Two more eggs last night, another one this morning. I think it’s safe to say that our chickens are earning their keep, which is good news – they make great pets, but it’s nice to have fresh eggs, too! The Lovely Melanie has even volunteered to refresh their food and water and close their door (to keep the warmth in overnight) if I’m not there!
In more global news, Barack Obama has been re-elected in the US. Which is good news not because I think he’s going to be a radical force for good in a divided and confused America but more because he isn’t Mitt Romney.
Obama accepts evolution and maybe even global warming, which is probably the best we can hope for at the moment – a US president who believes in reality.
