HISTORY
WWW.CELEBRATELIVINGHISTORY.COM.AU
Howdy Folks! I hope you have been doing well during these difficult
times, who would have thought 2020 would be such a full on
rollercoaster! I ache for simple joys such as flying up to the Gold
Coast one of my favourite places in the world.
I've been lucky enough to work with Griffith University intern Kiara
Blinco who has written some amazing stories for the Celebrate Living
History website. I always feel so happy to work with students and see
them connect with a senior to tell their story.
As usual lockdown does not stop me from reaching huge goals, over
the past two years I have been writing my next book Diaries of a
Casual Worker which was mainly written on my mobile phone during
early morning commutes to work!
I write about all the casual jobs I have done over the years which
involves many diverse industries including event management,
aged care, camp counselor and of course the very start of
Celebrate Living History! I have a publisher and have a tentative
release date for November 2020.
Keep Safe and Dream Big! Till next time!

As a university student in my final year, I have to take on the
scary decision of where I want to start my career. Celebrate
Living History intrigued me for a number of reasons but
specifically because of its inclusivity. The thought of bringing
stories to life from people who may not have had a chance to
previously is exciting and rewarding. I used to work in a
pharmacy and now I’m at a call centre so I come across people
from all walks of life. There’s no denying that elderly people
are wise and have so much to offer.
Who is an older person that you admire and why?
My pop, Daryl Blinco, is one inspiring person who makes me
believe this internship is even more worth it as I’d love to tell
his story. He is the kindest and hardest working man I know
who has worked his whole life supporting his wife and three
children and has never expected anything in return.
If you could jump into a time machine what era would you
visit and why?
I could jump in a time machine and go back to any moment in
time I would honestly just choose the 1970’s. The time when
my parents were born. So I could see how my grandparents
lived and everything they had to strive for to get to where they
are now. I also wouldn’t mind going back to about 5BC to see
how true any of the biblical stories are but that’s a whole other
conversation

Judy Luxton, a former Olympian, says she owes it to her
childhood passion of swimming for all of her success today.
Judy was raised in Brisbane and was never far from the water. Her
father and grandfather owned a boat so there was no hesitation
in learning to swim at a young age. While it was her family that
encouraged her to swim, she said it was always a thrill.It wasn’t
until Judy was 10 years old that she consistently started placing
first and second in her swimming races that her public-school
teacher suggested she seek out a career in competitive swimming
and get a coach.Joe King became Judy’s coach throughout her
childhood years. “He was a very good coach, he was an amateur
coach as he actually couldn’t swim but he knew what to look for,”
says Judy.Judy Luxton, 2013, walked the great wall of China to
raise money for Mater Little Miracles.
As Judy got more popular, professionals would ask to be her
coach. “I had many different people come to my parents to try
and coach me, but I said no”. It was the unique bond with her and
Mr. King that proved successful in supporting Judy’s training.
Judy was only 13 when her gruelling hard work paid off. A scout
for the Olympics recognised her sheer talent and selected her for
the 1972 Olympics. Just four months later, once she turned 14,
she was training to compete in Germany for the Australian
swimming team.
Sport motivates you in all
avenues of life
Written by KIARA BLINCO
The furthest she had gone to participate
in swimming was Hobart, Tasmania for
a national swimming event. But never
overseas.It was late August of 1972
when Judy had to grow up very fast
during her first Olympic event in
Munich. She was selected to do
breaststroke as part of the team,
competing in the 100M and the 200M
breaststroke events. As a young girl, the
experience was different but it set her
up to compete in the 1976 Olympics in
Montreal, Quebec. The Australian
nationals were also considered trials for
the Olympics. “I wanted to do well,
really well,” says Judy.
Because of this determination, she
managed to be the fifth person in
Australia to swim the 400M individual
medley in under five minutes, which
helped her get selected for the 1976
Olympic events.With the help of Mr.
King, Judy placed highly in all of her
races affording her multiple first,
second and third place titles.After her
participation in the Olympics and the
success that came with it, Judy was
motivated to gain a bachelor’s degree
and move her career forward.
Unfortunately, in Australia at the time,
Universities did not offer sport-based
scholarships. So, she took her studies
overseas.
“It’s a good feeling when you win, so I
wanted to win more”. Her ambitions
prompted her to successfully achieving
a swimming scholarship at Stanford
University in California where she
joined their swim team.
After a year in the United States, with a
different coach, this marked the end of
her swimming career.“The coach in
Stanford was not the same as what I
had, I felt I didn’t swim as well as I
could have and because of that, I lost
my motivation,” Mrs. Luxton said.
P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R . S M I T H

