I remember asking my mother, who grew up in the 30s & 40s, about the Boots library, and she said, of course, that’s where we all got our weekly novels. At the time, Boots was as much associated with reading as it was with Calamine lotion and Friars Balsam & Syrup of Figs.

The unexpectedly delightful history of the Christmas Cracker begins in the 1840s, when a young English confectioner & baker called Tom Smith, handsome & inventive with his own shop on Goswell Road in Clerkenwell, travelled to France for business.

An Alphabet of Otters — by — spelling a liquid language of curve, turn, sleek skin, bubble skein... “Otter enters water without falter, such a supple slider out of holt and into water...”

Interesting in ? The folk from are running an outreach programme aimed at getting more communities involved with repairing things rather than binning them. For more information see their pamphlet:

Today & I went to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where four new levels including the children's ward now carry The Lost Words' art & spells. Goldfinches charming down corridors, starlings murmurating, herons flying to roost, a book become a building...

Word of the day: "coorie" - to hunker down, crouch, nestle, snuggle in, especially when it's cold, dark & hostile outside (Scots). A winter activity, then, chiefly -- though one might "coorie down" to weather out other kinds of adversity.

This is a detailed, fascinating, and disturbing read. The title sounds sensationalized. It's much less so (for immuno-compromised patients) than I'd like it to be.

Sassafras albidum are heterophyllous- having different shaped leaves occurring on the same plant. Additionally, you'll often find almost every shade of foliage displayed as well!
