Hallo all! Hope Friday 13th was uneventful (we still have 7 hours to go here).
Here's to a good new week for everyone.
Thanks, Annette. Enjoy your time with your friend!
Thanks ANNETTE. We continue watch the events in your land, wondering what next..
LINDA – the χmas pageant was timed to be TV’ed 7-9 pm. I found it disappointing. It started with messages from sponsors & back-patting waffle, a pop-concert song & dance, before the floats paraded around the oval with masses of girls dancing in the centre. I guessed the girls were there to entertain the dads rather than the kids (some moves a bit risque). Not a good view of the floats, camera too far away and too quick to return to the dancers, not to mention long views of the commentators waffling. I decided the event was a combination of the usual street parade and carols by candlelight. Some of the kids in the stands looked far too young to know what was happening. I hope Dau taped it and can fast forward over the boring bits. PS. I saw my first χmas pageant as a Uni student.
Nasty day, high fire danger. My car was washed as I left church, just a sudden “tropical” splash. Later thunder. Cool change expected late pm.
I like failure because it is so easy to achieve.
Why do we grieve failures longer than we celebrate wins? (Komal Kapoor)
Whenever you feel like a failure, just remember that even Coca Cola only sold 25 bottles their first year.
