The Knicks said he died of cardiac arrest at The Riverside Premier Rehabilitation and Healing Center in Manhattan. After his playing career, Ramsey worked for the […]
Whilst this is currently a rumour, with no confirmation from the Disney, (I have read several other reliable sources that this is true), I am super excited to see this come to life.
With commercial property rents on the rise, many of our high streets are being left with gaping holes where once cafes, libraries and local shops fostered tight-knit community. But derelict property – or land that is awaiting redevelopment – doesn’t have to stay untended and forlorn. The notion of “meanwhile spaces” has been gaining ground […]
We’ve planted a few more things in the garden: bright lights chard, icile radishes and yukon gold potatoes. So, along with the onions we planted last week, our garden is off to a good start I think. Happy gardening! .

Once February’s unpredictable wet and cold weather departed we have been back out in the garden regularly enjoying the gorgeous spring sunshine and making new discoveries as we plant, propagate, fertilize, compost, harvest, water and so much more. Propagation Students love learning about propagation in the garden – “it’s when you can make a new […]
Due to circumstances entirely beyond our control, the venue for this Wednesday’s ‘Adventures with Rainforest Raptors’ has had to change. We’re not going far though – just around the corner from the Gala. It’s the Oxstalls Sports Centre, Plock Court (just along from Fairmile Gardens, opposite the Beefeater), Gloucester GL2 9DW. We’re in the Conservatory […]
Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, whose image and name transition from culture to culture, represents on some level our own potential for the generosity of pure compassion which can be found in our own open hearts. the world needs more of us being willing to be bodhisattvas, more of us willing to tap into the […]
My car is now 13 years old. It putters as it goes along. The other day, the engine sounded like it was straining. Like it was trying to grind out enough umph in order to get me to Point B. How time flies. I remember when it had been brand spankin’ new. One day, the […]

Choose native pollinators from your region based on light and water. Determine how much space each plant will need once it has reached full size. Purchase plants that […]
Why did the squirrel cross the road? To get to merry old London! After the eight hour ordeal that brought me from Paris to London (Brexit related strike at the train station), I found myself smiling as I passed the familiarity of drifting street conversations that I could understand. A sense of home, the English […]
Time for Radish Sandwiches Okay okay. The garden is almost all in. Raised beds should, hopefully, be easier to maintain than the 1/4 acre that’s fallow right now. I’ll be using that as a Second Tier compost location. Between the chicken coops, raking out the sheep shelters, and the suint bath runoff, we should beef […]

Goodness me the weeks are flying!!! We are busy with work work and then busy at home too so the weeks are flying! In fact I looked in the mirror today thinking my hair needed a trim but I had only just had it done. Of course when I looked back it was actually seven […]
One of my earliest recollections as a geology student was a discussion of the upturned sedimentary rocks in The Garden of the Gods at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountain Front Range in Colorado. I distinctly remember hearing about the vertical movement of a large block of crust, which would ultimately produce the high […]
