Top 101 Artists' Blogs - Update 31/1/08

31 January 2008 49 comments



I have just finished updating the Top 101 Artists' Blogs ...it took about 2 days to do it as my computer has been running very slowly...I think I need an upgrade...
I have changed the format of the list to ranking as I have had so many submissions that I thought it would be fairer to list everyone by rank ...
because so many artists are on the same authority I have ranked the blogs in groups
eg top 10 rank ...top 20 rank and so on....

A Letter from André Rieu Productions

28 January 2008 34 comments


Last Week I received a letter from André Rieu Productions
with three photographs of the portrait that I presented to Mr Rieu...
They thanked me for the portrait and Mr Rieu very generously signed the photos that I had included with the painting.
I sent the letter and photos off to the framers and they did a wonderful job (in 2 days!)




I am going to give one of the photos to my Mum and the other one to my Sister (also big fans of the famous Musician)

View the Portrait of André Rieu here -
"The Flying Dutchman"

As most Australians are aware Mr André Rieu is coming to Australia this year.

AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR 2008 - LEE KERNAGHAN



an excellent article written by the Premier of NSW -Morris Iemma
Love thy neighbour - it's in our hands



thanks Lakshmi for this illuminating email


WHAT IS A GRANDPARENT?



    (taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)

    Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of her
    own. They like other people's.

    A grandfather is a man & a grandmother is a lady!

    Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to
    see them. They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run. It is good if
    they drive us to the shops and give us money.

    When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty
    leaves and caterpillars.

    They show us and talk to us about the color of the flowers and also why
    we shouldn't step on "cracks."

    They don't say, "Hurry up."

    Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.

    They wear glasses and funny underwear.

    They can take their teeth and gums out.

    Grandparents don't have to be smart.

    They have to answer questions like "Why isn't God married?" and "How
    come dogs chase cats?".

    When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the
    same story over again.

    Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have
    television because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with
    us.

    They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers
    with us every time and kiss us even when we've acted bad.

    A 6 YEAR OLD WAS ASKED WHERE HIS GRANDMA LIVED. ''OH,'' HE SAID, ''SHE
    LIVES AT THE AIRPORT AND WHEN WE WANT HER WE JUST GO GET HER. THEN WHEN
    WE'RE DONE HAVING HER VISIT, WE TAKE HER BACK TO THE AIRPORT.''

    GRANDPA IS THE SMARTEST MAN ON EARTH! HE TEACHES ME GOOD THINGS BUT I
    DON'T GET TO SEE HIM ENOUGH TO GET AS SMART AS HIM!




William Dobell: hard drawing - 15 December to 10 February 08
Radical or conservative? This exhibition examines the practice of Newcastle’s most famous artist and includes previously unexhibited artist’s sketchbooks and archival photographs, in conjunction with selected works from both public and private collections.
Allow yourself a couple of hours at least to view this exhibition as there is a marvellous DVD (approx 55 mins) that is a must see as well!!


I am recognising my fellow bloggers today by posting "my neighbours" in Australia


Australian Blogs



Message from NSW Ambulance Service
We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than if we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name "ICE" ( In Case Of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored as "ICE".
It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest. For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.

thanks to John & Jude for this email

Thank you very much Sue...




What prompted Sue to create the award was reading that January is National Mentoring Month.in the USA. This is an initiative spearheaded by the Harvard Mentoring Project of the Harvard School of Public Health, with the aim of recruiting volunteer mentors to help young people achieve their full potential. The US ‘Thank Your Mentor Day™’ is dedicated to thanking or honoring individuals who have guided us and had a lasting impact on our lives.
Although the Blogging Mentor award is not restricted for use in January’s Mentoring Month, ‘Thank your Mentor Day‘ may be a particularly good time to use it. The date for 2008 is 24th January.

I am going to pass this award on to the people who helped me out with my blogging in many different ways...
