  Picture the one person in the world you really wish were reading your blog. Write her or him a letter.     Dear Chief Executive Officer, The WORLD   I am writing to you today to express my concern about the way people on Earth treat each other. When I see the news each night I find it incredibly hard to imagine what it must be like for people in some parts of the […]

“The 1975 Australian constitutional crisis (sometimes called “the Dismissal“) has been described as the greatest political crisis and constitutional crisis in Australia’s history. It culminated on 11 November 1975 with the removal of the Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam  (elected in 1972) of the Australian Labor Party (ALP), by Governor-General Sir John Kerr.

In 2008 we traveled to the United Kingdom – something I had always wanted to do. We visited several counties in Ireland as well. Midway through our journey we stayed at (click on the following link for more information) THORNBURY CASTLE It is located in the Village of Thornbury not far from Bristol.  We stayed at the Castle for 2 or 3 nights. It was an amazing experience. I am very thankful I had the […]

I dream a lot. I always have. Do you have recurring dreams? I do. When I have a recurring dream I do try to understand if there is a message in it for me. Most times I  just let it go and let it sort out my psyche without my interference – unless it increases in intensity and seems to want my attention. For example, a recent dream… “There is this male character in my […]

Daily Post Topic: You have the chance to write one last post on your blog before you stop blogging forever. Write it. This is my last ever blog! I will not have the opportunity to write again since being diagnosed with a serious illness call Bloggerhoea.

WordPress prompt for today – Think of a time you let something slide, only for it to eat away at you later. Tell us how you’d fix it today. Hierarchies rule in Government organisations. I put a lot of work into a document to go up the General Manager for approval. I provided a draft to my line manager and she changed it significantly and sent it up-line to the General Manager. I didn’t see […]

I am guessing a lot of Irish bloggers will love the opportunity to identify with this week’s topic – GREEN. My first thought about the colour green was of a cassette I received for my 4oth birthday from my son. It has the songs of “old Ireland” such as “My Wild Irish Rose”, “Whiskey in the Jar” and many other old favourites. My focus today is on “Forty Shades of Green”. It was originally put […]

WordPress topic – Go back in time to an event you think could have played out differently for you. Let alternate history have its moment: tell us what could, would or should have happened? Earlier this year I worked at a University in a role similar to a research assistant. The job wasn’t all that challenging however my eyes were opened to how my life could have been if I had gone to University following […]

I just read a post called “19 things to stop doing in your 20’s” and it was a really good read! It gave me the idea to leap forward a few decades with some ideas of my own. Here are some of my suggestions… Stop letting your career overtake other important aspects of your life. Stop lying about your age and your weight – it is only what YOU think that matters – accept what […]
