Edward School may become very famous in the coming days if a video of their staff turning Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ into a song that fits nicely into book week gets picked up the masses.
The song is called ‘Read All Day’ and as you can imagine the song is pretty self explanatory.
The video has it all, teachers and staff miming, reading, skipping, dancing and acting and its actually nicely done and the song recording ain’t that bad too as it is done with quality.
If this video does go viral it is not a bad thing because reading is important and if it makes people think about reading and think about the purpose of Book Week then it is a win.
So do what the song says, read all day and then do it every day.

It is that time of year again when those who love the outdoors have to look up and/or keep their ears open as Magpies are starting to swoop on people around the country.
There were 65 recorded attacks across Australia this time last year and this year alone there have been 206 recorded attacks resulting in 39 injuries.
If you are attacked at all by a Magpie, make sure you sign up to and report the attack at magpiealert.com.
The website has a map showing past attacks across Australia as well as incident reports and even tells users what attacks resulted in injuries or non injuries.
Be safe out there readers.

Readers may recall a time earlier this year that a ghost story was making the rounds in the thumbs up/thumbs down group.
It was quickly revealed to be a widely spun story with names and places changed to suit locals but there is actually a ghost story that happened early on in the local areas history.
It apparently started way back in around 1860, there was reports of a headless horse ridden by a headless horseman in the north of Deniliquin, this was called ‘The Ghost of the Trotting Cob’
It was said that the colt was black but the legs and body were whitewashed whilst the rider was wearing light coloured clothing but had blackened his face and neck and the two were scaring mobs of travelling cattle.
This story was written down in 1933 but it appears the sightings stopped at the time they started as they said 70 years had passed, perhaps it was just a yarn or there was a prankster around causing trouble in the night or perhaps for those who believe a true event.
There’s only 76 days to go until Halloween, perhaps the Trotting Cob will get restless and scare some cattle (or some people).

If you want to see a local gamer doing their thing then consider giving ‘Belcat’ a like or a view.
People who follow Belcat’s Gaming page on Facebook are always kept in the loop on when he’ll be streaming games and when he acquires new gaming hardware to improve the spectacle.
People can also go on Twitter to follow progress but all the action is on Twitch as every couple of nights, viewers can watch all the latest plays of games.
Tonight’s game of choice was Kingdom Hearts 2.5, an excellent choice considering this afternoon and this evening has been rained out.
On this particular night we see that there have been 682 views of the live stream which is a pretty good haul.
The quality of the stream is pretty good with everything easy to see and hear to the point its like watching a movie but then something comes up that reminds you it is a game that you are seeing.
We’ll keep reporting on Belcat’s gaming as news comes to hand.

Cafe Bakery 285 is being listed as a ‘Potential Packed Investment’ according to myrealestatevoice.com.
A 2 minute 22 second video has been made this week telling potential buyers of the leasehold option as well as the potential to take the freehold option of the Cafe that is considered highly profitable and well established.
The ad also says Cafe Bakery 285 is also known for serving the best coffee in town and brings in $480,000 to $500,000 a year and has seating for 50 customers plus a comfortable lounge area.
The ad voice-over gives lots of details such as the above ones and the fact over 10kg of coffee is used per week and the ad even gives ideas for a drive through service at the back as well as other expansion options.
The ad also mentions Cafe Bakery 285’s popularity as a meeting place for clubs and also mentions their catering options.
It is a very nice sales pitch video that oddly hasn’t registered any viewers (that probably will change now) though some may wonder why the start of the video does not mention the name of the business or show the shop front first before starting the photographic tour from the kitchen.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the end and wherever any of the suggestions will come true in the future.
