.KICK OFF . ( THIS TIME SCOTLAND )

 

 

 

 

                           KICK OFF

                       …………………….

 

The sleepless nights ….

Tossing and turning , the cold sweats

Dreams , hopes and wishes

wee nightmares dismissed…

 

The tension builds and builds as the days roll bye

kick off looms.

 

Finally the day arrives …..

Your head filled with the pipes 

your heart soaring with the eagles..

 

 

The ref whistle in mouth

and with a huge roar

HE BLOWS…..

 

 

Come on Scotland ……

 

THIS TIME THIS TIME …

GAS BOTTLE WOOD BURNER



Making a wee wodburner from a gas bottle is simple . no need for welding and to be able to install a heater for under £5.00 is music to my old wallet.and the real beauty is it takes very little to heat up the truck. and with all the insulation i have fitted the heat is retained throughout the night.

The next step will be to convert a wee botle to an oven to fit on top and above that will be a water tank .. grab as much energy from one wee log as possible




I hope you enjoy the wee film love and light from all in the wee mobile hovel here in the Scottish mountains.

Fwd: [dalefarm-solidarity] Dale Farm Bulletin 24th Sept - Update from court

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Dale Farm Solidarity <savedalefarm@gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 24 Sep 2011 22:14:16 +0100
Subject: [dalefarm-solidarity] Dale Farm Bulletin 24th Sept - Update from court
To: dalefarm-solidarity <dalefarm-solidarity@lists.ucrony.net>

*Update: We may need you to come down Monday night if the injunction is
lifted – please be ready.*

Sorry about the delay in getting this update together -- it's been a
furiously busy 24 hours, and an amazing week at Dale Farm and in the court!

On Friday in court, barristers for Dale Farm residents backed up by the
Gypsy Council, did a fantastic job before the Judge. It now looks like the
ground in parts of the former scrapyard cannot be dug up, so at least this
part will be saved from being turned into a rubbish dump:
http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16076105

At 4pm on Monday September 26, we'll receive a decision from the Judge about
the other arguments that were put forward, and we'll know if some other
plots at Dale Farm can be saved. The judge has also indicated that he is
open to a judicial review of the eviction, and we'll find out if this goes
forward. If it doesn't go forward, then the eviction could happen on
Tuesday morning, so please be ready to come down Monday night to Dale Farm.
If there is a judicial review, then the eviction will be delayed by several
more days.

We also learned a few more things: The judge said that Camp Constant and our
property cannot be removed by the Bailifs, including the two back
observation towers. However, Basildon Council keeps pressuring the judge to
give them powers to remove the front observation tower and scaffolding gate.
Tony Ball also admitted that he was continuing to pay for the rental of
heavy machinary, because their contract doesn't allow them to return it. It
is believed that the bungled operation is costing £1million/day.

We don't cost a million a day, but we do need some money. Just a fiver would
help - please respond to our emergency funding appeal. Buy Dale Farm a pint!
http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/2011/09/24/buy-dale-farm-a-pint-emergency-funding-appeal/

Solidarity action - we need you! Please spread the word: organise an event
to raise some money or keep attention, including media attention, on to what
is going on at Dale Farm. If you are running an event, please send details
to: savedalefarm@gmail.com and we will help spread the word. Also, link to
the website: http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/ , and the facebook page:
http://en-gb.facebook.com/people/Dale-Farm/100000205024856 and get people to
sign up to the call out: https://smsalerts.tachanka.org/dalefarm/

And sign the petition calling for a motion of No Confidence in Tony Balls,
belligerent Head of Basildon Council:
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/nofaithintonyballs/

We'll be sending out tweets, updating the website and facebook and sending
more bulletins on Monday as the court case continues, keep your ears to the
ground.

I've always been a fan of the Union of Concerned Scientists because they
are scientists and they are concerned, so how bad can they be right? (By
the way, if anyone mentions that I believe in science I'll deny it, what
with the witch hunts and cultural revolution coming down the pike). Here's
a link to a great resource on electric vehicles of all sorts and the (gulp)
scientific information that should be considered with this new technology.
As always it's worth mentioning that public transport and bicycles are a
far better choice than anything. Enjoy.

If you are like many Americans you get a new cell phone every year or so.
I won't even go into the need/reasoning behind this, but if you do, there
is still a need for your old cell phones. Check out 10 Places To Donate an

Fwd: [dalefarm-solidarity] We won in the high court- but we still have nowhere to go

---------- Forwarded message ----------

To: dalefarm-solidarity <dalefarm-solidarity@lists.ucrony.net>

We won in the court- but we still have nowhere to go


We have just heard the news that Dale Farm residents have won an injunction
in the court which postpones the eviction until at least Friday, 11.30am,
when the High Court will hear the case and make a decision on the eviction.
This is an important victory - it shows that pressure is working and that
Basildon Council is failing in its duty of care to the Dale Farm community.
Yet, the struggle to defend Dale Farm is not over. The extra week
intensifies the pressure on Basildon Council to work with the residents to
find an alternative legal site and to actually go through the proper process
and not resort to a forced eviction.


The recent offer from the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights to mediate
in the dispute still stands, and perhaps with additional pressure, we hope
Basildon Council will participate in negotiation to avoid an eviction. This
injunction comes soon after Europe's human rights watchdog released a
statement saying that long-term Traveller sites should be made legal even if
they may technically breach some planning regulations.


We are calling on supporters to come down to Dale Farm whenever they can -
especially on Friday when we hear the High Court's decision. Get in touch
with savedalefarm@gmail.com if you want to find out how to get involved in
the campaign. Dale Farm is easy to get to from London and is a very special
place.

