Speakers Club, Amazon, and "Don't Eat Beef"

"You can save the Rainforest" was the title of my ten minute speech at Craven Speakers Club on Monday 28th Jan, it went well. The tips I have learned at Speakers Club are helpful.

I'm not giving the text here - You'll have to come and listen to it sometime!!

I wore a brand new t-shirt that a friend had given me two years earlier with pictures of useful fruits of the Amazon.

and would you believe it - whilst I was practicing the speech two hours before the talk, she skyped (phoned) me from Brazil! "What should I tell them in my speech?" I asked

"Tell them not to eat beef" she said. "They are cutting down the forest for soya and then the soya is exported as cattle food to Britain."
