Few know my grandfather, John Jenkins FRSC, was the inventor of numerous front line confectionery wonders of CHOCOLATE….such as being the inventor in Watford’s Yeatman’s factory, before bought out by Fry’s chocolate , later Cadburys and now ‘orrible american sugared chewing gum’.
Cadbury’s Milk Flake, Chocolate Buttons, Sunny Spread and Jiffy Jellies are but a fraction Grandma Morgan’s husband dreamed up in his little laboratory during and after World War11.
I was lost for hours, at 6 years of age, in Grandpa’s chocolate factory and eventually found with both arms in a giant Kenwood mixer full of warm liquid chocolate (an amusing story on http://www.kirkflyingvet.com relaunch very shortly).
From there on in I was hooked on chocolate so if Mum had not severely spanked me that time, when I was caught pinching chocolate from her shopping bag, I would have been a much greater problem for any corrupt authority’ crossing me.
It has become abundantly clear, over my twenty five years here, that to beat the welsh court system one must first climb down into the gutter and join them and accept there are no queensbury rules equivalent and being a crook sure helps.
Continuing the ‘need arguement,’ to punish children with severe spanking, sometimes, must not be confused with my post chocolate factory experiences at the older age of eleven as a border at Taunton School’s Loveday House and vividly remember the blood trickling down my buttocks after a variation to Test Match use of pieces of wood when metered out by one or two of the prefects……[look out for http://www.kirkflyingvet.com re launch].
