A small world …


Way back at the beginning of 2017 I posted about a familiar face popping up on FaceBook and how I was in two minds as to whether I should make contact or not. Looking back, I don’t think I posted that I did get in touch. We had a good evening out some time later, … Continue reading A small world …

An experiment…

As I understand it, shredded paper clogs … Continue reading Recycling and other things …

The kind of thing where you get some equations and you have to work out how they get the answers. It is basic Algebra. I love reading these … Continue reading Puzzling maths puzzles …

Small and strange …


Let me get something out of the way. The title of this post is not a case of self deprecation. No, I’m talking about the world and how is connected by the internet. A bit of background here. I was doing a search on eBay, for something I wanted to buy. I was not having … Continue reading Small and strange …
