once again I'm swamped already so can't help much with the prep but would love to get up early to cook on saturday (seriously ;)
sorry I couldn't make the meeting - the plan sounds good. thanks for the heads up about BND - will try to get P&P to join us for chilled out frolicks like last year (unless there are objections)
Joey - we still have the bike trailer and my flatmates want to see you again. I suggest (and to everyone else too) you come round sometime tomorrow (friday) evening when there will be food and chatting in a relaxed sort of way at 116 marchmont road.

Hi guys. This is ace. Much better than that archaic email malarky!
The first november sounds grand. I've got a bit of a headache now so can't think much but will report back when head clarity has arrived. xx

We should make a fly posting crew and do this joint! By joint, I mean city, not lump of meat or those funny cigarettes that kids in the park smoke on. Who will join?

I'll copy up posters and fill 'em out.

To the people that understand the BB forum-is there any way we could post up a rota on here-like an editable document? Would be good for the sign up sheet and also we could make a seperate one for flyposting.
I liked the plug Esme. Come to our bonfire tomoro!!

how's this?

not a final version AT ALL, just an idea (someone from P&P uses them all the time so I thought it was worth a try)
no worries if people don't like it. If anyone else fancies setting it up better, it's really easy :)

It seems to be alright for us, but I'll still make a physical version of which can be laminated and kept in the Forest, at the main counter, for people to find out about and sign up for. xxx

righto.
do we need someone with a responsibility to make sure the online one and the physical one correspond? or shall we just make sure that if we sign up on one we have to sign up on the other? ..hmm.. then it sort of makes one obsolete, right?
Maybe someone who's at the forest lots could just keep an eye on them both at important times?
sorry - I don't like to suggest things I can't do myself..
happy weekend x

Hey hey, I would like to propose a rocket stove making workshop at mine on thursday-i have two big oil bins, dunno what else we need but i know alice n paulo and soph were all up for some rocket creation so i'll try and get that to happen. Good opportunity as we dont have anything to replace the flasks.
If at all possible id like to not flypost if alice n joey are on it but if neccessary i can still come, maybe wednesday-was thinking to go to mark thomas at the alternative book fair so we could do some leith flyering then?
Ps do we have a backup plan if we cant get people to sign up for the day shift? Jake may well not be back from London by this weekend..Sorry i cant be there!!
COME TO MINE FOR ROCKET STOVE MAKING!

Maybe a quick email around the list to pick up anyone who hasn't found our little nest of internetism that is the forum?

Unhelpfully I am feeding paying customers at Engine Shed on Saturdays. But I could help prep again on the Friday eve.

Imagine if Blue Peter did a Rocket Stove make. It would blast that Tracy Island out of the water.

oh hang on, I won't be there next week!!
well.. OK I'm happy either way, though would rather be involved than not.. but not if it's understaffed as it were :P

the general feeling now seems to be.. leave the next food not bombs till buy nothing day.

am I right? I'm not here next weekend anyway so it makes no difference to me as such, only several people have been saying next weekend is not so good for them either?

thoughts?

Yay. Buy nothing day. Check out http://www.buynothingday.co.uk/ for some groovy plans.
Its on saturday 29th Novemebr. Is everyone up for doing something? Last year we had an amzing time on princes street, giving free food to bemused christmas shoppers and whiling away the day with the Free Shop, The Edinburgh Clowns and a whole host of other lovely people.
Maybe we coud meet some time next week to plan. Can i suggest monday evening at 9pm at Teviot. That way people who do people and planet can come along and we might even get some newbies to join our ranks. Let me know if that sounds good.
it would be really cool if we could properly recalim part of princes street with sofas, carpet, music... e.t.c. Does everyone have the energy for it?
Oh, and the clowns want to do something and have asked if we are doing anything. I said yes. Is that ok?
So, lets hear your voices to teviot on monday and buy nothing day... x
