Always awesome.

You might not know that I got appointed as Artist in Residence (well, poet, really) at my alma mater. I'm going to spend six months getting paid a living wage (well, a part-time one) to write poetry.

Workwise, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me ever.

Congratulations Wood, may it go well.

Giving thanks for 6 wonderful months of my little granddaughter's life so far (born December last year). We had half-a-birthday-cake to celebrate. [Yipee]

Also thanks that he will only be "semi-retired" , so we will continue to benefit from his wisdom and experience. [Yipee]

TBTG for a lovely family weekend with my mother the Dowager Mrs S., Miss S. and her fiance, Master S. (newly promoted!) and of course the ever-reliable Mr. S. [Axe murder]

TBTG for all the answered prayers, for all the many blessings. I know things aren't always this blessed, need to remember to thank God now!

Mrs. S, truly blessed [Overused]

Giving *lots* of thanks that Mr B has come home safely today. He's just told me about a very horrible moment on his journey where he completely lost control of the car under braking, and almost hit the central barrier before ending up sideways across the carriageway. Miraculously, everything behind him was able to stop safely, so all is (more or less) well. Scary to hear about, and undoubtedly far more terrifying to be in.

So, yay for his safety, and yay for other people's quick responses and safety too. *phew*

Yay for the European Parliament and the MEPs for chucking out the ACTA.

This overblown legislation, the European equivalent of SOPA, would have tilted the balance of cross-border Intellectual Property law to favour IP rights holders to an even greater extent. It had been put together by the European Commission, prominent IP offices (USA, Japan, Canada, Australia etc) with no consultation with stakeholders on the 'other' side of IP. ACTA had been opposed by Medecin Sans Frontieres on the grounds that it would discourage production of generic drugs and had it not been for the European Parliament God alone knows what restrictions could have been placed on internet use.

This is a victory for ordinary people over those unelected scumbags, the EU commissioners and big business interests.

His current post has been deleted and at the moment he's training someone else to do his job in another location.
So it's a great relief all round - thanks to all who prayed for him.

Mr S. and I intrepidly ran a barbecue for our church's Youth Groups last night. It nearly deafened us - outdoors! - and we were exhausted. Thank you Lord [Axe murder] for all the people who voluntarily give up their time to help these children find direction and worth in their lives (cos I sure as hell couldn't do it!)

Young Master Tor was confirmed by the bishop last night, along with around fifty other children and adults from our deanery.

I have no idea if this is a sign of rude health in the church or not, but we have every reason to be grateful that Master Tor has survived his nearly 13 years on this planet and appears to be growing into a faith of his own.

Thanks for health and happiness, for a recent increase in my disability payments and for summer finally arriving. Thanks for my daughter passing all her exams superbly well, and heading safely towards her second year at uni.

Also thanks that my little nephew, aged 4, had only sprained his wrist rather than broken it *mops brow* [Axe murder]

The food bank Mr. S volunteers at is doing really well - I am amazed at the goodwill demonstrated by ordinary people, for those in desperate need. Someone drove across the city on Friday to bring bags and bags of fresh vegetables from his allotment. Someone else came in to ask what they were short of, then came back with a trolley-load - he'd almost cleared the shelves of that particular item in the local supermarket!

However, it look like he only got it because someone who had arranged a place dependent on grades, failed to get them, which is tough. [Votive]

I agree with Suze achievement being amazing but...

I have a nephew [Eek!]

Even more [Eek!] 'cos 8 months or so ago, they'd just about resigned themselves to the fact that weren't going be able to have children.

He's a wee bit early, and quite small (around 5lb) but I'm told he & Mum are both fine.

That's probably thanks & praise on a number of counts.

I know there are a lot of people who are not fans of Facebook, but Facebook is saving people in the New Orleans area.

Lots of people are logging into Facebook pages of the local mayors and city councilmen and telling where they are trapped on their roofs, helping get people to them to get them to safety. A lot different than Hurricane Katrina, where lives were lost because no one knew where they were.

There is something good to be said about technology.

For the sudden very heavy and quite short-lived hail storm today; and the sun and rainbows following.

Our pastor was at today's meeting which wouldn't be news were it not for the fact that he hasn't attended for about three months. At long last the Dr's have a diagnosis and a prognosis of 'You are ill, but you will recover and you will feel better than before'! I think he has been burning the candle at both ends and he has been warned by his doctor. It won't stop him doing God's work, but it might tell him to stop abusing his own strength.

TBTG and continuing [Votive] to P and his wife, S.

Just a few minutes ago a young man came and fixed the water that was pouring down all the time! Thank you God for getting him to come eventually! Good for me and my neighbours! [Angel] [Overused]

I joined the CSW day of prayer for Youcef Nadarkhani, and was delighted to get this news just now.

Surely worth thanks and praise.
