In 1885 I wrote a little ditty about my “Celebrated” Mint Rock and I believe that it still is very much true to this day so I have reproduced it for you: The many compounds which have been manufactured by various persons, and palmed upon the public as “Mint Rock,” and thus, by the adoption … Continue reading My Celebrated Mint Rock
On the day of Mr Darwin’s birth 209 years on I remember the jolly chap causing a hullaballoo with his new book. I read in many a newspaper of his rambunctious stories and tales of how we, and many creatures, may have come about. How contrary some of the clergy fellows are becoming in their … Continue reading On the Origin of Species

It was on reading this that I decided that it was a fitting tribute to a great writer to then write something myself about his works. I remember my Father coming … Continue reading Mr Dickens
As I sit at my desk, fountain pen in hand, pondering my ability to write a meaningful address for the year ahead without writing in the tone of a podsnapper I have looked back upon my past “Annual Addresses” for inspiration. In reading my address from 1886 I realised how similar it was to what … Continue reading Yuletide greeting to you all!!
I must apologise for the tardiness of this missive, for it has been some time since I last penned what I believe is called a “blog”. I have been very much distracted by the Benjo caused by the exceptional games of the 31st Olympiad in Brazil. The past few weeks have reminded me greatly of the … Continue reading The Olympic Feeling
People often remark to me on how delicious my confections are and ask how I make them so.
