Well perhaps it’s not strictly daytime TV, I’ve got no idea what time of day the Arlene Francis “Home” show was broadcast on NBC in 1956. I’m sure if I was a decent blogger I’d go and research such facts, but I’m loose like that…
This is not a mix featuring Christmassy tracks. It just so happens that I’ve got round to finishing it a week before Christmas. Also, they say that Christmas is a time for miracles, and the fact I’ve finished this at all is a miracle. Our two bundles of joy aren’t exactly mix-friendly, yet. It’s a bit all-over-the-place, but so am I.
Have a great Christmas and New Year! xxx

For TGI Friday by the Viral Factory. Personally I’m a little bit over this kind of ‘amazing trick’ video. But screw me. I’m not the target audience for this video. And there’s one thing that the Viral Factory guys normally get right, it’s that the videos they make get people talking – this time it’s the fake vs. not fake banter on YouTube that’s priceless…
It’s Poke Hack Day. And we’re doing something that’s close to my heart. It’s about ending sub-standard cappuccino. Too often we get fobbed off with lattes in cappuccino’s clothing. Big, heavy, milky coffee. Made with burned milk. Basically a terrible drink and piss-poor start to the day.
We want people to respect the ‘golden ratio’ – 1 part espresso, 1 part steamed milk, 1 part foam.
Part education and campaigning website. Part social tool – http://www.thatsacappuccino.com (not live yet) – will help to raise the cappuccino bar for all of us.
JD Weatherspoon (who are responsible for 6% of the UK’s coffee sales)
And of course, The Wild Bean Cafe
We’re asking them to get on board with us and operationally ensure that they’re respecting the difference between a latte and a cappuccino.
Today’s preliminary investigation and interviews have unearthed a whole bunch of interesting stuff – like more than a few places that basically think a cappuccino is a latte with chocolate on top (and they’ve admitted to that on camera).
Do you know of any places that get the cappuccino perfectly right? Or criminally wrong. Please leave details below and we’ll make sure they feature in the beta of the app :-)
