365/366 The last, but one.

They’ve chopped down a tree on the high street. This is what is left of the stump;

I must admit that the tree did lean at an awkward angle across the high street. I can see how it could be a hazard. But, I would also hazard a guess that most people in the town were aware of the tree and do what was needed to avoid it. So, I hope it’s removal wasn’t merely because “it could be a nuisance.”

Having cut it down, they’ve left about four feet of trunk. Unless they remove that, I would assert that they have left more of a hazard than if they had removed the trunk. That would be awkward, it would mean a fair bit of work, as you can see the surrounds, it will mean a fair bit of effort to remove the root system, thereby significantly increasing cost.

So, what are they going to do with the stump? My thought was perhaps they could have shaped the trunk turning it in to a seat, or even a small table (I can’t remember if it is outside a restaurant – I’ll check in the morning). I do hope that cutting the tree down was required.

I did a salinity check at the Cockleponds. Previous tests have been consistent at around 39%, today’s level was pretty much bang on 35% which is about normal for seawater.

I have two new devices; a PH meter, and a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) and Electricity Conductivity (EC) meter. Now, these two devices are not expensive, together they were less than £10. And they need to be used advisedly. When I read this; https://www.hydroviv.com/blogs/water-smarts/tds-meters-and-testers0.+ I almost decided not to buy them, but having read them, I reached two conclusions; that I am only doing this as a bit of fun, and that I would take the readings with a pinch of salt (how appropriate).

When I was discussing what I was planning to do with the #Breakfastclub, I wasn’t met with ridicule, far from it. But one person suggested that rather than going down to put the devices in the water, I should put a beaker on the end of pole and get samples from a but further out. Now, that really did put an idea in my head, which I am now investigating.

Gosh, that was so much better than my first attempt which I ditched after three paragraphs, because it was rubbish. The penultimate article of the 366 project really does deserve something better. This is that better thing.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
