My partner's father died last night.
Tim wasn't rich or famous. I don't think he ever travelled outside
Australia. His closest encounter with communications technology was
the telephone and two-way radio.
He was a true-blue Australian gent, hard-working farmer and respected
father of four.
Even during the most desperate drought, Tim always had a joke or yarn
to share and a mischievous twinkle in his amazing blue eyes.
Life on the land has never been easy but he managed to soldier on
through the toughest of economic and personal times - and help his
neighbours while he was at it.
Whether heading a dingo drive or fighting bush fires, Tim could always
be relied on for commonsense advice and direction.
He had the qualities of all great human beings - integrity, generosity,
honesty, loyalty, compassion, wisdom and a healthy sense of humour.
The world needs more people like Tim. May his proud legacy and stories
live on through "the bush telegraph" and his many friends and family.

Verbal Self Defense
Verbal self-defense is not, as you might think, a collection of
killer smart cracks and strategies for using language to wipe the
floor with your opponents. Instead, learn how to understand what's
really going on, listen instead of leaping to conclusions, and know
how to respond. Remember, hostile language is dangerous to your
health and well-being.
