I love a good memo. They're one of the best things about working in an office (them and the fridge in the staff room where I can always find homemade sandwiches in a lunchbox that says Adam J on it - great for morning tea or second lunch or feeding the birds in the car park if I'm not that hungry).

...Uuuummm, did somebody just break a world record and create the world's first organic tonic water? Probably! I mean I've googled it and scrolled down the first page and nothing came up and then I went on Facebook. And yeah my one job was to confirm our world first title but there have been some fairly pointed hints that if I ever do contact the Guinness people again they're not only going to ...

Reinvention Test

August 18th, 2014 — DHMSCo News

When it comes to invention, I guess you could say I am kind of a maverick. Sometimes I don't even know I'm inventing something when I'm inventing it! Like the other day I was eating Wizz Fizz and some fell in my chocolate milk. I didn't even realise until I drank the milk and noticed it was way more delicious than usual and that I had created something really special practically from scratch...

I think I am a bit of a traditionalist. I love their sparkling mineral water, the original - served chilled with a dash of lime. I’ve been enjoying Mitch and Brylie’s waters for many years. The business has a great community feel. They have the right business ethos and, commendably, are taking on the large foreign operated drinks companies.

When we first opened Ladro over 10 years ago, we were accustomed to believing that imported French and Italian mineral waters were superior… if it was continental, it must be the best! We soon discovered this was an utter myth. We seriously have the best mineral water in the world and it’s on our proverbial doorstep, so why on earth would we buy imported bottles of water sent from half way acro...

Too tasty for this water

Not to brag, but I’ve always considered myself a bit of an “amateur physician.” I say amateur, but I’m actually much better than that. Except for a degree and a licence and actual paid work at a hospital or wherever, I’m pretty much a professional level lifesaving doctor. I first knew I would be a really good doctor who would never need training when I was nine and I treated myself for the chic...

Of course I know where babies come from

April 10th, 2013 — DHMSCo News

It doesn’t take a genius to know that something funny is going on around here. For one thing, everyone’s been ignoring me most of the time. Which is ridiculous since I’ve been doing business from the top of a pallet of cola in the exact centre of the warehouse for a week. And I’ve got this new laugh I’m doing where I cackle really loudly while I whip my hair all around super sexily (Adam taught...

Some like it hot

You could say I’m a bit of a rev head. Engines, motors, petrol, fuel, gas, cup holders – I’m a veritable Schumacher when it comes to knowing what cars are and what bits they have. I don’t actually own a car myself per-se, but if I did you just know it would be the best car ever, the top one that everybody wants and they see it and they’re all “oh man, look at that car with sixteen exhaust pipes...
