Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer.

Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don't know what he looks like but they know his name is John and that he is inside the house. The police bust in on a carpenter, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman all playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they've got their man?

parralell thinking

There is a man who lives on the top floor of a very tall building. Everyday he gets the elevator down to the ground floor to leave the building to go to work. Upon returning from work though, he can only travel half of the distance up riding in the elevator and has to walk the rest of the way up unless it's raining! How can this be?

Spirits of our Ancestors

Spirits of our Ancestors
This painting depicts the “Spirits of our Ancestors“. As we sit by our camp fires at night we would call ancient spirits to join in We tell stories, we play the didgeridoo, and we sing and dance and celebrate our daily health and life. Amongst the flames, the spirits of Our Ancestors are joining in singing and dancing flying around, swirling with the red hot flames of the fire. Back in creation time Baiame created all and placed certain Spirits in every thing and place. He gave Laws to these spirits and each spirit certain powers to make the aboriginal people obey his laws. The spirits were left in places where people and animals came to drink and eat. They were given the power to bring on new life, depending on how the people obeyed Baiame laws.

David Dunn
Born: 1964
Language: WIRADJURI-ENGLISH
Country: Wiradjuri Nation
My Aboriginal name is Gaagang, which means elder brother. I come from a small town 50 miles west of Dubbo called Trangie (in Aboriginal this means quick, intercourse). I use some of the traditional symbols my father and uncles showed me but I try to use my own style. I started painting professionally in 1986, which means I have been painting for nineteen years. I remember drawing and colouring in with my mother and father when I was about five years old. I know the tradition was handed down to me then. My parents are still my inspiration to my works now. I paint from the heart and from the memories of my childhood. I get a lot of enjoyment out painting but the fun part is when I see other people’s expressions while they are viewing one of my works. I also paint from the heart not from a picture. I was told by an Elder from the Warburton community to paint what you feel not what you see.

Aboriginal art INVESTMENTS


Aboriginal art INVESTMENTS


12:54


This scheme is designed to benefit those interested in Art as long-term investment. Authentic Aboriginal art has in the past performed extremely well in comparison to other investments, especially taking into consideration:

Limited availability of Authentic Aboriginal Art from known artists
Wide recognition of Aboriginal art in Australia and abroad
Appeal of art in general as long-term investment
Link to the artist's culture
Possibility of a sound financial return


Why Invest In David Dunn's Art

While investment is an important decision for a number of reasons, David Dunn's art investment packages have a number of important characteristics to consider:

David has a reputation as an artist who has already widely exhibited;
He is recognised as an established artist within the Aboriginal community;
History of sales of pieces similar to those offered is available;
Ability to chose the level of investment required;
Options to add to collection on regular basis at pre-determined price level;
The provenance of the work included in the package is based on photographic evidence and signed certificates;
All work is commissioned, so the investor has a choice of paintings from established traditional series of designs that David paints;
Similar pieces are on display in many locations (see website for details).


Of particular interest to those investing in art as part of their Self-Managed Superannuation Funds is the fact that not only their art value appreciates over time but it can be at the same time consumed. You do not need to wait for the art investment to mature to enjoy the benefits - use it to provide great environment in your office or home*1.


Who Will Benefit

The benefits of investment in David's art are not just the appreciation of investment in value. From sale of investment packages we provide support for various schemes and projects benefiting Aboriginal people - detail can be found on David's website www.daviddunn.com.au

Used Car Sales

It was a small town and the patrolman was making his evening rounds. As he was checking a used car lot, he came upon two little old ladies sitting in a used car. He stopped and asked them why they were sitting there in the car. Were they trying to steal it? "Heavens no, we bought it." "Then why don't you drive it away." "We can't drive." "Then why did you buy it?" "We were told that if we bought a used car here, we'd get screwed, so we're just waiting."

