the ecology group meeting that i went to last night was full of people that say "yes and no" when they have to and they made a lot of hollow promises to help out but then used the excuse of work and stuff to not get involved
i really don't understand why they were there --- the ecology group is supposed to be about creating habitats and stuff so if you don't get involved in a hands on way then you can't possibly take the credit for getting creative or am i missing something ?????
would also loved to have seen some of the local yoof get involved in it but alas most of them were over 40 and just content with chewing hte cud with each other - basically just an excuse for a glass and a chat but about anything other than ecological matters. i wanted to know what their plans were and my questions kept on being passed over like i wasn't there or maybe it's cos i'm an outsider - idk.............
one thing though - you can tell the ones that get involved in the actual creation of things cos they actually know what is and isn't possible and they gave me the time of day and spoke to me like they always knew what it was that i was doing to my beloved trail
