Kokos Flocken

Anyone got any idea where I can buy Berggold Kokos Flocken in the UK? We bought some in Rostock and they’re addictive – waaaay better than Bounty or other chocolate-covered coconut things I’ve had.


Linked?

I can’t decide if LinkedIn is useful or not. I was introduced to it about a year ago by my lawyer who has lots of connections to colleagues and clients on his profile. But I’ve yet to discover anyone that I know from my own industry that uses it.

The trouble is, I’m not sure that the point of LinkedIn is to find people that you already know. Finding people you don’t know and being found by others have to be the two biggest advantages that it might have. But it would help to achieve a more credible appearance on LinkedIn if, by knowing a few people already, you could establish a network of connections and not look like a sad loner with just one linked profile.

Do you use LinkedIn? Do you think it is useful? You’ll find me if you search for my real name and know what I do for a living (I’m not linked as Graybo and nor is this blog linked).


The other half of the story?

You will have seen the media coverage of the Silver Ring Thing case currently in the High Court. The Ministry of Truth looks a little deeper and finds that it may not all be as certain sections of the media have portrayed it.

I am quite content to keep my child as far away from all forms of religion as is possible, at least until he has developed some critical analysis skills and can make up his own mind. I’m increasingly convinced the religious organisations, particularly those of an Evangelical nature, are just as scheming and devious as politicians.
