Twittering

I finally setup a Twitterfeed so now you can get notified of any Booooooom updates via Twitter! This is the internet equivalent of us becoming best friends! If you want to Tweet about Booooooom that would be awesome!

    its essentially a stock ticker for single sentence updates from people/sites that you’re interested in. you can set it up so it goes straight to your phone, etc. handy for getting the latest news as quick as possible depending on who you choose to follow.

    I equate it (Twitter) to a big party, but everyone’s silent, and every once in a while someone yells something interesting.

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
