Whilst I respect people who won't eat meat/fish because it means killing something, I don't quite understand then why then they want to eat something tasting like what they refuse to eat in the first place?

I don't want to get myself in to trouble and I have no issues about anybody wanting to be gay but similarly I don't quite understand why one in a gay couple seems to me at least, dress/act/behave/imitate/call it what you will, like the opposite gender anyway?

I would have thought the reason to be gay in the first place is because you don't find the opposite sex to your desire/want?

Live and let live and all that, I'm happy to be in the company of vegetarians and/ or gays, I just can't grasp why after they made their life choice, why then they appear to want to get as close to what they've rejected in the first place?

I would have thought if you didn't want to eat meat you wouldn't want then to eat something that tastes like meat and similarly if you choose not to be with a man / woman, then why would you find a partner of the same sex who (to me at least) appears to act/behaviour/aspire to being of the opposite gender and that gender being the you've chosen not to be with in the first place? Again I would have thought if you wanted to be with someone of the same sex you wouldn't want them to act/be like the sex they are not and be like the sex you've rejected in the first place?

Obviously I'm missing something that may even be obvious to most but not to me?

And just to make clear I'm only generalising, I'm sure lots of vegetarians don't eat meat 'flavoured' food and lots of gay couples don't have someone more masculine/feminine than their partner.

Sluffy, they don't taste anything like meat. Veggie burgers are pretty bland unless you put plenty of spices in them. My brother isn't a veggie, and although he'll enjoy the odd veggie burger or Quorn bacon sandwich, it's nothing like the real thing.
There's sometimes a hint/smell with veggie bacon or burgers, but you come to enjoy them for what they are. 
And what they're not.
Hitler was a veggie, and suffered from chronic flatulence. Something that tends to be overlooked due to some of his more unfortunate hobbies.

They’re delicious. Just put whatever condiments on that you like and they don’t take much getting used to. My wife is veggie and I often prefer her meat free meals.
Thanks, I'm going to try them.

I'm not a veggie but would like to cut down on the meat I eat.

To really enjoy veggie food you have to be a decent cook IMO - then you can guarantee the flavours you like. I was a veggie for 17 years back in the day and I could do wonders with Sosmix and TVP but I occasionally bought prefab shite like Linda McCartneys burgers and they were 50% fat.
Decent chef, decent grub regardless of whether or not it contains meat.

Bloody hell, Sosmix. That brings back a few memories. Not all of them good.

The cheese, leek, and onion pies are nice. As is the Aunt Bessie's meat free toad in the hole, although I can only usually get it from Sainsbury's.
Plenty to choose from in most supermarkets now.

Thanks for that Bonce.

We do online shops with Ocado and Sainsburys so I'll check those out.

WE mainly prepare our meals from scratch,  but we all need lazy days when you just push something in the oven that you like without  spending hours in the kitchen.

I find the Chemo has really affected my taste buds and I'm always searching around trying new things.
I'm on the 7th of eight three week cycles so hopefully if my bloods remain good I should be through it by mid-September.

Preparing meals from scratch is great, but lazy buggers like me tend to go for the quicker option. Cutlery is jewellery to me. How hard is it to hold a pie? Very Happy
Really glad to hear you're nearing the end of your chemo cycle. I'm sure lockdown didn't help, but you're getting there. I'm backing you to come through with flying colours, as, I'm sure, is every nutter on here.

Thanks for that Bonce.

It didn't help having an 11 week suspension  of my course after just three cycles due to Covid, that was a national decision by NHS England.

I really feel for all these poor people who had surgery suspended and who must be worried sick  about  if and when they will get the treatment they need.

Long may they be so.

Thanks I very much appreciate the thought.

I'm fine apart from one or two issues that comes as part and parcel of growing old.

My best days are behind me but I'm not on the slippery slope yet and don't expect to be for many a year to come.

I quite enjoy (within reason) the arguments, rows, pettiness, game playing, vendettas, point scoring and all the other stuff that goes on, although I never expected to be in the centre of it like I seem to be but I guess that comes with years of having to umpire my best what goes on, on here (and other sites I've modded) over the years.

I had though, a few months back, got sick and tired of the games that had been going on for years but had started to get well out of hand - so much so that it was becoming unpleasant for me to post.  I even announced behind the scenes that I was going to leave and thanked Karly in particular for all he's done for the site over the years - far more than I've ever done - but as the reality of Covid began to hit and I decided to almost voluntarily go in to isolation so to speak, I realised that if for no other reason posting on here helps pass some of my time away, so I decided to do a bit of a U-turn and stay.

I did however lay down the law and made it known I was no longer going to tolerate abuse or the game playing that had been going on.

Obviously it didn't make me popular and once again many were on my case again but a few well chosen bans sent the message that I was serious about this and most of it has stopped for now.

There's still a few digs out there but not on the scale it had gotten to.

I don't do grudges (yes I've seen the emoticons on the other thread) otherwise one or two of you would certainly have gone for good from here a long time ago!

I know I'm a required taste but I am fair and honest and treat people equally.

You've all been around long enough to know what I'm like and you are all still here so despite what you may think of me, I can't be that bad or you would have found somewhere else to your liking by now.

Anyway onwards and upwards, the makings of a great season ahead of us and Covid, old age and illness, or whatever gets thrown at us we will all see it through and have a few laughs along the way!

It's always fun, despite everything that kicks off now and again. It's a mixture of the Bash Street kids, and an old folks home, the residents of which get by on a diet of mind altering drugs. 
Yours is not a job for the faint hearted. You're probably as barmy as the rest of us. Very Happy
Let's hope we're all soon talking about the mighty Whites.

Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, is a man after my own heart. During the course of his childhood he fell from a height of three floors, hit his head on a stone and could barely stand afterwards.
At the age of three, drank a bowl full of acidic water and later swallowed a pin.
Burnt himself seriously in a gunpowder explosion.
Fell onto a hot cast-iron frying pan, burning his side.
Survived an accidental poisoning from keeping varnished items in his bedroom during the night.
Was hit on the head by a rock
Fell into a river and nearly died.

Wonderful effort.

Reminds me of the story I heard many years ago. 
An Italian man who lived up in one of the mountain villages was feeling tired of life, and decided to end it all by putting his head in his gas oven. After some minutes, and feeling not too well, he changed his mind.
Pleased with his decision, he sat down and went to light a cigarette. The remaining gas immediately ignited, and set his hair on fire. in a panic, he ran into the street and dived into a horse trough full of water. Unfortunately, he knocked himself out, and drowned.
As they say in Scotland, whats for you, won't go past you.

The Black Dyke Mills Band were preparing for a concert at Carnegie Hall in the USA a few years ago, and their American hosts got in touch to ask if they could possibly change their name to the British Mills Band.
The Band declined, and the concert went ahead to great acclaim.
