Dual Porpoise Cards


I am de-clogging the loft ahead of me developing geriatric tendencies and I came across an old product I produced when working with artist Jim Harker,  an old school friend. It was a card back to attach to a fine art print to make it into a greeting card. There was a range of sensible sentiments and then there was this one. It is in the Geordie lingo so see what you make of it

Aa was ganna send ye a pictia
Of some gadgie in the toon
Staggerin' and caallin' for Hughie
Havin' supped several Broon
Fower pints of Fed
And a Courage (by mistake)
Followed by two kebabs and a vindaloo
And some chips in stotty cake

Such a technocolour yawn
Wi' diced carrots in the mixture
Ah think ye'll agree
Would mek a colourful pictia
But that up on yer loonge waall
Wadn't mek ye ower keen
And it's a canny bit more nicer
To hev a propa local scene

I'm not sure this will mean anything to anyone but at least it's preserved for posterity. Any remaining card backs and much else of my past are now in the bin. It is very cathartic this loft de-clogging

Thirdly, this study argues that state land policies were essential in the construction of the idea of a modern state of Jordan. Cheap Jordan Shoes, The first major articulation of the state's relationship to society in Jordan lay in its land policies and society’s reaction to them. This began with the Ottoman period and lasted well into the 20th century. In no other colonial setting in the Middle Hast did the state so thoroughly intervene in and restructure land matters by the 1940s, and the introduction of European concepts of land ownership and exploitation went far toward contributing to the development not only of the country’s economy but of its identity and self-conceptualization as well. 'This Western-designed campaign to survey land,Retro Jordans, establish and register definitive land rights, and its creation of a new system of land taxation, were thus of vital importance in creating the very nature of modern “Jordan." In the first place, these state programs

linked the state with society's need to secure private individual property rights at the expense of collective village rights at a crucial period of time. The state came to occupy a role, alongside the village, the family,jordan releases, and the shaykh, as a main arbiter of a peasant’s access to land rights. The state also was perceived as a positive force in society by upholding individual claims even if it dealt a blow to corporate village claims; land was now owned through a state-issued deed, not just through village custom. Persons of low socio-economic status, women,Jordans for sale, and others often used state procedures to their advantage and secured claims to land long denied them by more powerful social actors.

A sense of “Jordan” was also created by state-societal interaction in land matters. Property by the 1950s was no longer defined merely by conceptualizations of a share of the village's land but by state-issued maps and deeds. The state entered forcefully into the equation. In surveying land and registering land rights systematically,Cheap Jordans, the state was reconceptualizing the spatial dimensions of the country as well.Village boundaries were also literally drawn by the state on maps. Popular notions of space were being changed by the government. These processes were done in consultation with the villagers, but their result was that vilhages conceived of their socio-economic space in terms of reference created by the state along Western lines.
