The Amazing
   Mr. J ON

With recent world events, you may wonder: "What can you do?" As always, you can show KINDNESS. 🙂 Share a compliment, or birthday wish with a loved one. Bake cookies for a neighbour, or randomly buy the next lady in line a coffee. Or, make some ridiculous balloon creations, and surprise your cousin dressed as Spock. (You don't NECESSARILY​ have to do that one...). Background for you: My cousin Kenny Dolomont (a favourite son of North Sydney) has shown this kindness for years, recently winning an HRM Award for Volunteer of the Year. A computer specialist, he's ALWAYS going out of his way for others. He is also a huge Star Trek fan, (hence my surprise pointy-eared Porter's Lake pop-in visit), for his birthday. Y'know, something in Biden's speech yesterday really resonated: "IMAGINE what CHILDREN must be thinking, seeing all this on TV." Yes...indeed. In spite of all the anger and outrage, let's continue to role model kindness for them. Kindness is MAGIC. Together, we can all Live Long and Prosper. #Kindness #Magic #AmazingMisterJ #MisterSpock #LiveLongAndProsper ( ( ( ... See MoreSee Less

You made it through the year! Just like the Magic Silk you see in this video, (which somehow glides THROUGH this solid microphone stand!), YOU also persevered, as you got clean THROUGH all the tough times. Plus, naturally, you still made some new Magic Memories to treasure. Wishing you more Magical and Jolly times in the future, as we all move forward together. Happy New Year! Peace and progress to you, Magic Friends.😀🎩❤🎄👍 ( ( ( ... See MoreSee Less
