April is Magazine Month

Today, more than 400 scientists, doctors and technical experts
 from 75 countries launched the Scientific Declaration
 on Polio Eradication.
 The declaration’s launch coincides with the 58th anniversary
 of the announcement of Jonas Salk’s revolutionary polio vaccine.
The world is closer than ever to eradicating polio,
 with just 223 cases in five countries last year.
 To capitalize on this time-limited opportunity to end the disease, 
a wide range of experts have signed the declaration
 to emphasize the achievability of polio eradication 
 a new strategy by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI)
 to reach the end of polio by 2018. 
The scientists and experts signing the declaration include
 Nobel laureates, vaccine and infectious disease experts,
 public health school deans, pediatricians and other health authorities

Photos of loading container 14
 which is 100% for Dili hospital full of medical supplies and equipment. 
Over 2000 bath towel, 600 bed sheets, 10 hospital beds, 400 boxes,
 dental chairs and equipment and over 100 walker frames and supports.
 Loading was made much easier with the help of the South Perth Rotaract
members and students from the Kent Street Residential College.
 West Perth Rotary Club made this container possible by sourcing
 the bulk of the donations and also funding the shipping costs. 
Many of the towels will be cut down to make cloth baby nappies
 which are unavailable in Timor. 
The dental equipment will establish a regional Dental centre in Maubisse 
in the mountains inland from Dili. 
Containers 13 and 14 will arrive in Timor mid April. 
Container 13 is loaded with school supplies for distribution
 in remote villages and schools.
 Container 15 is now being loaded with more schools supplies 
and also lots of bicycles kindly serviced by Dennis Menzies
 and the Como Rotary Club support crew.
 To the kids walking 3 hours to get to school these bicycles are like gold.
Anyone interested to help with loading or support a Timor village
 can call me.

The days were starting to get really frigid,
 so I decided it was time for a new winter coat
. Looking through the racks at the big department store,
 I was surprised they were all so expensive.
 I couldn't remembered when a coat had cost so much.
 I selected one and brought it to the cashier. 
"Coats are really expensive this year!" I commented.
 "That's right," the clerk replied.
 "The manufacturing costs have gone up,
 the trucking costs have gone up, everything has gone up,
 even the goose feathers!"
 "Goose feathers?" I asked.
 "That's right," the clerk replied. 
"Even down is up!"

  1. And, that part of the Waffle Baker does make us happy. So
    in conclusion I will say that there are, like I said earlier, other good and well-known brands out there when it comes for kitchen
    appliances like waffle makers. Parts of the waffle would
    stick to the waffle maker, which would be frustrating for me.
