I Ate A Puffer Fish & Survived!

The Japanese delicacy known as Fugu, Puffer or Blowfish is more poisonous than cyanide. Japanese people love it and one would wonder why, when the risk of dying from consuming it is always a worry.

People say it is 200 times more poisonous than cyanide and 23 people have died in the last 15 years from consuming ill prepared Fugu.

The English Language!

We do tend to treat the English language with a great deal of disrespect don’t we?, (as I’m sure other nationalities do also!).

I think of the various ways we bend the meaning of words, even going so far as to completely change their original meaning altogether, and the lazy way we pronounce a lot of other words is sad, but I suppose only to be accepted in today’s fast-moving world, and one needs to take in the effects of all the accents used, these are another source of meaning changes I’m sure.

My Multicultural Family!

I can in all honesty, claim to have a truly multicultural family. As well as multicultural, I think my 4 siblings and I could rival the late Elizabeth Taylor in the race to see how many divorces and marriages we have had!

There have been 3 Australians, 1 Greek, 2 Africans, 1 Austrian, 1 Samoan, 1 Italian, 1 Dutch,1 Danish and 2 Englishmen in our past and present partners. Our children have added a few more cultures with Melanesian, French, German, Swedish, Norwegian, as well as more Italians, Indian Slovakian and English.

Jocelyn Watts

I’ve always loved writing and story-telling. But I never thought that one-day I’d be writing about my own life. It’s proving to be a more complicated process than I’d expected!

It started out with the idea of a memoir of my life – something I could pass on to the kids, because sadly my husband Don died from suicide and it was basically going to be the story of moving forward from that horrific event and getting my life back together.

How 'CTS' Has Put My Life On Hold

Today I resigned from work. I finished my last day today, I had a good last day and felt that I accomplished much in the past 5 weeks or so. I’m very grateful and appreciative of the support and help from my coworkers and of course Roxy, one of my best friends who has helped me get this job in the first place.

I Actually Patted A Komodo Dragon!
Taman Safari Indonesia, what a wonderful place to visit. Located at Bogor, West Java, about a 2 hour drive from Jakarta.

This wildlife park is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The animals roam freely in large areas.

Cars can be driven through the areas and animals may be fed.

Women 4 Women

In 2018, when my marriage ended after nearly 25 years, I was thrown into the family law court system.

I was pretty naive at that point in time because I thought that the court system would look after me and do the right thing, and it didn’t.

And I fell through the cracks.

Story Dogs - Helping Kids To Read

If you love reading to kids then you’ll love Story Dogs!

It’s a literacy support program mostly aimed at year two children to help them read  better. Basically an accredited volunteer and their dog go into a school each week at the same time and the school chooses four children who have reading difficulties for whatever reason.

I want to give appreciation and recognition to everyone who has worked on this amazing show; it wouldn’t of been possible without them, especially those who work behind the scenes and the lights, how atmospheric it was~! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

The pianist was phenomenal and he looked like he was enjoying himself so much; his energy really matched Stevens!! 👌🏽

Cool Waters - My Special Place

Have you ever had that one place you like to go to often that just ‘sings’ to you? A special place that perhaps brings back memories of younger days when life was so happy?

I grew up in Brinsmead – a suburb of Cairns in FNQ and as a kid, often used to walk across to Freshwater Creek that ran through the Coolwaters Caravan Park.
 
For me it's a very special place. I still absolutely love it because it brings peace to my heart.

Make time for YOU!

Too busy eh? Hmmm… Ever had someone say that to you? Maybe you’ve said it yourself!
I guess at some stage we all have, but what is it that makes us ‘soooo damned busy?’

Is all that we are trying to do on a daily basis really THAT important?
