Lorde Met David Bowie And Was Awestruck

Lorde
Lorde Met David Bowie And Was Awestruck - Lorde

Our own 17 year old Grammie-Nominee Lorde once more receives accolades from a big name in music to help encourage her to continue on the path that she has chosen to take her from relative obscurity in Auckland, New Zealand to one of the top singing stars of all time throughout the world. What an honour it was for her to meet and be told by no less than David Bowie himself that he was one of her fans and that he listened to her regularly.

As with all teenagers these days, the colourful language with which she describes her experience goes like this:  “I was like…I could creatively die and just be happy forever”.  Which interpreted means that she was totally enamoured of the attention and praise he gave her.

I am so happy for our Lorde who continues to stand up for what she believes should be her image in an industry whereby the adults who supposedly know better change innocence into porn through their greed almost overnight and lead the star of the moment into thinking that they are doing the right thing to keep up with what is happening in the world.

She has such a beautiful upbringing from parents who taught her to care, love and respect herself to the point whereby she protects beautiful moments in her own life with awe.  Her meeting with David Bowie is her own special moment and is something not to be shared with the general public and I respect her for that, ……Click here to read Part 2 of Lorde Met David Bowie And Was Awestruck

……bothering to help their children to learn this important communication skill so their children will continue to live life suffering in great silence.

As a result, with this ignorance of something that would benefit their children, the Sign Language itself is experiencing a real shortage of teachers to help with the situation.  And that is very sad because every year the need for Sign Language teachers grows, and yet every year, the need is not being met simply through parents not encouraging their own children who have this problem to advance themselves in this field of knowledge.

In 2006, we had such an encouraging reaction to the law change.  However, enthusiasm since has dropped sharply.  Is our Kiwi “She’ll be right” attitude getting in the way.  When “She’ll be right” will never come right if something is not done about it in a practical way.

So long as there are deaf people or special needs in other areas people in our communities, sign language will not disappear as they need this amongst themselves to communicate with each other.  And we who do not have the need should be learning so that we can communicate with those with whom we meet in our business world who do suffer in this way.

Signing falls into the minority language category.  How does one communicate from generation to generation if signing is not learned and passed down?  It takes time to learn any other language and unless you have the support of the whole family, then it is difficult to use what you have…….Click here to read Part 3 of Is Sign Language On Your List Of Learning Priorities

The Family – Part 2

The Family

Part 2

WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.

ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.

IN THE PREMORTAL REALM, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshipped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize their divine destiny as heirs of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God ++and for families to be united eternally.

THE FIRST COMMANDMENT that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife. We declare that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.

WE DECLARE the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God’s eternal plan.

HUSBAND AND WIFE have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. “Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). ……Click here to read Part 3 of The Family.

…………who better to do it than the very person they wake up in the morning to see and the last person they see at night. Not having time for your child is just a copout as I see it.  Even myself, as a busy author and online marketer, makes the time for everything in my life, including having grandchildren over for holidays. It is normal for kids to want to do things and if their thought of doing things is steered in the right direction then the fear of grass and the adventures of outdoor play will become a thing of the past.

Right now in the world as we know it today, it seems that inside activities are superceding that which is a more natural state for any human being.  The computer and related devices are taking over the lives of our children when being outside breathing fresh air is being totally ignored in many families of today.  It is even getting that way that our children are not even physically talking to each other.  Gone are the days when we would moan that they were always on the phone.  Instead we have replaced that scenario with texting, chat rooms and Facebook, freeing up our phones, yes, however, at what cost?

“Specialists in play” are now creating themselves jobs and businesses for which they now hire themselves out to schools just to teach our children to enjoy the outdoors.

What kind of society demands a “specialist in play” to frequent our children’s lives?

Wake up you parents.

Nothing in this world is a good enough excuse to………….. Click here to read Part 3 of With The Onslaught Of Political Correctness Are We Coddling Our Kids

What Do You Do When Someone You Love Suffers Sleep Apnoea

Apparently no matter what type of sleep apnoea one suffers, the sufferer is not usually aware they have a problem with difficult breathing, and just go through life accepting that sleepiness during the day, known as EDS or excessive daytime sleepiness, and experiencing fatigue or reduced alertness  in the day is just “normal”.  It is only when someone observes what is happening to the sufferer that the sufferer usually is made aware of their condition by the person observing the behaviour.  Other common symptoms include problems with vision, a slower than normal reaction time, memory retention and learning difficulties, some behavioural problems, planning and carrying out certain tasks, paying attention, processing information, lack of drive, lack of attention, moodiness and some aggression.  In some cases the sufferer may become fearful of the actual state of sleeping through a condition called sleep paralysis, therefore giving rise to insomnia, which sometimes is followed by depression.  All of these symptoms can lead to a problem with normal functioning of the liver- therefore it is important that if you have someone you love who you have observed with sleep apnoea breathing difficulties, it would be a  good idea to consult with a professional person to do something about the problem.  After observing our granddaughter, I would say that she suffers mild OSA which ranges from maybe 5 to 14.9 events every hour that she supposedly sleeps.  Moderate OSA would range from between 15 and 29.9 and very severe OSA would be diagnosed in a sufferer …….……… Click here to read Part 3 of What Do You Do When Someone You Love Suffers Sleep Apnoea

…..now finding life so exciting as to what more I can learn, I seem to be attracted right now to so much of this type of education when before I was quite oblivious to it and not at all interested in it anyway.

For this reason, I feel that 2014 is going to see a huge growth spurt in me in many directions and I am looking forward to looking back at the end of the year to see where I have come from and compare it to where I am or feel I will be at that time.  Currently I am still fighting battles of overcoming distractions that lead one away from where one wants to head.

This post and the support of you the reader will keep me on track and will mark the milestones I have set myself from this point on.

Some tips from Oprah include refusing to allow what is happening in your life right now to influence what you are wanting to achieve and what you are doing to accomplish what you want to achieve.  Always be seeking solutions to what you question in your own heart that are challenges to the way you think about life right now. Never depending on luck to get you through life. Forget about passing the blame to others. Quit making excuses and start taking action for what you want in life.  Have in mind the end result of where you want to be and how it will be for you as you progress.

………Janus, who was the god of gates, doors and beginnings.  Julius Caesar was venerated on the 1st January in the year 42BC by the Roman Senate to honour his life and to acknowledge the new calendar that he restructured 4 years prior to his death.  Janus was symbolized by his picture looking backwards as well as looking forwards, in effect having two faces.

It was when William the Conqueror began his reign of our mother country, England, that he commanded that the 1st of January be recognised to be the beginning of the New Year thus coinciding with his taking over the throne of England in celebration of his coronation and linking the occasion with the eighth day from the birth of Jesus as being the day of Jesus formal circumcision.

I personally think that New Year’s Eve has never been the same since 1999 when we were all awaiting the Y2K bug, when we all thought that computers would self-destruct with the change of the century.  However, we did all survive that moment in history when the clock struck 1 second past midnight and all of our fears were indeed groundless.  There was a lot of money made at the time by IT specialists who had contributed to new software programmes to help us through the transition should things go haywire, as predicted.  Noone knew what could or would happen and we were all pretty pleased that the world did not end at the beginning of 2000.

There seems to be an emphasis on drinking here in New Zealand ……… Click here to read Part 3 of Here’s To A Happy New Year To All Reading My Blogs
