    Sourcing bulk wood pellet

    Presumably I'm not alone in struggling to secure an affordable delivery? I'm ready to turn the thing off and hope the world's a more normal place come next winter. EN+A1, bulk loads - is anyone taking deliveries able to disclose what you're paying /tonne?

    Just when you thought their hypocrisy has reached a high, you get a statement on National TV that food made from insect protein is vegan. This was for a dog food, which is equally mental thinking of feeding your dogs a vegan diet. Insects obviously aren't fluffy enough to care about.
