Off to do some brain exercising tonight – and will be attending a lecture at the Grant Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy on how nature affected how manmade materials and structures were designed.

I like this sort of thing, especially as it is free – and includes a glass of wine after the talk.

Shouldn’t really go out on a school night, but tomorrow is a quiet morning for my news publication as the Islamic countries are on their weekend days off – so I can get away with writing a little less on Thursday evenings, knowing that the main audience wont wake up until 7am (UK time) when Europe starts working. That gives me space to write stuff quickly on Friday morning to fill the gap.

The downside is that my Islamic customers expect more topical news on their first day back to work – which is a Sunday, so I have to work Sunday mornings to make up for it.

I remember moving back to the UK as a kid, and finding it very confusing that the calendars all started with Sunday as the first day of the week – as I was used to – but that we didn’t go to school on a Sunday.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
