An interesting story of a home and a life.
Trad Pads don't come much more traditional than this.  It is a reflection of a life.  Please watch the video.  I was taken by the real estate man's instructions and intentions to leave the house as is.  Of course what happens...

Hate evil and love good, then work it out in the public square: so sez Amos. #Blogaction14, #Inequality, #Oct16, #Ballarat
Some years ago, Eugene H Peterson produced The Message. There are many versions of The Bible - and some of these are in modern English. The Message, like it or not, is rather different.  It is written in what is referred to as "idiomatic" English.  One thin...

Work
Occupation
Writing, Researching, Blogging, Environmental and Community Activism
Skills
Administration - including shorthand and typing at high speed levels. Research - I'm an informationo junking from childhood who grew up to become a Librarian. Writing - can handle punctuation and complex clauses as well as simple and clear communication. Community organising - everything from an impromptu party for a thousand people to leading people to an overseas conference as well as the traditional female things of street stalls and fundraising functions.
Employment
  • Too many diverse employers and careers
    I have not been restricted to one long career path. My working life has zig-zagged across diverse positions.This has led me into some very interesting work in some very interesting Australian places.

Story
Introduction
I'm a Has Been - or to be grammatically correct a Have Been. I have been - Nurse, Librarian, Station Cook, Union Organiser, Political Staffer, Corporate PA, Business Woman. I receive that well-known arts/blogging subsidy known as the Old Aged Pension and keep myself occupied out-of-doors with gardening, community activism & doing coffee.
Education
  • University of Queensland
    Bachelor of Arts
    Economics - macro and micro economic Government - public and social policy Sociology - the main emphasis of this was on community studies. I am a community person and the subjects coming under this heading gave me the theory to go with the practice. Studies in Religion - an excellent way to get an overview of religion in general while looking at a few in particular. These days I am involved in a number of interfaith groups and I feel that this major has well equipped for me this. My university education came about thanks to being part of a disadvantaged group (women) and courtesy of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam who gave Australia free tertiary education which, regretfully, is no longer available.
  • Stella Maris College, Bowen
    This is where I went to High School - Sub-Junior and Junior or what would, these days, be called Grades 9 and 10. I did Maths 1; dropped Maths 2 - couldn't get a handle on geometry; English; Latin; History; Shorthand; Typing. I left school equipped to earn a living in an office.
