    Bit morbid perhaps, but I've often thought that a monoped ought to be able to purchase just one shoe. Why are they sold in 'pairs'? Even Bipeds might have different size feet and have to buy two pairs!

    I have been known to wear odd socks, but then I'm an odd person, so can get away with it

    Otherwise the latter would have to buy two pairs and have one 'pair' totally useless. Very expensive.

    It's bear-hunting season!




    As in ........WHERE'S BEAR?




    We no see Bear for months! It's well past hibernation waking-up time!



    Where is our fair Bear? On the stair? In the chair? Floating through the air? In the glare of a dangerous dare? Washing her hair? Not still in her lair?

    Is she a Mare? No, she's a bear! Where is Bear? She's ne'er to be seen! Is she eating a pear? Saying a prayer?

    She's a rare bear.

    Where is Bear? Is there a spare Bear? We want to share! Don't be square! We won't snare you, Bear! We swear! Don't be scared!

    I despair! This affair is so unfair! It's a nightmare!

    Come on Bear! We'll prepare you an eclair! Or a mohair shawl.....you'll look so debonair! Or some silverware!

    If you come there'll be a fanfair! What a blare!
    Don't scare us, Bear, don't glare or stare.

    We'll declare there is none to compare with Bear,; but she's as rare as a hare on a thoroughfare in Kildare.

    Make us aware, Bear, 'cos we CARE!!

    WHERE IS BEAR?

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well on this thoughtful, scrumptious
    and traditional Thursday!




    When did YOU first hear about lupus?

    Most people in the UK only hear about lupus for the first time
    when they, a family member, or a friend are diagnosed with the
    disease.



    This World Lupus Day, May 10th 2018, we want to raise awareness
    of this problem. By not being aware of lupus people are more likely
    to experience a delay in getting a diagnosis and less likely to be
    able to effectively support someone else living with the disease.

    To help with this campaign, we would like you to share your
    experiences of the first time you heard about lupus. You could;

    - Record a video

    - Share a photo or image

    - Write your story

    - Share using the hashtags #WorldLupusDay and #LupusAwareness

    Please share your story with us and we will be happy to post it to
    our supporters through our social media channels (Facebook,
    Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat).



    What is Lupus?

    LUPUS - STRANGE NAME FOR AN ILLNESS, ISN'T IT?

    Yes - it's the Latin word for wolf. Lupus vulgaris, a severe facial
    rash rarely seen now, was once thought to resemble a wolf's bite.

    SO WHAT IS LUPUS?

    It's an incurable immune system illness, probably genetic in origin
    and mainly suffered by females. It can affect any part of the body
    and that's the danger.

    AND WHAT IS THE DANGER?

    Lupus can produce many symptoms and family doctors often fail to
    recognise it. Meanwhile, a number of major organs can be
    damaged in an irreversible way.

    WHICH MAJOR ORGANS ARE LIABLE TO DAMAGE?

    Principally the kidneys and the skin, also the heart, lungs and
    brain.

    SO WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS TO LOOK OUT FOR?

    The two major symptoms are joint and muscle pain and an
    extreme tiredness that won't go away no matter how much you
    rest.

    Rashes, depression, anaemia, feverishness, headaches, possible
    hair loss and mouth ulcers may all be part of the pattern of lupus.

    Noticeably, whilst the two major symptoms are invariably present,
    people with lupus can differ greatly in their symptoms and how the
    illness can affect them - life-threatening for a few, very mild for
    some. Miscarriage, often recurrent, is another unhappy
    complication of lupus.

    THE SYMPTOMS - IS LUPUS CONFUSED WITH OTHER
    CONDITIONS?

    Yes - worldwide it's acknowledged as being more common than
    leukemia, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis, and those
    conditions (and others) share a number of similar symptoms >>>

    Stow Horse Fair



    Where: Stow on the Wold, Gloucs in fields on the Maugersbury
    Road
    When: Thursday nearest 12th May
    Time: All day

    This is a traditional fair for gypsies and travelling people to meet
    up and trade and it dates back literally hundreds of years, the
    Charter being granted in 1476.

    It began as a sheep fair, the Cotswolds being prime country for the
    wool trade, but has evolved into a horse fair something like the
    June event at Appleby (see separate listing) with lots of equines,
    horse-drawn caravans and sightseers keen to soak up the
    atmosphere and buy from the many stalls.

    Travellers will be there for a few days around the Fair date, usually
    beginning to arrive on the preceding Monday, and will return again
    in October for the second of the bi-annual fairs (the May fair is the
    bigger of the two).

    Helpful Hints

    In 2018 it will be on Thursday May 10th.

    Parking will be available on the Cricket Field and King George’s
    Field. Be prepared for muddy conditions in the fields!!

    Alfie, the Sleazy wants a title.

    Do you think he deserves one?

    In the absence of Queen Bear, I reckon you're the Viceroy, so perhaps you could get your dubbing sword out and do the honours?



    And while you're in a dubbing mood, I reckon I deserve an upgrade.
