Did you know we had a mobile app? Well, you should do because we wrote a post about it in June. If you haven’t downloaded it already, it does lots of nifty little things – like helping you find hospitals and embassies while you’re abroad – but the feature we’re most excited about is the one that’s probably the least useful…
In Seattle, they have a rather well-known wall that is dedicated to the art of sticking chewed gum to anything but the bin.
A few months ago, we wrote about Okunoshima, the island that has been taken over by rabbits. Well, now, we bring you Tashirojima, the island that has been taken over by cats. Prepare yourself for a cute overload!
To most of us, mushrooms are just a type of food – a spongy plate-filler to be either gobbled up or brushed aside, according to our personal tastes. However, there are roughly 14,000 species and only a very small number of these are ever chopped up and covered in garlic. Around the world, mushrooms come in a variety of forms, some of which display a shocking disregard for the lives of other species.
Gardening is seen as a therapeutic hobby – and rightly so too. There’s nothing quite like watching something you put into the ground and watered grow to its full beauty. We tend to buy and pot plants that make our gardens and parks look prettier, but there are some odd plants from different parts of the world that need some, erm, attention too…
Let’s set the scene: it’s mid-to-late August, it’s scorching, the crops yearn for water and the people depend on the crops in order to survive the winter. When in drought, rain dance!
Imagine a massive, burning hole in the ground. Or, if you’ve got no imagination, look at these pictures.
If you like tiny animals, read on. I’ve specified where the tiny animals live so, should you want to, you can try to see them for real. I’ve said “try” because they might be right in front of your face and you still wouldn’t see them, such is their teeny weenyness.
If you’ve ever seen one of our ads while you’re out and about, you’ll know that we love a big, beautiful photo.
What does the word ‘nudibranch’ suggest to you? Perhaps it sounds like somewhere to sit on a special kind of beach? Or maybe it could be the name of a small sub-group within a larger organisation (the nudibranch of the EDL, for example)? Well, as nice as that sounds, neither of these explanations are correct – nudibranchs are delightful little slugs that live underwater.
