Can you tip a winner?

So it has come to this.

The AFL season has been pretty exciting this year and with one round still left to play there are only five of the sixteen clubs who can’t play finals football. The final make up of the top eight won’t be completely decided until the end of next weekend’s final round of games.

In the same way, The Journey Football Tipping Competition is a long way from being over with the final winner set to be decided after the final round.

I reckon the winner could be any of six people out of the seventeen who participated in the competition.

With one round to go Mark Edwards and Shawna are on top of the tipping ladder with 103 correct tips each. I’m amazed to be tied with Andrew on 102 correct tips. In the middle of the season I was so far down the ladder I thought there was no way of coming back. There are also two people tied together on 101 correct tips. Scott Sladen and Geoff are two tips away from the lead but with some good tipping this week either of them could leap from the rest of us to snatch the lead.

I wonder who will grab the inaugural The Journey Football Tipping Competition.

Thumbs Up! Edition Four

Time for Edition Four of Thumbs Up!

Great to see a few more posts this week. Just as I imagined it’s taking a few weeks to get into the rhythm of the weekly editions with some people posting weekly and others contributing every second or third week.

Thanks to everyone who has taken part this time around.

If this is the first you’ve heard of Thumbs Up! and you’re scratching your head wondering what it’s about you can read the details here.

I’ve never been to Queensland but I’ve cycled through many other places in Australia so I know just what Deano’s talking about in his post God’s Own Country at one of my daily reads, My Jarrol Spot.

Something wonderful happened with Thumbs Up! this week. I’ve been reading Cindy Swanson’s posts for years so it was great to have her getting into the Thumbs Up! groove with Thumbs Up! Accentuating the Positive posted at her excellent blog Notes in the Key of Life. She said some wonderful things about Grams from Talk to Grams.

Grams then continued to accentuate the positive by sending us to Shortybears Place with her own wonderful Thumbs Up! post.

Denise at Shortybears Place then sent a big Thumbs Up to Donetta who she says was a real angel to her during recovery from surgery. She tells a bit more of the story in her post Thumbs Up My Turn.

Donetta from A Life Uncommon is thankful for the Thumbs Up! she received from Denise. She says, “What a nice day to get a hug. There are those days when all you can do is keep focus.” Check out her post A Gift from Denise.

Isn’t that incredible? It’s wonderful to see people getting involved by accentuating the positive and great to see a chain begin like that.

Getting away from it all this week is Barbra Sundquist presenting a post about a recent Women’s Retreat at Women’s Retreat Ideas.

Shannon is giving a big Thumbs Up! to Chi Alpha Campus Ministries as he highlights their great influence at his blog Divulgence. Thanks Shannon. Great post.

Romi’s back again highlighting A Leader of Human Rights Education at Romi’s Journal. It’s a wonderful post that’s well worth reading.

Don’t believe everything you hear about ‘young people these days. Apple’s post, Today’s Youth, posted at The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree, gives us an insight into the lives of a couple of young people making a difference.

I don’t think I’ve left anyone out but if you did post a submission this week and you can’t see it here, please email me so that I can add your post. If you missed out on being a part of Thumbs Up! this week, get posting now and submit for next week.
