I don't have time to read right through it today (need to do other things) but it is supported world-wide to educate and reduce child grooming, cyberbullying and harm via online connections.
Have a look and see if any of the resources can help in your workplace or with young people you might know.
"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I get to do abbreviated family this year which is actually really nice and get to meet my big nephew's gf tonight at dinner which will be sweet. Just spent the afternoon with my ma finishing off preparations for tomorrow's luncheon.
Now it's time to get out the sticky tape and play present origami before it's getting ready for dinner time. We are doing the big hotel smorgasboard, so no room for nibbles beforehand as there is a table full of sashimi with my name on it!
If I don't see you until the new year
Have a happy festive time, however it works for you and best wishes for a most wonderful new year that starts with amazing fireworks and continues as you mean to go on with joy and success in all things.
Love and light,
any suggestions for a good computer desktop package to purchase before I go back to the Dell online option?
My PC is slowing more and more so I think it may be time to sort that out soon ...
EDIT: Def Brand name product with warrenty. I am a heavy Office user, net, some graphic, no gaming.
a goodie for sneakers and jeans is Hybrid Sport/Style on George ST near KFC (Town Hall) - 40% off Everything closing down sale.
Cue QVB 30-50% off most everything, lots of stuffs for ladies
DJs shoe floor has heaps better brands than a few years ago starting at 30% off floor stock (most depts have sales too)
looks like it's pre-stocktake for sales this year.
a kid found this site while looking up info and I thought it was interesting
has anyone used it?
is it good and relatively unbiased?
any other suggestions of good search engines and wikis to get kids off Goggle and W'pedia ?
info on Gatz
"Sydney Opera House and Sydney Writers' Festival are delighted to present Gatz, an extraordinary stage version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. A tour de force, with a cast of 13, this is not a reworking of the novel, but a reading of the entire book - brilliantly brought to life by one of New York's most exciting theatre companies, Elevator Repair Service. Don't miss the opportunity to see this truly unique theatrical experience.
Gatz is playing at Sydney Opera House from 15 to 31 May."
it's a two-part show ....
