  • Welsh Dragon Sausages

    Ok now how many of you would actually think that Welsh Dragon Sausages would actually contain dragon meat?

    It seems that the UK trading standards are worried that there could be confusion ...

    DRAGON SAUSAGE FOOD FARCE

    Nov 18 2006

    Mike Jones, Western Mail


    A Welsh food firm last night hit out at bizarre rules that have forced it to explain that its 'dragon sausages' do not really contain dragons.

    The company has been warned it could face legal action for misleading people that it uses dragon meat in its fiery sausages.

    Trading standards chiefs are forcing the meat firm, Black Mountains Smokery, to include the word 'pork' on its labels for their Welsh Dragon Sausages, even though pork is already included on the list of ingredients - and dragons are obviously mythical.

    The clampdown to satisfy the Government's Food Labelling Regulations was yesterday criticised by the Black Mountains Smokery boss.

    Jon Carthew said the sausages had fallen foul of bureaucracy. 'I don't think any of our customers actually believe that we use dragon meat in our sausages,' he said. 'We use the word because the dragon is synonymous with Wales and I think everyone who buys from us knows that.'

    It's a bit like the film "Addams Family Values". Pugsley and Wednesday set up a lemonade stand where they encounter a Girl Guide selling Girl Guide Cookies, who asks if the lemonade is made from real lemons, whereupon comes the rejoinder, "Are they [the cookies] made from real Girl Scouts ?"

      I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

      I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
      Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

      One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

      I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

      Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.
