1st drafted August 15th; pik: August 30; PS: Sept 1…
is anyone out there listening? cos I’ve got lots of GOOD news to share…. [says me, Baglady]
I was always told when I was training as a journalist, that GOOD news is not news, that the only good news is BAD news
and I have news! for you brothers, sisters
BAD news has had its day: we are over it. [I even know journalists who are, over it]
it’s time for us ALL/S to get together and save this world for and with our children. Anybody out there?
my message is floating towards you in a bottle, from the high seas of the world [or will be in a couple on months]
and if YOU see that bottle… and you don’t reach over, pick it out of the water, open it, read the message and SHOUT the GOOD news to the world, the danger is, the bottle could drift away into the wide ocean, and no one ever find it……
which would be the greatest tragedy, ever…
so keep watching this space
and get ready to leap
on board Baglady’s Ark…. calling at your nearest port and harbour in the next few weeks and months….
we’ve got good news emerging as we speak which will bring together the fine excellent people of Armagh, Ballymena, Coleraine, Derry, Edinburgh, Fermanagh, Lisboa, Vence, Vancouver, Ballyeamon, Ahoghill, Labibela and of course ‘Australia’… and so the list goes on… avec Michelin de Ballymena, JTI, Wrightbus, Harryville Primary School, the Guardian and the Times; oh yeah and the DoENI…. and Translink. And Nigel the Devine.
PS the latest to join us are Moyle, smallest [and most beautiful?] council in the country, folks.. + Larne, Ballymoney, Limavady... there’s a whole lot already on board and we’re working through the list, so we can tell you who they are and what they’re doing…. WATCH this space and look out for bottles.
and the MOST amazing news of all: I can’t believe it!!! Northern Ireland is getting cleaner. I’ve got pictures. Why? Because wise people are starting to bend the knee and pick up. And other wise people are stopping dropping; and feeling good about it, telling their friends. If you’ve got pictures: send them to us ASAP. And NIEA, and Tidy Northern Ireland. Pledge ASAP and pass on in any way you can…… best beams, Baglady
