What is Twitter good for?

Lots of things! I found one particularly good use for it recently. Yesterday I published a fact sheet which I copied directly from George Monbiot’s blog about the harm traffic pollution does to children. I thought I’d better double-check with him that this would be ok and so I sent him a Tweet. He replied almost instantly.

Isn’t that great?

On other matters we’ve exhausted our Doctor Who collection. We’ve watched all the new series from 2005 onwards and a number of the old 1970s and 1980s episodes and this week we decided it was time for a change, at least until the new season comes out next month. I decided to introduce the kids to Fawlty Towers on Tuesday night and it was a huge hit. They absolutely loved it! We watched the Basil the Rat episode which is probably one of the best.
