Don't forget that Saint Patrick is not the only saint whose feast day is March 17. It is also the feast of Saint Gertrude of Nivelles, the patron saint of cats and the people who love them.

Official (as it has been recorded by a Met Office station as well as several of mine) this is the warmest February day since 17.9c in 1897, 18.3c recorded in Aboyne is the new official record.
Below are the highest values recorded so far today, note with a wind off the sea how cold Dunbeath is compared with other spots with a warming wind off the land.

These warm temperatures in mid Feb at 58 deg North really are potentially catastrophic. Talking today to villagers today who describe the tides are very significantly higher, coastal erosion more. The higher temperatures (more energy in the atmosphere) come with increased rainfall, and more violent storms, but this falls as snow still on the higher ground. We are not going to burn like California but the violence of the winter weather is becoming a real problem. The animals in the fields are being kept wet all winter and suffering weight loss and poorer health. When to plant crops is now a lottery. There is nothing whatsoever good about these higher temperatures, the balance of crops/ livelihoods/ production/ stabilising population in these marginal grounds is starting to become a significant issue to population wellbeing. At 80 deg north this year I witnessed rivers of fresh water melt , too many to count pouring over the glaciers into the arctic ocean. These are starting to deflect oceanic currents which carry the nutrition to the base of the food chain. The fishermen around here all report that the species they are able to catch are changing from cold pelagic fish which we have traditionally cropped, to warmer water species migrating from south mid atlantic. And the winter climbing season is almost non existent and the ski resorts are seriously compromised with the unpredictability of the weather.

I didn't realize how chilly it is over there compared to here (Middle of the US). That's roughly 64F. While it's a nice temperature, it's a little on the chilly side for me. We keep our home at 67 in the winter and 75-78 in the summer. (average summer temp outside is 90 [32c], winter is average 15F [-9c] )

Are they tameable? I want one.

For anyone that is interested there’s a good documentary on Netflix called ‘the tigers of scotland’ about wildcats

Ironically enough the mascot from my undergraduate degree are the Wildcats!!!

We had a short period of free time in Inverness during the 2016 reunion. Walked there from the hotel and got there just when they were closing. Next time..... Can't get the photo upright! Aargh!

WONDERFUL🤩 Seeing this I not only want to book a trip there, but to move in 😂

Ohhh..... and Inverness is precisely where I want to visit.

When we go back we’ll have to see this Robert. Especially if the rest of the fam joins us.

love it but all the combustibles near that stove make me want to “talk to someone about woodstove safety”....and are they burning the old books?? noooooo.

Why is the best part of the room fenced off and surrounded by piles of (flammable) books?

Betty, do u know about the painting “Sanctuary of Knowledge”? So much detail it has to b a God thing.

Goodness I would love to be there

Been there twice - it’s amazing! Great collection of artwork on the second floor. And there’s a little cafe too.

Oh MY! What overwhelming fun that will be!

This is awesome 👏

Was just there! Great spot. That’s me at the register.

This is St Pauls Chapel in the Trinity Parish at the southern end of Broadway, NYC, completed in 1766. I visited this in 2012 to see the chapel, once the tallest building in NY, and to view the Bell of Hope. The Bell of Hope was a gift from London’s St. Mary-le-Bow, which is the sister church to St. Paul’s Chapel and is seen as most in America will surely know, a very short distance from Ground Zero of 9/11. But I have never seen it mentioned that the architect was Thomas McBean. So who was Thomas McBean and is it not time he was honoured by the clan, particularly in view of modern history? ...

I have the same questions. We visited in July 2015 and I’d noticed the plaque.

I’ve visited this church and have some great pics. So awesome it has ties to the family.
