whirring and bargains

Lenni, modelling the latest in air blowing equipmentThings have moved on a little over the past day or so. The drying equipment has finally turned up - five air movers, three dehumidifiers and a hot air blower, and they're all whizzing away noisily and insistently. Although it's something of a relief to be in the relative peace of the outdoors, there's still a lot of humidity about, despite the rain having held off today. Lenni's decision to wear earmuffs was a good one! (Click the photo for bigger)

The insurance assessor (loss adjuster?) came today, to ask lots of questions, take photos, and write things down on a rather cool Panasonic Toughbook. We're now waiting for the asbestos inspectors to get in touch, and, once the drying's progressed, a visit from the people who will start to get things back to normal. It'll be quite loud for a while yet, then..

Two for less than the price of one!While we were at Asda this morning, I spotted something of a bargain - two-for-less-than-the-price-of-one! Because I've already got some liquorice allsorts at home, I resisted the temptation to take advantage of such a good deal! (Click the picture to the left for bigger!)

Finally, I read an interesting blog entry (including a link to this YouTube video) warning about the risks to privacy of putting personal information on Facebook. It makes some interesting points, but then I feel the video descends into hyperbole (although this is probably because I'm fairly ignorant of the power of the US government). If I were a student (or moreso, if I actually took the internet seriously!) I would certainly think twice about having a Facebook account.

(Oh, while I still remember.. twitterrific is a cute little app for Mac OS X... makes Twittering quick'n'easy. Too quick'n'easy?)
