What do think of the new look?

I decided that my blog could do with a change as it has had the same theme (look) for a few years now. I’m not sure though as I really do like the old theme. So now I have decided to create a poll to see what you think. Please tell me if you like the new theme better or prefer the old theme by taking this poll, thank you.

Unsolved riddles

I have posted these riddles before but they remain unsolved. Can you crack them?

Riddle 1.

Riddle 2.

Riddle 3.

This is a most unusual paragraph. How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so ordinary, you’d think nothing was wrong with it. Actually, nothing is wrong with it, but it is not as ordinary as you think. If you think about it for a bit you will find what is truly unusual. So what is it?

 

Please post your answer as a comment below, good luck 🙂
