Just saying, Editor in shock.........
What a great April. Fantastic weather though a little cool at night we have found it down to 6C in the mornings. 3 public holidays and combined at the same time with the school holidays.
We went to the Bach for Easter and it was sunny every day. Caught our legal limit of 21 snapper with 3 people in the boat. Also caught 4 Trevally which we converted into a batch of raw fish. And we have still got fish fillets in the freezer!
 ANZAC day as we walked though Parnell we wondered why the crowds were walking to the 10am veterans parade? We came home and watched Maori TV and Price William was at the Domain. No wonder there were crowds!
Then dinner out on Tuesday the 30th April. In the process no Rotary for 3 weeks.
But back next Tuesday everyone
So back from great holiday in Mooloolaba, only to have Izzy fall sick on Thursday & then our wonderful school has a "lovely" teacher only day........(worked in my favour this time, so shouldn't complain) Even taught me a few wonderful Mr Google is...... Kids have never in all their young years suffered from earache, so when Izzy had this, I had to google what to do to help....... We had done everything at top of list, but next solution was something warm on the ear. Who knew......& wahoo it worked, until at least the doctors the following day.
Just to add to it, izzy got sick, just as hubby was heading overseas, so timing huh..... So we missed Netball, but soccer on for the weekend........bring it!

Together, we make a difference

We link people to healthy and affordable homes, and the right support services for their health and wellbeing needs. We help people to be contributing members of their communities, good tenants and good neighbours - no matter what service they receive from us.

We couldn’t do this without our strong community relationships with services, organisations and landlords – because together, we make a difference.

Guest Speaker - Wayne Neal
Another great speaker organized by Brett referred by Les
How can we have more energy at the end of day? We have two states relaxed or fight which is the instinct to survive when all our blood flow goes to our muscles and not our vital organs like the brain. We need to be taught to control our emotions and gain inner poise.
The body mind and spirit have 4 states.
Physical    Mental
Spiritual    Emotional
5th Tuesday DINNER
Kisa started the practice if there were 5 Tuesdays in a calendar month we would go out for somewhere different for dinner
The restaurant was chosen by Elaine. It is just down the road from our home and what a culinary delight. Sakebar Nippon Epsom style Japanese Izakaya restaurant
There was Elaine and Morris, Jill, Les and Chris, Kerry and Lina, Edith and I. Great night for traffic jams and no parking. Parked in a 60 minute zone... no ticket.
When you entered the restaurant they played a noisy drum and said welcome in Japanese. You sure knew when the next guest was arriving. No shoes in the dining area. Les as is always prepared with his slip on shoes. Kerry said he was just keeping his seat warm for a year just for Elaine! News … Chris has just retired.
Then the meal was fantastic. We had five dishes. When I came to pay it was only $78 food and wine. I asked them to check that I had not been under charged. Our bill was one of the dearest.
Great company, great night Elaine.
I have today donated $100 to Polio and I challenge the members of District 9920 to do likewise. Every $100 donated is matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and becomes $300 and  the Gates Foundation have committed support up to $50 million per year for the next three years.
And before you read anymore remember that your $100 donation qualifies for a 33% tax rebate! So your net $67 donation generates $300 which is a great return as the global investment in a Polio Free World will reach $40 to $50 billion within the next 20 years.
Select one of the three easy ways to donate -
·        Direct to Peter Wilcocks, District Rotary Foundation Administrator, ph. 027 285 1763
Internet banking account 02-0256-0333474-00. Confirm by email to
·        Clubs with Central Billing can collect the donations from their members, and forward the list of members who donated and one payment from the Club to Peter Wilcocks, see 1 above.
·        At District Conference donate by cash or credit card – forms for receipts will be available.
This email has the full support of DG Ingrid Waugh who has also made her $100 donation.
Finally,  I  wish to personally thank you for your support for this District Giving Challenge.

D9920 District Foundation Chair 2016-2019