It was after her year abroad that made her realise she
could do more with her skills. “I feel sorry for people
who can’t get away from their sport. It gives you a
sort of adrenaline but at some point, you need to
further benefit yourself and use what you’ve learnt to
explore other avenues”.Judy took this as an
opportunity to obtain a degree so she could be a
sociologist. She assisted people with debilitating
conditions, such as cardiac-arrest victims, to get fit
and healthy again.
Following this same health and fitness profession,
Judy went to the Institution of Sport to get back to
her roots and become a swim coach. Here she spent
four years before moving to the recruitment side of
the medical and sales industry where she stayed for
the following years.It was ultimately Judy’s
childhood in competitive swimming that gave her the
motivation and persistence to be such a hard
worker.Judy now has her own business named Japan
Holidays where she would send Australians overseas
to experience the world, plan people’s holidays and
escort some tours.Judy says Japan impressed her so
much that she and her partner decided to build a
company based around their passion and love for
Japan.Judy believes her experience in competitive
swimming, and all the quirks that came along with it,
gave her the skills to make it where she is today.“Not
only was it the discipline and focus you get from
sport, but it was meeting the queen and visiting
schools for inspirational talks that gave me the social
and strategic skills needed for business,” says Judy.
Judy was happy that she could eventually move away
from her childhood sport and instead utilise the skills
she gained from sport to benefit herself and further
her career.“Life comes together a lot of the time
when you realise the skills you have through sport”,
Mrs. Luxton said. This mindset after being an
Olympian has opened up many doors for Judy
throughout her life.Swimming will always play an
important role in Judy’s life. Every morning she takes
time out to swim at her local pool. And this simple
move motivates her to start the day with a passion
for taking on everyday life.

Meet Simona Graszl who captures the first
year of a newborn baby's life
What are some of the struggles you have faced starting
your own business?
I jumped into starting a business with no business
background. I consider myself an artist, so when I first
started, I had no idea how to run a business. Over the years I
came to the realisation, that the business side is just as
important as the art. I thought that just because I take great
photographs people will be lining up in front of my door.
After the first few months bookings have gone, it was a
wakeup call I need to start learning how to market myself. I
also ran into lots of people, who just because I was a young
and small business owner tried to take advantage of my
services and willingness to get my name out there. After
those first years of mistakes, I am much more aware if a
situation feels already compromising from the beginning.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Stop caring about what people think! Speak your mind and
stand up for yourself. All throughout my school years, I was
bullied a lot. I went to eight different schools in the 12 years
of my scholar years. Lots of times my classmates would make
me cry and I would just shy away from responding to their
criticism.As soon as I stood up for myself and was firm in the
person I was, they stopped. I wish I would’ve started that
earlier. Maybe then I didn’t have to switch school so often.
Also I would probably tell myself not to give up so easily. It
takes time for the hard work to pay off.

Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Sift self-raising flour into a large
bowl.
Step 2 Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture
resembles breadcrumbs.
Step 3 Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a
flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more
milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently
until smooth (don't knead dough too much or scones will be
tough).
Step 4 Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour.
Step 5 Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter)
round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out
remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm
apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25
minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack.
Serve warm with jam and cream.

