Some people watch paint dry…

Others
however prefer to watch Cheese mature.
A LARGE
English cheddar cheese has become a star of the internet, attracting more than
one million viewers to sit and stare at it as it slowly ripens.
 

First placed in
front of a webcam in late December, the Westcombe cheddar from West Country
Farmhouse Cheese makers leaped to public attention in early February and has
since attracted viewers from 119 countries.

“The hits
went over one million this morning. It has been a real challenge keeping the
cheese up and running with all the interest it has generated,” a spokesman
for the company running the website, www.cheddarvision.tv,
said overnight. 

Watchers have
tuned in from as far afield as
Albania and New Zealand, although most are from the United States.

“The whole
idea was to show people how real food is made – and it seems to be
working,” cheese maker Tom Calver said. 

“It takes a
year for the cheese to mature. This is not fast food. It is slow food.”  (source).


 

What-ever
fills your day up.!!
