  • Hermitage Castle dates back to 1240 when Lord Nicholas de Soulesback built a  timber structure. However, the present structure is a result of an extensive building programme by William, Lord Douglas. His son, George Douglas, Earl of Angus made further modifications by adding the four towers on each corner
▫️
Hermitage remained in the family until the late 15th century when Archibald Douglas, Earl of Angus - whom James IV suspected of treason with the English - was ordered to exchange the castle. Patrick Hepburn, Earl of Bothwell and a loyal supporter of the King, became the new owner
▫️
Patrick's descendants, however, were not as loyal. James V and later Mary, Queen of Scots confiscated Hermitage Castle for periods of time. The family recovered the castle but remained notorious - by 1566 James Hepburn was rumoured to be the lover of Mary, Queen of Scots. This rumour was fuelled when Mary rode out to Hermitage to see James after he had been wounded. Less than a year later he was implicated in the murder of Mary’s husband, Lord Darnley.
▫️
As Mary’s regime destabilised, Bothwell fled Scotland for Scandinavia. Whilst trying to raise an army he was arrested and imprisoned at Dragsholm Castle in Denmark where he remained until his death. Hermitage was taken into State ownership until restored to the Bothwell family by James VI but was once again seized in 1594 and sold to Sir Walter Scott.
▫️
Following the Union of the Crowns in 1603, the role of Hermitage as a border fortress declined and it drifted into ruin.

  • Ayla: The Daughter of War (2017)

Description: During the Korean War, a young girl is saved by Süleyman, a sergeant in the Turkish Brigade who gives her the nickname Ayla. The two form a friendship despite the language barrier between them but are torn apart when Süleyman must return home.

It might turn you away because it's not in English but I love watching biographical movies from different countries because I get to learn about things about a countries history that had no idea about. 
As soon as I read the description of this movie, I looked everywhere for a free English subbed version because it's exactly my favourite kind of movie. But I couldn't find one anywhere so I rented it (that's £3.49 gone). I have absolutely no regrets!

This movie starts off slow with a light bit of romance between the main character (Süleyman) and the female love interest. This is a romance that I thought was sweet and thought would last. But the true story begins when Süleyman is drafted to South Korea where the North Korean army are invading. 
In South Korea, after having their vehicle destroyed in the woods, Süleyman and his army friends walk on foot and find Ayla surrounded by dead bodies. I love this scene because there's something so exciting when your the characters in a movie are expecting action but find something unexpected. And that's what Ayla was (a super cute surprise). They take Ayla back to the army base and keep her against orders. Ayla and Süleyman grows stronger. It is the sweetest thing to watch as Süleyman and his friend teach Ayla their language (Turkish) because she speaks Korean. And it's so beautiful to see how a little girl can bring them so much joy. 
Süleyman grows to love Ayla as his own daughter and you will cry (well at least I cried) from seeing just how much he will do to stay with Ayla. I never thought I would watch a movie that would make me feel soooo much but this has taken the biscuit.

  • Quick Fact: Martha Jefferson, daughter to Thomas Jefferson, was a master brewer at Monticello. In her first year brewing, she produced some 170 gallons of beer, and according to Gregg Smith, she once bought 7 pounds of hops for an old used shirt. As Thomas was inclined to use beer to promote temperance, it only makes sense that his house and family would brew beer. .

  • “Born of Egg (Strange Birth Series)” by Ernst Neizvestny.  1979, bronze, 25x20x13 in., Ed 7
.
Once, in a conversation with sculptor Henry Moore (who was instrumental in helping Neizvestny leave Soviet Russia for the West in 1975), Ernst asked him about the meaning of holes in his sculpture. Moore replied, “A hole in a sculpture creates the sensation of three-dimensionality and makes it possible for one to sense its volume without walking around it.” And why do you have holes in your sculptures?” Moore asked Ernst - “Because I have a hole in my body“ he answered, referring to the wounds he sustained in WWII. Moore thought about this and said, “It turns out that I’m a classicist and you are a romantic.” (From Ernst Neizvestny’s collected essays on art and philosophy)

Born out of critical wounds in the war (a bullet pierced his chest), Ernst began to introduce voids amidst solid space of the sculpture. He creates visual complex interrelations between space and volume, concave and convex shapes - it’s what lends them their extraordinary dynamism and creates immense tension. .
