1. I am currently reading and enjoying two books...
'THINK AND GROW RICH' (the orignal classic)
by Napoleon Hill first published in 1937
'Children are people too' by Dr Louise Porter
2. I once shared a very large house with an American actor by the name of Harvey Keitel.
I don't even know if he knew I was there.
3. I'm not much of a morning person, but on the rare occasion when I have been awake to see the sunrise I've appreciated it. To watch the sun pop up what appears to be out of the ocean, when living on the east coast, was truely magical.
4. I've been positively influenced by Masaru Emoto's beliefs about water. I have gained a renewed respect for this life sustaining substance from reading and listening to Emoto's views.
Whether you agree with him or not you can't deny the value of water.
Masaru Emoto peace project for all the children on earth.
5. I believe that you need to Be Love to Know Love
6. I'm very grateful for the privilege of being able to blog :)
I would like to invite the following people/bloggers to share six things about themselves that we may not already know...

There's something quite strange about suburban life from my point of view.
When I step out onto the street the above view is one that I see.
I can see this from our living room windows too.
It always makes me feel good.
That kind of feel good that only nature can give.
Come for a walk...
It's a lovely time of year to visit the bush as the sun is warm and the grasses are green.
You can rest here and enjoy all the beauty of the surrounds...
that includes ants...
they often reside on these log benches and are very quick to greet you. They don't bite, well not often, but they're not welcome company.
beautiful busy pink and grey galahs...

The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound; a sound like no other that he has ever heard. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, We can't tell you because you're not a monk.
The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery.
The monks again accept him, feed him, and even fix his car..
That night, he hears the same strange mesmerizing sound that he had heard years earlier.
The next morning, he asks what the sound was, but the monks reply,
We can't tell you because you're not a monk.
The man says, all right, all right. I'm dying to know.
If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?
The monks reply, you must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a monk.
The man sets about his task. Some forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, I have traveled the earth and devoted my life to the task demanded and have found what you had asked for. There are 371,145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.
The monks reply, congratulations, you are correct, and you are now considered a monk .
We shall now show you the way to the sound.
The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, the sound is behind that door.
The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He asks, May I have the key ?
The monks give him the key, and he opens the door..
Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone.... The man requests the key to the stone door..
The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one made of sapphire. And so it went on until the man had gone through doors of emerald,..
..silver, topaz, and amethyst
Finally, the monks say, This is the key to the last door .
The man is relieved to be at the end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is astonished to find the source of that strange sound. It is truly an amazing and unbelievable sight
But I can't tell you what it is because you're not a monk.
DON'T SWEAR AT ME;
I'M STILL HUNTING FOR THE IDIOT WHO STARTED THIS !
best wishes, hope I made you smile...
PS.. I'm in the middle of packing up our home. We're on the move and therefore I haven't been to visit you as often as I would like. Forgive me and I'll see you again soon.
