Hey to all the lurkers out there.

Was looking at my web visits report last week and discovered that people from all over the world have stopped by at one point or another to have a read (or maybe have just jumped straight past..... who knows).

There have been visitors from Albania, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, St Kitts & Nevis, Sweden, USA.

It's really cool how the web has brought countries and people that little bit closer, despite being many miles apart. Please, take a moment and introduce yourselves so we know who you are.

Joke of the Week

We were having pizza tonight with some of the young people I work with. One of the young people told this joke:

A man walks into a pizza shop & orders a pizza. The man behind the counter asks him "would you like it cut into 4 pieces or 6 ?"

The customer replies "Oh only 4 pieces, I couldn't eat 6."

We actually thought it was quite funny - until he proceeded to explain the joke......

Sometimes it's better to say nothing at all.........

Two Canadian geese decided to fly south for the winter. A frog was sitting next to them as they decided this and he decided he wanted to go as well. The geese laughed and said "you're just a frog- you can't fly!" The frog knew that he didn't want to stay in the cold, so he thought and thought and thought.

"I got an idea!" the frog said. He found a long stick. "You two hold this stick in your claws and I'll hold on to the middle."

"With what?" the geese asked. "Your little hands could never hold on to a stick!"

"With my mouth" said the frog, proud of his idea.

So the geese put the stick in there claws, the frog clamped on with his mouth and they began to fly south successfully. A day or two later, a crowd of people looked up and saw the two geese flying overhead, holding a stick with a frog holding on in the middle with his mouth. Someone in the crowd exclaimed, "What a brilliant idea- I wonder who thought of that?"

The frog proudly exclaimed "I did!"

Happy Birthday To Me

Well, it's the beginning of my 33rd year on the planet - I feel old !!

A quick observation on birthdays & the web......

It was a strange thing to log into my email account this morning and find emails from various online services and companies that I've joined online over the years wishing me happy birthday. I guess that takes customer serive to a whole new level.

If only my friends & I were better at keeping in touch with each other. I suck at writing emails at the minute. Sorry folks. I'll try & do better this year.

What Is My Legacy ??

Went to hear my good friend Jude preach at her church yesterday. She was finishing off a series on Joshua & asked the question "What is my (your) legacy ?". What do you want to be known/ remembered for when you are gone.

Good question.

I think I want to be remembered for being a good friend; for standing up for what I believe in; for making a stand when I see injustice towards others. I want to make a difference in the lives of the people I work with - I don't expect to make a difference in the lives of everyone I meet/ work with, but if I can make a difference in one young person's life, or help them make changes in their life for the better, then it'll have been worth it.

Quote of the Day:

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says... I'll try again tomorrow"
