The sun is dead!! Mini iceage???

I read his Book the chilling stars back 15 years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chilling_Stars At the time I thought humanity was fully in the clear for global warming after reading it. But it still looks like it could have a sizable affect for slowing down climate change

Grounded bat in our back garden

I found one in my house the other night. I had left the windows open during the warm night and found this downstairs in the hall the morning. Was it a pipistrelle? What is the best way to release them? I slid cardboard under him and left him outside on a tree branch. He sat there looking around f

Why aren't you donating blood?

I wonder do they stop accepting your blood if it is high in inflammation like CRP etc. Or maybe it might be possible to clean out the antibodies from the blood either

Why aren't you donating blood?

Im O negative, so I used to donate a good bit in my early 20s until I got a false positive for Hepatitis too. Turns out I had undiagnosed spondylitis arthritis that was starting up at the time that was likely triggering the result. Now with the diagnosis I cant donate anymore unfortunately

Back on the wheat

An interesting medium article on the benefits of ancient wheat. Modern wheat has a lot of mutations that improve wheat output but greatly increase inflammation. Whereas ancient wheat can actually reduce inflammation. https://heated.medium.com/rethinking-gluten-free-9af692cebe3d

Back on the wheat

I gave up wheat & sugar etc a years ago for controlling my arthritis in my back (ankylosing spondylitis). After a year or two I went back to eating sour dough bread (from supermarket!) once a week & I started eating other food items that contained some wheat. At first I felt no bad effects but af

Beech hedge dying

Thanks I did notice white dust on it. I suppose on closer inspection the dust must have been flies. 3 out about 20 beech trees are like this, so i dont know why only these 3 were affected. I noticed a few shrubs with burnt looking leaves that must be frost damage though. https://www.boards.ie/v

Beech hedge dying

I have seen 3 of my young beech doing that too here in Athenry. The leaves shrivelled up and stopped growing. But my other beech in the same row seem perfectly fine. I was wondering if there was some pest in the soil eating the roots, maybe crane fly or cock chafer larvae. I had a huge infestati

M17/M18 - Gort to Tuam [open to traffic]

I could imagine the M17 being very useful to go into the city once the Galway ring road gets built. But at the moment the the motorway is backed up badly at Coolagh roundabout during rush hour every morning

M17/M18 - Gort to Tuam [open to traffic]

I had wondered if it would make sense to have an extra junction with the old Dublin road at Coldwood. That would take the oranmore traffic away but would hardly take much Clarinbridge traffic

Attenborough scaremongering?

One part of the whole problem is our current economic model. We need to keep "growth" positive for it to function. Growth unfortunately means population growth too, at least until AI or something produces new growth for us!
