FMSSAS eNews 11.07.16 (2nd attempt)

Hello everyone
Yesterday 15th July was St. Swithun's Day, a day on which people watch the weather, for tradition says that whatever the weather is like on St. Swithun's Day, it will continue so for the next forty days.
There is a weather-rhyme, well known throughout the British Isles since Elizabethan times. copied from
'St. Swithun's day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St. Swithun's day if thou be fair
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair.'
So whatever the weather was like for you, expect plenty more of it if the legend is to be believed!
28.  People say that before you die, your life flashes before your eyes.  Make it worth watching.

Could a fibromite be Miss England?
Last week I told you about Simran Gill who has suffered from fibromyalgia all her life.  At the last moment she entered the Miss England competition and won her heat and from many thousands of girls is now into the final on the 18th of July at the Birmingham Hilton.
She is a passionate advocate for fibromyalgia.  She’s number 05Black on the second row.  Oh NO she’s not!  She’s 08AsianModel on the third row!  So if you would care to vote for her it could help raise fibromyalgia awareness.  Sorry about my error.  She has promised that she will mention her condition when she is interviewed on TV. Currently you can vote by text which will rank the contestants, with the top 15 guaranteed to be interviewed.
Please text your support to ensure Simran's opportunity to speak out.  At the moment (Weds) she is in 12th place so she urgently needs your text support.
