Our walk yesterday past Clubbiedean reservoir we got to see a stoat carrying one of its kits. It's a shame the gate was in the way.

Did you know over 1000 scientists engaged in civil disobedience yesterday all over the world? This was massive: scientists are trained to be cautious, so getting this many to act should have been a top story.

Media coverage? Zero. An utter disgrace.

We took our cairn terrier on a walk we do on average once a week, it takes us past a cairn breeder. It's at the end of a quiet road and their dogs are free to run about in their yard which has a mesh gate.
Our cairn likes to run up to the gate and the other dogs run up to him and start barking. Our cairn then leaves them barking and trots off with a smug look.
Today was no different except the breeders dogs all started to howl a bit like wolves.
Our dog was really unsettled for the next 10min.

The Variety Bar in Glasgow will be displaying my son's artwork from tomorrow.

Are there good brands for computer mice?

Ethically produced would be top notch. Linux compatible is a must.

Mouse wants: wired and around 5 buttons would be grand, so I can go back and forwards in browser.

Retoots appreciated.

We saw a Great Spotted Woodpecker on our walk this morning. This was at the woods beside Kinleith burn. The bird that can be heard are long tailed tits, there were a lot of them about but they didn't stay still.
