I guess you could call this my 'Blog', I
have never really understood the concept of a Blog,
except that it is where people have their say and it is a word mentioned on the news more often than not these days.
I very seldom read the papers, I find it incredibly depressing, very bad for my blood pressure and the feeling of helplessness when reading about some issues gets me into such a state that it is better for all concerned if I just stick my head in the sand and ignore what is going on, the problem with sticking ones head in the sand, is that it often leaves ones butt exposed, and exposed butts normally get kicked.
Reading the Letters page in the Herald on the 31st October 2006 was for me a kick in the rear, more specifically the cutting down of two old fig trees where egrets were nesting, I was appalled years ago when they cut down the other trees due to the egrets, who were there long before anyone else, to see that this has happened again, and all in the name of profit makes me so mad that I could not even sleep thinking about it.
I remember when the trees were cut down around the school years ago, due to the mess and noise, well the trees have gone, but not the mess, or the noise, but now its the pupils and not the birds at fault.
Perhaps no one will even read this page,
perhaps those that do won't care, but I have to do something.
If you have any comments re this subject, please e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, you will have to copy and paste the address, spammers are another problem that is bad for my blood pressure.

Can‘t be winning nation if don‘t care for nature
I, for one, definitely second what Tony said:-
"I am certainly one of those who will boycott Madison‘s Restaurant."
Egrets silhouetted in the evening sky, after the carnage of their young.
