Two completely unrelated news items

First: Mari’s hafla is in the newspaper!! It’s a very nice article, with some choice quotes from Mari. Here’s one:

“This was always one of those things I was going to do when I lost weight, when I became that perfect person I was always going to be,” she said. “Then I decided I would give myself a break and try it. That’s when I discovered that this is a style of dance really open to everyone – all body types, all ages, all sizes and all levels of experience.”

Secondly, Ed quotes an article in full (and doesn’t link it, but I found it by googling, and it’s here) about pitting respected auction houses against each other in a high-risk game of janken for millions of dollars in profit. Just goes to show that there is strategy to rock, paper, scissors.
