    I've just had some pasta agli'olio, with an awful lot of garlic.

    I am going to reek tomorrow!

    Good job I'm not going anywhere or seeing anyone!

    Sincere apologies to all - missed this one yesterday. However ...
    you may choose a date of your choice, to support SPANA’s work.

    Join the SPANA World Tea Party and help the working animals of
    the world.

    You can raise funds for sick and injured working animals this
    summer by hosting a SPANA World Tea Party.



    Get involved by holding a traditional British tea party, a Moroccan
    mint tea party, an Ethiopian coffee morning, an Indian chai tea
    party, or try another of our world-themed tea parties on 8 July, or
    a date of your choice, to support SPANA’s work.

    There’s a special free pack available to download for everyone
    taking part that includes top tips on how to make your party a
    success along with a number of delicious recipe ideas such as
    Moroccan orange and almond cake, plus new for 2017- a banana
    pupcake recipe so your four-legged friends can enjoy the fun too!
    You can also order your free pack by post.



    The funds raised from donations will help SPANA provide more free
    veterinary treatment to working animals in developing countries
    across the world, including Morocco and Ethiopia. Many of the
    world’s poorest people rely entirely on these animals for their
    livelihoods, but without SPANA they often have no access to
    veterinary care, or the means to pay for it.

    With a steaming pot of tea, delicious cakes and great conversation,
    you can help working animals and have a wonderful time too!

    Sea Sunday

    Sea Sunday 2017 will be celebrated on Sunday 9th July

    On Sea Sunday the Catholic Church, along with other churches,
    remembers seafarers and prays for them, their families and those
    who support them. It is our principal fundraising and awareness
    raising event of the year.

    You will find more information and resources about Sea Sunday
    within this section of the website. Just click the blue links. Please
    contact us if you would like more information about how you can
    help celebrate Sea Sunday.

    Listen to this Sea Sunday audio recording with Bishop Paul Mason,
    our Bishop Promoter for England & Wales. There is also a Sea
    Sunday Pause for Thought by Fr Colum Kelly and an audio
    recording with a seafarer about Life at Sea and how AoS' support
    makes a difference. Download the Vatican's Sea Sunday 2017
    Message >>>

    What We Do

    The Apostleship of the Sea serves seafarers from across the world,
    regardless of belief, nationality or race. In all the main ports in
    Great Britain our team of chaplains and volunteer ship visitors visit
    thousands of seafarers each year, meeting their needs through the
    provision of help, support and advice.



    http://www.apostleshipofthesea.org.uk/sea-sunday

    ^^^ Please refer to site for further info



    Sea Sunday

    Sea Sunday is the day which many Christian Churches set aside to
    remember and pray for seafarers and their families and give
    thanks for their lives and work.

    It is officially held on the second Sunday in July.

    During Sea Sunday, charities such as the Apostleship of the Sea,
    The Mission to Seafarers and the Sailors' Society as well as non-
    denominational groups such as Sea Cadets conduct fundraisers,
    hold parades, and run awareness campaigns about life at sea.



    Sea Sunday celebrations in Mauritius

    Sea Sunday is supported by The Mission to Seafarers and the
    Sailors' Society. Many churches around the world hold
    celebrations, services and collections to support the work of
    seafarers around the world.

    In the Catholic Church, Sea Sunday is supported by the
    Apostleship of the Sea. A second collection is held during Catholic
    Sea Sunday Mass, with all funds raised going to the Apostleship of
    the Sea to support its work. It is a day of remembrance, prayer
    and celebration, and an opportunity to think about and thank
    those seafarers who work tirelessly throughout the year bringing
    us goods we often take for granted.

    About us

    Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice

    Chestnut Tree House is a children’s charity providing hospice care
    services and community support for children and young people
    with progressive life-shortening conditions throughout East and
    West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire.

    The hospice

    There are potentially 1,000 families with life-limited children in
    Sussex. Chestnut Tree House offers support for the whole family
    including psychological and bereavement support, end of life and
    short break care and sibling support.

    It currently costs well over £3.5m each year to provide all the care
    services provided by Chestnut Tree House. Families are never
    charged for their care and less than 7p in every pound is funded
    by the government, so we rely heavily on the generosity, help and
    support of the people of Sussex.

    At Chestnut Tree House our goal is to provide the best quality of
    life for children, young people and their families, and to offer a
    total package of practical, social and spiritual support throughout
    each child’s life, however short it may be.

    Have you heard of the Saola, aka the 'Asian Unicorn'?

    Today is World Saola Day. This species was discovered by WWF
    researchers in 1992 and now we're working to save this critically
    endangered beauty.

    https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/saola




    Hunting

    Saola is threatened primarily by hunting, rather than habitat loss.
    The main hunting threat comes from commercial poaching, not
    subsistence hunting by local people.



    Particularly dangerous for Saola is the setting of thousands of wire
    cable snares in its range by professional poachers. The scale of the
    problem is staggering.

    Quang ox and Asian unicorn. The latter has a double meaning:
    Yes, the forest dweller has a beautiful set of horns atop its white
    spot-speckled head. However, the prized mammal is seen so
    infrequently by humans that it now feels like something out of a
    child’s fairytale.
