- Producer28/06/2016What has the Royal Flying Doctor Service in common with beBee?When I was a young fella in tartan territory, way before I moved to the land of milk and honey down under, I already knew much about Australia from the movies, the radio (no TV back in the early fifties) and my grandma, who had sailed there and...

We had neighbors who lived in Australia and New Zealand during the winter. I guess they had a Kiwi Farm in New Zealand.29/10/2016 #30 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI loved reading this again @Ken Boddie, glad @Deb 🐝 Helfrich repopulated it too. I think beBee will leave a long, lasting legacy as you referred to above. I see more and more people 'buzzing' about how much they love this platform, how kind others are and tolerant! Not to mention, we have a plethora of information and diverse articles to choose from. Now, back to Aberdeen... I still want to visit Scotland and even the Land of Oz one day!! I have a friend on Instagram posting photos of Australia quite frequently, and it's just beautiful. Then with @Lance 🐝 Scoular doing his live buzzes from there (and snapchats, which are really cool), love them. He's got snapchat mastered, I have no clue how to use it well.29/10/2016 #28 Deb 🐝 HelfrichGeez, @Ken Boddie, you had a much better/broader education than I did. I don't remember learning anything 'officially' about Australia, apart from why it was founded. So this is a great little piece of information to stumble upon.
I think this is a cracking metaphor for beBee, first of all, in the inter-connectivity and broad reach depicted in the footprint and then most importantly in that both organizations are built to serve people in their own ways.02/07/2016 #21 Ken Boddie#19 @Dale Masters, although I have the greatest respect for beBee as a longtem leader and survivor of social media platforms, I certainly wont be relying on any social medium for preserving my writings. How about hiring a stone mason and converting them to tablets for posterity? 😃02/07/2016 #19 Dale Masters#10 I have often thought of writing an historical autobiography to be passed down to my great-great-grandchildren and my cousins' children as well. It's one way of preserving REAL history...as well as a way to give them a glimpse into the tumultuous time period we're now living through.01/07/2016 #16 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#14 So nice of you to say @Ken Boddie! I wonder if your cousins in Aberdeen are related to mine? I think I shared once that my Grandfather grew up in Aberdeen and moved to the Shetland Isles when he met my grandmother. My dad was born in Scotland. I used to pen with my cousin for years and suddenly I lost track of her when I was in my 30's. I have no clue how to find her now, maybe your cousins can help me with that lol!
