It's legal to pick and eat them if you don't know what they are. Just sayin.

On the other hand, eating random wild fungi can produce undesirable symptoms ranging from a bad stomach upset to rapid and painful death. As I understand it some quite dangerous fungi look disconcertingly similar to safe and tasty ones, so sampling wild fungi should be undertaken with care.

I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Huge terror/hate attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, fifty dead apparently. Really grim day, especially for the LGBT community.  :(

CG: True, though I know friends of mine who are LGBT are feeling especially rattled/worried that they're going to be targeted further in future.

Labour MP Jo Cox has been murdered, apparently by a lone far-right terrorist who may have had mental health problems though some of the details are still unclear.

Campaigning in the EU referendum has thus been suspended at least for the next day or two.

I'm just feeling shellshocked and quite shaken by it.
