Stupid thing to share here but so many people from all over the World ask me about the “Lone Piper” If you have seen ‘Braveheart’ they mention it there. Here in Scotland the ‘Lone Piper’ will often play at funerals as the hearse is driving away, weddings, kinda most things. Well this was outside the ‘Balmoral Hotel’ in the City Centre where rooms are £700 a night at the top end ($1,500)  Outside at night a lone piper will play for the guest and anyone passing, like me tonight. I can sit and watch a lone piper any time of year, the noise I think maybe only Scottish people can feel. There was a saying once around the 1300’s, the time of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce when Scottish people were banned from playing the Bagpipes by Longshanks the King of England or Edward the 1st, yeah there is ‘History’ that wants Scotland to leave this British Union. Many say to me “Britain had an empire through death” HOLD ON!! England had an empire, Scotland was being robbed, raped and murdered by the English around the same time. So that is the story of the bagpipes “Outlawed Tunes on Outlawed pipes” was the saying, you seen braveheart, you are there.

Anyway, Dawn the girls and I had been shopping like ALL DAY, we popped in to visit my Mum and headed home about 18:30, I don’t usually go through town, I use the motorway/freeway that circles Edinburgh. I am glad I took this route tonight. You will hear my Parter Dawn telling me to hurry up as the traffic was moving, then as I drive around the corner (Map below :D) I almost hit a curb and burst a tyre 😀 Anyway, enjoy, it’s short but I love this

Where the piper was and where I drove (HOW SAD AM I) HAHA

SNP: voter registration raised – 800,000 could drop off – Not allowed to vote!!

This has been raised and timely as well. Many may be unable to vote in this years General Elections for reasons below. This is another attempt by the London ‘Elite’ to make sure Scotland is silenced again. We can’t let this happen. If you are unsure if you can or can’t vote – DO SOMETHING ‘NOW’ TO MAKE SURE YOU CAN VOTE! Don’t wait till the last week and you can’t vote. Act now!

SNP MSP Rob Gibson has written to the Electoral Commission to raise concerns over voter registration. Mr Gibson’s letter comes following news that hundreds of thousands of people in Scotland face being removed from the voters roll due to new regulations based on moving from household to individual voter registration.

Earlier this week it was reported in The Herald newspaper that as many as 800,000 people who signed up to vote in last year’s referendum may not be eligible to vote in the Scottish Parliamentary elections in 2016. Mr Gibson, SNP MSP for Caithness, Sutherland and Ross has now written to Andy O’Neill, head of the Electoral Commission Office in Scotland, seeking clarity on this and expressing concern at the manner in which people are being contacted.

Mr Gibson said:

“One of the great successes of last year’s referendum was the level of engagement and voter participation that swept across every community in the weeks and months before September 18. “Never before have so many people signed up to have their say in the democratic process in Scotland – it is vitally important that we aim to retain this level of voter participation. “The Electoral Commission’s transition from a household canvass of voters to individual registration in Glasgow alone has seen 100,000 fewer voters registered so far – and this could mount to 800,000 across Scotland if new means are not found to encourage voter registration in good time for the 2016 Scottish Parliamentary election.

“The letter I received from my local Electoral Registration Office did not make clear what elections this reregistration would impact on. It only informed me that I could not be re-registered because my date of birth and National Insurance Number were not sufficient identifiers. This letter was worded in an unnecessarily unhelpful way – I would urge a more open and engaging approach.

“I look forward to hearing back form the Electoral Commission; I hope they too share these concerns and can detail me with plans which will alleviate fears that the great expansion of our democracy in Scotland faces being reversed by current procedures.”

Happy Birthday – The Editor Of Ace News – Ian Draper

Happy Birthday – The Editor Of Ace News – Ian Draper

Ian Draper

Ian Draper

It’s not often I will do these types of articles, I do them for family on another site. But I had to write what I am going to write. I don’t know what I will write, but I know it will be the right thing. Words will enter my mind and the outcome will be what I think about one of the most remarkable men I have ever met

His Name is Ian Draper and he is my editor here on Ace News Services. We have known each other over 6 months and in the short time I have known Ian he has been almost a father figure to me. When it comes to being wise, Ian ticks all the boxes, he is a living, growing learning guy who just oozed class in all he does.

Today is his birthday and he is, as many know, going through a hard time with a personal family issue. He is hurting but he is learning from it. I spoke to him on the phone just a while ago. We don’t speak as often as I would like, but I can only blame my disability Fibromyalgia. Ian knows on days we slot in a Skype call and I don’t show up where I am, he questions nothing.

Ian is a friend, he is more than a friend. As many know I believe in God in my own way. I don’t do religion or read books, I simply believe there is a higher source and the World call’s that source God. Ian is likewise. We don’t talk religion much but we talk life and understanding life. We talk about things I talk to my Dad about and one other person, 3 people in my World I can speak to in the way Ian and I speak. We have fun but we dissect life, we strip it down and Ian has become somewhat a teacher to and for me.

