Tha dunt see bin lids running around these days wearin short keks wi moor patches on the arse than a Welsh quilt. Jumpers wi moor oyles darned than an owd string vest n socks wi moor darning cotton than wool. If tha wanted a swig o water tha stuck thee crust under the tap n guzzled away or off ta the park wi thee mates fer footy tha took an owd pop bottle filled wi H2O. Now a world of plenty not appreciated n gud stuff wi plenty o life left just lobbed by idle fukkers who are too lazy ta re cycle or bin it. Gets on me fukkin tits when out hurdy gurdyin I spend valuable time digging oyles only ta reveal empty beer n pop cans that lazy twats av just lobbed when emptied.

    they are lucky nowadays, Dave, they don't bother with repairs, in fact the more rips in your jeans, the more fashionable you are. I wish that fashion had been around when I was younger, would have saved a lot of feckin about.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    I've hoyed better pair of jeans in the bin than some worn today, if they'd walked around like that in our day, somebody would have took pity on them and given them an old pair of theirs.
