Amiga Ireland 2019 Update

Dear Amigans,

We were thrilled to hear RJ Mical’s intentions to visit the Amiga Ireland meeting this year, but as it seems… the luck was not with the Irish this time.

RJ Mical just informed us that he has to cancel his plans for our upcoming event. He was looking forward to it as much as we did, but an important medical appointment for “patching his intuition library” was pushed forward by the doctors and although he tried, he had no influence on that one.

Obviously his health comes first and we wish him well for the procedure and we will welcome him for the next one!

The original plan of course goes ahead unaltered and we look forward to seeing everyone this Friday.

For any queries, contact info@amigausers.ie

AmiPizza – A Guide for the Distinguished Amigan

A study by the World Health Organisation recently found that one pizza per day contains 99% of the recommended daily allowance of nearly all our required nutrients, vitamins and minerals. So unless you are one of the ~60% of people who are allergic or intolerant to dairy, it might be time to give up the porridge, the salads and smoothies and have pizza instead, followed by a delicious pureed pizza smoothie. But having pizza every day can get a little boring so for those of you who prefer a needlessly varied diet, read on for some inspiration!

We’ve been asked to release the secret to the AmiPizza and we’re going to do just that. Continue reading “AmiPizza – A Guide for the Distinguished Amigan”
