Carrots “Make You More Attractive”
It was revealed this morning, new research shows, that if you eat more carrots it can make you more attractive!
This morning I was asking about the secret ingredients you use when cooking. Some of the best included a spoon of sugar, crunched up crisps, tomato sauce and even cod liver oil when cooking porridge (sounds healthy; I’m not sure about the taste though!)
Finally, today is Peculiar People Day. It’s a day to pay tribute to uniquely different people and those with a peculiar talent. Rude Tube 2011 was on Channel 4 over the weekend – 100 of the most watched internet videos – and included scores of very peculiar people. If you’ve got 90 minutes to kill watch it!
RIP Gerry Rafferty
Today we said goodbye to another legend, Gerry Rafferty died yesterday aged 63, best remembered for “Stuck In The Middle With You” and, of course, “Baker Street”. The wonderful saxophone solo will live on and I played the air saxophone in tribute today.
Today is a day of Birds for bird lovers and bird watchers all over the planet. I thought you’d enjoy these bird facts:
- Nine is the total amount of yolks seen in one chicken egg.
- The only wingless bird in the world is the New Zealand Kiwi.
- Pigeons can reach speeds of 100mph.
I’ll certainly bear that last fact in mind when feeding the birds in the park next time. Woooah!
