Tuesday News

This week I enjoyed a report about a team from a hospital in Cardiff. They explained how much energy is consumed by the equipment used to cared for Covid-19 patients in an Intensive Care Unit.

To contribute to our environment they have been out in the countryside planting one thousand trees and are hoping others will follow suit.

You can watch a report about the team doing this on the BBC website:

I really felt for one of the guys who explained how intense it has been for him working in the hospital for long hours throughout the Pandemic. It was clear he appreciated the chance to be out with nature and was so glad to be able to do a little towards helping our climate and the natural world around us.

I am sorry this post did not go live last night. That was my fault for messing up my scheduling. But I promise you it is worth the wait.

This is not only good news, this is just about the cutest news I have seen this month. We are returning to the animal kingdom to cheer us up (because sometimes people seem to mean more bad news than good) and this week’s TUESDAY NEWS comes from Bristol.

Have you heard of a mouse deer before? These little creatures look like the most adorable animals. I could easily fall in love with those eyes! Last week a baby mouse deer was born over at Bristol zoo and it is not much taller than a pencil!

Please read this gorgeous report all about this sweet little baby:

I love that it enjoys eating sweet potato. Oh my! I am seriously in love with this little baby.

What a wonderful planet we live on and share with a spectacular array of creatures. How much joy we have ahead of us, once this earth is swept clean of greed and corruption.

Have you heard of Wiggle, Taz and Alfred? This week they made the headlines as possible the sweetest group of friends that have bonded with each other:

In another week of news that shows seems to show the global political economic system is a like a ship that has struck an iceberg and is slowly sinking (or a ship stuck on a sandbank in the Suez canal)…it is great to have reminders that soon all creatures on earth will live in harmony.

Tuesday News

I found a report that made me smile a lot this week It is all about an albatross named “Wisdom”. This is a special albatross!

Apparently, the life span of a Laysan albatross is between twelve and forty years. But researchers know that Wisdom is at least seventy years old because they have been tracking her since 1956.

Well – celebrations are in order because she recently gave birth (I think the term is hatched an egg technically) to a chick! She’s a mother-bird! She is in fact the oldest known wild bird and she has had another chick!

CONGRATULATIONS WISDOM!

Saturday Snaps

It is too long since we have been there, but one of my favourite places in the whole of England is in the Lake Distract. My legs ached from all the walking we did, but all the pain was worth it for the views.

I don’t have enough photos from our trips. Probably because I was so shattered by the time we reached the top of the Peaks, I could not even hold my camera up.

The Return Of Spring

I had a couple of days off this week, and because the weather was mild, I went for a long walk. It felt good. There were so many signs of spring. It’s amazing the way it lifts your heart and makes you feel more alive.

Winter is passing away and the new season is ahead. Time for life to return. I will be so glad when the clocks go forward and the evenings are longer.

Tuesday News

I had a lot of good news to choose from for this week’s Tuesday News. There were so many reports on animals frolicking in the snow and coming to the rescue in various lands. But in the end I chose an article more local to these shores.

This news is from up in Scotland. It is about the relocation of Golden Eagles chicks from the Scottish Highlands over to Dumfries and Galloway:

Apparently they are so excited about the potential boost to the numbers of Golden Eagles in the south of Scotland, they are even planning a festival for them.

These are magnificent birds, and it is always good news to hear of wildlife flourishing.

Tuesday News

In a world that is full of anxiety and sadness, nature just keeps on producing reasons to smile. One of the most cheerful news reports during the past week was the videos from Washington’s Smithsonian National Zoo.

It’s not just us that go wild when it snows – pandas do too!

I first saw this video on the BBC News, where they have set the frolics of the pandas to music. Love it!
