Quick Links 5th January 2016

Each week (no quick links post last week due to Christmas etc. so I’ve incorporated items from last week here too) I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read or just sparked my interest in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

    Hi, Alan. Sound like Great Britain is having a terrible time with flooding. We’re praying that it’s not adversely affecting you, where you are.

    1. Hi David, Although we’ve had significantly more rain than usual, we are, compared to some, relatively dry. No significant flooding in our part of the UK so far and we’ve not been directly affected. The worst of the flooding is to the north of us, in Cumbria, Lancashire and Scotland, where many people have sadly had their homes / businesses flooded, many just before and over the Christmas holidays.
