|There will be a Soup and Sandwich Lunch held at Carradale Primary School on Sunday, 15 January 2006 from 12 noon until 2pm. A proceeds will go towards Mairi Paterson's Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Treatment. £3 per person.|
Mairi is also raising money by way of a sponsored Shoogle. This involves her walking the equivalent of 274 miles (the length of Scotland) on her special exercise machine - no small feat for an MS sufferer! Sponsor forms for this are available in The Glen Bar and elsewhere.
Another stunning sunrise here again today. The quality of the air and the light here is amazing, and a photographer's dream. The colours this morning were fantastic. Other than for re-sizing, no other computer manipulation has been done of this picture. This particular picture was taken at 8:30 this morning.
There was an interesting photo in yesterday's Independant on Sunday. It was a satellite photo of the British Isles taken at night to show the extent of light pollution in the UK.
You could clearly identify some of the towns and cities, as well as being able to make out the outline of the country. Sort of a geographical dot-to-dot puzzle. It's just a pity you can't view it online.
Predictably, there was only very marginal evidense of light pollution over Kintyre and much of the highlands were shrouded in darkness. There were a couple of hot-spots though; presumably Campbeltown or the airport, and up at Tarbert.
The Glen Bar is closed for a week now, re-opening on Wednesday, 18 January 2006 but The Cruban Bar is still open for business as usual and Paterson's Shop has a good stock of wines and spirits for off-sales.
