FBI (New Show)
- If you are on the fence about the new Dick Wolf show "FBI" let me tell you, the second episode is better. Why? Sela Ward has replaced Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta from Wonder Woman). Not that Connie was bad in the role, she was great but anything Sela Ward is in, is GOLD (IMO). Sela doesn't replace Connie's character but it's a new character. Go watch. I like it (and even more now with Sela in it)

- I was sad to see that Sandra Oh didn't win an Emmy for her outstanding work on Killing Eve. The gong went to the incredible Claire Foy for her role as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown. While Claire was fantastic, I was hoping Sandra would get it. I've been a huge fan of hers since her days on Greys Anatomy where she was SUPERB it as Cristina Yang. I was thrilled to see The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Beat Atlanta for Best Comedy Series at the Emmys - that is fantastic show. Well deserved gong.

- Mind power in Auschwitz - and healing decades later. Mind power in Auschwitz - and healing decades later. Her mother's wisdom helped Edith Eger create a happy inner life in Auschwitz - but true healing meant going back there. Edith Eger was 16 years old, crammed into a cattle truck, human cargo from Hungary headed for Auschwitz, when her mother gave her the advice that shaped her life. For most of the journey, her mother hadn't said much, hadn't cried or complained, but had instead gone inside herself. "That night," says Eger, "she turned to me and said: 'Listen. We don't know where we're going. We don't know what's going to happen. Just remember, no one can take away from you what you've put in your mind."

New Movie To Watch Out For...
- I was listening to a radio interview on Sydney radio today with Noni Hazelhurst (I LOVE Noni) and she's talking about her new movie "Ladies in Black" which is set in a department store in 1950's Australia. Sounds like a fabulous movie and something I touch on my fiction series as well especially in my latest "Mabel of the Anzacs". Can't wait to see this! Watch the video!

AUSXIP Charity Auction
Hey guys have a guess what I was doing on the 7th September? It was STARSHIP AUCTION SPREADSHEET TIME! Starship sent over their spreadsheet of payments. We had some issues with the donation form on Starship. It kept crashing. There is a reason the Starship donation form fell over - the Xenaverse crashed another server :) (the donation form was a little iffy lately whether it went through ok or it stalled but we're getting that sorted out BUT apparently, everyone has figured it out) Does this count as a the Xenaverse crashing another server? I'm calling it - we did :)
Good news: $11K of the winning bids have already been donated and we are waiting on the last remained $2K to come in. Saying that Starship is overjoyed by this outcome is an understatement.
- Added images of Lucy and Renee in the Q&A
- Added images from Social Media
- Added video of full Q&A Panel
- Added video highlight of ROC and LL singing Deep In The Heart of Texas
- Added video highlight of Lucy doing the Xena Yell
- Added video highlight of LL and ROC being asked About Being The Better You
A few days ago I saw this amazing photo of an older couple - a man and his girl on a bike with the words:
"Growing old isn't so bad when you have someone to grow old with that can hang on tight during hardest storms of life."
The words moved me and I mentioned to my book club group that I would love to see something like that for my characters of Eva and Zoe. You know what they say about putting it out in the universe. Well my friend Hayriye Makas Uygun decided to surprise me and create an Eva and Zoe version!
I LOVED THIS so much. May you have that special someone to grow old with who hangs on tight even through the hardest of times.

Happy Xenaversary everyone!!!
With the support of the Xenaverse, actors such as Renee O'Connor, Lucy Lawless, Adrienne Wilkinson and many others, we have raised (tentative total, not counting any additional donations) $13,293.97 NZD. That brings our combined total for all auctions held since 2006 to $198,293!
Just an amazing number. Xena's legacy has been to help others and to do it for the Greater Good. On her 23rd Anniversary, the Xenaverse has come together and created something special. Without your support, this auction would not have gotten off the ground in 2006 and continued since then.
I have informed Starship that a whole lot of money is heading their way! THANK YOU everyone who supported, who bid and who won! BLESS YOU ALL!
Thank you also goes to my team who are EXTRAORDINARY. Without them, it would be impossible to have this auction.
