QUEENSBATON.JPG
25 viewsThe Queen's Baton Relay, a much loved tradition of the Commonwealth Games, symbolises the coming together of all Commonwealth nations and territories in preparation for the four-yearly festival of sport and culture.
On 9th October 2013, the Glasgow 2014 Queen's Baton Relay was launched at Buckingham Palace by Her Majesty the Queen who placed her message to the Commonwealth, inscribed on a parchment handmade in Glasgow from linen and plant fibre, inside the baton. Over the next 288 days, the baton was set to visit 70 nations and territories, covering 190,000 kilometres and involving a third of the world's population.
Unlike the Olympic torch, there is only one Queen's baton. This year's embodies Scotland's culture, history and innovation in its design and construction. The titanium lattice framework takes its inspiration from Glasgow's rich industrial heritage and the elm wood handle was sourced from the grounds of Garrison House on Cumbrae. Each Commonwealth nation and territory has been given a granite gemstone housed at the top of the baton, the granite coming from Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde.
Thousands of special memories have already been created on the journey across continents, terrains and time zones. From Sydney Harbour Bridge to the forests of Rwanda, from Pacific Islands to the Rocky Mountains of Canada, the baton has showcased each nation and territory in the Commonwealth.
The baton entered the final straight of its journey on 14th June when it arrived in Scotland and, over the next 40 days, 4,000 proud batonbearers will carry it the length and breadth of the country, taking it to 400 villages, towns and cities, the baton travelling 4,000 metres in the process. Finally, on 23rd July, thousands of people, including my husband and me, will welcome the baton to the XX Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony in Glasgow, where Her Majesty The Queen will read aloud her message to the Commonwealth.
As you can see, even giant pandas want to be part of this very special experience and my only concern is that the proud panda selected to carry the baton might decide to eat it instead of passing it on to the next batonbearer!

24 viewsMale pandas, whether living in the wild or in captivity, aren't involved in the care of their cubs nor do they even get to meet them. The only exception is the male in this happy family group who appears to realise the significance of what's being recorded for posterity in this portrait specially commissioned for Father's Day!

On Mother's Day with love16 viewsThis year, Mei Xiang, the Smithsonian National Zoo's female panda, will have a double cause for celebration on Mother's Day as Bao Bao, aged 2, will have Bei Bei, her six months old baby brother to help her spoil their Mom. I was lucky enough to be in Washington a few weeks ago and was enchanted by the antics of all four pandas. Anyone who thinks panda are boring should take a trip to DC! Mar 01, 2016

Don't Worry About a Thing14 viewsTragically, my darling brother, Iain D.A. Young BSc FFA, who designed this website for me, died on 1st November 2015. Iain lived in Jamaica for several years, as did I, which is why I thought the words of 'Three Little Birds', one of Bob Marley's best loved songs were an appropriate title for this picture where he's looking so happy and healthy. Don't worry about a thing, Iain, 'cause every little thing's gonna be all right. Nov 15, 2015
