huge undersea world swallowed by the sea in 6500BC
- Divers have found traces of ancient land swallowed by waves 8500 years ago
- Doggerland once stretched from Scotland to Denmark
- Rivers seen underwater by seismic scans
- Britain was not an island – and area under North Sea was roamed by mammoths and other giant animals
- Described as the ‘real heartland’ of Europe
- Had population of tens of thousands – but devastated by sea level rises
Britain’s Atlantis’ – a hidden underwater world swallowed by the North Sea – has been discovered by divers working with science teams from the University of St Andrews.
Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC.
Divers from oil companies have found remains of a ‘drowned world’ with a population of tens of thousands – which might once have been the ‘real heartland’ of Europe.
A team of climatologists, archaeologists and geophysicists has now mapped the area using new data from oil companies – and revealed the full extent of a ‘lost land’ once roamed by mammoths.

Who needs streetlights when you’ve got glow-in-the-dark streets?
Brilliant, right? It’s kind of mind-boggling that nobody thought of doing this before, especially since those glowing plastic toys have been around for decades.
The new coating, coincidentally called “StarPath,” is a water-resistant, spray-on treatment that absorbs UV light during the day, and emits a blue glow during the night. This is possible thanks to the inclusion of a phosphorescent compound, but it’s apparently a bit more sophisticated than the stuff that’s used in toys.
I’m not sharing this because I think this letter is fantastic (even though it is). This letter really illustrates that prejudice isn’t always something that is learned from your parents.
I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. You’re correct that we have a “shame in the family,” but mistaken about what it is.
Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real “abomination” here. A parent disowning her child is what “goes against nature.”
The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that “you didn’t raise your son to be gay.” Of course you didn’t. He was born this way and didn’t choose it any more than he being left-handed. You however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward. So, while we are in the business of disowning our children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gays put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for heart-less B-word of a daughter.
If you find your heart, give us a call.
Why did I start this petition? Because I received the following email from Avaaz.org:
> Avaaz faces one of our biggest threats ever, and surprisingly, it’s coming
> from Gmail!
> *Gmail has made a change to its system which experts say could
> de-prioritize Avaaz emails, hiding them* from members like you and
> millions of others who want to take action to build a brighter world. But
> email experts say that if enough Avaaz members take 5 seconds to respond to
> this email — we can keep campaigning together.
> Here’s all you have to do: *REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE by clicking “Reply”
> right now and pressing “Send”.* If you’re lost for words — you can say:
> “Hi Avaaz.” Once you’ve sent the message you’re all done.
> Replying now is the simplest way to send a signal to Gmail that you want
> to receive Avaaz emails. And if we all do, it could show Gmail that Avaaz
> is valuable, and help ensure that thousands of members who might miss this
> email to still receive Avaaz alerts, and have a chance to continue to take
> action with us.
> It’s simple — if we can’t connect, our power to join across borders,
> races, and religions is broken. Let’s stay connected!
> With excitement for the new campaigns we can win together,
> Alice, Oli, Matt, Ian, Antonia, Allison, Ben, Michelle and the whole Avaaz
I did as they asked and in reply got two emails from Gmail.com. The first to tell me that the message had been delayed and the second to inform me that the delivery had failed. In short, they are obstructing Avaaz.org in any way they can.
I went over to the Avaaz site and made the suggestion that they create their own email service on their own servers and provide all the Avaaz members with a free account. This would ensure that our petition are no longer thwarted by outsiders and furthermore that we could use an email provider that does not spy on us and gives us no publicity(if we so wish and I for one do).
I still did not get any reaction to this and therefore started a petition for the general public to implore Avaaz.org to make it so! Are you all with me? Sign the petition then.
DEA: stick this in your pipe and DON’T forget to smoke it! Peace, Bros.

A robodog is what we need. To suffer his affections but for a while, until the off-switch beckons.
By Akanksha from The Flaming Vegan.com:
The wonderful tales of Mother Nature are best told with the sounds of the ocean waves and the innocent sounds of birds. Little do we know that for every picture we steal from these beautiful places we leave plastic pieces of ourselves in these places; unknowingly these little pieces when accumulated give massive destruction of such beautiful places we haven’t yet discovered.
After I watched this video shared by a friend on Facebook, I was stunned. I was in shock and out of words for the minutes that followed. How can we be so oblivious? Who gave us the right to kill other innocent creatures? Shown in this film is the plight of the Laysan albatross thriving in the majestic Midway Island in the North Pacific and how little pieces like plastic caps and other non-biodegradable materials slowly kills these noble congregation of Laysan albatross.

