The simplicity of my day to day.
This is where I write my thoughts, feelings and my daily trials, tribulations and happy things

* If you were allowed to learn magic, who would you most and least like to have as your mentor: Merlin, Harry Potter, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Sapphire Foxx, Jeannie from 'I Dream of Jeannie," Glinda Witch of the North, or Magical Monkey Max (Andre's cousin)? Explain the whynots and what would be your first magic and what would it be used on?

I’m wondering if this is a trick question. It presumes magic is real and someone can teach it to me.
I wonder what a world with actual magic would be like. I suppose it would depend if it was only available to a few or it was a common commodity. Who would be the few? Those in the prompt’s list? I don’t really trust any of them, especially that Magical Monkey Max. He’s not to be trusted to handle a wand not after… well perhaps I shouldn’t bring that up again?
Gee, the world would be a terrible place to live if everyone was outdoing each other, making spells, disrupting other’s spells etc. No one would ever know what was what!
No thanks I’ll not take up the offer of magic lessons. I’ll stick to slight of hand stuff. You know, the coin in the ear or a good card trick.

* Are the Olympics still a worthwhile event since they are very expensive, have become political, and just benefit a few, if any?

I agree the Olympics are expensive, but you know what? Everything is expensive these days, but few are as worthwhile as a sporting event which brings the whole world together.
So much, time, money and energy is spent on defending our individual countries. Eyeing each other with suspicion, plotting to be the best, to be the first in so many fields of endeavour.
And I guess this goes for sporting endeavours too, but the camaraderie which is shown at the Olympics is so heartening to see. Young people proudly carrying the flags of their countries is so wonderful.
Children who may not show promise academically but are sporty can dream of representing their country one day.
If there is ever going to be world peace we must first show we can compete on the sporting field and still be able to congratulate the victor. Every four years people from all different countries can sit in their lounge rooms and watch with awe as the best of the best show their strength and talent to us all. How wonderful.

* Compare living in downtown, rural or suburbs and which one you'd like and why not the others.

We have the best of worlds regarding the place where we live. Our nearest city is Perth Western Australia, the most isolated city in the world. The city itself is only a 40 minute commute yet my husband and I rarely go there these days. We live in the hills above the city off the main highway to the eastern states. Yet although we live only a short way from the highway our road is quiet, leafy and rural. Our little town of Mundaring has everything we need within walking distance. The public library is a two minute walk from our house. We are surrounded by bush land where we can walk our dog each day. On that walk we encounter many kangaroos, prolific bird life and in the season masses of wildflowers. In fact WA has the most diverse flora in the world. I love where we live and wouldn’t exchange it for anywhere else. If we wish to go to the beach we can be there in half an hour. We have tried inner city living and although it has it’s benefits, the noise level is very off putting to us. We love the sounds of the bandicoots in our garden, the birdsong and the the wind in the trees. Western Australia is the best kept secret in the World.
