  • Royal Mail used Postman pat for PR until 2000 when they fired the clumsy postie for longer fitted with their corporate image. Did anyone play the imaginatively named “Postman Pat” on the ZX Spectrum?

  • If laid end to end, the boxes of Kellogg’s cereal eaten since 1906 would reach to the moon and back over 160 times. Which is only useful when you realise that the Neil & Buzz took cornflakes to the moon for their breakfast. There was me thinking the only food you’d needed on the moon is crackers

  • The first ever item sold on eBay was a broken master pointer. While a copy of the 1996 single You & I from German rock band The Scorpions, sold for £2.89

What are stocks are you waiting on this week? Hop into the comments below with your highlights of the week.

Last week I asked what your beverage of choice would be to accompany the crowdfunding pitch, now it should be because of the lack of unicorn or the fact it was 10am but the concencus pick was a tall glass of Umbong (the drink it in the jungle) and a wagon wheel. Can you still get the wagon wheels with jam in them?

Hope you enjoyed reading, don’t forget to hit that :heart: and comment below with your thoughts - these post work best when everyone chips in. As always none of this should be considered as investment advise, obviously, because listen to a man who ate a whole packet of custard creams would be a terrible idea!

Happy investing, may the markets be green and dividends plentiful! :sauropod: :moneybag: :four_leaf_clover:

Scottish Mortgage IT (5-year return 152%, 10-year return 516%)
Macfarlane Group (5-year return 222%, 10-year return 746%)
STV Group (5-year return 39%, 10-year return 920%)

Was going to do Susan Calman but did know if she had the profile. I love her, she’s crackers.

Consider it done

That is, impressively, still less depressing than being a fan over the same time period.
