Malted Milk Review
|Dear Nicey - re Katy Rouths note |
I think I know what she's on about. One of my children is slightly dyslexic and we've tried all kinds of alternative remedy things suggested by teachers that are supposed to stimulate the brain - like foods containing fatty acids (sardines etc), drinking lots of water , listening to Mozart ,balancing
exercises etc - So if Katy has discovered that Malted Milk are a brain stimulant then this could be a fantastic educational breakthrough. You can see why one that played Mozart might be even better (but possibly not edible). I will try feeding my daughter Malted Milk biscuits for breakfast tomorrow as she's got a spelling test in school and see if there is any improvement. They will have to be Tesco's though as we had ASDA's last week and my youngest was traumatised by the missing calf.
PS Tea Bag bin doing as well as can be expected in office setting so long as someone remembers to empty it daily - Nasty Mould experience last week.
|Nicey replies: Very good, but its not a calf its just one slightly further away (shades of Father Ted here..).
Glad to hear the TeaBagBin is gainfully employed.

||Dear Nicey and Wifey|
The fame of NCOTAASD is spreading into the realm of literature. I've just read a fab book by Danny Wallace called Join Me, and I almost spilled my fairtrade Sri Lankan when I saw on page 12 the words "But what I want out of life is usually a nice cup of tea and a biscuit...." And there it is again on page 224! I hope you're not having to pay for all this publicity.

|Nicey replies: Yes tea and biscuit consciences is all about us, Hoorah!
Well done on the amusing surname, your middle name is quite unusual too.

I work as a teaching assistant in a special school and was introduced to your site by the teacher I work with. She had heard of your site, but as a computor-phobic had been unable to access it. I logged on and we have been unable to log off since. We have used much of your painstakingly collected data for graphs and bar charts in maths. Your games are used as rewards, and your pictures have at times caused uncontrollable giggles. My teacher and I are dedicated belivers in a nice cup of tea and a sit down (especialy when cake is involved). Thank you for making lesson planning so much fun.
Yours crumily Alice.T. and Miss.Cull
|Nicey replies: It must be a very special school indeed if the lessons are about biscuits, Hoorah!
You should take a look at my friend Gary's lovely Pictogram software, he has used some of our biscuits in the demo version.
Malted Milk Review
Seeing your thread on malted milk biscuits, and especially your correspondants comments about eating them at school, reminded me of a phrase we used to have at school: "Cow biscuits are the mother of invention". This piece of wisdom was discovered on a maths field trip, where we all ate malted milks to improve our mental performance - and they worked remarkably well. We even designed a malted milk biscuit which played Mozart, to enhance it's benefits even further.
So, just in case you feel in need of a mentally stimulating sit down, try a malted milk.
|Nicey replies: Katy,
That's a simply enchanting story despite the fact that I don't really know what you are going on about.
My first experience of a high-powered business meeting was a visit to a luxury car maker in Coventry. We were expecting walnut board room tables, and silver service. We were there 4 hours and all we got was one flimsy plastic cup of vending machine tea, from a machine next to the factory floor. It was almost exactly as you describe it in your special report, with the distinct aftertaste of full fat UHT milk.
Needless to say, I've never bought one of their cars after that experience. Couldn't afford it.
