The magnificent Crane Melon

I’m lucky enough to be spending a couple of months in Sonoma County, California – a mecca of food, drink and scenery. What’s more, it’s harvest time here, which gives me the opportunity to sample many local delights – from sumptuous fruit to fresh dairy produce to palate-burstingly delicious wines. It’s a hard life!

 

One of the most wonderful of these discoveries has been the Crane Melon. I’d heard a lot of good things, but although I’ve been here several times before, it’s never been in season during my stay. Last week I finally managed to eat one. Everything they say is true! Sure, it’s full of flavour and freshness, but what really got me is how refreshing the fruit is. Also, you can eat a lot (!) and feel all the better for it.

 

If you’re ever in Sonoma County, make sure you get your hands on one. You’ll find them at the Crane Melon Barn on Petaluma Hill Road.

 

Happy eating!

Barmy over Britishisms

As someone currently residing in the United States, and with the promise of another televised Presidential debate hanging in the offing, this article was a well-timed observation. According to the New York Times, Americans are going barmy over Britishisms. Actually, ‘Britishisms’ is a new word to me. Is it surely not ‘Anglicisms’? Anyway. Enjoy.

The world’s most in-demand employers: by LinkedIn

This infographic is of particular interest to me, as someone who spends their working life between South-East England and the US West Coast. According to a study by LinkedIn, and based on the data of job seekers within their network, the most desirable location in the world to seek work is San Francisco. This isn’t surprising given the burgeoning success of the Tech sector. It’s backed up by a strong showing from the UK, which leads Europe in terms of desirability and opportunity.

 

On the face of it, things look rosy for me as a freelance Technology copywriter. But with desirability of course, comes intense competition – so I’ll continue to do the best job I can for all those I work with.
