Today I read that at the 1936 Olympics all Gold Medal winners were given an oak sapling, by the German Olympic Committee, to plant at home as a memory of the Games.
Might be nice to do something similar at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, it might also act as a small offset of the CO2 cost of the Games. Oaks wouldn't be suitable for all countries and there could be problems with Plant Import Regulations for some countries, but with a bit of effort these problems could be overcome.
Not read and learned, but saw on telly and learned....
To get rid of mould in the house..... slugs. They apparently love mould and eat it all , so bring them inside and leave them to gobble it all up.
Seems a bit like shooting yourself in the foot to avoid a war !!
Years ago I read a story from Spike Milligan about his time during WW2 when they were in a railway carriage due to ship out. One guy decided to shoot himself in the foot because he didn't want to go to war. The weapon he was carrying, in a packed compartment, was a military issue Thompson sub-machine gun. This fires a .45 ACP round at a high rate of fire and he had it set for full automatic. He shot the front of his boot off, missing his foot, and killed two soldiers opposite and wounded several others.
Not all of Spike's stories were funny.
Oh he missed the war alright.
