    Hi, from another local person. I live in Guildford but work in Hampshire (Petersfield). Most of my exercise takes place in Stoke Park, Guildford, and I'm sure I've seen a couple of other paleo people about there. The lack of shoes and doing pull-ups on the outside gym rather give the game away.

    Hello from sunny west Yorkshire. I loved pasta too and recently read about banana flour on MDA, might be on my "to try list". Good luck with the goals.

    JuliaKathryn - Actually I'm terrible on a bike but it's nice to get outdoors. I've only had a bike for about a year, my last one was when I was 10. I do like watching the tour highlights though, the stamina of those guys is so impressive. Are you a cycling fan? Nice to see so many local people. Thanks for the tip paleo-bunny, I'll check it out.

    'Lo everyone else! Chronyx! Addlestone! a coupla miles away! We lived in Hamm Court on the Thames in a lovely bungalow. We're kicking ourselves thinking how much that house is worth now!

    I am only consoled knowing that marmite is in most stores here in Westchester. Not sure how to eat it now that I no longer eat bread!
    I know the place! (Although isn't it the canal system rather than the Thames?)

    Yup house prices here are insane, good if you got in at the right time, not so good for your self-employed 27 year old Primalists ...still as long as I have good food and a healthy body I can go without owning for now!

    Hmmm, somehow I don't think it would work as well as hummus if you dipped carrot or celery in it! Bleurgh.

    Just back from five days in the Peak District. I was assessing five teams doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold expeditions. Appalling weather a lot of the time and I was really impressed with how all 23 of them coped.

    While I was near the top of Rushup Edge on Monday waiting for the teams to come through, I saw a vision come out of the cloud. It was somebody running up the hill. When the apparition got closer I saw that it was a bloke in shorts and 'T' shirt. He was about 70 - 75 years old. Use it or lose it, and he was certainly using it. After about twenty minutes he came running back down again. Must have been one of them there fell runners.

    I'm back up there again Friday next week assessing three teams doing their Silver expeditions. I certainly hope the weather is a bit better. Is the drought over yet?
    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
