I went inside McLaren's incredible production centre to see how it makes its supercars and of course took a ton of pictures. Come see! (this has been a massive amount of work): http://www.cnet.com/uk/pictures/inside-mclaren/

Why do bats have sparkly poop?

Bats eat a lot of bugs -- up to two-thirds of their body weight in insects daily for some species. There's an unexpected side effect of all that insect eating, though. Bat scat is described as " sparkling with insect exoskeletons." Generally the words "sparkling" and "faeces" aren't found together, unless you have a toddler that's gotten into a jar of glitter.

It's a diet of insects that puts the shine in bat guano. Insects' exoskeletons, or hard outer coverings, are made of chitin. Chitin is chemically a lot like plant cellulose; it's difficult to digest, and passes through a gut relatively unchanged. If you eat a lot of shiny insects, you are going to produce Twinkle Turds.

My Montreal top five

I spotted this little guy hanging around Le Plateau in Montreal. Isn't he sweet?

THE BELLS OF HEMSCOTT: GLAMPING IN NORTHUMBERLAND

There are a handful of places in the UK that make me feel nostalgic and that I could revisit time and time again. These are they; the places that are woven deep within my ongoing travel story: Cartmel and Coniston in the Lake District; the New Forest; Abersoch and Portmeirion in Wales and the Northumberland Coastline.

I returned to the latter this weekend — to Druridge Bay — after Alison from the Bells of Hemscott saw me raving about it on Twitter. I’ve written about this part of the world before and praised its beaches to high heaven, but I’m always keen to return.