daviddunn.com.au

Have you ever been just sitting there and all of a sudden you feel like doing something nice for someone you care for? THAT'S GOD talking to you through the Holy Spirit. Have you ever been down and out and nobody seems to be around for you to talk to? THAT'S GOD wanting you to talk to Him. Have you ever received something wonderful that you didn't even ask for, like money in the mail, a debt that had mysteriously been cleared, or a coupon to a department store where you had just seen something you needed, but couldn't afford? THAT'S GOD knowing the desires of your heart.. Have you ever been in a situation and you had no clue how it was going to get better, how the hurting would stop, how the pain would ease, but now you look back on it. . THAT'S GOD passing us through tribulation to see a brighter day! Do you think that this e-mail was accidentally sent to you? Keep this going. You have no idea which one of Your e-mail buddies could use a little hope today Dear God.. I know you're watching over me And I'm feeling truly blessed For no matter what I pray for You always know what's best! I have this circle of E-mail friends, Who mean a lot to me; Some days I 'send' and 'send,' At other times, I let them be. I am so blessed to have these friends, with whom I've grown so close; So this little poem I dedicate to them, Because to me they are the 'Most'! When I see each name download, And view the message they've sent; I know they've thought of me that day, And 'well wishes' were their intent. So to you, my friends, I would like to say, thank you for being a part; Of all my daily contacts, This comes right from my heart. God bless you all is my prayer today, I'm honored to call you 'friend'; I pray God will keep you safe

ABORIGINAL ART BY DAVID DUNN


Bullroarer

Bullroarers are ancient aboriginal musical instruments, which make an eerie roaring sound. Bullroarers have accompanied the didgeridoos in initiation ceremonies and in burials to ward off women and children or evil spirits. Aborigines also used it for communication hence the name wife-caller. It consists of a weighted aerofoil (a rectangular slat of wood about 15 cm/6 in to 60 cm/24 in long and about 1.25 cm/0.5 in to 5 cm/2 in wide) whirled rapidly about the head on a long cord to make that deep whirring, roaring noise. The aboriginal art on our bull-roarers represents the local fauna.



This painting is 100% authentic by a very talented aboriginal artist. David’s art is very in style around the planet with contempary and traditional style paintings. David's art speaks for itself will make a great investment in the future. Signed ' David Dunn 07 '©
and all paintings come with a certificate of Authenticity.

Australian Aborigines

Australian Aborigines have been painting the stories of the Dreaming on the walls of caves and rock shelters for at least 60,000 years. For the Aborigines, art was not "art for art's sake". They considered art to be a gift of supernatural power handed down from the Dreamtime ancestors. Nearly all Aboriginal art had a religious connotation, although some paintings were made to depict everyday events such as hunting. These acted as a type of Aboriginal archive. Aboriginal painting had a symbolic significance. Artists painted what was spiritually relevant to them in a particular area of land and to perpetuate their relationships with the Spirit Beings of that area. Aboriginal artists were confined by the subject matter and patterns that were relevant to their social group and ritual occasions. Aboriginal art was also influenced by the nomadic way of life and the materials that were available.

Basic colours used in painting were red from different sources in different areas, yellow from ochre, black from manganese or charcoal, and white from pipeclay or gypsum. Various fixatives were used, such as beeswax and honey, egg yolk, emu fat and tree sap. In more recent times, some Aboriginal artists have adapted non-traditional materials such as canvas and acrylic paint to depict many traditional designs for their own use and for the commercial market. In traditional Aboriginal society, both the making and the viewing of certain motifs and designs were restricted to specific initiated individuals. There was men's art and women's art.

What would you do?....you make the choice.

