  1. 1960s videos of London

    Some great videos of London in the 1960s.


  1. Why French Parents Are Superior by Pamela Druckerman -

    This crazy “French method” of parenting… isn’t it also known as “common sense”? if this is supposed to be eye-opening I now understand why so many small kids seem to do whatever they like. (via Kottke)

  2. Local councils have right to say their prayers, says Eric Pickles | Society | The Guardian

    Wow, I had no idea lots of councils have (Christian) prayers as part of their meetings. Nuts. it’s like living in America.

    @matthewward @benterrett Is the problem that there are too many People Like Us, or not enough? It’s a tricky balance.
