My Octopus Teacher.


 Someone I worked with recently recommended that I should watch: My Octopus Teacher on Netflix.  It's an incredibly beautiful and moving documentary about an Octopus in a kelp forest and a diver.

To digress for a paragraph or a second.  I was standing at the pier waiting for the ferry last week and two work colleagues and I were watching Jelly fish close to the harbour wall.  I asked one of my workmates what purpose did Jellyfish serve?  He wasn't sure!

That night I asked Doctor Google and I read that they don't have brains, eyes or a heart and are made up of ninety five percent water.  They eat plankton and fish eat them.  They are all part of the food chain and all creatures play a part in providing food for every living creature.

That's the same  message I get from the documentary.  It's incredibly beautiful, poignant and sheds a light on the world under the water.  It's excellent!

  5. I must look out for the film. Sort of thing we would both like. Though k, being a fisher of them, does prefer his octopus grilled.
    They are very intelligent. Fascinating creatures

  6. When you said that "they don't have brains, eyes or a heart", I thought you were describing the last president of the USA. It is obvious that the purpose of a jelly fish is to advertise jelly - a much underrated food product.

  7. Ha,ha. I saw jellyfish close to the harbour wall today. They say it's a sign that good weather is on it's way.

C Is For Clannad.

 Clannad apparently means 'Family 'in Irish.  They go under the music genre Prog Folk.  I have seen them 5 times.  Twice this year. ...
