Pinterest is one of those fantastic parts of the internet where the small efforts of thousands of people combine to make a superb resource. In the case of Pinterest, a place where you can find quality , interesting pictures of all sorts based on all sorts of themes, from fashion to fruit, from models (both types) to mechanism.

To make it easy for anyone interested to share the pictures from my site. I've added a new feature. Hover over any of the pictures and a 'Pin It' button appears allowing you to easily pin pictures from this site onto your Pinterest boards. I hope you find it a useful feature!

Google - the fount of all knowledge

Today's picture on the Google homepage is a picture based on the locomotive created by Richard Trevithick who was born 13 April 1771. It's a fantastic picture but has a minor fault. The gears wouldn't turn! If they'd checked the gear section of my website they would have realised that any ring of gears with an odd number of gears just won't turn! 

#1 Daughter says that I'm a 'geek' for pointing this out. A compliment I'm sure that she didn't intend :-)

Second entry

This is another blog entry, this time with a picture. I needed to add this entry to see how it all fits together when you have more than one entry. I should probably add another one after this though I'm not really sure what I could write about.

Let's see how paragraphs are displayed. This picture makes me want to go and get a coffee.
