Today's You and Yours -- http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b017mvxb -- had an
interesting line from a retail analysts on how consumers can help to manage
their rising food prices (the programme was commenting on last weeks Grant
Thornton report on why food prices will take a steep hike over the next 12
months -- http://www.grant-thornton.co.uk/pdf/GTI_Food_and_Beverage_Nov11.pdf
). He said:
1. Cook more from raw ingredients;
2. Avoid "higher added value" processed goods; and
3. He stated, "I'm not being flippant, but people should grow more of their own

get on and grow their food!
"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with
God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burrough, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
