I was broken hearted to see Tentsmuir forest yesterday, after the hurricane.
Paths I’ve walked for years blocked by fallen trees and parts of the forest practically flattened. At the car park by the river, a tree I’ve sat under and picnicked, down and dead. I picked up some of its cones for Munguin’s gardens so it will live on in kind.
Happy day, however, for the people of Barbados.
Congratulations to President Mason and the Barbadians. (And thanks to DonDon for putting me right on the president’s name.)
Charlie arrived in Barbados in his royal private plane (at heaven knows what cost to us and to the planet) as a member of their ruling family and left as a member of a foreign royal family.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GIVE YOU NICK FLETCHER (Nah, nor me but I’ll look him up for you.)
I can, of course, understand, that if you are a male British teenager and you hear that you are not going to be playing James Bond, Luke Skywalker, or even Dr Who, that you must think to yourself, “well, self. That’s it. There’s nothing left for me now but the world of crime. I’ll have to go rob a bank … or maybe even join a crime syndicate, like perhaps the Tory Party.
Why, only the other day I saw two young lads lamenting the fact that not only was the home secretary female but the foreign secretary was too.
Imagine their dismay when I added to their woes by informing them that the queen was a woman!
Yep, I can see why the Tories voted for this. It will leave them more money to buy a peerage.
The thing is, once you get that blood transfusion and you become Noble, your view on so many things changes. After all, what is £1 500 per annum to the average aristocrat who can collect more than £300 a day for resting his or her eyes?
Downing St source says “there is a lot of concern inside the building about the PM….It’s just not working. Cabinet needs to wake up and demand serious changes otherwise it’ll keep getting worse. If they don’t insist, he just won’t do anything about it.”
