||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.
|Alice.T. and Miss.Cull
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.
Bahlsen Crumblys Review
|Your correspondent Jamie Lindsay will be delighted to learn that the elusive Crumbly's, complete with errant apostrophe, can be tracked down in Harts, Cullens, Crispins, Supafoods and Europa stores at various locations throughout London. They were on offer at 99p but I think that promotion may have finished now. |