  • 1. CELEBRATE LIVING HISTORY WWW.CELEBRATELIVINGHISTORY.COM.AU Howdy Folks! I hope you have been doing well during these difficult times, who would have thought 2020 would be such a full on rollercoaster! I ache for simple joys such as flying up to the Gold Coast one of my favourite places in the world. I've been lucky enough to work with Griffith University intern Kiara Blinco who has written some amazing stories for the Celebrate Living History website. I always feel so happy to work with students and see them connect with a senior to tell their story. As usual lockdown does not stop me from reaching huge goals, over the past two years I have been writing my next book Diaries of a Casual Worker which was mainly written on my mobile phone during early morning commutes to work! I write about all the casual jobs I have done over the years which involves many diverse industries including event management, aged care, camp counselor and of course the very start of Celebrate Living History! I have a publisher and have a tentative release date for November 2020. Keep Safe and Dream Big! Till next time!

  • 2. As a university student in my final year, I have to take on the scary decision of where I want to start my career. Celebrate Living History intrigued me for a number of reasons but specifically because of its inclusivity. The thought of bringing stories to life from people who may not have had a chance to previously is exciting and rewarding. I used to work in a pharmacy and now I’m at a call centre so I come across people from all walks of life. There’s no denying that elderly people are wise and have so much to offer. Who is an older person that you admire and why? My pop, Daryl Blinco, is one inspiring person who makes me believe this internship is even more worth it as I’d love to tell his story. He is the kindest and hardest working man I know who has worked his whole life supporting his wife and three children and has never expected anything in return. If you could jump into a time machine what era would you visit and why? I could jump in a time machine and go back to any moment in time I would honestly just choose the 1970’s. The time when my parents were born. So I could see how my grandparents lived and everything they had to strive for to get to where they are now. I also wouldn’t mind going back to about 5BC to see how true any of the biblical stories are but that’s a whole other conversation Meet Kiara Blinco What attracts you about being an intern at Celebrate Living History? Meet Christelle Tait who is founder of natural skin care company botanicES What motivates you to keeo working after 60? My partner Hendrik and I started our business after 60, in order to be challenged to learn new skills and to make a contribution to our economy by supporting various manufacturers and providing jobs. I love the interaction with our customers and their great feedback about how botanicES has changed their lives as well as dealing with various stockists and their supporting staff. What advice would you give to the younger generation? Enjoy the freedom of being digitally savvy. The world is your oyster, you just need to find your niche and persevere. Do not give up easily, you have your whole life ahead of you. Christelle is one of 51 entrepreneurs interviewed as part of Celebrate Living History's publication Entrepreneurs: Generations Apart which can be purchased on Amazon. P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R .

  • 3. Judy Luxton, a former Olympian, says she owes it to her childhood passion of swimming for all of her success today. Judy was raised in Brisbane and was never far from the water. Her father and grandfather owned a boat so there was no hesitation in learning to swim at a young age. While it was her family that encouraged her to swim, she said it was always a thrill.It wasn’t until Judy was 10 years old that she consistently started placing first and second in her swimming races that her public-school teacher suggested she seek out a career in competitive swimming and get a coach.Joe King became Judy’s coach throughout her childhood years. “He was a very good coach, he was an amateur coach as he actually couldn’t swim but he knew what to look for,” says Judy.Judy Luxton, 2013, walked the great wall of China to raise money for Mater Little Miracles. As Judy got more popular, professionals would ask to be her coach. “I had many different people come to my parents to try and coach me, but I said no”. It was the unique bond with her and Mr. King that proved successful in supporting Judy’s training. Judy was only 13 when her gruelling hard work paid off. A scout for the Olympics recognised her sheer talent and selected her for the 1972 Olympics. Just four months later, once she turned 14, she was training to compete in Germany for the Australian swimming team. Sport motivates you in all avenues of life Written by KIARA BLINCO The furthest she had gone to participate in swimming was Hobart, Tasmania for a national swimming event. But never overseas.It was late August of 1972 when Judy had to grow up very fast during her first Olympic event in Munich. She was selected to do breaststroke as part of the team, competing in the 100M and the 200M breaststroke events. As a young girl, the experience was different but it set her up to compete in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, Quebec. The Australian nationals were also considered trials for the Olympics. “I wanted to do well, really well,” says Judy. Because of this determination, she managed to be the fifth person in Australia to swim the 400M individual medley in under five minutes, which helped her get selected for the 1976 Olympic events.With the help of Mr. King, Judy placed highly in all of her races affording her multiple first, second and third place titles.After her participation in the Olympics and the success that came with it, Judy was motivated to gain a bachelor’s degree and move her career forward. Unfortunately, in Australia at the time, Universities did not offer sport-based scholarships. So, she took her studies overseas. “It’s a good feeling when you win, so I wanted to win more”. Her ambitions prompted her to successfully achieving a swimming scholarship at Stanford University in California where she joined their swim team. After a year in the United States, with a different coach, this marked the end of her swimming career.“The coach in Stanford was not the same as what I had, I felt I didn’t swim as well as I could have and because of that, I lost my motivation,” Mrs. Luxton said.

