In the (local) news

Principle 8: Integrate rather than segregate

We were in the news twice this week, local acknowledgement for our achievements at the GreenSmart awards and for running a tour for the Seymour Garden Club.

There is something deeply rewarding about being recognised for our efforts, especially locally - by the people that we bump into around town. When I met the postie at our mail box the other day he asked me how we went at the awards in Sydney, we had a bit of a chat about what we were doing. It lit up my day. Nice to know that people care, reminding me that we are all human, not just strangers going about our business.

Something that I have found when appearing in the local news is that there always seems to be something in the article that's NQR (not quite right).

I didn't realise that our house was so clean!?! The owner-builder function - a BBQ.
After reading this my neighbour asked if we had a daughter... Kai is our son.
