Inside the Church of Bom Jesus in Goa

The body of St Francis Xavier lies in a silver casket in the Church of Bom Jesus in Goa. Ceremonies to honor his death are performed on December 3, the day he was buried. Now it lies in a closed casket.

Don’t concrete over everything – consider the Planet!

Be unstoppable about keeping concrete out of our Planet!


Don’t allow developers to concrete over everything. Concrete seals in and kills the soil underneath, making the land ugly and emptied out, of no use to anyone. Opt for parks and gardens, playing fields and courtyards of fresh earth, flowers and grass.From: 1001 Ways to Save the Planet: Bernadette Vallely.


Wherever possible paint fresh greenery over your home, walls, gardens, gates, post boxes, anywhere!

The most heartwarming feeling I get when on holiday in the UK, is to see the cheeky, unstoppable English ivy growing over everything! If it is not the ivy, then it is the rose, the tulip, and mostly the hydrangea! They clamber over everything. They are all keeping the concrete out of our lives!
