G’day #Name#,

Hope this finds you fit and well.

Here is a bunch of what flittered through my mind or crossed my digital desk over the last week. I hope you get something from it!

I was cleaning up on Tuesday and recalled that the skin is quite absorbant of things to which it is exposed - both good and bad. So is the mind. You’ve heard the sayig, “You are what you eat.” And if you have read Don Chisholm’s book “Have You Got The GUTS to Be REALLY Healthy” you will recall him saying that it is not what we eat but what we absorb that truly keeps us healthy. Well, it is not just the gut. Because the skin and mind absorb from what they come into contact, you are physically and mentally affected by what is in your environment.

I well recall a conversation I had with a person I trained to take over a job I held. It was a few months after I had moved on when we spoke. She told me the place was “toxic”, that whe was already thinking of moving on.

When I am approached at an Expo by a person suffering from a chronic ill-health condition I often ask, “When did this start?” then “Were you under any stress at the time” Almost without exception the person can identify the stress they were under at the time.

So my recommendation to you is each night for the next month look over your conversations for the day. Identify those people who you feel better after talking with and those you feel worse. Restructure your life so you spend less time with the latter and more time with the former.

If that is not easily done, at least identify what they do that makes you feel worse and make the decision to be more aware of it and not take aboard what they want to dump on you. Remember, the Poles have a saying, “Not my circus, not my monkey!” Just because someone has a monkey on their back it does not mean you need to take it on your back when they try to palm some negativity off onto you.

My product as a being is a more aware you. I want you more aware, more intelligent, more informed, more knowledgable, more energetic, more powerful, more capable and more competent. The people you love and the people you meet need you to be the best you can be. The world needs you to be the best you can be.

So take an hour this weekend, look over your life and identify the areas where you are not being the best you can be and decide what you are going to do to improve that area of your life. Your future self will thank you for it.


Adani - Massive fraud, crony capitalism and a pollution disaster right on the Great Barrier Reef coast.

The latest Adani Files reveal that Adani have already brought their shonky business practices and environmental destruction to Australia. It proves beyond a doubt that Adani can’t be trusted to build the world’s biggest new coal mine. And they definitely can’t be trusted with a billion taxpayer dollars to do it. I received this email from GetUp:

Hi Tom,

Earlier this year we released the Adani Files — a comprehensive summary of Adani’s terrifying track record.

Since then, Adani has been so busy racking up fresh scandals and disasters that we've had to completely update their rap sheet.

We’re talking investigations of massive fraud, crony capitalism and a pollution disaster right on the Great Barrier Reef coast.

But despite all this, the Turnbull government is still desperate to hand them a billion dollars of public money to build the biggest and most dangerous new coal mine on the planet.

We still have work to do. Can you help expose the awful truth about Adani by sharing the latest dirt with your friends?

Adani’s track record proves they will try every dirty trick in the book to get what they want. And right now, they’re hellbent on getting their hands on the billion dollar handout.

Adani’s got a huge advertising budget, lobbyists swarming all over Canberra, and a billion-dollar Government slush fund that seems tailored to their interests.

We’re up against a formidable enemy. That’s why wherever our MPs go they need to be hearing that Adani can’t trusted.

They need to be surrounded by voters from their own electorates reminding them at every turn that Adani’s coal will hurt people. It will hurt the planet. And it will hurt the government at the next election.

Share the latest Adani Files with your friends and help show our politicians why Adani can’t be trusted.

The new Adani Files are just the latest chapter in a long and sordid history of Adani trampling communities and trashing the environment in their greedy pursuit of profit.

Together, we’ll stop this rotten coal mine before Adani do any more damage.

Thanks for standing up to Adani.

Sam R and Adam, for the GetUp team

Australian Woman Dies A Week After Being Flu Vaccinated

Another avoidable tragedy!

Larry Pickerings thoughts

Many of us came from convict backgrounds, sent in to exile for stealing a coat or a loaf of bread or a silver spoon.

