Share Your World – 2015 Week #31

Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?

I would rather take the pictures, than be in them. When I’m feeling pretty though I might take a picture of myself or a “selfie”. No one see’s them, I use to post them on Facebook, but people would pay me out too much (even though plenty of others were doing the exact same thing…Who knows why one can and one can’t). I did actually have an Instagram for a while, but I got bored of it pretty quickly.

Where do you like to vacation?

I LOVE Queensland! The people are gorgeous, the weather is pretty much always lovely 90% of the time. It’s a great place to be, if I ever won the lottery I would definitely buy a holiday house there.

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

Give me coffee and we can be friends =D

List at least five favorite first names.

  1. Lily
  2. Belle
  3. Arthur
  4. Aurora
  5. Morgana

Art is found from within

I was really struggling to find something this week for my “Magical Monday” posting. I always love to make a post on Magical Monday, mainly because I do hope that it cheers people up on Monday mornings.

So after liking 10 pictures on this particular page, I decided to share this page with you all as well! It’s a Facebook page called “Middle Earth’s Art” The drawings on there are amazing! They are beautiful and well drawn. They like to post a picture with an appropriate quote. If I could like every single picture on this page without making everyone on my friends list driven crazy, I probably would like every single one when they are posted.

I believe that these are drawings that JRR Tolkien would proud of himself. If you are stuck on a drawing or are having writers block on a fantasy script, I would strongly recommend looking at these pictures and prepare to be inspired!

(They also have a Twitter…It’s the same pictures being posted on Facebook, but on Twitter…https://www.facebook.com/MiddleArtPage?fref=nf )

Dye to save the animals!

I think that if you are a regular reader of mine you will know that I am such a big support of saving endangered animals, literally any kind, even bees…and they can kill me! I strongly believe that any type of animals belongs to be here safely just as much as we do. I believe that human beings do not “own” the Earth.

There is a Facebook page that relates to the Safari Live web feed that I watch called “Djuma Djunkies” and I came across a post on the Facebook page of “The Amazing Wild Nature” This page has some amazingly inspirational stories about animals and saving them, there was one post in particular that caught my eye.

If you don’t wish to read the article I will break it down here. What they have come up with is this, a particular pink dye that they use on bank notes is now being put onto the husks and tucks of endangered animals, such as rhinoceroses and elephants. This makes the ivory on these animals completely wrecked and unusable, the dye also doesn’t harm the animals in any way. According to some of the comments it doesn’t always mean that the poachers will not shoot them, but I still think that it’s a better idea than none!.

 

Daddy Dash is back!

For those who are regular readers you may remember my slight obsession with Daddy Dash and his baby ostriches. Over the last couple of years I have been watching Dash raise baby ostriches all from Ustream from a live web feed.

There has been a lot of sadness, baby ostriches have a high mortality rate, which is why in the wild they lay so many eggs. So if you only have 5 eggs the chances of them all surviving are extremely rare. So after the last batch of babies and having only one survive I honestly wasn’t sure if Daddy Dash (as we call him) would ever do it again…But he is!

Over the years we have 3 groups of baby ostriches and grow and die.

This year we have a batch of 5 eggs and this will be the fourth attempt. Please join us on the 25th of July as this expected date of the new hatchlings! Until then watch them live on Ustream!

1000 Speak for Connection!

In the past I have Blogged a couple of posts regarding a Facebook page called 1000 Voices for Compassion and on the 20th of each month there is a challenge and people write Blog topic based on the topic for that month. In the month of the May the topics “Connection” including reconnection and reconciliation.

So I will literally just write down whatever came to mind when I thought of the word “Connection”.

Connection Prompts For our May Link-up

I think that is a really interesting topic because I find that as a general society rule we are less connected than ever before.  Yet we have all these tools to help us communicate well and efficiently and yet as I have said before we have more of a society that wants to be “right” instead of discussing and talking with one another. You watch people (especially with Twitter) who bully and send death threats to people that they don’t even know. When did this become okay? Why has this become such a problem? How can someone be so disconnected that threatening and telling people that should “go and kill” themselves, became acceptable?

I have watched many “fights” on Facebook. You have many people who will literally write “who cares”. How poignant is that?! Clearly not them (that is a whole other topic though on people who want to write “who cares” and “this isn’t news” instead of scrolling past the topic). I have asked people on Facebook directly why they felt the need to write that statement, why didn’t they just scroll past and get on with their day. Why do they think what they like is so much more and better than other? Yet, when people ask them, they get really upset?

