Back Soon

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks
Almost as soon as it has begun, the Quibble Blog is to take a one week hiatus, while I travel around the world, visiting Greece, The Grenadines, Guatemala, Guam and Glossop.

Actually, only one of those places is true, but please come back in a week or so's time for more mea culpa and Who? Me?

Eggshaped.

In the series six show on Fakes and Frauds, there was an interesting story of Faked Raspberry Jam containing hand made wooden pips. As a kid my grandad always told his grandchildren that he once had a job carving wooden pips for raspberry jam and until seeing the show, I was convinced that he was pulling our legs. Looks like he had the last laugh.

Greece Is officially the Hellenic Republic now-a-days, Guatemala Is the Republic of Guatemala, Guam Is the Territory of Guam, and Glossop is just a name for a collection of villages that used to be called Glossopdale (I live near glossop so I know =P). But then again the Grenadines are technically just a term for the island chain called the Grenades. So to the extent of a 16yr olds knowledge, I am confused.

Whereas your points are valid, sometimes we eschew exactitude in deference to style... The post wouldn't have been as entertaining without the alliteration !
