From the paucity of posts you may have gathered that I have been a little busier of late.
I would not insult your intelligence either with just any old drivel trying to fill a space.
If I have nothing of value to add then I would rather remain silent.
There are some who have said something very important in the past week.
Oh out of the mouths of babes....
An overhead remark from a Gen Y to...well someone of a much older generation before they were labeled, gives rise to some very pertinent musings.

The second is from the Mount Gnomon blog and their post entitled
The lovely couple of Mount Gnomon Farm are champions of the rare breeds and ethical farming.
They produce, among other things, true "organic free range pork products" from their Wessex Saddle Back Pigs.
Eliza gives a very moving and honourific account of a sow's first farrowing at the farm this week.
I felt every movement and struggle.
Have you ever had someone describe their labour of birthing and found yourself almost pushing through contractions in empathy?
It's like that.
I have long admired Eliza's photography but her writing is also quite divine.
I am so excited about tomorrow.
I get to meet Claire from Sweet Birdy Love
She is having a little holiday in the State.
I am looking after the shop all day tomorrow so she is calling into
Resurekt at 270 Invermay Rd at 9.30.
I have made Date Slice and Lee from Killiecrankie Farm is also coming.
Any other bloggers who would like to meet Claire or Lee are quite welcome to come in and have a cuppa and some slice.
