Days of wine... and more wine

Published by Jake Smith

We went to a posh wine tasting recently and it was appropriately lovely and snobbish at the same time, with plenty of different vintages to taste. There were also some “expert” chaps standing at tables laden with various wine samples, and we thought they were there to tell us which ones were good and which ones were bad. One stout fellow with a handlebar moustache ceremoniously poked his entire nose into a plastic cup half-filled with some pale yellow grape and snorted ceremoniously, drinking in the “notes,” before taking a healthy mouthful. We watched, fascinated, as he swished the wine around in his mouth and then, to our horror, spit it out into a bucket. The spouse and I looked at each other. Our mouths were agape.  Read more...

Super Survival Tins

Published by Jake Smith

It's a rough world out there, and life moves pretty fast. At least that was the consensus around the shipping department the other day, when our lunchtime conversation got round to what we should never be without in case of an emergency. We claimed that it was a good Black Forest gateau and some Chunky Monkey, while others mentioned favored books and music. One poor fellow* said he couldn't be without his girlfriend Liz, an idea we all jeered at until he showed us a picture of her and we had to say, "well, she's not bad at that." On a serious note, and with a mind to an uncertain future, we think it's best if one keeps a few of these Survival Kits around in case the world's end is just around the corner. They are amazingly compact (11 cm x 11 cm x 3 cm) considering the amount of gear they pack, and resemble sardine tins with their iconic pull tabs. And rest assured that each one holds dozens of helpful things that just might come in very handy if you are ever faced with interplanetary robots threatening to ruin the best night of your life.  Read more...

Smell Up The Joint With Stinky Candles!

Published by Jake Smith

Go ahead: call us odd (many do - we're used to it). We love the smell of petrol and the smell of motor oil. It must have something to do with our fantasy that secretly double as The Stig on Top Gear. In fact, we prefer the smell of most anything that isn't flowery or powdery or fake. We want smells that make us think of our favourite things.  Read more...
