so love this “living the dream” clip – this man, matt, had a dream to dance around the world. a chewing gum head heard about it and made the dream come true. and the above clip is the reality of the dream and the joy it brings not only to matt, but the people he dances with and the 39 million people who have watched the clip… great reminder to live the dream!

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British Scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the British, in the weeks that followed, a Australian archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: "Australian archaeologists, finding a 200 year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."
One week later. The Hearld reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Orewa, Auckland, Bill, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bill has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, New Zealand had already gone wireless."

had the most delicious czech hot choc on sunday – we dont usually do THINGS on sunday – its church day and family day. we’ve said no to sports teams for my son because they have games on sundays and turned down party invitations. but i got an email from evangeline’s ballet teacher last week to notify us of a sunday practice because of a show they’re doing soon. gutted. what to do. our thing about sunday is that its a day for church and worship and set aside for God, for relaxing and family dinners and things like that. precious, sacred time. anyway i said yes, as a once only thing, and we went. the ballet teacher asked for us parents to go (as there are some talkative distracting parents – NOT me lol) so that she can have a focused session with the girls. i thought about going for a walk, until i stood out in the wind, so retreated to A & J Cafe in the same complex as the ballet studio (at Half Moon Bay Marina). cafes are strangers to me at the moment. i cant really eat anything, and sometimes the hot chocolate has gluten in it. but there i was. alone. with an hour to fill in. luxury. so i braved the lovely barista and told her of my gluten freeness and asked if their hot choc was gluten free. she said to be honest she didnt know, but she could make me a czech hot chocolate. she is czech. its just chocolate and milk. frothed up. you have to do the stirring in of the choc so when it comes to you its white with a smudge of brown at the bottom. but mmmmm amazing. so appreciated it. was nourishment to my soul and such a sunday thing for my heart.
and as always. i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.
