In the 1980s, there was a fad where every bit of food advertising had to make sure we knew about Oat Bran. It was added to everything, and all news/conversation about nutrition was “now with Oat Bran.”
Turns out that maybe it is actually good for you in some ways, but it certainly has no business being in every part of the conversation…

This summer there will three babies born here, one to a couple living in a shepherd's hut, one to a couple living in an old caravan, one who will be living in a yurt. This is us erecting the yurt.
In much of remote rural Scotland, people of child-bearing age cannot afford homes.

Wall trellis erected. The yurt is being erected on tarpaulins which are covered in carpet which in turn is being covered in linoleum. I am anxious that this will not be sufficient if we have a wet summer, but it's better than nothing.
Frame of the roof erected. This went pretty quickly.
Framework covered with old bedsheets.
Bedsheets covered with insulating felt.

Aluminum was once incredibly expensive to mine too, and now they’re ubiquitous and cheap, thanks to the invention of the Bayer process in the late 1800s.
I hope diamond goes the same way. At least it will stop the inhumane treatment of diamond mine workers.

"Since the reigns of Edward VI, Elizabeth I, and Philip and Mary, various
nationwide British statutes were in effect that should have allowed for a slow, Burkean evolution from artisan to industry. Instead, in 1809, Parliament revoked every piece of legislation protecting woolens artisans in order to permit the overnight #industrialization of the textile business. The reaction was immediate."
It's fascinating how, in every retelling of #Luddism the 'causes' are all different, yet all true.
