.... Our Govenor General

Quentin Bryce.  What a very stylish Lady we have representing our country as Governor -General.  And she didn't get the position of first female Govenor- General on style and good looks alone.  There are a number of "Firsts" for Mrs Bryce - she was the first female admitted to the bar in Queensland, the first director of the Queensland Women's Information,  the first woman to be appointed to the TC Beirne School of Law at the University of Qld faculty. She has six honorary degrees, has been awarded the Australian Sports Medal for Services to Women's Cricket, and the Centeneary Medal for Service to Australian society in business leadership.  Her appointments include an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) in recognition of service to the community, particularly to women and children, in 2003 was elevated as a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) and in the same year was invested as a Dame of Grace of The most Venerable Order of The Hospital of St John of Jerusalem.

Well, don't know about you but I am exhausted just reading this amazing CV and all the while maintaining a marriage and family.  Girls, get your daughters reading this - just proves again what an amazing time and country we are living in with such wonderful opportunities.
