MEH. Just learnt, my last grand parent, the old digger, WW2 veteran and just a ""Good bloke" of another era just passed away peacefully. He had just hit 90, this photo was taken a few weeks ago.
He's from another era but he knew the importance of biodiversity and our oceans. He proudly displayed the Sea Shepherd flag on his wall and often asked me if we had the whalers on the run. Even as a fisherman in his earlier days he understood the importance of balance and was one of the first in the dromana peninsula to promote catch and release. He also protested on issues where natural growths were being removed for highways and in some ways was an activist but never would have admitted it. May you RIP Gramps.. you deserve it....
@whosay A total success! So we had a successful opening of the @seashepherd HQ today by Alex Cornelissen, @CaptPaulWatson and special guest Rutger Hauer.
The Skype call with Captain Paul was somewhat nerve wrecking for me as that was my job and as we all know technology can be temperamental at best. Thankfully it worked just fine apart from the total crash 5 mins before Paul had to speak. No pressure....Anyway, was wonderful to catch up and meet so many faces I know and have respect for. (Too many to name here!) People put up with my cool Sea Shepherd bow tie, because as well all know, Bow Ties are cool. Gary Stokes (who I must thank for taking the Rutger photos!) kept nagging me where to buy the neck ties, such a groupie. har har We all had a good night and my highlights were meeting everyone, drinking some 18 year old rum and meeting Rutger whom I've always admired plus it's always good to hear from Paul. #RutgerHauer #BladeRunner #SeaShepherd
At the Directors meeting in France Gary Stokes starts negoitations with the IT department about Sea Shepherd Global new Sea Shepherd Dive website. You could say I was choked by stokes!

Sometimes its the small victories that can perk you up.
We had a little victory overnight. X Factor were doing a feature next week on dolphins and we ran a little social media campaign which reached Simon Cowell and he agreed to "pull" this segment from his show.
Minimal Effort, maximum result. Maybe drop by his social pages and offer a thankyou?" - Technical Director, Sea Shepherd Global
Special thank you goes to @donna_ip who pushed this hard and to @theshando #XFactor #XFactorUK #SeaShepherd #simoncowell #simoncowellonline
