Back to Denis for S-A-A – certainly the best I've heard for a long, well a This was a rare chance to visit the Hall as it's not open to the public and only a. Human and beast, both, adult and child, both, we long for safety, for shelter, for food, for so I watched the replay of President Kennedy dying over and over on our piece of writing I've read in the last two years since the election, and UBCA. I sat down at a sidewalk cafe today, popped open this laptop – ready to send.
How are we going to respond? This beast hates us. Ours is a world yearning toward love, I swear it, I swear it. I watch it each day in the coo of the babies I see weekly. I see it when a hummingbird mother brings her two young to sit with her on my round feeder, teaching them about bird and human interaction. I see it when my parrot tucks himself on the side of my glasses and begins to preen and hum, happy in my warmth.
I see it when people kneel down and render apologies. I hear it all the time, for my family, both its Caucasian members and its JC members, is a family engaged in social justice. Will you forgive me? Our striving to do better for each other is utterly human. Human and beast, both, adult and child, both, we long for safety, for shelter, for food, for acceptance, for this restoring power of generosity, compassion, empathy, humility, respect and love.
It is, when transgender rights are protected in Canada. The opposition to social justice is fierce now. We must always take sides.
Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. It was a new thing in TV news in the 60s that we could watch assassinations almost live, so I watched the replay of President Kennedy dying over and over on our scratchy black and white console, and a few years later, I watched Dr King crumple.
My feminism was never a solid block, but a curious, questing, alive thing. My feminism was always encompassing, and it stretches to encompass even now our foibles, our mistakes, our minor offenses, our sloganeering and academic thought. It fights against violence against womxn and children; it fights racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism.
Why not let me. On arrival at St James palace they joined other cadets, armed forces personnel and scouts that were seated ready to be awarded their Gold Duke of Edinburgh award. It was an exciting time for the cadets as the commandant of the Air Cadets Organisation, Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, presented the certificates personally.
Prince Philip entered and there were smiles all around as they were going to be meeting him. Cadet Flight Sergeant Jones was especially excited as Prince Philip spoke to her, asking where she was from. After the awards ceremony the proud parents and cadets headed over to the Royal Air Force Club, this is where the top ranking RAF Officers stay and eat.
It was such a great opportunity for them. They had a spot of lunch and a look around the grand building then it was time to rush back to the train station and depart from London. They are now helping the other cadets from the Squadron gain their awards and are a credit to the Squadron. Free gifts maximum one per pet while stocks last.

In the past, the scheme has helped to refurbish a Girl Guide hut, repair church fencing, and support a community zoo. Managing Director Sue Coulson said: Only for the day, because they replaced them with finer clothes to enjoy another superb day trip out. On a fine sunny day the rambling club was taken by coach to Keighley in West Yorkshire to travel back in time on the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway in the heart of Bronte country.
With the smoke and the blowing of steam from the engine, it brought many memories flooding back to everyone from whistles, shouts of all aboard even to the warmth of the open coal fires in the waiting rooms. It had all the cameras working overtime. Everyone had a rare chance to travel in historic wooden bodied carriages hauled by a vintage steam locomotive over one hundred years old.
With stomachs rather full the day was finished off with a pleasant walk around Bronte sisters Haworth and a Christmas market. The Long Eaton rambling club enjoy many such days out, we also arrange walking holidays and weekends away.
We have a full programme of walks, every Sunday and some Thursdays. All weekend walks meet at the Long Eaton Town Hall car park; there a car share operates so to keep travelling costs down to a minimum. We welcome new members to enjoy walking with us in our beautiful countryside, which is only on our doorstep.
Come and join us on one of our forthcoming walks. If you would like to see how it is done then the people at the Canaan Trust will be delighted to show you how. The Canaan Trust has been providing accommodation and support for homeless males across the area since This Christmas the Canaan Trust will be open on Christmas Day as it is every year - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, days a year.
It is a sad fact that not everyone will have a home or a bed this Christmas. As you sit down to enjoy Christmas dinner with your loved ones having opened your presents maybe you might spare a thought for those for whom Christmas will be just one more day — one more day when there is no one to care, one more day of little or no hope.
That is where the Canaan Trust tries to step in. The Trust seeks to provide support and through that support provide hope that tomorrow will be not only be a new day but will be a day along the road to rebuilding a life that has been shattered by the stark reality of becoming homeless. No-one chooses to be homeless. It can happen to anyone.
Loose your job, family breakdown, physical or mental health problems and suddenly you can find yourself without somewhere to live or to sleep. Once homeless the downward spiral towards a life without hope is rapid and harsh. The Canaan Trust does not just provide accommodation but provides a full range of support which helps each client to address the often complex issues which now trap them in their homelessness.
But in the first instance it depends on the generosity and thoughtfulness of so many in the community. The Trust asks you to care, to consider helping. The process is simple.
