    future. The festival starts on the 23rd September (the

    Dyslexia Awareness Week



    3rd - 9th October

    The theme: ‘Identification of dyslexia’

    Getting assessed and actually knowing if you are, or
    might be, dyslexic is a huge issue at any stage of any
    individual’s personal dyslexic journey.

    Therefore, for 2016 we have worked with the other major
    dyslexia charities namely Dyslexia Scotland, Helen Arkell,
    Xtrodinary People and Dyslexia Action to agree on the
    theme for this year’s Dyslexia Awareness Week to be
    ‘Identification of dyslexia’.

    The theme in Scotland will be ‘Dyslexia: Did you know...’
    and will run from 7 – 12 November.

    World Space Week



    Since its United Nations declaration in 1999, World Space Week
    has grown into the largest public space event on Earth. More
    than 1,800 events in 73 countries celebrated the benefits of
    space and excitement about space exploration in 2015. With
    our new Theme “Remote Sensing – Enabling Our Future” we
    aim to inspire even more events around the world in October
    2016.

    “The General Assembly declares 4 to 10 October World
    Space Week to celebrate each year at the international level
    the contributions of space science and technology to the
    betterment of the human condition”

    St Francis Day


    Good morning lovely Alphabettys in Happy Chatty Land!

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful
    and glorious Tuesday!

    Today it's also ....

    World Animal Day



    Each year 4 October is World Animal Day! These 24 hours
    are the chance to give back and celebrate animal life in all its
    shapes and sizes, from mice to elephants, and recognise the
    positive influence they have on our lives.



    This special day was established in 1931 by ecologists in
    Florence in Italy and has now spread around the world,
    celebrating not just endangered and rare species, but all
    kinds of animal life.



    And the date 4 October is no coincidence - it is the same day
    as the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of
    animals.



    There are lots of ways to get involved on World Animal Day,
    like donating tins of cat and dog food to local shelters or adopt
    an animal. Schools can organise trips to shelters and farms,
    and in the workplace, why not try a Bring Your Dog to Work
    Day? You could even organise an animal related quiz night to
    raise money for animal charities.



    The official World Animal Day website, has loads of ideas to
    get you started and going wild for wildlife on World Animal
    Day! See: worldanimalday.org.uk/

    Have a brilliant day all whatever you have planned - I will
    catch up later.

    A few of the celebratory/awareness days are indeed American
    but I take the majority of days/ideas from sites such as
    these:

    awarenessdays.co.uk/awareness-days-calendar/

    projectbritain.com/

    Fortunately with 'World Days' - everyone celebrates them
    so I can pick and choose which sites to use, including
    the American ones.

    Today it's ....

    World Smile Day





    World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday in the month
    of October every year.

    The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by
    Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester,
    Massachusetts.

    Harvey Ball is known to have created the Smiley Face in
    1963.



    The World’s first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999
    and has been held annually since.



    After Harvey died in 2001, the “Harvey Ball World Smile
    Foundation” was created to honour his name and
    memory.

    The slogan of the Smile Foundation is “improving this world,
    one smile at a time.”




    The Foundation continues as the official sponsor of World
    Smile Day each year.

    The message of the World Smile Day is

    “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile.”

    Friendship Friday





    Celebrate Friendship Friday in your school

    Friendship Friday is a non-school uniform day that
    celebrates the importance of friendship while raising
    vital funds for Kidscape. Pupils donate £1 to come to
    school dressed in yellow, the colour of friendship.



    Kidscape's motivation



    Good friends are invaluable to our success and happiness;
    they give us confidence, make us feel valued and offer
    support and love when we need it.



    At Kidscape, we see many children in desperate need of
    a friend, and witness the drastic difference it makes to
    their happiness and self-esteem when they find one.



    Friendship Friday is an interactive and fun way to
    promote friendship, anti-bullying and inclusive behaviour
    across the school.



    When is it?

    Friendship Friday takes place this year on Friday 7th
    October. However, your school can host their own day on
    any Friday of the year.

    Actually, you can buy DIY cholesterol kits from Boots. I've used them in the past.
    Or there are online testing places.
    The best tests are ones that give you results for HDL and LDL, rather than just total cholesterol, as it is the LDL figure that is the important one to keep down.

