Starlink Format Poll
Poll Question

Thank you to those Starlink readers who have taken time to complete our poll about the distribution format for Starlink.

However we've had only a few responses so far, and would prefer a larger sample of votes on which to base our decision.

So if you've not already done so, could you please go to the poll page of our website, read the note and then tick the box. You can also leave a comment if you like.

It will take you only a moment, and we'd really appreciate your input!

Olympic Fever
World globe made of flags

With the 2008 Olympics only days away, we decided to include a few resource links for our readers. You'll find them under "Olympic Fever" on the right.

Whether you're looking for resources for the classroom or simply for your own interest, we hope you'll find something useful among them.

A Little Inspiration

We have three inspirational videos for you this month.

yellow balloon in the sunshine The Secrets of Adulthood lists a few things learned in life - and at the end of the movie, you may also like to check out Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project.

Dreams are Whispers from the Soul is full of beautiful images and inspiring quotations, encouraging us to pursue both purpose and passion in life.

Lastly, the Grumpy Movie, which is a fun (but also thought provoking!) look at how working too hard can affect our moods through the eyes of children.

Just for Fun!

Here's some eggy humour to brighten your day ...

fried egg with cut-out smile

Firstly, for the child in all of us, a collection of wacky (and possibly groan-worthy!) egg jokes.

Second, a mini-movie - the Creme Egg Mouse Trap ... Here today and goo tomorrow! :)

And finally, check out the Creme That Egg video. An amusing example of incredible ingenuity? Or someone with far too much time on his hands? ;)
