EDIT: It appears it has been in the news earlier this year. It was Picture of the Day in the Telegraph back in February. I'm still quite excited about *my* first "find" though.

So imagine my delight when I was invited (with the family) to be part of The Blackpool Tower launch on 1st September 2011. We were guests of Merlin Entertainment and we would be first to see all the new attractions.

As parents we know that many drinks and sweets are high in acid and sugar and can cause extensive damage to young teeth. I've been asked to share information with you that could protect your children’s teeth continuously from the word go (potentially saying goodbye to fillings for life) - Biorepair.
Dr. Girk Baytug, a dentist for over twenty years, explains in the video below about the results of a recent study which tested two repairing toothpastes - one being BioRepair - on their ability to repair enamel erosion caused by a soft drink, which showed that BioRepair provides continuous protection against multiple acid attacks throughout the day, keeping little teeth healthy and protected!

first trip to French shores when I was 11? It wasn't all bad as I discovered Orangina in a big way. It seemed very European to be drinking the slightly pithy, slightly sparkling orange juice straight out of the bottle (we were told it was the only way to drink it). We also brought a couple of those bulb-shaped bottles home as souvenirs too as no-one we knew had ever had Orangina before. That was 28 years ago (yes, I'm showing my age now).
Orangina have teamed up with chef Jean Christophe Novelli to revitalise a classic recipe. Duck à l'Orangina c'est magnifique and you can find out exactly how magnifique the collaboration is by visiting their Facebook page.
Here's Jean Christophe Novelli cooking the recipe for you and the full recipe is below:
