At the weekend I saw an advert on TV while visiting my mothers which was very familiar and so I sought it out to share. The following is the new advert for Mikado chocolate biscuit sticks:

However here is the dutch advert for ‘AA paper’ which is suspiciously identical and predates the Mikado advert on UK television:

A shame that the advertising company didn’t check that their advert was original… It seems ‘AA paper’ do know how to make original adverts:

I was rather disturbed by reports that a hotel in Surrey, the Metro Hotel, had refused a soldier on leave a room. Apprently it was because in the local area other soldiers had caused problems. I remember when certain pubs and clubs in Dover would refuse entry to soldiers, but that was groups of drunk soldiers tearing up the place. A wounded soldier on leave visiting a friend in a rehabilitation facility is hardly the same thing!

Shame on them. However a recent B&B I visited apparently gives a discount to soldiers on leave! So there you go buys and girls, a nice little relaxing eco-B&B in the middle of nowhere to chill out in. Take a look at The Old Chapel Forge B&B for a soldier friendly place to stay.
