There’s a fascinating documentary about the history of the Berlin wall – from the perspective of the rabbit population located between East and West. If you live in Germany you can watch the whole film here: Mauerhase
Alternatively watch it in parts on youtube.


Many Queenslanders and Victorians in Australia have been ‘up shit creek‘ quite literally ie ‘in dire circumstances’ with the recent widespread flooding. You can help and get a cool tea towel in the mix! Our friends at Third Drawer Down are donating half of the proceeds from their sales of Jon Campbell’s Up Shit Creek tea [...]
