Amazing city WI-FI

London is great and… wired! From my place at Barbican all the way down Charterhouse Street, through Holborn Circus, Chancery Lane, Fleet Street and the Strand there is almost uninterrupted WI-FI juice through the Cloud. Convenient and above all free!

The evil sheriff of Nottingham

There are reasons to believe that Robin Hood’s evil sheriff of Nottingham was called Philip Mark and was one of the foreigners John brought to England in 1207-1208 to supply key royal offices when he grew suspicious of his northern barons. Philip was from the region of Touraine in France.
