121. Tarragon: A CBT Company
Post-NYE Mugspotters HQ looks like Godzilla has just trampled through it. However some of us like to be kept on our toes and so go first-footing into 2015 with some Alfresco action courtesy of our Bury-Based branch, in the form of this lilting Cambridge for “Tarragon”. Not for one minute do I think it’s expounding the virtues of the popular and versatile herb from whose slender stem sprouts narrow, tapering and slightly floppy leaves which have an intense flavour that’s a unique blend of sweet aniseed and a mild vanilla. Not on your Nelly.!
So what of Tarragon, the brand? They appear to be a U.S. firm specialising in CBTs – or Computer-Based Training with some tentative link back into the UK via http://www.insightgroup.co.uk/. Having looked at their swanky website I’m struggling to (a.k.a losing the will to) make a connection. If BBC’s Sherlock creators & writers Stephen Moffat & Mark Gatiss are running short of ideas maybe they can form this teasing puzzle into an Episode for Sherlock: Season 4?
I hate to temper the mood here but it is with sadness I can also reveal the mug itself never survived the photo-shoot. Such are the risks of outdoor photography. Neither was it insured. The vessel was somehow dislodged and smashed, so this is the last-known photo of this doomed Cambridge.
Finally may I take this opportunity wish all our Spotters, readers, followers, fellow bloggers & fans a very Happy New Year!
