These are just too gorgeous, Annie!! Do you get any of the Somerset magazines for cardmaking and scrapbookmaking? Oh, and don't forget that stamping adds great bits of additional decoration as well. Why do you think I sent you all of those stamps? There's nothing so soothing as plotting and scheming and getting all sticky with glue and bits of paper and fabric and stuff... :-D I really should get back to crafts. I now have a study and play space to do that... Gotta run, off to England tomorrow...taking homework with me, worse luck. Love, Mare

Annie, We'll be out around xmas to see the folks and hang out in Sydney for a little bit. Then We're coming back out for Worldcon in Melbourne next year. :-D I know a heartbreaking case of a writer mother with twin girls: they were both fine up until they had their course of juvenile vaccinations. Lively, active, intelligent. Then they got vaccinated. Lyla is autistic and has not spoken since, but sometimes her behaviour scares her mum something fierce. Grace is the elder and is going to college. Cornelia has written about her journey with an autistic child, and a broken marriage over it to boot. It was in answer to this that comments were posted about other families that were heartbreakingly worse. Sometimes it just comes down to chemical receptors at that age and genetics. One of the reasons that Bob and I are not having kids is the autism risk factor. There's the aberration that my mum warned me about years ago that runs in the Beattie side of the family and how it skips a generation. Bob is borderline ADHD and I'm dyslexic: we didn't want to play with fire. So we play with other people's kids and cats and then give them back. Meanwhile, we morally support our friends whose kids have disabilities the best way we can. If I can find the link to Cornelia's article, I'll pass it along. Hugs and love, Mare

You said it, cuz. However, living in the USA for so long, I'm aware of how mercury added in huge quantities (dangerous to adults) to kids vaccinations over here contributes to the cause of Autism. I'm talking families with four kids who all have Autism, and a mother of twins - one healthy, one autistic who all had the same vaccinations, but something went wrong. I like the odd bit of homeopathy, but I'm not stupid when an infection or virus requires the big guns. Thank god the Aussies have more common sense than some I could name. Hugs, Mare
