A couple of days ago, our vacuum cleaner decided to revert to an inanimate lump of plastic.
Online we order a new one,

Talk about a kid with a new toy, The boss vacuumed the lounge, the bedrooms, the hallway and was last seen heading down the garden to vacuum the decking.

Do you prefer to buy DRM-free ebooks?

You can read them on any device you want, and they're not locked to a single vendor or company. You actually own them.

Here is a list of online bookshops that sell DRM-free ebooks, digital comics, and RPGs!

@stannard in addition to babbling as they walk, I am seeing more people walking around in the woods with headphones/earphones on.

Teenager was recalling the time he took them off to find how quiet the forest was, it was eerily and scarily quiet. He hasn't returned 😆

With lockdown and a new baby I have barely had a chance to get out into the woods often enough to see if this beast was still around.

But a little while ago I came across this article kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/r

Not many things anger me nowadays but this did. Strangely enough it was the fact that the body was left and not used that annoyed me the most. Also, that this beast was never to be seen again.

I went out yesterday morning for a walk, maybe watch the sun come up over the hills (cloudy, typical). I made the decision to keep down wind and walk along the edge of the woods just in case there were some deer.

Who doesn’t like watching the wild deer in the woods?

That’s when I walked straight into the white stag!!! Now I can’t be absolutely sure it’s the same one but the missing antler had half grown back as the other antler had grown at roughly the same rate.

It was quite a solid beast and it was with another deer which was completely black.

We stared at each other for a while before they eventually moved off.

But that made my day knowing it’s still there and that will probably spur me on to get out there a bit more often.

Oh, here they are.

#Iran killed 52 Kurd border porters in the past year

Porters (or kolbars) are workers hired to carry heavy loads across the border for a meager pay.

Many are under 18 who work in such dangerous conditions to help support their families.
