I did a course on Amos once. Rather suspect Helegant did too.

All the minor prophets are good, and the bold are short enough to read all the way through. You may be surprised how much 'we'll known' stuff is in there. Micah gives us this for example, which I suspect many know and few can source:

"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting". (Micah 2:2)

Oh, I know Micah... But know him individually not grouped him with Amos - my bible knowledge is clearly lacking.

Dear Mr Potts,

I wanted to write to you following a number of reports in the media over the past few days about Waitrose frozen beef burgers being withdrawn from sale. It can be alarming to see stories like this hitting the headlines and so I wanted to ensure that you have full details about the current situation.

The frozen burgers are produced on our behalf by a company called Dalepak. They are made to an exacting specification using high quality British beef, from farmers we know and trust.

The Waitrose technical team have visited Dalepak and after a thorough review, reported that the burgers were produced to our high specification and separately from other companies products. As a further precaution, the ingredients were sent for testing and this showed that our burgers contained only 100% beef.

So why did we feel it necessary to withdraw the burgers? Last week the British Retail Consortium took the decision to temporarily suspend their accreditation of the Dalepak site and as a result, we took the frozen burgers off sale. The BRC have now reinstated the accreditation and as a result of this, Waitrose frozen burgers are now back on sale.

I realise this is a rather long letter, and thank you for your time reading it, but I wanted you to know as a very valued customer that you can always rely on Waitrose quality. As you are probably aware, whether it be in fresh, frozen or in a ready meal, Waitrose use the same high quality British beef from farmers we know and trust.

Should you have any more queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at 0800 188884

Yours sincerely

Mark Price
Managing Director, Waitrose Ltd

I sent a letter to Nabisco once. I wanted to know what it was that held Weetabix biscuits together.

I was a bit worried it might have petro-chemical origins - like something Union Carbide would produce. My fears were unfounded.

Got something to say?

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
