Looking After our Older generation with Love…

“While I was distracted, Norah was busy standing up in the shopping cart, excitedly waving and gleefully proclaiming, ‘Hi old person! It’s my birfday today!’”

Seventy-eight years separate these two people in age. Somehow, their hearts and souls seem to recognize each other from long ago.

Organ Donation..

I am a registered organ donor. In 2011 we lost someone very important in our lives.
We were given the opportunity to donate Wayne’s organs.
His organs successfully changed the lives of at least seven other people.
Next week in National Organ Donor week please consider donating your organs to save others.
It is an honour to remember the love you may have for someone who also gave this gift.

I’m a registered donor! What are you waiting for? Join the Australian Organ Donor Register online today to save lives. #endthewait #donatelife

Rio’s Welcome Sign – 2016 Olympics.

“Solar City Tower”, built atop the island of Cotonduba, will be the welcome symbol to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
It will be seen by the game visitors and participants as they arrive by air or water.
The tower, captures solar energy. It will supply energy for all of the Olympic city, as well as also for part of Rio. It pumps up water from the ocean to create what appears like a water fall
and this fall stimulates turbines that produce energy during the night. It will also hold the Olympic flame.