Hat tip to Give A Shit About Nature.
Always glad to to our bit when it comes to preserve nature!
I have a ceramicist friend on Facebook, called Didier Gesqueire, who has started an initiative to help children with cancer. Any artist wishing to contribute can send one or more works of art to this man, after which the works are auctioned off and the whole proceeds go to the Belgian Children’s Cancer Fund(Kinderkankerfonds). He has received artworks already from artists all over Europe.
Who would not like to help these children, right!? I have not made any art in the last couple of years and I therefore do my bit by making this publicity for their cause. If you are interested in helping, please go to Kunst helpt kinderen(Art helps children).
Here is the latest artwork that was sent in by Cordula Kerlikowski:
Common sense for sale.
Two ounces for a dollar!
Would make for a handsome souvenir!
No takers, I take it?
profit margin’s low!
One cent a click,
but common sense,
Insanity for sale.
How much for a pound?
Never mind, I’ll take the lot!
And then some days, time dragged its feet and the road itself grew weary of just going on and on in endless monotony, sick to its stomach of being trampled underfoot, longing to merely lie there in pristine silence. The flowers grew depressed under the midday heat and craved a nice shower. The fish were gasping for water in what was left of the brooks. The birds, their wings they flapped no more, too exhausted to utter a “tweet”.
The humans on the other hand were never too tired to snap, snap their cameras and post on Facebook, to immortalise the immutable spirit of the Way, eager already for old age to drop by and allow them to show these moments of bliss and pain to their progeny… every so often forgetting to live in the now.
That is until yet another sight of nature in all her majesty took their breath away anew. Mother Earth is somehow always ready to nurture our spirits and renew our energy, when we most need it. And need it we did! We all, without exception, got the “Iron Cross” in a superhuman fight against a mountain, a fearless enemy, who would not give in. After this unequal contest, I lay there exhausted and battle-worn, wondering how in the blazes I would ever be able to put one foot in front of the other again.
But of course I did, as did everyone and on we went tirelessly marching to our own inner rhythm. Onwards and upwards the children of the Pilgrem´s Way went to reach their salvation: Santiago! There to embrace the Golden Saint, who would deliver them from all their earthly worries. Amen!

Facebook =//= Communication!
CAN YOU RELATE TO THIS. If so, maybe you are over 50
Copy n paste from my friend Goemoe. Mweb
When I bought my Blackberry I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way.
This new year of 2012 has started off in an auspicious way! Let me count our blessings, if you will indulge me.
First of all, there are six of us here at the present, who complement each other wonderfully and harmoniously, which in and of itself is enough to keep on blogging like happy chappies and chapesses. You can read all our separate introductions in the header of this site.
Secondly, we have just recently received our second Liebster Blog Award, which you can read up on in an earlier article by clicking <here>
An unexpected third blessing is that we have reached the cape of one hundred followers on our site this very day, for which I thank our devoted readers profusely! (Followers: 100 ; to wit: 59 WordPress.com blog followers. 9 WordPress.com comment followers. 10 Twitter followers. 22 Facebook followers. = from the site statistics)
And last but certainly not least, on checking our comments this morning, I found that we had received this most treasured of Kreativ Blogger Awards, for which I humbly thank Mister Martin Aliker from “The Happiness nest” site. Click <here> to read the article!
I now have to share ten things about ourselves:
1. Ralphieportal could not have gotten this award without the contributions of the whole team(fact!).
2. I dearly miss my good friend and our first house-poet Lieven and I hope he comes out of hibernation soon!
3. SelargorNight has posted many poems that have enchanted us all and I hope he continues to do so often!
4. Sheila, our first house-witch, is an adornment to this site and I thank the stars every day that she is my friend(and adopted Gran!).
5. SaintMaj will hopefully regale us with more of his witticisms very soon!
6. Polly has joined her sister-witch and is adored and admired by all of us!
7. Ralphie is still a reprobate and will not be converting to any conformism any time soon, or ever for that matter!
8. Any lonely bloggers that would like to join our happy family can always give us a whistle and we will come a-runnin’! The more the merrier…
9. We’ve had visitors from 73 countries so far and I hope we can continue to spread zany, magical and happy thoughts to the rest of the world.
10. We sincerely hope that our policy of content over technological frills will continue to pay off.
There only remains for me to select my favourites for the Kreativ Blogger Awards and they are the following:
1. @GrumpyComments – always good for a laugh.
2. Lindy Lee – for original poems.
3. Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge – for quantum leaps of the imagination.
4. Linguistic Playfulness – for roaring prose.
5. TheTaoOfD – for thoughtful insights.
6. Waifette – for magnificent photography.
There are evidently many more that I adore, but the rules say that I can only choose six! Sorry about this.
