I first read this over at Cambridge Lady's blog, its a bit of sad news for everyone, especially those of us who are chocolate addicts. It seems that the Karft Company in America is taking over Cadbury's in the UK, read about it here Now why that should upset the chocolate addicts amongst us, is that its a well known fact that all American chocolate tastes like cheap cooking chocolate (sorry but its true you guys), so if they play around with the formula or even worse make the chocolate bars in the States and ship them back to the UK all will not be good.
If I am buying imported chocolate it has to be made in the UK. There is a difference between the taste of Cadbury's chocolate made in Canada and made in the UK, and the UK winds hands down. It is one thing I do believe that the UK does better than us North Americans, and that is make half decent chocolate. I was talking to a guy who works in a chocolate factory and he was saying that they have brought out Dove chocolate over here based on British chocolate, as its a lot creamier than the American rubbish. Again not a huge fan of Dove chocolate, but won't say no to it.
Now on a more serious note with this, as per the news release the people are worried about losing their jobs in Britain as Kraft is known for cutting jobs and saving costs, so need to be aware of that as well......still worried about how my beloved Cadburys chocolate will taste though?
I was watching Breakfast Television on Tuesday morning, while I was doing my ironing and this week they are featuring You Tube videos of local people and they featured this lady, who has a spectacular voice. I can see big things for this lady, where are you Simon Cowell!!
On Tuesday while I was taking the garbage bin out of under the sink, the phone rang. So I left the garbage bag in the middle of the kitchen and went to answer the phone. Stood talking on the phone for ages in teh family room, and heard Molly pottering around in the kitchen. She had got into the garbage and I had, had soup for my lunch on Monday and it come in a bag, so Molly was licking out the bag, and it resulted in Molly having an orange face!!

Today's Money Saving Tip:
For organic weed control, use regular black and white newspaper, 5 sheets or so thick, and lay it over the garden and then dampen with a hose. The paper will break down and add organic material to our clay soils that will make it easier to dig in as well as a happier place for the plants to grow. You can start a garden with this same theory by just weed eating the grass down to almost nothing and laying the paper over top of the freshly "wacked" area, wetting and then cutting a hole in the paper to plant!
