An email from God

One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behaviour that was going on. So He called one of His angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time.
When he returned, he told God, 'Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not.

God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.'

So God called another angel and sent him to Earth for a time. When the angel returned he went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good.'

God was not pleased. So He decided to e-mail the 5% that were good, because He wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going.

Do you know what the e-mail said?

Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either!!!

Hello Readers!
I have found what song I am dancing to for Dance 'n' Dazzles' Student Choreography Comp. I am dancing to "Memory" from the musical Cats. 
Click HERE for the original song,  HERE for the music I'm dancing to, and HERE for a sweet, almost karaoke like version.
Any ballet/modern/contemporary dancer out there who might have an idea or two/suggestions for my dance - please contact me via comments!!

Some of the cats/cast

Grizabella, the she-cat who sings Memory


Victoria, the sweet little kitten

Wordless Wednesday - More Rome

Yes, we are in Rome.

cherub #1: This is how you do it, mate
cherub #2: yeah, I'm (not) watching
the crowds at the Vatican - AHHH!!!
Mum really liked walking up and down steps

One of the street sellers - some were selling water bottles.
View from on top of the bus
(and no, I wasn't pretending to be a Spice Girl)

These were EVERYWHERE! Street corners were most popular
The Vatican
If you look closely, you might see the GINORMOUS line to get into the Vatican

There we were, exhausted after thirty hours on and off planes, unable to get into our accommodation for another two/three hours, and quite hungry. What sight we must have been.
Oh well. That’s just part of the experience.

Let me tell you some things about the Italians…

  They drive on the wrong side of the road
 In tiny cars
 Down tiny streets
ok, so maybe this wasn't a street.
close enough.
 They have teeny, weeny coffee cups
 They have the world’s biggest pizza plates
  They are REALLY good painters
And sculptures
Piazza Navona, just down the street
see, the roads are tiny!

they like gelati

a lot

 and anyone who has been to Rome, and did not meet anyone else calling out
"umbrelli, umbrelli" or "half price, half price"
you need an award.

oh, and just in case you didn't notice,
they are driving on the wrong side of the road.

well, the rest of Rome will have to wait.
I have to get on with my science.

bye bye
(for now)

my angel is called mum

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?"
God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it's life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."


"You will simply call her, 'Mum.'"

I'm smarter then my dad

well, I am.
Dad thought that "velocity" and "speed" were the same thing and could be used interchangeably.
Apparently, in physics, there is big difference between them.
Speed tells you how quickly an object moves, while velocity tells you how quickly and in what direction the object is moving.
There you go. Learn something new everyday.
Actually, the real reason for my post is this video that I like.
Its the Bluebird Pas de deux form Sleeping Beauty.
I can only dance Princess Florine's solo though.
Here it is...
The Bluebirds' solo starts at 2:50
Princess Florine's solo starts at 3:59
