Pithy, punchy and to the point! If the supermarket goes ahead, perhaps Waxwings or Redwings will like the landscaping of the car park ... just a small silver lining thought.

progress can retard all things

Damn, that was short and to the point. So poetic and yet so sadly true. Another supermarket. It reminds me of Lou Reed's song Strawman:

Does anybody need another million dollar movie?
Does anybody need another million dollar star?
Does anybody need to be told over and over
Spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard?

Greetings from London.

Isn't it sad when Nature is destroyed for development?

thanks everyone, yes it's very sad, so much of Edinburgh's green spaces are currently threatened with development at the moment, we could lose quite a lot....
