Economy Gastronomy!

I’ve recommended the TV show to a few people now – so I thought I’d drop a blog post about it up here! There have only been two episodes so far (Wednesday BBC2), but we’ve really enjoyed them and I’ve just found out they do a book… Two top chefs Allegra McEvedy and Paul Merret have devised the Economy Gastronomy system to aid people in slashing their food bills (never a bad thing in a recession!), whilst eating better than they ever have before! This covers people who don’t know how to cook, to those that do and don’t have time! Well worth a watch and I suspect the book is just as good. See the iPlayer here for Episode… Continue reading »

Paddington is Under Investigation!

In a new book to commemorate Paddington Bear’s 50th birthday (he doesn’t look a day over 21 in my opinion!) entitled “Paddington Here and Now”, Paddington will be questioned by the UK Immigration authorities! Michael Bond, 83, the author of the Paddington books says: “Although the world has changed considerably over the past 30 years, he remains exactly the same – eternally optimistic and ever open to what life has to offer. As Paddington was hidden in a lifeboat aboard a ship in Peru by Aunt Lucy when she went to live in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima he is officially a stowaway, and should rightfully be questioned about his immigration status! I look forward to reading this!

“I fought the Lloyds”

I didn’t actually, but it appears Oystar might have done. They’ve written a classic protest song about claiming money back from banks. A cause championed by Martin Lewis at MoneySavingExpert.com, which lead him to feature in the video for “I fought the Lloyds”, even if you aren’t reclaiming your charges it’s a laugh! You can help get this to Number 1 for just 50p by visiting the Bank Charges Song information page!

Radio 1 – Established 1967

I’m not sure if I’m tempted into this: It contains tracks from the last 40 years of Radio 1, and 40 of the biggest current artists performing them!It includes Kaiser Chiefs (Flowers In The Rain), Amy Winehouse (Cupid), Robbie Williams (Lola), Sugababes (Betcha By Golly, Wow), Foo Fighters (Band On The Run), Kylie (Love Is The Drug), Keane (Under Pressure), James Morrison (Come Back And Stay), Razorlight (Englishman In New York), Mark Ronson (All I Need To Get By), Girls Aloud (Teenage Dirtbag), Hard-Fi (Toxic). I liked some of the versions I heard during the week before their 40th birthday on air, but I have a feeling it won’t be a patch on Live Lounge, which I got for my… Continue reading »
