This is some very good advice. If you have not yet set up your recovery options on your Google account, take time this weekend to do so :)

If you think that Ryanair is the worst airline company when it comes to charging it's customer for extras (everything from extra bag fees, credit card fees, sales of in-flight food and drink), you'd be surprised to know that it is not actually the head of the list. That dubious honour goes to Jet2.com, where such extras account for 26.5 percent of their total earnings!

OK, an updated on that United Airlines ticket story from a couple of days ago. Looks like they are going to honour the ticket sales for those lucky, eagle-eyed customers :) https://twitter.com/united/status/378587149299617792 "We’ve reviewed the error that occurred yesterday and based on these specific circumstances, we will honor the tickets."

This is amazing - Scientists image the radio signal of the Voyager 1 spacecraft at the edge of the solar system, 12 billion miles away from Earth. http://www.space.com/22787-voyager-1-signal-interstellar-space-photo.html. This harkens back to the "Pale Blue Dot" image taken of the Earth by Voyager 1 from 4 billion miles away.

We're having a farmers market here in Waterford at the moment, and it's great fun. Lots of food and music and beer :) I found this very appropriate video on YouTube just now :) This is excellently animated, and apparently, there is an app that goes along with it.

I like Lego, used to have an absolute load of the stuff. Here is a very interesting project, quite fun too :)

Good news for the residents of the island of Giglio, in Tuscany, Italy. The Costa Concordia has been righted, and rolled onto a support platform. With any luck, they will be able to inspect and repair any damage, before, hopefully, taking the ship away in the Spring for demolition. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24121480

I like the idea of this camper for a small car. The manoeuvrability looks to be excellent! I like the honest advertising as well "of course, after spending several hours en route, they'll either be good friends, or bitter enemies" :)

This is interesting, though I am not sure how well I could do without all my technology around me :) The Guelph family in Toronto has banned any technology from after 1986 in their house. This was after they could not get their kids (aged 5 and 2) to put down their parents' iPad and iPhone to go outside and kick a ball around the yard. http://www.torontosun.com/2013/08/31/guelph-family-lives-like-its-1986/

OK, there are motorhomes, and then there are /motorhomes/. We have difficulty every year with getting availability for the Burning Man Festival (hint - book now for Burning Man 2014!), but I don't think any of our suppliers have /anything/ like this motorhome available! This is obviously the Adams Family Summer Runabout, what do you think?
