Hi beautiful people

This is my new Blog, designed to simply post beautiful, inspiring and awesome reflections, memories, imaginings and things – about our Beautiful World !!

I already have another WordPress blog about Fascinating Animals, but lately I have had an “impulse” or a voice telling me to create this new blog, where I can post about nice things (to me anyway) and not necessarily about Animals.  If you would like to “Like” a post or page on this site, or to leave a comment, you will need to sign in via Facebook or Twitter, or with your WordPress account.   I have chosen this method to prevent spam that the site otherwise receives.

So, welcome to Our Lovely World.

Mitakuye Oyasin – we are all related,

Labyrinth Fountain – Perth, Western Australia

Click on the icon at the bottom right of the video, to see it in full screen.

This $1.3 million water sculpture is the work of Danish artist Jeppe Hein. This interactive, family-friendly attraction features jets of water that shoot into the air to create nine “rooms”. The fountain uses recycled storm water which goes through sand filters and is chlorinated to swimming pool standards – so it’s safe to drink if any gets accidently swallowed! The water feature is in operation daily until 10pm each evening and is lit up at night time.

I am really impressed with this beautiful fountain and think it is fantastic to have water jets in the capital city, for good “feng shui”.  I did try to video it myself during the daylight hours but as my attempt was rather woeful, thought I would leave it at this great night time shot.

OUR LOVELY WORLD – 2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

I just watched “How the Other Half Lives” Series 2 Episode 3 and was so touched by Zofia and Annie Willis.  They are so humble and appreciative of their fortunes / blessings, and so accepting, it reinforced these characteristics to me, as I watched as the Prankard family gave young mother Zofia financial assistance to keep her house, and then helped Zofia to re-start her business.

Armadillo Healthy Creations is now flourishing in Morecambe, U.K.

Visit Zofia’s website here.

I really found Annie a joy – she has such a beautiful happy character and is so very sweet.   Best wishes to Zofia, Annie and to Julia, Simon, Jessica and Jamie, and to Zofia and Annie’s dog companion too.
