BUT TODAY WE WANT TO USE IT MAINLY TO WRITE A DIARY OF THE LIFE OF A NEW BORN BABY, WHENEVER THERE ARE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT IT. BECAUSE BLOGS NEED TO BE ACTIVE TO ATRACT VISOTORS, WE WILL ALSO WRITE AN OLD MAN LIFE STORY, WHICH ONE DAY COULD BE USED TO COMPARE IT WITH THE NEW BORN BABY, YOU SEE TODAY THINGS CHANGE VERY QUICKLY AND IT COULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE THE GREAT DIFFERENCE LATER. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO COLLECT OTHER LINKS LIKE BABY SONGS TO MAKE IT MORE BABY FRIENDLY.

Have Your Say on Planning Water For the Future.
The angry reaction to the Murray-Darling Basin report recommending better stewardship of that precious river system has the hallmarks of a war against the environment and against those who think current practices are destroying the means of our existence. It is the language of victory and defeat - of protagonists and opponents.
Yet as the smoke rises from the bonfires of the Murray-Darling Basin reports, three of the world's most significant environmental scientists are promoting their prescriptions for a more life-enhancing future. One is Canadian David Suzuki; another is Australian Tim Flannery; and the third, Vandana Shiva, is Indian.
Suzuki's most recent book is Legacy, Flannery has written Here on Earth and Shiva has penned Soil Not Oil.

In response to an Australian journalist's question about the future of the Murray-Darling Basin, Suzuki insists, ''The party's over!'' He says, disbelievingly, ''On the world's driest continent, you even grow and export rice.'' He wants his grandchildren to benefit from better guardianship of the planet and not to be penalised by the greed and selfishness of their grandparents' generation.
Flannery's several theses highlight a process of co-evolution, which should be easily recognised in a country that is home to the oldest living human cultures. The planet can be stable and productive if the human inhabitants learn to live in harmony, not conflict. If ideas of co-operation, altruism and love of all living things are revived, no one need despair.
A distinguished Indian physicist, Shiva is concerned with the plight of the world's poor and with corporations' fossilised ways of thinking.
She recognises the toxic red sludge from the Hungarian aluminium plant that has polluted waterways, destroyed homes and claimed lives - because she has witnessed similar devastation on the subcontinent. ''I have seen the red ponds multiply at Lanjigarh in Orissa, where Vedanta set up an aluminium smelter, where people died or fell ill when they came into contact with the toxic sludge.''
Shiva's alternatives echo those of Suzuki and Flannery: we can continue to exploit and deplete or, as trustees, resolve to conserve, develop and enhance the riches of nature we have inherited. ''We can either keep sleepwalking to extinction,'' she says, ''or wake up to the potential of the planet and of ourselves.''
She is as hopeful as Flannery: ''We can become agents of transformation by recognising that we have the capacity, the energy and the creativity to make the change.''
These three musketeers for the planet advocate not war over development but dialogue for democracy. For Flannery, this means living in harmony to sustain co-evolution. For Shiva, it means a democracy for the earth by conserving irreplaceable ecosystems.
Luckily, the federal parliamentary committee consulting on the merits of the Murray-Darling Basin report is to be chaired by independent MP Tony Windsor, whose negotiation skills suggest he is eminently suited for the task. The committee can take people's anxieties into account, debunk the familiar stereotypes of irrigators, greenies, farmers and conservationists, and reframe key questions.
Dialogue can point the way to sensible conflict resolution, not more preparation for victories and defeats.
Flannery and Shiva soon will present a combined plea for their case to be heard and heeded. Shiva will be the recipient of the 2010 Sydney Peace Prize, awarded for her campaigns to protect subsistence farmers and to empower indigenous women, and for her scientific analysis of environmental sustainability.
Flannery will award that prize to Shiva in Sydney on November 4. The previous evening, in her City of Sydney Peace Prize lecture, Shiva will address the task of ''making peace with the earth'' by creating climate justice that requires commerce to work within laws of ecological sustainability and social justice. Ride on, the three musketeers.
