If you go down to the woods today…..

….you may meet one of these. I don't know if it's for real, but I do know that John Deere, the company behind the insect, do make very sensible tractors and stuff like that. Although seeing the contraption they have created seems to beg the question: Have their engineers and designers been munching a few magic mushrooms down in the depths of the woods? Programmers get involved in Open Source stuff, tractor designers, instead, go about dreaming up and building super weird beasties in their spare time.

Boy, would I love one of these things. Wouldn't it be fun to mosey on down to the supermarket in one? Or pick up the kids from school? ' Let's go for a little walk', as the words to an old song go.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

If I've got you in the mood for some more examples of wierdness, why not check out this article in the Register.

What's this entry got to do with Italy? Nothing, zilch, zero – apart from the fact that it was written in the Living Museum. And, well, hey – it is MY blog!!

Italia.it isn’t

It was supposed to have been a shop window to Italy, a tourism web portal par excellence, but it has turned out to be a 7 million Euro white elephant. If you try to visit, www.italia.it, you won’t see too much. All I’ve been getting is server timeouts. Brutta figura time. UPDATED July 2009.

Spicy Terre d’Italia Toma Piemontese Cheese

The other day my other half turned up with an unusual cheese product, a jar of Terre d’Italia Toma Piedmontese cheese in spicy oil. This slightly spicy Toma cheese was very good, so I bought another jar the other day. Really though, I don’t think it would be that difficult to have a go at making this yourself.
