Speaking with a brother blogger it came to our notice that an entire, albeit sad demographic ,could be benefited by our blogs. Missing Children. Just think about how if I post,repost or "Reblog" the face and facts about a missing child and my brother blogger does the same (actually he started this) and you do the same, and then so and so does so on his/her blog etc etc....

http://findmadeleine.com/home.html Check their website.
I presume we all know the story of Madeleine, (if not please check their parents web site) the police in UK have just updated a picture as shown, and her parents are pushing high profile publicity again. And because of our blog sites, Facebook, Twitter and other social sites. We can all help by publicising,posting or re-posting what ever, and if Madeleine is out there someone might see, and report. And we can only try to repatriate parents and daughter. Hope my little bit will lead to bigger and fruitful results. Thank you.
This is a new age-progression image of Madeleine, commissioned by the Metropolitan Police.
Madeleine was born in May 2003 – a long-awaited and very much longed for little girl. She lives in the village of Rothley in Leicester, with her mummy and daddy and little brother and sister, Sean and Amelie.
Madeleine is a very happy little girl with an outgoing personality. She has always been a very popular little person, appealing to both children and adults alike with her funny and engaging chatter. She has many friends who obviously miss her dearly. Despite her young age, it often felt like Madeleine had been on this earth before.
Like most girls her age, she likes dolls and dresses (and anything pink and sparkly) but with a definite taste for action-adventure too! She has an incredible amount of energy and even as a little baby, didn’t seem to need much rest. She enjoys running and swimming and is an Everton fan like her mum and grandad.
Madeleine has always been a wonderfully loving and caring big sister to Sean and Amelie. It was certainly not the quietest house on the planet with lots of giggling, singing and the inevitable odd bit of mischief! For Sean and Amelie, there is without doubt, a very important person missing in their life.
Madeleine is a warm, life-enriching little person and will never fail we’re sure, to bring joy into the life of anyone she may encounter.\

Liebster Blog Award
Gemma was kind enough to nominate me for this award and it with great honour that I accept it. Pop along to her site and say hello, she will welcome your visit. But as Gemma said on her site it is stressful, not only answering the questions but the nominating of other blogs can be very stressful. So please bear with me, thanks.
One rule of accepting the Liebster Blog award is to tell five things about myself that you don’t already know.
Here it goes:
1. I started playing the guitar at the age of 15.
2. I once hitch-hiked to Newcastle, approx 360 miles, with a friend, and we arrived at the pub we agreed to meet my geordie friends at 5.55pm. Making our journey about 12hrs. Our journey is a great story in the waiting.. My co conspirator realised he had lost a wellington boot. Three days later when returned home we found his wellington boot, on the side of the road standing upright exactly where we started our journey days earlier…..
3. I was a baby when born. Very very young boy.
4. My grand-dad lied about his age to join the Navy in the 1st World war.
5. I was supposed to have my tonsils out when 10 years old. I chickened out and ran from the hospital. Still got them. Never had a problem with them. It was a common thing, in those days with asthmatic children.
The second rule for accepting the Liebster Blog award is to pass it on to 5 unassuming, but deserving souls. I will pass this on, and I REALLY don’t want to seem ungrateful, but these award things are getting very stressful,not so much the awards so much, it is the rules, so if you feel the same, I don’t want you to feel any obligation (other than to thank me for thinking of you) so here it goes – again…

5. Polly. http://pollysspace.wordpress.com/
Hope all was done okay, and my nominees enjoy…

The three pictures are entrance door way into Battle Abbey/Battlefield. East Sussex.
Battle Abbey was founded to commemorate the battle, and dedicated in 1095. The high altar of the Abbey church was reputedly on the spot where Harold died. The Abbey gateway is still the dominant feature of the south end of the main street, although little remains of the rest of the Abbey buildings. The remaining cloisters, part of the west range, were leased to Battle Abbey School shortly after World War I, and the school remains in occupancy to this day.
The abbey at Battle has been known for centuries as Battle Abbey. It and the abbey church were initially dedicated to Saint Martin, sometimes known as “the Apostle of the Gauls”, and named in his honour.
Below is The Monument which was was erected in 1840 in memory of Sir Harry Burrard Neale the MP for Lymington in 1832.

Just a verse of my poem which has been posted on my other site……..
Writing Hell -
King of the Wood
Written by Gerry A/C
King of the Wood.
1. Here, where once the great oak tree stood,
The Lord, the Prince, no, the King of the Wood.
Many a traveler would stop to take a rest,
Look into his branches and see nature at it’s best.
More verses on my other site please click my link and enjoy…..

Gerry A/C A slightly boring post this time around, graphically that is.
Music and Woodwork!
Below are three certificates from my mother. The two music ones were part of her violin and musical achievements. Those of you who read my earlier posts might recall my story of the time my mother passed her violin over to me. A treasure I still have, and will always have.
The woodwork certificate was attained and was to become part of her contribution to the war effort. She went on to help build gun boats that patrolled the English waters and protected the mainland.
This certificate was a duet, she did tell me a little story about her duet partner, but for the life of me I cannot recall it.
Not that any one would want to but the above pictures are the property of the author, Gerry A/C and no unauthorised use is allowed without written permission by the said author. thank you.
