Public Speaker, Reconstructionist Cook and Senior SoloTraveler
Introduction
Writer, Radio Producer, Civil Celebrant, Mythology Maven and WordPress Junkie.

Excessively fond of kitchen witchery and historical detectives. Also of chewy mints. I support these vices with my work as a Virtual Personal Assistant. 

I enjoy the company of animals and grandchildren and most evenings you can catch me walking with some of them along the River Yarra. Bring along some Irish traditional music. Don't forget the mints.

I wish people would stop asking me to join Google+ groups. Especially one about 'sad but not broken'. I must get 30 requests a week from just that one group. Why ask me to join things?

I'm taking the Ration Challenge! I'll be opening my eyes to what it's like for refugees to survive on rations. During refugee week, June 19th-25th I'll eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee .Will you sponsor me to do this?

Even $5 helps, it doesn't just ensure that Syrian refugees have enough to eat, it tells them that there are people who actually care

Put your money where my mouth is! From 19-25 June I will be eating the same food rations as a Syrian refugee to show refugees I am with them, not against them. The money I raise will provide life-saving food, healthcare and education. Sponsor me today and show refugees we care.

Well I really enjoyed watching Up Helly Aa live from Lerwick,  Shetland. Fantastic fire festival to mark the end of Yule! It was 6.00 am on Wednesday morning for me - terrific way to start the day
Up Helly Aa will be broadcast live on the 26th January 2016 by 60N.TV - Promote Shetland's internet broadcasting initiative.

These are sweets for festive occasions, little balls of fried dough drenched in honey. You serve them hot, dusted with icing sugar, decorated with any combination you like of sugared almonds, hundreds and thousands, tiny sprinkles, mixed peel, crushed nuts etc. I’ve seen them with chocolate icing in Palermo but that’s a little too much even for my sweet tooth.

It's just heartbreaking what kids have to put up with in coffee shops and food chains. We know about their abysmal treatment in MacDonalds, now we hear about the absolute rip-off they suffer in 711 stores but more and more places are coming to light
