  1. Happy Friday! Thanks for linking us up each week. I love reading the blogs of others involved in this project of love as we raise these unique and wonderful children. Thanks for all you do.

  2. Dear people,

    Since I last contributed to the Link-Up, on Saturday I wrote about Rudi Webster, a Barbadian doctor who worked for and with sports teams in the 1970s and 1980s. His essential elements of sports performance include pressure; concentration; motivation and self-talk.

    I needed that yesterday as I practised serving twenty balls down the court. Sub-goals are very important.

    On Sunday I wrote about four classical musicians and one oldies musician who is now dead. That was the end of Mental Health Week and music is very important to my mental health and sense of grounding. I also wrote about entrepreneurship and the DownsTownMall and this series of Hour Histories I had discovered after reading parts of Chris Burke's biography A special kind of hero.

    For #themmlinky on Monday I wrote about the Boyer Lectures which were given by Genevieve Bell this year. They are about being fast, smart and connected as humans in the digital world.

    My Tuesday post was intended to be "The last rockstar" - Safari had crashed and I used the TorBrowser instead and reconfigured several settings. Fortunately it was saved as a draft and I was able to write a Wednesday post on why #cultureisnotacostume and why #cocurricularactivities are important in the context of history and geography clubs and table clubs in mathematics.

    Then it was the anniversary of the 1987 sharemarket crash and important things happened on the 19th October 2017. And that brings us to yesterday and today.

    The important things were: National Energy Guarantee; voluntary assisted dying is now legal in Victoria [the first Australian state to do this]; and the Productivity Commission report on the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Oh, and Jacinda Ardern is now New Zealand's Prime Minister. I watched a documentary called Ken Douglas: traitor or visionary and there are two interesting documentaries on NZ on Screen about Eve van Grafhorst - a small girl who was banned from her Australian kindergarten for biting her friends when she had AIDS from a blood transfusion.

    I did finish The portrait of a lady and I have interesting thoughts about Pansy Osmond. Right now I am reading The Open Notebook and an obituary of Michael Ashford who was born in 1960 and died this year. His nine-years-younger sister wrote it.


Thanks for sharing!
