This area is known as the Everglades, really amazing little walk. Well worth a visit if you're in the area

Thanks +Sana rose​​, I'd have loved to have shared more pictures, but my battery died on my phone whilst I was there. Such is life.

Decisions decisions .. 
Chinese man juggles 17 girlfriends who knew nothing about each other, only being discovered when they all attended his bedside in hospital. Oh that had to be an awkward moment.

That moment when all 17 turned up at the hospital. A tragic comedy. Just goes to show, you really can't hide the truth, it comes out one way or another.

Thank God for common sense. After being refused my walkers free lunch voucher at +Asda​, because apparently a lunch isn't a lunch without a sandwich, their customer services came to the rescue and overturned the decision.
Hats off for good customer service, I'll enjoy my egg custard now.

Thanks +Pete Simpson​​​, the stupid staff member who refused me based her argument on the fact the voucher had a little picture of a sandwich to represent a lunch, and in her logic, therefore it wasn't valid unless I had some. The text stated very clearly any food items with a walkers product, £4 or less.
Thankfully, the girl at customer service was capable of reading and not just looking at the pictures.

A very interesting read. Question everything and the truth will set you free.
Why do girls abandon the liberties of a modern democracy to travel back to the dark ages of IS?

Nearly 250 years ago, this is where it was happening. The world first iron spanned bridge. A real inspiration, modern technology meets smart people and boundaries get broken.

One of the things which really stands out if you go walking in that area is the smell. It's been 100's of years since it was used, yet there are places that still have a very strong coal/soot like smell. 

Down the river from Ironbridge is an area called Coalport. No points for guessing what went on there. They were in the process of building something there and you could see the dark coal colour of the soil.

I'm afraid those times were polluted beyond what most people in the western world have experienced. I've experienced it in India and I know exactly what you're talking about, but then it was mostly the smell of coal burning, soot filled skies which got everywhere, into your hair, on your food.

The other thing is the noises of that era, while our children still refer to trains as "chu chu trains", they really did "Chu chu" then .. But not just trains, all steam engines did, in factories, on heavy equipment, on steam ships. The noises of steam powered engines would have been everywhere, along with the familiar white pillows of steam rising from them.

Horses were the main means of transportation, in fact most public houses in the UK were staging areas to give your horses and riders a break, a drink and a little food on their way to their destination, as journeys could take days, not hours.

Different world ! For good and for bad.

The end is nigh ?

Well, not quite. Microsoft are moving to the same method of development as Google, some may argue, they are going the same way as Chromium too.

Either way, this is a bit of a strange announcement. At a time when gamers now have Steam on Linux/Apple Mac, Servers have already long gone to Linux, what kind of message does this send to the last bastions of Microsoft dominance, The corporate customers.

In one sense, there should be a big cheer, because finally OS upgrades should become a thing of the past, however, the model most business' employ for managing change is going to need to be much more robust ! According to Microsoft, new technologies will simply be rolled out in updates. If I was running a corporate estate of a few thousand computers, I'd want to manage that change !! Most large corps should already be doing this, but these kinds of updates may change the UI, they may make old bits of hardware obsolete .. put simply, it's a nightmare to manage.

This is a high risk announcement by Microsoft, however .. For some time they have been dying on their feet, and they have to do something. How this pans out, really could be a game changer for computers moving forward.
Windows 10 will be the last version of the operating system to be numbered, says Microsoft executive.

This isn't the first time a microwave oven has baffled scientists, they really should put it to the top of their list of things to double check when ET phones home.
Australian scientists discover that mysterious signals hitting a renowned space telescope are actually from microwaves.

Classic anglo curry house, right out of the 80s. It's not desi at all, but rather a well prepared curry for the English palette.

I've never been a great fan of fish, mostly because as a lazy westerner, I tend to find dealing with the bones quite an issue. However, I really enjoyed my visit here. First off you go and pick your fish, the fish is all freshly caught, and is coming in while you are picking. Then once selected, you can move across to the counter where you can pick how you would like your fish to be prepared. Finally the fish is delivered, and is so well cooked the meat just falls off the bones :) Making it MUCH easier to eat, particularly nice with large Roti or rice. Very much worth going to experience.
