    What does "Lonnen ploat aareet scran" mean?

    I know aareet = all right. Dunno the rest, though.



    In fact, don't understand most of it.

    What's a smoggie? Is it a cat lost in the fog?

    When I was looking for Geordie Day pics earlier, I found this..... the Armstrong Bridge in Jesmond Dene...... which rang a bell. Isn't that your trip-trap bridge Colin?







    Although this one, also in Jesmond Dene, looks more like a billy-goats Bruff bridge........ and there could be a troll lurking there..........?

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful,
    fun-filled and fittingly scrumptious Monday!


    Swan Upping 2017



    Swan Upping - the annual census of the swan population on the
    River Thames

    This year’s Swan Upping will start on Monday 17th July departing
    from Sunbury lock cut, and will finish at Abingdon Bridge,
    Oxfordshire on Friday 21st July.


    David Barber, the Queen's Swan Marker

    Announcing the schedule for Swan Upping, David Barber reported:

    “There has been a consistent decrease in cygnet numbers over
    recent years and we are very much hoping that we will see a
    reversal in this trend in 2017.

    There have been many reports of large brood numbers on the
    river. However, the risks posed to both young cygnets and the
    adult birds continue to affect the number that survive each year.

    In addition to the natural predators the swans face every day,
    there has been a disappointing increase in reported dog attacks
    that have caused immense and unnecessary suffering and deaths
    within the mute swan population.


    Young cygnets orphaned as a result of
    a dog attack


    Furthermore, we have had reports of eggs being stolen, nesting
    swans being attacked by vandals and swans being shot.

    "We ask members of the public who walk their dogs in the vicinity
    of nesting swans or young cygnets to please keep their dogs under
    control. These attacks are so easily avoided and they cause such
    devastation to the swan population.

    "We are delighted to have many primary schools visiting Swan
    Upping again this year. We believe that teaching young children to
    respect and nurture the wildlife that surrounds them provides a
    solid foundation for the future conservation and protection of mute
    swans and other creatures that live on or near our rivers.”

    Governments, civil society organizations, legal associations,
    students and activists around the globe will celebrate World Day
    for International Justice on July 17th.

    World Day for International Justice recognizes the nascent and
    strengthening system of international justice that has emerged
    since the Nuremburg and Tokyo Trials after World War II.

    Numerous efforts to provide justice and redress for the most
    unspeakable acts of inhumanity have brought forth increasingly
    powerful international justice mechanisms from the International
    Court of Justice, to the ad hoc tribunals of Rwanda and the former
    Yugoslavia and, as of July 1st of this year, the historic International
    Criminal Court (ICC).

    The last century has been the bloodiest in human history with
    hundreds of millions of casualties of mass rape, forced expulsion,
    disappearances, torture, slavery and other assaults on human
    dignity......
