Mutterings continued.

Went looking for Fruit Tingles the other day and was shocked and dismayed to see that, a. they're not Allen's Fruit Tingles anymore, they're Wonkas! and b. they're made in New Zealand, and c. they're made by Nestles. When did this happen and why didn't anyone tell me? On a similar note, when did Weston's Wagon Wheels become so titchy? And why don't 'they' make Dutch cakes any more?

I think I've confused Blackstar. The Cadfael series 1 box was broken when I received it - the disks themselves are fine but the plastic holder thingie that holds disk 1 is broken off and falls out. I emailed Blackstar and asked if they could send me another box, not the disks, just the box. They issued me with a return number and an address to send the box back to. I emailed them and said that I wanted to keep the disks, I was just wondering if they could send a spare box. I've now received an email saying that my order for Cadfael 1 is being packed. Not sure what this means but I could end up with TWO sets. Blackstar are very good with their customer service - I ordered two copies of a dvd in error and they had no issue with me sending one back. They refunded the money, no questions asked.

From Ananova:
"Bull finds way to dead owner's grave

A bull that pined for its owner has been led away from his grave after a vigil lasting a number of days.

Barnaby the bull left his field in the German town of Roedental and found his way to the cemetery where owner Alfred Gruenemeyer was buried.

The eccentric farmer is said to have treated his animals likes pets, allowing several to have the run of his home.

The bull found his way one mile to cemetery and then jumped a wall before locating his owner's grave. He stayed there for two days despite numerous efforts to coax him away.

Vets said it was common for dogs to pine for their lost owners, but they had never heard of a bull doing so.

"It shows an acute level of intelligence. It seems incredible that a bull could find the exact spot where his master was buried, but he did it," said Klaus Mueller."
