Turn Anger into Action

Some men are really scared to lose any of their power!

Living on Life's Labyrinth

June 28, 2022

When my husband and I were first married, and he was in medical school, I taught high school English at a large and diverse public high school in Webster Groves, Missouri. That job supported us during those years, but that was in 1971 and my income didn’t make a difference when I applied for a credit card. Only my husband’s income counted, but he didn’t have an income.

In his last year of medical school I was pregnant. Our first child was due in August, which meant I would be able to teach through the end of the school year, and then we would move back to Minnesota where Bruce would be a resident in family practice. He would have an income.

What I didn’t know those first months of my pregnancy was that the superintendent of schools and the principal (both white men) conferred to decide…

Court Again Blocks COVID Vaccine Mandate for Federal Workers

The Most Revolutionary Act

By  Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

The Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal employees will remain blocked until at least September after a federal appeals court on Monday agreed to reconsider its previous decision to reinstate the mandate.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans will revisit its April ruling by a three-judge panel that the administration has the legal authority to require federal employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, The Associated Press reported.

The new injunction will remain until the case can be argued before the full court’s 17 judges. According to The Epoch Times, the court has tentatively scheduled the en banc oral arguments for the week of Sept…

Big Pharma Desperate to Get COVID Shots on Childhood Schedule Before ‘Emergency’ Ends

The Most Revolutionary Act

By  Dr. Joseph Mercola

Once the COVID-19 vaccine is on the childhood vaccination schedule, the vaccine makers are permanently shielded from liability for injuries and deaths that occur in any age group, including adults.

Story at a glance:

  • The rate of COVID-19-associated hospitalization among children aged 5 to 11 is just 0.0008%. In real-world terms, that’s so close to zero you basically cannot lower it any further.
  • Despite that, the vaccine advisory panel — the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) — of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on June 15 unanimously approved granting Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID shots for infants and young children.
  • Pfizer’s EUA is for a three-dose regimen (3-microgram shots) for children 6 months to 5 years old; Moderna’s EUA is for a two-dose regimen (25-microgram shots) for children 6 months to 6 years.
  • In granting this EUA…

September Diary 2021

So far 2 bloggers like this! It was published on my other ‘new’ site on 13 September, 2021. Apparently, we were still in lockdown then!

It is early in the morning again. Maybe nobody is going to read what I write now, but I’ll spend some more time with writing anyhow, meaning, instead of lying in bed a bit longer and thinking about what I experienced during my lifetime and regretting that lying in bed and just thinking about all these things, I can never put it into writing, well, instead of just thinking about it I can get up, sit at the computer when nothing is distracting me that early in the morning, I just write about whatever comes into my head.

So, it is even a bit earlier than what it was yesterday morning, when I started writing my September Diary at 5 o’clock in the morning. So far, nobody commented on this little piece of writing. How do I know, whether it is interesting to other people or not? I just don’t…

Moving out

Berlioz1935's Blog

Our daughter is moving out. She is moving out for years and the process has not ended. It is a piecemeal operation by a thousand cuts. Perhaps it is a friendly departure from childhood and her parents.

The bed, disassembled, is awaiting removal and another slice of her youth will be removed. We, the parents, have to let go. Just another cut.

Over the years the view from her window has changed. Where once we could see the escarpment in the distant there is now a wall of bushes. They form a peaceful, but at the same time restrictive and protective, wall.

Two of her trusted companions of her childhood are looking on and wonder when it will be their turn to leave home and join Caroline.

Perhaps never and they will be part of our new “Quiet Room” we want to establish here. No electronics, not even music :-(…

A quick dollar at Australia’s peril.

