Thank you LA and Steve and Roland for your wonderful help and support for this up and down period.. my family is finally safely here... they are recovering from jet lag while I write to you and tell about this wonderful first day... everyone that I want to be here ... and I wonder if Im lucky or just being there for the right decisions to help our family live in this wonderful blessed environment... and then on the beach, we all meet Jesus (hesus)... as he comes by to smile at our prince of Mermaid Beach!! I will download some of my favorite pics of this wonderful day sooon.. the water was the calmest since we arrived and then holding my family when we wake up... and my honey and child arriving at the airport and we both are crying... she really loves me...
and know how I have always been here for her and out little family.. Colin couldnt resist the beach and playing in every hole....

I was crying yesterday with my friend , Brian...sad about our family and how hard it was for my honey to come over ... and sad thinking they weren't coming over for a long while... and now, Lord willing...they will be over just as I wished for me to meet them all in Brisbane...
Im all choked up about it... and so excited that she'll get to meet my neighbors in the wonderful Parthenon and of Mermaid Beach...

talking with my family on skype here at the free internet of Oasis crying in front of shoppers that pass by,
missing my family so much...
Im praying my better half can have enough confidence to take our son to live happily together  in Oz... it could be so easy... I can call the airlines to help her through the various steps of flying internationally....

before u know it, you could be here and I'll be waiting for you to greet u at Brisbane airport!!

then my honey tells me how Colin said he missed me in the ways he suddenly surprises us with remarkably good diction..
so maybe , if we keep praying(a hopeful agnostic way)

Hey it's the best place to wake up early with the surf and sunning coming into my Parthenon apartment! I look out the window and everything is going on~!! one moment all the surf club is below me with the volunteer lifeguards and then the little nippers training to be more comfortable in the rough surf or the surf race is getting started less than 100 meters from the Parthenon... a hop, skip and a jump... and it's like im in a time machine remembering when I was 9 or just 10 frollicking in the ocean mist!

I enjoyed the surf swim race today and seeing where I stood with all the competition!



i am so happy here but it would be even that more wonderful to share the happiness with my family!

G, put ur shirt on!!

where in life do u meet blokes who love pissing contests??? everywhere...
suppose you are a fast swimmer ...
suppose you are tall..
if you're in the ocean
or in a pub...
it's a carnivorous world out there..
so if your good at something... like swimming...\
if they are a shitty swimmer or just to prove to everyone else that they are superior in lifesaving intellect they will look for some way to show it to the others that might be in their pecking order that they are superior to you! so im thinkin', Ive just had my long hard swim with others all watching ,,, a couple laps around buoys way past the last breaks of the surf, nobody will say anything if I go to rinse the sand off my sunglasses.. then I get distracted chatting with the lifeguards on the way back to the tent where my large yellow lifeguard shirt is... maybe only for 30 seconds... when I hear my name mentioned a few times to interupt my palava with the nice lifeguards G, shirt??? and the little bald middle aged instructor p…

 up at 555 after laying in bed for the last 20 minutes not sure if he's sleeping or just wondering about early am carpe dieming!  so it's up with the water boiling on the stovet for his am ritual of  2 liters coffee and 2 bits of delicious herrb from his visit to hippytopia... that lifestyle could still be within his dreams ... a couple months in the hinterlands of this large ancient caldera Mt. Warning , the center of this fertile most inviting valley  perhaps , a trade for a couple of months of beach bumitis??....
and he could make friends among his potentially future tribe expanded into his international 420 club!!

"but most of all believe in urself...within u lies all the magic, hope, love and dreams of tomorrow!" Ron Christian
so it always happens..when u expect some bloke to make a comment they do... some blokes like to use every chance to get up on the pissing contest..all my luck and the instuctor for my bronze shows up in the middle of the morning to …

Is  he becoming a beach hermit/recluse trying to keep a low profile in this little beach community?? where does he  want to go  without feeling guilty(?)
 that he's not already carpe diem ing a gorgeous beautiful day
 to explore
and yet tied in by my guilt... that he should be with his family and what are they doing in this beautiful avo that makes beach bums like myself just take the day off!

right now
desiring to express my thoughts out there to my friends who will listen... of course there is something missing
and right now it's whether to bike over to the oasis shopping center or go for a swim in that gorgeous blue ocean!! with my favorite light blue tropical shirt...
I just went for a swim and put some photos of the recent past... I want to thank again some of my very good friends for all their support.. Im waiting for the half time of my stepson's football game , so I can talk to my son on skyp... amazing how much better I feel after a strong swim and surfing some great waves…

umm... wassup.... gorgeous morning waiting for my water to boil to make the second or 3rd liter of freshly ground coffee for Garvald's cafe on the sea!!

body surfing and swimming out past the break for the thrill and the investment of energy to get out past the last break

When a geology prof at Cortland state couldnt answer a question about Paleontology to read the book!

" WASHINGTON -- George W. Bush, bursting back onto the public scene a little less than two years after he left Washington in disgrace, has come up with the most self-serving answer yet to some of the most persistent questions about the moral and practical failings of his administration: Buy my book!

Bush repeatedly deflected follow-up questions from NBC's Matt Lauer in an interview aired on Monday night, suggesting that more satisfying answers could be found by purchasing his new $35 memoir.
Big surprise: They can't.

After Bush acknowledged that he approved the use of waterboarding -- an interrogation tactic nearly universally considered to be one of the archetypyal forms of torture -- Lauer asked: "Would it be OK for a foreign country to waterboard an American citizen?"

bush's response: "It's all I ask is that people read the book. And they can reach the same conclusion. If they'd have made the same decision I made or not."

After Bush ins…

came 15th in the surf handicap swim race... held back a little in case they add a little time to my handicap..I llike the new director of the race since he calmly explained the system on how they did the races!  The Coolangatta Gold is going on now so I'll be back outside soon!
YEH, just maybe, you all could be watching our little family catch the winning wave on this little community where we all love the same thing!
being close to the sea!!

and at least we can enjoy  this utopia (??)before the repub thugs start WW#3~!

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia -- A leading U.S. senator on defense issues says any military strike on Iran to stop its nuclear program must also strive to take out Iran's military capability.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who sits on the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, said Saturday the U.S. should consider sinking the Iranian navy, destroying its air force and delivering a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard.

He says…
