The Death of the grid in an Independent Scotland

the national grid will die a death in an Independent Scotland .. we
will all have micro generation in our houses and business doing away
with the bills , while at the same time creating 1000,s of jobs
inventing creating and building new forms of energy . then selling
this off to the rest of the world bringing in huge amounts of money to
be invested in our kids future.. all to often in the past our ideas
have been taken up abroad and we sit back and let it happen. nae more
time for us to look to the future . love and light my friend

Right tae a simple life

The right tae live a simple life is one i chose many years ago and as
far as i am concerned the more they push the more free we are .. if i
choose tae meet up (although i am more of a wee hermit noooadays )
with friends and dance then dance we will .. as always when times are
tough Society and the powers that be look tae blame someone anyone ..
The higher they build the fences the more they simply imprison
themselves... love and light the wee minger on the hill

Devils Ditch book cover and page 1

Devils Ditch


The smoke from the log fire drifted up the lane . The Oak's leaves I was resting against playing with it before allowing it tae head skywards..
As far as the eye could see vehicles of every description were parked nose to tail . Over the last week people had began arriving from all over the country, till now the lane and surrounding ones all began to fill..

In the last rays from a perfect summers day , dogs barked and ganged together to patrol up and doon the track ..

Smells from cooking , exhausts and the occasional spliff mingled with music tae fill your lungs and soul with life on a site ..

around the fire old and new friends told tales of the last year or so on the road .. As had happened over recent times quickly the chatter moved tae tales of brutality both from locals and not tae mention the police .

I listened as each tale was told and still it shocked me . Since leaving the army and joining up with the travellers my eyes had been opened to the hidden terror just below the surface of this so called civilized country...

I had at that time been on the road some 2 years and like everyone around the fire I too had stories of police intimidation and outright violence too the point now where as far as I was concerned it was simply survival and anything was fair game …

From all the corners of the country we had been herded ever tighter and tighter , never given the chance tae work or simply tae repair our vehicles... Things had become more and more edgy till

A82 road - the way hame tae the highlands

A82 road - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A82 road

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Love and light from the wee rusty tin can here in the Scottish highlands............ Alba gu brath

The A82 is a trunk road in Scotland. It is the principal route from Lowland Scotland to the western Scottish Highlands, running from Glasgow to Inverness, going by Loch LomondGlen Coe and Fort William. It is the second longest primary A-road in Scotland after the A9, which is the other principal route to Inverness from the south of Scotland. In the Gàidhealtachd (the Gaelic-speaking parts of Scotland), the A82 is equipped with bilingual road signs - currently the only long distance trunk route in the Highlands from the South to be thus furnished.

Our friend Rima and her wee tour of Scotland

Greetings friends, 

I'm writing to you because you either live in Scotland or have friends there... and I thought you might like to know about some Russian Storytelling...

Tom and I are off to Scotland next week to tell the incomparable Russian Folktale Ivashko Medvedko - Little Ivan, Bear Child in four different places...

Tom Hirons will weave for you the wonders and terrors of this tale, and I'll embellish it with accordion music and artwork, which will also be for sale.

There's a flyer attached, and here are the dates:

          Tickets - £7 - available at the 'Present Time' gift shop, 2/3 High St Moffat or from the theatre
  • Saturday July 28th - Elshieshields Tower, Lochmaben
          Tickets - £5 – call 01387 811 470 This one's a fundraiser for the wonderful Galgael Trust - call 0141 427 3070 or send them an email on mail@galgael.org for more info.
  • Saturday August 4th - Croft on the Isle of Lewis
        If you live on Lewis, contact Sharon Blackie of Two Ravens Press and Earthlines Magazine - info@earthlines.org.uk  - for more info.


Tom's written more about all these shows here.


We'd be super grateful if you could forward this email to anyone in Scotland you think might be interested, as we're setting off north in our little red van, not knowing if any tickets have sold, and it's a long way to go ...

Hope to see you and yours under the northern mists around the fire of our story soon...

Warmest wishes

Rima

Love and light from the wee rusty tin can here in the Scottish highlands............ Alba gu brath

email sent back too M. Walker Ministry of Justice with regards COLIN NORRIS an innocent man rotting in jail

Many thanks Karen
for getting back to me
I do understand how the law works but i sent the email and link to
Colin in the HOPE someone there would take the time to just watch the
film and i am sure like many many people you will see Colin should NOT
be in jail or at the very least have a retrial ASAP
i also understand how very very busy you all are but this is a man
That WILL do 30 years in jail as he will NOT plead guilty for
something he has NOT done
please take the time to watch the film and i am sure you will want to
help Colin and his family
love and light

Blood from a stone. Looks like the hermit is off tae jail..

Final demand from council for £715 for council tax arrived today.
Although we have written to them explaining we are NOT on benifits .
(Although we are entitled to them due to Mels illness ..) And at the
moment book sales are poor other income ie ads on my blog have tailed
off. We are living on less than £20 a week.
So it looks like the hermit is off tae jail. At least i will get 3
meals a day. LOVE AND LIGHT. see you all later.

Thank you for your letter dated 20 April, which has been passed to me for a response. Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in responding. Please understand that neither Government Ministers nor their officials can comment on or intervene in specific cases. However, I can address the general issues raised in your letter about Colin Norris.

The fundamental principle of our criminal justice system is that a person is innocent until proven guilty, and if there is not sufficient evidence to prove the alleged offence then the case will not proceed. It is the overriding duty of the Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that the right person is charged with the right offence. They must balance factors for and against prosecution carefully and fairly. During the course of proceedings they must continually review the evidence against a defendant and must be satisfied at all stages that there is enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction on the charge in question.

There are also other important safeguards in the criminal justice system against the conviction of the innocent, including the high standard of proof whereby it is for the prosecution to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt, the right to legal representation, and the right to call any witnesses to challenge and test evidence through cross-examination. In addition, there is the right to seek leave to appeal against conviction or sentence.

It is an important principle that people who are convicted should have the right to seek leave to apply to a higher court to review their conviction and/or sentence. However, in Crown Court cases, an appeal does not proceed automatically. A defendant must first obtain permission or leave to appeal either from the trial judge or the Court of Appeal. The Court will not lightly intervene in a case which has been given careful consideration in the Crown Court, but if the Court of Appeal is satisfied that there are reasonable grounds it will give permission for the appeal to proceed.

The time period for lodging a notice of application for leave to appeal is normally 28 days. A purely discretionary extension of time for leave to appeal may be granted. However the defendant must explain why the application for appeal was not served in time.

I hope you find the above information helpful.

Yours sincerely,

M. Walker

I produced the BBC documentary about Colin's case and believe strongly that he is entirely innocent. I hope the CCRC will hasten their review of the new expert evidence and refer Colin's case to the Court of Appeal. I'd be happy to provide further information. ls@insidetime.org or call me 07528 44 33 35

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
