Ernie – The Fastest Organic Milkman In The West Returns…

milkman

Not quite Benny Hill but Ernie The Fastest Organic Milkman In The West makes a return  as all that’s old seems to be the new-new!

Delivering organic milk to customers’ doors in glass milk bottles, is coming back as the Manhattan Milk Company is reviving old-fashioned dairy delivery.

For a $5 delivery charge, Manhattanites can get a weekly delivery of fresh milk. The company’s driver loads up his truck on Wednesdays at 4 am and delivers to all of Manhattan, picking up empty bottles when he drops off the full ones. The milk is sourced from 51 Amish farms in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, about 160 miles southwest of New York City.

Maybe we will see this regeneration grow combining dairy delivery with locally supported agriculture ventures that deliver organic fruit and veg from farms to households across the world – with eco delivery systems?

Think about it convenience, charm, organic and local all combined with green credentials!!

The Man With 86 Wives… Must Divorce 82…

86wives

Just spotted this on BBC site although its a bit of an old story thought it was some mean feet :- a Nigerian man who has 86 wives has been ordered under an Islamic law to divorce 82 of them, or face death.

Mr Abubakar 84 had challenged Islamic scholars, saying there was no punishment stated in the Koran for having more than four wives.

He argued that being forced to leave his wives would cause undue hardship: “All my wives are with children and some of these are people I have married and stayed with for over 30 years. How can they expect me to leave them within two days?”

At last count, Mr Abubakar was said to have somewhere over 170 children.

Just think of the amount he would have had to pay out if he was in the west in alimony plus brings a whole new meaning to Desperate Housewives 🙂

Flying Dutchman Steve McClaren…

Oh my goodness what is Steve McClaren upto here he has taken on a whole new level of cringeworthy awfulness with a performance that would make even David Brent blush.

The clip is from a Dutch TV interview talking about his new side FC Twente and their pending match against Arsenal.

He has only been in the job since June but he seems to have already mastered the language “is big news now in English media”.

🙂

(Ps Is that a Psychiatric Hospital in the background I’m sure I saw somebody in a white coat; maybe that explains everything)

Employee Celebrates Birthday at Burger King in Sink…

This is definitely not the kind of publicity Burger King needs it shows an employee celebrating his birthday by taking a bath in the washing up sink of a local Burger King restaurant in Ohio.

He is seen in a bubble bath pouring water over himself with a sanitizing solution bucket. The video taper actually reported the incident to the manager who ignored the whole thing and continued to count cash.

Burger King has taken swift action to get rid of all the contaminated articles and dealt with the employees involved in the video.

The remaining staff have been given appropriate health and sanitation training 🙂

Birmingham City Council Recycle Gaff..

article-1044201-024322dd00000578-380_468x326

Following on from yesterday’s article about Sussex police I came across this story which did not quite work out as Birmingham city council had planned.

There are two problems first of all a 720,000 pamphlets celebrating Birmingham’s recycling success were printed out with a picture of the city’s skyline –

First problem; the photo they used was of Birmingham, Alabama – more than 4,000 miles away in the U.S so instead of seeing landmarks such as the Rotunda they were replaced by U.S. office blocks.

Second problem why print 720,000 leaflets to celebrate recycling success surely there is something wrong both environmentally and financially as it cost taxpayers £16,000 !!!
