For the Love of Cheese!
Cheese is that one food that always seems to be capturing the world, crumb by crumb. Whether it’s melting some good old Cathedral City on toast, sipping some stilton from a broccoli soup, or spreading red Leicester all over your favourite crackers there always seems to be a way or a reason to enjoy a good cheese. Since the build-up to Christmas, there have been some rather exciting cheese flavours that have crept into the trends of early 2018 thanks to the Cheshire Cheese Company, and here’s the cheese that every dairy lover needs to try as the new year continues!
The Health Trend’s Impact on Cocktails
Over the past year, the health trend has been taking hold of various aspects of modern culture. The health trend is in no way a bad thing. With many people getting more frequent exercise and eating well, health issues are becoming less of a worry for a growing number of people. As the impact of the health trend grows, there appears to be no escape from the healthy life style and alcoholic drinks are no exception to escape the health trends grasp.
The Reality of Student Life
Ah, the student life: something that some experience, some resent, some live and some have absolutely no idea about. For the most part, every student tires of hearing the same old "oh students have it so easy," and how much "discount" we get on booze. The reality is, the discount helps but it doesn’t have that much impact on finance at all, and saying we have it easy it like saying minimum wage is fair. It isn’t.
Why Rabbits Make Fantastic Pets
First off, most people think rabbits are just outdoor pets, living in hutches and stroked maybe once or twice a day with playtime in runs when the weathers nice. This could not be further from the truth. Rabbits make fantastic pets, and they can live in the home and can be taught to use a litter box just like a kitten would be taught, although some bunny-proofing will need doing to avoid any much-loved items (or phone chargers) getting chewed to bits! They are intelligent and can grow to be very affectionate. They just need a little time to get to know their owner.
The Presence of Drug Culture
While most modern-day parents seem more than happy for their children to go out on an alcohol-infused bender every weekend, they are less pleased by the thought that their child might be out there high as a kite on some class A party drug, and fair enough. If this is the case though, why are drug and rave cultures still such a mass part of modern society and more so, why are they brushed under the carpet and hidden from society as though the person taking the drug is a sin in themselves?
