Well, those of you who know me well, will understand that I rarely mention soccer or even soccer players. Therefore it is with great pleasure that I break my tradition and praise Mr David Beckham for his stunning donation to the Rotary ‘END POLIO NOW’ campaign. David is a UNICEF ambassador and recently shared a […]

Inspiring Idea

GoGetFunding Project.. I like ideas that provide opportunities which give to others, this one recent idea though has a greater twist and it started a couple of days ago when a friend gave me a link to ‘KIVA’ – the site which links prospective funders with micro businesses in areas around the world, facilitating micro […]

Absolutely Brilliant

I have only been a member of Rotary since the start of 2005, although my parents encouraged me to live a life of ‘service above self’ in the community since the mid 1960’s. I have had the privilege of being involved in a ‘Rotary Foundation’ funded program, GSE as a team leader (GSE=Group Study Exchange) […]

WOW! ‘life and death’ projects

20th February 2011 by JimmyMBE No Comments

People were providing overwhekming input and ideas both at the start of life and towards the end of life and after death. The ‘out of the box’ thinking has been classed as refreshing, […]

Phenominal Facts and Opportunities

2nd February 2011 by JimmyMBE 1 Comment

During the past couple of months, family illness caused a focus on each day and brought about an understanding to be prepared for anything. While time passed, simple searches on the web brought about some interesting facts, one from the ‘worldometers’ site ( http://www.worldometers.info ). As I looked at the figures, it dawned on me […]

Well, I guess I thought this was worthy of note, a £20 note at that. I am aware that the text which follows may appear like a series of adverts for those mentioned, that is not the desire within the post – I do wish to recognise the ‘GOOD NEWS’ element and encourage you to […]
