Hurray! Bohemianmojo has a puppy. Nine-week-old Brig is a working Cocker Spaniel and like most pups she’s cute and adorable but also very naughty and time consuming. We’d forgotten just how much care and attention pups require but it all came flooding back, literally, in pools of pee and deposits of poo. Surely you know your world has shifted seismically when you reach out for some kitchen roll to clean up a wee and think it’s a triumph because you’re just in time to slip it under a tiny bottom to field a poo! Even describing dog excrement as ‘poo’ shows we’ve gone temporarily soft in the head when the foul stuff is the bane of public parks and streets.

Fasten your seat belts because motorists are heady for a roller coaster ride and whether you realise it or not; its already begun. Coming soon to a filling station forecourt near you - the Battle of the Batteries is about to ramp up as nations and international car makers start to consign the internal combustion engine to the history books.

Even your supermarkets, the best of them at any rate, pay attention to welfare standards and sustainability.

It’s not the same in the United States where quality butchers are scarcer than hen’s teeth. And in the US most animals are raised in heartbreaking feed-lots and never graze on lush pastures.

Bohemianmojo has been excited by research news from Duke University, North Carolina where a team led by Jennifer Groh have established that our eardrums coordinate with the direction our eyes are looking. Not earthshattering quantum stuff perhaps but confirmation, if confirmation were needed, that humans evolved as predators.

Two rivers drain into Swansea Bay, the Tawe and the Nedd, and for several years there have been dreams to build a tidal lagoon between them  on Dylan Thomas’ ‘long and splendid curving shore.’

The original plan envisaged a huge nine kilometre wall build with sand-filled, synthetic bags, faced with stone and a series of turbines to generate power embedded into it.  Oyster beds and yacht clubs were planned within its span and it would have served as a prototype that could be replicated on many sites around the British coast.
