Suffering today after doing well yesterday and even though we had
trouble with the truck running low on diesel and clutch playing up the
stress of the situation never got to us and we left with the shopping
done and NO FAGS..
The effects of 100+ fags a day for years is now begining to take its toll.
Mel admitted she stopped with me expecting me to only last an hour or
2 lol ,but we are now at 74+ hours and into the fourth day.

Save The River Doon

save doon

Why is the Doon under threat?
Scottish Power, a subsidiary of Iberdrola, a Spanish utility company, has the intention of reducing compensation flow in the River Doon from 45 million gallons per day to 28 mllion gallons per day and diverting yet more of the Doon’s water into the Kirkudbrightshire Dee.
The current compensation flow for the Doon was agreed as a result of water loss from the catchment when the Loch Doon dam was constructed. It is believed that the Doon currently loses 30% of its water - a greater percentage loss than for any other river in Scotland affected by hydro activity.
The Doon is the finest salmon river in Ayrshire, a fact which has significant economic benefits for the county, but also important social and recreational benefits too.
It would appear that Scottish Power has used the introduction of new legislation - the Water Frameworks Directive as a means of justifying its application. The hugely increased volume of water being transferred into the Dee would enable the company to generate more electricity and consequently income.
The reduction of flow to 28 million gallons of water per day would have a drastic effect upon the salmon stock of the river and also of other important species such as the endangered freshwater pearl mussel. This action would effectively finish the Doon as a salmon river of any consequence.
Please support the campaign to protect the River Doon from this threat by adding your signature to our petition here. http://www.savethedoon.com/?page_id=3

Why does God need so much money ????? faith healers

reflection-5

It is a little after 6.00am and as i go to get out of my bed the cold from clear the night sky rushes in to fill the space left . outside everything is covered in a white carpet of crystals .
To the East the morning sun begins her journey of life giving warmth and slowly at first the carpet retreats then quickens to disappear for another day.
I had a broken sleep last night after watching a programme by Derren Brown..

It was about Faith Healers and their greed .

It never ceases to shock me the size of audiences at these faith events and now they have crossed from America and are reaching out across the world with their lies and greed.
I find it so sad the amount of people that are searching for answers that are taken in by these bastards with the hype they create
I believe any one caught doing this should go to jail for many years they “pray” on the vulnerable and scared amongst us and with singing and booming voices achieve their true goal of ridding the audience of as much money as is possible , even to the extent that if the person is NOT healed it is their fault .BASTARDS…
In this modern world of instant answers and communication we forget to simply stand back from a problem and take the time to understand it .
One off the many tricks they use is auto suggestion simply by telling the person they feel no pain the pain goes , this is a trick i have used most of my life , that is why i believe we all have so much ability trapped within us if we would simply allow it out.
rather than that we put our trust in some smarmy git that has the ability to dupe so may people  with false miracles and worse.

I believe that in us all is the ability to heal and if we come together we can do so much good across the world.

The same tricks are used by these people as the person selling us that Dream sofa ,Dream kitchen etc pay now and pay nothing for a year then SIMPLY pay it off over 4 years..

So many of our answers come from simply looking around at nature

Scottish highland artist Lynn Bennett-Mackenzie

Scottish highland artist Lynn Bennett-MackenzieBorn in 1967, Lynn Bennett-Mackenzie is an established artist living and working in north west Scotland. She was brought up in the remote rural areas of the Highlands of Scotland. Lynn studied at Gray’s School of Art graduating in 1990 and now has a workshop/studio on a picturesque croft, from where she also operates a thriving framing business She works in various media – oils, mixed media, watercolour & pen & ink. Her work is evocative of the Highlands and is inspired by the light, colours & stories of the area as is particularly evident in her pen & ink drawings. She has shown work in various exhibitions and taken part in community and international projects including The Big Picture, Wild Wood , Landfill art, and was recently invited to attend an International Art Symposium in Russia. Her work is innovative, original and versatile and she aims to capture an essence of emotion in her work, drawing the viewer in to the story that unfolds. Her work is intuitive and comes from within, drawing on her experiences from where she lives and from places and people she meets & visits. Her latest works focus on the invisible connections between us and the world at large. She is fascinated by the notion of what is around us that cannot be seen but often felt by some, faith, and the way people interpret consciousness & reality. Her work has been described as having a gentle beauty, softness and light and dynamism. Lynn hopes that her work will make people more aware of their own internal power and our ability to adapt and change.

Scotland to get 4G mobile broadband following new plans released by Ofcom « LTE Mobile Broadband

Scotland to get 4G mobile broadband following new plans released by Ofcom « LTE Mobile Broadband

The latest proposals that have been outlined by the communications regulator, Ofcom could see mobile broadband coverage in Scotland considerably extended.

The auctioning of certain frequencies that were previously used for analogue television is being planned by the telecoms regulator, Ofcom and this will mean that new 4G or fourth generation mobile broadband technology could soon be making use of this additional spectrum.

As much as 95 percent of people in the UK could soon have access to high-speed mobile broadband services with one of the proposals that has been made to extend coverage.

The plans would benefit rural areas of Scotland the most even though the coverage would be the same for most aspects like text messaging and regular phone calls.

It is expected that the Treasury will make billions from the sale of the spectrum in the auction, which will be the largest of its kind, and the UK- wide license for 800MHz spectrum is likely to fetch the most as the ability to provide widespread mobile broadband coverage is its main feature.

The obligation to provide a mobile broadband service to 95 percent of users in the UK will be placed on whichever carrier wins the license according to proposals from Ofcom.

The consultation documents that have been released by the regulator current provide no specific figures regarding coverage in Scotland, although the extension of coverage to cover specific areas like some rural locations and certain major roads is something that Ofcom is seeking views on.

