This website is about the ABC of school mottos: Aimless, Bizarre and Clever. It originated from Alan Waddell's walking every street of nearly 300 Sydney suburbs. He enjoyed discovering the unusual – the odd features of gardens, streets, art, signs, mailboxes, fences and rubbish. Dominant around Sydney are the school mottos. There are over 1,285 photos of school mottos collected on these pages showing the effort and challenge involved in putting a school's aims into as few meaningful words as possible, often with strange results.

Investing in Your Life April 2009
Ian Pollard’s latest book Investing in Your Life: Your Biggest Investment Opportunities are Not Necessarily Financial breaks significant new ground through its compelling analogy between the building of human and social capital and the accumulation of financial capital. It shows the same drivers at work – compound interest, annuities, leverage, options, opportunity cost, returns for risk and many more.
Dr Ian Pollard is an actuary, Rhodes scholar, Australian tennis representative and company director. His website is www.investing-in-your-life.com He does mention Alan in his book: "My family, of all ages, were inspired by our late friend Alan Waddell's self-reinvention. After the death of his wife, Marge, Alan began walking the streets of Sydney. In the last six years of his life, from the age of 88 to 94, he walked every street in 284 suburbs. He gave his first ever public speech (reputedly the challenge many people fear most) at 90 and became an international celebrity, regular TV guest, public speaker and inspiration to many - young and old - especially in encouraging people to do more walking. His website <walksydneystreets.net>, still maintained by his sons, has to be seen to be believed."
