Re: Equality Network Conference Edinburgh 1 October 2011

J am just home after a lousy fog/cloudy drive home. It was worth it for the experience. Like Lifey I am dog tired but will log on tomorrow, hopefully with more alertness.

There is a wokshop re marriage equality which I intend to go to and I will take your comments to it. Thanks for your comment re the Highland Rainbow Folk. Such comments makes the work well worth while.

Re: Is there a funny pics thread?

I read somewhere that when Carl Sagan was young he went into his local library and asked for a book about the stars and was given one with all the Hollywood Actors in it. I think the woman is the singer who died recently Amy Whitehouse.

I have run through the list of films and I have not seen any of them. My partner Rita was the film buff, I used to go to bed and read.

Sigma is 'normal' type but you would not know it to look at some of the members. I like the idea of a cake rota, might suggest it in preference to the biscuits we serve.

Re: Equinox

Hi Tententerre, do you have an observatory? my astronomy group, SIGMA, in Moray, meet at a local village hall but we also have a bothy at a disused airfield about 8 miles from Elgin, thus ensuring no light pollution. We do get a lot of cloud cover but also alerts for Aurora etc. which are quite good...

Re: 'Psychic' found cheating

A psychic regularly books a local hall, in Elgin, for sessions and advertises by putting little wooden signs along the main road. The grandkids love being taken along the road to knock them down.

It leaves unsaid the affect the pregnancy will have on the mother and her subsequent feelings for the child. I accept what you say about unless it is rape but I believe that many women are coe...

Re: Abortion-Anti-choice counselling: tell your MP to say NO!

I find it difficult to allow men any voice in the matter of abortion until I feel that no man will have sex with a woman without taking precautions, unless the couple intend to have a child., in which case abortion would not be needed.
