The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Second donation from Singapore.

I have received my second donation from Singapore. This is from Lee Li Jen, of Singapore, amounting to 20 US Dollars. Thank you, Li Jen for your kind support.

It is interesting to note that both donations, so far received, have come from Chinese Singaporeans. In notes from both donors, they made it clear to me that they enjoy and value my writing. This is gratifying to learn. It seems that they feel there is some importance to what I write. Thanks for letting me know.

So, Singapore is in the lead by far, compared to all other nations, so far, in this donation drive. I wonder whether any other nation will put in a showing? My intention is to tally up the totals for each nation, at the end of one year, from the start of the drive, to see how each nation compares. Interestingly, Singapore is presently No.1 (where it always likes to be, of course). Thank you to those Singaporeans who have donated.

I will keep you informed as to how it progresses, throughout the year. In the meantime, I will carry on blogging as usual.

It is great to hear you are getting some donations. Your blog is definitely worth it. Unfortunately, I don't have the money at the moment to donate. However, I do wish you luck on your donation drive! :)

Grin... yes we do like to be number one and that's not too difficult when the position can be bought with money. Ironically, there are not many Singaporean blogs that I enjoy reading as much as yours.

May you and your family have a happy and prosperous new year!
