Loved episode one of the Cosmos reboot and found the references to the original touching.
Just not sure why they thought an animated George Harrison was the best choice to play Giordano Bruno.
One of my favourite beers, Greene King's Abbot Ale is on sale, two for one at my local Carrefour because it's approaching it's sell by date.
Carrefour obviously had a large stock of this that failed to sell (I'm probably the only purchaser in this predominantly Chinese neighbourhood). So I don't hold out much hope of stocks being replenished once the current batch is gone. :-(
Such a simple choice and a very simple idea. But it's the simple ideas that work.
The premise of Roikoi is that you make a simple, anonymous, choice about your online contacts (currently only Facebook but more networks to come). The choice is would you: Hire, Fire or Skip this person if they were applying for a job with you.
Roikoi then creates leaderboards of those who've been voted upon. I'm still not sure how they're going to manage this if it takes off, which I believe it will, because it could be a very useful tool for recruiters, sifting through heaps of resumés.

WKD may sound like a popular drink but in this case it stands for "World Kidney Day" and besides, people on dialysis can only drink a small glass of fluid each day of their lives. So could never enjoy a nice long drink of any kind. In fact that is only just one of many limitations they face every day. Having to dialyze 3 days out of each week. The process taking a few hours on each occasion.
I was lucky because we identified my problem just in the nick of time and totally by chance. It's possible that had we not, my wife would be visiting my grave.
A sobering thought....
My dad was my savior. He gave me one of his kidneys and a very talented team of NHS surgeons, doctors, consultants and nurses saw that it happened. It was a success.
I was one of the lucky ones but so many are less so.
So this week spare your kidneys some thought. Give donation some thought. Get a donor card. Donate money to a local or national kidney charity. Raise awareness of this often not so well publicised issue. Be altruistic.
You may do what my dad did and save someone's life. #ft
Charlotte has started posing for photos without any encouragement.
My wife just announced that she wants our next car to be a Tesla S. Not sure how practical that is in China at the moment, but, I'm certainly willing to be proved wrong. Maybe by the time we're in a position to get one, things will have improved infrastructurewise.
It boils down to this: Britain is ready to betray the United States to protect the City of London’s hold on dirty Russian money. And forget about Ukraine.
