Want to have your say about Scotland and do something?

I can’t remember how I found this site, and to be honest it hardly matters, what does matter is that it gives everyone the opportunity to have their say on what may well become Scottish law.

Use electricity from 100% sustainable sources without extra cost!

I am so jealous of those living in England and Wales right now as they have access to the energy supplier Ecotricity.

Have your name on a new species

Apparently the 1.8 million known species only represent 10% of those actually on our planet, that’s a lot unknown and yet to discover, classify and investigate.

Reading The Dark Tower

I’m halfway through The Dark Tower now, and I’m getting sad. I think I was sad as soon as I got through the first few pages of overlap from the previous and started reading the actual last story.

Not only that, I can’t remember a time when a book affected me so much as this one has. Today I was reading a few chapters and I started crying! Tears were welling up and I was finding it hard to read! I don’t think I can ever remember a book hitting me like that.
