Since setting up the No Tall Poppies blog in October 2008, over 38,000 visitors have come by to read our posts and to linger over our stories. In April. 2009, stories on The Idler page were read by over 700 people, in addition to the 50,000 who read them in The Swan Magazine each month.
We are now distributing them on line at Stories My NanaTells?
There is a range of stories (not all of which have been published in The Swan Magazine) to review from the list on the right hand side of the page
For instance: Do you know that an internationally renowned physicist from Long Island invented the Kippon (using Velcro (R) hooks to keep the yarmulke or kipah (Jewish ritual skullcap) firmly on the heads of Jewish boys, so that they could play basketball?

It’s a really hilarious “investigative” story, and I’m thrilled to be mentioned along with the authors of a number of very prominent Velcro (TM) applications!
With many thanks for your message & story,
PS: Internet makes our continents so close, as if they never split…
