Modern Woman

It's good when 'different' pays a visit.

Today's Gratitude Item: Managing to 'export' my python program (from yesterday) into an .exe file which anyone can use. The actual file / folder package is quite large but it 'works' - have had two of my colleagues give the program a go and they found it useful.

Heart Complications

As in it's a heart - only a bit complicated.

Today's Gratitude Item: Writing my first ever Python program which is actually useful. I now have an easy way to convert .csv files into Moodle friendly .xml files. This is going to save me (and my 'early adopter' colleagues) loads of time.

UN Condemnation

This statement is five days old - wish I'd posted it then, but it's not too late. Suffice it to say, all the anti-Israel rhetoric I'm hearing is getting 'old'.

Today's Gratitude Item: *Finally* locating the image above. It was buried under a bunch of other relevant content. Was worth searching for though.

We Build, They Destroy

Today there were protests in Auckland against Israel's ground offensive in Gaza. The situation there is a tragedy. It is a great pity that the protesters appear to be missing the point - the ground invasion is a direct result of Hamas firing rockets into Israel.

Are these people unaware of the 'terror tunnels' that have been built Hamas?
Do they not realise that Hamas use homes, schools mosques and hospitals to store rockets, rocket launchers and anti-tank missiles?
Are they oblivious to the fact that Hamas tell the civilians in Gaza not to abandon their homes when Israelis warn them that they are planning an attack?

I'm wondering why the protesters, who are so vocal in their opposition to Israel are silent when it comes to the actions of Hamas? Where were these protesters during the Syrian crisis? How is it that they only come out when Israel is under attack?

Here is some food for thought...

Today's Gratitude Item: Reading first hand about what is going on in Israel. My uncle sent through an enlightening / scary email. Happily the family are all OK - despite the rocket attacks.
