    Thanks Fluff!

    I wish everyone more wealth, better health, increased wisdom and more fun than they know what to do with, in 2008. :happydance:

    And I wish everyone less cult-induced bullshit! :thumbsup:

    I wish everyone less invalidation and evaluation during their auditing sessions.

    And I wish that you have plenty of money when the regges call!

    I wish everyone, including their formerly-disconnected-loved-ones, a front row seat (with lots of popcorn) to the Court TV coverage of Scientology's RICO 'case'.

    What a circus that'll be! :)

    What does "Love" mean to 4 - 8 years kids?

    Experts did ask the following question: "what is Love?"

    Answers were more profound than anticipated:

    "Love is the first thing one feels before the bad guy arrives"

    Charles, 5 yrs.

    "When my grandma had arthritis and she was unable to put the nail varnish on her toenails, my grandpa did it for her, even later on when himself he was suffering from arthritis in his hands. That's love"

    Rebecca, 8 yrs.

    "When somebody loves us, he/she says our name differently. One knows our name is safe in his mouth"

    Alain, 4 yrs.

    "Love it's when the girl puts on some parfume and the boy puts on some aftershave lotion and they make it out together to smell each other"

    Martin, 5 yrs.

    "Love it's when you go out for dinner and you give to someone a lot of your chips without asking him/her to give you back"

    Jean, 6 yrs.

    "Love it's when someone hurts you and you're angry but you don't yell so as not make the other one cry"

    Suzanne, 5 yrs.

    "Love is what makes us smile even when we are tired"

    Tim, 4 yrs.

    "Love that's when mom makes coffee for daddy and she tastes it beforehand to be sure it is good"

    Dan, 7 yrs.

    "Love that's home at Xmas time when one stops onwrapping the gifts and one listens"

    Bob, 5 yrs.

    "If you want to try to love you should begin by someone you hate"

    Mika, 6 yrs

    "Love its when an old woman and an old man are still friends even when they know each other very well"

    Tom, 6 yrs.

    "During my piano concert I was on stage and was scared. I looked at everyone who was looking at me and I saw my dad smiling and waving his hand. He was the only one doing so and I wasn't scared anymore"

    Claire, 8 yrs.

    "Love that's when mommy gives daddy the best part of the chicken"

    Hélène, 5 yrs.

    "Love that's when my dog licks my face even when I left him alone all day long"

    Marie-Anne, 4 yrs.

    "One shouldn't say 'I Love You' if it's not true. But if it's true one should say it a lot. People forget"

    Jessica, 8 yrs.

    Simple isn't it....

    Happy New Year full of Love !

    It's been 2008 here now for nearly 11 hours.

    So far it feels exactly the same as 2007.

    I'll let you know if anything changes.:D

    They were amazing.

    I HATE it that Sydney does better fireworks than Melbourne.

    I can't wait until more pictures are released.

    Channel 10 had the best coverage. I loved it when all the red and green went off up the harbour and the finale was superb. Except I was on the phone at the time and trying not to ooh and aaahh into it while trying to give a sensible response to my caller. It was rather funny.
