RABAT, MDINA’S SUBURB

4 hour tour

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Depart quayside and drive to Rabat to meet, the renowned Lecturer & Archaeologist Peter J. Shield who will guide you through Wignacourt Museum, and St Paul’s Grotto Wignacourt is a baroque residence of the Chaplains of the Knights of Malta inaugurated by Grand Master Aloph de Wignacourt (1601-1622) as well as of its contents. It forms part of a Pauline complex just outside the walls of the old Roman City of Malta and is materially linked to St Paul’s Grotto, the cradle of Christianity in Malta, the place where St Paul the Apostle in A.D. 60 is believed to  have founded the first Christian Community on the island. Accompanied by Dr Shields, you will proceed to St Agatha’s Catacombs which were meant to be hiding places during persecutions or as living quarters. They were underground cemeteries dug in the globigerina limestone, consisting of long narrow corridors with tombs on each side and vaults.

You will then walk to Mdina for a walk through the town, past St. Paul’s Cathedral and then to the Bastions for a panoramic view of the Island. On termination of the tour return to quayside for re-embarkation.

ImagineNation – Gun Control!

INTRO: A weekly blog from the pen of PJ Shield.
I am now in my 80’s and despite my 9 books published to date and my Radio and TV programs (http://worldofunexplainedmysteries.com ) I have never created a blog until NOW!
I awoke one morning with the idea of creating a new ‘Nation’.
Years ago in Australia I recall a land owner who decided to secede from the government of Australia and created his own ‘country’ within a country – with his own currency, postage and passports. I often wonder how that all ended!
The memory did however prompt me to consider creating my own ‘nation’, one that I would like to call the “Imagine Nation”…… in cyberspace!
In my ‘Nation’ we will create every conceivable power, service and product that the Imagination can create. Someone once said that “ if you can conceive it you can achieve it!” Time alone will tell.

Imagine Nation 3.

I am having so much fun with this blog however I am greatly disappointed that so few of you have chosen to ‘comment’! Please get your thinking caps on and and help me create this imaginary world that we all know will Never happen!

Today I want to direct my thoughts to my dear friend Greg in Australia who I have heard so little from until he joined our ‘Nation’ yesterday! Thanks Greg and welcome. ? His role in the Australian Police force prompted my thoughts.

1.No question or discussion – ban all Assault and Military style weapons! Period!

2. In the USA our constitutional right to bear arms should relate back to the arms we had when the law was passed! Want an assault weapon? – get a Gatling gun!

3. Now here is a great idea. We reintroduce the Duel! This, in the Imagine Nation would be an annual event and only members of the NRA (Brave men that they are) – could take part – in fact I think we should make participation compulsory!

We could hold the ‘shoot offs’ in stadiums a bit like our Roman ancestors. It could even become part of the Olympics! Dear Donald (Trump that is) could host the event!

To steel an idea from my good friend Milt Larson (Of Magic Castle fame)- it could also be held at the annual get together of the KKK and the NAACP!

Now if this doesn’t get your creative juices flowing – nothing will!!!

ImagineNation 2 – Health care.

Imagine Nation 2

In my Imagine Nation, Health care would be a priority! Treatment and Hospitalization would be FREE. All doctors and surgeons would be paid by the state on a sliding scale depending on their qualifications! These funds would be available by diverting the funds that are currently spent on foreign support.(Not I stress defense!) Private hospitals could exist for those in a position to pay for them!

This will upset a lot of people – I will put a cap on earnings from whatever source. No one will be allowed to earn an annual income that exceeds 20 times the average wage!

So if the average wage is $35,000 p.a. – the top income allowed would be $700,000 period!

Sorry sport stars,movie stars,pop stars and TV and music giants!

No individual tax would apply however all income in excess of the $700,000.00 would be applied to fund the Nations economy (health,defense,education, etc.)

Is that imaginative or what?

Imagine Nation – Peace & Computerized Jury’s

In my ‘Nation’ we will create every conceivable power, service and product that the Imagination can create. Someone once said that “ if you can conceive it you can achieve it!” Time alone will tell.
Peace in our time would sit firmly at the top of any list; so let’s start there! By the way I have numbered these so you can reference them in your comments and suggestions.
The United Nations is a body that despite the good intentions the founders may have had – it does in my opinion very little to achieve world peace.
1. Let’s set up a representative body consisting of someone from every nation on our planet with the power to end all conflicts and disputes whether internal or international – all members would have to pass an eligibility exam which showed they were free of any religious or racial bias; have reached at least a high school level of education in their country of origin and not have a last name that begins with T, or ends with P! (sorry about that – just kidding!)
2. Remember the old TV cartoon series “Thunderbirds are GO”? We need a real life version of them!
3. Perhaps we could design a computer that could resolve all disputes?
4. Could a computer one day replace our jury system! That way your wealth, public image or influence could not get in the way of deciding whether or not you killed your wife and her visiting friend? The defense and the prosecution would feed their evidence into a central computer and the decision/judgment would be printed out for the Judge to read!
5. All aircraft would be fitted with a simple ‘loJack’ tracking system that meant that we ALWAYS knew where the aircraft was! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LoJack
I hope you get the idea and join me in creating our own special “Imagine Nation”
