Back To The Future

Do you recall the day when, in 1985, the first of the Back To The Future movies was released.

The car above is the DeLorean DMC2 which was the dream of car designer John DeLorean. Unfortunately the car was not a great success, with the company falling into receivership due mainly to the unstable economy and rocketing fuel costs. But it still achieved fame by featuring in all the Back To The Future movies.

Benz Patent Motorwagen

Sticking with the car theme for the moment, the first motor car was the Benz Patent Motorwagen*, created by Karl Benz who is recognised as the founder of  Mercedes-Benz cars.

Festival of Goddess Cerridwin

The Festival of Cerridwin is a Celtic festival honouring Cerridwin.

Cerridwin was a goddess fevered in Celtic culture as a bringer of good harvests.

 

It is also said that she had a potion that gave the powers of creativity and knowledge. Her symbol is that of a pig, a symbol that often represents good fortune.
