bargain foods

London

I got an email with the address outlookwemail@outlook.com

(it shows what a fake address it was because my laptop refuse to create a link on the whole address but insists on just highlighting the email@outlook.combination ) don’t click on the link for heaven’s sake as it is a fake and a scam address.

Telling me to update my account with hotmail or it will be deactivated in 24hrs.

It looked very convincing, except I am always sceptical when it goes into my junk mail folder instead of into my inbox.

If it is a legit email from hotmail, it should land in my inbox folder.

I am using windows live mail.
I don’t know if it is still operative or they intend to replace it with outlook.com;
microsoft keep changing the names of these things all the time, so I am not sure if they intend to replace hotmail.com with outlook.com

Anyway I copied and pasted the message and send it to the outlook.com feedback section which I opened… not via the link in the email but by typing it in my laptop’s whatisname… we shall see what happens if anything.

Though I doubt they will reply to me as I have not got an outlook.com account haha.
The puzzling thing is when I log onto my hotmail.com , it tells me it is called outlook now.

And I did not tell them my email address in my feedback message to them. I actually put it down, but erased it when I read a statement in the webpage saying don’t put anything personal on it.

Idiots really, one wonders why they want feedback from strangers.

That is why I use google chrome instead of explorer. With chrome I don’t ever get messages saying shut down your computer so that whatever program can be updated.

I still use hotmail, because I am so used to it.
So far they allow me to access both my hotmail accounts using windows live. So I don’t have to log on individually into my two hotmail accounts. The windows live log on automatically and grabs any messages in both the accounts at regular intervals.
They don’t allow u anymore to automatically log on from one account to another.

I suppose the day they close down windows live will be the day I move elsewhere. I don’t mean get rid of my hotmail address, but get another program that will do similar function.
I am sure there are other programs similar to it, a kind of gatherer of all your email addresses in one place.

I have been having a lot of fun buying bargain veg and meat.
First off I go to Brixton for the 50p garlic, ginger, tomatoes, onions.

Then to aldi to get their reduced price lettuce .49p , cucumber .49p. They also have 4cloves of garlic for .49p but I did not buy those.
If u fancy English strawberries, aldi is selling them 400mg for £1.39. A good price. I did not buy them though.
I got cooked frozen prawns200mg for £2.

Though I have become less enthusiastic about frozen prawns as it seems to have so much ice in them.

I enjoy the bus rides which I get to do free as I move from one supermarket to another.

Even rode on the 24 service, which is all new open platform at the back of the bus, like the old route masters. They have a conductor there just to remind u to pay which I think is a waste of a conductor really. Someone told me they are drivers and they alternate with each other to play the conductor role.

I think come winter they will shut off the open platform at the back and do without a conductor and revert to an ordinary one -man operation.

This open platform is for tourists really, and so will operate in summer for the benefit of the tourists.

I find the ride is very rough , if u sit upstairs. Some how there is more rolling and rocking upstairs than in the ordinary double deckers. Not suitable for you if u get car sick easily. Haha.

Later the night I went to sainsburys to get bread. Now they are reduced to 34p . I wonder if I shall ever see them reduced to 10p each. Those were the days. Haha. I saw a guy there taking the Crank brand wholemeal loaves, and got chatting to him. I spotted more of the loaves which he missed on the shelf and pointed them out to him, and he took all of them, with me taking one for myself. He said he loved them and considered them cheap at 34p. I told him it used to be had for 10p each. I noticed the milk powder is now back to its old price £1.01 glad they have decided to drop it from the £1.40 it rose to. 

 

Then at the Tesco I saw a big 2.2kg unsmoked Wiltshire gammon ham for £2.59 , reduced from £10 something. It is bacon. I intend to freeze it and eat it over a period. It is lovely to have bacon and eggs now and then.

Life is lovely. And tonight for some reason, there is no pollen in the air. I really wonder why… perhaps it was a still night, so no wind to blow pollen from the fields outside London into the centre of London. Or somewhere there was rain and it washed the pollen before the wind arrived here. So I came back without sneezing and snorting… haha.

I caught a tv program called unwrapped food… and it was talking of cornflakes, with added iron. It seems during the process of making the cornflakes they strip the maize of its kernel where all the goodness are,(because the oil in the kernel makes the flakes go rancid very quick and so cannot be stored for long) and then they add iron filings to it. What a laugh. Basically u are eating iron filings, which will most probably run right through your gut and never get absorbed and u shit it out. So much for your daily dose of iron.

Sometimes I think we are too gullible and believe whatever these people who make our processed foods tells us. First they strip the food of its natural goodness and then they add these man -made chemicals masquerading as vitamins etc and tells us it is the same thing. Rubbish of course, no way is iron in spinach or liver, or beef the same as the iron filings they add in. or the naturally occurring vitamin C in fruits is only ascorbic acid. I daresay the difference is the ease of absorption by the body of naturally occurring iron,vitamins, etc in these foodstuffs.

And guess what, it does not surprise me to hear that processed cheese, the ones in flat squares, may contain only 10%cheese. What a laugh. Now u know why people keep telling u don’t eat processed foods.
