Ms Persnickety Snark (aka Adele) is visiting the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima this weekend and has made a very generous offer to include the details of bloggers from all over the world on some of the cranes she is leaving at the memorial, as an expression of "hope for peace and memorialising all the children that have been lost to conflict". I think it's a lovely thing to do. If you'd like to be included, leave your details on the Persnickety Snark blog by Friday morning US time.
In less peaceful news, the builders are in the final stages of levelling our house (apparently the concrete mixer arrives today, w00t!), which means more ominous creaking and cracking. Big Ginger Cat has tucked himself safely away under the bed. I'm tempted to join him.
