Reading Empathy today (which I discovered via Have Fun Do Good via EducateDeviate), I was particularly struck by Matt's story about Combatants for Peace and determined to share it with the boys when they get home from their weekend away.

The boys and I have had a few discussions about social activism, social justice, community action and individual actions in essential social concerns and I guess they'll also be interested in two other links Tiara mentioned recently:

Victoria Fossil Cave

Touring Victoria Fossil Cave at Naracoorte (on the way back from Woodchester near Adelaide). We were told a lot about how the different rocks are formed, how the fossils came to be there and the history of the caves. I wish I could recall it all more precisely, perhaps a virtual tour would strengthen the memory cells.

Halfway into the cave I realised I'd left the camera in the car - lucky me other Flickrers are better prepared.

If only the holiday at coincided with OzAct's appearance at the cave for a performance of MacBeth - I envy everyone who goes there for it, we're not up for another long drive so soon.
