medivav bill #auspol Show more
So the amended medivac bill has passed the House of Representatives and now needs to go back to the Senate to be ticked off
The first time since 1929 (or potentially 1941) the government of the day has lost on a bill in the House
Question now is do they have the authority to continue to govern? Can they just ignore what's happened like Morrison suggested on the weekend?
GHOST APPLES 👻🍎
After freezing rain in Michigan, apples that hadn’t been picked got coated in ice. Many fell off the tree. Some had their insides turn to mush as apples have lower freezing points. The mush and skin fell, leaving these “ghost apples.”

We're getting there, plenty can happen in 100 days but I for one can hardly wait to boot this current mob out

my health record #auspol Show more
Last day to opt out, I'm just on hold waiting to do it now. I don't have the right id to do it online
It's a shame in some ways because I think it's a good idea especially for someone like me who moves around a bit
My worry is who has access to the the data and how it will be used. Hopefully the rules will be changed and I can sign up in the future
and the birds landing... I caught the last two bunches landing (hope I didn't overcompress this video like the previous one) I saw them al take off yesterday - 14 flocks (like the 2 landing here) came out of that hedge! #smallstories
a sad tale of salt and pepper Show more
So I opened the pepper at lunch and couldn't believe it when the top came right off sending peppercorns everywhere
So I opened the salt at dinner and couldn't believe it when the top came right off and sending salt flying everywhere
Lesson - don't buy cheap salt and pepper shakers that are terribly designed
Kelly O'Dwyer - #auspol Show more
Interesting she announced today she won't contest the election
Didn't want to be in opposition?
Had enough of the Liberal Party culture?
Clearing the way for a Costello comeback?
hot nights Show more
No just in terms of weather 😞
So frustrating. I have a little balcony off my bedroom so leave the door open to let some cooler air in. It works BUT then a garbage truck or the like comes along and wakes me up and it's hard to get back to sleep
So many have it worse though, imagine being somewhere really hot or being homeless. Must be a really tough time of year for lots of people
Australia Day - Change the date Show more
With Australia Day in the news again today I wondered what people's thoughts were on changing the date?
Personally I'd like to see it moved. It just seems wrong to me to celebrate on a date that can't be embraced by everyone
My suggestion, the last Monday of January each year. Let's celebrate the wonderful multicultural country we are with the greatest Aussie tradition of all, a public holiday and long weekend ☺
Friday Show more
That is all ☺
