Need of a picture

This blog is in desperate need of a picture right now

Gallnas Feb 2006

This one is part of a series I call 'Frostflowers' taken within 200 metres of my home. If you want you can view the rest of the series   as part of a MONSTER gallery of 840 pictures.

I have never seen Frostflowers before,nor since.

All this beauty that surrounds us,all the time,always changing........



People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live... [We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born. letter to Otto Juliusburger

the gates to practical compassion

This blog comes to you courtesy of an incredible human tool,an advancement in human progress that I believe is without parallel in human history.

The internet

This also functions for many people with the aid of Microsoft products,which also produce amazing love/hate reactions with some people. Not me I hasten to add.

So a thought to bear in mind about the monolithic Microsoft org is that it's joint founder,Bill Gates and his wife,who run the Gates Foundation, not only made a lot of money from their business endeavours but are now in a scenario that causes them to share their wealth.

Despite the world economic downturn the Gates Foundation is budgeted to spend/allocate $3.8 Billion in this current year in fighting such diseases as malaria.

They are not the only wealthy philanthropists to share their good or well-made fortunes in helping humanity.

We don't have to be rich to share what we have and it's an interesting observation that we all have a compulsion to help others.