Some came for murder and robbery or prostitution. Tough people.

Many came from China to work on the Gold Fields.

Some came from Italy to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electricity scheme.

Some came from Hungary during the Revolution.

Some came from Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

But they came for a chance to work and start a new life.

And they worked hard!

The Greeks, Poles, Ukrainians, Italians, Russians, Latvians, Dutch, Serbs and Irish, so many more that it would be impossible to name.

There were no hand-outs, no privileges offered.

These people were given a chance to start a new life, in Australia, to become Australians. And Australians they became.

They learned English and embraced our country while offering the gift of their food and culture and music.

We accepted that gift and sat together at the same table and laughed and drank their wine, ate their food, danced to their music and married and loved their people.

As they did us.

I have spoken with friends from Hungarian, Italian etc, backgrounds and while they embrace and celebrate their roots, they consider themselves Australian.

The common denominator with this terrible situation that we find ourselves in is that our current immigrant population do not want to embrace our culture but to destroy it.

They do not want to learn our language, but to annihilate it. They do not want to work but to get us to work for them.

When our feminists ignore the genital mutilation, oppression of women, rape of little children of both sexes, we have a problem.

When our Politicians condemn an elected member of the Dutch Parliament for coming to Australia to speak his views, we have a problem.

When Australians are callously-murdered in cold blood by immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race and our Government offers sympathy to the family of the perpetrator of the crime before offering sympathy to the family of the victim, then we have a problem.

When Australians are living below the poverty line and have nowhere to live while immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race are prioritised, then we have a problem.

When 16,000 English-speaking skilled-professional workers are refused visas and 12,000 uneducated, non-English speaking refugees are accepted, then guess what, we have a problem!

When Australians are called racists and bigots for speaking out about their concerns about the above, then again, we as a Nation have a problem.

When people prefer to debate the best bachelor or best contestant on X Factor to debating our Nation’s future, our children’s future and our grandchildren’s future, well you got it, we have a problem.

When our news is censored and we have to delve in to the internet to find out what is happening in the world and in our own country, dare I say, we have a problem.

The one thing that sets Australia apart from almost any other Nation on Earth is the Aussie spirit. It can be seen as a ’she’ll be right mate’ attitude that suggests apathy; or ’she’ll be right mate’ because we will take care of it.

I went and saw “Bridge of Lies” yesterday and it is well worth the watch.

The Berlin Wall was put up to separate two different Political views. It was a physical wall.

Today, we have a wall being built in Australia. It is not made of bricks and mortar. It is made of censorship, Political Correctness and insidious manipulation through media control, Acts of Parliament and Social media trolls. There is no razor wire, no watch towers. Just the ability to call someone a racist.

I am reminded of the words in the old childhood saying: “Sticks and stones may break my bones - but words will never hurt me.”

Well today, apparently words can hurt you, but only if you live on the side of the wall that our Government and Politicians have elected as the ’right’ side of the wall.

No longer are people in Australia even able to scale a wall. Bullets are not needed. To shoot us down, all that is needed is to call us racists or bigots.

I am hoping that the Aussie ’she’ll be right mate’ translates to ’don’t worry, we will take care of it’ and rise up and say that this is our country.

Friends, this is not a Refugee crisis. This is an Australia Crisis.

I fear that it will be too late if something does happen while we still have enough Aussies left.

So I Accidentally Found a Security Vulnerability in Windows 10

About six months ago, in the process of going all Linux, I was selling off an old laptop of mine with an SSD and Windows 10 to a friend. I wanted to securely remove all my data without removing the Windows install since I had lost the OEM key. I recalled seeing Windows 10 having a secure reset feature, described as being designed for easily removing all personal data from your computer before recycling or selling it. That sounded great, and so I pressed the button to start it and the ridiculousness of the last six months of my life began.

A Quote From Voltaire.

"Each player must accept the cards life deals to him or her; But once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game."


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
