Mothers Day (Australia)

First, for my overseas readers. DO NOT FREAK OUT! It is only Mothers’ Day in Australia at the moment…Do not worry!

I am getting to spend the day with my Mum, Aunt and Gran seeing the newest exhibition and I am so excited about it!

International Moment of Laughter Day

Since today is Dolphin Day and International Moment of Laughter Day…I thought that I would post a video that is of Dolphins and hopefully will make you laugh!

I do have to admit I am not the biggest fan of the Dolphins being in tanks, I’d rather they be in the ocean, but some of the videos are quiet sweet. I also kind of went swimming with the Dolphins once, it was fantastic! We took a boat out to sea and we had to hang onto a rope (it was VERY tiring) We had snorkels, it was such a weird experience, beautiful, for some reason though, I felt claustrophobic putting my head into the water.

World Wildlife Day

Today is a beautiful and sad day…

Beautiful because what animal isn’t beautiful? I just love talking about them…but sad because so many animals are under threat…

I am sure that most of you have probably heard of the latest news about the Sudan White Rhinos:

The World’s last male northern white Rhino is on death watch – Inside Africa – CNN

If you haven’t let me break it down, the last northern white rhino is dying. Now he is  pretty old for a Rhino. There are still two northern white female rhinos and this does not mean that Rhino’s are extinct altogether. It is sad though in this day and age we don’t have more of the resources to protect these animals. Well we do…Some people aka Government officials, don’t want to do it.

There are so many Myths and Legends when it comes to Rhinos and their horns, which are completely unfounded and are just not true. Rhinos horns are made out of the same stuff that our finger and toe nails are!

I also don’t know how many of you follow Big Cat Rescue...But they are a wonderful organisation and they usually only rescue Lions and Lionesses

(and a helluva lot better than BJWT…Do not support that wacko!)

One of their Kings…King Joseph also passed away today, but at least we can comfort in the fact that he was rescued and lived out a much better life, and did not die alone. Then the life he was living.

Official website of UN World Wildlife Day website

Please look at this website, it has so much information about animals that are under threat and can give you ideas on how to help.

 

Australia Day thoughts

Glenelg was goooooorgeous and not busy on Australia Day, I think because of the heat…I am so happy that I went and took it back =D If you go there please try the frozen yogurt at Fruizberry It’s freaking amazing! It was such a lovely day and I am very glad that I went through and stayed overnight with my partner. It was such a lovely day for us.

“For those who’ve come across the seas, We’ve boundless plains to share”

However, my friend of colours experienced racism…and quiet frankly, Australia…IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

It’s a big reason why I think the date needs to change or we need to make Australia more multi-cultural. I mean it’s the day where immigrants become Australians…These white people’s families were immigrants too once and would need to have applied for Australian Citizenship. It’s all been shocking how little these people who think we should keep the day the same day. Know very little about Australia and it’s History and know very little how long Australia Day has actually been an National Public Holiday.

 

#HolocaustRememberanceDay

#HolocaustRememberanceDay … There were not “fine people” on both side…Just one…The allies…Chuck Schumer is not a “cry baby” for getting choked up for remembering his family who died in those concentration camps…THAT WERE REAL!

Share Your World … August, Week 4

Share Your World

Share Your World … August 28, 2017

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

  • Wake up feeling refreshed AND not waking up not too early and not to late, maybe snuggling in for a little bit.
  • Playing with the pets, even if I have to pick up their toilet business in the process.
  • At some point I’ll be reading and writing something
  • I’ll get to chat with the best people from all over the world while watching safarilive at the same time.
  • There’ll be a long shower in there somewhere.
  • I’ll clean out a lot of things! Not clean up, but clean out some of my “stuff” and get rid of it.
  • Although I might also clean something that’s been bugging me.
  • If it’s around Christmas, I might actually go out Christmas shopping…for a few hours,lol
  • Catch up on favourite shows, I usually do this when I’m eating my lunch.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Where ever the people and animals I love the most are…Lame, but true!

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

I had a couple, I’m not “friends” persay with them anymore. However, one of the brilliant things about Facebook is I’ve been able to find each of them on there. It’s been great! The funny thing is, it’s interesting to see how much we get along with still. I haven’t seen some of these people for over 20 years and yet I could still hang out with them quiet happily and I’m sure that we’d still have a lot of fun. Sure, on Facebook we usually represent ourselves in a positive light and they might be terrible people, but I just don’t think so,lol

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Book Lovers Day

You are probably thinking to yourself right now…Uhh Lolsy…That was last Wednesday…Trust me when I say when I realised what day it was, my heart actually did break a little…What kind of Library doesn’t know about Book Lover’s Day…I can tell you that and Australian one doesn’t At first, my thought was too simply write about it on the Thursday, but then I thought that was too fake and then I realised that I shouldn’t feel guilty about it.

When I did some digging around Australia doesn’t really have a book lovers day. We have book lover things that happen around Valentine’s Day and other book events during the year that so bring importance to reading and that day is called “Library Lovers Day”. I think that’s it’s more of a American Day.

Every day should be Book Lovers Day

“Days” happening this weekend

  • World Elephant Day (12th of August

About – World Elephant Day  

Elephants what can I say about them, the term “gentle giants” come instantly to mind. It breaks my heart every single time I hear about an elephant, young or old, they are sweetest animals ever. They are very much up there with Dogs, when I think about kindness. As much as I love Lions, elephants are on such a rapid decline and they deserve our protection. It’s the least that we can do.

Share Your World .. July Week 2017

Share Your World

Share Your World…July 24, 2017

(I feel like I should explain here why my title say July Week 4 and the link say “July 24th. You see Cee’s Photography posts the Share Your World questions on the Monday, but I tend not to get around to them until The Thursday. I just felt that it would be a little confusing if I posted Mondays date on a Thursday.)

List some of your favorites types of teas.

I love the usual black tea with milk, I usually have that a couple of times a day. The others I’ll have, I usually am not very feeling when I have them. I have just lemon tea, so literally just a cut up lemon, soaking in hot water. The other two teas that I drink when I’m not feeling well. That can be either when I have a cold or a “self-inflicted” type illness. I guess the other tea that I enjoy is “Chai Tea”, I have that maybe once or twice a year. I usually have it when I want to drink something sweet, but I don’t want to be feel unhealthy either.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

I think it would have to be the yellow/amber light on a traffic light. It’s a kind of traffic sign right? I feel like I’m constantly having to slow down, even though I really don’t want too and then have to stop, even though I really don’t want too. I want to keep going, I don’t want to stop, because when I stop I’m not making money,lol. I don’t have the ability to either keep going or just take off.

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

  • Bake me a lasagna!
  • Not pay me out while I hug my plushies =P
  • Not keep talking to me once the ear phones have gone in!

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Wooo, this is a good one. There are quiet a few things I would love to be able to do. I would love to be a Gymnast. They are incredible, they are so athletic and I love the whole jumping and making it look flawless and like it’s no effort.
