I love the Nordic Knitting Conference–I went in 2010 and it was FAN-TASTIC! I urge you to go if you love stranded knitting or want to learn it. I learned so much from the instructors who were wonderful and the folks I met there I added to my friends list immediately. I look forward to attending again later when I can. Also go check out the Ravelry group too!
I couldn’t help but remember the Friends episode where Joey pees on Monica’s leg when she got stung by a jellyfish during your story.
There IS an app for that!! (the jellyfish thing) It’s called wikiHow… it’s got survival tips, first aid instructions, that sort of thing. Some of the content is embedded in the app, and for other things it has to go to the cloud. I searched “jellyfish” and it took me to the cloud, straight to articles on what to do for jellyfish stings.
I’ve had it on my iPod Touch for ages. Unfortunately I need wifi to get the online content, but still. Next time I get attacked by a bear, I’ll know what to do. 😉
I love it! Finally, an app I “need” that I actually NEED!
I was listening to the ‘Comedy of the Week podcast’ from Radio 4 here in the UK, which this week was from a series called Brian Gulliver’s Travels by Bill Dare. It’s in the same vein as Swift’s satire but using modern subjects. In this week’s episode, Brian has returned from Chamanoa, the islands of Naturists / Nurturists; one believes in genetically altering their children to give them a leg up in life, the other believes in education. Brian makes a pithy comment that this discussion is still be fought where he comes from, the arena being the middle-class diner party where the argument peters out in favour of discussions concerning kitchen extensions.
I thought you and other listeners might like to know about it, and listen for yourselves. The modern themes actually helped me to experience how Swift’s satire must have felt to his audience in their time. It seems there are 2 series of Brian Gulliver’s Travels, more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Gulliver's_Travels. I downloaded it from my itunes, but it’s on audible.co.uk too
