200 DVDs and a Lot of Bags of Sugar

This is how our tiny village Post Office weighs large boxes. On a scale, balanced with bags of sugar!

400 copies of the DVD Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown will arrive soon at our distributors Cordee.

This is double their initial order, which I couldn't fulfill, having sold too many of the first batch. 600 went in just 10 days!

A second presing of 1000 arrived 2 days ago. But with advance orders I now have fewer than 600 left in the UK and under 550 in the US. And there's not time for another pressing before Christmas.


If you're a UK / European retailer waiting for your order, Cordee should get out to you in the next few days.

However, I suspect they might use a more sophisticated measuring aparatus.

simon - am so disappointed that your site has now become a marketing tool/ advertising form for gordon browns dvd rather than the entertaining blog it once was. i have purchased the dvd but please less plugging and more blogging !

Hi Lou 'n' Chris

Hmm, what a well observed point. You're right. It's not deliberate. the blog reflects what's going on in my life and, at the moment, it's dominated by this damn DVD!

But I appreciate you leaving the comment and I will do my best to steer away from this.

There IS more to life!!!

Lou 'n' Chris was thinking that myself and I'm in the DVD but wasn't sure if I should say anything.

So thanks for vocalising my thoughts.
