Crispix is a brand of breakfast cereal, introduced by Kellogg's in 1983.

Honey Flavored Crispix have been sold twice in the UK, twice have been discontinued, its box touts its unique composition of "Crispy rice on one side, crunchy corn on the other." The cereal itself is in a hexagon shape. The two sides are connected only at the edges. Crispix is kosher/parve. Australia has a honey version as well as a chocolate version known as Coco Pops Chex. A variation of original Crispix introduced in late 2001 known as Cinnamon Crunch Crispix was described by Kellogg's as a "rispy corn and rice cereal with a cinnamon taste." Its box boasted its unique composition, of "Corn on One Side, Rice on the Other". Cinnamon Crunch Crispix joined a number of cereals discontinued by Kellogg's after disappointing sales. Crispix received one and a half stars out of five on the Australian Government's health star ratings

Scots Grey

The Scots Grey is a dual-purpose breed of domestic chicken originating in Scotland, where it has been bred for more than two hundred years. It was known as the Scotch Grey and until about 1930 was popular in Scotland, it is on the "Native Poultry Breeds at Risk" list of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. The Scots Grey is a upright chicken. Apart from the height, it is similar to the Scots Dumpy; the Scots Grey has a single comb. The face, wattles and comb are bright red, the beak and shanks are white, sometimes marked with black; the plumage is barred. The ground colour is steel-grey, the barring is black with a metallic sheen. Although both sexes are similar, the markings are larger in hens than in cocks, may give a tartan appearance; the Scots Grey is classed as a light breed: cocks weigh about 3.2 kilograms and hens about 2.25 kg. There is a Scots Grey bantam. Cocks weigh 620 -- hens 510 -- 570 g; the Scots Grey is a dual-purpose breed, kept both for meat. In temperament, it is an active bird that does best under free range conditions, as it is hardy, forages well.

They released, Words Can't Express, in 1983 with Message Records, which would be their last album released by them, this was their Billboard magazine breakthrough release upon the Gospel Albums chart, their other albums were released by Command Records, starting in 1985, with the release of Dedicated, this charted #1 on the aforementioned chart.

The origins of the duo date back to Philip Nicholas' father, a repentant Jazz musician, he became a minister of music around his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

While in high school, Philip acquired the ability to play the piano, which he utilized in his family band, The Nicholas Chorale Ensemble, that counted as its members Philip's brother, nephews and Ira Jackson, a number of other friends and family members on a revolving basis. Philip went to college in his hometown at Drexel University, he was close friends with a young lady named Diane. She united Philip with a dorm-mate of hers, Brenda Watson, because Brenda was a loud, early morning, shower songstress in the dormitory bathroom. Diane felt that bringing Brenda to Philip's singing group would give her dormitory floor well earned relief from Brenda's early morning shower concerts. Brenda and Philip would soon hit it off both in their professional and personal lives, marrying on February 18, 1978, that just happened to be on Philip's 24th birthday. After completing college and marrying in New Jersey, the duo settled in Los Angeles, California where they became musical ministers at the renowned pastor, Dr. E.

V. Hill's church. In pursuit of their professional music career, they coined Nicholas, they tried and failed to release albums with Motown Records, so Philip alongside partner and brother, Lonnie Nicholas, they established their own record label, Message Records in 1981. At this time the group was a quartet, with another nephew as the main vocalist; this brotherly owned label would soon cease, when Philip and Lonnie differed over the labels direction, causing Philip to depart, creating Command Records with ex-Motown producer, Kent Washburn. The duo, but quartet at the time, released albums in 1981 entitled Tell the World, Words Can't Express in 1983, in 1985 the album Dedicated, a 12 inch single Tell Somebody/God's Woman in 1985.