Oh, Gerard, all this is endlessly upsetting!
We should really all be thinking about it where we could do better. Despite all of it, I have hope that in future Australia may be doing better. Somehow I have the feeling that a lot of changes are going to come! 🙂

Oosterman Treats Blog

During the sixties and seventies, Australia discovered making free money by selling all our previously held government assets. Government insurances, the post and telegraph, banks, anything that could be sold, electricity, water , you name it and it would turn a dollar . And that wasn’t enough. It was followed by selling the ground underneath us. There were more riches to be made, oil, gas, iron ore, silver gold, coal uranium, titanium and now the richest of them all, lithium.

But what happened to all that money? Where is it now?

Here it is.

1 Gina Rhinehart (mining) $32.64 billion.

2Andrew Forrest (mining) $31.77 billion.

3 Clive Palmer (mining) $ 18.35 Billion.

4 Ivan Glasenberg (mining) $9,10 Billion.

With a looming economic recession rapidly coming over the horizon one wonders if all that wealth in just a few hands could have been better spent or, saved for a rainy day!…

What do I anticipate?

 auntyuta  DiaryLife in AustraliaOld Age  March 17, 2013 1 Minute


Here’s our Buddha. He seems to be happy enough in this wilderness area near our house. Being the 5th Sunday of Lent today, I should have attended Mass. However so far I didn’t go out at all yet. This afternoon we’re off to neighbouring Warrawong to watch Steven Spielberg’s Movie about LINCOLN.

So far so good. I am very happy that I am very much pain-free today. Tomorrow I’ll have to see the doctor about the test results. I anticipate the blood-test is going to show that I am okay.

What else do I anticipate? Well, I anticipate that I’ll probably live for another five or ten years. I also anticipate that I might perhaps even be able to venture on another overseas trip when I am in my eighties!

For next month I anticipate that we’re going to see the family over Easter and that Peter and I are going to enjoy our planned trip to Victoria. The beautiful warm summer weather will be gone by then. However I am looking forward to see a bit of the country side and then be spending a few days with family in Melbourne.

Auntie, Sister. Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Mother and Wife of German Descent I’ve lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it.

