Register to vote for Civil Marriage Equality

Next year we vote on civil marriage equality in Ireland. ‘Yes Equality’ is a campaign throughout the month of November to remind people to register to vote as the deadline is the 25th. I really feel like there is big change coming to Ireland on issues like this. Personally I believe that love is love whomever you find that with. The polls indicate that there is wide support for a Yes vote next year so I’m hoping that people get out and make it a resounding one.

Lego Jurassic Park

I was 12 when Jurassic Park was released so it was a mind-blowing experience and I’ve loved it since. Hence I was delighted to hear of the Lego Jurassic Park idea that’s seeking 10k votes before it’s officially considered for manufacture. I’m sure they’ll spare expense.

Watching and waiting

I deliberately hadn’t taken the phone or the headphones. I mightn’t have spotted them otherwise. They were standing there watching and waiting. Three herons in all. Spaced along Sandymount Strand as the night tide hit a low peak and receded. Something I hadn’t seen before.
