Happy 2016 Sardine Eaters! Hope everyone has had some excellent Tin popping so far this year! There's been a few changes to the site. I did away with the black background, and in doing so I seemed to upset the Google Gods. Not all text and pics transferred 100%. Some text is highlighted black and some pics have shrunk. Followers/subscribers of the blog who are not on Google Chrome were kicked off the site. Mouth Full of Sardines is now on Instagram. I've started a  hashtag: "#SardineEater." You can now hashtag your pics #SardineEater, and I will place them on the Sardine Eater page. 


Keep popping those tins, Sardine Eaters!
