New Years Eve at the London Eye 2020

Published

on

To end 2020  we have another real life appointment that has become virtual due to the pandemic. The New Year’s Eve fireworks were canceled last August but we must somehow mark the arrival of 2021. Especially since we are all fed up with 2020.

The London Eye from 4 pm tomorrow will show us on its social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) a light show. To avoid crowds this show was recorded earlier, so tomorrow the famous London panoramic wheel will be quiet and dark. But you can pretend that everything is normal and that you are at the Embankment in London to celebrate the arrival of the new year for three minutes. Or something like that. 

The three-minute show will remind us of the major events of the year, from blue lights to remember Clap for Our Carers, a succession of white lights to honor Captain Sir Tom Moore and his NHS fundraising efforts, many colors to represent Global Pride, a green and blue design to meditate on climate change. When the lights go out, it’s all about Black Lives Matter and the need to continue the discussion on equality.

Worked in many sectors including recruitment and marketing. Lucky to have found a soulmate who was then taken far too soon. No intention of moving on and definitely not moving to Thailand for the foreseeable future. Might move forward. Owned by a cat.

Ben & Jerry have launched an ice cream for dogs

Published

Now your dog doesn’t have to look at you with envy while your are eating your ice cream and you don’t have to feel guilty. Ben & Jerry have launched two flavours for their new line of ice cream for dogs:Pontch’s Mix and Rosie’s Batch, both names after two employees dogs.

Ben & Jerry  started in 1978 founded by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield allows dogs in the office and therefore they play a big role in this company. 

Pontch’s Mix has peanut butter and pretzel while Rosie’s Batch has pumpkin and mini cookies.  As dogs are lactose intolerant these ice cream don’t contain dairy products but use sunflower butter which is easily digested by our canine friends.  The recipes were created with the help of vets and experts in dogs nutrition. 

Unfortunately for the time being these dogs treats are only available in the US but hopefully they might come to delight British dogs soon.

kindle challenge

The Kindle Challenge is a new initiative by Amazon to encourage people to buy and read Kindle books, it’s an interesting concept that Kobo started years ago but then abandoned. 

Basically every month there will be some challenges and you will need to take part and complete them to gain badges. You can also earn credits to buy Kindle Books.  The challenges so far has been easy like reading a book, buying a book or subscribing to Kindle Unlimited. 

There is obviously a large marketing element but the Kindle Challenge can be fun for users by gamifying the experience users can be motivated to read more. 

How do I take part in the Kindle Challenge?

So far it is at a kind of pilot stage and you must have an invitation, there will be more invites sent in the next few months. Sadly you must live in the United States to take part for the time being. The Challenge might be extended to other countries in future, although there are no details yet.

As we are not able to go to the Natural History Museum we can at least visit the Fantastic Beasts virtual exhibition thanks to Google Arts & Culture.

It must be said that despite everything this virtual version is quite interesting. There are different things to watch, strange animals to discover and different activities suitable for all ages.

There are articles about weird animals that look great but really exist, about conservation, about legends, There are fantastic animals to color, a quiz and you can create your own fantastic animals too.

We also find a gallery dedicated to the history of mythological animals and  a puzzle. In conclusion, it is really worth taking a virtual trip to this exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London.
