That is, hello world of IFSQN'rs - it's been awhile since I've managed to log in and was most interested to see how IFSQN has grown. I can blog? Wow!

So a quick introduction - last time I was here, I was working for a third party certification body , doing food safety and quality audits for food manufacturers and food packaging manufacturers; also some quality system audits for non-food sectors. These days I'm doing second party audits.

I'm thinking of writing (if I can - between the frantic catching up on audit preparation, writing up, follow up, study and so forth) on the challenges of the auditing life (my auditing life, that is - I seem to be somewhat more challenged than some!). And for fun, perhaps, facebook-style 'what I'm up to' updates.

First 'what I'm up to' - today's exciting development was buying a replacement knife. My Arcosteel knife set has seen me through 15 years of good service.. there was a really good deal on knives down the road and the other half was quite excited to see we could get a Global knife set for $20 less than the cheapest price online. I was fixated on the $250 price tag.. but he knows a good deal when he sees one, I suppose. So I'm now a proud owner of some razor sharp knives.

The only thing better than a good knife..is a good knife set (if you love food and cooking even a little bit!) (Last night was a delicious and oh so easy BBQ spare rib recipe for the family bring-a-plate party)

And speaking of essential and great tools - the only thing better than a good knife set (if you're also a food safety auditor ..) is a good torch. Snap poll - what's your most essential tool as an auditor?

My pick for a torch (thanks go to she-who-shall-not-be-named-here..) is.

Try it and tell me what you think!
