Better late than never; I’ve been a bit under the weather the past week or so, not feeling too well at all, and, as a result of which, I haven’t acknowledged/replied to several comments made on my last post; and believe me there are/were, many!
To be honest I’ve usually subscribed to the old adage ” I might not always be right but I’m never wrong”, with the variation, (being a modest sort of bloke) with, “I might not always be wrong, and I’m never right” 👿
I’ve always thought/believed, that brevity is/was, the home of knowledge and wisdom, not that I’m claiming either of these virtues.
There are those though, that like to show their erudition, by giving long, convoluted explanations, and answers, to a simple matter, and,since the advent of the Internet, and Google, with many links to sites/places/blogs, whatever, to give credence to their long, convoluted explanation; at times running to probably a couple of thousand word.
Well each to his own I suppose. I sometimes think, perhaps that is a sign of what could loosely be termed an inferiority complex; something which I’ve never had. To the contrary I’ve always had a superiority complex 😈
I was wrong!
As the heading states I WAS WRONG, the ad that I was carrying on about, one might add at times vehemently, was not wrong. I’d read it quickly and as is my want, blew my top at what I considered false advertising.
It wasn’t; this was brought to my full notice and attention by none other than drum roll “Garrulous Gwen”. She had given me a long burst, which I believe had precious little to do with the ad, but a lot to do with her association with said retailer, to which I made a facetious reply.
Garrulous Gwen then straighten me out, very succinctly, and here’s what she wrote:
- The brown rice pictured in the ad is on special
Fourteen words. The brown rice and quinoa mixture, is not pictured, and is not on special.
Like me Colonialist seemed to have doubts about brown rice & quinoa as a mixture. I went to Sunwhite Rice’s website and sure enough they do have this mixture.
My good mate Neill made this comment; (again cut and pasted just like Gwens);

Brian, at first I thought that, but on closer inspection, I think they are excluding a mix of brown rice and quinoa. Quinoa is supposed to be one of those super foods.
