You had me at Free WiFi

For those that know me well or even just follow me on Facebook, you would know that I spend some, if not most of my life in Airports and generally alone. No, I’m not wanting a pity party, I’m a traveller. My life doesn’t consist of home cooked meals and dirty diapers, well not yet anyway!

Heaven is the busiest place on Earth!

We are literally only days into March 2016 and the stairway to Heaven is crowded with fellow loved ones. This is not the cheeriest of topics for my first blog post but it’s something that affects us all and something that is still very raw with me. Almost four year ago, I lost the main man in my life and the one who taught me to blow dry my hair (upside down of course)!

The 91-year-old broadcaster made the comments at the launch of a new TV series Blue Planet II in London, which premieres later this month. Sir David said rising sea temperatures and plastic were what concerned him most after working on the series. Plastic and how it affects our oceans How big is the problem and what can we do about it? "What we're going to do about 1.5 degrees [Celsius] rise in the temperature of the ocean over the next 10 years, I don't know, but we could actually do something about plastic right now," he said. Up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic waste is washed into the ocean each year, according to the research published in the journal Science in 2015. Sir David said "every single one of us" has a responsibility to reduce plastic ending up in the ocean. "We have seen tragedies happen because of the plastic in the ocean," he said. "We've seen albatrosses come back with their belly full of food for their young and nothing in it. The albatross parent has been away for three weeks gathering stuff for her young and what comes out? "What does she give her chick? You think it's going to be squid, but it's plastic. The chick is going to starve and die." According to UNESCO, plastic debris kills more than 1 million seabirds every year, as well as more than 100,000 marine mammals. "It is one world. And it's in our care. For the first time in the history of humanity, for the first time in 500 million years, one species has the future in the palm of its hands. I just hope [humanity] realises that that is the case," Sir David said. "We may think we live a long way from the oceans, but we don't. "What we actually do here, and in the middle of Asia and wherever, has a direct effect on the oceans — and what the oceans do then reflects back on us." Article published by ABC News
