OK, so I was googling size conversion charts for boys' shoes yesterday as I wanted to purhase a pair of runners off of ebay for Master Tomas. The shoes were in European Sizing and I just wanted to make sure I would order the correct size for him. Then, I looked down a couple of linkages...and found this...I kid you not!!! It was just what I wanted to know, yeah riiighht!!! LOL.
I was also googling something else, I cannot recall what it was, and came up with this Online Magazine...Girl Power- Empowering Girls World wide. Not so sure about that. I must say though, what caught my eye on that home page was the book titled, "The Power of Nice"....as opposed to my favourite book, "The Power of Now"(Eckhardt Tolle). It appears, however, that the two books I mention here have very differing concepts. The girlie mag one is saying that being nice pays...you know, just be nice and you will find money, or it will find you. The Power of Now is all about discovery of self and finding your inner peace, which brings about a more harmonious life, in turn affecting others who let you in, in a positive manner.
If you are interested in Architecture then Walking Melbourne is the site to go to. Brought to my attention by Andrew, it captures what everyday people can see around Melbourne and shows the World what fine works the city has. Everyday houses to the House of Parliament with all its fine tile work and intricate lighting out front. Some people walk the road to work and never see the true beauty of what is around them. I drive in to work through North Melbourne and I always take in the lovely old houses with their wrought iron features and detailed paving out front. I once took pictures for someone of the 100 year old wrought iron outer encasement of a public loo...yes, you gotta believe it( lost on old PC harddrive). Above is an image the Victorian Arts Centre- home of the performing arts here in Melbourne. This is where I went to see many a ballet performance over the years. It is as wonderful to see inside the building as it is to see on the outer.
Enough from me, I am off for a quick nap and then to work this afternoon. Have fun being an armchair tourist of Melbourne... or for you boys out there, looking up your ummm...shoe size, hehehe!!!
