http://lenashareef.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/girlwithabook   two girls have had the idea of asking people to send in photos of themselves reading books in support of Malala Yousafzai the girl who was shot by the taliban because of her belief in the right to education.  I applaud the girls – Olivia and ???? – and think the way they have made their appeal for photos in such a dignified and peaceful show of support is absolutely great.  Girl power at its best.

I also saw these today on my Twitter feed – they relate to the above

About apiarylandlord

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience. That is probably all you need to know until I work out how secure this blog is. Great fan of recycling - see ilovefreegle.org to find your local group. Save things from landfill. Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.
