This was taken in 1973 when I was a wee fellow and had more hair. L to R. Christine, cousin Ann, her sister Emily, their Brother Harry, me, my sister Rose and my Brother Alan. This was just before Rose went off to UK to study nursing. She never completed it. If you look carefully you will see it taken in a wooden house. I grew up in an Attap house on stilts in a Kampong.
It been a while. Yes I know. I haven’t posted for a long time. You see its because of social media. What do I post and where? I even don’t post often to FB. You know that social media giant that keeps us glued to our phone and tablets and all our other devices.
We have had the Olympics 2016 and Australia seems to have done well. Yeah! But some amazing stories came out of the games. Like Singapore winning its 1st Gold medal in the 100M Butterfly by Joseph Schooling. Well done Joseph. FIJI winning the Rugby 7 a side. Great job guys and Australia winning the Modern Olympics Penthalon for womens. Wow! The triumphs that some achieved is amazing. I am sure there were many more. But all in all the Rio Games was a success.
Life now goes back to normal. What’s on for next week. Well lots. Maybe I’ll talk about that another day. God Bless you all.
There is just something that seems to capture my attention when I step out of our house each day. I often look to the sky for inspiration and to see if the day will turn out well. Call me suspicious but I believe we live our lives with an intended purpose that if often not known to us. Some call it Karma others fate. But nature tends to lay it out to us pretty simple. That is why I look to the sky. The clouds in this picture with the setting Moon just seem to say. All will be well. I will shine for you today and everyday. There is nothing to it more basic than that. Try not to read more into it. Life will flow as it should. It always does. Enjoy it! Live.

Australia was once considered “the lucky country”. We sold dirt to every continent and received all the fancy household goods and nick knacks we could possibly desire. Those other nations never bothered us because we were too stupid to be a threat, and we kept dealing the lovely cheap dirt out like a donkey following a carrot. What happened to those fruitful years of plenty? What happened to the seemingly endless economic prosperity that fuelled our first world society? Well, like most failed civilisations, Australians and the Australians who ran Australia were particularly too stupid. You probably have all the crazy ideas and common sense to see why we are screwed as a nation but I want to alert you only to the tipping point toward our decline.
The point at which this country made a turn for the worse was simply when Pizza-Hut restaurants started closing their doors. You…

Do you Remember when:
I do, having grown up in the 60′ it seems all that long ago. Life was not really much different from now. It just was simpler. Why, well we had a less to occupy our time with. TV was just beginning, games were whatever you could make. There was very little arcade games or a DS or cable and so many other stuff as the kids say in school. Stuff, its come to a point that we are not really sure what is occupying our time anymore. Stuff that come from things…many things. Hope you like this, I got it from a good friend and teacher.
They threatened to keep children back a year if they failed the school year. . . And they did!
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles?
Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn’t because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.
As well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket, Hula Hoops, skating and visits to the pool, eating lemonade powder or liquorice sticks.
I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dare to pass it on. To remember what a Double Dare is, read on, and remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care.
Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their ‘Grown-Up’ Life.
Double Dare You!
