2012 (Part 1)

Kia Ora Fellow Gallopers,

Another year’s come and gone – a year that was packed with events ranging from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to the London Olympics to the US Presidential election. The aftershocks of the economic crisis continued to rock the world economies and the world was to have ended this year.

While being a silent spectator to the atrocities that one fellow human inflicts on another, this beautiful planet that we call Home sent out very clear signals to us, by way of storms and super storms,  that we will have to bear the consequences of our bad and reckless stewardship of her.

As the curtains come down on 2012, I thought I’d showcase some of our most highly rated* images from the past 12 months. Hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed making them:

The Great Daffodil Appeal 2012

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

Today, the 1st of March, 2012, marks the start of Marie Curie Cancer Care’s month-long Great Daffodil Appeal in the UK.

Started in 1948, the same year the National Health Service (NHS) was launched, Marie Curie Cancer Care is best known for its network of 2000 nurses, who work in the homes of terminally ill patients across the UK, providing practical care and support.

To show our support of the great work done by the Marie Curie nurses and the charity as a whole and to coincide with the start of the Great Daffodil Appeal we, at Black Stallion Country, thought it only fit that we showcase Daffodils on our March Desktop Calendar.

Feel free to download the calendar by clicking on the image above and we really hope you’ll use it as your desktop calendar this month serving as a constant reminder of the invaluable service offered by the Marie Curie nurses.

Please do share this with family and friends and am sure that if you are willing to offer the charity any practical or monetary support, it would be gratefully received.

Till next time, take care and gallop free.
