The World: My Oyster!

At the risk of repeating myself, it never ceases to amaze me just how much information is at my fingertips on the  glorious World Wide Web.  In celebration of this here's a taster of what I've discovered over the last week.

  • Now I knew that the hues of those lovely  hydrangeas, that are abundant at the moment indicate soil pH but I didn't realise that they are in constant disagreement with litmus paper.  For them, a blue flower indicates an acid soil.
  • Contrary to the beliefs of my work colleagues I'm not eccentric.  I have to say that I'm a little disappointed!
  • Facebook alerted me to the fact that a potentially wonderful store Social Fabric which will run creative workshops as well as selling fabric and stuff is soon to open in Totnes.
  • There's a Briton in Iraq who was tortured and unfairly tried.  Now he's been sentenced to fifteen years in prison after trial lasting a quarter hour.  I've signed Amnesty's petition to request his release
  • I dream of a house of my own.  This one at nearby Haytor would fit the bill nicely with its attached studio.  At £480,000 it's out of my price range and I'd have to win.....
  • Euromillions!  Even though I'm not a regular lottery player I'm considered playing for the 148 million Euro jackpot.  I could do a lot of good for myself, friends and family and yes, complete strangers with that kind of wonga.
  • My hose reel is misbehaving.  It's blocked and I still haven't found a solution. Still I know that others suffer similar angst over garden equipment!
