First up, the good news, and I'm going to start with an advert that turns air into drinking water. If only ALL adverts could be useful. Meanwhile in Africa, the good news about Mozambique and how it's turned itself around after the end of a civil war. There are still problems, but things are improving. Lastly, we may be inundated with snow, but the people of Kiev have turned a historic street into a skiing slope.
The odd stuff now.
- A while ago I mentioned the nominees for the oddest book title award, well we have a winner. Goblinproofing One's Chicken Coop. Congratulations.
- In India they're using cardboard cutout policemen to deter traffic offenders.
- Children have been encouraged to do a science experiment and discover if MPs produce enough hot air to power the Houses of Parliament.
- Another piece of science, a folding car that could help with parking problems.
- The groundhog has been indicted...for getting his prediction wrong.
- Regulations are officially going mad. One business cannot call their ice cream, ice cream as it doesn't have enough fat.
- A school has banned triangular flapjacks as they caused an injury when one was thrown.
- Finally, Google has forced the banning of a new word in Swedish because they objected to its definition.
Now the moment, you've all been waiting for: Picture time.
And on that note, I bid you a happy Easter and I shall see you on Monday.
