A bit of a list

Robert Macfarlane - The Old Ways - a journey on foot.  Fabulous book. Which includes the Spanish saying - "To walk is to gather treasure!" Dust jacket says: " ... the book folds together natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology and literature." Halfway through - it feels like a book that could/should be read again.

Especially note, from Robert Macfarlane's book,
Miguel Ángel Blanco. Biblioteca del Bosque

"Bees of the Invisible", essay in Artesian journal by Vaclav Cilek. Similar subject to above. Unfortunately no longer available to buy, so will have to scout further.

Myrrh - very good for treatment of oral issues.

Liquid metal batteries - http://www.ambri.com/

Blueberries ripening rapidly and sales again to the point of picking, packing, selling.  Literally queues to buy - nice, but pressure.
