Cat Spotting in Street View

Stalking mice in Ely.
Here's an addictive new game...

It's cat spotting in Google Street View! Go to a random town, and virtually drive around its streets. If you find a cat, score a point! Play in real-time against friends and family!

Licking one's undercarriage in Ramsbottom.
Or if you prefer dogs, then play dog spotting instead! Other options include pitting cats against dogs - this could potentially be a form of solitaire if you're on your own. Or how about black cats versus white cats? Set a time limit of 15 minutes and you can expect realistic football-type scores (0-0, 1-0, 2-1, etc).

The two screengrabs were found in the suburbs of Ely in Cambridgeshire and Ramsbottom in Lancashire. Ironically, the brown cat was licking its Catsbottom...

If anyone spots some more kitties, let me know!

Geoff Hurst Chocolate Box Surprise

World Cup hero Geoff Hurst.
Of all the strange things to find when opening a box of Milk Tray! This old Geoff Hurst bubblegum badge was discovered attached to a heart-shaped creme fondant earlier today. Whether it was a bizarre practical joke by someone at the chocolate factory, or one of my children had placed it there to tease me, I shall probably never know.
