Wednesday, 3rd July (thru Aug) in Solar System
Dog-Days... Canis Major
Southern Celestial Hemisphere
The dog-days start on this day of July 3rd and last until 11 August. The Romans reckoned these were the hottest days of the year, and they probably were in Rome, but the British climate is less consistent.
According to the Romans, the dog-days were not just hot by chance. The brightest of the stars in Canis Major (the big dog) is Sirius. The Romans thought that, because Sirius is brightest star in the night sky, the earth received heat from it.
The period between July 3 and August 11 in the northern hemisphere, the dog-star Sirius rises with the sun, thus adding to the heat it gave out - to such extent that dogs are inclined to go mad. ( In the southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March.) http://www.projectbritain.com/calendar/july/dogdays.html

Shark Trust, 4 Creykes Court, 5 Craigie Drive, The Millfields, Plymouth, Devon, PL1 3JB.
Established in 1997, the Shark Trust started on the corner of a desk in Newbury. By 2000, the Trust had a small team and had set up shop in a room that was originally designed as an ice cream parlour outside the newly-built National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK.
Twenty years on we have grown a little in size and a lot in terms of our reach and influence. Still based in Plymouth (Britain’s Ocean City), a city with a rich heritage in fisheries and marine science, we now work at an international level to push for the changes needed to safeguard the future of all sharks, skates and rays (and not forgetting the chimaeras).
Initially set up to be a voice for UK sharks, skates and rays, the Trust team from the outset worked alongside the UK Government and ever-growing network of partners to protect and manage sharks in British waters. The UK is now internationally recognised as a champion for shark conservation and we strive to use our influence to effect change further afield. Shark Trust Membership helps the Trust by giving us a louder voice to call for positive change and giving us an income to support our programmes.
Become involved. So rewarding to do and help the magnificent sharks at same time.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary - Very Urgent Land Appeal
Hillside Animal Sanctuary Hall Lane Frettenham Norwich NR12 7LT UK Telephone: 01603 736200
A small area of land has been offered to us to purchase. This is the four acre meadow, pictured above, which is situated at the back of the Sanctuary and lies between a 30 acre field where around fifty of our special care horses and ponies graze during the summer and 15 acres of Sanctuary land where their shelters are situated. For several years now, the landowner has allowed our horses to roam freely across the bottom part of the four acres, providing a vital link for them to gain access from one field to the other to reach their shelters. It would be of great benefit for the horses to keep this thoroughfare in addition to the extra grazing the whole of the four acres would provide.
Hillside Animal Sanctuary is home to 2000 Rescued Horses, 480 Rescued Cows, 2000, Ponies and Donkeys, 600 Sheep and Goats, 300 Pigs and lots of other rescued animals and birds.
The landowner has told us that they must now sell but are giving us first refusal as they know how important it is to us. They are asking for a reasonable price of £45,000 as small areas of land in this area can often go for much more. This appeal is most urgent because we are concerned that if the land is sold and we are unable to raise the funds to purchase it, the valuable benefits it brings for managing our rescued horses, will be lost.

This time they are collaborating with BrewDog Soho to host a ‘pawty’ for four-legged pals of all breeds who want to spread the message of acceptance, love and hope for the LGBT+ community at Pride in London.

James Duncan: Laird of Benmore, 1870-1889 will tell the story of an extraordinary individual and how he made his fortune, enabling him to buy Benmore estate, which became the focus of a range of pioneering and public-minded agricultural, arboricultural and artistic projects. These included planting 6 million trees and gathering examples of plants, ferns and paintings from around the world to fill gardens, fernery and an immense picture gallery. Benmore attracted notable figures from the fields of art, science, politics and religion, as well as thousands of visitors who flocked through the Golden Gates to discover Benmore’s treasures. It is from a close confidant of Duncan’s that we learn why Duncan’s great vision of leaving Benmore to the nation was never realised in his lifetime.

Read about Kinross
The town sits beside Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish Lowlands. Declared a nature reserve in 1964, the loch attracts around 20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. Sitting peacefully on an islet within the loch itself is the enchanting Lochleven Castle. Between April and September you can take the small ferry to the castle which gained infamy when it acted as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567. Her dramatic escape by boat is one of Scotland's most romantic tales.

Beach Cleans All Year 2019!
The Marine Conservation Society... The Great British Beach Watch
1. Essex 2. Falkirk 3. Swansea 4. Fife 5. East riding of Yorkshire
(Above is just a few of the scores of beaches. Sign up for yours pls. )
(MCS) is the voice for everyone who loves the sea. We work to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened sea life before it is lost forever. See our upcoming September Beach Clean & become involved. http://www.mcsuk.org/beachwatch/
Beachwatch is our national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme - helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline. Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. Litter on our beaches is hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own & be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!
Levels of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sea life, including seabirds, whales and dolphins. 88% of Europe’s fish stocks are overfished or depleted. MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives. Our work ensures that the sea’s rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner. To become involved, be an event planner and to help, visit http://www.mcsuk.org/

'Trashed' Film w/ Jeremy Irons
This very important film looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land, and sea by waste. It reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians, and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution.
Usually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. UK Screening Enquiries----Pls contact
