Lambs to the Slaughter
Further details have today been released re the Olympic torch relay; a 70 day journey with each torchbearer carrying the flame "for about 300m and about 110 people will take part each day". (Try some multiplication). "It will pass through 1,018 places as well as visiting Dublin on its journey to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games on 27 July." (And some addition perhaps too, thinking backwards and ignoring zeros)."
Day 22 (the double eleven) - on 9/6 - of the event features a journey through Scotland from Glasgow to Inverness, the lucky media-highlighted carrier in this instance a young schoolgirl , Lorna Linfield, "from near Fort William" pictured below with the lamb. Lorna apparently plays in a music group and helps out with a charity called "Mary's Meals".
The oldest carrier of the torch is to be a "Diana Gould", currently aged 99, who will carry the torch through Barnet, historically a high vantage stopping point on the main Edinburgh - York - London road.

Note - Link to Tsarion Irish OriginsAppendixes on right gives more detailed info on the lamb and it's importance to "freemasonry"; notwithstanding their lambskin aprons, York rites, Scottish rites etc.
