The UK imported 30% more foreign gas in 2010 than in 2009. Mike Childs, head of science, policy and research for Friends of the Earth (FoE) said that by making households dependent on imported power supplies, the long-term outlook is not secure and prices are 'rocketing'. To cut the fuel bills and ensure long-term supplies, the FoE calls for, a reduction in demand by measures like insulating homes and ways of saving energy, as well as support for the UK's developing renewable energy sources. The government released the statistics (click thumbnail image above to enlarge) on UK energy production and... Continue reading

Yes, the studies Marc has carried out are valuable. I wonder how many people have seen more of any kind of bird or butterfly, that is there are some species that seem to be doing very well. Thanks for your comment, Stuart

Thank you for that Stuart. The WWF site says that only 15% of rivers can now support a vibrant eco-system. http://www.wwf.org.uk/what_we_do/safeguarding_the_natural_world/rivers_and_lakes/rivers_in_the_uk/ But hearing observations like your own really brings it home. The more people are aware of how it has changed and begin to do something, the better for everyone. Carol

I was in Bristol in the same Tesco's just two nights before she went missing. Clifton was a lovely area, my mother lives there at the moment, my sympathies too to the family.

The interdependence of trees and insects comes to mind in a report by Butterfly Conservation that investigates the food supply of a rare butterfly. The loss of the English elm from Dutch elm disease has affected the numbers of the White-letter Hairstreak. This butterfly feeds on elm flowers and is now on the DEFRA UK 'priority' register as a result of its scarcity. Efforts are being made to find a substitute within the elm family that is resistant to Dutch elm disease. A report this year by the Butterfly Conservation Hampshire and Isle of Wight Branch into different elm varieties... Continue reading

This is a quirky video from Box of Crayons. I like it - it's called the 'Eight Irresistible Principles of Fun' Why eight? I disagree with one point, because I think everyone should live a life they hope WILL be remembered in 100 years from now. Watch it, if you have some time - Continue reading

It was just the weather for them, about -5C and falling. This picture was taken in December, just to remember what the sun looks like. ' It was dark, the fire only just lit, my eyes closed and I just carried on. Beginning with stretch pose 2min, then 1 - 2min each posture. Today the hard one was: 'Bend legs wide apart, grabbing on to... Continue reading

Tuesday morning 26th Jan we did a lot of warm ups - including leg stretches, crunches, stretch pose, cobra variation and bow. Then 'Exercises par fair respirer la peau' that is ' to make the pores breathe'. The yoga mudra is one posture, and this is different to some descriptions in that, the arms are up at 90' behind, instead of the palms together and pressing into the small of the back. I felt it in the upper arms - and my friend said 'how do you do it?' because he was trying to take his arms round in an... Continue reading

This morning Tue 19th January I did a short set after some warm ups with a friend - Foundation for Infinity from the Kundalini level 1 teachers manual – with Yoga Mudra, back platform and crow and I was really stiff! but it was so great to start to feel that incredibly strong energy coming through and knowing that others are going to be doing the set too. I think I have to do more energetic sets though to wake up the energy for both of us, after the winter. The main thing is to try to build the prana,... Continue reading

Hello fellow yogis - This morning when I went for a walk, the thermometer read -7'C and the only car tracks I saw on the road were from tyres with chains. So the snow that fell yesterday is still there, outlining the trees. The weather forecast does not go above freezing before Tuesday at Villefranche-du-Périgord! I am sadly having to cancel the yoga class tomorrow 11th January. I will keep you updated and look forward to seeing everyone soon. I had a good conversation with Rebekah about what everyone would like to see in the yoga class, and I am... Continue reading
