Happy June Solstice everyone (11.28 today).

Sorry to remind people in the Northern Hemisphere that it is summer but that our daylight hours start getting shorter - but good luck to those in the South.

Ah, time to get all druidic and dance naked around the tree in my garden again.

Nothing to do with the solstice, I do it every Monday..

LL, Monday is "Moonday"; does this urge get stronger once every 28 days by any chance? Say, when the Moon is brightest?

Is it just me, or has today seemed to drag on forever?

Happy Autumn equinox for tonight/tomorrow everybody, I await the severe gales that always accompany both equinox' here.
Although with a bit of luck the North Westerly force 9 we had all last week was maybe it.

Equinox? Excellent series. Got a sore throat trying to do the voice.

Good gawd! Is it that time of year already? Wasn't it the summer solstice the week before last?

The month before last, Alan - probably because it's all warm and summery doon sooth as opposed to the driving rain we've been enjoying :sad:

Enjoy the perfect balance of light and dark - it's only 3 months till the winter solstice, when hibernation appeals enormously....

I wish my family of hedgehogs would hibernate, the dog goes apeshit every time I let him in the garden, although at least this one doesn't pick them up and bring them into the house.
It appears we have mum, dad and four young uns each of which could sit in a tea cup, I'm going to make them a hibernation box and hope they have the sense to use it. :)

I once spent an hour tickling baby hedgehogs' private bits with a wet cotton bud to make them pee . . .

AlanH,

That was a bit TMI, huh? :) I've also done that for baby squirrels, skunks and raccoons. When these guys are very little, they need help to urinate/defecate and the only way to do that is either have their mum doing it as is the best way or having humans manually do it. I volunteered at an animal rescue. Not sure what that has to do with the solstice.

Yeah, but their mum's have to use their tongues, not a cotton bud!

[It was Alan C. mentioning the Solstice - baby hedgehog tickling is a seasonal thing in animal rescue units.]

Ah, yes, the tongue treatment. I'll leave that to the mum!

I didn't realize that baby hedgehog tickling was a seasonal to the solstice. Learned something new.