  • 4. It was after her year abroad that made her realise she could do more with her skills. “I feel sorry for people who can’t get away from their sport. It gives you a sort of adrenaline but at some point, you need to further benefit yourself and use what you’ve learnt to explore other avenues”.Judy took this as an opportunity to obtain a degree so she could be a sociologist. She assisted people with debilitating conditions, such as cardiac-arrest victims, to get fit and healthy again. Following this same health and fitness profession, Judy went to the Institution of Sport to get back to her roots and become a swim coach. Here she spent four years before moving to the recruitment side of the medical and sales industry where she stayed for the following years.It was ultimately Judy’s childhood in competitive swimming that gave her the motivation and persistence to be such a hard worker.Judy now has her own business named Japan Holidays where she would send Australians overseas to experience the world, plan people’s holidays and escort some tours.Judy says Japan impressed her so much that she and her partner decided to build a company based around their passion and love for Japan.Judy believes her experience in competitive swimming, and all the quirks that came along with it, gave her the skills to make it where she is today.“Not only was it the discipline and focus you get from sport, but it was meeting the queen and visiting schools for inspirational talks that gave me the social and strategic skills needed for business,” says Judy. Judy was happy that she could eventually move away from her childhood sport and instead utilise the skills she gained from sport to benefit herself and further her career.“Life comes together a lot of the time when you realise the skills you have through sport”, Mrs. Luxton said. This mindset after being an Olympian has opened up many doors for Judy throughout her life.Swimming will always play an important role in Judy’s life. Every morning she takes time out to swim at her local pool. And this simple move motivates her to start the day with a passion for taking on everyday life. P H O T O B Y M A R T I N R .

  • 5. Meet Simona Graszl who captures the first year of a newborn baby's life What are some of the struggles you have faced starting your own business? I jumped into starting a business with no business background. I consider myself an artist, so when I first started, I had no idea how to run a business. Over the years I came to the realisation, that the business side is just as important as the art. I thought that just because I take great photographs people will be lining up in front of my door. After the first few months bookings have gone, it was a wakeup call I need to start learning how to market myself. I also ran into lots of people, who just because I was a young and small business owner tried to take advantage of my services and willingness to get my name out there. After those first years of mistakes, I am much more aware if a situation feels already compromising from the beginning. What advice would you give to your younger self? Stop caring about what people think! Speak your mind and stand up for yourself. All throughout my school years, I was bullied a lot. I went to eight different schools in the 12 years of my scholar years. Lots of times my classmates would make me cry and I would just shy away from responding to their criticism.As soon as I stood up for myself and was firm in the person I was, they stopped. I wish I would’ve started that earlier. Maybe then I didn’t have to switch school so often. Also I would probably tell myself not to give up so easily. It takes time for the hard work to pay off.

  • 6. Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl. Step 2 Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Step 3 Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don't knead dough too much or scones will be tough). Step 4 Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour. Step 5 Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.
