I took out my wheely bins this morning and since we have been on holidays I couldn’t remember if it was recycling week or green bin week. I looked up the street and saw that most people had put out their recycling bin so I did the same. It turns out that nobody knew that it was green bin week. Everyone had copied the first person to put their bins out, who had in turn just made a guess, leading to a whole street full of smelly bins.
Last week I was in Hawaii for my brother’s wedding. We stopped in to visit the battleship Missouri in Pearl Harbour. Built in 1944 and retired in 1994, she was amongst the largest battleships ever built, massive, imposing and sporting some of the largest guns ever made.
