Blinking worm image My name is Brian Paavo.  I'm a worm guy!  But there's not just one, there are a couple of hundred other wormguys and wormladies out there.  I'm a marine scientist who specialises in polychaetes, the most diverse class of annelid worms, but really I love almost everything to do with the largest habitat on Earth, the seafloor!  I especially enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for this magnificent place with students and professionals interested in using the scientific process for their own discoveries.  On this website you can learn a bit more about some seafloor animals and how we learn about marine environments by observing them.  Half the fun of any adventure is gettting there, so you'll also see some of the technologies we use in the lab and under the water.  You will also find, of course, pictures, resources, and fun facts about some of my favourite seafloor critters!

    greni.kiratu@yandex.com - tumblr fairy lightsare an extremely popular decoration at Christmas, from colourful lights strung around the tree to icicle-like blue lights hanging from window ledges and roof edges. Everyone loves them, and they are relatively cheap to run, especially the newer LED lamps, so here are some great ideas how you can enjoy fairy lights all year round, not merely at Christmas. Create a Gleaming Flower Display You can produce a stunning visual screen using silk or real flowers laced with beautiful fairy lights. Find an unusually shaped branch or two and pop them in an eye catching vase. Then wrap around some colourful lights and educate you with a multitude of fake flowers. Pick battery lighting when possible with the battery case invisible inside the vase, which will look much better than using a cable trailing from the vase to the wall. For an elegant display, you could try white flowers with clear or pale blue fairy lighting, or for something completely more eye-catching choose a aerosol of multicoloured blooms with equally colourful fairy lighting. These kinds of are just some of the many things that can be done with fairy lights. From red lighting to set a romantic mood at Valentines to sparkling white lights at Christmas, these are exquisite for any occasion and purpose. When you want to beautify the ceiling net illumination is ideal and extremely quick and easy to install, creating the effect of a starry night sky right above your head. With regard to outdoors events when there will not be a energy socket at hand, or if you simply want to minimise the number of cables on show, electric battery lighting allows you to bring the magic of those twinkling lights to any celebration, in any location, at any time.
