Things I’ve learnt today: a new Nancy Drew, e-cigarettes, and repurposed Walmarts.

1. Nancy Drew is a vampire slayer.

From”Vampire-mania has gripped River Heights, with teenage girls going wild over the new “DieLite” novels and movies. But what happens when a supposedly “real” handsome young vampire arrives on the scene? Will Nancy expose him as a fraud — or fall under his dark spell? As if that wasn’t enough– there’s something dark and sinister happening while everyone’s distracted by the vampire madness. Could this possibly be linked to what’s happening in Bayport, home of the Hardy Boys?”

2. There is such a thing as an  e-cigarette.

From Wikipedia:”An e-cigarette is an electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled vapor bearing the physical sensation, appearance, and often the flavor (with or without nicotine content) of inhaled tobacco smoke, without its odor or, ostensibly, its health risks.”

3. An abandoned Texas Walmart is now a library.

From Slate: “Minneapolis-based architects Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. breathed fresh life into the [Walmart] warehouse, about as big as two and a half football fields, late last year, when they repurposed it as the country’s largest single-story public library.”

  1. Wow!! That is one large library! hehe 🙂

  2. I’ve actually seen people use fake electronic cigarettes while on my travels. It’s odd having them smoking them during training 😛


    I wonder why other professionals don’t notice your website much m glad I found this.
