Did you know that the green lawn that is so common today was originally a way for the landed gentry to show off their wealth?

Lawns are definitely not helping us.


The curb cut effect: for example, media descriptions right here on Mastodon help people who use screen readers, but they are also useful for explaining the joke for people who don’t get it, for translations of text, and for copy-pasting what would otherwise be just an image of text.

On the way back from our Easter Weekend break, we stopped off at West Burton, a beautiful little Yorkshire Dales village.
