A few things that I have learned about chooks
We have five hens at our current location. That's the limit. No roosters; they are not allowed due to their cock crows. But, let me tell you, a hen celebrating the recent release of an egg can be astonishing loud. They can also be quite demanding. Should yo...

Good idea. Rick
+grantham clayford +Deanna Horvath +Paul Ross we should create a space for Teachers of Health in LinkedIn. I've seen the the OTs set something up in there...

Tire. Long day with a thousand pin pricks of things to get done. Girls slugging it out with their work.

Cathy and I dealing with the financials. Pretty much sorted. Using Westpac Global Money Cards. Had a few bugs to sort out.

Looks like an improvement over three years ago with ANZ and Commonwealth. The latter wasn't too bad. But could not really keep track of things. WP had an app for iOS and Android that allows you to manage things on the run. You can even load more money...well you have to have some in the first place.

Rooster seems to know something is up. Comes by frequently to check me out and sits down for a while to rest his head in my lap for a chin scratch. I told him to stop or I would get a rash. Just kidding.

Two more wake ups and a ride to the airport. Ground control to Major Tom...

We're still getting ready for the trip. Last minute shopping and logistics. Backing up documents and preparing backup plans. Finishing work and education projects and finalising paperwork. The University world is fading rapidly for number one daughter and myself; number three daughter finished her teaching at the end of last semester.

We are planning to travel light. One 'carry on' weighing no more than seven kilos. A personal bag with a laptop or a camera loaded in. Also under seven kilos. If we have to, we will check the larger 'carry on' during domestic flights in USA. Looking forward to the road trip in a seven seater.

Loading up music and reading materials on laptops, tablets and smartphones. I suspect that we've got more computing power than than NASA had for the moon landings. 

Haircuts, new summer hats, beard trims (me), nails done (the girls), money cards and triple checking the itinerary and a little worried about what the travel insurance does and does not cover (we remember last trip). Beginning to believe that we will be on holidays and committed to undertaking educational excursions. Seeing family and friends.

Looking forward to getting to the heart of our cultural heritage in terms of music and art. A visit to Flannery O'Connor country and the Lone Star State (Western Swing here we come); then, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, Baltimore, New York, and LA. Just a few days rest when we get back to Melbourne before getting stuck into work again.

Mother and Son done for Esther. The girls finished with Walking Into the Bigness. Looks like a catalogue is to be worked on until we get on the plane. Classical country on the Apple TV...Johnny Cash now.

Captain Myles Standish, His Will and Captain Cudworth
Myles Standish Our link to the Cudworth family is not new news. The fact that someone in our family was associated with Myles Standish, whose first wife was Rose, is not new news. We knew of John Irish, Junior being mentioned in the will (see it here ). Iro...

Can you be just a Yeoman with a royal ancestry?
My father used to like to say that it took an Act of Congress to make him an officer AND a gentleman. I think that there were two points being made. The first was about manners and the second was about station in life. A gentleman in England once meant some...

A little historical perspective with current applications
Over the holidays, Cal has been doing some historical work on gardening and its relation to the larger society. Here are some of the tidbits: Victory gardens during WWII. (They were also done during WWI). This page has a basic historical description of the ...

When is cooperation collaboration with the enemy?
We now know how close the men on the ‘Burma Railway’ came to being annihilated. It was not merely the working conditions and the lack of food and other supplies that threatened their lives. The Japanese were prepared to eliminate prisoners with callous disr...
