Vote Bionic Books

So a while ago I mentioned a great new company who we were doing our accounts with, Bionic Books In short they are an online accountancy package for small businesses and they have been totally brilliant for us. Essentially they have enabled us to take full control of our accounts, with out having to pay a fortune or upload new software all the time. They have nice simple graphs to explain things like profit and loss and you can manage all your invoices and that sort of thing, and best of all at the end of the year you can simply print off your accounts!

So Bionic Books are growing and I recently saw an online poll for them so ladies and gentlemen please help out a great company who have helped us by going here and clicking on the vote thing!

Bread Matters

I attended a great workshop held by the bulmer foundation last night about bread making and why it's important. So what's it all about? In the words of the campiagn for real bread:

'Bread is a fundamental part of our diet – in the UK almost three quarters of us eat it every day.

So our bread should be an essential part of our diverse food culture, with skilled bakers being central to our local communities. Unfortunately, much of our daily bread is produced by a handful of industrial bakers using methods that have little regard for its nutritional qualities or the environmental impact of its production. Clever marketing tempts us with low prices or ‘healthier’ loaves laced with artificial additions. But almost all bread made today is based on similar, questionable ingredients and methods.'

Now if it all sounds a bit far fetched you should maybe find half an hour, make a cup of tea and sit down and watch this

You see it's really important, slow food is good food. Real bread is as simple as flour, water and salt, that's it. I guess another way of looking at all of this is if you haven't got the time to feed your family and yourself well then maybe your priotites are out of balance. So tonight why not turn off the tv and make some bread, by hand, share the making and share the eating.

Welsh Rugby Team on the Cabs!

So I wasn't about last weekend, but it turns out that on Saturday we had none other than Welsh internationals James Hook and Lee Byrne on the Pedicabs! Next time we'll have to get a photo of our own!

Maybe it's time for a 'As used by the Welsh Rugby Team sticker'..
