Reading for a Foggy Evening

Need something to read on a grey November evening?

The BBC website is one that I return to again and again. The recent scandals about the BBC have been worrying – to say the least, but I can still only praise this institution for its wide spectrum of informative articles, blogs, news and views. Being an “expat” (a term I detest!) I feel this is a link to my home country reflecting the general situation and atmosphere there at the time.

Here are a few things I found this morning on bbc.co.uk which I’d like to share…

I enjoyed reading this article about some of the mysteries of nature:

I also found this history of mealtimes quite revealing:

And this article about the poorest president in the world made me very thoughtful:

If you’re in the UK, recent news about a terrible ash tree fungus will not be new to you. Here is the latest on how the disease is to be contained:

Finally, one more link, not from the BBC this time. I was made aware of this by A French Garden. Take a look at this blog about conservationist Miranda Gibson, who is despearte to save trees from logging in the Tasmanian rainforest:

Have a cosy evening reading!
