New Raffle Fundraiser: The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people take their own lives, and 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change all this. They promote a platform that welcomes positive dialogue about mental health, what is percieved as masculinity and all cultures. Today's world is a difficult time, and as the percentage of suicide is predominantly men, we have to keep in check as much as possible with each other. I'm going to hold a raffle fundraiser with all proceeds going towards this cause. I'll draw a winner on Fri 2nd Oct, and the prize is a daysit with a design of your choice. Entry to the raffle is £10, you may donate more if you so wish but it will all count as one entry. Email me at goatskullshirley.com for details on donating 🖤🦇🖤🦇🖤 . . . . . . . . . . .

Scottish Folklore: The Beithir. It is described as "the largest and most deadly kind of serpent" or as a dragon (but without certain typical draconic features such as wings or fiery breath). It dwells in mountainous caves and glens and is equipped with a venomous sting. If a person is stung then they must head for the nearest body of water such as a river or loch. If they can reach it before the beithir does then they are cured, but if the monster reaches it first then the victim is doomed. The beithir is considered one of the fuath (a term for the various monsters and spirits associated with water). Design also available, email goatskullshirley.com for details 🦇🦇🦇 . . . . . .
