I shear my own fleece and I wear it I have lawns, I have bow’rs I have fruits, I have flow’rs The lark is my morning alarmer So jolly boys now, here’s God speed the Plough, Long life and success to the Farmer. While the verse doesn’t mention any of the headaches farmers have always had to contend with – the vagaries of the season, physically demanding work, increasing costs and decreasing prices – it does sum up very nicely the feeling of independence and satisfying productivity that is at the heart of every farmer. Apparently dating from the late ‘s up until the middle of the last century, quite a lot of china and pottery was produced in England with variations of the Farmers Arms poem. The Adams family produced pottery in Staffordshire back to the 17th century although they are no longer in existence some of the designs are still manufactured by Wedgwood. Their work tended to have a brighter red, blue and yellow than the pottery produced by Adams, however they use the same black transfer technique. We plough the fertile meadow And sow the furrow’d land But yet the waving harvest Depends on God’s own hand ‘Tis his mercy gives us The sunshine and the rain That paints in verdant beauty The mountain and the plain. There are also ironstone mugs produced by Burleigh Pottery, Staffordshire, producing since and best known for producing blue and white china, eg with the well known ‘calico chintz’ pattern titled ‘God Speed the Plough’ and ‘Industry Produceth Wealth’ with the same ‘Farmers Arms’ poem. Leeds pottery apparently also produced ‘Farmers Arms’ crockery.
The following decade was one of consolidation, of setting up a first class research team and of tidying up loose ends. In Rutherford once more travelled out to Australia and New Zealand to give public lectures and to visit ailing parents. He was then an imposing figure: The six-week tour of New Zealand , his fourth and last visit to his homeland, was that of an international celebrity. Wherever he went he received civic receptions and halls were packed to overflowing to hear him give illustrated talks on the structure of the atom.
Rutherford declared that he had always been very proud of being a New Zealander.
Your Weather on metservice. How does it work? The WOW System was developed by the Met Office, with support from the Royal Meteorological Society and the Department for Education in the UK, to provide an online hub for UK weather observations which helps educate children about weather and encourages further growth in the UK’s amateur weather observing community. Despite its UK focus, the WOW System now has global coverage and has attracted visits from weather enthusiasts in more than countries.
This approach enables us to add other useful information, such as weather cams and traffic cams, in the same single view. We intend to grow the types of weather-related information that you can access from Your Weather pages, so let us know what you would like to see!

General The Guidance Department ‘Hundreds’ Speed Dating Event’, just 24 hours prior to us making our A Level choices, was a great chance to speak to a variety of people about their careers. With the exception of one man who worked in cyber security all the visitors were Old Marlburians, and were in jobs as diverse as theatre production, law, product design and education. Our five-minute talk with each candidate consisted of an introduction by the Old Marlburian, a short synopsis of their career path to date, and a chance to ask any relevant questions.
Speed dating isn’t something we’re familiar with, being in our GCSE year, so it took a bit of getting used to, but by the end we were more comfortable with the format. It was very interesting to hear from people who have taken A levels, gone to University, taken gap years and found out what they want to do with their lives. The message conveyed from the majority was to pick a career that you really enjoy. For example, one woman had thought she was destined to be a violinist.
However, after taking a course at the London Academy of Music, she realized she wasn’t really enjoying performing and decided teaching was what she really enjoyed. We are very grateful to the Guidance Department for organizing this opportunity to consolidate our A level choices, and get guidelines on life post-Marlborough. Hugo Bailey SU

Recent radiocarbon dating has found it to date from about BC. Legend has it that the Mound is the burial site of Merlin  and that the name of the town comes from Merlin’s Barrow. More plausibly, the town’s name possibly derives from the medieval term for chalky ground “marl”—thus, “town on chalk”. The town’s motto is Ubi nunc sapientis ossa Merlini “Where now are the bones of wise Merlin”.
Further evidence of human occupation comes from the discovery in St Margaret’s Mead of the Marlborough Bucket, an Iron Age burial bucket made of fir wood with three iron hoops, a top bar and two handles; it also sports bronze bands decorated with human heads and mythical animals, and is now on display at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes.

The Bass Rock is home to over , gannets at the peak of the breeding season as well as a whole host of other seabirds and marine wildlife. The Bass Rock is the closest sea bird sanctuary to the mainland and was the first to be studied by ornithologists during the 19th century, when they gave the Gannet the scientific name Sula Bassana, Morusbassanus incorporating the name of this rocky stack.
This is the largest ‘single rock’ colony of northern gannets in the world the largest colony at St Kilda is scattered over three sea stacks. The Bass Rock has been described by Sir David Attenborough as ‘one of the 12 wildlife wonders of the world’ and Chris Packham has described ‘this gannet-capped island’ as the most exciting birding spectacle in the UK.
North of the Bass is rated as the third best cliff dive in Britain.

Background[ edit ] By , the War of the Spanish Succession was in its fourth year. The previous year had been one of success for France and her allies, most particularly on the Danube , where Marshal Villars and the Elector of Bavaria had created a direct threat to Vienna, the Habsburg capital. Nevertheless, by , the threat was still real: The Dutch, however, who clung to their troops for their country’s protection, were against any adventurous military operation as far south as the Danube and would never willingly permit any major weakening of the forces in the Spanish Netherlands.
