New parents can be so tiresome with their obsession in showing you photos of their newborns, don't you find? True to form, I couldn't resist posting today's photo of mother hen squashed flat over her brood of five two-day-old chicks, with one peeking out for a look at the world.

And now for some really reassuring news from the BBC news website: even armaments production is going green.
“Weapons manufacturer BAE Systems launched a range of 'environmentally friendly' munitions... with these immortal words: 'Lead used in ammunition can harm the environment and pose a risk to people'.” (pub. online 17.3.07)
…which has echoes of the product warning “this product may contain nuts” written on the side of a pack of peanuts! Strange world we live in, n’est pas?
