Wednesday 4 April

Fairly bright today, and until a minute ago, dry. However, the rain has just moved in as I type this. Northern England was battered by high winds, snow and ice overnight.

Big news today: the pandas in Edinburgh Zoo have not mated. Right. That's news of national importance?

I think it is rather more important that Caledonian MacBrayne's, our ferry company, will fit cardiac defibrillators on all its vessels. The defibrillators can be used when someone suffers a cardiac arrest, a lifethreatening situation which requires immediate intervention. 

I close this post with a close-up of a treetrunk, which is sporting a good covering of moss. How do you mean, damp climate?
