Smoke Signals is *stuff from a load of different print, digital and social media sources that have amused, educated or inspired me. done in “notebook haste” with minimal intros, long hyperlinks, poor grammar and zero fanfare, the intent is that in following these smoke signals you may be led on an adventure of amusement, education and inspiration yourself.
Smoke Signals takes me about 15 minutes to collate

if anyone knows of an app or an easier way of collating this list please let me know
