a good idea?
A great idea?
A truly wonderful, scrumptiddelyumtious squashdoodlingly marvellously brilliant idea*?
A total crock?
I ALWAYS APPRECIATED
the theory. But I never (r) never liked the practice. Lousy idea.
IN NEW ZEALAND
farmers don’t like the idea either. Especially those that nurture cattle-cows (one of NZ’s biggest income producers, boom boom!)

I USED TO LOVE IT
when I could get up early and have a beautiful sunny world all to myself. The seasons were evened out more back then, it seems.

* Yes indeed, I have been watching the BFG. Now my very favourite movie, along with Frozen, Brave, Tangled (I’ve always had a soft spot for long-haired blondes …). So having glanced askance at my favourites you may now run a psychological profile on me—and no-one will blame you if you run screaming from the room.
