That the internet and the world wide web are not the same thing.
Today is the 20th birthday of the world wide web. It was invented by British scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee.
Put very simply, the internet is a network which enables computers to connect with each other.
The web is a big piece of software on the internet which uses hypertext transfer protocol (http) to allow you and me to dash about all over the place.
Here's a handy diagram showing how the internet works. No, I have no idea what Gopherspace is.
Anyway, I am profoundly grateful to Sir Tim for coming up with the web as I would not be writing this blog without it.
What's that all about?
Is it a new strategy to beat the All Blacks by tricking them into thinking we are them?
It won't work, and if they don't change it back to white I shall be supporting Wales in the World Cup.
A supper of spiced grilled lamb.
An onion, a couple of cloves of garlic, a couple of teaspoons of ras-al-hanout spice blend, bit of salt, some olive oil and a tablespoon of honey all blended together in the food processor. The lamb left to marinade in this mixture for an afternoon then grilled on a hot griddle.
Served with some minty yogurt.
To boil a gammon joint in cider, apply a crust of dark brown sugar, stud with cloves and bake for tomorrow's homecoming supper. We will eat it with baked potatoes and homemade chutney.
Also planning to ice the chocolate almond cake I made today for George's birthday. We didn't have time to eat a birthday cake before they left so tomorrow is a cake day.
I baked a large batch of blueberry muffins too.
Looking forward to their return
Hoping for dry weather.
I shall have a lot of washing to get dry.
