Brick-and-mortar is just getting started 💳


Startups are saving retail.

Brick-and-mortar spending is expected to grow by $36 billion over the next four years, and e-commerce by $50 billion, according to a study by Deloitte. But as new technology closes the gap between online browsing and in-store buying, spending could go even higher.

The great ceiling drop-in


This morning, after years of water leaking through my house’s ceiling from the bathroom, and a massive crack in the landing which my landlord never bothered with, part of the plaster gave way. There is now dust and lethal chunks of plaster all over the area near my front door. Luckily, no-one got hurt, human or cat.

4th of July Potbelly


I’m British so the whole Independence Day thing doesn’t matter to me personally. But it is a beautiful event, celebrating hope and freedom. Tonnes of red, white and blue fireworks, and ‘lots of good eats’. This GIF came from a competition by Westfield Stratford City, a shopping mall in London, offering the chance to win a meal for four at Potbelly Sandwich Shop.
