Sweet Thoughts 94

The May 2018 newsletter can be accessed through the Newsletter Page of the website.

The new finds packets have been added to the database and the new finds database has also been updated.

One new set has ben noted which has been added to the sets list.

As indicated in other updates a large number of Tate and Lyle wrappers have been added to the database and wrapper numbers list.  Some of these are reported on in the newsletter.

Don’t forget that as new finds arrive they are added to the New Finds blog.  (Although this can take a couple of weeks.)


Tate and Lyle lump wrappers

I have finished adding to the website a large numbe of Tate and Lyle wrappers. These came from the collection of the late Joan Pick and were scanned by Don Collishaw.

In total there were 835 wrappers more than doubling the the number of wrappers on the SUGARCAT database.  There are now over 12,000 packets on the database.

A large number of these wrappers have reference numbers on and were listed as “missing” on the online version of Pam Millers list of T&L design numbers. The list has been updated such that there are now more known than missing, although I will need to check the online list against Pam’s  verions once she had finsihed upating it.

To access the database and wrappers list you need to be a member.

More lump wrappers

Over the past few weeks another 5 batches of Tate and Lyle lump wrappers have been added to the website; in total over 400 wrappers.

See the added page for more details.


Lump wrappers added

Another batch of 126 lump wrappers have been added to the SUGARCAT database. This is in addition to an earlier batch of 27 wrappers.

All have been scanned and sent by Don Collishaw from the collection of the late Joan Pick.  many of them have been previously listed as “missing” on the Tate & Lyle numbers list maintained by Pam Miller and will be included in the forthcoming newsletter, or the subsequent one. The online list has also been updated.

See the added page for a link to these two batches.

There are a lot more wrapper scans sent by Don that are still to be processed and added.


Packets added

Twenty five packets submittted by Iain Farquhar have been added to the SUGARCAT database. There were from collections donated to UKSC.

See list of packets added.

192 packets submitted by Dave Mansley have been added to the database.

Added page added

A new “added” page has been added to the SUGARCAT database part of the website.

This is intended to show recent batches of packets added to the database as a list. Although it has been possible to select packets by the time they were added this was in certain date ranges. This could be inconvenient for me when adding packets on consecutive days and wanting to check them.

I have therefore changed the code a bit to allow searching on the packet date added field.  By entering, for example, 10/02/2018 in the text field on the SUGARCAT page it is now possible to show all packets added on that date.  Similarly entering 02/2018 will show all packets added in February.

The added page simply makes use of this to list the batched and provide a link that will show the  packets for that particular date.

Sweet Thoughts Issue 93

The February 2018 newsletter can be accessed through the Newsletter Page of the website.

The new finds packets have been added to the database and the new finds database has also been updated.

The Tate and Lyle wrappers shown in the newsletter have also been added to the database and their numbers noted on the list of the known and unknown numbers on T&L wrappers.

Three sets have been noted, one new and two older but previously unknown. These have been added to the sets list with low resolution pdfs.  The list and any set PDFs have also been updated for other sets mentioned in the newsletter (except RKF Attractions).

Don’t forget that as new finds arrive they are added to the New Finds blog.  (Although this can take a couple of weeks.)


Tate & Lyle Wrappers

I have added 34 Tate and Lyle wrappers to the SUGARCAT database from scans sent in by Dave Mansley.  This is just scratching the surface of scans I have from Dave, and Pam Miller and a number of those are also T&L wrappers.  All the new ones are in the TateLyle folder.

I have also updated the T&L numbers list where appropriate.

Fifty four packets have been added to the SUGARCAT database. Most of these are sweeteners from collections donated to the club, scanned and submitted by Pam Miller. There are also a few from Mike Henley.
