HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY FULL MOON!
The first full moon of 2022 turns full on Monday, 17 January.
I hope you all have a joyful week. Stay safe, everyone.
EDIT: Everyone check back to last week's thread to see Clare's beautiful photographs and also Lindy's lovely sunrise pics.
In reply to Annette in SoCal:
Kind regards, Ann
Just a thought
One must still have chaos in one self to be able to give birth to a dancing star. (Friedrich Nietzsche)
I have been reading about pandemics in the past. This quote from Charles Kenny’s book refers, I think, to 1300s. “Four thousand troops manned the southern border in Austria-Hungary, holding many travelers in quarantine for as long as forty-eight days, fumigating trade goods, and putting suspect goods in a warehouse. People were considered expendable enough that if they developed plague symptoms, they could be shot.”
I wonder if such drastic actions were any more successful than our constantly changing restrictions.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Bluesky2 - I just saw the TV listing and noted that Springwatch (Edit: I mean Winterwatch) is returning. Always a treat.
