    Measuring Motherhood 

    Saw this on another blog and have reposted here without permission.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  And as our parish priest said, “Happy Mother’s Day to Mothers, Grandmothers and dearly departed Mothers, who no doubt still watch over us.”

    NOTE: The best way I know to honor motherhood is by honoring my own mother. This is a celebration of her life and the impact she has had on my family. This is not meant to act as a comparison to other mothers.

    Of course this silly tribute doesn’t scratch the surface of the work she does. The greatest thing she did was teach her children honesty, character, benevolence, and virtue. Thank you Mom!

    Visions of Vienna: a musical tribute to Vienna – the world’ s music capital. Presented by: Sydney Symphony 

    We watched this stunning performance from the comfort of our lounge chairs. Make sure you have a good cuppa or your favourite drink and be prepared to be amazed for the next hour and twenty minutes.

    We are amazed that this is presented on the sails of the Sydney Opera House. As we said in sharing someplace else, it is the meeting of technology and culture – or is it culture and technology.

    In any case, we please invite you to –

    VISIONS OF VIENNA

    04 FEBRUARY 2015

    Venue: Sydney Opera House Sails
    Presented by: Sydney Symphony

    Visions of Vienna: a musical tribute to Vienna – the world’ s music capital.
    Wednesday, February 4 from 8:30pm

    DESCRIPTION

    Join Sydney-siders and audiences across the world this Wednesday, February 4 as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra is projected for the first time live in concert onto the sails of the Sydney Opera House in a grand salute to Vienna, the world capital of music.

    Visions of Vienna is a multi-media event set to celebrate the importance of music to both cities – Vienna and Sydney – while presenting Vienna’s rich culture of acoustic and visual art.

    The live concert commences from 8:30pm and will also be available online to live-stream from 8:50pm AEST.

    Where to watch the free live concert

    • Sydney Opera House: we will be streaming the concert music at our outdoor venues for visitors to enjoy alongside the projections on the sails. We recommend Opera Bar, Opera Kitchen and The House Eatery by George as on-site vantage points.
    • Campbells Cove: You can watch the live projection at a specially created viewing event at Campbells Cove hosted by the Vienna Tourist Board. It is ideally located directly across from the Sydney Opera House.

      Campbells Cove is located in between the Park Hyatt and the Overseas Passenger Terminal in The Rocks.

    • Online: you can tune into the live stream at visions.vienna.info from 8:50pm AEST.

    What will be projected onto the sails?
    At 8.30pm the sails will become host to a moving artwork with animated 3D images. As well as featuring imagery inspired by the art of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele the sails will be transformed into the pages of the original score of On the Beautiful Blue Danube waltz by J STRAUSS II.

    Then, at 9pm, the second half of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s concert, Greatest Hits from Vienna, will be projected live on to the sails from inside the Concert Hall.

    We hope you enjoy the performance.

    And last but not least, the link to the concert / presentation. You might like to put it to full scree and ensure your volume is on all the way or listen on head phones.

    Concentrate on this Sentence 

    Like these for not only the thoughts, but the flowers and their colour.

    Concentrate on this Sentence

    ‘To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.’ When God takes something from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence… ‘The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.’ Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear.

    This is not a joke; someone will call you by phone or will speak to you about something that you were waiting to hear. Do not break!

    Send it to a minimum of 3 people… Not before you read below


    There comes a point in your life when you realize:

    Who matters,
    Who never did,
    Who won’t anymore…
    And who always will.
    So, don’t worry about people from your past,
    there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.
    Give these flowers to everyone you don’t want to lose in 2011
    Including me, if that’s what is in your heart.
    Try to collect 8 ; it’s not easy!

    Subject: Christmas is coming guys – gift hints for your wives …

    It all began with an iPhone…
    March was when my son celebrated his 15th birthday, and I got him an iPhone.
    He just loved it. Who wouldn’t?

    image.png

    I celebrated my birthday in July, and my wife made me very happy when
    she  bought me an iPad.

    image.png

    My daughter’s birthday was in August so I got her an iPod Touch.

    image.png

     

     September came by so for her birthday i got my wife an iRon. 

    image.png

     


    It was around then that the fight started……

       

    What the wife failed to recognise is that the iRon can be integrated into the home network with the iWash, iCook and iClean.  Although this inevitably activates the iNag reminder service.

     

    Note – it has completely destroyed the iRoot functionality.

    Oh to live to be this old!

    Subject: Oh to live to be this old!

    Hi Larry,

    Can you please post

    Thanks

    Let’s hope this happens to all of us!
    98 and no enemies – human interest story

    All women should live so long as to be this kind of old lady!

    Toward the end of Sunday service,
    the Minister asked,
    ‘ How many of you have forgiven your enemies? ‘
    80% held up their hands.

    The Minister then repeated his question.
    All responded this time,
    except one small elderly lady.

    ‘Mrs. Neely,
    Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?’

    ‘I don’t have any,’
    she replied, smiling sweetly.

    ‘Mrs. Neely, that is very unusual.

    How old are you? ‘

    ‘Ninety-eight,’ she replied.
    The congregation stood up
    and clapped their hands.

    ‘Oh, Mrs. Neely, would you please come down in front & tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years
    & not have an enemy in the world? ‘

    The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, and said, ‘ I outlived the bitches. ‘
