Happy birthday, Prince George …. he arrived one year ago today!!

Happy Birthday, Prince George!

Will the Wee Royal Be the First King of the 22nd Century?

George’s birth marks only the second time that three generations of direct heirs to the throne are alive at the same time.

He’s stylish, adorable, and credited with bringing public approval of the crown to a new high.
Happy birthday, little prince!

Do you remember where you were when you heard about the death of Diana, Princess of Wales? Do you remember watching the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge? Do you remember the announcement of the latest royal birth?

Every day in the United Kingdom more than 2,000 babies are born — and every one of them will change their parents’ lives. But when Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge took his first breath, at 4:24 p.m. on July 22, the world was waiting. Reporters, photographers, and royalists had been camped outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital for days — the same hospital where Princess Diana had given birth to Prince William 31 years before. The future King of England’s first appearance was little more than a tiny fist, emerging from a cocoon of white blankets. “He has a good pair of lungs on him,” were Prince William’s now-famous words as he stood on the steps of the hospital with his wife and new son.

It’s been a busy year for the third in line to the throne: from that high-profile debut in front of the international media to the christening at St. James’s Palace in October, and his first royal tour of Australia and New Zealand, this baby has captured the hearts and minds of the world.

Ever since his first appearance, retailers have been amazed at the so-called Prince George effect — like his mother, he wields serious fashion clout. It has been called the “golden hem of Windsor”: whatever George or Kate wears instantly sells out. When he left hospital in an aden + anais cotton swaddle with tiny birds on it, there was a 600 percent increase in sales of that baby blanket. It was the same with the Rachel Riley sailboat dungarees he wore in New Zealand and a pair of red-and-white striped dungaree shorts in Australia.

Being heir to the throne, which essentially involves waiting decades for your parent to die, has never been the easiest of public positions. As he reaches the milestone of his first birthday, Prince George is still mercifully unaware of the crown he one day will wear and the historical significance he one day will assume.

It’s impossible to predict when he will become king, or even what kind of United (or disunited) Kingdom he will reign over. As the British national anthem goes, let’s hope it’s “happy and glorious…”

To start the day …. Live without apologizing!!


~~July 22, 2014~~

~Here are the 10 reasons to live without apology~

You will not be missed

Your hormones will thank you

Others will depend on you

You will be confident

You will experience amazing new things

Your patience will run thin for bS

You will motivate others

 You will accept your flaws… and not let it bother you

You will take yourself seriously

You will succeed

BorderCal

Ask anyone how they did it and they’ll tell you the same thing over and over:

Hard Work.

If you’re unwilling to do that, you aren’t living without apology. You’re being small and lazy.

But it will happen when you put in the work everyday and don’t let others convince you to stop. You will someday realize the reason why others are still where they are is because they live with excuses and apology.

What Went Wrong?


Dr. Rex:

“What went wrong?” …. what it the answer to this question? Our world is in turmoil. What when wrong? Priceless!!

I pondered over the weekend about many things.. As I try so hard not to get dragged into the mire of sorrow so many are feeling  around our world right now.. 

I have not much time to post something new, but thought to repost this poem I wrote in 2013.. It occurred to me how often we dwell on all the negative things and we spend far less time focusing on the Good and Inspiring things in Life.. I thought I would share this quote with my poem.

A good reminder to myself also..     

What went Wrong?

What’s wrong with the World Today?

Can you answer me, Can we really say?

What have we lost that each strive to find

Each has the answer’s within their own minds

Society stressed as they bulge with popping pills

Apportioning blame for all of their ills

Working hard they say for…

When elastic bands carry meaning


Dr. Rex:

This is so interesting!! Good thing to keep kids entertained!!

2014-07-22 11.24.11If you haven’t heard of ‘loom bands‘ then this post will be a bit alien to you but trust me, this is a worldwide phenomenon.

My awareness of it started about a month ago when my son kept picking up small elastic bands from school and we neither of us had a clue what they were. Fast forward a few weeks and not only do we now know what they are, we have also been bitten by the bug.

What a simple concept and yet how satisfying it is to loop a bag of small bands into anything ranging from a dress which I believe sold for £170,000, right down to the smallest of rings. It would seem that you are limited only by your imagination and as far as recreation activities go, for those of us who already enjoy crafting, this is right up there.

Until yesterday though, I…

MARRYING Rolling StoneKeith Richards with Aztec Indian percussionists, Mexican horns, an Australian didgeridoo, a Congolese bassist and an array of other talented international musicians may come across as a bit off the wall.

But in the case of the remarkable eight-track album Making The World A Better Place, the experiment is something of a triumph. Hundreds of musicians from 31 countries across six continents have been brought together by Playing For Change, a movement formed in California to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music.

This album is the third such collection recorded in a quest to enhance the cause. In 2005, co-founders Mark…

“All Of The Stars”

It’s just another night and I’m staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star and thought of you
I sang a lullaby by the waterside and knew
If you were here, I’d sing to you

You’re on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
Miles away from seeing you

But I can see the stars from America
I wonder, do you see them too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart on the radio beat
They’re playing “Chasing Cars” and I thought of us
Back to the time you were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love

So I took your hand
Back through lamp-lit streets and dew
Everything led back to you

So can you see the stars over Amsterdam?
Hear the song my heart is beating to

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will leave
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And oh
And oh
And oh whoa
I can see the stars from America
