Questions:

Do guns protect people or kill people?  Or both?

Guns kill. Too me, that’s the whole function of a gun. It’s there to kill, whether it’s because you’re hunting an animal, or shooting at an intruder. The point of a gun is too kill. Even if you’re shooting at an intruder to protect your family, and you shoot and they die. They still died. The gun didn’t talk to the intruder to put it on a better path. They’re dead…Stone cold dead. You may shoot at someone to protect your family, but that gun that you are shooting at another human being with, can still kill them. That’s what they’re for…To kill.

Is it more important to be respected or liked?

Respected.

Is having a big ego a negative or  positive trait?  (yeah I know.  Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)

Sometimes it could be a positive trait, a big ego, you think you’re unstoppable. I do think there’s a difference between a huge ego and a narcissistic personality disorder though. I think there’s actually nothing wrong with a big ego, as long as you’re not harming others with it,lol

Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning? 

I love the movie “The Mummy” and one of the quotes in there is when Imhotep says “Death in only the beginning”. I think it is, to an extent. I do think that there are such things as Guardian Angels, Angels, rebirth. I do believe that we come here to learn lessons, and then far later on we are reborn as someone else. That’s why I believe in soul mates. I believe that we meet certain people, in each life.

It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have.   Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing.   So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please!  Do share!  Thanks!   🙂

In a sci-fi twist, Tasmanian tigers could actually be coming back from extinction

Over 80 years ago the Tasmanian Tiger became extinct. Now it seems like they have found a new cloning technique that may bring the animal back

Can I borrow a feeling?

Homer Simpson GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Well I clearly and blatantly ripped that title off =P I started to write this post while having a drinky drinky night with a friend and how certain songs just bring out an emotion in us and no matter where you are, or how you are feeling, at the sound of that first note, you will instantly be triggered.

Below I have created a list of certain situations, that probably we’ve all found ourselves in at some point, but these are the songs that just trigger that emotion for me. The links are all to YouTube

  • Any ex partner:

Within Temptation: Angels

  • Those who are in my heart and have passed: (especially for my Great GrandFather)

Wishing you were somewhere again – Phantom of the Opera

  • That day I become stronger than what my ex partners did:

Titanium – David Guetta (Madilyn Bailey version)

  • The ex partner that is messed up on in the inside, so you can’t hate them:

Better Than Me – Hinder

  • When I first start falling in love … Nawwwwwwwww

Your Guardian Angel – Red Jumpsuit Apparatus … Sometimes I sing this to my pets,lol

  • The song I can’t even listen to when my heart breaks:

I can’t break it to my heart – Delta Goodrem

  • When I start to heal again:

Dancing with a Broken Heart – Delta Goodrem 

  • When I’m feeling “sexy”: 

Get Sexy – Sugababes  … I will strut,lol

  • Me…Right Now

Enough  – Delta Goodrem ft Gizzle

Share Your World … Week 22

Share Your World

Share Your World … Week 22

  1. Every country in the world has lost men and women in some kind of Armed Forces.  When does your country celebrate or morn their deaths? (Optional)
    I live in the Country Down Under and we have two days here. The major one is on the 25th of April, every year. It’s called ANZAC Day, ‘ANZAC’ stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It’s celebrated on this day as on the morning of 25 April 1915, the Anzacs set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The other is November 11th (I think that this is celebrated a lot though). 11:11am we take a one minute silence…Remembrance Day.
  1. What is your favorite holiday or holidays?
    I am a Christmas girl all the way. The feeling of the season just brings out my happy side. I spend all year getting little bits here and there all year. It’s amazing what you can save when you put a little away each week/fortnight.
  2. How do you celebrate that holiday?
    Another reason that I love the season is that it brings everyone out and brings the whole family together. We have a very traditional Christmas, same traditions every year. Ones that have been in our families for years.

Tolkien Reading Day

I just found out that not only is it Good Friday, but every 25th of March is http://www.tolkiensociety.org/events/tolkien-reading-day-2016/ and according to the “The Tolkien Society” there is a theme every year, and this years theme is “Life, Death and Immortality”

So what will you be reading today? Also excuse me for a looking a little “Witchy” (also I apologise for the URL link stuff up, I’m not sure what’s happening there).

Live Safari Update!

As you all know I am a MASSIVE fan of the Safari Live hosted by Nat Geo, Wild Earth and Ustream. I realised though I haven’t posted for a long time about the drives. One of the major reasons this is because there has been great upheaval in the land of Djuma, Arthusa Safari Lodge and the Sabi Sands Wildtuin!

Mainly with the new collation of young male adults called the Birmingham Boys, or as there new nickname is “The Bad Boys”. There are five of them, there were 6, but one was killed but other male Lions. They’ve gotten there nickname as they’ve killed two cubs, leaving one alive, because Mama Lioness was only able to save the one. They’ve killed about five lionesses (I’ll double check that, it’s 4 or 5). So far there are has been little interaction between these boys and the Matimba males, other than calling and vocalising.

The Bad Boys

(The Birmingham Boys aka “The Bad Boys” or “The BBoys”)

Matimba Males

(The Matimba Males: Hairy Belly and Ginger)

The whole situation is really depressing and really interesting at the same time. I’ve only ever heard of new males killing cubs, which I can understand completely. The whole BBoys killing the Lionesses is something completely new to me and even some of our guides seem perplexed by the situation, because they are just killing so many of them.  There is one thought that maybe the Lionesses are resisting the BBoy’s and because they are young and full of testosterone. They came in aggressive, so it’s gets all aggressive type thing.

Just for another interesting twist in the story as well, two other Male lions, who are unidentified, have now also appeared on the scene. Possibly the other two Matimba males from further up North?

RIP Phil Walsh

Today I was woken up in shock as I learnt the sad news that AFL Crows coach Phil Walsh had died and had been stabbed to death. The most shocking part of it all was that the perpetrator was his own son.

Well…maybe it’s not that shocking, after all around about 90% of violence and murders are by people that the person knows and these people are usually family members.

I am a big footy fan and the Crows are my team and although there are numerous statistics proving that this happens all the time, I think this is honestly the first time that I have ever heard of such a well known Coach or sports-person (in Australia) being stabbed or killed.

World Book Night! (23rd April 2015)

As you can see by the title tomorrow night is World Book Night. It is held on the 23rd of April and is there to celebrate William Shakespeare birth and death.

The reason I am posting about it now is press the link and you can see where the places where they are holding events tomorrow night…World Book Night – Events…You can also check out the numerous Facebook pages, by just typing in “World Book Night” into the Facebook search bar.

I am so completely envious as this event seems to be only held in the UK and the USA, I would love to have something like this down under!

Leaving Time

Generally I don’t actually like writing reviews and such, mainly because I think with my dyslexia I can’t always think of the right words to write and use to make it sound like I know what I’m talking about. I love to read and I am always reading a book, sometimes it’ll take me a week, sometimes it can take me a month or so. I’m usually a fast reader, but I just have to find the time to read.

However, saying that, I just LOVE all of Jodi Picoult books, I have read all of them now am eagerly anticipating her next novel.

At the moment though I have just finished reading Leaving Time. Leaving Time is about the young daughter of Alice Metcalf searching for her missing mother, an accomplished researcher into how elephants grieve and mourn. With the help of both a psychic and a retired police officer, this books takes the most interesting twists and turns. It also looks into how Elephants feel and they grieve and mourn.

It’s what I love most about Jodi Picoult books, there is always a twist that you just do not seem coming, and this one had one of the biggest twists of all! I literally looked up and went “Huh” read on and was happy to discover that I did not see it coming.
