Before checking out the news of the day, I still like to scan through the MailOnline in a morning as, apart from the often totally misleading headlines, non-stories, obsession with certain Z-listers and sensationalism, there is usually an episode or two in the games ‘guess the missing words’ or ‘rearrange the following to form a coherent sentence’.
According to the MailOnline: “Revealed: ‘Lost’ pyramid city uncovered in the heart of Mexico using lasers had as many buildings as Manhattan 1,000 years ago”. Fascinating revelation….ignoring the fact that Manhattan didn’t actually exist 1,000 years ago of course.
Airlines appear to be clamping down on ’emotional support animals’ after people have turned up to check-in with giant peacocks, turkeys and other assorted creatures. This is despite, in many cases, the passenger being in possession of a valid doctor’s letter certifying the animal as a ‘comfort animal’.
I thought this tree looked quite good set against a cloudy sky. The location was La Viñuela.
I watched as a ‘flower seller’ approached a man who was taking a photo with his phone and then spent several minutes tapping him on the arms and shoulders with one hand – the one with the flower in it – while her other hand whizzed in and out of the man’s pockets like the Artful Dodger on steroids.
I turned the corner and there was Lola out for a stroll. A very friendly, albeit large, piggy who enjoys her walks and she responds to her name, running (or waddling) back to her owner when he calls her.
Ryanair always seems to be tinkering with policies or coming up with new ideas, good and bad. This time it is hand luggage…again.
The annual Feria de las Maravillas de Maro – Maro Feria – officially kicks off on Wednesday September 6th at 19:00 and continues until September 9th 2017. The group ‘Brass Town’ will be marching and playing on the streets to start proceedings. You can find the full programme (in Spanish) here
Something different has sprung up in the former premises of a Chinese Bazaar in avendida Castilla Perez (between calle Diputación and calle El Barrio) rather than the usual sports bar/souvenir/bags/accessories shops we are accustomed to seeing appear at monotonously regular intervals.
Wow, someone must have actually discovered a way to clean clothes so they don’t have to be discarded after a single use. Must find out more about this, could save me a fortune. Or maybe make me a fortune if I can come up with some sort of automated process…
