March 31st

March the 31st is Trans Visibility Day. Soooooooooooooo, saying that. It might get really vicious on all the social media. For myself, I am determined to keep today and tomorrow as positive as I can. I’m going to write a little something tomorrow to be positive, but you might find it a little boring, haha.

Also well done to the Guardian! (US though).

Trans kids on the Republican bills targeting them “I’m not a problem to society”

I wonder how many “we’re protecting the kids” will actually listen though?

The symbol is called Odal rune — Here’s A Thing…

The main CPAC stage where Republicans and other conservatives are gathering this weekend in Florida looks eerily similar to an old Nazi symbol … something that’s causing utter outrage. Somebody pointed out the design, noting the stage appears to be shaped like an emblem the Nazis proudly flashed during WWII. And no, it’s not the […]

What is your proudest moment?

Do you know what my proudest moment has been in my nearly 37 years of living? I was holding Zali, our other furbubba, at our old house. There was a step outside, that wasn’t secure. I was holding her, when it come unstuck. I held her, and didn’t drop her, as I went down and the step fell on me. I didn’t even squeeze her. I don’t know why I felt like sharing that 🤣 She didn’t appreciate it, she still loved mum more, lol

International Book and Library Lovers Day

I actually discovered this day about two days after Feb 14th last year and I actually scheduled this post a year in advance. I felt it was such an amazing idea!

14th February is about sharing the love of books! #bookgivingday
International Book Giving Day is a 100% volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books.

Most children in developing countries do not own books.
In the United Kingdom, one-third of children do not own books.
In the United States, two-thirds of children living in poverty do not own books.

International Book Giving Day’s focus is on encouraging people worldwide to give a book to a child on February 14th. We invite individuals to

1) gift a book to a friend or family member,

2) leave a book in a waiting room for children to read

3) donate a gently used book to a local library, hospital or shelter or to an organization that distributes used books to children in need internationally.

In addition, we encourage people to support the work of nonprofit organizations (i.e. charities) that work year round to give books to children, such as Room to Read (international), Books for Africa (international), Book Aid International (international), The Book Bus (international), First Book (U.S.), Reading is Fundamental (U.S.), Reach Out and Read (U.S.), Pratham Books (India), Indigenous Literacy Foundation (Australia), The Footpath Library (Australia), Nal’ibali (South Africa) and Duffy Books in Homes (New Zealand).

International Book Giving Day has continued to grow & grow. In 2014, International Book Giving Day was celebrated by people in Australia, Canada, South Africa, France, India, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, the Philippines, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Brazil, Egypt, Poland, Greece, Portugal, Mexico, Macedonia, Malawi, Hungary, Malaysia, Israel, Denmark, Thailand, Indonesia, Jordan, China, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria. We hope that people around the world will think about the best ways to help children in need in their communities.

Thursday Theories

In a new year, something new for you!…Every Thursday, I am going to write a post about some theory. It can be anything, it can be about any kind of “theory”. In 2020, there was so many more things that I learnt. Things that I thought that I already knew. So I would love to write about what I learnt last year, but it’s also made me made me go “You know, I don’t know if that’s true or not”. Then I would do actual research about it.

I am going to focus mainly on myths and fantasy stories, taking a look at how true they were, if there was a actual person or event, that inspired the person or event. I am excited about doing this! I couldn’t think about what I wanted to do and this seems perfect!

And I’m off!

So when you read this, I’ll be driving on the way to my partners parents for Christmas, and an Aunts 60th. They lived pretty close to the outback, and survive on rain water, so bad internet. They do have it, but it’s not good in places and I usually don’t bother.

This just your basic message to say that I have a couple of posts scheduled, but I probably wont be able to reply to anything. I wont be able to read your posts until I can get back either ❤ Keep Blogging on Bloggers!

Now what I am going to take with me to read!