Don't look for a punchline,there isn't one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have madethe same choice?At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning-disabledchildren, the father of one of the students delivered a speech thatwould never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling theschooland its dedicated staff, he offered a question: "When not interferedwith by outside influences, everything nature does is done withperfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other childrendo.He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the naturalorder of things in my son?" The audience was stilled by thequery.The father continued. "I believe that when a child like Shay,physicallyand mentally handicapped comes into the world, an opportunity torealizetrue human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way otherpeopletreat that child."Then he told the following story:Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knewwere playing baseball. Shay asked, "Do you think they'll let me play?"Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone likeShay on their team, but the father also understood that if his sonwereallowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belongingandsome confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked (notexpecting much ) if Shay could play. The boy looked around forguidanceand said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighthinning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in tobatin the ninth inning."Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, putona team shirt. His Father watched with a small tear in his eye andwarmthin his heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted.In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs butwas still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put onaglove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way,he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field,grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.Inthe bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, withtwo outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base andShay was scheduled to be next at bat.At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance towinthe game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat.. Everyone knew that ahitwas all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold thebatproperly, much less connect with the ball.However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizingthat the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay'slife, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact.The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The game would now be over. The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman's head, out of reach of all team mates. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!" Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled. Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!" Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggl ing to make it to the base. By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball ... The smallest guy on their team who now had is first chance to be the hero for his team. He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head. Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home. All were screaming, "Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay" Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help himturning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third! Shay, run to third!"As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, "Shay, run home! Run home!" Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team."That day", said the father softly with tears now rolling down hisface, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world".Shay didn't make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!AND NOW A LITTLE FOOTNOTE TO THIS STORY: We all send thousands ofjokes through the e-mail without a second thought, but when it comes tosending messages about life choices, people hesitate. The crude, vulgar, and often obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion about decency is too often suppressed in our schools and workplaces. If you're thinking about forwarding this message, chances are that you're probably sorting out the people in your address book who aren't the "appropriate" ones to receive this type of message. Well, the person whosent you this believes that we all can make a difference. We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the "natural order of things." So many seemingly trivial interactions between two people present us with a choice: Do we pass along a little spark of love and humanity or do we pass up those opportunities and leave the world a little bit colder in the process? A wise man once said every society is judged by how it treats it's least fortunate amongst them. You now have two choices: 1. Delete 2. Forward
May your day, be a Shay Day

