What’s on the the dot tv in Tuvalu tonight?

Did you know that one of the smallest countries in the world; Tuvalu make a large part of their income from selling the rights to the .tv internet address extension? They make around $4 million per year. They also make a lot from selling stamps and coins. It is a group of nine islands in the Pacific Ocean. They have recently put out a plea to neighbouring nations for fresh water; currently their only source is rain water and it hasn’t rained substantially for more than six months. New Zealand and Australia have been supplying water and equipment. Read about their terrible plight here on the BBC.

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
