What we learned this week

This week I have discovered the following interesting things about Luton:

  • Luton has more cab drivers per person than any other town in the UK.
  • The biggest employer in Luton is the airport. Peak oil will be particularly bad news for the town.
  • Luton has historically been a centre for bee-keeping and honey production, and is home to a bee-keeping school. I find this rather inspiring, not least because it was ‘national bee week‘ this week in New Zealand. I have spent the week wondering aloud about bee-keeping to my rather disconcerted wife.  (The answer it no. At least not in the garden)
