Thought for the month

“You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.”
Marcus Aurelius Antonius, Emperor and Stoic philosopher (121-180).

Once bittern, twice shy?

The main news here in the UK today is clearly the national parliamentary election and the expected result remains a complete unknown following a lively 4 weeks of the campaign. With the prospect of no party winning an outright majority, some political mating is anticipated in the following days and weeks. Another rare and unique mating ritual has finally been caught on camera.  A BBC natural history film crew has captured what experts believe is the first footage of a male bittern "booming" in daylight in the UK. news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8663000/8663139.stm
