The Internet

Hi guys!
Today I'm going to take a break from my photography posts, and talk about something we all use, the
internet. In fact we spend 28% of our day on it! Average teenagers spend 27 HOURS A WEEK on it!! We uderestimate how much time we spend on the internet. And just to be an annoying smarty-pants, you are actually using the internet right now. (Sorry about that, that was lame!) Here is a list of cool or weird facts about the internet:
  1. China has treatment camps for internet addicts.
  2. There is high speed internet on the way up  Mount Everest.
  3. Just 15% of adults in the U.S. do not use the internet!
  4. Researchers are thinking of adding internet addiction to the list of mental disoreders.
  5. 9 million adults in Britain have never used the internet.
  6. 50% of internet users will quit waiting for a video to load after 10 seconds.
  7. One third of Italians have nevet used the internet.
  8. The "Fi" in "WiFi" doesn't mean anything. The creators just called it that because it rhymed with "HiFi"!
  9. In 2010, Finland became the first country to make internet access a legal right.

Today's quotes are:

I love these two! I couldn't pick between the two, the first one is to do with the topic of this post and I just laughed at the second.

The facts from the list today all come from the same website: Internet facts

Ginger and Chocolate Biscuits

Hi guys!
This is a really nice recipe, which I found in a cookbook in my kitchen (a really old one without a publisher written on it!) and I came across a recipe for 'biscuits'. They could have came up with something more original! Anyway, I tried that recipe but the biscuits were very plain and boring, so I decided to spice it up a little (I actually used spices) ;)

Here is the recipe I use (which is half from the book and half from me!)

Makes about 18 biscuits (it depends on the cookie cutter you use, really)

For the biscuits:
350g plain flour
3 teaspoons of ground ginger, or 4 teaspoons if you're a ginger lover!
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
100g butter
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of golden syrup

For the chocolate icing (don't really know what to call it!):
165g milk/dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
Handful of sprinkles

Heat your oven to 180C, 350F gas mark 4.
Storage:Keep in an airtight container and eat within six days.

1. Dip a paper towel in some m…

Autumn Touches for your Bedroom ;)

Hi guys... So, well this is awkward. I've been gone for WAY too long, I think the last time I posted was in June. That's 3 MONTHS!!! I'm sorry guys!! I had an extremely busy summer, and I honestly had more important things to be doing than sitting on my laptop, typing. But now that its officialy AUTUMN  (WHOOP WHOOP), and I'm back at school, I feel like it's time to start this up again.

I'm so excited to be back, and what better time to come back than in autumn? I mean, who doesn't love autumn. If you're new around here, I love listsing things. But most of you know that already. Here's a list of reasons why I personally love autumn. (Or fall, which is an awesome name for it hehe)
