In 2012, the effort to end polio made historic progress. 
The year ended with the fewest wild polio cases,
 in the fewest places ever in history.
 Fewer than 250 cases were reported
 compared to 350,000 cases in 1985 
when Rotary first started this mission. 
The polio vaccine is reaching children in some
 of the most remote regions on earth
. Nearly 430 million children were vaccinated against polio last year.

This video of our Tanzanian group was taken by one of the young ladies 
 who joined us on our  hot air balloon in Africa

Champagne awaited us at the completion of the journey.
  We were then driven to this amazing location in the bush
 and  served a  full English Champagne breakfast on the Serengeti
 The young lady  was so taken by our Aussie  Oy Oy Oy !!!
 that she video’d us singing the Oz Anthem and  promised to put it on U tube!!

No matter how bad you think your life was,
 wake up each day and be thankful for what you have;

Because someone, somewhere is fighting just to survive...



A little boy wants his toy, so he walks up to his mother and says
 "Mom, give me my toy."
 His mother responds by saying, 
"What are the magic words?"
 So the little boy says the magic words 
and his mom gives him his toy.

The next day, the little boy starts kindergarten. 
At snack time, the little boy wants some juice, 
so he walks up to his teacher and asks for a juice box. 
The teacher says 
"What are the magic words?"
 So the little boy says the magic words.
 But the teacher gets upset, 
and calls the little boy's mother and asks her to come in.

When the three of them are sitting in the room together,
 the teacher asks the mother;
 "Have you been teaching your son sarcasm?"

"No," the mother says, "Why, what did he do?"

"Well, he asked for a juicebox," said the teacher,

 "and I asked him to say the magic words, 
and instead of saying please, he said 
'you're thin and you're beautiful.'"
