Purely for you entertainment and edification. If you wish to, post a question you would like me to answer.

1) LA Times slide show, This Week in Pictures – http://tinyurl.com/6ztns9v

a. A four-month-old Luwak civet is tempted by some red coffee beans at the BAS Coffee plantation in Tapaksiring. Kopi luwak, the world’s most expensive and lowest-production coffee, is made from the beans after they have been eaten and passed through the digestive tract of the animal.

Kopi Luwak coffee cost around $300. This is what is looks like when harvested, sorta kinda looks like….nough said.

b. At the other extreme we have mud cakes some Haitians have to dine on.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti — A woman rests next to a pot of dried mud cookies. The cookies are made of dirt, salt and vegetable shortening and are one of very few options the poorest Haitians have to stave off hunger.

c. My new hero is Cyril Wood. At 87 he was oldest competitor at the United Kingdom’s Cold Water Swimming Championship. Okay he is a tad crazy but I see that as a positive. Here he takes a towel after taking part in the male heads-up breaststroke. Check out those trunks. 🙂

2) Comedian Miranda Hart won the British People Comic awards for people’s choice vote, best actress and best new comedy. The following video shows why.

Warning – It does have some naughty bits, well it is British, but no nudity, thank god.
