We are pretty good at inventing things in Britain, for example railways, television and jet engines. We invented cricket and soccer, but given the state of our national teams, I will gloss over those. However the latest invention to come out of the UK is a new nano-substance called graphene that was first isolated at the University of Manchester by two Russian born scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov. A feat that lead them to receive the Nobel Prize in 2010.

My next door neighbour’s child is a seven year old tech-savvy brat. You know the sort. He can reprogramme the operating system of an iPad and is the only one in the house who can operate the catch-up TV. So it was with interest that I saw that he had been given a “John Bull” printing outfit for Christmas. This is a series of small rubber letters, a wooden holder, together with a bottle of ink and a collection of coloured cards.
I don’t know about you, but I am mainly using social media to communicate with and keep an eye on my kids, who are currently scattered around the globe. I have a Twitter account, Facebook page and now a Google+ page and, I spend a few minutes each day seeing what nefarious activities they have gotten up to.
