The New Boom in the Food Industry

Pacific Paratrooper

Food has often been an important part of warfare. What is less known is how food developed for warfare changed people’s lives after the war. The most important development happened after World War II, though the canning process has been around for a long time.

Canned food started by using tin cans to preserve various items in the early 19th century. British sailors and explorers found that canned food was a relatively easy way to supplement their rations. For example, the Arctic explorer William Parry took canned beef and pea soup on his voyage. By the middle of the 19th century many of the middle class in Europe bought canned food as novelty items.

Anticipated October 2019 Releases

Confessions of a YA Reader

Fall is my favorite season, so I’m happy to see that October is so close.  It’s still a fairly big release month, but then it slows down quite a bit in November.  Maybe we’ll all be able to catch up (probably not).

As always, I can’t post all releases, so I just try to find ones that I’m excited for or ones I think others will be excited for.   You’ll notice that I didn’t pre-order much this month.  September was bad and we have some bigger expenses in October.  But I will be buying some of these that I haven’t ordered yet.   All dates taken from Goodreads.

Wood Create

When we moved into our new house back in 2014 the previous owners had recently refurbished and fitted a new kitchen.  So I thought great, one less job to do… But Victoria had other ideas.  Didn’t like the floor, the tiles or the worktops!

So it wasn’t long before I had my orders to make it look light, bright and white. Everything in my house seems to be turning white these days.

I’d never fitted a kitchen before but was well up for the challenge. First things first was to choose the worktops, sink, tap and tiles. Easy, I just let Victoria loose on eBay and soon enough we had some lovely solid oak worktops, tall brushed steel mixer tap, white ceramic double sink, white tiles and grout.

Luckily we were able to save some money as Victoria was happy with the kitchen units – phew!  I’m sure she’d rather white and wood…
