Can you help, please?

The International Rhino Foundation Blog

Today, we celebrate rhinos – those magnificent, horned beasts that inspire our wonder and touch our hearts. They’re big. They’re old. They lead a fragile existence. And they need us.

Rhinos need a team effort from around the globe to battle poaching, secure habitat, strengthen support for partner nations fighting to save rhinos, and educate people on how they can help. We urge people to join Team Rhino to help execute a game plan that will score wins for the rhino.

One Team, Many Players
The best teams have a great offense and defense. Team Rhino is no different.

Be part of our offense! Our offense includes partners, donors, advocates, zookeepers, and you. They help by donating time and money and sharing information.

On defense, we have the brave ranger protection units, biologists and researchers. They are in the field protecting rhinos and carrying out anti-poaching missions.

Today, we’d like…

This is for Me

So beautiful…

SOCIAL BRIDGE ~ Jean Tubridy connecting with you from Ireland

There’s a family of swans out on the Anne River that I’ve been watching for months now.

The seven cygnets have got very grown up and I know that one of these days they will have flown away. This makes me think of W.B. Yeats’ poetry.

Today, the swans were waiting for me so I clicked record, just in case.

Here’s how they were:

Party Line

I wish…

forget-me-not

still remember the number
on Grandma’s black rotary telephone
(Pershing 7-6552)
and the sound it made
when I dialed;

the breaths between numbers.

Her slender fingers
forming half – circles

calling Safeway
to check the price
of day old bread.

I wish I had the chance now
to roll my eyes
when she asked me
to button my sweater,
hang a basket of clothes
on the line

or sit in Grandpa’s lap
when all the others were playing,
flipping through national geographic
and hearing old war stories

just one more time.

It is his birthday today.

With all this new technology,
do you think there’s a chance
I could face-time Heaven?

Perhaps not worth the $18.

Film Mafia / Movieland

maxresdefault Actually, almost anyone seeing this film does know the story.

**1/2

As I walked out of a general audience screening of Eight Days A Week, I heard a mature gentlemen say to his female companion, “I’m not sure it was worth $18”. That is the across-the-board price Australian cinemas are charging for Ron Howard’s documentary on The Beatles’ touring years, and the patron’s not wrong. There is very little here that was not done better in the epic television documentary The Beatles Anthology (1995) and nothing that will be revelatory to Beatles fans of any level.

What’s being touted is new footage, and there is that. I’d never seen, for example, footage from concerts in Manilla and Tokyo, and that stuff is definitely interesting. Mostly, though, Howard’s troops seem to have found a whole lot of extra footage of young women being hysterical, and that becomes as wearisome as…

When we approached the beautiful Art Deco Regal Theatre building in Subiaco yesterday, we didn’t realize we were going to watch a Broadway-style show whose tours have lasted 25 years!

Nor did we expect the emotional ending where a tribute was paid to all the branches of the armed forces. Audience members were encouraged to stand up to show their current or veteran service ~ although only a few did.

I wish they’d played ‘Don’t Fence Me In’ because it was a favourite of Mum and Dad’s, as well as ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ while thoroughly enjoying every standard they did present.

The audible, collective gasp as the first words of ‘Danny Boy’ were heard, brought tears to many eyes.

Wonderful 1940’s outfits, voices, music and emotion.  Like a huge thank you to all those brave souls~ lest we forget.

The final image of all those Zimmer Frames, numbered and lined up at the door, will never leave me.
