Sing it loud and proud
Re “Sounds of them” (Oct 10-11), in September last year I attended a school fete at Texas and was lucky enough to meet Josh Arnold and see for myself the inspiration that he gives to school children in the country. They sang with conviction and told us of the merits of their school and community, and it brought tears to my eyes – every child was involved, through all grades, and the enthusiasm was infectious. Keep it up, Josh, we need more people like you.

It is marvellous that pride in being Australian is being expressed in other ways than the sporting arena. Josh Arnold’s involvement in the Small Town Culture project embodies and gives real meaning to our love of this country. It is also the unity of our diversity that has given this love an Australian complexion.

The program that Josh Arnold is rolling out in our rural communities is great. The young kids will get to appreciate their local area. I also see this going one step further, when these young kids spend a bit of time in the cities they may well pass on their appreciation to others, thereby making more people of aware of the country. And another thing, I am just getting to know Windows 10 and the “talking” between my mobile and laptop, and now Rod Chester (“Connect the bots”, Oct 10-11) has suggested more. From TVs to fridges and more, I am not sure if I want that. Call me old-fashioned but I like to do things myself rather than have a “mechanical thing” doing it for me – but I do like gadgets.
