Such a great advert for Southern Africa. If you have not been, you need to... And if you have been, go again.

This is really cool. Imagine if this was a kit you could buy and build yourself...
 
If you’re as excited about The #LEGO Movie as we are at #Bechtel, you should watch our video of the moving #tunnel boring machine replica we had made from 50,000 LEGO bricks. We hope it inspires young people to pursue #engineering careers.

Cabe Atwell has another fun project up on the Element 14 blog, the Drinkmotizer. It's a Pi-powered drink mixing robot: if you can't find a monkey butler, this may be the next best thing! http://ow.ly/sQV2u

Set up a playlist of all my South African Music to keep me company today as we all remember what a tremendous effect Nelson Mandela had on all our lives.

Good quality and value. Richmond is a great village but parking is hard to come by. This pub is perfectly located off the common with parking for you to enjoy a great value quality pub meal and pint then a stroll thought the common along the Thames. The pub has a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was simple but very good.

If you are in a rush with a play to catch, then give this a miss as the service is a bit slow. But, if you are looking for a nice well priced restaurant for a great meal with slow but very friendly service I can definitely recommend this place. I would like to come back for a more relaxed meal to really enjoy what the menu has to offer.

We popped in on our way to Oxford and we both were very impressed with the service and food. That was one of the best burgers I've had, meaty and full of flavour. The chicken burger with chorizo was delicious as well.