  1. likeitiz EditGlad to hear you are out and about. Feel badly about the pain though. I hope you’ll enjoy “Lincoln.” My hubby and I found it quite powerful. Stay well!Reply
    1. auntyuta EditWell, we all have to suffer a bit of pain from time to time. I’m glad I feel better now. I am sure “Lincoln” will be worth watching. Thanks for commenting, Mary-Ann.Reply
      1. auntyuta EditWe’re back from seeing “Lincoln”. This was a movie with heart and soul and a great history lesson. What Lincoln had to say was very significant, even for modern times. I’d like to hear it all over again.
  2. berlioz1935 EditI hope you anticipate that I’m with you all the way. It is important that old people are not lonely. In today’s societies the elderly are often left to their own devices.I’m looking forward to our trip to Mildura and Melbourne. We will see our son and Granddaughter. I did do the same trip more than fifty years ago. What do I anticipate? Change !Reply
    1. auntyuta EditA trip to Mildura after a fifty year absence, Peter? For sure a lot of things will have changed. But maybe some things haven’t changed.?.And don’t forget we are also going to see our son’s extended family in Melbourne. I am so looking forward to seeing our great-granddaughters again. We didn’t see them for one whole year!. And it’s even been longer since we’ve seen the granddaughter who’s coming for a visit to Melbourne at the same time that we’re going to be there. Judging by the pictures she puts always on your face-book, she’s already very grown up and beautiful! When we were in Melbourne more than a year ago we were able to see both our granddaughters there, the daughters of our son. They’re both so very beautiful! And our grandson, the son of our son, he has such a beautiful family. We love them!Our son we haven’t seen for eight months. He came to stay with us for a week when Gaby died. Took the week off work, hired a big enough car to cart the whole family around on frequent trips to Sydney while the memorial for Gaby had to be organized. It will be good to see our son again, who’s birthday is on the 8th of April.Reply
  3. catterel EditNice positive post, Uta – a long and healthy life to you both. I’ve been missing my family back in switzerland – but that’s only a 2-hour flight away! So you have put things into perspective for me, distance is all relative! Thank you.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Cat.Reply
  4. Robert M. Weiss EditUta, good luck with your health, and I hope you achieve your long-range plans. Having positive thoughts, and walking on a daily basis, never hurts.Reply
  5. auntyuta EditThanks, Robert, I’ll keep it in mind!Reply
  6. Three Well Beings EditI certainly hope you’re in excellent health, Uta. Your list of anticipations is wonderful. You have an excellent outlook on life and that should keep you around for a very long time yet! Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Debra, thank you very much! Reply
  7. Island Traveler EditI’m glad you are pain free. I do believe the test results will be okay as well. I hope and pray for your good health my friend and that of your family. Happiness lives in your heart always.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThanks for your prayers and good wishes, dear IT.
      I am very lucky that I have a good dentist and good doctors to look after my health. I feel I have a very good life and am very grateful for this.Reply
  8. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Auntyuta, there is still much to see in our beautiful country, hope you get a chance to see our beautiful Murray river up here in Mildura, the weather is quite mild these days now, Autumn will be on us soon.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditOh yes, Aussieian, I anticipate Peter and I are going to have a wonderful day at your beautiful Murray river. Really looking forward to this! Yesterday we travelled to the western suburbs of Sydney. It felt like a hot summer day!Reply
  9. eof737 EditHe looks serene. Reply
  10. auntyuta EditYes, always, Eliz.Reply
  11. auntyuta EditReblogged this on AuntyUta and commented:This post I published more than six years ago. I anticipated to live probably for another five to ten years. Ah well, I just celebrated my 85th birthday. Now I anticipate that maybe I am going to live four another four or five years! Reply
  12. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Uta, it keeps the heart young, maybe a visit to the beautiful mountain country of Healesville and Marysville will lure you, not far from Melbourne, up in the hills, pristine mountain waters rippling over mountain streams, crisp air invigorating for the lungs and superb rural countryside vista, wherever you go, enjoy.Reply
  13. auntyuta EditIt is 2022 now. In less than three months I am going to be 88.
    Am I going to make it to 90? – And maybe a bit past ninety?
    Who knows! It is possible that old age won’t let me live much longer.
    It might be better for me to die pretty soon before I become too incapacitated. . . .Reply

What Life was like for me and Peter towards the End of 2020

I just try to reblog this post to my other site




A few days ago I thought of Evie’s upcoming third birthday, and I wrote the above in a comment to one of my blogs.

So, Evie’s birthday is going to be on the 13th of September!

And what was Peter’s and my life like in September 2020?

Well, In Australia we have Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September. Our daughter Gaby’s Birthday had been on the 28th of August. In 2020 Peter had baked a cake in memory of Gaby’s Birthday. The Father’s Day in 2020 was on…

A Great Week

I’ve just been reading all this again and think, it is worth reblogging.
It would be nice, if some of my followers would find it interesting too.
I did write this post nearly seven years ago. Have I changed a lot since then? Probably, for my life has changed very much since then, as some of my followers would be only too aware of. Yes, I think my life is very, very different now. But I am now more or less getting used to this different stage in my life! 🙂
So, life is a constant change. This is just what we have to learn to accept! 🙂

Tuesday was the 21st of September, my birthday. I did not only have a Great Day, but also a great week. It reminded me of my 80th birthday in 2014, when I was celebrating for days on end.

I had another look at what I wrote in September of 2014 and 2015, and decided to reblog it, for it was very interesting for me to see all the pictures and what I wrote about my parents. So, I imagine it to be a bit interesting too for some other people to have a look at it. Anyway, I hope so! 🙂

Here is what I posted in 2015:

Last Sunday turned out to be a lovely family day at our home. It was beautiful to be surrounded by children, grand-children, and great grand-children for a few hours in the afternoon. Some almond-cake was left from Gaby’s birthday.There was…
