    _________ 50 years since man stepped on the moon! ________ ________________ How will YOU celebrate? ________________ 

    Earthrise with moon horizon - Apollo 11 (20 July 1969)

    Earthrise with moon horizon – Apollo 11 (20 July 1969)

    On July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on the moon. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; with the words “”That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.”  Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later.

    Today. 20 July 2019 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that amazing event.  You no doubt either recall or have seen the grainy video of the step.  (If not check out the Google search, National Geographic, the History Channel or a cute Google Doodle.)

    A great event it was, but something more amazing, awe-inspiring and humbling, was the view of the earth from the moon.  First captured when Apollo 8 was there.  The above is purported to be one from the Apollo 11 mission.  (In any case, there are 1000’s on file at Planetary.org.)

    But HOW will you celebrate it?  We have watched NASA and space-related shows for weeks.

    Then this came across our screen – A gift from a stranger tucked into a book sets off a chain of random acts of kindness.  Nothing to do with “a step on the moon” you say.  Yup!

    But the earthrise (or “small blue marble”) got us to thinking about how small the earth is, and how much smaller we are, and ….

    What makes a man great? What he DOES.  A step on the moon.  An act of kindness.  A “pay it forward” moment.

    With all the “movements” and “causes” these days, how can anyone help?  EACH of us CAN help.  So we’re going to start (carry on actually, this is already going as you can see from the article) with regular random acts of kindness..  Will you start/carry on the random acts of kindness?  You can reply if you like.  You don’t need to.  If you have a great story to tell and you want to share.  Great.  Just ACT.

    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 –


    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


    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.

    How to know the gender of A Fly


    This is the cleanest E-mail joke
    I’ve come across in a long while!

    A woman walked into the kitchen to find her
    husband stalking around with a fly swatter

    ‘What are you doing?’ !
    She asked.

    ‘Hunting Flies’
    He responded.

    ‘Oh. ! Killing any?’
    She asked.

    ‘Yep, 3 males, 2 Females,’ he replied.

    Intrigued, she asked.
    ‘How can you tell them apart?’

    He responded,
    ‘3 were on a beer can,
    2 were on the phone

    Have A Wonderful Day !!!

    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!
