Quote of the Day.'The advice of Jonathan Alpert, a Manhattan-based psychotherapist. "If you view travel as an adventure and a challenge -- including the long lines and delays -- then it can be fun," he says. His advice is to build in enough time to experience this adventure -- a cushion of time, "just in case there are delays." Avoid tight schedules and deadlines. After all, you're on vacation.

    Reading Blogs
    Wednesday, August 27, 2008
    As you know not all blogs are created equal....and not all blogs have a reader subscription icon, so what I want to know is how you keep them orderly on your
    computer.I know I am way behind in my blogroll, but that is about to be fixed.
    I have a folder in my favourites: 'All Blogs' this has subfolders: Blogs, Top 10 Blogs, Romantic blog, cottage blogs, aussie blogs and when I am wandering through cyber fields of blogs I just tab them in. But my goodness, it's getting way out of control. Sure I have my favourites, but there are so many inspirational blogs, and more blogs arriving everyday.
    There are folders for the people in the writing group I'm in, the RTB Group, the digital scrappers I have come to know, best friends....how do you keep up?
    or did you give up?

    Colour 3rd times a charm
    Tuesday, August 19, 2008

    Actually, the first two viewings were great also. I thought the fun might have worn off for tonights 6:30pm session of Mamma Mia. With a 3rd friend. But it was great,
    fun and laughter and at a price that can't be beaten. After changing seats 3 times, well you see I made the 1st choice, then I wanted to sit on the other side
    of the aisle so I could stretch my aching left leg out into the empty space. Then
    I discovered that the arm rest of the middle seats lifted up. I moved back to where we had been,
    only I sat 2 seats in and managed to support my knee
    on the seat next to me...we settled down to a great couple of hours entertainment. I was
    surprised at the number of people who walked out as soon as the film ended, thus missing the great and hilarious performances at the very end.
    Dont leave....stay through the 2 songs..the 2nd is so funny! You will never
    look at Pierce Brosnan or Colin Firth the same again

    The Quilter (mother of TNG's 1, 2, 4 & 5 )
    and I shared a BLAT (bacon lettuce avacado & tomatoe) sandwich
    with fries.

    I had peppermint tea.
    The place was great, with colouring books and toys.
    Amazingly friendly and helpful staff.

    The food was yummy.


    This creative tower of chicken nuggets and chips was for TNG 1 & 2.

    Colour Me resigned
    Thursday, August 14, 2008
    I thought for sure there would be a school teacher or 2, a diligent daughter (ooo she is away camping) or other erudite folk who would pick up my spelling errors in the Colour Me 8 post...

    and yes 1 so far! Person, not error.

    I apologise for offfending your reading serenity. What can I say? I was going too fast and I was in a whole lot of pain, and axomatically multi-tasking.

    Miss A (I was born to fly/travel) needed an intense reworking of her resume; I was delighted to help out, and some web advice. The Whizz Kid came through and she has a great site now, strickly (haha gotcha!!) for work.

    So now I am inspired and will be designing, arranging and choosing the elements for my website.
    Kind of like building a house (A_M) except it doesn't matter if it rains.

    I am bed bound with my old ballet injury creating havoc, hobbling round the house using mum's walking stick, which I just bought back from Melbourne - good timing.

    Thanks to the friendly helpful staff.



    minimax was pure delight
    The large white milk jug I bought travelled well and arrived unharmed.
    The secret seems to be to stuff your sox etc into whatever china ware
    you are packing in your suitcase. Then pack above and below and around with soft clothes, several layers.

    Colour Me Marketing Part 2
    I had been asked to bring hot jam donuts home
    for the monthly family dinner.



    The Donut lady was great.
    When I explained I had to fly 2 hours north with these things

    she carefully explained how to reheat them.
    She also told me where they could be bought 'raw' up here.
    She is used to bulk orders and donuts to travel.

    *after all this trouble and effort and the associated excitement awaiting the donuts....
    'they' declared these were the wrong ones.
    I resign. I am no longer the interstate food courier.

    ...mans best friend came in many shapes and sizes at the market.
    I mean as visitors not being sold
    These 2 are brother and sister...um Oscar & ? ...no not Lucinda?
    sorry can't recall

    and gluten free products

    WHAT HAPPENED TO GLOBAL WARMING?

    Big chill in southeast (Qld)set to continue

    The mercury plunged to minus 5C at Warwick while Coolangatta recorded its lowest minimum temperature in more than four decades – 1C.

    Even the normally balmy Hervey Bay could manage only the same overnight low as chilly Toowoomba – zero degrees – while centres including Stanthorpe, Dalby, Oakey, Maryborough and Gympie were all below freezing.

    At Brisbane Airport, early morning travellers and workers shivered through 2.6C temperatures.

    The city, where the temperature

    Weather bureau senior forecaster Vikash Prasad said snow probably would have fallen on the Darling Downs had the air not been so dry.

    "The minimum temperatures in some areas were certainly close to record lows," he said.

    "Coolangatta's 1C minimum was the coldest since 1964 when the airport recorded 0.4C.

    reached a minimum of 4.1C just after 6.30am, wasn't much warmer.

    Jones wins breaststroke gold, record

    AAP - August 12, 2008, 1:11 pm

    Leisel Jones claimed a long overdue first individual Olympic gold medal in the 100m breaststroke in Beijing.

    The Australian claimed redemption from her heartbreaking campaign in Athens four years ago by blitzing the field at the Water Cube.

    Jones clocked an Olympic record of one minute 5.17 seconds to win by more than a second and a half from American Rebecca Soni (1:06.73) and Austrian Mirna Jukic (1:07.34).

    Jones has taken a stranglehold in women's breaststroke since the Athens Games and thoroughly deserved her momentous victory.

    It was Australia's third gold medal in the pool this week and Jones's sixth Olympic medal overall. more
