birdfeed and TV science

So, another weekend's whizzed by. We've not had any real appointments (save for church this morning) which has meant we could enjoy the simple things, such as a walk to the library and putting up some bird feeders in the garden.

I'm not sure how well the latter will work, to be honest - perhaps it's because of local cats, but the blackberries at the furthest reaches of the garden haven't been touched (that reminds me - I must go and harvest them!) which would imply that the local cats would make short work of them if they ventured down to ground level.

At the moment, the only birds who perch on the wooden arch are wood-pigeons, but if others turn up, I'll be sure to record it here!

Well, before I go to bed I shall watch the end of the rather entertaining Mythbusters - it's more scientific than Brainiac, and far more American. I shall have to record some of them for Christopher, now I've finally got round to seeing one!

In fact, Beth was saying that there's really nothing like Tomorrow's World on any more - it's true.. Christopher tends to find out about robots and technology from videos on YouTube, which just shows how things have progressed since the days of Michael Rodd and demonstrations that didn't work!

Before I go, I'm sad to report that the brililant interactive "magnetic words" game on the internet - Psychobabble - is no more... there's a report on its demise here; there's even a 1300 name petition to bring it back. There's nothing like it out there... I suppose I'll have to stick with the brilliant (and still going!) iSketch. Or get on with some housework!

Finally, Beth's found a link to a document (in PDF format) detailing the road improvement work that's going on round our way in the next couple of years. Handy to have, although I'm not sure it all makes sense!
