Hi, I’m Kiera! I’m a home schooling mother of four little boys ….I recently read “Dude, who moved my gum nuts” with my 6 year old. What a delightful story. Actually, it’s not really a story, more of an immersing adventure through the wonderful world of seeds and trees.
“We were lucky enough to trial one of these stories and loved it! It was very informative and so well written. There were pictures for him to look at, links for us to go off and explore and questions for us to share at the end” (Bernice via Kidspot)

This is not a story about John and Paul, nor even Ringo or George.
My beetles are not “The Beatles.”
How I love Google! Let me make that clear at the outset. In the last week of July 2013, I chanced upon a Facebook conversation between parents about the best way to treat gastro with natural remedies, and mention was made of raspberry cordial.
That immediately sparked my memory – Robbie and I always took a small bottle of raspberry cordial with us when we went to Bali – on the specific advice of our GP, Dr. Zeke Pervan. The first time was about twenty years ago and we did it every time we went. While we were careful with our food and drink, we never suffered Bali Belly and always came home with the cordial bottle empty.
Sam (our cleaning lady) was there at the time of the Facebook discovery and we had a fun conversation about old cool drinks and cordials: we remembered “Passiona” when it was made by Cottee’s, recalled Weaver & Lock and talked about “Mexi” cool drinks which were home delivered. The name of who made the specific raspberry cordial escaped us.
Enter Google. Aha! Of course, it was Anchor! [Read more...]
Too many people are looking for a “silver bullet” when it comes to health issues and these are some popular (and unsubstantiated) food myths. Some other widespread beliefs have a sound basis.
1. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day (myth)
This myth is not supported by scientific evidence; originated around the time jogging got to be fashionable and is popular because it is easy to remember.
The Mayo Clinic recommends eight glasses of fluid a day, but the need for water has to be evaluated according to the level of activity and external temperatures. A guideline on the need for fluids [Read more...]
September was definitely a month that needed getting my timing right. Before my six monthly cancer follow-up with the oncologist, I had a series of special blood tests and then an MRI, with dye pumping into my arm while the scanning was happening. These rather intrusive procedures were done in the right sequence, so the reports were ready for my meeting with Dr. Ng. With a sore “mousing” finger, I grabbed a referral from my GP and had an X-Ray done at the same time, so my oncologist could check that out, too. Having had cancer and chemo, you do get a little paranoid from time to time.
On the day, I dressed to the nines in a cream suit and a fabulous pink hat and looked lovely. The scan was clear; the world was bright and when I left the clinic in Subiaco, I set off for the city to explore several of the newly renovated laneways around Murray and King Street s – where little bars are enticing and new experiences await you.
I was excited because I was going to a Social Media event [Read more...]

Recently I attended a full day introductory seminar for a well known marketer, promoting her skills and services in training small business people on getting free publicity through well written Press/Media Releases. With an offer of two tickets for $97 for the day (your lunch was extra) and a great reputation in her industry, I knew there would be an “up-sell” sometime later in the day.
What was I expecting – at this full day seminar?
You would have to be very naive indeed to expect to get all the “secrets” of her extensive experience without having to pay a reasonable price for her services and expertise and the truth is the workbook provided and the discussions during the day gave value far above the initial entry price. I learned some very important information [Read more...]
The Theory and Practice of 50 Minute Sprints
“It’s a must,” said Matt. “If there is no change in what you do, there will be no change in your results. The key is determining: are you reactive or do you plan the work you have to do?”
The keys he said are “research, enquiry, list and plan. The Planner will always finish first.”

The environment is always perfect for business. Why? Uncertainty is always there. You cannot control the environment – the business environment.
What you can control is how you think about it and [Read more...]
