    'Feeding' The Soul

    I know the 'soul' is often a very misinterpreted saying, and though I have a feeling that the 'soul' doesn't actually exist I do believe there is 'something' within in us all that makes us true individuals.:idea: I tend to shy away from 'science' at times when I read that a perfectly rational explanation can be used for EVERYTHING in life, I've had way too many experiences to allow science tell me that what I just witnessed was easily explained.:no: 'If' we have a 'soul' 'being' 'thingy' within us what do you do to 'feed' it. Do you walk, jog, read, garden, eat, 'think', or just do what you are doing and go with the flow.:yes: I am a great believer that just to 'go along' with life at times is such a waste, I know everyday mundane stuff often gets in the way, as they should, being a dad and husband I know too well that time is often at a premium and to trouble ourselves with 'naval' gazing can seem not only foolhardy but totally out of place in this day and age.:unsure: But at times we all need a bit of time to ourselves to reflect, think, even rage at times, so other than the 'normal' day to day stuff do you believe that we should take the time to feed our souls (in whichever way you seem happy with) and maybe become a little happier or at times unhappier with our lives? I have a feeling I am over thinking again, :embarrassed::no: it's late, nothing on TV yet and waiting for my eldest to get in. Cheers Tony.

    Serious soul searching!

    Morning all, We have been doing some serious soul searching over the last couple of weeks given the new changes recently announced. Our plan was always that we would be in Australia before our son started secondary school in the UK so he did not get too settled into his routine. He is due to start in September 2010 (Australia would be Jan/Feb 2011). However it would seem now that our plans have been well and truly scuppered. OH and I are both from forces families and OH is himself an ex-soldier and our hope was that Morgan would have a stable secondary education in order to optimise his learning and achievements and make sound friends for life. So what do we do now? If non-CSL SS applicants are not going to be looked at until 2012 then it would seem that our application will be well down the list and it could even be longer than that. I know that it is all a bit up in the air at the moment as no-one is really sure what is going to happen but as far as I am concerned for my son it means that he could potentially be in secondary school here for 2-3 years and then we will uproot him. Not what we wanted at all.:arghh: I am lost as the best way forward. My feeling is that we just forget about the whole thing. If we get state sponsorship great but really what is the point? Sure if we get our visa in 2013 we can have a lovely holiday and validate it and then not have to move for a few more years but will the same passion and want for Australia still be there at that time? I guess that there are a lot more of you feeling like this out there and my thoughts are with you all. If there is one positive thing to come out of this it is that I will get to graduate as a lawyer which I would not if we got to go next year :smile: Sorry for the moan. OH is so laid back he should have been born an australian of that I am sure and he doesn't really understand my concerns. He just says what will be will and to an extent I am with him on that but I guess I am the worrier! Oh well back to the law books. Donna x

  12. Hi everyone! I'm a single mum and hope to move to oz with my now ten year old son! I'm an allied health professional and so need to stay close to hospitals, preferably oncology as that is where I work now. Finding it really hard to sift through so much information! Can anyone give me any advice? My dream would be to live near hospital for work, beach for pleasure, great secondary school for my son to start in, with a great house in a fabulous but not too expensive neighbourhood! Whilst I know this is but a dream, any suggestions on suberbs etc would be fantastic! We don't have any family out here so have no ties location-wise! It will be a great adventure! We do however adore the sunshine so queensland / nsw seems ideal! Looking forward to chatting, thank you inadvance!

    I for one thought this was very sad when I heard, despite some of the things she has done, BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Jade Goody 'has months to live' Dan xx
  16. Reminder that Northern Soul night is THIS Saturday - 21st March. Still free entry!! We'll be at Cushdy, 279a Hindley Street, Adelaide CBD (west end near Gray Street). Doors open 8.00am until late. If you've seen the flyers they say 1am finish but we're licenced until 5am - fancy an impromptu allnighter? Last one dancing gets a free drink on me!! BIG dance floor. The best venue so far. As always, Adelaide Soul City presents the very best in Northern Soul, Motown, 6T's, 7T's and Crossover from Adelaide's best DJ's. Always a great social night - forget the credit crunch and dance away from 8 until late! We've been away far too long - let's get 2009 off to a cracking start. The bigger the numbers and the bigger the drinks order at the bar the better! That way we can keep it free..... Spread the word - keep the faith!

  20. Hi everyone just letting you know about our monthly dance venue where we play nothing but Motown, Soul and Northern Soul. Yep, all the way down to the talc sprinkled on the wooden dance floor! Run by 3 proud Poms and one reluctant Aussie (The missus) our nights are held once per month at the Bayswater RSL in Melbournes South East. Entry is a measly $5 per head and we also run a raffle each night. Many of our patrons are ExPat Brits and we're happy to encourage more to come along and enjoy our evenings. So if your up for a bit of a dance in an atmosphere that promises NO DISCO and definately NO DUFF DUFF music, along with cheap drinks and great company check out our web site www.melbournesoulclub.com for all the info. Our next event is this saturday and then the last Saturday of every month in 2009 (Except April - see web site) If you come along ask to speak to Mick the Mad Pom, I'd love to say hello. Cheers & Merry Christmas to all. Michael 'Mick the Mad Pom' White :biggrinxmas:

The next night is Saturday 21st June, doors open at 8.00am until late, free entry at The Historian on Coromandel Place, Adelaide CBD (between Pirie and Grenfell).

  23. If there are any soulies on this site who don't already know it, there is a good Northern Scene here in Oz. Every city has a soul club (music that is) where all the ex-pats meet. There is a weekend coming up in Sydney. (See the Socialising calander) I used to go to Wigan Casino and have met so many people who I knew there (20 years ago) and we all travel interstate supporting each of the venues every few months. It isn't the beer swilling around the dance floor type of scene. Nor is it a pick up type of scene! But it is a very danceable friendly, sociable scene. If you like old 60ts rare soul music then this is it! If you have never heard of Northern Soul, have a look in Youtube under Northern Soul Dancing and you'll see what it's like.:jiggy: For the soulies amongst us have a look on the website: Home Hope to see some of you there in September. People coming from all states. All ex-pats!
