About cherry blossoms




Een paar weken terug bezochten we onze Belgische fruitstreek.
Het was een mooie dag, zonnig en warm !
Maar vorige week veroorzaakte extreme vorst schade in de fruitteelt ...
Ook in onze tuin zijn alle knoppen van de okkernotenboom bevroren ...

A few weeks ago we visited our Belgian fruit-growing region.
It was a most lovely day, sunny and warm !
But last week extreme frost caused damage to blossoming trees ...
All the buds of the walnut tree in our garden were frozen too ...

Week 15 - Paper




Paper from Flow magazine,

Bassett's Liquorice Allsorts ...

Bassett's use the story of their creation in their marketing. In 1899 Charlie Thompson, a sales representative, supposedly dropped a tray of samples he was showing a client in Leicester, mixing up the various sweets. After he scrambled to re-arrange them, the client was intrigued by the new creation. Quickly the company began to mass-produce the allsorts and they became very popular.

Bassett's Liquorice Allsorts

De anekdote over het ontstaan van Engelse drop luidt dat een vertegenwoordiger van een dropfabrikant bij een klant per ongeluk de verschillende soorten drop door elkaar husselde en dat het onbedoelde resultaat de klant erg beviel.