    World Octopus Day





    As the name suggests, World Octopus Day celebrates one of
    the most distinctive creatures living on the planet today; the
    octopus.



    Octopuses are worthy of appreciation for a number of reasons.

    First of all, they are one of earth’s great survivors. Indeed,
    despite their relatively short life span, octopus fossils date back
    more than 300 million years, meaning that they pre-date even
    dinosaurs.



    ^^^ Octopus uses coconut shell as armour

    They are also highly intelligent, with around 500 million neurons
    located in their brains and arms, allowing them to bypass their
    instincts, learn lessons and solve problems.



    ^^^ The Blue-ringed octopus is one of the world's most
    venomous marine animals: it can kill you in one bite, there is no
    antivenom. Despite their small size, 12 to 20 cm (5 to 8 in),
    and relatively docile nature, they are dangerous to humans if
    provoked


    In addition, they are visually stunning, coming in various different
    colours and shapes, while the Giant Pacific Octopus is able to
    grow to weigh more than 600 pounds!



    ^^^ The Giant Pacific Octopus is considered to be long-lived
    compared to other species, with lifespans that average 3–5
    years in the wild


    So how should you celebrate World Octopus Day? How about a
    trip to a sea life centre? Alternatively, put aside a small section
    of your day to simply learn more about these fascinating
    creatures.

    King Harold Day



    King Harold Day is a medieval festival held in
    the town of Waltham Abbey, Essex, to commemorate
    Harold, the last Saxon King of England.

    Harold Godwinson, was appointed Earl of Essex and East
    Anglia by Edward the Confessor, and then succeeded his
    father as Earl of Wessex.



    On the death of Edward the Confessor, Harold was crowned
    King Harold II of England at Westminster Abbey on 6th
    January 1066.



    On 14th October 1066, following an invasion led by William,
    Duke of Normandy, a battle was fought at Senlac Hill near
    Hastings, during which Harold was killed.



    William defeated the Saxons, and was crowned William I of
    England, or William the Conqueror.

    Harold’s body was eventually identified on the battlefield by
    his handfast wife, Edith Swan-Neck. She took him back to
    Waltham for burial. Harold was Lord of the Manor of Waltham,
    and had founded its priory in thanksgiving for being cured of
    paralysis after he had prayed at the Holy Cross of Waltham.

    King Harold Day was held for the first time in 2004.

    Held on the nearest Saturday to 14th October each year, this
    event has proved to be very popular attracting visitors from
    far and wide, and is an established part of the town’s
    calendar.

    Through these pages you can find out more about the event
    and about Harold himself.

    2016 is a very special year for us in Waltham Abbey as it is
    the 950th anniversary of the Coronation of King Harold II, the
    three great battles of 1066 and King Harold’s death.



    We have a programme of special events to mark this, and King
    Harold Day will reflect the anniversary.

    and cross 13 iconic bridges, culminating in Tower Bridge where
    we’ll celebrate the day’s achievement.

    It’s a family occasion, and everyone is welcome. Join us and
    together we can walk towards a future without diabetes.

    Erm, yes well, that was my pathetic attempt at being ego-boosted!
    I had just reached 20,000 posts!

    Luckily Colin and Gill spotted it and started a thread for pathetic little moi!

    I haven't got my 20k badge yet. I guess they aren't given out at weekends!



    I was a bit disappointed before, as my Muse thread got mentioned in Martin's weekly doobry as a Tip of the Week or whatever, but I didn't get a badge for that.

    Hi Chieveley .....

    It's been a lovely day here too, I was out gardening for a
    good part of the day, also did a bit of early comping and
    got my washing out on the line and dried to perfection!
    Happy days .... I'm easily pleased!

    Did you have an enjoyable walk? I love walking, especially
    at this time of year.

    Yay!



    ..... and breathe .......

    *Phew!* You naughty little tease you!

    When I saw your post I thought I had made a glaringly
    obvious mistake in mine that the whole world could see but
    me!

    I kept reading over my post, googled tum-ti-tum-ti-tum
    to see if I could get an itsy bitsy inkling of a clue.

    Anyhow ..... YAY .....

    Big congrats on your 20,000 posts!
    (I can see it now )



    Dodgy ((hug)) for not getting a badge

    Yes good walk, collected some conkers to try & keep the spiders at bay. Wondering if they would work in the shed. And well done Pyxis, 20,000 posts.
