Autistic Pride Day

Today is Autistic Pride Day.

And I am proud of my son, he's a wonderful boy BECAUSE he has autism and while we may find his behaviours challenging at times it does not change the fact that he gives a lot to those around him and we are grateful for him just as he is.

Scrapping with feeling

This blog seems to have attracted the attention of some very passionate scrappers.

I am a great fan of diving into hobbies with passion. It is much more entertaining that way.

I encourage people however to look beyond partisanship and embrace compassionate scrapbooking. (ahh election season. . .)

I love it even more when logic and passion are combined and my challenge to the scrappers is to correctly interpret the following maxim in the context of current discussions on the "Cold War" post.

All ducks are birds but not all birds are ducks

At present many of the comments are proving my point, which while entertaining for me, hardly gives me more to work with!

Drinking Hazards

One of the lesser known drinking hazards is watching the 7.30 report on the ABC after 3 glasses of wine.

Engaging in this practice can lead to intemperate posts such as the one that follows.

I'm not overly fond of pulp mills. I understand their necessity but would rather do without paper thank you very much.

My ire is aroused when I see representatives of pulp paper companies (in this case Gunns) Clumsily defending the mill they wish to build on the Tamar River by declaring that their mill will bring (of all things) more tourism to Tasmania.


You have got to be kidding.

This post is totally non-coffee or scrapbooking related, except perhaps in as much that had I been drinking coffee or watching Mrs Grendel Scrapbook, rather than drinking Cabernet Sauvignon, it would not have been made.
