    Hi, Ian, we had lovely warm weather for Fathers’ Day today. We enjoyed having some of our children visiting us. Hope you had a good Fathers’ Day too.
    Cheers, Auntyuta.

      Hi Auntyuta, yes it was a great fathers day spending it with my new born grandaughter, as you no doubt know by my recent blog, glad you and Peter had an enjoyable day with some of your children.
      Hot summer weather has finally arrived here in Mildura Auntyuta, lovely feeling of sunshine everywhere.

        Peter and I enjoyed very much having our beautiful great-grandson over for a visit together with four female family members. The baby’s father, his uncle and two of his aunts were in Sydney to watch a footie game.
        I did see the lovely photo of your new born granddaughter. What a great Father’s Day gift. Yes, lovely feeling of sunshine in Aussieland for the start of September. Life is good, isn’t it? 🙂

          I agree with you Auntyuta, surrounded by your family and little ones and beautiful weather, certainly makes us feel younger and our days a joy to experience.
          I will never forget this grandaughters birthday as it was 15 minutes before fathers day,
          Cheers and keep smiling girl.

    Quite wonderful, Ian. Love these posts of yours – fabulous. Don’t give up on WP – it will straighten itself out. Where else could we see the world from so many different points of view!

      Thanks Monica for still taking the time to follow my contributions, very disheartened at the moment with wordpress, Ana will be back from Chile next week and I am hoping she can resolve the problem.

        Hello Ian, Take heart – if you are having this problem, most likely tons of others are, too. WP will get it fixed.

      Hi Gislinde, and a beautiful weekend wish for you too.
      My wordpress is still not operating properly and I cant seem to get into friends blogs, if I miss some of your posts its only because of wordpress errors at the moment, I havent forgotten you.

      Hi Sue, it certainly is a beautiful piece of choreography and well put together.
      Hope you are doing well, I still havent been able to rectify my email notifications as yet, they are all turned on but nothing coming through, it annoys me as I am slow in answering blogs and use email so as not to lose anyones blogs.

      Hi Sheila, yes it certainly is a spectacular piece of choreography, glad you enjoyed it.
      At the moment I am not receiving email notifications of blogs, so am late in responding to friends blogs, seems all my notification settings were turned to off, have reset them all but still no email notifications, still trying to fix the problem.
      Hope all is well with you.

    Beautiful piece Ian.

    Thank You!!! 🙂

    Still a bit teary!!! LoL!!!

    I’ve had trouble posting my current blog, but got there eventually! 🙂

    Like you I am tempted to quit blogging.

    This mess has gone on far too long!!! 😦

    God Bless!


    • The Emu

      August 7, 2013 at 11:56 am

      Still up shit creek here Prenin, all notifications by email are turned on but still not getting blogs, cheesing me off as I am getting behind in my friends blogs which I like to keep up with via email.
      Hope all is well with you.

        Hi Ian!

        Yes, I’m having major problems accessing friend’s blogs, even the https:// prefix working only occasionally!!! 😦

        I found out what was going on and it’s a case of one act of evil and a shotgun response instead of dealing with it sensibly.

        The problems could be dealt with in an hour, but for some reason they’ve not been able to remove the blockade on the WordPress Servers by the ISP’s who got the block request from the Internet Watch Foundation.

        Basically we’re screwed until they clean up the mess…

        I’ll continue to use email as a backup, but after three weeks of this mess I’m losing the will to blog…

        God Bless my friend!

        If this doesn’t post I’ll send it by email!!! 🙂

          August 11, 2013 at 5:53 am

          By the sound of it Prenin you are at least getting email notifications, that is what my problem is, I am not getting any email notifications and buggered if I know how to rectify it, my setting are all correct, just wondering if wordpress has changed my email addresss on me, went there and find I cant change my email address or update it, waste of time anyway as its still the bloody same, can you explain who or how a pervert caused this crap.

          • prenin

            August 11, 2013 at 1:11 pm

            Hi Ian! 🙂

            From what I read in the forum, a blogger violated the WordPress Terms of Service (TOS) and was reported to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) who sent out a block list.

            Unfortunately the ISP’s were a bit over enthusiastic and also blocked the WordPress Servers creating the havoc we are seeing! 😦

            There were also other problems relating to Akismet spamming users and the whole system was messed up as a result.

            All I can suggest is that you go to the WordPress forum and report your problems.

            Hopefully they will provide a solution! 🙂

            Now let’s see if this bloody thing will post!!!

            God Bless!

            August 12, 2013 at 9:55 am

            Thanks for the info Prenin, still not having much luck here, I did go to the wordpress forum and put it out there for advice, no responses so far, apart from that it appears there is not much more I can do.
            Ana is back from Chile next Monday so I am hoping she can find a solution, I think when they closed down my email notifications that somehow my email address was affected, find out next week, if you are posting could you let my friends know, Aussie Ian has the same problem and is pissed off to, drowning his sorrows in a few beers.

            Hi Ian! 🙂

            I added your comment about your problems to my blog which will post tomorrow.

            Hopefully my readers will spread the word.

            This is one unbelievable screw-up!!! 😦

            God Bless my friend and have a beer for me!!! 🙂

      Thanks Deb, at the moment I am not getting any email notifications of blogs which is really slowing me down, have rechecked all my settings and I had to reset them, for some reason they were all turned off, but still no blogs, hopefully I will find the problem.
      Hope all is well with you.

    First, glad to hear from you again … finally, Ian … Second, beautiful video clip … Third, I just returned from Europe … glad to be back … o, Canada 🙂 Fourth, don’t forget me, eh? Love always, friend … cat.

      August 5, 2013 at 10:24 am

      Hi Cat, can never forget you, you are a beautiful friend, damn you are a lucky girl Cat, a trip to Europe is in my wildest dreams, ahh Vienna, the home of Strauss, Rome, Prague, Budapest, the river Rhine, hope I can live long enough and win lottery one day to live out my dreams, air filled with love and romance, just a dream I think.
      In the last few weeks WordPress has played havoc with my computer, I no longer get emails notifying of my friends blogs, checked out my settings and they were all set to nil email notifications, I certainly did not do it, so I had to individually reset them all, but still no more email notifications,I like the email notifications because even if I cant make an answer to a blog it is kept in my email for catch up.
      Slowly getting to the stage that I may close my two sites down.
      Keep sweet my beautiful friend.

    Excellent show. Why sadness?

    • The Emu

      August 5, 2013 at 10:50 am

      Greetings my friend, thanks for the visit and comment, I titled that blog sadness for the simple reason it tracks the path of love to marriage and then birth, it ends in a sad note where the father dies in war and the young daughter places the flowers on his grave, well thats the way I read the scenario of the video.
      Wishing you well my friend.

        Hi, Aussie Emu aka Aussie Ian!

        I just looked at the video again. Such a wonderful performance! It was a great pleasure for me to watch. I found the last scene especially moving for yesterday was the birthday of our daughter Gabriele. She would have been 56 years but sadly died on the 15th July of last year. Since she was severely paralysed since her fourth birthday she did against all expectations have a rather long and active life. We are grateful for this. Still her parting was a very sad occasion. Many people remembered her birthday yesterday.

        Thanks, Ian, for sharing this beautiful video.

          Hi Auntyuta, Gabriele lived a long life and bought you much happiness and gave you many cherished memories, its always a sad time when the birthdays of our lost loved ones comes around.
          You were blessed with the wonderful gift of Gabriele Auntyuta.
