Saving Graces

new mercies each and every day



So I am planning Guide camp for August… horror of horrors what with the economic situation here I have had to charge the girls Z$1,500,000.00 each and I don’t even know if that will be enough. The prices were slashed recently but I can’t find any meat anywhere so I may have to go the black market route which will cost me an arm and a leg, Lord please help me. I also have to do my campers license test again so I’m working real hard on that, as well as my skills levels one to four and I may be nominated for the world board so I have a CV to fashion too, and I want to finish my Protea award even though I am not in South Africa at the moment sondern Zimbabwe… ain’t life grand.

new blog look …. getting there


Kinda… if nothing else i have learnt how to use CSS, and do quite a bit of layout stuff… now to get the colours and fonts just right <sigh>. All part of procrastinating. My studying is not going well at all, I am like two days behind, have to call boss Gibs and tell him i need more time, the study guide is great but it has so much extra stuff that it’s unbelievable… and I have to call the girls and tell them Girl Guides is cancelled this week, and I have to buy me a lunch box… a day in Di’s life <sigh>


Light a Candle

Stopping child abuse is something close to my heart. One thing I will always rally against and be an advocate of. Especially as I work with Girl guides. As such copied this email I got to help even if it’s only in a small way.
The innocent victims of Internet child abuse cannot speak for themselves.  But you can.
With your help, we can eradicate this evil trade.  We do not need your money.
We need you to light a candle of support <>.
We’re aiming to light at least One Million Candles by December 31, 2006.
This petition will be used to encourage governments, politicians, financial institutions, payment organisations, Internet service providers, technology companies and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the commercial viability of online child abuse.
They have the power to work together. You have the power to get them to take action.
Please light your candle at <> or send an email of support to
Together, we can destroy the commercial viability of Internet child abuse sites that are destroying the lives of innocent children.

Kindly forward this email to your friends, relatives and work colleagues so that they can light a candle too.
