Many of you will remember the heartbreaking story of 24 year old "smart, intelligent, beautiful" Gold Coast mum #TaraBrown who was allegedly bashed to within an inch of her life while trapped in the car she had just crashed after her ex forced her off the road. Tara had just dropped her little girl off at day care. She was dead within the hour.
Today, Tara's incredibly brave but heartbroken family will arrive at Brisbane's Supreme Court for the trial of her partner who has been charged with her murder.
If you would like to show them your support, help remember Tara, and tell the world that domestic violence related deaths must stop, there is a peaceful #RedRoseRally being held outside the Brisbane Supreme court, 451 George St, today (Monday) at noon.
Please bring a red rose, or wear red... or both. It would mean the world to them. And please, PLEASE spread the word... @tarabrownfoundation #StopViolenceAgainstWomen#saynotodomesticviolence #dv #Brisbane
Remember the Walton's man calling? This photo is from Museum Victoria and shows the opening of a Waltons store on 22 October 1964. Waltons had 12 stores around Melbourne and Victoria, and over 60 stores across the eastern states of Australia including Sydney, Newcastle and Gosford. Alan Bond bought Waltons Ltd. in 1981, but the purchase became a financial disaster, with Bond losing $199 million in 1983. The Waltons department store name then disappeared, when Alan Bond sold and split up Waltons in 1987, to interests associated with the Cookes family. The Cookes family then turned the remaining stores into Venture and Norman Ross outlets. In 1994, Venture went bankrupt.

To the casual observer Kai Eardley, had it all - handsome, smart, a beautiful girlfriend and an excellent athlete. But on a cold and rainy day last August, more than 500 people crammed a Fremantle crematorium, wondering why he was gone.
