    The forum is dead.

    I reckon everyone is either

    A) still out Christmas shopping

    Or

    B) at a party.
    AND I HAVEN'T BEEN INVITED!


    It can't be A), because the shops have shut now!

    So it must be B).

    There's this really crazy film on TV at the mo...... Warlords of .
    Atlantis, made in 1978, so you can imagine what the monsters look like!

    Two of the stars are Peter Gilmore (Onedin Line), and Doug McLure (Trampas in The Virginian).
    It's complete with token screaming woman!



    Oh, and the pathetic cowardly one gets eaten by a monster, as usual.

    host the annual national charity awareness and
    fundraising campaign #UKCharityWeek.

    Kingdom an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for
    charities high on the national agenda at a time of the year when
    people are statistically at their most giving.

    #UKCharityWeek is always held within the first full week of
    December, which in the case of 2017 is 4th-10th December.


    What is taking place during #UKCharityWeek 2017?

    Wildlife Conservation Day



    The world’s best loved species are being slaughtered by
    widespread and dangerous criminal networks. Driven by a
    voracious demand for illegal animal parts and products, the black
    market in wildlife rivals illegal arms and drugs. Increasingly,
    wildlife traffickers are the same kingpins involved in trafficking
    people and arms and narcotics.

    WWF joined the call to action put out by Secretary of State
    Secretary Clinton to raise awareness and engage conservationists
    like you on Wildlife Conservation Day, December 4.



    Wildlife crime is a serious crime, not a distant problem in a
    faraway country

    It is a global challenge that spans continents and crosses oceans.
    It matters, and not just because we care about elephants, rhinos
    and tigers. Park rangers on the frontlines of conservation are being
    killed. Local communities that depend on wildlife for tourism or
    sustenance are being robbed of their livelihoods. Corruption and
    intimidation are weakening law enforcement efforts. Unscreened
    wildlife and wildlife parts increase the risk of human health
    pandemics such as bird flu. And regional security is compromised
    as militarized groups cash in on this lucrative and rapidly growing
    trade, using it to finance insurrection and even terrorist activity.

    Have a brilliant and safe day all whatever you have planned. I will

    About World Soil Day

    World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on 5 December as a means
    to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and advocating
    for the sustainable management of soil resources.

    The Global Soil Partnership is dedicating World Soil Day 2017 to
    the theme "Caring for the Planet starts from the Ground". Soil is a
    finite natural resource. On a human time-scale it is non-renewable.
    However, despite the essential role that soil plays in human
    livelihoods, there is a worldwide increase in degradation of soil
    resources due to inappropriate management practices, population
    pressure driving unsustainable intensification and inadequate
    governance over this essential resource.

    Caring for the Planet starts from the Ground

    World Soil Day 2017 activities aim to communicate messages on
    the importance of soil quality for food security, healthy ecosystems
    and human well-being.

    International Volunteer Day



    Our campaign for International Volunteer Day (IVD) 2017,
    “Volunteers Act First. Here. Everywhere.”, celebrated worldwide on
    December 5, is a recognition of the positive solidarity of volunteers
    around the world who answer calls in times of crisis, helping save
    lives today and supporting those who want to continue living their
    lives with dignity tomorrow. #VolunteersActFirst

    International Ninja Day

    Espionage, Assassination, Guerrilla warfare, and sabotage, these
    are the skills of the ninja. Clad in their signature black, they
    appear from the depths of the night like a hawk on stolen wings,
    striking their quarry and disappearing again without leaving a
    trace.

    They are rumored to be the masters of Kuji-Kiri, an eastern
    magical practice that made them capable of combining their
    natural ability to move like ghosts with supernatural powers.
    International Ninja Day is dedicated to remembering and honoring
    these ancient warriors of China and Japan.....

    Here's a link re the Haggis Hunt (2010) ....


    Scotsman.com's internationally renowned interactive game, the
    Haggis Hunt starts today, 30 November, in association with
    Mackie's 'Haggis' Potato Crisps.

    Managing Director, Andrew Richardson said "we are delighted that
    Mackie's have come on board and added another dimension to the
    Haggis hunting season."

    Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the quirky online game - which
    runs from St Andrew's Day until Burns Night on 25 January -
    attracts thousands of players worldwide. It has developed a cult
    following and drives significant traffic to scotsman.com. Last year
    the site received over 4.5 million impressions in one month and
    entries were received from 72 different countries as far afield as
    Trinidad & Tobago, The Cayman Islands and Hong Kong. Most
    popular with web users in Scotland, England and USA, entrants
    also lived in more obscure locations like Uzbekistan and Equatorial
    Guinea.

    What is the Haggis Hunt?

    The game gives each visitor the chance to spot a Scottish Haggis
    that could wander in front of one of ten webcams at any time.
    Webcams are located throughout Scotland, including St Andrews
    Fairmont, Edinburgh Castle and a new addition for 2010, a
    webcam in the heart of the Mackie's Crisp Factory, where you can
    see crisps being produced. In addition there are international
    webcams situated in Times Square, New York and the Eiffel Tower,
    Paris. In 2009, there were 420,000 recorded Haggis sightings.

    Why participate?

    Visitors can search our ten live Haggis webcams to catch a glimpse
    of the elusive Haggis. Spotting a Haggis gives entry into the prize
    draw to win a variety of prizes from Mackie's crisps to a round of
    golf for four people.



    Catching a glimpse of the extremely rare golden Haggis gives
    entry into the grand prize draw and the chance to win one night's
    stay in the luxury accommodation of the Kingdom of Fife Suite at
    the St Andrews Fairmont Hotel, including dinner for two people. In
    addition to this fantastic prize there is an invite to visit the
    Mackie's crisp factory in Perthshire and take home a selection of
    Mackie's potato crisps in six mouth-watering flavours, including
    Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper, Cherry Tomato & Herbs and Scotch
    Bonnet Chilli Pepper.

    I used to love wasting my time people watching - especially
    the web cam positioned in New York!

    I managed to spot a couple of Haggii but didn't win so much as
    a bean - it was so addictive though!

    Most definitely wouldn't have the time now but have fond
    memories of this one. Happy days!

    Must admit though I've never heard of the Hummingbird hunt
    mentioned by B*C.
