Today it was Ruth M’s birthday, so a load of guys from Intension did a treasure hunt around town! I was a quality but tireing experience.
The way it worked was that when Ruth got home, she found an envelope with the first clue in it, and a piece of paper telling her what was going on!
At this point it could have gone terribly wrong if she hadnt seen the bit of paper! We were all at this point scattered around town!
There were 10 clues in all pointing to places around town with a person, a present and another clue!
Ruth also only had 45 min to get to all of them, so it was also a bit of an endurance race!
Steve and Stevo came up with the clues, there are a few in jokes which you may struggle with so I have added a few hints! See if you can get them!:
Clue number 1 (Extra clue, one of the only places in the N4 with one of these)
This is your CUE to start the race
If you have the BALLS to look in this place.

Clue number 2
Next to a palace not fit for a queen
Under or near the music machine.
Clue number 3
Not far from the wheel we could go for a meal
The biggest guitar with sex appeal
Clue number 4 (I doubt youll get this one! As you dont know Owen Crane, or where Ruth’s Dad Works)
Take the first name of a man called crane
Work for your daddy is one and the same
Clue number 5
A passage where knowledge and government meet
From Albert to Peter its barely a street
Clue number 6
TRains from here depart no more
At the top of the stEps by the glass front door

Look even Closer how well caN you spell

Clue number 9

And now we come to the journeys end.

The result is in another square
So donâ€™t pull the answer from out of the air!
Breakfast again tomorrow, so check out the N4 Breakfast Blog for a new review around 12!
I have only just discovered a cool flash movie developed for the Museum of Media and History in Florida.
The film is a fictional story of how they predict the news and media to be in 2014, and they concepts and ideas they use are all plausible!
Take a look and let me know what you think!
…on this site! I checked out the stats for the last 13 days and noticed firefox is in the lead with 32.9% of people using it to view this site. If the ‘unknown’ % is IE hiding its identity firefox is actually quite far behind… lets hope not!
1/3/6 – 13/3/6:
|MS Internet Explorer||No||1703||32.5 %|

I have restarted my ongoing quest to grow a coffee plant / tree and have bought a load of green coffee beans.
This time I have invested in a propagator which should vastly improve the chances of seedlings because it is a self watering one! I should have 40 coffee seedlings in the next month!
Anyway, I have a load of excess seeds which I’m selling off so if your interested in trying to beat me to a coffee plant, you can buy some from the links below!!
