Toby – Resident Sheepdog – ABBEY MILLS: MERTON PRIORY CHAPTER HOUSE – 900 YEAR OLD WOODEN ARCH! PART 4 (7.8.2022)

Anyone who interacted, stroked, played with or threw a stick for ‘Toby’ – the resident sheepdog – was presented with a beautiful postcard of this well-behaved and genteel Sheepdog! He appears to be the pet of resident archaeologist – Mr John Hawks – the Curator of Chapter House, as he was the person who presented the postcard and seemed to know ‘Toby’ the best! Mr John Hawks has been featured in a number of articles about this very important ‘dig’ which has received a boost recently with the Priory ‘arched’ wooden gate being added to the already amply exhibition! There is much to see – such as the UK’s oldest Parliament and Lord Nelson’s Chest!

Aravindan Balakrishnan (1940-2022): A Great Revolutionary Leader is Laid to Rest! (5.5.2022) 

A family-member gave an outstanding speech that excellently encapsulated an extraordinary life well lived – and his Revolutionary world outlook – which was forged against the backdrop of the Malayan peoples’ heroic struggle against British imperialism (and its “reign of terror”). Although factual from beginning to end – the emotional impact upon those present was tangible – enhanced by moving accounts of the practical love and service he demonstrated to all he encountered throughout his exemplary life!  Family members made special mention of their gratitude to Comrade Bala (sometimes called ‘Ara’) – particularly for the devoted care he showed toward his sister-in-law.

We Must Never Forget the People’s Republic of Odessa! (Existed April 20th-May 3rd, 2014)

The Ukrainian Neo-Nazis teach their children that ‘Russians’ (and everything ‘Russian’) are viewed as products of an inferior race and a dysfunctional culture! Neo-Nazi Ukrainians are taught to look toward Europe (particularly Germany) to re-affirm their cultural identity – when in fact they are more or less genetically identical to the Russians that Hitler hated!
