My Sister Pauline, called Home Too Soon.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane , I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

The greatest gift our parents gave us..was each other.

If I had a flower for every memory I have with you, I could forever walk in my garden.

Rest In Peace knowing how much I love you!!

All I ask is that you remember me at the alter of God.


A sundown splendid and serene,
A sister’s kiss upon your cheek,
A timeless moment when you are thanked,
You smile but cannot speak.
Such gifts are rich beyond compare,
And compensate for grief and care.
We lost a very special sister and best friend the day you were called home so suddenly and without warning..
Loved with a love beyond all telling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.
Goodnight and God Bless Pauline I love you and miss you so much…xxx

Re-united with her loving parents and brothers Peter and John, sister Patrica. Missed by her loving husband Peter also daughter Susan and Ebony her granddaughter,  son Anthony, and Grandsons.. Not forgetting  Brian and  Niece Julie.

All of you Rest In Peace!


Coronavirus In The Amazan!

Coronavirus: Fears for indigenous tribes after doctor in Amazon tests positive.

The above brought tears to my eyes this morning:
There are fears remote indigenous communities could be decimated by the coronavirus after a doctor working with an Amazon tribe was confirmed to have the disease.

The doctor had been working with the Tikunas, a tribe of more than 30,000 people who live in the upper Amazon near Brazil’s borders with Colombia and Peru.

Brazil’s health ministry said the doctor, who has not been named, had returned to the tribe on 18 March after a vacation.

He had no symptoms at that stage and had been wearing protective gear, including a face mask.

After developing a fever that day, he isolated himself and was confirmed as having COVID-19 a week later.

Earth’s Most Ancient Pit

Australia’s Yarrabubba crater is the oldest known hole on Earth, scientists concluded in a report published in the journal Nature Communications on Tuesday.

Most animals cannot eat milkweed, which contains a toxin that turns stomachs in small doses and can be lethal in larger ones. A few species, though, thrive on the plant. Young monarch butterflies, as caterpillars, only eat milkweed. This noxious diet makes their bodies Unpalatable to birds, frogs and other predators.

The fifth dynasty governed for less than two centuries, from 2,500 B.C. to about 2,350 B.C., according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
