The tone needed lowering...or is that "lowing"? (SWIDT).

Ah, the old ones: "What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison"?

Yeah but didn't we call the bison of N.America ' buffalo' right or wrong.

Right or wrong, I believe, in such situations, the best thing to do is ask the species what they call themselves and go with that.

I think it would be best to do a press conference about it.

A focus group might get a better feeling for how the creature may want to be, all things considered, named.

Also, we need to take into consideration how they want to Identify to others. Eg: we may have a non binary Bison.

So, if you're so clever, you tell us what colour Bison should be?

No headache as such, just the most amazing intense light show in one eye whether its open or closed. 2nd time it happened I just sat back and enjoyed the show. :happy10: 10- 15 mins of cor, followed by not being able to see much out of one eye then its all back to normal. Erks!
Yep, I get these very occasionally, maybe a couple of times a year. Funny things and would be very disconcerting if you didn’t know what they were.

I sometimes get what I call "visual disturbances" where my peripheral vision is blurred for short periods ie about 5 - 10 minutes.

I've been sent to the eye clinic at the West Suffolk hospital on two occasions and their best guess is migraine without the headache.

My Mum sometimes sees beautiful colours and flowers on the walls but she does have macular degeneration.

I'll let you know once we've finished this 'wheel' project, can rush colour considerations.

'The wheel' may have some mileage in it but it us too early to tell.
