This information I received from Rotary International
regarding a question I posed to them regarding the new website

Greetings Rotarian Phillip Cordery,
Thank you for contacting Rotary International.

There is no "Member Access" any longer on the website.
  Instead, you simply log in to the website itself,
 and you will have varying levels of access
 depending on your status as a Rotarian 
or any office positions  you hold in your club or district. 
You will need to go to, click "My Rotary,"
 and then "Register/Sign in" if you haven't done so yet.
  Once you sign into the site,
 you should be able to see what you used to see in Member Access
 under the heading "Manage." 
 If you have trouble finding anything specific,
 kindly let us know and we will be happy to help.

I am delighted to be working with the Sydney Host Organizing Committee 
to assist with promotion of the RI 2014 Convention (June 1-4).

Effective communication is the key to every successful Rotary Convention
 and our Sydney Committee has launched ‘The Corroboree’ Newsletter 
which will be published every other month 
with complete coverage of ALL Convention planning and activity.

‘Corroboree’ is an Australian aboriginal word for celebration,
 assembly or sacred function.

Our request is that club presidents  pass the Newsletter
 on to ALL club members via their email connection.

‘The Corroboree’ may be accessed by way of the attached PDF file 
(for those who may wish to download hard copies)
 or via the link
  for those who wish to view same electronically.

I look forward to seeing you all at the Sydney Convention from June 1 – 4, 2014.

Best wishes,

Garry Browne

at Star Swamp

Star Swamp Reserve is a 96-hectare Class A reserve,
 featuring tuart, jarrah, marri and banksia woodlands.
 In this context lupins are an introduced weed 
and one plant can spread 50 or more seeds.
 By eradicating the lupins, 
the local flora has a chance.

Guinea pigs

  Bloke at a horse race whispers to Paddy next to him,
 "Do you want the winner of the next race?"
Paddy replies "No tanks,
 I couldn't keep it,I've only got a small garden."

Paddy and Mick found 2 hand grenades 
and decided to take them to the police station.
Mick, "What if one explodes before we can get there?"
Paddy, “We'll tell a fib and say we only found one!”

A coach load of Paddies on a mystery tour
decided to run a sweepstake to guess where they were going. 
The driver won £52!

Swedish Magican.....funny

In the heyday of the Russian Empire, 
the representatives of monarchy were quite diligent
 in ferreting out any possible source of revenue.
 Naturally, the long-suffering peasantry 
used every mechanism to avoid the tax collectors,
 but sometimes circumstances conspired to defeat
 even the cleverest and most ambitious farmer.

The problem is well illustrated by the fate of one Ivan Sergeivitch, 
who invested a substantial sum of money
 in improving the fertility of his fields.
 As a result, his yields of barley, wheat, and other grains grew apace.

Soon he decided to turn his yield directly into consumer products,
 and he began selling a variety of baked goods,
 such as bread, rolls, and pastries.
 As his income increased, he invested in additional acreage,
 and in turn, in increased sales of his baked goods
. In other words, he became the quintessential capitalist.

As sometimes happens, though,
 his productivity outstripped his ability to sell the finished product,
 and so he resorted to the inevitable:
 He put up signs along the roads advertising his bakery and its goods.

This unfortunate step brought him to the attention of the authorities,
 who imposed a list of punishing taxes
 on his once-thriving operation.

As a neighbor pointed out to the once-again-poor Ivan,
 it was just another reason for the existence of the old Russian proverb:
 "Don't let the tsars get in your ryes."
