The weekly shop...........Back to the 'OLD DAYS' How that's changed. In the past. One shopping bag. Spuds and veg went in first. No bar-code scanning, either Mr Jones totted it up in his head or he jotted it down on paper. Get home and unload. 'Recycling' What's that? Brown paper bags used for some produce could be used to light the fire with, or even used in the loo. Left over food was often, bubble and sqeak later, remains fed the chickens. The pet dog or cat, ate the same as you. Now the corner shop has gone and here stands the supermarket. I only came in for a loaf of bread,some veg, a couple of pints of milk. At the check out. Plus the bits I wanted. I now have. A set of sauspans on special offer, lots of tasties I've never had before and the list goes on. Not forgetting of course, all the packaging. Ask yourself. Have we really progressed for the better?????????????????
