The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
I dont know how many of you saw the news and the fact that tesco were selling beefburgers that contained quite a high volume of horsemeat. Now I for one am very careful about what goes into a lot of products and what i eat the fact of the matter is if it had been labelled properly then it would have been acceptable and given the Consumer the right to choose. how many people would buy these if correctly labelled?? i can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org I would not knowingly eat horsemeat as i was brought up with horses and think it is morally wrong most people wouldnt eat their best friend ie a Cat or a Dog ( although in some countries they are bred for meat) why is a horse different?
however what was the horsemeat doing in beefburgers in the first place. The factory does not use horsemeat or deal in it so how it ended up being there is seriously worrying. I think serious questions need to be asked to Tesco and why this was allowed to happen. Also Hygiene standards and cleanliness too.
People from different religions ie muslim also found pork in products labelled Beef so in a way there is a lot of cheating going on i think this is important and if tesco would like to answer my questions ill publish them that is all for now on this subject! also the scandal in the Daily Mail tesco making ill timed tweets and jokes http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2264394/Horse-meat-scandal-hit-Tesco-centre-Twitter-backlash-customer-care-message-told-followers-staff-hit-hay.html
On the plus side I am visiting Scothot wth college who is all going? and id be interested to have a chat with you x
a newspaper published an article on Thursday stating that ” i was now writing food columns for them” so i contacted an event which i attended in good faith on December 1st. I tweeted both the paper and the event about obtaining a press pass and the event added me to the press list. i didnt think there was a problem as said paper tweeted me saying thanks Rona. On Monday (3rd December) at teatime i had a phone call from said paper who had said that i didn’t work for the paper and i was in no way associated with said paper. i said i had a column in said paper and behaved appropriately. the events organiser was most unhappy by how i conducted myself apparently all i did was speak to people and ask opinions, However i did criticise one celebrity chef who failed to wash her hands after blowing her nose and still served the food to members of the public. But i think this is important for people to hear! if people like her dont wash her hands then what hope do any of us have. this chef has won awards. Now i will apologize if i got my wires crossed but i genuinely thought after the paper saying i was writing for them that i was writing for them as a freelance food and drinks journalist. or certainly that my column would be going live. This was my one big chance to prove myself and ive somehow managed to complicate things before i have even started. However i wont give up on my dreams i have the statistics for my blog and in the last month have hit 1000 hits so i think i am getting through to people. but as i said i don’t think ive done anything wrong and will continue to blog here. please please let me know your thoughts on this and where i go from here?
