The air fares would kill that idea.....
I can eat meat with an easy conscience. That's a good reason to be cheerful.
I sympathise with farmers of meat. However for those who regard meat as an essential part of our diet, the target is good. So many young people are going totally vegan that as a nation the target will be easily achieved while many of us consume meat with gay abandon. Gay abandon in the traditional meaning.
Wow! Well done! What a lovely young lady you are too.

Our granddaughter suggested rainbow colours, this morning.
NZ has a thriving tourist industry. Would make a change from sheep and geysers
This made me chuckle ... I've just received an advert from TripAdvisor about celebrating the Chinese New Year ... Needless to say (or thankfully) it lists the Chinese restaurants in my area, rather than flights to China, with possibly the additional delight of also returning with a dose of the Coronavirus!
The contractors have built the foundation platform for the observatory, they reckon there's 8 1/2 tonnes of "stuff" in there, concrete foundation, broken up rubble (Left over stone and blocks), scalpings whacked down, then a layer of concrete to bed the pier into.
The paving slabs are for a path around the whole base.
Looks good! What sort of roof are you going for?
A dome, or something which slides On and Off? Back in 2006-2008, I was briefly familiar with the observatory at the OU, and that had a circular rotating dome roof. It was more difficult to adjust than I expected, but we could normally call on assistance...
Puts my diy raised beds to shame!
I'll be going for a basic roll-off roof as it's easier and cheaper to automate than a dome. I did consider a dome at the start, but the projected costs became a bit frightening.
I pity the poor sod buying this house, not knowing what this concrete was for, then trying to remove it!
Having done my back in just digging out a washing line pole base, I'm damned if I'm buying off Dave!
It might be just big enough for a small greenhouse.
Given the dark-sky location, it may sell as a going concern with an obsy thrown in.
Found a fiver I didn't know I had, which as payday is not until Monday is much appreciated
Found my smoke alarm works, got a new hotplate and the instructions said to run it for 5 minutes with nothing on it to burn off the protective coating, well it did and that set the smoke alarm off
Half day at work as it was time for my annual electricity safety check and the guy turned up at 2.15 rather than me sitting around waiting on him to turn up until 5
And I have Monday off!
And a job interview for a promotion to line up
Good luck with the promotion interview. Thought of you today as I searched for knickers that fitted! Ha!
Also - I read your first sentence as liver - not fiver! I thought, well, it#s all those glasses of water reviving it.
It's 2.2 metres square, so as much area as a std 8'x6' greenhouse. The massive base could hold a fair amount of heat, something useful for a greenhouse, but which I will have to minimise for the obsy.
Yes, but where is the isolated pier ? Every time you move or a lorry or car passes on the road there will be surface vibrations that will affect photographic work.
