Something we should be doing automatically πŸŽπŸŠπŸŒπŸžπŸ πŸ…πŸ‘

Fiona from Henderson

France has started forcing supermarkets to donate food instead of throwing it away.
Something we should be doing here, instead they ship it off to the pig farms.
This article (see link below) is well worth a read.
There are far too many rules, PC police around the corner and still in this day and age, we are starving, our friends are going hungry, our children are starving. They going with out the basic stables to keep on living a healthy life.
Yet, the supermarkets, the restaurants, the fast food outlets etc ... continually throw away perfectly good, healthy food.
To me, this is totally unacceptable. We are throwing away more that we are consuming, both in the supermarkets etc ... and our homes.
I remember when baking our own bread, cakes etc .. was cheaper than buying, not so much now.
Buying healthy food is far more expensive than buying fast food and/or unhealthy options. WHY?
I know that I went slightly off course with the last two sentences, but this whole topic really gets my blood boiling, the waste, the expense - EVERYTHING.
Our friends, our families, our neighbourhoods are hungry - let's do something.

An Automated Voice Message From Spark? Another phone scam?

Matt from Henderson

Has anyone received a automated voice message from Spark as of lately? Our phone has been getting this quite recently. Has happened to us about 3 times now. I haven't been able to write the whole auto message so I don't know what the message has been about. Apparently my mum did hear the automated message more throughly and was saying that your broadband had been disconnected or something like that?, which was not true. Spark will not ring us or anyone regarding our broadband or our phone lines. It sounds like those phone calls about Microsoft. They say they want to look at your computer. You can say "No, but can I look at your computer?" Microsoft never rings you directly to have your computer checked.
