For the first time I tasted the oil from the 2018 harvest. It is peppery and just plain fabulous. This stuff is for drinking or eating with bread not for wasting on salads or in frying. The remnants from 2017 will do for that. Joshua and I bought a stack of jars from Dunelm yesterday and today we decanted most of my first, of three, 5 litre cans. As you can see below it is a classic lime green. Perfect in colour as well as taste.

Andrew Bell, the reward for your labours is the big one litre jar which i shall post early next week. The rest are for family and other friends. The best thing about Christmas is giving presents and thus, this afternoon, Joshua will drop off two of the small jars to our friends at the local Italian greasy spoon where we sometimes have lunch and to the man from the Deli, the croissant shop as Joshua terms it. Those folks will really appreciate it. The others will be posted or hand delivered over the coming days as will a few more jars I have yet to fill.

Joshua's part in the decanting? Creating a total mess with the wrapping paper - a task he excelled at.

EXPOSE: Versarien – are graphene sales just a nano amount of group turnover? The hard and shocking data revealed

Uber ramp Versarien (VRS) refuses adamantly to break out how much of its business is actually involved in graphene. It is the graphene hype which explains why the shares are at 79.5p valuing the company at £122 million. The legacy non graphene activities may generate real sales but will never be material cash cows and thus are fundamentally almost worthless. So how much does Versarien actually make from graphene?
