I have been terrified of spiders for as long as I can remember, and it just kept getting worse. So at the weekend I took a Trip to +ZSL London Zoo  for their Friendly Spider Programme. It was incredible. By the end of it, even though I was nervous, I was able to pick up a common house spider, and remove it using a cup and some card. I even held a tarantula and wasn't even particularly phased. It was staggering, never in a million years did I think I'd be able to get so close a spider, never mind touch it and pick it up!

If anyone in the UK has a fear of spiders, I can't recommend attending this course enough, you won't regret it.

Thanks, +ZSL London Zoo !!

What a great video!

"24 years ago my dad, Rick Lookebill, had to part ways with his first car, a 1972 Mustang MACH 1. Over the years he has talked of wanting to locate it and we even ran across it once in Clinton, Illinois in 1999. Recently, he has had a "spark" in his interest of finding it and we were able to locate it for him three weeks ago. However, all he knew is that we located it...there is much more to the story however. This car belongs to no one but him and he deserves to have it back in his possession. So...we acted on that and brought the car back home to Indiana from Florida this week and put the keys back in the hand they belong in. Oddly enough...nothing has been done to the body of the vehicle since he watched it leave his house 24 years ago!! Today, needless to say, was a GREAT day!!!!"

Microsoft changes Bing autocomplete to say Xbox One is 'amazing.'

If you type "the xbox one is" into Microsoft's Bing search engine, it offers only the following autocomplete: "the xbox one is amazing."

But if you type the same query without the word "the" you get the real result. 

Is this a cute easter egg from Microsoft or a shameless and irresponsible abuse of its search data?
