Review of new CPAP mask

I have spoken before about my sleep apnoea, diagnosed this year. Well, it takes a bit of getting used to and I had trouble with the face mask that I bought initially. It would leave marks on my face, I had problems with it slipping if my face was pushed into the pillow, which meant it leaked; and I had to wear and eye mask, because the outlet valves blew straight in my eyes. I think this is because I had to have a smaller mask, but that meant that the outlets were closer to my eyes. Wearing an eye mask continually was making my eyelashes go all funny, too. Something that is not a bother until you want to put mascara on and all your eyelashes are flattened and curving in.
I researched a little and found the new SleepWeaver cloth mask. I wasn't paid for this review, I just want to put it out there, so if anyone is researching like me, then they have another opinion to add to their list. I purchased my SleepWeaver for $AU 150 from CPAP Australia. It had a money back guarantee so I thought it was worth taking the risk.

Beatrice Munson by Lorena Bathey


I was first introduced to Lorena Bathey's work through Jo-anne from World's of Wonderment. She is a great supporter of Indie authors, and she was kind enough to match up an Indie author with each book blogger, according to our interests. 
When Beatrice Munson moves into this neighborhood she ignites an excitement within the women of suburbia that they forgot they had.  Beatrice awakens them to see the passions and dreams they have given up in this life, which were mostly the things they loved most.  They see they have become settled and suburbanified.

Mozart's Sister


Mozart's Sister takes many liberties with the known story, however, the underlying theme rings true. No matter how gifted or talented Mozart's sister may have been, she would never have been given the encouragement and opportunities that Wolfgang had, because she was a girl.

Stop! I want to get off! - My advice for carers.


When we were teenagers, we went to the show with my parents and Mum decided that she would go on the Ferris Wheel with my brother and I. In those days, the Ferris Wheel didn't have any safety cages, it was just some steel framed seating with wooden benches and a canopy on top. Anyway, we hadn't been on for two minutes, when my Mother had a panic attack. For people watching, it's almost a little comical, but for the person having the panic attack it is horrendous and terrifying. Mum stated yelling to the Ferris Wheel attendant "Stop! I want to get off!", but of course with all the screaming from the other rides, he just kept on going and my brother had to try and calm Mum down. I was a little shaken, because I'm so nervy already and Mum having a full on attack was a bit scary.

10 reasons not to join the Grammar Police.




Yesterday, my sister-in-law bought me this adorable notebook and we had a little giggle, as we both know I like to use full sentences and find it really difficult to use lolspeak and txt speak. But I don't make a habit out of correcting other people's grammar, spelling or pronunciation. The couple of  times you may find me doing so is when other people are being pedantic about language because I always find it ironic that so many of them make mistakes themselves while doing so. Secondly, I sometimes correct my kids. It's an annoying habit left over from when I used to homeschool them.
I mostly use formal language, I had it ingrained in me. But, I don't purport to be any kind of expert, I make mistakes all the time. I also don't expect people to have "essay quality" expression on their blog or social networking. I think it's quite distasteful when I see other people correcting someone's spelling and grammar.  Here's why:

Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn Part 2



So Bella and Edward got married, but did they live happily ever after? Of course not, because the Volturi don't like vampires playing house and drinking animal blood and being all human like. Then there's the problem of the mysterious vampire/human hybrid child, that the Volturi thinks is a child turned vampire (remember that's a no-no - think of poor Kirsten Dunst in Interview with the Vampire). That's something Aro can't resist checking out, and he still wants Alice's power of course. What happens next is awesome. It won't disappoint the fans and it still leaves you shocked and amazed, even if you have read the series books and know the story well.

Perth Fashion Festival 2012

A few weeks back we went to some events for Perth Fashion Festival. When I say "we" I mean Jessi from Jessi in Wonderland and I. I had a very important job, I was umbrella holder and general dogsbody. The weather here has been so changeable, that it can be sunny one minute and raining the next. But since it is spring, PFF have been showcasing swimsuits and summer gear. So if it was a little chilly for us, trying to take some photos for Jessi's blog, then we took a minute to feel bad for the models who were probably freezing, but still kept their gorgeous smiles intact.

The Varieties of Scientific Experience: a personal view of the search for God


By Carl Sagan


First, I’d like to thank Kate for hosting this post on her site, and for her kindness in letting me choose a book of this nature to review. It’s a delicate subject for most of us, believers and non-believers alike, and I would not be doing this review of the book it’s about were this book not of the highest taste on the subject matter.

Leon Stumble's Book of Stupid Fairytales


A few weeks back, we had a little road trip and my sister played this audio book for us called Leon Stumble's Book of Stupid Fairytales by Doug Macleod. It's very funny and I had a good laugh. There's a lot of appeal for boys and my nephew was having a good giggle at some of the absurd retelling.  Leon Stumble is a wannabe writer and he gives his boring stories to Una Spooner to read and asks her to publish them. After all the rejection letters, Leon Stumble submits some fairytales, but changes them slightly. In Leon’s stories, Cinderolla is a robot girl on wheels, and Little Reg Riding Hood is a boy called Reg who designs and makes his own clothes. They are  very silly stories and they will have you in fits of laughter. Leon's girlfriend Cassie (who is secretly a witch) adds a little magic and Leon may just get his stories published after all.

How loud is too loud? What?

Now we have such busy lives, always on the move, more people are discovering the joys of music and audio books that they can listen to while they jog, drive, craft or otherwise multi-task. There are great collections of audio books and music at your local library and they are free to borrow. But with the use of audio material there are always important safety tips to consider.

Welcome to the Local Studies Library...

