The Libraries Lessons of Life
This page/category I have created after I filled a diary full of just one liner thoughts. Once a week I will share one of my one-liners. This category is a bit different from my “Random Thoughts” page as with my random thoughts they can go on a bit.
I recently read an article that was writing about “Animal Rebellions” (I think they’re called). They took a lot of milk, somewhere in England. They caused about 80,000 pounds in damage. As well as losing Farmer’s income.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m from Australia, and so we have a lot of Farmers who suffer, just to feed someone like me. Out of all the careers in Australia, they probably face some of the most extreme hardships of Mother Nature. Farmers have killed themselves, some have lost entire farms due to droughts.
So when I see people actively go out of there way, to not think about the Farmers, I get really annoyed. Now, it is completely commendable to want to get Farmers onto better systems that work better for the Environment. You just don’t do that by destroying people’s current livelihoods. If you want to prove how much better you’ve think you’ve got it. Prove It. Start a farm of your own.
Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE was an English writer known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, particularly those revolving around fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
Here is a list of the books that Agatha Christie wrote over her life:
One of the things that I found interesting when QE2 passed. Is how little people understand how the Monarchy even works, and I’m not even British.
You know how everyone keeps having a go at Meghan and Harry for talking badly about the Royal Family? When they, in fact, never have. They’ve talked about how the FIRM have treated them. Just like the Queens twitter account did not wish Meghan a happy birthday and the others did. No, the Queen, couldn’t just say what she wanted too.
So, no, the Queen could not just condemn things, in her name.
The amount of documentaries I’ve watched about Henry the 8th, Elizabeth the 1st, Mary Queen of Scots. Their lives are NOT their own. They DON’T speak for themselves. They are surrounded by those who speak for them. Which is why YOU have to be so careful about what you read/listen about them.
It’s why I only listen to when they do actually use their own words. I watch their body language, I listen to them speaking.
Let’s have a bit of a break from the mean and the bad and the toxic real world.
I have so many colouring in books, I tend to get a lot of them for Birthdays and Christmas, and you know what? I am not complaining. They are such a great distractions. Just put the tv on, or some music, or whatever takes your fancy and colour away. I’ve got Lions, Tigers and Bears that are pink, blue and green and gold and purple, and well a bit of everything.
I actually get a little impatient with the mandala type ones. I think because, well, they’re mandalas. They are like, a shape and if you don’t colour them in “right” they can just look like a mess. Once you’ve got a colour, you kind of have to stick with it. For me, that can get a little boring.
The first one that I bought, as an adult. Was a children’s fairy one. I bought it in America, when I used to “live there”. I’d work my butt off in Australia, and then go and stay with my then partner for about 3-6 months. But I could never work in America, so I didn’t. So there were times when I had nothing going on. With the way America, sometimes my partner could work from 8 in the morning until 10 at night. His Walmart closed at 11…or was it 10? Either way, he could do a full on day.
So, over the years. I’ve bought myself some, other’s have given them to me for my birthday and Christmas. Yet, so far, no double ups!
Doug West (Fred’s Brother) and Sam West (Fred’s niece)
I was watching the above program, and it was really quiet interesting. You know, I never once even thought about the Wests having a family separate from the one that they harmed and killed. I guess, in a way though, that they have been harmed.
Doug West, seems like such a sweet man and the complete opposite to his killer brother, Fred. Doug, kept saying that he felt the need to apoligise to the families who were harmed by Rose and Fred. As Sam West pointed out as well. One, that Doug should never apoligise for what Fred and Rose did, because Doug didn’t do it. Also, two the West family, lost family members too. I don’t mean Fred, I mean the girls that Fred and Rose West killed, including their own daughters, Doug’s nieces.
I couldn’t help, sitting there and watching Doug and Sam West, they are lovely, people! Doug just seems like the nicest guy. It was really hard for me to put him and Fred and John, together. I also had no idea that another West brother was also being looked into harming minors, and hung himself.
I will never forget that Former President, Trump, entertained the Saudi Royal Family. Saudi Arabia, where the 9/11 Terrorists came from, at Mar-A-Lago. I will never forget that his cult, still support him. I will never forget that, while they post about how they “will never forget”. They did, forget.
Not too brag or anything, but I have read some of Will Shakespeare work. I was the only in my Year 12 (Senior) class who could understand, and I was quiet proud of that. There are some on here that I would admit to not reading too though.
“Interview with a vampire” I haven’t even seen the movie, lol
I’ve never heard of ‘Flowers in the Attic’ by V. C. Andrews either.
I have no honest interest in reading “Lord of the Flies”.
They include the Bible in this list though, lol. I don’t think even those Christian fanatics have read it!
There are two times of the year, I really dislike. I wouldn’t say hate, but that’s a bit extreme and it’s not like the weather does it on purpose … or does it?
One of those times is when it’s changing from Autumn to Winter. When you have four seasons in a day. The days are not yet horrible, but they loom and that is slightly depressing, because you know the dark weather is coming.
The other time, is now. When it goes from Winter to Spring. Honestly the biggest thing is, that I don’t like never knowing what to actually wear. Take Wednesday, it was beautiful! First warmish day in a few months. Had to work, but still, gorgeous. Luckily, where I work we’ve got big windows and I got to see the birds play too. Then Thursday was all grey, and while not drowning with rain. Had little specks, here and there.
I bring at least three jacket type tops. One is a light rain jacket, it’s pretty hand really. Hood is huge though, it covers my face. The other two one is a light cardigan, and the other is a smart cardigan, that’s a little than the rest. They’re all nice, but on Wednesday, I didn’t need any of them. Then Thursday, I needed all of them.
Wednesday was 20 c, which is 68 F. Thursday was 14 c, which is 57.2 f.
The International Day of Charity is an international day observed annually on 5 September. It was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012.
I love Charity! I love giving to it, I love shopping from it. There is nothing that I don’t love about Charity. I think my “favourite” Charity at the moment is “The Guide Dogs, Australia”. There is a BIG tie there though with the “Australian Conservation Foundation“. Of course, animals, haha.
We have an ad for a Charity in Australia that helps you get Australian kids to school. I sort of feel weird about it. I love giving “things” to like the homeless, like if I have nice clothing, I get rid of the ones, I haven’t worn in forever or don’t fit me anymore. I just feel with that one, maybe the Governments should do more with that?
Like, if kids cant bring lunch/food with them. Maybe there should be some sort of Government Funding to help kids get a lunch? You know what I mean? Blind people, autistic people, VETS. They’re all things that people need help with, like having a Guide Dog. I don’t know, it makes me feel mean, lol.
We’re Australians, we should be able to do things like give a lunch to kids for school. Have a charity that works for kids getting school clothes, do you know what I mean? Like even if it’s something to do with the local Libraries. You can could have “fashion shows” to raise money to get kids clothes…I don’t know, lol … I remember when I was young, we did that for where I did ballet. I still can kind of remember it and it was fun.
