That doesn't mean that everything we do is good of course , but morality is a man- made construct ...

Ellen, thank you for letting us know - I'm so very sorry to hear such sad news. Michael was always so keen and so positive and unfailingly good humoured. I shall miss him. My sincere condolences to his family and all who loved and cared for him.

Wildlife Pond

We were gazing into our pond the other day ... as we often do ... when we saw a group of Smooth newts in the water, getting amorous
