||There are few more harrowing incidents one can face than discovering the unauthorised usage of ones personal drinking vessel. Whether it be finding your prized Dalek Invasion of Earth mug abandoned, stained and forlorn in the staff room sink, or the unexplained absence of a miss matched Denby, the affront to ones sense of pride, dignity and self can be shattering. The resulting mistrust poisons working relationships and slowly spreads through the department and entire establishment. Until all that remains from a once proud, noble and dynamic workforce, is a seething ball of contempt and inefficiency. |
It needn't be this way. We can end it all with proper vessel identification. For many years now those of us in Healthcare have avoided this nightmare scenario by the use of patient identity tags (the wee wristband thingys put on patients on admission to hospital, on birth, on death etc). Ownership details are transcribed on to one of these robust vinyl items, which is then attached to the desired vessel through the handle, in a way which leaves its function unimpared and avoids ink contamination of the contents.
This practise appears to have spread throughout British Hospitals and is common to both NHS and Private establishments despite having no official promotion or recognition. (Presumably to avoid encouraging or condoning theft from the cash strapped NHS.) That there has never been a mouth ulcer or gingivitis epidemic reported amongst the staff of a major British hospital can surely be attributed to this technique. As, I'm sure, can the continued existence of the NHS, and the harmonious atmosphere enjoyed by all who work there.

We're replying to the e.mail from Julie hardcastle about the coloured biscuits from the seventies.
We also remember these biccies very well. They used to have a sticker with them, or a rice paper monster design on the biscuits themselves. they were definately monster themed. However (and its a big however!) I also for the life of me cannot remember the name of them!
There must be someone out there that does!
||Esteemed Mr Nicey,|
People lying on a table, with biscuits placed on and around them? And where else? There are special websites for people who get their kicks from that sort of thing. You have to be over 18, of course. Keep it decent, Mr Nicey! Please don't go any further than the navel, which is of course the place into which one sweeps one's crumbs afterwards.
Yours very respectfully,
A colleague informs me that when she went to Sorrento last year all the tea (and she sampled several pots in different establishments) tasted like fish. I have never been to Italy myself, but perhaps others have experienced this phenomenon while holidaying there?
Loving your work

||Dear Nicey and the Wife,|
A friend of mine recently persuaded me to attend a crystal healing session. This basically consists of lying flat on a table while crystals are placed at various strategic points on and around the body. I am not convinced of the healing properties of crystals and wondered whether using biscuits instead would make for a less intimidating experience.
I would suggest using digestives to "ground" the energies since these are practical, robust and (according to the original claims) have a beneficial effect on the digestive system.
I am given to understand that colour plays a major part in the process and therefore iced gems would be the obvious choice for opening the chakras.
Are there any "biscuit spiritualists" out there who can shed any more light on the subject?
