I always think of the Maldive Islands as a hot equatorial place, with sultry summer days to laze about on the beaches and relax at luxury spas, but evidently they get a few icy winters as well, and need their sledge dogs to get around through the snows.

Several of these dogs have been shown on their stamps.

That last one has me a trifle perplexed! I have heard of flying pigs BUT.
Pigs might fly - BRITISH
People say pigs might fly, to mean that something that has just been mentioned is very unlikely to happen. `There's a chance he isn't involved in this, of course.' — `And pigs might fly.' Note: People say that something will happen or be done when pigs fly to mean that in reality it will never happen or be done. My private reaction was `Yeah, we'll do it when pigs fly.' Note: People often vary this expression. `Maybe one day we'll be rich.' — `Oh look, I just saw a pig fly by my window.'

pigs might (or can) fly used ironically to express disbelief. chiefly British

"Thinking again?" the Duchess asked, with another dig of her sharp little chin.
"I've a right to think," said Alice sharply, for she was beginning to feel a little worried.
"Just about as much right," said the Duchess, "as pigs have to fly ..."


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 9.


wnd-1884-HareMail.jpg
Wonderland 1884 Haremail, G1.10.



American literature author John Steinbeck was told by his professor that he would be an author when pigs flew. When he eventually became a novelist, he started to print every book he wrote with the insignia "Ad astra per alas porci" (to the stars on the wings of a pig). He sometimes added an image of a flying pig, called "Pigasus".

A pig first flew on 4 November 1909, when John Moore-Brabazon, 1st Baron Brabazon of Tara, took a small pig with him on board an aeroplane.

Note for Nigel: as far as I know, the paintings by Eugene von Guérard are in various Australian galleries.

Here is one of his best known works. It is held at the National Gallery of Australia, in Canberra.

Yep, quite right — I was fully focussed on the Kallang Airport article, which I read with interest.

nz-08-narnia-set-U.jpg
New Zealand 2008 Narnia: "Prince Caspian" movie, the set.

Wikipedia wrote:The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a 2008 high fantasy film co-written and directed by Andrew Adamson, based on Prince Caspian (1951), the second published, fourth chronological novel in C. S. Lewis's epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia.

In Narnia, almost 1,300 years have passed after the Pevensie siblings left. Caspian, a Telmarine prince, is awoken by his mentor Doctor Cornelius, who informs him that his aunt has just given birth to a son and that his life is now in grave danger. Cornelius gives him Queen Susan's ancient magical horn and instructs him to use it if he is in dire need of help. Knowing that his Uncle Miraz would kill him in order to be king, Caspian flees. Chased by several Telmarine soldiers, Caspian falls off his horse and encounters two Narnian dwarfs and a talking badger in the woods. One of the dwarfs, Trumpkin, is captured by the soldiers after sacrificing himself to save Caspian, while the other dwarf, Nikabrik, and the badger, Trufflehunter, save Caspian. Not knowing that they are trying to save him, Caspian blows the magical horn, trying to summon help.

In England, the four Pevensie children wait at the Strand tube station for their train which will take them to boarding school. One year has passed in their world after they left Narnia. Just as the train pulls into the station the station tears apart, transporting them back to Narnia. There, they discover their castle, Cair Paravel, was attacked and ruined in their absence. The Pevensies save a bound and gagged Trumpkin, who is about to be drowned, and they set off together.

Meanwhile, Nikabrik and Trufflehunter lead Caspian to the Dancing Lawn, where all the old Narnians have assembled. Caspian convinces them to help him win his throne. Caspian and his troops encounter the Pevensies and Trumpkin, and they journey together to Aslan's How, a huge underground hall built over the Stone Table. Lucy wants to wait for Aslan, but Peter decides they have waited long enough and suggests attacking Miraz's castle. The Narnians succeed in infiltrating the castle, but Peter calls for a retreat when the gate is sabotaged. Half of the Narnians manage to escape, but the rest are trapped behind the closed gate and brutally slaughtered by crossbowmen.

Nikabrik tells Caspian that there is a way he can claim his throne and guarantee Miraz's death. When Caspian agrees, a hag uses black sorcery to summon the White Witch. From inside a wall of ice, the Witch tries to convince Caspian to give her a drop of his blood in order to set her free. Peter, Edmund, Trumpkin and Lucy arrive and dispatch Nikabrik while Edmund shatters the wall of ice before the Witch can be freed.

Miraz and his army arrive at Aslan's How. Peter challenges Miraz to a one-on-one duel, in order to buy Lucy and Susan time to find Aslan. Peter is able to wound Miraz, and gives his sword to Caspian to finish him off. Caspian, who cannot bring himself to do it, spares Miraz's life but says that he intends to give Narnia back to its people. Lord Sopespian, one of Miraz's generals, suddenly stabs and kills Miraz with an arrow and blames the Narnians, igniting a massive battle between the Narnians and the Telmarines. Lucy, meanwhile, has found Aslan in the woods; he awakens the trees and the whole forest suddenly attacks the Telmarines. Lord Sopespian orders the retreat, only to be confronted by Lucy and Aslan. Aslan summons a river god, which wipes out the majority of the Telmarine army, including Sopespian; all of the surviving Telmarine soldiers surrender and hand over their weapons.

Caspian becomes the King of Narnia and, with Aslan's help, brings peace between the Narnian and Telmarine kingdoms.

Sedang 1999 Doctor Who - dalek minisheet.

Sedang issued this attractive minisheet showing an evil dalek, to celebrate the incredible discovery of a previously-lost early episode of the series, by a New Zealand film buff and philatelist.

Yes, I enjoy viewing Dr Who too! But still hoping those pesky daleks don't show up tonight and ruin my day.
Wikipedia wrote:Daleks:

The planet Skaro suffered a thousand-year war between two societies: the Kaleds and the Thals. During this time-period, many natives of Skaro became badly mutated by fallout from nuclear weapons and chemical warfare. The Kaled government believed in genetic purity and swore to "exterminate the Thals" for being inferior. Believing his own society was becoming weak and that it was his duty to create a new master race from the ashes of his people, the Kaled scientist Davros genetically modified several Kaleds into squid-like life-forms he called Daleks, removing "weaknesses" such as mercy and sympathy while increasing aggression and survival-instinct. He then integrated them with tank-like robotic shells equipped with advanced technology based on the same life-support system he himself used since being burned and blinded by a nuclear attack. His creations became intent on dominating the universe by enslaving or purging all "inferior" non-Dalek life.

I feel Richard's cake was left too long in the rain and the sweet green icing running down fermented into C2H5OH. I wish I could find the recipe again.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

Pity there was no stamp for Peter O'Toole, now there was an actor who could turn his hand from comedy(What's New Pussycat?) to drama(Lawrence Of Arabia) with consummate ease.