Perhaps you didn't know that there is more than one type of Library. There are school libraries, public libraries, academic libraries and specialist libraries (such as a Law or Science Library). 
This post is a bit of information about a Local Studies Library in Western Australia. For a list of Local Studies Libraries in your area,  your State Library or Historical Society is a good place to start. Such as this list of Local Studies Libraries in my state:

So who remembers CatDog? My kids would watch this show, and I didn't get it. I mean I'm all for crazy stuff, but how did that thing go to the bathroom? Especially with all the food it used to eat. But then I would remember it's a cartoon. Sigh!

The humble rubber band.

Once you get to my age you can list dozens of uses for everyday objects like the humble rubber band. I have been using them since I was little for so many things. As kids we tied our hair with them (yes I know that's naughty and I don't do it now), my parents would always have to cut the bands out of my hair. We used to make lacky guns with our fingers and get told we would take an eye out. We used them to make flying helicopters, on our braces to straighten our teeth, to wrap up posters, tie bunches of invites together and many more. 
When we were in Thailand we went on a tour to ride  elephants, but while we were there, our guide Annie showed us some of the traditional Thai farming methods, including the rubber industry. Suddenly an object I took for granted, will never be the same.

My busy day starts from the moment I get out of bed. As soon as I go to the bathroom the guinea pigs hear me and start whistling for some food. Once they have grains, grass and greens, then I feed the fish. The chickens have started up by now, scratching and clucking. So I feed them any scraps, check their water and pellets, sometimes give them cracked corn and collect the eggs. Every few days I let them out for a scratch around the yard depending upon what I am doing and what the weather is like.

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James

Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennett; Colin Firth as Mr Darcy; Lyme Park as Pemberley

For the longest time, I avoided Austenesque novels thinking it may spoil my beloved Jane Austen's work. I've never really gotten into fan fiction either. Although I had read I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison.

We're off to see the Wizard...

Last week, thanks to Hoyts and TCM we won free tickets to see The Wizard of Oz (1939), Even  though I saw this movie as a child and  put the video on for my kids to see, it was quite different seeing it on the big screen and as a mature adult. There were many laugh out loud moments and my hubby and one of the kids sitting near us, had a good old belly laugh going on. For me, it was the childlike wonderment of the movies.  It reminded me of when my mother took me to see some of the old movies like Gone with the Wind and My Fair Lady on the big screen. The delightful thing was, that everyone clapped at the end of the movie, like they used to when we were children. Here are a few screen shots and an outfit board for Dorothy that I created on Polyvore.  (P.S. I also spotted some gorgeous items around Dorothy's home in Kansas, that us vintage types would adore. )

Guest post: Once Again from the Land of Fractals by Troythulu

A Word from Kate:

Troythulu and I met through a love of science and skepticism, but we have found a common love of learning (he's more disciplined than me - despite what he says), a love of reading, creative pursuits and cats. Or should that be CATS since they demand the most attention?

A quick word about fractals for the lay person. Remember when you were at school, and graphed an equation? You'd get a line or a curved graph. Well, some equations when graphed produce infinite pictures of repetition. If you tried to do this on paper, you would end up with too many pencil marks and wouldn't be able to see it clearly. Now thanks to computers, you can see all the intricate details. That is a very simple explanation, but I hope you can appreciate the complex maths that goes into making these pictures.

Thanks to my creative friend Troythulu for allowing me to post some of his wonderful images. (Please remember these images belong to him and ask before re-posting and make sure you attribute him.)

This is my parent's cat. Her name is Lady Jane. She is a real lady. When people visit she rarely grants an audience. They aren't worthy of her notice. She's a real beauty and she is so spoiled that if her biscuits have been sitting in the bowl for too long, she demands that her humans stir the biscuits for her, before she will eat them. If the humans don't wake early enough to feed her, she will give them a gentle prod with her paw. She has a special corner in the lounge for her toys with a blanket, a mat, and a basket for her toys. We are truly privileged to share this earth with her.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Have you been to see Snow White and the Huntsman yet? It's visually stunning. I'm thinking of going to see it again while it's still on the big screen. It's by no means a perfect movie, but I still enjoyed it a lot. The DVD comes out in October and I will be buying it for my collection. But I think you need the big screen to get the best effect.

Jigglypuff didn't have a good week. She had to have her flea drops and her worm medicine this week. 
As if that wasn't bad enough she got caught by Starchaser, putting her paw through the cage to hit the guinea pigs and got in trouble. She spent a lot of time moping around and staring in the fish pond remembering the days when she could have caught them. 
In the end I gave her some cheese and that cheered her up a bit. She likes cheese (just like Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Charlaine Harris in Australia & a Giveaway

Sorry I am late with this post, but crazy life took over again :)

My lovely daughter and I raced into the city to see Charlaine Harris on Tuesday Night. I was very excited because I have read all of her Southern Vampire Series books except the last two.
Charlaine did a Q and A where she answered questions about her books and characters including Sookie Stackhouse, Lily Bard, Harper Connelly and Aurora Teagarden. She disappointed a few readers when she said that she didn't have Bill and Eric locked in her basement - only in her mind :)

Picaso to Warhol at the Art Gallery of WA

Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters from The Museum of Modern Art, New York16th June - 3rd Dec 2012 at the Art Gallery of Western Australia
We went to this exhibition a few weeks ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was awed to be standing in front of the likes of Picasso and Jackson Pollock. I was fascinated with seeing an actual Calder Mobile.  There were Mondrian's and Matisse's, as well asJasper Johns.  I was very entertained by the Warhol's - especially the Campbell's soup cans - because of our family name. I came across some other modern artists which I knew very little about, and snapped a couple of photos of works using patchwork and crochet as their themes. All in all, a wonderful exhibition.
