Today, Saturday 4th Feb is World Wetlands Day, so I'm off to a Celebrate Our Estuary event this afternoon. The Estuary we're celebrating is where both of Christchurch's rivers mingle to flow into the sea.

It's a long weekend in Aotearoa/New Zealand as on Monday we mark the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi/Tiriti o Waitangi in 1840, New Zealand's founding document. This was meant to mark a partnership between Maori and the Crown, however the Maori and English versions differ, and Maori understanding of what they were signing was not what the Crown representatives thought they were signing. This has been a source of disagreement and tension.

The Wikipedia version of the Treaty is factually flawed as it only records some North Island Chiefs signing whereas some South Island Chiefs signed too.

Cheers, Loth! [Smile]

It's still 9th February here, and eight years ago today my b-i-l lost his battle with cancer, the day after his 56th birthday.

Rest in peace, R. [Tear]

Today is Pooyem Day here [otherwise known in Tamil as Thaipusam] when the whole village comes alive with music and dancing in honour of Lord Murugan, one of the sons of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati - celebrations started last night and will go on after midnight tonight.

Food is always involved.
Family lunch (10th wedding anniversary), followed by multiple infusions of chili bajis at the temple followed by ice cream. And that was just the first visit!

Still missed, he was a good guy.

Copied over from another thread for NEQ

Yesterday was our 28th wedding anniversary, and today was the 28th anniversary of my becoming a kirkit bride.

I wonder if any bride now uses the term "kirkit bride"? A bride is kirkit the first time she attends church with her new husband, and they sit together as a new unit, rather than with their respective parents. Given that we met at University and our families lived elsewhere in two different cities, we had never attended church sitting apart prior to our wedding. Even so, I liked the idea that I had been kirkit.

Also, as I didn't wear my glasses at my wedding and everything was a bit blurry, it wasn't till we went to church the following day that I saw my wedding flowers!

Congratulations NEQ and North East Man! [Yipee]

I'd never come across the expression "kirkit bride" before; the day after D. and I got married* we turned up at church five minutes late for choir practice, and got a rousing cheer from the basses ... [Snigger]

* In those days, most people in Orkney got married on Friday evenings so that they could leave on the boat or plane next day, but we decided to break with tradition and got married on a Saturday afternoon.

I like the kirkit bride too. I hadn't heard it before - didn't happen a lot in our family. I hope there's a kirkit groom too. I checked Auntie Google for symbols, but they skip 28, though you can look forward to pearls in two years time. (Sapphire for our next one, on Christmas Day.)

Tomorrow is the 6th anniversary of the earthquake in which 185 people lost their lives and the city of Christchurch was badly damaged with 85% of the buildings in the CBD either being demolished or needing demolition.

I'm mourning both the people and the city.

That's what comes of having 8-month-old twins. [Eek!] Happy birthday, Himself. [Smile]

When I saw the date I realised that I started school 50 years ago today*.

I'm getting awfully elderly.

* I know it seems an odd time of year to start; the policy in Orkney at the time was to start the oldest class in the year-group after the Easter holidays. We went for mornings only until the summer, and then were joined by the other three classes, who, being younger than us, were immeasurably inferior. [Big Grin]

A sort of strange day here today - it is the most solemn day in the Christian Year [Western Calendar] and simultaneously one of the biggest feasts and most joyful days in the Kerala Hindu year so

A Blessed Good Friday to all; and

Vishu Asamsakal Happy Vishu.

It is also Dr Ambedkar's [father of the Indian constitution] birthday but I don't think that is hugely celebrated, great man though he undoubtedly was.

Today is the tenth anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings. It was a terrible tragedy, but it also created a stronger sense of community among students, faculty, administration, and the townspeople.

I have never had any formal connection with Virginia Tech (formerly known as VPI), but many members of my family have.

There has always been a strong supportive tie between the town and the university; indeed the university charter states that they are not only to educate students, but also help the surrounding community. There has also been a willingness on the part of the faculty and administration to respond to student concerns. Without this background, the tragedy would have been a much greater disaster.

I never appreciated slogans before this, but the poet Nikki Giovanni, who was on the faculty, wrote a poem with the lines, "We will prevail". Those words appeared on signs all over town. It was very encouraging.

There is a memorial to those who died that day. It was originally designed by grieving students on the day of the shootings. They took stones from a nearby building site and labelled each with the name of a victim. Then people began to bring items appropriate to each individual--sports equipment, etc.

The university at first intended to have people from the architecture school design a memorial, but they decided to go with the students' design. This is what I mean when I say that the administration pays attention to the students. The original stones were replaced with stones cut for the purpose, with a name on each. I took an out-of-town friend there one Sunday morning. As we looked at the stones, a car drew up, and a man and woman got out, carrying a bunch of flowers. They laid the flowers beside one of the stones, stood there for a bit, and then left. We went over and read the card on the flowers. It said," To so-and-so on her twenty-third birthday." I guess they do this every year for every person who died.

There have been articles in the paper all week about the shootings. Today they told about one of the survivors, who was shot in the arm. He recovered completely and went on to become a veterinarian, which was his life's ambition. He apparently has a special talent for handling animals that have been abused.

I could write a lot more, but I think this is enough to give you an idea of what things are like here.

The people of Orkney (and in particular of St. Magnus Cathedral) today celebrated the 900th anniversary of the martyrdom of St. Magnus, Orkney's patron saint.

Very appropriate that it should fall on Easter Day.

Many happy returns, Smudgelet! [Smile]

Also, should have said yesterday, happy Norway Day to any of our Shippies in that fair and beautiful country.
quote:
Ja, vi elsker dette landet, som det stiger frem,
furet, værbitt over vannet, med de tusen hjem

The quote is from the beginning of the Norwegian national anthem, and translates somewhat thus-ish:

Yes, we love this country as it rises forth,
rugged, weathered, over the water, with the thousands of homes
