Mixed bag ...

The weather does not quite know what to do this morning ...


Dead calm, cool and grey and the odd flash of sunlight. Hopefully the cloud will burn off and restore the lovely weather of the last few days.

We inspected the small holding this morning, where preparations for summer have started. The bamboo canes have been readied for beans and tomatoes. Rows have been cleared of cabbages and broccoli has been harvested. Even the hens have been moved somewhere else.


I was quite taken by these notices on a taverna, here in town.


Yes they may feed the soul but not the belly, I prefer the vegetable garden option, which I feel is much more rewarding.

Meanwhile something more important is happening in Rome, or should I say at Vatican city, where regardless of what you read, or see in the news - A new method more up to date with modern times, is being used by the cardinals who are all locked in the Big Pope house, watched 24/7 by global TV news agencies and the internet ...

When the music stops ...
In the event that the music machine breaks down, they will use method no 2. This involves seeing who has the most friends on Facebook from the final candidates ...

However outside everyone is watching for some polluting carbon, being sent into the atmosphere. Now this had me thinking - Pollution to say there has been a decision ...

So the U.S. of A the world's biggest emitter of carbon into the atmosphere, at the time, signed up but never ratified the Kyoto protocol in 2011. It still does its own thing, so can we take it as a sign, that the new man shortly to be evicted, from the Big Pope house, will be from the land of Uncle Sam ?

Actually the Vatican in English twitter account ( @news_va_en ) has 139,995 followers, and followers should know in seconds across the globe. They may not need the chimney after all ...

PS: Now its clear blue skies above, amazing the difference a half hour makes ...
