  1. Yup, it really is an amazing 'corner' of the solar system. I really wish they'd gone back to Triton, odd they haven't imo it seems to be a fascinating moon - but I doubt they will in my lifetime
  2. Why is it that the reply box (which I'm obviously using now) behaves differently in Firefox to in IE? Writing this in IE can see all the buttons are operational but I could not edit a post earlier in Firefox though could do with IE. Also, using Firefox the whole post occupies one line, whereas with IE is formats more readably. Is it to do with my copy of each browser (though I'm pretty sure my Firefox is more up to date than IE - which I dislike) or some inherent behaviour or the set up of NW?
  3. I'll surprise you, I agree with a lot of that! Though north Yorkshire isn't the world, carefully managed pasture fed meat is a better option than feeding grains and pulses to animals.
  4. Actually, she wasn't the first to use the word 'moral' in this thread. She did in fact react to someone accusing her of that - which is rather different. But I replied because of this: "I don't agree with you because of argument X and/or Y, Z etc....." or "I don't agree with you because you are preaching" I prefer the former.
  5. I'm not sure why she shouldn't have her say but you can? Why should that be the way it is? Why is she preaching but you not? Anyway, fwiw, I speak as a non 'veggie' someone who was, formerly, a farmer of animals in an intensive way. I think we take meat to casually. I eat meat, but not much and if I do I try to make sure it was reared well. Call it a result of my experiences.
  6. Fascinating article. Not sure about the 'jihad' comment - could four point out where the Taliban/ISIS where in it?
  7. And, for Feb (well, any month in Devon tbh ) very impressive it's been - even viewed from Dartmoor.
  8. I was a few miles east of Moretonhampstead and we both heard it (clearly) and felt it (just). A very loud boom it was. Reports on the BGS site.
