Battling Ants « lancalass

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 Granddaughter Julie.

All of you Rest In Peace!


Battling Ants

Warring Matabele ant soldiers ‘retrive injured from battlefield’.

Teams of medics come behind their comrades and evacuate the wounded to the nest where they undergo treatment, say scientists.

*I can well believe it. My late sister and I in summer would be sat on the step smoking a ciggy when Ants would come out > We used to kill them if they came near us. We could not believe our eyes when another Ant came and carried its dead home to the nest.

*They were a right pest here last summer, I hope its better this summer.

An ant species that goes into battle with termites in Africa tends to its wounded, according to researchers.

A team of Matabele ant medics were observed rescuing injured comrades from battlefield and carrying them to safety.

Other critically injured ants refused to allow themselves to be rescued in an apparent act of selfless heroism.

Once the injured ants had been returned to the nest, the treatment they were given depended on the severity of their wounds.

Their behaviour results in the rate of death of injured ants from the warfare being cut from 80% to 10%.
