No longer to be berthed for "several" days near to the Cutty Sark" , the latest very small print
The ‘City of Adelaide’ will be moored next to the ‘Cutty Sark’ for the weekend 18th - 20th October before its last voyage from London to Port Adelaide takes place next year. The voyage atop a heavy - lift ship will represent the last ever voyage of a 19 th century clipper
So - you see , the CSCOAL much acclaimed , business acumen was just a front , total BS , I know in Oz they don't like POM bull-$hitters and they soon tell them straight , the same applies with me. CSCOAL were morally bankrupt with their lies all the way , now they are bankrupt and had to be rescued
Locals will, hopefully, recall Viking longships that once used to be found in Largs, but eventually were lost.
I think I have a pic of one fronting the Viking picture house on the road into the town, but its lost in a book somewhere, and I don't recall coming across any online.
Maybe councillors there should be looking to the future and garnering support for a local project, a work experience scheme for local youths to re-establish old skills, and convert an old hull (recently offered for free on eBay, buyers collects) into a giant Viking longship and tourist attraction on the sea front of Largs, with amusements and restaurant inside.
There is an amusing aspect to this, since I have info 'pushed' to me rather than go 'pull' it myself - I probably know more about what is happening in Adelaide currently than Glasgow (where I 'pull' news and info, and spend a lot of time doing so), and know about local projects, buses, renewables (and their shiny new electric buses), crime, developments, entertainment, bars, traffic etc etc.
Interesting stories a few weeks ago, which would have raised eyebrows high in Glasgow, with our knife laws/campaigns. Trainee nurses announced they were carrying knives and scissors whenever they crossed a local park to reach their accommodation, stating they were living in fear after nurses had been attacked in the park.
btw , the "Re-naming" ceremony , out of 350 qty. in total seats / catering available , only 221 were registered by close at midnight gone, (I ponder on how many of the 221 will in fact turn up with their ID for the gate-men) .. If CSCOAL is so well supported - at only £25 a seat , why did all their Oz supporters not clean up the remainder on-line , after all just another way of throwing good money after bad with a final contribution
The nice lady tells us the Carrick "even sank to the bottom of the ocean"
Well, at least that makes it easier for me to have trip to the seaside, since I can walk to the nearest section of the River Clyde in about 25 minutes, and it's in relative wilderness, and not even spoiled by the damned cycle track along which the "silent death" speeds, as my section loops away from the Clyde Walkway, or cycle route 75 which hijacked it.
I mentioned my feed system had keeled over due to software revisions, meaning I have to go check it manually, instead of getting an alert.
How can I put it?...
Jings! Crivens! Help ma boab! - as I think one Scottish cartoon character started saying many years ago
Normally, I'd post the few links to stories as they appeared, just to help readers, but for the moment, I will just give this up until something other than the renaming become the stimulus.
You might recall I noted that the story had died in the media, and that this was simply because there was no celebrity associated with it once the news of the move from Irvine had been reported.
All I can say is that I am now overwhelmed when I check the feeds now that the Duke of Edinburgh AKA Prince Philip has become involved.
After one story features the event, numerous others within franchises and similar groups get the same text boilerplates and circulated, and the same story cascades through every member of the group.
For this reason, I won't bother repeating them. (There are dozens of articles, but only a handful of actual accounts - if you see what I mean, I hope )
This is a bit of a pity, because I have actually found some 'new' news in some of the earlier stories which were mentioned above.
Rather than create a new story, the media sources have merely rewritten the original article (which informed readers of the upcoming renaming ceremony) to cover the ceremony itself, but have left the title and url the same, so there's no way that it will ever appear in feeds looking for new stories - or for anyone looking for a new story or update from that source.
This 'loss' of the newer info is one of the reason I am highly critical of media sources that cannot be bothered to create a new story for a new event, and lose it by merely editing an older one.
Yes , I have noticed this about rehashing old articles. If it is something like this that you have been following & aware of most of the content - then it is apparent that much technical detail is after a period incorrect (assuming it was true fact in the first place). . Then you read something that you have not been following close & forget the trueism - don't believe everything you read in a newspaper