Ian will challenge my thinking, my writing and I love that about him. I have never met Ian yet but we are friends for life, that I know. We ask nothing from each other, just friendship. Ian trusts me with my Ace News Site here and with the Face book page that he has https://www.facebook.com/groups/acenewsservices/

Ian I know things are hard today, but I know whatever happens you will learn something from it tomorrow. You truly are an amazing guy. Here in Scotland I can’t be doing with many people, I humour them, I say “Yeah” but don’t really mean it, not many people can truly hold my attention. Ian is a man who I have all the time in the World for.

Ian I know days can be hard, as day turns to night and back again we learn. This experience is hard but you will come out better, I know you will

From Dawn the kids and I, happy Birthday my friend

Shaun

THIS IS THE PROPAGANDA WE MUST VOTE AWAY SCOTLAND – PLEASE SHARE!!!

See it?

See it?

By @ShaunyNews

I added this as a picture but I don’t think I explained what it was I saw and only one person has so far. Look at the time the BBC changed the page, the updated it 5 MINUTES after publishing it! See the first one was the BBC saying “Being Scottish” is a thing to be, a way of being! They then rushed to change the headline to “UK” Ebola nurse! So people all over Scotland were from the UK. See this is the propaganda right here. Make no mistake this isn’t just some wrong worded article by the BBC. They knew within 5 minutes they may upset their London masters. Saying “Scot’s Ebola Nurse” would give Scottish people a passionate feeling of being Scottish, so they edited that out.

UNREAL OR WHAT

Guys and Gal’s IT’S THE SMALL DETAIL we must look at. We have to take this for EXACTLY what this was by BBC Scotland. Look, it’s right there.  They gave “Scottish People” and deleted them, you and I, to being from the “UK” They nearly gave Scotland, you and I and identity. See it now?

I am glad the woman pulled through, all said, that was the most important thing here, she got better from Ebola. But guys, SEE! This is what they do. LOOK AT IT! Share it, share the meaning. We must see it now. This is UTTER PROPAGANDA against Scotland. Not some ‘Stupid mi-type’ Wake up people. We MUST vote SNP or Yes people into Hollyrood or we will forever have an identity places upon us from the very people we pay and before we know, like the USA we are living in a semi-Fascist state.

KEEP LOOKING, THE SMALL DETAIL SCOTLAND. DON'T BE FOOLED!

KEEP LOOKING, THE SMALL DETAIL SCOTLAND. DON’T BE FOOLED!

It’s the small detail! Share this, share the meaning, please guys!!

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://news.sky.com/story/1414218/huge-asteroid-to-fly-past-earth-on-monday

EDITED: Because I read in A.U. (Astronomical units, me bad) and I added it to miles. Still close and big, but so people can sleep tonight, I will edit 😀

NASA and the European Space Agencies are worried about Asteroid BL86 but won’t say it out loud, even though they are inside. I spoke to a man who knows a man who knows a man and I am assured both agencies are unsure on this huge Asteroid. It will come between Earth and our Moon, but nearer Earth, what they are not telling the public is they are ‘Unsure’ if our gravity will grab it, if it does it’s a bad one. E.L.E? I don’t know, certainly a World changer. Lets hope Earth doesn’t grab hold of this one guys, this is kinda close, you can see it with with binoculars. One thing, it’s Science, best guess. Will be fun to watch this, not often we can all view with small telescope and/or binoculars. Can watch live below, links there

An asteroid measuring up to 1,800ft across will hurtle past the Earth on Monday, NASA scientists say. The rock, called 2004 BL86, will miss us by 745,000 miles – about three times the distance between the Earth and the Moon – and amateur astronomers should be able to see it with telescopes and binoculars. Experts say it will be the closest encounter with a huge asteroid until 2027, when 1999 AN10 flies by.  It will also be the closest 2004 BL86 gets to the Earth for another 200 years. The asteroid was discovered in 2004 and is estimated to be about one-third of a mile in size – around the length of six football (Soccer) pitches, about the same as American football sized field

Asteroid 2004 BL86 will fly so close to earth Monday that it will be visible from small telescopes

Don Yeomans, from NASA’s Near Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said: “While it poses no threat to Earth for the foreseeable future, it’s a relatively close approach by a relatively large asteroid, so it provides us a unique opportunity to observe and learn more.” Scientists plan to use microwaves to create radar-generated images of the asteroid during its closest approach to Earth. “When we get our radar data back the day after the flyby, we will have the first detailed images,” said radar astronomer Lance Benner.

“At present, we know almost nothing about the asteroid, so there are bound to be surprises.” Asteroids provided Earth with the building blocks of life and much of its water, and in the future may become valuable sources of mineral ores, scientists believe.
