Crossrail Are Running Another Archaeology Exhibition

Last year Crossrail showed off all of their archaeological finds.  now they are running another exhibition, to show the latest discoveries.

If it’s half as good as last year’s event, it will be unmissable.

The Times Makes A Mistake

On page 17 of today’s copy of The Times  is a story entitled, Toy toxins harm children. On the next page there is a story headlined, Toxins in toys causing childhood brain illnesses. They even start with the same first paragraph.

Children’s brains are being damaged by industrial chemicals that pervade everyday life, experts have warned.

Did two reporters cut and paste the same story?

It’s Paid To Switch To OVO Energy

I just found this article in the Guardian about OVO Energy. Here’s the first two paragraphs.

An energy company has announced a 2.5% price cut for consumers, saying that the mild winter weather has meant that gas and electricity are cheaper.

Ovo Energy claimed that the reduction meant its bills were now about £180 a year cheaper than the average of the big six companies which supply the bulk of the UK’s households.

So it looks like I was right to swap!

Change After Forty Years

My middle son, who is in his forties came round for supper last night.

For the first time ever, he had a cup of tea. Normally, he drinks coffee!
