Farewell OO7 [The spy we loved] 

“Teach love, generosity, good manners and
some of that will drift from the classroom
to the home and who knows,
the children will be educating the parents.”
– Roger Moore [14.10.27 – 23.05.17]



Recipe for a Happy New Year

Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
hate, and jealousy.

Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.

Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty, or
thirty-one different parts,
but don’t make up the whole batch at once.

Mix well into each day one part of faith,
one part of patience, one part of courage,
and one part of work.

faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.

and one good deed.

Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
and a cupful of good humor.

The joy of giving


Give Lavishly! Live Abundantly!
– Helen Steiner Rice

The more you give, the more you get,
The more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you live abundantly –
The more of everything you share,
The more you always have to spare.
The more you love, the more you’ll find
That life is good and friends are kind,
For only what we give away
Enriches us from day to day.
