My 200th post! 
Who'd 'ave thowt it?
Coincidentally, Wikipedia celebrates its 10th anniversary today. Until I visited the site today, I hadn't realized how many and varied sister projects the site has.
Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikiversity, Wikiquote and Wikisource to name a few...
Yes, I joined Wikipedia a while ago and have even ventured to add a bit to it when doing OU SD226 course and found an article asking for references.

Thankfully, OH has his meds and I've bought him a BP monitor (blood pressure) similar to the one at the surgery. Also it has a memory so he could store recordings but (precious Luddite) that part of tech eludes him.

Time for a laugh...
BP as in British Petroleum has made headline news today as it has made a deal with Rosfnet...Russian state giant oil company. What's so amusing?
 a quote from...
Edward Markey, a senior Democrat in the House of Representatives, said: "BP once stood for British Petroleum. With this deal, it now stands for Bolshoi Petroleum..."
Now to me Boshoi is the Bolshoi Ballet, theatre and opera Company! Also, the word 'Bolshoi' means 'Grand'.
