East Sussex reporting ~ On the Groovy Globe Hunt


Julia's birthday is June 6 ~ shown her with best friend for life Annelisa.
What a pair! Happy birthday and best wishes.

Annelisa from Words That Flow in Great Britain has been hot on the trail of peace globes for two days. Instead of leaving a quick comment on each one she visits, she's written a short description of her findings. She even had time to do a special birthday post for her friend, Julia, and write a spectacular poem found HERE called Peace For Children In Our Time. Many thanks to her and others around the world contributing to the hunt. These are her latest scoops on the groovy trail.

That Frolicsome Kid (of Malaysia) - who would believe this amazing post is written by a sixteen year old when English is not his first language?

Now grab a random person and look at his/her reflection in the mirror. Tell me what you see and explain the major similarity you both share.); the enviroment and back to peace again...

You and Annelisa are terrific, Mims. It's an honor to be part of this and to have gotten to "meet" both of you.
