Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

The BBC series called The Reassembler is shown on You Tube. The Reassembler is James May, the host, a Brit, and he takes things apart and puts things back together with a running narrative. He takes apart everyday objects into “hundreds of bits”, puts them back together again, and then makes sure they work. The first episode took apart a lawnmower, “300+ lawnmowery type bits”. The show just completed its third season and is very popular. He’s reassembled food mixers, a toy train set, a telephone, an electric guitar and many more items! He is very funny. Each episode is 30 minutes.

A good flashmob creates magic. This one in Germany to ‘Stairway to Heaven’ by Led Zeppelin is wonderful. I love the feeling of community that a flashmob inspires, it’s quite moving.
