Update – Still Not Eating Seafood, Others have Joined

April, the forth month of the year. For this year I vowed not to eat seafood, in this post -

Fish? No Thanks! My 2014 New Year Resolution

 - So far I have completed a quarter of the year sucessfully!! I have not eaten a single morsel of ocean flesh. 

I know that my own resolution may not save the planet or its blue, blue seas, however, I have had more success that I thought. Members of my family have joined me in my quest. 


Why every Blogger should Have Pinterest

How to Food Blog & Food Blogging Tips 


Pinterest is not only an amazing marketing tool for your blog and a fun way to keep up to date with what others like you are doing – it also has surprising benefits. I was invited to a Bread Making Class, simple because I love to pin food pins. Check out my Pinterest Profile.

The Bread Making Class was at Loaf, Bournville Birmingham, UK. It was a class on making Sour-dough, conducted by Tom Baker, the baker at Loaf. 

I was one of 20 lucky people who got invited to the foodie event. Pinterest hand picked foodie pinners who showed their love for food.

BLT-Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

The B.L.T. !!! Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich.

BLTIn protest of all those soggy, sad sandwiches sitting on cold refrigerated supermarket shelves in plastic triangles, this is February’s Worship your Sandwich Edition.

<Warning!> Only for the brave of heart. 

Smoked Back Bacon on crunchy toasted seedy brown bread, with mustard tinted mayo, soft lettuce leaves freshly cut from the plant, juicy tomato slices and creamy avocado. Please, stop drooling. 

No sir, there is no room for any pale white watery iceberg lettuce round these here parts. Make sure you have overly ripe toms and ready to eat avocado. Choose your favourite bacon, streaky or back, smoked or non-smoked, up to you.

There may be no particular need to know any code for creating a website these days, however, my best advice is learn some code anyway. It is truly a great skill and such a valuable one for a web site owner. More
