What a lovely moth! Thanks Tris.
He can eat at my table (cloths) any day!! :)
I've checked the ITV listings for next week and cannot see anything. p.s. Photos - awwwh.
Thanks for trying Marcia. I know... so lovely.
Great pics again, spectacular sky shots. Primates are so human.
Ha ... yes, they very nearly are.I love beautiful sky shots, and every time I see one in real life, out comes my phone... then I look at the picture and think...what?
As always Tris, Munguin has managed to excel himself!
There's no doubt that the Furry One knows a good photo when he sees it.
Truly I am blessed. Not only orang pictures - told you they were cute!, but also my favourite cats, the cheetahs. Cheetah cubs (why not kittens?) are adorable. As for Joanne Lumley, her programme starts w/b 11 July. The new TV magazine comes out Tuesday, so I'll have a look for you. WARNING - to watch STV/ITV player, you need to register for an account (though it's easy), you can't just click on it.
Ah well PP...sometimes good things happen despite David Cameron.I wonder who decided what they young, or collective nouns should be for animals. There's a lack of logic in some of them...Thanks for the info on the programme. The only thing I could find on the net was an announcement that it was to be shown in March!!!My friend Dani, at home in Hungary a the moment for the summer, is hoping to make the trip sometime soon, and I'd love to show him the programme when he comes back. (Actually I'd love to go too, but Munguin won't pay!)
Pictures of animals always makes me wonder whether, up here, rabbits have taken over from lemmings. The local pub is seven miles away along a narrow road with thousands of acres of moorland on either side. Despite that on just about every journey rabbits will run across the road in front of the car. Fortunately, I've missed them so far but unfortunately others don't always. I was driving home one evening and a sea-eagle swooped down in front of the car to pick up some road-kill and my elderly passenger was telling me that sea-eagles mate for life and the only time they make a sound is when their partner dies and that it is the saddest sound you ever heard.On a lighter note there is a bridge connecting my island to the "main-land" and there is a curious prominent sign on the bridge "CAUTION; OTTERS CROSSING" Someone on the council has obviously decided that otters, instead of doing what comes naturally and swim from one side to the other. would climb up a cliff to the bridge, being careful to avoid humans as they normally do, and climb down a similar cliff on the other side!!
PS: There is no sign anywhere that states "CAUTION, RABBITS CROSSING"!
Ah, the ways of the wild western islands.Imagine driving 7 miles to the nearest pub and only having a half pint for fear of being over the new Scandinavian style limit! Amazing people the islanders. No one would do that here!The reason that there is no sign says "rabbits crossing" is surely because the wee chaps don't worry too much about where they cross, due to the new Scandinavian drink limits. They're not daft.Otters, if they have any sense, will remember that some people may not always stick to the letter of the law in these matters. They should stick to the swimming.I can imagine that your friend is right though, about the sound of a sea eagles cry. A dismal thought.

I only drive to the pubBetter half drives backFailing that, I take my boatMy boat is faster than the police boatIn fact, there is no police boatThe nearest police station is 50 miles awayThe last policeman we saw here was Dixon of Dock GreenIf there is no crime you do not need police!The last crime was a lady arrested for watching Strictly Come DancingShe will be eligible for parole in 2050The previous crime was a lady noisily sooking a barley sugar in the kirkShe is also eligible for parole in 2050!Yes, I am a tad bored!!
Ah... right...By the same token if you have now polis, you wouldn't know if there was any crime.Don't be bored. Write a guest post you lazy sod... maybe one about your island and with lots of photographs... (serious).Or I guess, go to the pub?
"you lazy sod" How very dare you, sir! I care not that you are the fifteenth cousin, teeth removed, of the last of the Mandelsons, 'The days when high Tories such as yourself can insult forelock tugging, cap doffing oiks such as myself are long gone - [are they feck!]?I suppose you would like me to tell you about the police raid on an illegal drinking den, an old lady's reaction to the Kennedy assassination, the dispute between a ferry skipper and geologists, the misunderstanding between a wee free minister and an English doctor, my reaction to being asked by a tourist "Do .... you.....speak.... English?" and my thoughts on the den of iniquity known as the White Heather Club? No, sorry, I can't be bothered and, incidentally, photographs have not been invented here yet!
My goodness....I'll take a minute to get over that lambasting.Munguin says he is not related in any way to anyone called Mandelson, with or without teeth.I was just thinking that if you ever summons up the energy you might like to tell us about some of these exciting adventures you've had with tourists and ministers (keep it clean though, Niko reads the blog).Erm... there was one thing I wanted to know before anything else: do...you...speak...eeenglish?
Only when I'm talking to monoglots! - whatever that means?
Isn't it the opposite of stereoglots?
