The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation. It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Its strategic location, guarding what was, until the 1890s, the farthest downstream crossing of the River Forth, has made it an important fortification in the region from the earliest times. stirlingcastleclangregorscottishrootsheritagefamilytreescotlandscottishclansclanmacgregorhereditarychiefcounsiltartanplaidbagpipeshistorygeneologygeneologicalsocietyhttps://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/4d764a226c2fbcc55f419c3b02be8510/5C5FCFAE/t51.2885-15/e35/41345946_238450386836639_5482157977568782227_n.jpg2018-09-18

What exists now is the remnant township and a complex archaeological landscape relating to 150 years of gold production and domestic activity."
Dr Kevin Rains from our Brisbane office will deliver a presentation at next week's ASHA conference, based on Niche’s involvement in Carpentaria Gold’s Buck Reef West Expansion Project at Ravenswood, north Queensland.

151736654815173665482018-09-18Famous radio broadcaster Aunt Daisy (Maud Basham) was remembered today with the unveiling of a plaque in her honour to coincide with the celebration of 125 years of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. She broadcast for 27 years from the Hope Gibbons building (on the corner of Taranaki and Dixon streets) and the plaque is on the Dixon Street footpath outside the building. Two other notable Wellington women will have plaques unveiled in coming weeks to continue the women’s suffrage theme: Catholic nun and social worker Suzanne Aubert (also known as Sister Mary Joseph and Mother Aubert), and writer Iris Wilkinson, better known as Robin Hyde.

Nothing gets in the way of footy and a Victorian, even in 1904.

416655865941665586592018-09-18Not going to lie~ today started off with feeling literally anything but great. In the thick of growing pains, and it’s not easy, and I had a slightly less then productive morning.
This afternoon a truck arrived with new to me belongings.
The first boxes... were interesting 😂 you can check my stories for those... later this evening, after I stepped away from it all, took some time to reconnect with myself, I came back and made the most beautiful discoveries.
A jewelry box filled from my grandmother, Gloria Flores, filled with her gifts. I never met my grandma who I was named after, but I always felt a kinship with her.
During ceremony time, I’ve been making more of a point to connect with my ancestors, and she’s always there.
As a kid, I hated my name. It’s only as I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown into it and enjoy it so so much.
These were her lemon 🍋 drop earrings that I love, an ivory eagle with our name on it, and these other beautiful gems.
My mom also packed up old art pieces from high school and my heart almost exploded ~ I’ve been wanting to turn our basement into an art haven for a long time and felt extra motivated to get that project going.
I have all these precious gifts from my family surrounding me, and I’ve never felt more love in a home I was able to call mine.
I’ve got a coaching client this evening, and haven’t packed for convention yet (leaving in 14 hours) but my heart is full and I feel better then I have in weeks ✨💗✨
I have literally no clue what is going on in my life, or what dress I am wearing for recognition, but I know I’ll be wearing some of this blissful jewelry and our pin 🦅 https://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/e769cb28d6a97ab6d735e92b36ae7e04/5C216ED6/t51.2885-15/e35/41120864_712941852397836_5176035907249710678_n.jpg2018-09-18
