QUESTIONS:

Where do you get your news?

Too be honest, it’s usually when I either sign into my emails or sometimes when I head onto Twitter. My email is yahoo, so I get a whole Australian online news channel before I sign in. However, if I see something I wont comment on it until I’ve actually read through. Especially in this climate, when you have “BREAKING NEWS” you need time to actually digest it, find out what’s what, for example, Jussie Smollet >.<

What ‘old person’ thing do you do?

Oh, everything I do is what “old people” do. My mum pays me out all the time because of my “old personess”. I have to my cups of tea at certain times. Whenever I travel in a car, I put my handbag on my lap, like my Nanna used to do.

When was the coldest you’ve ever been?   The warmest?

The coldest I have ever been, was during Winter and for some reason my partner and I were both sweating through the night. So he wanted the fans on, I was already cold and wearing a tonne of layers, but he still put the fan on. I woke up roughly 5amish and had to run into the shower and have a really hot shower, I just could not stop shivering. My partner sheepishly put his head around and said “Sorry”. It wasn’t just the cold, I also get massive anxiety if I’m woken up, unexpectedly during the night. Ever since I woke up with a massive anxiety attack and couldn’t breathe and I still don’t know what set me off.

The warmest I’ve ever been was probably during a Spring, but I don’t know if that’s because it’s just in your mind? If that makes sense? You go from Winter to Spring, so any sun feels really warm.

Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine?

Yeah I will. I grew up with the mindset not to waste food. I cannot stand wasting food, and yet my partner is REALLY bad at it. As soon as it hit “midnight” on a best before date, he wont eat/drink it. However, that’s fine, but he also does not throw it out.

Finally:

Gratitude (not mandatory to participate in)

If you’d like to, please share some gratitude from your life.   

Today I am just grateful to be here, with the lose of such a legend ie Terry Jones. I am watching Monty Python tonight. What a genius to have lost!

In this day and age

  • There is no excuse to not talk to someone. We have more ways of communicating than ever before. (This clearly does not apply to people who are mentally finding it tough to reach out. This more towards people who don’t want to know the truth, and gossipers).
  • There is no excuse to not find out information BEFORE you make comments on something.  There are so many ways to research something, anything.
  • When someone does reach out, there really is no excuse to keep lying.

#StopBlamingWomenMakeMenTheIssue: Nicole Cartwright Update — Things Carla Loves

— Trigger Warning — Last year, I read an article by Jane Gilmore, discussing that there was no national outrage or outcry, and little had been said in the media, about the fact that just the other week in Australia, six women were murdered in five days. Yes. Six women were murdered in five days. As nothing has changed, […]

I or i?

A colleague of mine and I were sitting around during a quiet time and just talking about how we don’t actually know what the I or i, stand for in the products. We then went and looked up what each i or I stands for.

iPhone – I = Internet.

Icentral – I = Information (TAFE)

IT – I = Information (Technology)

iOS – I = iPhone (Operating System)

iPod – I = Internet (Pod)

iPad – I = (Internet Pad)

Wi-Fi – I = Nothing…It is not a word or an acronym. It stands by itself.

I bet you all really wanted to know that one!

“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.

Happy Hot Cross Bun Day and long weekend to some

Just a quick little message, in the past I usually write a whole blog post about hot cross bun day and all the different religions and tradition behind it. This year though, I just wanted to keep it light. I’m going to keep it light by asking:

What is your favourite Hot Cross Bun flavour? Is it (I can’t find polls!)

Plain

Sultana/Currant

Fruit/Fruit Peel

Chocolate Chip

Other…

Please discuss in the comments!

Find some yummy recipes to make your own hot cross buns at Taste.com (Also if anyone could tell me where I can find polls, that would be great!)

Cool news is always welcomed here!

So I had two pieces of really most excellent news…Oh yeah, I went there…I said “excellent”…Well one is “news” that I received and the other is something I cannot believe that I’ve forgotten to mention!

The first piece of good news is, there is a society in Australia called “Guide Dogs Australia” which to be honest I thought they only helped raised dogs for the blind. I sponsor one of their dogs from the Guide Dogs and you get updates, quarterly during the year. I received my most recent update and my dog is going to be a Autism Assistance dog (which I am extremely proud of). I have a lot of people in my life whose children suffer from Autism, so this was something that I was excited to share with them.

The other piece of news (that I cannot believe I forgot to share) is that my cousin is on Australia’s “Great Australian Bake Off”. I am so proud of him! It’s quiet funny really, the ladies in my family we’re not huge cookers, but all the guys are so creative and good at cooking. It is really funny watching a family member on television and not being able to breathe when something goes wrong for them. They’ve only had two shows so far, but he is still on there! =D

Tax Time!

Here in Australia we are coming to a very important time of year…Tax Time!

(Here is the website to the ATO’s website…very important information to read…https://www.ato.gov.au/Tax-professionals/Prepare-and-lodge/Tax-Time-2015/)

So from today until the 31st of October it’s time to put in and lodge your Tax forms Australians!

Wild Earth Safari

Since the beginning of October I have been watching a web cab feed called “Wild Earth Safari” and in Australia they run from 2:30pm-5:30pm and 12:30am to 3:30am. The web cam feed runs until January the 31st (although I, and many others, have asked, if there is any possibility of them running longer than that).

These feeds are taken from the game reserves of Djuma Game Reserve and Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. You can all sorts of animal Lions, Leopards, Hippos, Ellies and Impala…Oh My!

They have experienced rangers and guides that drive around and along the way for the couple of hours they are with you. They will inform, and educate on a wide range of the flora and fauna of the animals and plants within their game reserves. They are incredibly good teachers and even when you see the true side of nature and the wild. They remind of you of “This is nature”.

I suggest you go and have a look at Wild Earth Safari and I’ll see you on the drive!