Indigenous Art Trienniel National Gallery of Australia

CULTURE WARRIORS: National Indigenous Art Triennial
13 October 2007 – 10 February 2008
The National Gallery of Australia is delighted to be holding the inaugural National Indigenous Art Triennial: CULTURE WARRIORS, which will open on 12 October 2007, coinciding with the Gallery’s 25th birthday celebrations and will be on display for four months. This innovative exhibition is expected to become a permanent event in the Australian and international art calendar. Works selected for CULTURE WARRIORS: National Indigenous Art Triennial have been created within the past three years resulting in a highly considered snapshot of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art/cultural practice. Selection by the Curator will be by invitation only.
CULTURE WARRIORS: National Indigenous Art Triennial will include works that represent a diversity of regions throughout Australia with every state and territory represented, and will demonstrate the incredible range of contemporary Indigenous art practice. It will include media encompassing painting on canvas and bark, sculpture, textiles, weaving, new media, photo-media, print-making, and installation work. This will be the first national survey show of contemporary Indigenous art at the National Gallery of Australia since Flash Pictures in 1991. The initiation of this event will enable a far more comprehensive and continuous overview of current Indigenous art practice, every three years, with the focus on a concise survey on individual artists’ works, brought together under a scholarly thematic context.
For the inaugural exhibition thirty-one artists have been selected, with up to five works from each artist. The Gallery anticipates that, as the exhibition is profiling the finest contemporary Indigenous art, works in the exhibition will be acquired for the national collection. Importantly, CULTURE WARRIORS: National Indigenous Art Triennial also coincides with the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum (Aboriginals), whereby the majority of non-Indigenous Australians (90.77%) voted overwhelmingly to include Indigenous Australians on the census to be considered as citizens. It is also the 50th anniversary of NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) and these anniversaries will provide inspiration for the exhibition’s thematic context.
To ensure that each exhibition is dynamic and stimulating a different Indigenous guest curator will curate the Triennial every three years, with the inaugural CULTURE WARRIORS: National Indigenous Art Triennial to be curated by Brenda L Croft, Senior Curator, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, National Gallery of Australia. This major new multi-arts strategic initiative will enable the skills development of Indigenous curators, for whom such opportunities are currently limited. This would allow the Gallery to develop Indigenous curators throughout the country and also eventually invite international Indigenous curators from the Pacific and other regions.
The Triennial will fulfil the need for a fully curated exhibition of outstanding quality that profiles the work of contemporary Indigenous art across Australia. The National Gallery considers it necessary to include such an event on the artistic calendar, considering the few opportunities available to showcase some of Australia’s leading artists, with the demise of contemporary art events such as the Moët et Chandon Fellowship, and Australian Perspecta among others, in the past decade.
International Art Museums have shown incredible interest in contemporary Indigenous art from Australia recently, including in the prestigious Australian Indigenous Art Commission (AIAC) at the new Musée du quai Branly in Paris in June 2006. At present the most widely acknowledged survey of contemporary Indigenous Australian art is the highly popular annual Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award, held at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin each August.
However, the Telstra is not a curated exhibition and generally includes over 100 artists, with no thematic content other than being an annual showcase of works of art by Indigenous artists. Therefore, each National Indigenous Art Triennial will be an important complement to existing annual, biennial and triennial visual arts events. A scholarly full-colour publication will accompany the exhibition and will be a significant publication that will exist independently of the exhibition.
Artists: Vernon AH KEE, Jean Baptiste APUATIMI, Jimmy BAKER, Maringka BAKER, Richard BELL, Jan BILLYCAN, Daniel BOYD, Trevor (Turbo) BROWN, Christine CHRISTOPHERSEN, Destiny DEACON in collaboration with Virginia FRASER, Julie DOWLING, Philip GUDTHAYKUDTHAY, Treahna HAMM, Gordon HOOKEY, Anniebell MARRNGAMARRNGA, John MAWURNDJUL, Ricky MAYNARD, Danie MELLOR, Lofty Bardayal NADJAMERREK, Doreen REID NAKAMARRA, Dennis NONA, Arthur Koo’ekka PAMBEGAN Jnr, Christopher PEASE, Shane PICKETT, Elaine RUSSELL, Christian THOMPSON, Judy WATSON, HJ WEDGE, Owen YALANDJA, Gulumbu YUNUPINGU.

THE AGED

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, "How old was your husband?" "98," she replied. "Two years older than me." "So you're 96," the undertaker commented. She responded, "Hardly worth going home, is it?" _________________________________ Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: "And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?" the reporter asked. She simply replied, "No peer pressure." _______________________________ The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs. __________________________________________________________ I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license. ________________________________ I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over. _______________________________ An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and told her preacher she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart. "Wal-Mart?" the preacher exclaimed. "Why Wal-Mart?" "Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week." ____________________________________________________________ My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be. ________________________________ Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out. _______________________________ It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker. ______________________________ These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says, "For fast relief." ______________________________ Remember: You don't stop laughing because you grow old, You grow old because you stop laughing. ________________________________ --- THE SENILITY PRAYER : Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference. ______________________________________________________________ Now, I think you're supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others. Oh heck, give it to a bunch of your friends if you can remember who they are!

Acrylic on Canvas, unframed

2007
This paintings depicts the Spirits of the fires swirling and whirling amongst the flames and ambers of the fires. This painting tells the story about the bushfires that swept through the dry lands of Australia. The Spirits are protecting the People, the firefighters, the land and animals from the fire. These Spirits are good spirits. Back in creation time Baiame created all and placed certain Spirits in every thing and place. He gave Laws to these spirits and each spirit certain powers to make the aboriginal people obey his laws. The spirits were left in places where people and animals came to drink and eat. They were given the power to bring on new life, depending on how the people obeyed Baiame laws. The three circles joined by squiggly lines represent the three rivers of the "Wiradjuri Nation", The Wambool (Macquarie), Kalar (Lachlan) and Murrumbidgerie (Murrumbidgee).©
