Now that we have introduced the Forums and Groups system on this site, we are starting to see a lot of Spammers coming on here and leaving their advertisements for lots of various interesting products which, unfortunately, are not in the slightest related to our company.
Owing to this, I have decided to restrict membership so that I have to approve any applications before you can start leaving comments, joining groups, chatting, or making use of our forums. As I am on here most of the time, I don’t see that this will cause any problems to anyone, as acceptance will be pretty quick for all genuine requests.
Those of you who are already members might like to join some of the groups and leave messages, or even chat with us in the chat room. I hope to see more of you joining in shortly.
I have started making a point of going out at the weekends with my camera in readiness for the PomPrint 2013 calendar as last year all the photos were taken in the September week that was our Indian Summer of 2011. It is from these sessions that I am also drawing shots for our weekly location quiz (which is still open for entry).
Unfortunately, the rain has been following me around yesterday and today with the result being that I am now struggling to get a new location shot for next week. Never mind, I’m sure that I’ll get a chance some time before Friday!
The shot below was taken this morning and shows the kind of weather that has been following me around the north east of Scotland!! Please click on image for full size view.

Some of you may have noticed that I had removed my posting featuring the video performances of two of the schools that we support in the Rock Challenge event. This was due to the fact that I was questioned about breach of the owner’s copyright.
Fortunately, I have now been given the green light by the owner to re-embed these videos, so they have been reinstated. I would like to thank all the staff at the Be Your Best Foundation for them supporting me in this matter, and I look forward to be able to continue supporting the event and keeping you all informed when it starts again in January 2013.
When it comes to copyright, it pays to be honest, and I like to think that our company will continue to operate within the complicated copyright laws….until everyone embraces Creative Commons Licensing of course!!
The Rosehearty Observation Tower – last week’s unsolved location puzzler.
Unfortunately it would appear that I made last week’s puzzler a bit too difficult. Nobody at all managed to recognise the old Observation Tower in Rosehearty…so I have decided to make this week’s puzzle a bit easier, especially as I believe that we might get a few entries from members further afield (at least I hope so)!
This week I have chosen a location that should be well known to locals, but a bit more difficult for anyone outside the northeast of Scotland. All that you need to do to enter is to identify where the photo below was taken and comment this post with “This weeks location shot was taken in …..” followed by the village, town or city in which you believe the item can be seen. It’s so simple, we don’t even give you a prize, but you will at least have the smug feeling knowing that you got it right!
All correct answers will be revealed on Wednesday around noon.
The Rock Challenge final was in Milton Keynes this year, but that is not the only town that can boast a concrete cow!! Where would you find this fine beast in Scotland?
Best of luck, especially to those of you who live outside our area!! Happy googling.
PomPrint Designs Ltd are looking to recruit a Materials Controller to work in their Mintlaw based facility starting mid August 2012. The successful candidate will be responsible for the movement of goods both in and out of the plant, and the allocation of materials to the appropriate working areas, along with expediting purchase orders from suppliers.
Applicants are required to be physically fit with good communication skills and have a presentable appearance, as the job involves interaction with the public. Other requirements are proven school qualifications in both Mathematics and English Language. A test for colour blindness must also be passed by the successful candidate.
Previous experience in materials control, a proven organizational ability, computer literacy and a clean driving license would all be advantageous, but are not a requirement.
Working hours will be 37 ½ per week from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday with ½ hour for lunch. The initial rate of pay will be £7.00 per hour for the first 3 months and then align with standard company pay rates after completion of a successful probationary period.
To apply, please send CV with covering letter to PomPrint Designs Ltd., Units 1 to 3 Station Road Industrial Estate, Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire. AB42 5EE or by email to email@example.com by Noon on Monday 6th August.
The directors of PomPrint Designs were pleased to announce to their employees today that the Mintlaw based Embroidery, Printing and Design company were about to break the £1M turnover barrier for the first time with still one month of sales to go! This record year for sales breaks the previous record set only last year where their turnover first broke £3/4M, and would appear to herald the arrival of a new leaf in the journal of the company’s ten year history.
We would like to use this blog to publicly congratulate and thank our staff who have worked so hard to make this achievement possible and will be looking into a suitable way to celebrate the event once the company’s tax year finishes at the end of August and the full extent of its success is known.
Until then, we have got orders to get out the door……….
