Jamie's School Dinners

So in my previous post I was craving British food, but what kind was I craving is the problem! I just watched Jamie Oliver's School Dinners as I love the show. I am so happy to see school dinners changing. I don't remember eating hamburgers, chips, baked beans, fish fingers or chicken nuggets when I was in Lady Margaret where I attended both elementary and middle school, however once I moved to Greenford High School things changed.

Only once did I ever go to the canteen and saw exactly what Jamie has been trying to ban from the school canteen. I used to eat outside of school but the food that I ate was no better. My friends and I would choose as to which one of our local chippies we should visit, the choices were, soggy, crispy or the other place that served burgers - our favourite was the soggy chips, they took the malt vinegar really well, so our bags of chips were absolutely drenched! Sometimes we opted for sandwiches that a local supermarket made in their little deli, but again the meat was all processed or I would go for my favourite Pot Noodles, chicken and mushroom flavour, an even better choice! Later close to finishing up our A levels a pizza place opened up right outside of the school gates, cause we were the older kids we were allowed out earlier and managed to beat the huge ques that would constantly be there with kids racing against each other to first.

I didn't realize until watching the TV show how bad the food got. That was my high school but to see the younger kids eating that was really upsetting. I know that the typical diet for quite a large number of Brits consist of baked beans with some processed meat which reminds me of the Monty Python sketch "I Don't Like Spam!" one of my all time favourites!!!

I live in a country were the younger children go home for lunch but high school kids stay at school to eat or may go to some fast food restaurants outside of school. The school meals are pretty healthy and quite well balanced and some restaurants outside of school is equally the same. But many kids choose junk food just like any other country. There's a lot of food on the street like "deok bokki" rice cake cooked in a fiery red sauce with cabbage or the various types of fried chicken or chicken on a stick.

Anyway I will try and cut out my cola...Wish me luck! In the meantime check out the site for Jamie's School Dinners and click on the animation it's really well made.

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
