Thoughts from November 2007

i'm feline fine

Emma sent in us this video of her aptly named cat called Fish. She rescued Fish, a red point Siamese, from Battersea Dogs Home. There's probably a joke in there about a fish being out of water, but swiftly moving on, young Fish is a huge fan of our pineapples, bananas and coconuts smoothie, and insists on sharing a bottle with Emma. Watch the video for his clever paw-bottle move.

one hundred thousand trees


We broke through our 100,000 trees Buy One Get One Tree target yesterday. Woo hoo. That's over 200 football pitches worth of trees and means we can support all of the planned community tree planting schemes in Africa and India.

Joanne and Gavin were the one-hundredth thousand registrants at around mid-day on Wednesday 14th November 2007. Thanks Joanne and Gavin, we'll try and rustle up a little something for you to commemorate the occasion.

And thank you to everyone else who's registered a tree so far. As the project has been so successful we are going to extend the deadline up until December 10th, so every tree over the original 100,000 will also be planted and cared for in India or Africa.

This is the first time we've run a project like this on this scale and as it has gone so well we are thinking about doing it again next year. To make it even better we'd love to hear what you think of the project and any suggestions might you have to improve it?

Downloadable certificates for each tree planted?

Badges for your FaceBook/ MySpace/ Bebo profiles?

More room to add longer messages to each tree?

More information on the communities the trees are going to?

We're open to any idea or suggestion, please leave your comments on this blog post.

austria, with desks

Those of you who have too much time on your hands will be aware of the fact that furniture is hard to come by in our new Austrian office.


We are sure that you will join us in heaving a huge sigh of relief upon learning that Franz now has a desk. Admittedly, he now needs to put it in the office and stop weightlifting with it in the back garden, but it's a start.

Some of our most manly menfolk are growing moustaches for Movember.


This is how they looked before stubble took over their upper lip areas. We'll post pictures of the 'taches very soon...
