"The air con is down with a fever" a different way of saying there are issues. It is nicely worded without it becoming an apology.

"connecting plants & people since 1859"- Singapore Botanic Gardens, a photo by ellen forsyth on Flickr.
This was on one of the entrance gates to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The gardens were very well used, with lots of people out and about, using the gardens in the way which worked for this.
I liked the way that this statement was worded - "connecting plants & people since 1859"

This sign was at the entry to a walking trail. It was the only opportunity to obtain water on the trail. I like that they cut to the critical idea - and went for the symptoms. I think it is an excellent sign.

What are your goals for 2013? I'm looking forward to using my drill & driving to Mars' Mount Sharp #DareMightyThings
— Curiosity Rover (@MarsCuriosity)
I saw this on twitter earlier today, and I have been thinking about it. Lots of other people have been thinking about it too. I collected some of the tweets in Storify.
I like it because it is about trying, daring, which is more extreme, more risky. We might fail, we might stuff up, and even more excitingly we might learn some amazing things because we dared to do mighty things and they worked out differently to what we, and others, expected. That is the bonus for me - different, and yet often better outcomes.
Yes, we need to plan, work hard and all of those things, but we need to take risks without always being totally sure of the outcome, and without re-writing the outcome so it looked like we planned it that way. I know this can be hard, very hard.
I think #DareMightyThings is exciting - I am starting to think about what the mighty (and not so mighty) things I may dare.
2 January addition - don't forget that you can #daremightythings in collaboration - as often more amazing things can be done by working together than individually. It needs a mix - some things by yourself and some things with others.
