Comment posted Question: How can we license fracking when we have permanent drought? by Robert Wakeham.
That explains why I’ve never heard a cow fart, but I can assure you that it’s the reverse with goats – at least, if they’re feeding on typical mediterranean scrub. And there are plenty of goats in the world.

- It’ll be very interesting to see how the marine turbine array in the sound of Islay interacts with shipping, and also the larger marine life from seals to basking sharks etc.
- Ken, although I’m no great fan of PFI I can’t imagine many projects quite as disastrously managed as a very large hospital that suffers from a ‘fail dangerous’ power supply where the emergency generators have repeatedly failed to kick in when needed – ever since the hospital first opened.
- If someone could invent a way of ensuring that ruminants got a regular glug of red wine the value added for a barbecue product could be a winner.
- ‘…Free-Thinkers and Open-Minded folk….evidently spurious…’ Your arguments seem frequently to be the reverse of open minded, W.S.
- To cut to the nitty gritty, if we were to take the subject of atmospheric damage really seriously, should we be debating how to stop cows farting?

Longshanks, I don’t know enough about Gigha to make any comment at all, save for observing that you, as an enthusiastic user of this blog, are an unpleasant little hypocrite.
- Public consultation for Tarbert on pedestrian facilities for A83 through the town
Good news that the Barmore Road / Harbour Street junction pedestrian problem is being addressed.
Travelling up Barmore Road in a Citylink bus also demonstrates another (less dangerous but very tedious) problem, where the A83 of standard 5.5m width is routed through an urban area involving pavements, kerbs and stormwater drains in the edge of the road.
In both Tarbert and Arrochar these storm drains are set lower than the road surface, so that buses and HGVs are forced to bump their way along the road if they’re to avoid colliding with oncoming traffic.
And this in the country that once produced engineering innovation – and pioneering geniuses like John Loudon McAdam – pretty sad, really.
- Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
Well said, Integrity? – and it’s a sad fact that there was a surfeit of ‘tiring and childish abuse’ in the lead-up to the referendum.
The endless chanting of ‘bitter together’ was enough to put me right off voting yes, and political debate does seem to bring out the worst in some people and polarise issues to an extent beyond childish.

I must be missing something – plenty of photos, but not of the bow ramp, and it doesn’t seem to feature anywhere in the videos.
- Hazard warning lights on A83 for Rest and Be Thankful
I’d like to suggest that Transport Scotland invest in one more wig-wag sign warning of potential trouble on the Rest & be Thankful, to be sited at the entrance to the Holyrood parliament, as a reminder to our dear MSPs of what’s going on in the real world.
