Well isn’t it just a wonderful time we are seeing with our towns and cities at the moment. All these lovely people who consider that it is perfectly acceptable behaviour to go on the rampage, steal, set fire to buildings, ruin people’s livelihoods, cause others to lose their jobs because of the damage, and generally behave in about the most moronic fashion, the more civilized and intelligent of us have ever seen.

I am ashamed that these people are living in the same country as I am. When you think what people in other countries such as Syria are facing, some fighting and losing their lives to gain democracy, where the idiots over here probably don’t even know they already have it, and certainly could not spell it, let alone understand the word. Others starving to death, where I saw little evidence of that in the pictures we were seeing on our TV screen, sadly all we saw was unforgivable and sheer greedy behaviour from people who were more than well fed.

The time has come to stop pussy footing around. Our teachers and police have been successfully emasculated by people who think that children should be empowered and wrong doers should be treated well. Neither teachers nor the police have any respect anymore and it is not surprising as we don’t allow them to their jobs properly. We need to go back to a time when if you misbehaved the people in charge of you at the time had the power to stop you doing it. Not be concerned that they might get sacked for telling off a child, or sued for using stronger methods to control crowds. It is time to give teachers back the power they used to have and remove the right to complain that you failed an exam because you were a lazy bugger. It goes through all walks of life up to the time when people are supposed to take responsibility for themselves. When you are not responsible, then you should be made to behave by those who are, when you are responsible, you should stop blaming others and get on with trying to do things better. The courts need to stop feeling sorry for the criminal element and remember the victims.

This country should not be in this state or be held to ransom by a bunch of people who when listening to them on the Television not only have no idea why they are behaving as they are, but who are thieves and thugs into the bargain, just using whatever excuse they can think up to be generally vile. Police and teachers need to be able to regain the respect they had and that means they need to be given back their power, and included in that is the right to be able to comfort a child if it needs it, not to be afraid you are going to be accused of being a sexual deviant.

On the other side, congratulation to the young people we saw a glimpse of on the news, who went out and helped to clear up the devastation, what a shame there are not more of that type of person around and encouraged.

We have had the saddest little bird in a couple of days ago, and it is not the first time. We had a young freshly fledged Hobby just left the nest come in. Its leg was broken, twisted and one toe dead, all from the bloody plastic binder twine, the stuff that holds bales of hay and straw together. It is vile stuff, firstly it is made from oil, like most plastics. I personally would prefer to have oil in the form of fuel which I can use for the foreseeable future, rather than plastic that I have to get rid of in my recycle bins. We need to go back, natural fibres sisal for binder twine, which rots over time, paper bags which comes from trees which are a natural resource and give us oxygen on a nighttime basis. The Hobby had to be euthanised as the injury was too bad and too old to fix.



I have to say that keeping a weblog can at times become compulsive and at other times a chore. Sometimes I am berrated for not keeping it up and sometimes I get wonderful comments from people who follow the news of the Centre.

It is fun to share the daily goings on here, some good and some bad, some funny and some sad, but all a part of our daily lives.
And as I said before its a pretty cool to be here and it is a great place to visit, you should try coming and watching the birds and meeting the staff and of course the dogs.

An interesting video on Lead

I find it staggering that people who want to hunt don't see the value in changing their ammunition from lead to a safer product. We have stopped using lead in petrol, in paint, in our water pipes, but they still want to use lead - ah well, apparently eating it not only kills birds but leads to reduced intelligence in humans......................

NO ONE is asking you to stop legal and genuine hunting, they are just asking you to change your ammunition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
