Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Later. See THIS BBC report about the milk being thrown away as contracts fail with food chains like coffee shops that have closed down. You might remember a bit of history called the Milk Marketing Board. Founded in 1933 to organise and regulate the production of milk it functioned well until the 19...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Yesterday was another nice day.... This morning first thing we had 50% scattered high cloud backlit by a super moon. Later as we went out the cloud was more scattered with large clear patches. We've had a pleasant walk on a calm, mild morning. Not a soul about only a few cars. The glass is steady on...

Re: Wildlife Corner

Some of you may remember my story about the tide of rats leaving London Road Station in Manchester when the old stables were being demolished. Rats and stables go together and when you remove the horses or the stables the rats have to move to pastures new. They can do it in tides or individually and...

"Mobs being fired up by religious leaders and seeking out innocent women to kill." Exactly right Tiz.

Pecking orders and exploitation. It gets complicated doesn't it. Perhaps all are exploited but some less than others. Even the most poverty stricken or socialist societies have underclasses.

There is no politics at the moment. Covid19 has completely taken over all political processes and the media has not helped by acquiescing in this. Add the fact that the House isn't sitting, Johnson is in Intensive Care and it's Easter and you have a perfect media arena but not one for politics. This...
