The author was inspired to write ‘Poor Poppy and the Chocolate Man’ to help bring to the attention of all parents the realization that their children can become victims of a pedophile. At the same time she wishes to give the reader an insight into behind the scenes of the unknowing families, the law enforcement’s detectives’ efforts to help stamp out these ever increasing everyday heinous acts of behavior and the recognition for the introduction of harsher sentences.
The author also wishes to state that whilst the Australian Government has apologised to the stolen generation it is her heartfelt wish that through the pages of ‘Poor Poppy and the Chocolate Man’ a sincere apology will reach all of the children who have become victims of a pedophile.
Resolution not Dissolution

Over the past few weeks I have been both revising and proof reading my story “Are we the Aliens?” from my website, created by me back in 1999, and while doing so was jolted by three paragraphs (see below**) which form part of Chapter 3 ‘Thought becomes Matter’. (www.arewethealiens.com)
Although I originally wrote the story more than ten years ago I was taken by the events of the past few weeks and the back to back similarity to my understanding of ‘Thought becomes Matter’. In particular the “Climate Change” debate and the pitiful attempts made by our current Prime Minister to settle the situation in Indonesia with regard to the 78 asylum seekers aboard the Oceanic Viking.*
Kevin Rudd continues to push his idea of an ETS Agreement regardless of who he slurs; it is vital that the current opposition’s recommended changes will not as usual be sold by Rudd as his original plan. It is also to be hoped that it will silence once and for all his continuous praise of himself while at the same time constantly refusing to recognise the instigators of any original source.
The more I read on climate change the more I question the consequence of pollution being a reason for dissolution.
Yes we must continue to convince nations worldwide that the need to reduce carbon emissions is sorely considered necessary, however, selling this need as a means of preventing climate change is not backed worldwide.
“Why I ask must the development of an idea that in the long run could meet the needs of mankind be denied us simply because of those who feel threatened by the thought of its success?”
It is not the need but the idea that we can achieve emission reductions; would not this approach ensure worldwide approval while at the same time render the desired goal needed to secure the greater result?
While our current Prime Minister continues to run our country from the four corners of the earth his ability to be in control is fast becoming a ‘farce’.
To date we have been advised that Rudd:
“Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has announced $18 million for a new Australian International Scholarship program, during a speech at the National University of Singapore.
Mr Rudd is in Singapore with 20 other Pacific rim leaders for this weekend's APEC summit.
After touching down in Singapore from India he announced the scholarship program, which will begin next year, to his university audience.
It will include a category called the Australia Asia Awards for high achieving individuals across Asia to study in Australia.
There is also to be a new Development Awards category for students from developing countries in Asia, which includes 170 additional scholarships.” (3)
This is from the same Prime Minister who has allowed Julia Gillard to waste millions on the supposed 'school package stimulus' while also having not fulfilled the promise to supply computers to all schools for their eligible school aged pupils.
Well that could be it for a while from me; a certain labor backbencher has ordered me back to my place of birth—N.Z. It's a pity Fraser isn't a Kiwi.

**They say that necessity is the mother of invention; however, the greatest invention known to us is the mind of man. His ability to create ideas which in turn have become matter has always led to turning points in history. Without mans curiosity and his desire to create, whether it be a work of art, a lilting melody, a best selling novel or a simple meal to accompany his wine, we would be denied the very joy they afford us. It has been said that anticipation is half the pleasure, then let it also be said that the anticipation of thought turning to matter is the other half.
On the other hand, mention must me made that throughout history there have been times when man has had many of his ideas and inventions rejected the main objection to them being that they have been too radical. When presenting them he has been ridiculed for their design and his efforts to prove their worth have often fallen on deaf ears. History can also show that the progress of man has been hindered and without a doubt taken a step backwards because of the lack of vision shown in those he has sought out in order to obtain their approval. If the original ancestors of man had not been spurred on and encouraged to develop their ideas we would still be waiting for the wheel to be invented. Why I ask must the development of an idea that in the long run could meet the needs of mankind be denied us simply because of those who feel threatened by the thought of its success?
Nevertheless, persistence in seeing an idea through to its final stage has always proved to win out in the end. The determination to explore the various methods towards the final stages of an idea can often take our inspirations to greater heights and render us with more positive results. From a tiny acorn does the oak tree grow and so too can one small idea. It is when we act upon the idea we automatically set in motion the thought that will ultimately be responsible for it becoming matter.
