... Syndrome and that's why he is portrayed as a big brave Knight. We then headed to the Abbey. This is truly the most spectacular part of the place. The architecture is incredible.

There are chickens, turkeys, rabbits, dogs and a traumatized duck (Blue the dog loved to round her up and sit on her). My day to day work involved intensive care of some ...

... sell, and most people keep their own animals. Instead of going to market to buy meat, you go to buy the animal and raise your own meat.

Been watching these strange little creatures called quail. Tiny little birds that are easily cupped between your two hands. They are so small they're hardly used for meat, but their eggs are considered a bit of a delicacy - especially in the UK. What makes a delicacy? If it's the ...