He calls .
Not the gold chain for him.
But self worth . Hope and confidence.
His booty
But over the years i have stepped back from drug treatments and even
the view through an empty glass ditched long long ago.
Now i let it come and withoot fear of reprisals from animal actavists
i grab the wee shite by the scruff of its neck and ( like the winning
kick at this years rugby world cup ) boot its arse firmly into touch.

Heading South . No thanks .. As the skies herald the coming of my
favourite time of the year WINTER . Great arrows of geese call oot and
chatter as the leg it . Already the temp has reached near zero . But
inside the horse box it is warm due to all the hard work over the
summer . Even Mel has commented how warm the truck is. And although i
was at the scrapyard yesterday to get some bits to make a wee wood
burner this will be used to cook with. And again no heating bills in

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people
I had to kill because they p*$$ed me off.

Make do and mend

I love turning rubbish/broken items into things of use. The modern way
of things have to happen NOW is not for me . Time spent denailing wood
or trying to resolve a problem without simply buying the thing .
To me is what keeps me alert and happy

[dalefarm-solidarity] Important update on the eviction operation at Dale Farm

The public date of the eviction is the week of the 19th September, but
we still need supporters at Dale Farm. We have received unconfirmed
reports that part of the eviction operation may start tomorrow, and so
the more people on site the better. Please be ready to come to Dale
Farm in the morning, just in case -- you'll receive a txt if you've
signed up to txt alerts at https://smsalerts.tachanka.org/dalefarm/

Residents believe that the bailiffs and the police may attempt some
sort of operation early tomorrow morning. This is a very stressful
time for a lot of the residents- they are being made homeless by their
own council. They need our support.

If you are able to come down tomorrow, please do. If not, come down as
soon as possible. The police and bailiffs may try to stop people from
coming on site, so be ready to find ways to get on- it's a big site
and should be possible.

We have also received intelligence that the bulk of the police
operation will start with a briefing on Sunday the 18th to prepare for
the 19th, and that the police operation is being run out of Boreham
police station. The operation is planned to last one week, but
officers have been asked to block 10 days off just in case. The
bailiffs are believed to be running their operation out of Basildon.
The council has said they will be cutting off electricity to Dale Farm
on the 19th, but we have had reliable information that in order to
interfere with our ability to get information out in advance, that
they are considering cutting off power from the 16th.

Dale Farm is in easy reach of London. For directions on how to get
there see http://dalefarm.wordpress.com/contact and you can call the
Camp Constant site phone: 07583621312

Things to bring:
-warm clothes
-food & water
-notepads, pencils
-torches
-cameras for taking photo evidence

Things not to bring:
-offensive weapons
-Things you would not like the police to take off you

Legal info- write on your arm before you get here:
Dale Farm Legal Hotline: 07928 669 515
Birds Solicitors: 07966 234 994
Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors: 07659 111 192

What is crowd funding?

Crowdfunding is a new way of using technology to bring together like-minded individuals to donate, lend or invest money to support a cause, business or project.

The term Crowdfunding describes the activity by which a ‘large’ number of individuals giving money to one distinct activity within a given time scale. The most famous example of this is the Obama presidential campaign with over 2,379,102 supports on Facebook and over 100,000 followers on Twitter. The sum raised by Obamas small givers (those who donated $250 or less) through January 2008 was $47 million.

What is a crowd funding platform?

A website that allows individuals to donate, lend or invest in a cause, business or project. Though the concept of crowdfunding is relatively new, the internet technologies under pinning the website or platform are now mature, ensuring safe and secure financial transactions to take place.

What is the Third Sector?

Anything other than the private and public sector. Otherwise known as the voluntary sector, it encompasses charities, social enterprise and community groups.

What is SoLoCo?

SoLoCo is the crowdfunding website that connects Third Sector projects that benefit UK communities to interested donors and supporters. Unlike general charity giving, crowdfunding with SoLoCo is highly focused – you decide exactly where you want your money to go. To learn more about how SoLoCo works, please visit our 'How it Works' Page. We also have an FAQ section.

Little Victories Live Show! (1)

Little Victories Live Show! (1)

Little Victories will be playing the highly anticipated first show on Saturday 10th September in Stairway on Union Street. There will be a pre-show set from the DJ Malcolm McKenzie, as well as a club night til 3am afterwards!

To make the show a little bit more special the Victories have organised a LASER LIGHT SHOW which will easily rival anything that Pink Floyd do.

So bring safety specs...or live dangerously....the choice is yours!

There will also be an opportunity to buy our limited edition 6 TRACK MINI ALBUM. Copies will be strictly limited so expect your investment to be worth a mint on eBay in a years time.



So with all of that lovely stuff happening, how can you afford to miss it???

SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!

Wee Owlie Kidnapped ….

2011-06-292

 

Hi my name is wee owlie until a few days ago i lived at the Blackbus on the side of Loch Droma in the wonderful highlands of Scotland.

While my family were of filming and visiting the wonderful sites i was left to guard the wee hame.

Well one dark night a van pulled in , i thought they were turning roon nut no, before i knew what was happening i was bundled into the back of the  van  and am old smelly cloth was placed over me.

 

I heard the doors closing as we sped of , that was as i said a few days ago and apart from some men lifting the cloth and discussing how much they would get for me doon south i have not seen the light of day .

 

I miss my family so much the morning visits from Chloe and Wilkie the wee cats their gentle rubbing and the wee chats , i miss the dugs as well dylan and Custard even though Custard would often cock his leg up and pee all over me , i knew he loved me

 

I just pray for the day i am back safe and sound with my loving family on the  side of the loch .

 

I am so scared ……..

 

Owlie xx

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
