• The Tenuous Purpose

    This Blog is built - not, as some might expect, on a flimsy whim but on a strong and single minded principle.

    That principle concerns Biscuits and their position in the world.

    We are really very keen on biscuits.
    As are many of you out there.
    We think.

    We wish to create an archive of Arrowroot, a backlog of Bourbons and a catalogue of Chocolate Fingers. Anybody can contribute an entry - or dispute somebody else's - provided they are not dull.
    Even Americans who perhaps don't really have the heritage of biscuitry that we are fortunate to have here.

    Or maybe they do and we are unaware of the full glory of the cookie.

    We realise that this whole subject is admirably and concisely dealt with by that excellent and unbeatable website A Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down. Our feeble efforts will be as the kicking of a gadfly in the face of their wisdom and experience but we hope that we may have a small contribution to make.

  • The Synod of Biscuitry

    James Alexander-Sinclair of Blackpitts
    Gardener, Blogger, Journalist, Lecturer etc, etc. Much of his life is spent loafing around other people’s gardens issuing directives and generally cluttering up the place. However, like the great Mr Kipling, he does (occasionally) make exceptionally good gardens. (Although even Mr Kipling messed up a bit with the Carrot and Walnut Mini Classics.)

    Mark Diacono of Otter Farm
    He does sterling work growing many inappropriate plants in Devon. He dedicates a great deal of time and effort nurturing a plethora of plants that are (mostly) totally unsuited to our climate. His is a life of such extreme eccentric dedication that to start a Blog about Biscuits seems perfectly normal. He treads gently in the footsteps of people like the great William Buckland,a professor of Geology who claimed that he could tell location by tasting the local topsoil.

Universal Serial Biscuit

Real biscuits are all well and good but what do you do when you’re sitting at the computer and realise that you have run out (again) and there is not a single shortbread left in the house or shed?

Worry no more, because here is the USB biscuit Flash Drive .usbzone_usb_biscuit_round

As the sales bumph underlines, it’s not only portable and simple to operate, it is so real you might mistake it for the real thing.

Available for both PC and Mac folk, the round version weighs in at a hefty 24g, while the rectangular model is a lithe 22g.

  1. That would be torture – why would I want a pretend biscuit sticking out of my PC making me feel hungry all day??

  2. I used to have a key ring shaped like a Bourbon Biscuit.
    Indeed, now I come to think of it, I also had a rubber biscuit which I used to put on a plate amongst real biscuits in the hope than an unsuspecting adult would bite into it with hilarious results.
    Just like Roger the Dodger in the Beano (comic characters is another subject for another Blog, another time).
    It never worked.

  3. To continue my pink wafer obsession, I happened to stumble upon this item of jewellery last night:
    I would imagine small children would lunge for your neck in a disconcerting way if you were to wear one.
