It’s summer and that time of year that I get things done that I can’t bear to do in the winter. The winter with its grey sky, warm fireplaces, cosy pubs, brisk walks is the time of year that I love to spend hours upon hours reading and writing. Summer time is the time to get the house painted, sort out the garden and have a massive clear out.
Ted is out of sorts. We are camping in one room with painters in all the other rooms after a hard week of de-cluttering. Why am I keeping notes from 1802? Wait! I am not that old, but it feels like it. No sooner than I get the bags for charity shops done, the painters with ladders and wet pots of paint descend upon us. Too much for a little Fox Terrier.
It’s also the week I take off from my regular blog posts as my brain is full of colour samples and a headache from the fumes…so I’ll be back soon with the house fully painted and ready to post away.
In the meanwhile some amazing items in the news
A Lab Grown Burger devoured in London today.
Not sure how I feel about that one. Better for the animals, but is it safe for us? Test tube meat? Could be the answer to the world’s hunger problems. Meat for everyone world-wide!
What was the comment on the taste..bit dry…as there was no fat in it.
Would you eat a lab grown burger?
A hackable super toilet?
Can you imagine using the loo, that automatically flushes, the bidet sprays gently, music surrounds you, and a fragrance of your choice fills the space. Just as you relax some hacker chuckles and decides to play some games. Oh the revenge someone could have…well if you have well over five thousand pounds to spend on your marble throne in the first place.
Japan’s Talking Space Robots
Lastly….I love Siri, but can you imagine a talking robot rocketing off to space? What if it ran into an alien life form and conversed like Siri? What would the Japanese inventors do to fix this glitch?
Robot: Hello Space Creature
Space Creature: Robot where are you from?
Robot: I cannot answer that. I can look it up on the web.
