Incredible photo's from yesterday's bushfire at Lindisfarne/Geilston Bay. The fire quickly got out of control forcing many families to evacuate. Thank you to all the brave firies and emergency services men and women who did an amazing job to eventually bring the fire under control. #Tasmania Tasmania Fire Service
I was walking along Flinders Street when I saw this young guy offering a homeless man some stuff out of a bag. Of course I had to ask him what was going on!
"What are you doing?"
"I have been in Melbourne for 6 months and I fly back to France at 11 tonight. I had all this stuff that I can't take with me so instead of just throwing it away I thought I'd offer it to people who need it. Melbourne has given me so much in my visit and this is what I can do to give back before I leave."
"That's amazing mate, will you ever come back to Melbourne?"
"As soon as I possibly can. I love this city!"
These little acts of kindness and thoughtfulness make the world such a better place. Thanks for making Melbourne a better place before you left Flo.

I read about this project in the Guardian today. It's beautiful. A series of photos of boys doing things that are coded as feminine, in a celebration of how these things do not make them less than or inferior somehow and that boys can like sparkles and dancing and butterflies and cooking and babies and it shouldn't be treated as an aberration of masculinity. Gender neutral all too often means that girls can do and wear 'boy' things. Real gender neutrality in taste and expression should mean everyone can do everything and it will be equally respected and cherished.
Experts are saying that Grant Hackett’s most recent episode isn’t even that bad, for someone who spent 90% of his formative adult years face-down, short of breath and staring at a never-ending black line in complete silence.
"One of these jars contains plastic bags, the other contains jellyfish. Now imagine you're a hungry sea turtle."
A super friendly reminder that when fishing, firstly SECURE your rubbish from winds & secondly TAKE IT WITH YOU. Even better #take3forthesea We can all do our bit. We all want to see the oceans and all the creatures that live in it around to enjoy for many generations to come. :-)
"When a company like Wicked Campers puts a van on the road with the slogan "Fat girls are harder to kidnap" or "I can already imagine the gaffer tape on your mouth," the question has to be asked: what's the joke supposed to be? I understand some people find those ideas funny, but I'd be curious for them to explain why.
In a country that holds the legacy of Anita Cobby in its history, not to mention the Ivan Milat backpacker murders, what could possibly be funny about the image of someone restrained and bound against their will in the back of a van? To those who defend or laugh at this kind of "humour", I want to ask a simple academic question: what's the joke, and why is it funny?"
I wrote about humour, kicking down instead of up and challenging defenders of bigoted 'jokes' to explain why they think they're funny.
Four year old Son enjoys going to kinder because he gets to learn and play with his friends on the tire swing! Thanks to a livelihoods project in Son’s community, his parents have been able to improve their income by rearing chickens and growing their own vegetables. “Thanks to the support, we have more food to eat, and our children can go to school to study well without an empty stomach,” says Son’s mum.
