The main title of this Topic is the incentive for this post but I expect to go way beyond just the dozens of places I have lived over the years and tell of what I learned from school, work and life over the years. The choice of title for this thread will become clearer as we get to later years. It is as much to pass the long hours sitting here alone for much of my day as anything else so I hope I will not bore you all too much so jump in with recollections of your own life if a bit of mine brings back thoughts of your own. My earliest recollection is watching my mum cutting a round of cheese in the back room of the grocery store in the little village of East Meon in Hampshire, England, I would have been about 3 at that time. I do know that prior to that we lived near the town of Sale on the outskirts of Manchester, where we lived with my aunt who was active in the early vegetarian movement and wrote the book 'Vegetarian Recipes Without Dairy Produce' brought on by the shortage of these things during the war years. My mother looked after children at the Vegetarian Home for Children at this time, this led to me becoming a life long vegetarian, not however a vegan that being a step too far for me, I cannot imagine doing without my eggs and cheese but thats a whole different discussion! At age about 5 we moved in with my grandparents on the south coast due to the logistics of my starting school which is where I will pick up a future post.
