Great Centenary Charity Auction Approaches

INTRODUCTION

As well as my title piece, I have a few links to share. I also have some good pictures, so it will not all be text.

UPDATE ON THE GREAT CENTENARY CHARITY AUCTION

The Great Centenary Charity Auction takes place on June 28th, and after two hard days at the silo in Syderstone where stcok for this auction is currently being stored and an intense day of editing at my desk on Fakenham (today), virtually all the images are ready. Given the situation we were in not very long ago (the Irishman in the joke about directions would definitely have been saying that he wouldn’t start from there – and he would have been 100% justified!) this is little short of miraculous.

The VC in the pictures below has a particularly interesting history – it was stripped from the person to whom it had been awarded when he was convicted of several serious criminal offences…

As a very keen bridge player, this twin pack of cards naturally appealed…

My last set of pictures is of lot 537…

LINKS

Just a few links for you this time. Firstly, from the Visit Norfolk website, a very interesting piece about our region’s 1,000,000 year history of human habitation.

Cosmos Up, regulars in this links section have two interesting offerings today:

1) Blue patches on Mars

2) An esimate of the total weight of our galaxy!

CLOSING STATEMENT

I hope that you have enjoyed today’s offering from aspiblog, and that you will be encouraged to share it with others.
