Melissa beat me to it with her report of the Guild Meeting! I agree with everything she said!
I did enjoy the presentation about the Orkney Islands and the North Ronaldsay sheep. Not only do these sheep live on seaweed and seawater as Melissa notes but if they change diet they might die! The ewes do go inland to give birth and have to be given some sort of supplement in order not to die! I also loved how John pointed out their intelligence: they look right at you! And you would only be a little intimidated by them if you chose to walk along the beach. It was fascinating!
I also love being part of such a wonderful group of people. I discovered some spinners last night and will definitely be in touch with them (Melissa is one of them!)
