I'm also surprised and frustrated about this because when I visited Cambridge last year, I discovered the . I interviewed people I randomly met while walking on the several commons, and every single one of them was happy the cows were there.

Any Robbie Burns would do… Do you want me to look up a quote or is he such an easy draw he'd disqualify himself? I recall "Bessie at her spinning wheel" had a few nice nature observations

Support your volunteer bird counters, and if you can, find a few mornings to volunteer, yourself.

Drilling without approvals, and outside of licence areas, are major issues, despite what they say.

That video - watching to the end - made my face melt. What a piece of work. "Let's coach bad actors everywhere." Holy crap, that's irresponsible.

I've been up to some home canning and I have a few old Crown / Gem jars. I'm looking for the rubber rings to seal the glass lids. Here's an interesting (albeit ad-filled) blog post about a controversy about the lids and their discontinuation:

Yes, but dogs are not wild animals, they're cared for by us. That behooves us to not let them harrass and kill any wild animal. Claiming instinct (true or not - we also have instincts we tame) or "it's nature!" is not mere misfortune for the squirrel – it's indulgence.

Yes, democracy is a terrible system, because it's so easy to steer and deflect and peacefully bludgeon through bad policies. It gives open permission for people to be bad actors and sell bad actor gospel. But in a non-democracy, if a bad actor gets to the top, it's worse.

Enjoy this feed - because it might be the last days of farms like ours I’m totally serious - the Americans have been very clear what they’d expect in a trade deal - open trade in food was top of the list Will be a catastrophe for farmland wildlife - worse than last 30 years

I heartily disapprove with your choice to overthrow a potluck on a weekend (live a little! ✨), but I'll always approve of the decision to learn /self-teach new stuff. And learning that software, too.

Nothing says freedom like having the good sense to realize that there's a duty to share in developing emergency competencies, defense competencies, and doing what is necessary when emergencies or a need to defend occurs. Freedom isn't libertarian selfishness.

Sorry, there is no defending Judy's sentiment. Her words are disgusting. I believe good farmers outnumber the bad, but the harm the bad do is undeniable, and attitudes like Judy's enables them. Hen harrier-ing, badger culls, and other such acts deserve harsh calling out.

Judy, your opinion of other people and the tone and words you use to express it is really distasteful and disrespectful. I can imagine you wouldn't care for feedback, so I'm being polite to others by registering it.
