Machair in bloom
Posted: Wednesday, 05 July 2006
can you get a close up photo of the mac chair it looks interesting but we can't see what its really like. looks like stuff we have on our beaches, but not sure. The fank - the Arran lasses were to tidy up as they were last to leave. speak to them direct - if you dare.

That's just a front - everything's in storage in Granny's barn - we can have the place looking like Glastonbury in under two hours whenever we need to.

The Eoropie machar is pretty spectacular alright but it also has a lot to do with the fact that's it's now managed under the Rural Stewardship Scheme and the grazing committee concerned get paid a great deal to look after it. Look after it insofar as as they have to remove stock during a prescribed period. The machair is fertile alright, fertile enough to grow money.

AL is correct: problems on the IBHQ website and on publication blogging comments. Erratic (the nice euphemism for "awful."). When entries get lost haphazardly, attempted jokes fall flat, and entries are left dangling .... Solve it pronto, Graham, or I may just refuse to pay the BBC license fee next time the mailman brings me the bill up here in the high (Chihuahuan) desert.

Scallowawife, m'deario, ye need seek no further than Somebugger Airport for machair. HIAL were advised by some morons to poison the whole damn lot several years ago, which they did, but it has since recovered. Fpu picknicked on it in her yoof. I am still in mine! Hah!
