Testing Zemanta

Source: Wikipedia

Thanks to a plug from TechCrunch we just installed the Zemanta Firefox extension which has the ability to look intelligently at blog content as you write it and decide what to do with it; add the most likely links to the text, builds links to related stories, all of which you can then edit.

The demo looks great but they're still in alpha so lets see if this blog gets Zemified just as well. Try it yourself, if you're on Blogger, WordPress or TypePad.

Surprise donations

This morning I woke up to mail, nothing new there, we still receive the odd piece of paper through our mailbox but when I opened this particular letter I just wasn't ready for its contents.

.. are a locally run company who manufacture components for farming equipment. R S Hall Ltd, B Smith Ltd and my wonderful Sambuca-buddy & Director, Sophie Hall, have all generously donated a very large amount to go towards the sustainable development work AVIF will carry out this Summer, as well as promoting the new community interest company, KO2 (Biking).

We all want to express our gratitude, the volunteers and our contacts all over Kenya.

to you and yes, the money will most definitely "do some good", Sophie!

Easter or Christmas?

This blog is mainly for the kids in Kenya, and all our friends and contacts there.
This Easter morning North Yorkshire woke up to this ..

The photos are necessary because, unlike our Canadian friends, this snowfall will only last until lunchtime. The sun is already shining and my son's snowman might not be around by late afternoon.

AVIF wishes a peaceful Easter holiday for all.
