Where on earth did she see little piggies roaming free?
Good point, never seen any in Switzerland, in the Scottish Borders yes.

Think the farmers only get extra for having the cows roaming free?

They do, just outside our village, they have huge fields and a small wood to themselves, even to the point that some wild boars sometimes join them! In May, our village organise a pigs race, where everyone places their bets and all the pigs have the names of our local councillors!

Wait, you took a first date to dinner?
Take pen and paper and start taking some notes here. First of all, you don't want to get stuck with a complete psycho/sleeping pill/annoying nag for the entirety of a dinner. You do coffee dates with a few pre-selected phrases in case YOU REALLY NEED TO EVACUATE THE PREMISES. Like, oh I forgot to feed the goldfish or I'm really sorry but the EF community needs me and it's an emergency. Also, make sure you choose a coffee spot which you don't frequent all the time, just in case it doesn't work out and your favorite cafe also ends up HER favorite cafe. What else, let's see. What you really do is, befriend somebody you really want to be with...heck go crazy, even somebody out of your league. Then tell her, that you're going on dates, etc. this should spark the inner "oh, what am I am chopped liver" argument in any woman on the market. Beware of sexual freaks, whenever you spot one, make sure you cherish that (unless she's married of course). If you're the sexual freak, then don't spill the beans on the first date but gradually ease her into it. Let's see, invest in quality cologne so that people remember you by your scent. Unless you like cheap cologne, then let that Old Spice be your trademark. Oh and be creative. Alright, this is a lot of information at once. Let it sink in, take notes and ask questions.

Don’t know if I understood this correctly but my Spanish friends say over there the opposite is true and it is actually forbidden to allow domestic pigs to roam free . The wild ones are a protected breed and they are worried about the gene pool being diluted through cross breeding with domestic pigs . You can get a substantial fine if caught and any offspring need to be neutered

see the little piggies roaming free in the fields who will eventually be sent for the chop...


Bye-bye love!

Just to say: Most piggies (1.5 million in CH) and chickens (2.7 million) are not to be seen at all, they are (as everywhere else) behind closed doors.


Anyway, you failed her test miserably. Better luck next time.

There are pig farms near here with pigs roaming free in fields, hundreds of them.

So, after almost a year of miserable loneliness, I got a date last night, through the village inn owner who has made it her mission to play Cupido with me. So, there I am, all settled, said date on whom I had a slight crush, I confess, orders her food and I order mine. I have hardly finished to state my desired degree of cooking for my steak (bloody, thank you!) that she points to me that meat is a disgusting form of human depravity, that she is a strong vegan and militant for animals rights and that she avoids driving along the main road so that she won't have to see the little piggies roaming free in the fields who will eventually be sent for the chop...


Bye-bye love!
And of course if she had of looked like this you would have immeditely converted to an honest vegan

Re: The shortest date ever!

Despite the space, they are fenced up, still. The wild boars are seen as a nuisance and pest here. Only the forest rangers are licenced to kill them, which they do occasionally.

That’s true.

They do have a perimeter fence and lots of little ‘Nissan’ huts dotted around the place but they have a very large area to wander around.
