Open House Perth Adventures 2014

Ooof, it's been a busy, busy month - but I'm overwhelmingly happy along with "being busy" and it's going to remain that way for a while, I think, because not only did the book funding meet its target (I threw a bunch of thanks online via social media, but in case that was missed - thanks again!) but I'm getting closer to the end of term and have a draft book edited and ready for revisions already!Here's a few photos of what I've been up to over the weekend. This is the annual Open House … [Read more...]

Last Two Days Fundraising For The New Token Skeptic Book!

I'm down to the last two days for the new book fundraiser!Spread the word if you can - just a blogpost, Tweet, a FB post or a Google + can help make it past 50%... or maybe even 60%... ? The whole book is now handed in to Alex, the editor of the new book - I'm now down to a quiet week with sound editing to make the audio version.Let's not forget a cover and a title! I've had two in mind and discovered that one was already used by an author, so that's narrowed it down. I'll be working o … [Read more...]

Water Dowsing And The Head Of Australia’s CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation)??

You might be wondering if it's some kind of joke: He's interested in the development of technology that would make it easier for farmers to dowse or divine for water on their properties."I've seen people do this with close to 80 per cent accuracy and I've no idea how they do it," he said."When I see that as a scientist, it makes me question, 'is there instrumentality that we could create that would enable a machine to find that water?'"I've always wondered whether there's something … [Read more...]

QEDCon Ticket Fundraising At Hayley Steven’s Site

Every year, help is requested for people to attend conferences world-wide - Hayley Stevens once again gives the call to help people attend QEDCon in the UK: Another QEDcon approaches and tickets have gone on sale so I guess it’s that time again. Let’s rally together and buy conference tickets for those who can’t afford them! We’ve done it for *counts on fingers* lots of times now. Yeah…lots of times! (I have genuinely forgotten how many times I’ve done this. I think it is three?) Psst, Hayley, … [Read more...]

The Green Sheep Story (Airplanes And Kids)

Mem Fox Website

I was just having a conversation with @dingram  on Twitter, after Dr Pamela Gay posted a very cool photo of how much legspace she had on a 15+ hr flight. I don't often get that much space to stretch out, but it's fantastic when you do.While I've been chatting with advice about how to handle long-haul flights (which are inevitable for me - I'm in one of the most isolated cities in the world and it's easier to get to Asia than it is to get across the country), I was reminded of the story of the … [Read more...]

Fundraising For The New Token Skeptic Book!

There's some details, of course. You can find them at the IndieGoGo site:I'm the author of one self-published book on skepticism, secularism and atheism, published in 2013, called The Scope Of Skepticism: Interviews, Essays and Observations From the Token Skeptic Podcast . In 2014, I worked on creating the second book, which is still untitled. However, the chapters are written, the book is planned out... and I'd like to make it better than the first book. That's where you come i … [Read more...]

A Bit Of Gratitude Goes A Long Way

lovely stuff

Especially at the end of a tough day, it's the little things that count. So, I'm taking a break over the holidays to count some blessings and get a bit grounded again. Starting with: I had some nice things sent to me that I never had the chance to acknowledge - so thanks to Shelley Segal, First Dog On The Moon and Carbon Dating. I now have to clean my office this coming one-week-of-school-holiday so I can finally frame, pin up and admire from a non-messy-desk some of the following items: And I … [Read more...]
