Theme Reveal … Aspects of British County Rare Breeds …
At long last I can release my posts drafted for last year's A - Z into the ether ... beyond the boundaries of my scheduled posts ... relief - they're all written (almost!) ... no change to my approach.
|None of these will you find in this year's|
A-Z of British County Rare Breeds!
(A poster I had block boarded)
I do somehow need to master the new mechanics of the A - Z … I can’t quite see how I find new people if there’s no list – but I’m sure there’s a way.
Also how do we find new ‘contenders’ in the next ten days … again I’m sure there’s a way …..
I’m only blogging – it is a blogging challenge: social media and I don’t mix – until (of course) I decide it and I must, then mix and match it will be!
|Nor will you find any of these in the A-Z ...|
though some genes might be there!
So on to rare breeds and the posts will definitely match the theme!
I found this rhyme – where … who knows – a year is a long time … actually not so long considering my tender age, but for me the threads of memory search have gone!
|The Giant Canada Goose|
This English protest rhyme was probably voicing concerns about the Enclosures, the loss of common land to common folk and the gains made by the landed gentry.
However it still has resonance today …
The Goose and the Common
(Authors unknown … a 17thC protest against English enclosures)
They hang the man and flog the woman,
who steals the goose from off the common,
yet let the greater villain loose,
that steals the common from the goose.
For all the verses see here … The Goose from Union Songs The research archive was set up by Mark Gregory – an Australian … not sure if they are rare breeds yet?!?!
|By the time we get to April 30th - we|
might need some of this ... ?!
If you wish to see a horse’s backside, or a very wide cow … the please visit last year’s theme reveal …
Enjoy the Challenge and the themes - there seem to be some interesting ones - creative bunch we find we are ...
