DIY Ideas Winter School Holidays 2020: Easy To Do Garden Mosaic Pavers Little Hands Can Create + Home DIYer: Simple Concrete Slab  Youngsters love colouring in – a wet day and the pencils and crayons come out, along with the colouring in books, and a happy few hours are spent making favourite characters have blue hair with pink stripes. Winter school holidays will often see many of us resorting to the colouring in books - this year we'd like to share an outdoor colouring in idea. There are plenty of stencils available to download online here - some examples available HERE - but as with all things youngster inspired; why not let them make up their own minds about what they'd like to create? We used concrete pavers that could be installed as a path in the garden

Also this Issue: is that slab you park your car on cracking up? Here's how to relay a small concrete slab, step by step, with photos.

Artist of the Month July 2020: Kevin Murray - photographs and Extract from his book 'And Then My Mother Took Me To Hospital

The Introduction to 'And Then My Mother Took Me to Hospital' reads:

To assist my anticipated failing memory, and to allow me to wallow in a little therapeutic nostalgia, I recently decided to commit to paper some of my early life experiences. In doing so, I was struck with the number of stories that involved misadventure, injury and/or hospitalisation. I appear to have spent a significant part of my youth with various parts of my anatomy swathed in bandages or concealed by plaster. Throw in a few genuine near-death experiences and you can readily understand the inspiration for the title of this collection. 

The following stories are as true as my imperfect recollections allow – apart from the occasional  necessary name changes. While some of these stories end with me being carted off to hospital, all of them reveal a glimpse into a young life that was at times innocent, at other times less so. They tell of a life that was somewhat free and adventurous, unfettered by the fear that comes with age (or by the threats of insurance claims for damages). Some tell of a child growing up in the 50’s and 60’s in Sydney’s expanding suburbia. Some also tell of a slightly older, but not necessarily wiser, “child” still seeking adventure and courting injury well into the 70’s. 

Collector's Corner Pittwater Regatta Air Race Trophies: From 1934 And 1935 and The Pilot Who Saved William Hughes - 10 Year Celebrations

In 2015 a Queensland reader of Pittwater Online News sent in a remarkable photograph of a trophy from the 1935 Pittwater Regatta. The gentleman, Stephen, is an avid Collector of Aviation material and memorabilia and a Member of the Aviation Historical Society of Australia: www.ahsa.org.au, a fantastic society and one of the places visited when researching anything to do with flying in Australia or to find out more about any of Pittwater's several pioneer aviators.

To Stephen's excellent sharing with all two trophies from his Collection of Australian Aviation of those wonderful Pittwater Regattas are added a few insights about them. These early fliers were members of the Aero Club of New South Wales.

Profile Kevin Murray

Some of our residents retire and then do so many other things it becomes obvious that it's great they did retire so all else could be done. Sharing skills learned and giving access to others to a whole wide world of wonderful insights has been the focus of one of our Warriewood residents. A Speaker for U3A Kevin has utilised his knowledge of the online world to be among those now offering Talks Online through Zoom, and even developed a Discussion Group using the same technology. 

Mr. Murray is also a wonderful writer, an extract from his book 'And Then My Mother Took Me to Hospital' features as the July 2020 Artist of the Month and can also be accessed on his website, in full, in a PDF version:  kbmurray.com/Writings. Also featured are some of his wonderful images - Kevin is a great photographer too.

When Kevin was a teacher he was a firm believer in Discovery Learning -  a technique of inquiry-based learning considered a constructivist based approach to education. In many ways he could be considered equally a fan of Lifelong learning - the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated" pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. 

Even now all he does for others not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability. 

Mr. Murray is in fact a Renaissance Man - the notion expressed by one of its most-accomplished representatives, Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72), that “a man can do all things if he will.” The ideal embodied the basic tenets of Renaissance humanism, which considered man and woman is limitless in their capacities for development, and led to the notion that men should try to embrace all knowledge and develop their own capacities as fully as possible.

But where did all that begin? You can read more about Kevin in his Profile of the Week page.

After World War I there were several people who returned from serving on overseas theatres of conflict who had been part of those relatively new-fangled contraptions - flying machines! Although WWI demonstrated conflicts now included war being taken into the air, having long been fought on land and on sea, the use of machines of the air brought with it wonderful possibilities, especially for Australia - isolated by distance from the rest of the world, and even within its realm, isolated by distance once again in the once extreme lengths of time and miles or kilometres to be travelled to get from anywhere to anywhere, especially for our rural Australians. In First to Fly in Australia at North Narrabeen we related how the first personed flights in Australia occurred at North Narrabeen - this is about a few decades on from then when Australians had taken to the skies.