Have we lost the connection with what is really important, how can we get it back, whose to blame, is there one area to blame or is it just everything these days? Have we lost the connection with the earth, the planet, our basic simple ways. Have we become to diverse to be able to really handle and accept the differences in others? Are we not ready to CONNECT with the other different souls on this planet? Is it too much for us to handle right now.

I believe that it is time to reconnect with and within ourselves. Go back to the basics and take a long look at what we are doing and what kind of legacy and story do we want to leave behind. I believe that we need to reconnecting with ourselves every know and then, to take a hard look at ourselves and asked ourselves “What is important to us”. Do these people really want to leave the story behind of them threatening and telling people to die behind the cowardice of a screen?

Take that walk back in a nature, kick up the leaves during autumn. Mediate…Listen to what our souls are telling us to do, telling us the path that we should take. Shut out the world of the technology. and connect with our spirits again. I think that we need to reconnect within ourselves again.

I love to Blog

After a weekend pretty much away from Facebook, I came back too all the drama and passive aggressiveness, and the hypocritical crud too…

Sigh Facebook, when will people learn! When will people learn! I’m getting tired of the bullshit…I literally had one “friend” who I am constantly having to put up with because she’s my best friends other best friend. She’s does the ODDEST things. I try to get over it all the time and just when I think that I am, she does something else.

I think that I’m just sticking with my Blogging and Safari Drive for a while.

PassiveAggressive

 

Facebook Official!

So it has been…Since I don’t know when I posted something under this topic. What happened (if you are a fairly new readers) I started a category on here, talking about being single in a small city (a clever take I thought on a famous television show with a similar title). I had set-up a dating site, was dating, all sorts of things.

I was determined to start looking at dating in a whole new light.

Then, I am not even joking, within probably a fortnight of starting the new category. I met someone and now we are all “Facebook Official”. I have learnt that you are not “official” until you are official Facebook. We’ve even said that the big “L” word.

HOWEVER, I do pretty much have 31 years of being single behind me. I have dated the worst, the best and the…well I don’t know what to call them really…behind me. So I will continue to use this category, just more about advice and things I’ve learnt about dating over the years.

For my piece of advice I am going to repost a post of mine, because this an important one! What we leave behind

When you are single you need to be able to have something “fun” and when you have someone in your life, doesn’t matter if it’s a boyfriend or a “lover” (I always say that word funnily). Do not let someone like this determine how good you’re getting it ~.^

Facebook Official

It’s not all Disney

Sometimes it’s also Pixar, Dreamworks and Fox Animation…etc…You get my point ~.^

I found this fantastic Blog on a Facebook page (Check out George Takei’s Facebook page!)

In all honestly I wasn’t even aware that some of these classic childhood movies were not Disney movies at all! I didn’t even have to play the YouTube videos to remember some of these films.

13 Non-Disney animated movies of the 80s-90s that are secretly the best!

Just the thumbnail of “The Land Before Time” was enough to get me “misted-eyed”.

Facebook? The new mortifying diary?

Last night my Mum and I were talking about how we both have had diaries from our younger years and how mortified we were by what we had written in there. My mother was so ashamed by one of her diaries that she actually burnt it.

Which then brought us to talk about all these people who post these posts on Facebook. In ten years time will they look back at those posts like we “older” people look back at our diaries and cringe, except there is a huge glaring difference…Facebook is public.For example, there is this girl who is ALWAYS talking about how she’s better than her boyfriends ex and calling her all sorts of names. In a recent post she’s talking about she got into a fight with her boyfriends ex and writes about how this girl needs to stop being weak and get up and fight?

How is she proud enough of this? Then her next status is about how everyone should stay out of her business, because of course we don’t know what she’s dealing with. If she wants people to stay out of her business, why write a PUBLIC post? It’s also amazing how many times her and her boyfriend also just always seem to bump into their exs. That is just one of the many MANY example I can think of posts that make myself cringe.I know most of these people wont understand for years (if ever) how others must be viewing this.

A lot of these problems are also down to their friends though. A lot of this girls friends are calling this girl boyfriends ex a “whore” because she’s contacting this girls boyfriends and saying she misses him. My first question was “Why does she feel comfortable enough to text him that?”. If he REALLY didn’t want her contacting him, he can definitely take steps to stop this from happening. They don’t have a kid together or anything. Stupid girls, this guy must be in HEAVEN!lol
