Live a simple, uncluttered and productive existence.

To simplify your life today, consider selling your television, stopping the junk mail, spending less, learning yoga, selling your car, practising meditation every morning and unplugging your ringing phone once in a while.

If you have not laughed today, you have not lived today.

Laugh hard and loud.
As William James said: “we don’t laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh.”

As William James said: “we don’t laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh.”

Travel often.

The perspective offered by visiting new lands is important and allows one to appreciate the existence that we generally take for granted.

Each month set a physical fitness goal for yourself.

Start to swim in July or learn to ski in January.

The key is to arrive at a goal for the month, write it down, consider how to execute it and then, as the NIKE ad says: “Just Do It!”.

Things are always created twice. There is always the mental creation which precedes the physical creation.

Just as plans for a house must first be set down on paper before the house is started, so too should your day be planned within your mind early in the morning before the day begins.

Visualize the wonders you desire this life to bring and they will materialize as your subconscious mind starts to focus on the attainment of goals. This is a true law of Nature.

WALK to work in the wonderful beauty in Nature.

Sleep less, spend less, do more, live longer and be greater.

Kindness is a many splendid thing, be grateful for the roof over your head.

Give out GRATITUDE for their acceptance of you

MANNERS is your responsibility




“SHIPS AHOY!” a poem October 29, 2018! Mo(o)nday!

Night doth “fall!” (Life is OVER!)

No more joy! No more “clover!”

No more walks – with you-in-The-Sun;

No more kisses!? No more fun!

Just a black and endless mock,

Of what was promised – by the clock!

Life is dreary – purpose – less;

Everything!-is – a big mess!

Gone to bed! I must be dead;

There are no “sugarplums” in my head!

BUT! WAIT! What’s THIS? The Morning Light:

Things are SUDDENLY! gay and bright;

The birds do sing; creat-ures rejoice:


Declaring: “You-goofy – silly-human-boy!”


Ships ahoy! 🙂 – Yay!

“NEW LIFE NEW HOPE NEW WORDS!” a poem of refine-ation! October 29, 2018 – Moon Day

Our Jack* has REALLY been through “stuff,

And Life may NEVER say: “Enough!!”

The Net Effect? Well, who can tell!?

After folks have been through Hell!

Jack did-visit-(Hell) for a season;

Who can really give a reason,

But, let’s assume “a noble spin,”

And that, perhaps, our Jack can win!

Some-folks see Jack as really “scarred,”

Marked for life – and scars are hard!

Yet, maybe “scarred” could be replaced:

“REFINED!” suggests that he’s been graced!


That – once burned down, we STILL CAN BLOOM!! 🙂

fin <3

“WORDS!”** a poem of refine-ation 2!

Quite out-of-the-blue (has this happened to you?)

“You’ve been SCARRED!” said to me;

Damaged goods? Let me see:

“No! Refined is*** my state!!

And our love – It is GREAT!”

Words can build – or tear down;

Create HAPPY – or-a-frown!!

They’ll-help-kids, IF well chosen,

Or – install – [too bad!] “Frozen!”

As I’ve said (too)-oft’-before:


And-ADJECTIVES are the key,

For they-label – easily!

We have many to choose,

So we surely won’t lose!

I-prefer-a-flavor that’s fine,

One on which we might dine!

Not too spicy or bland –

CAREFUL! (with) WORDS! Understand? fin. <3 <3

* – substitute any name you might like here! For instance: just The Letter J!!

** – of Life or Death!!

*** – could be!! 🙂

Jason Mizner will serve no more than 19 years behind bars for 65 child sexual assault charges including 30 rape charges, one against a 2 year old girl !

Jason Mizner will serve no more than 19 years behind bars for 65 child sexual assault charges including 30 rape charges, one against a 2 year old girl !

Queensland child rapist Jason Daron Mizner will spend at least the next 15 years behind bars for grooming and sexually abusing a two-year-old girl, as well as filming the assaults. Mizner pleaded guilty to 65 child sex offences including more than 30 counts of rape and videotaping the assaults.

The 44-year-old formed a relationship with the girl’s mother, before committing the offences over a number of months. While he was on a holiday in Thailand, the girl’s mother found videos he had made and a range of other unrelated child exploitation material.

Mizner stayed in Thailand, where he formed a relationship with a local woman before assaulting her young daughter and being arrested by Thai authorities. He served 11 years of a 35-year sentence and was deported when released on bail last year, with Australian authorities arresting him when he returned to Brisbane.

In sentencing Mizner on Friday, District Court Judge Leanne Clare said the time in the Thai jail could be taken into account, sentencing him to 19 years in an Australian prison – for a total of 26 years in custody across the two countries.

The sentencing was delayed on Tuesday after the judge viewed some of the footage of the rapes, which she said were shocking and required her to put some time between viewing them and passing judgment so not to cloud the sentence.

On Friday, she said there was no evidence Mizner had remorse for what he had done. “It was (the girl’s mother) who found the recordings. That content would be excruciating for most people,” she said

“I only watched a portion and it has been a battle to get the vision of your offending out of my head.

“I cannot imagine the horror of it for (the girl’s) mother.”
Mizner must serve at least 15 years of his 19-year sentence, making him eligible for parole in 2031.

What happens in 2031 when this vile thing gets out ? Seriously who protects our children then ?

Jason Mizner is an unrepentant, unrelenting predator ! He has repeatedly raped toddlers in two different countries, he simply MUST be locked up for the rest of his natural life because the fact is he can NEVER be trusted near children again.

Looking for Ned: Life versus Legend – A Guide to Australian Bushranging

Many people have a very clear image in their head of Ned Kelly: tall, muscular, bushy beard and pompadour hairstyle. This image is Ned Kelly a day before his execution, almost six months after he was nearly shot to pieces at Glenrowan. So, if this is Ned at the end of his life how close…
