Life (and Blogger again!!)
Have you noticed that blogger’s new reading facility for following blogs doesn’t show half the photos. So when you get, for example, a note that Dawn Treader has posted an article about Coltsfoot you get a helpful little note saying that her post includes [image: CIMG7863]. Like Wow! How helpful is that. I might resist going to a post with an image numbered 7863 but her Greetings from the Past blog had the much more excitingly numbered [image: 005.2A-001]. I had to go there!
Life (and eyes again)
Life demands a day or two away from blogging and I come back to find dozens and dozens of blog posts in my (new style- ugh) reading list. How can I catch up with everyone? The simple answer is not to bother and just to miss a couple of days but I do so enjoy people’s posts and I hate not knowing how everyone is getting on. I must find some sort of system for doing this. Either that or invent a Time Machine.
I would have a lot more time if I didn’t have to go back and correct every sentence I type. I’m thinking of getting an eye patch for my left eye to wear when I’m typing – that way I would only see one keyboard. I don’t suppose anyone out there has any experience of wearing one to stop double vision? I worry a bit about my left eye getting even more lazy and the fact that it doesn’t work properly already has me walking into doors, etc. because of miscalculating distances / angles.
According to the Cairngorms Wildcat Project previously unknown populations of Scottish wildcats are living in the Cairngorms National Park, conservationists have discovered. Their habitats have been identified by camera traps which captured images of the animals across the park and beyond. But the species remains under threat because of cross-breeding with domestic and feral cats. The Scottish wildcat is larger and much fiercer than its domestic cousin. It is estimated there are only about 400 left in the wild.
This photo was not taken in the wild but at the Chestnut Centre Conservation & Wildlife Park.
The garden has been a delight throughout March and April and I just haven’t had the time to post my photos on my garden blog. I may manage to do so in the future but in the meantime I thought I’d just put a post on this week to show some of the things that are out just at this moment.
Mouldy Pot Noodles or the Best Songwriters Ever?
A new music award has been presented in Liverpool to highlight the city's thriving music scene and prove there is more to Liverpool than The Beatles. The inaugural Get Into This Award, named after a music blog run by writer Peter Guy, went to the delicate and hypnotic four-piece band Loved Ones. The award has been dubbed the "Scouse Mercury" after the Mercury Music Prize. That's fine so far but I wasn't overly in accord with Guy's comment that the spirit of The Beatles "hovers over Liverpool like a mouldy Pot Noodle". Long may the spirit of The Beatles hover over us. They gave so much to the music scene and while I appreciate the need to celebrate the new I don't see why we have to disrespect the old.
Time for a cup of tea… Bye.
