Blog reading

I have not been visiting blogs of late, will rectify that omission over the next few days.

Saturday 3 April

Very late post for today, with not much to report. The weather was changeable, mainly wet. The birds emptied the feeders in the hours of daylight (greedy so-and-so's).

The Archbishop of Canterbury uttered sharp criticism of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, later trying to mollify the situation. But the fact that priests in the Irish Catholic Church have been engaged in widespread abuse of children is an extremely serious matter, that has actually undermined trust in that Church. Making statements like that at Easter, a time when the sacrifice by Jesus Christ is commemorated, is not held to be very tactful.

I am closing for today and wish everybody a happy Easter - don't eat too many eggs.