Even with 95 percent coverage for general phone use there is still only 90 percent of the UK population that are able to access the internet on their mobile handsets. The rural areas and locations with small populations in Scotland are currently the areas that are most affected by blackspots.

Close all Seaworlds and the like across the world and stop this cruelty from going on.

 

2011-04-07

Please take a minute to help stop animals all over the world being treated  in this terrible way simply to provide “entertainment” for us..

 

 

Matt Damon 'supports campaign to close SeaWorld'

 

“Matt Damon has pledged his support to a campaign attempting to close SeaWorld in Orlando, FL following the death of a trainer at the theme park on Wednesday.
Dawn Brancheau, 40, was maimed and killed by a whale named Tilikum during a show with the mammal at the aquarium.
Campaigners for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have since joined forces with celebrity Bob Barker to petition SeaWorld owners The Blackstone Group and appeal for its closure.
In a letter to Blackstone boss Hamilton James, Barker wrote: "The death of [the] trainer at SeaWorld did not have to happen, and I must appeal to you to take strong action now so that it never happens again. I urge you to make [a] humane move now and to start moving the captive orcas and other marine mammals to transitional coastal and wildlife sanctuaries.
"This is not the first time that a trainer has been seized, thrown against the walls of the tank, and held down to drown. I cannot imagine what the sight of such a hideous event would do to a child in the audience...The only thing that people learn from visiting a SeaWorld theme park is how miserable life is for animals held there."
Damon has now revealed his shock at the trainer's "horrible" death, insisting that marine mammal parks such as SeaWorld should be "shut down".
He told Entertainment Tonight: "I think they should just shut them all down. I've never been a fan of places like that."

Photography Scotland

Photography Scotland

Photography Scotland

Home to Ros Gasson’s stunning photos of some of Scotland’s beautiful places, people and events. On these pages you’ll find landscapes, seascapes, sunsets, city photography, close-ups, fascinating people, photography from all manner of Scottish events, photos from the islands around Scotland’s coasts, images of mountains, glens, snow and sunshine…and photos of anything related to Scottish traditional music.

Landscapes and seascapes

Scotland is a beautiful country, with enough variety to keep any photographer occupied for a lifetime. I’m passionate about the west coast and the islands around Scotland, so you’ll find plenty of images from places such the Outer Hebrides, Mull and further afield. In the summer of 2011 I’ll be going to St Kilda. I’ll certainly have my camera with me for that trip!

Cities

Edinburgh is the festival city. It’s home to the world famous Edinburgh International Festival, Fringe Festival and New Year Street Party. I love being part of the energy that festivals bring to the city, from the Canal Festival to the Edinburgh Mela, beach busks and torchlit processions. And from time to time, I stray into other cities with my camera too.

Scottish traditional music

I’m lucky to have access to such a variety of traditional music events to photograph. The annual Edinburgh Harp Festival, Ceilidh Culture, and the Scots Fiddle Festival are all right on my doorstep. Festivals such as Celtic Connections in Glasgow bring numerous world famous musicians to the city each year. Across Scotland there is also an enormous number of live music sessions in pubs, regular folk club events and ceilidhs, which provide plenty of more relaxed opportunities to take photographs of our amazing musicians in action.

Shindiggery | traditional music

Shindiggery | traditional music

We’re a large Edinburgh-based band playing traditional music. Our lineup includes fiddles, whistles, Scottish smallpipes, bodhran, button box, concertina, flute, guitar, octave mandolin and vocals. A big band with a big sound!

The band members first met through playing together in a weekly pub session in Edinburgh. A regular shindig in the Diggers, hence our name…

We’re lucky to know many musicians who write lovely music. We perform some of these tunes written by our friends alongside more traditional material.

The healing powers of the Scottish Mountains even go as far as to help heal the old tin can

2011-04-052

 

The healing powers of the Scottish Mountains even go as far as to help heal the old tin can .

Before i headed of today for our wee trip to Ullapool i noticed a wee pool under the old truck after checking it oot i found the water pump was leaking a wee bit , but as we were going to be heading doon the mountain i knew she would be ok and i could get some water on the way to keep the old wagon going .

I had to smile to myself as we headed off as the sun rose quickly i knew we were if for the warmest day of the year so far just oor luck lol.

Half way doon we stopped at a wee water fall to get water and check on the old girl

Rivers & water

I believe so much in the healing qualities of the mountains and yet again something showed me i am right because after filling up the truck with the water from the river the leak stopped and the journey to Ullapool and home went without and further problems simply MAGIC.

 

Pulling into Ullapool today it was so good to see so many people about good news for all the shops ,pubs etc

 

As always we had a lovely visit to Ullapool meeting 4 new friends and Mel got four new empty sweet jars from our friends that run the Mace shop doon at the harbour

 

love and light from all in the wee tin can x

Rassberries , Blueberries and Sgurr Mor

Waking this morning a little after 2.00am the rain gently dances on
the bus roof.
I smile at the thought that all the plants i planted yesterday will be
drinking well. What a feeling the soil on your hands and as each plant
was placed in its new home bees would appear as if to inspect their
new food source. The wee birds rushing to claim their new perch and
singing as if to encourage the fruits. Yesterday i was treated to the
sight of clouds colliding with Sgurr Mor no matter the times i have
seen this it still fills me with awe. And from the clouds 16 deer made
their way doon to the loch . Love and light SCOTLAND

Living a simple green life in the Scottish mountains.

Living a simple green life in the Scottish mountains. As spring races
up from sea level life is easy. The last few days have been spent
spring cleaning and refocusing on the simple life. So as the wind
gently charges our batteries and all is calm it is time to pack the
rucksack and get ready to head up into the high glens tomorrow with
the dogs and spend some time with the deer and the eagles and
hopefully a wee swim.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
