Hot off the press! The new diaries are due to arrive from the printers later today, and the new calendar will follow soon. I'm very much looking forward to seeing both, and sending them out to you.

We're giving you an early bird discount of £1 off each calendar and diary you buy until the end of September, so now's the time to get them. In addition, if you don't have a 2018 calendar yet, or know someone who doesn't, you can get one free with a new calendar.
The 2019 calendar is to be Maggie Organ's last as illustrator, as she's retiring. Her work is as fabulous as ever, so don't miss out on your copy. 
The 2019 Britain & Ireland Diary features a new layout, with two more cities added, so every day you can now see the rising and setting times of both sun and moon for London, Cardiff, Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow and Inverness. Sample of new layout. The bilingual Cornwall edition has the new layout too.

I'd be very grateful if you could spread the word about the Moonwise Calendars and Diaries on social media, if you're into it. I'm a hopeless case.
This new moon is the beginning of both the Jewish and Islamic years, and the equinox is approaching: the weekend after next, just before full moon. We can (I hope you will agree) celebrate the new era of LGBT rights in India, and groan at the state of Brexit negotiations, whichever side we're on, and wherever we live. My own view is that the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom need to be both in or both out. How could Britain even think of leaving on its own? We're bound up together, and there was a reason we joined at the same time.

Once again we're having a record-breaking year for temperatures, and alas a series of devastating weather events around the world. This very week, a major hurricane is forecast to hit the Carolinas: not in itself unusual, but the number of extreme events is increasing.

Yet the attention of most of our representatives is elsewhere. We need to be the people pressing for inter-governmental action. In the mean time, we can make genuine progress by cutting right back on plastics, animal products and unsustainable palm oil, and by organising to plant lots more trees. I have a strong feeling that trees can yet be our salvation, and a world with more of them can only be a good thing!
