Really positive action by only 900 people to change the government stance on carbon emissions.  It might be a smaller country but the effect of global warming on the Netherlands cannot be underestimated considering 26% of the country is below sea level already.  

#environment  
A court in the Netherlands today ordered the Dutch government to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in what environmental groups are hailing as a landmark ruling. As Reuters reports, the...

Take 10-15 minutes to just watch a very chilled video of a tree-house build on top of an old volcano with a stunning view over forests, hills...and the skate park they built - I'd happily watch this again.

Stunning piece of Zelda artwork - genuinely would love to see this on my wall - a T-Shirt would not do this justice

Engineering awesomeness. A wind generator without a turbine. Less moving parts (I love magnets) and uses an artifact of tall structures that most architects try to design away.

A "forest" of wind generators with no blade. I wonder what they sound like...
The Vortex, a radical new way to generate wind energy, is a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky.

Took a detour to investigate the hill that the running club use for training sometimes and got a "5th overall" time 😰 which was a little unexpected.

Almost feel like I could push for better on the next trip out but more importantly I need to get my distance running up. Just over a month until my first half marathon.

I am a mad +Trello​ fan, I use for the house #diy project, I use it for my rainy day plans, I use it for building websites and I occasionally break it and have to ask support to fix it (there were a lot of comments on that card to be fair but they nailed the fix in a day so high five to support).

+IFTTT​ has awesome built in due to automation being the best thing since the last best thing. And now the best thing is that +Trello​ and +IFTTT​ work together!

Recipes and concoctions are already being made in my head. Empty my inbox, automate my calendar, turn a flashy light on...why because I can!
You can now use IFTTT to cook up some cool Trello integrations with your favorite apps, like Evernote, GitHub, Slack, and Craigslist, to name a few.

Saw something like this on one of the +Grand Designs​ shows with clever use of shipping containers. Love the amount of light the roof on this design brings in to the house and the wood-clad finish I may have a soft spot for.

Basil the Hero

He might be small but he has survived spinal surgery and recovery under the care of www.allanimalrecue.co.uk and now he gets to join us for walks in the forest on glorious sunny days!

A "peaky" but not overdone HDR-esque image that reminds me of some of my old film-taken photographs standing in the fields where I grew up.

The sunshine has arrived, time to get out and have fun with the camera again!

If you sneak around in the settings->about section of an #android phone you can tap repeatedly on the "Android Version" until it pops up a fun little "Easter egg" - in my case a lollipop that changes colour every time you tap it.

One of my photographs is set at the backdrop-works quite well don't you think 😊

Helpful staff, good quality meat and always able to find us something for the easter and christmas. Even had some good tips on curing and smoking meat at home.

One of the best archaeological visits we've made, a wonderful site (but seriously hot), very much worth getting there for the 8am opening time so that you have a chance to get some photos without too many tourist about. As well as the amazing stonework there are quite a few animals about too: iguana, lizards and colourful birds. The beach was closed due to sea turtle hatching season but not much was missed. Really worth a visit.

Food is amazing, can get very busy at times and while the service is quick drinks were forgotten a few times. But if the locals rate it highly and so do we I would say make sure you pay a visit.

Compact street café with excellent coffee, artisan sweet food and very friendly and knowledgeable staff, they helped me work out how to pull a better shot of coffee too!

Stunning eco park. All kinds of activities, mainly water based but educational too. Plenty of additional, paid-for, extras but the all-inclusive price had us busy there from open to close. An amazing experience. Not to be missed. Tips: Book early online to get the best price instead of through your tour operator. Grab the "collectivo" buses (25-30 pesos each) from the hotel instead of the taxis for cheap travel.
