Saturday 12 September

Equinox approaching rapidly, and it's getting dark by 8pm now. Nice sunset last night, will post pictures at a later stage. The island's shores are plagued by jellyfish, which are not just a nuisance. If they get into fishfarms, they are capable of killing the salmon - in 2002, £3m worth of farmed fish were killed in a fishfarm south of Stornoway.

J-landers are reminded that Lisa Arthur's Facebook site was hacked, and is now closed down. She has reopened a new account. I am glad, in a way, that the hackers chose the wrong person. Everyone who knows Lisa is aware she's housebound, if not bedbound, due to her ill health. So it was pretty obvious it wasn't her over in London, asking for money.


  1. It is about the same here...getting dark about 8 in the evening. It is also going to be a beautiful day here and I'm trying to make the best of it one way or the other. Lisa's facebook hacking is one of several I've heard of. I closed my account there and am just sticking to blogging. Hope your Saturday is a great one.

  2. I thought that picture was snow at first! I despise jellyfish! Ouch!

    be well...

  3. Poor sad to hear her computer was hacked. Why do people do these awful things?

  4. Goodness, that is alot of jellyfish - they scare me.

  5. Whoa, that is a LOT of jellyfish. I knew they could kill other fish but had no idea of the vastness of the trouble they cause. Is there anything that can be done about them, without harming the ecosystem?
    Sorry to hear Lisa getting hacked. That's awful.
    Have a good Sunday.
