Yesterday was a 15 hour day for a medical conference, hard day, nice people, they feed me and give me chocolate. Today is a Student Church group they are also very nice (some would say too nice... seriously who is this happy at 6 am on a Sunday) but they are loud.
I am not a religious person, I have been to church a few times as a child and for weddings, funerals and christenings. I don't remember there being rock bands at any of the church services I attended. What's with that?
I think I have worked out why I put off by this group, not the noise (I might just be old) it is that a lot of them have invited me to join them today and listen to the word of GOD. I smile and say thanks, but no thanks, a group of them gave me a sermon on why I should join in their prayers and songs. This is exactly what I don't like about organized religious groups, they all feel the need to convert you. I believe in fate and a higher power, I believe what goes around comes around and I believe you get what you give. These students are passionate and full of love I admire that but please go away and let me 'work'.
I am working on photos from a shoot I did with #2 daughters friend and her boyfriend. I had trouble finding a good location for this idea as the places I liked most were private property. We ended up at a look out on the Landsborough Maleny Road, there was road works on this stretch of road so we had an audience most of the time. The police (after booking someone) sat in their car and watched the whole session. I did wonder if they thought I might make the kids jump over the edge for a 'good' photo. HE HE
Behind the scenes out take
At the risk of over talking about it, my kit kat lasagna recipe had been stolen and used on another website, I don't have a problem with someone using the recipe or even my photo, however I do have a problem with the fact they have copied and pasted my words and my photos. I sent an email to the lady asking her to take it down or remove my photos. No response yet. I guess there is nothing I can really do if she won't. I found my photo on a few web pages doing a Google picture search, a lot of them were linked back to my blog (which explains how it went viral) I will probably do nothing....after all is imitation the highest form of flattery. (Although I am not sure about plagiarism)
Edit.... the post was deleted with apologies :)
Have a great week
