The Boy Who Lived
"Well, Ted," said the weatherman, "I don't know about that, but it's not only the owls that have been acting oddly today. Viewers as far apart as Kent, Yorkshire, and Dundee have been phoning in to tell me that instead of the rain I promised yesterday, they've had a downpour of shooting stars! Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early -- it's not until next week, folks! But I can promise a wet night tonight. "
Mr. Dursley sat frozen in his armchair. Shooting stars all over Britain? Owls flying by daylight? Mysterious people in cloaks all over the place? And a whisper, a whisper about the Potters. . .
Mrs. Dursley came into the living room carrying two cups of tea. It was no good. He'd have to say something to her. He cleared his throat nervously. "Er -- Petunia, dear -- you haven't heard from your sister lately, have you?"
As he had expected, Mrs. Dursley looked shocked and angry. After all, they normally pretended she didn't have a sister.
"No," she said sharply. "Why?"
"Funny stuff on the news," Mr. Dursley mumbled. "Owls. . . shooting stars. . . and there were a lot of funny-looking people in town today. . . "
I would like to be here once ... Suspension Bridges Kanopi, Borneo
Suspension bridges - probably the only creation of human hands in this untouched corner of nature. Flora and fauna are striking in their diversity: flying lizards, predatory flowers, orangutans and even species not yet described by scientists. However, a walk along bridges that creak and swing at a 40-meter height, in the crowns of tropical trees, will certainly leave a much stronger impression.
I've found a great place for a picnic, who's with me? lol! Waitomo Caves, New Zealand

The most famous and popular cave among tourists is the Grotto of fireflies, whose vaults are often compared to the starry sky. All thanks to the huge number of fireflies Arachnocampa Luminosa, which can only be found in New Zealand.

Wifes and husbands
Men are lazy in the home, according to an official survey published today.
They have about six hours a week more free time than wives, but play very little part in cooking, cleaning, washing and ironing, according to the social trends survey by the central statistical office.
Nearly three quarters of married women claimed to do all or most of the housework, and among married men the proportion who admitted that their wives did all or most of the housework was only slightly lower.
The survey showed that washing and ironing was the least popular task among men, with only one per cent performing this duty, compared with 89 per cent of women, and 10 per cent sharing equally. Only 5 per cent of men prepare the evening meal, 3 per cent carry out household cleaning duties, 5 per cent household shopping, and 17 per cent wash the evening dishes.
But when household gadgets break down, repair are carried out by 82 per cent of husbands. The survey says that, despite economic problems, the majority of Britons are substantially better than a decade ago.

What is at the bottom of the Well is still unknown, scuba divers do not risk descending there - a strong current interferes.

The USA covers an area of almost 9400000 square kilometres and is twice as large as all the countries of Europe combined. It is placed in the middle of the North American continent and is washed by the Atlantic Ocean in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west. Placed between two oceans, the USA has a free access to the trade routes of the world.
The USA is divided into three areas: Eastern area - a highland. Central area - a plain, and the Western area which is mountainous. The north-western part of the USA includes five lakes. The whole central plain constitutes the basin of the Mississippi River. The Mississippi is one of the longest rivers in the world.
On the whole the USA has a continental climate. It is at the same time one of the coldest and one of the hottest countries, one of the wettest and one on the driest.
The flag of the United States is called "Stars and Stripes". The 50 stars represent the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent 13 original English colonies, which in 1776 became free and independent of England.
The USA is governed by Congress and by the President. Congress consists of the Senate (100 senators - 2 from each state) and the House of Representatives (435 Congressmen). The President, who is also the head of the government and the commander-in-chief of all the armed forces, is elected every four years.
The capital of the United States is Washington. It is situated on the Potomac River not far from the Atlantic coast. Washington is not a very large city.
