A few of the things Googled this week ....
How to open an old Cable Turtle ( you can't if it's really old and not bendy , I gather ) , which leads me onto How to Cable Stitch Crochet , bypassing the unattractive sounding Cable Gland , which two pages later segues into How to clean a turtle tank ( no , you can't just hand them each a dish mop )
How to cook Red Camargue Rice .... again ..... it's my recurring Senior Moment . I can never remember how much water to use .
Victor Mature .
Lotus Eating .
How much cholesterol in liver ( too much if you're on a low cholesterol diet . You'd be safer just eating the bacon ) .
Springing hedgehogs .... don't panic ! Macrocranion Tupaiodon lived thousands of years ago and was wooly rather than spikey , anyway . There's a very nice fossil in our local Nature museum , if you're passing .
This year''s Top Names For Babies .But somehow I can't see Will and Kate choosing Atticus , Magnus or Hank if it's a boy , while neither Juno nor Lizzie seem quite right if it's a girl . We'll just have to wait and see .
Encyclopaedia Britannica .
See , hours of fun !
