The man who has taught me so much in my life. Snowy (anyone who knows him well calls him this) has been my mate, my guide and most importantly my dad. Very lucky to still have him in our lives. Taught me the most important thing in boxing, 'keep pumping your lead hand and make it crack!!' Never been one to chip in , just solid as a rock and always by my side. Here after a solid hitout n 2 weeks to go. Love this bloke. #feb3 @adelaideoval @ticketekaustralia
I just posted something on my private page looking for ideas of how I can best dispose of my half used beauty products (I have a buying and hoarding problem with them). Jenny Noyes sent this to me, which I'm posting here for you. In short: there's a service now called Terracycle which will take your used cosmetics and recycle them. Win!
HAPPENING NOW: The lightning has arrived! A line of storms is sweeping east over the city and out to sea. The weather bureau says they are not severe. Just a typical summer night on the Gold Coast 🌩 - JD
I am a 2 year-old, Australian Terrier cross. I came into AWLQ's care as I was found as a stray, wandering the streets, with no one coming forward to look for me and take me home.
I am a friendly dog, but I'm not like the other confident dogs that I see run to the front of the kennels to say Hello as new people walk by. I've had to experience so many new things recently, and for a little guy, it can be overwhelming, so I'm just a little shy at first. Once I have been reassured that you're safe, I will lap up all of the love you have to give me.
I would prefer a quiet home where I can relax and soak up some much-needed attention, love and affection.
I do love my humans, and I'm looking for humans of my own, who I can share the couch with, and call family. Love me unconditionally and I promise to be your loyal companion for the rest of my days.
Come meet me at the Warra Rehoming Centre - 523 Telegraph Road, Bracken Ridge - 07 3631 6800

All Australians stand with the people of Melbourne in this horrific moment.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of the lost.
We pray for the injured and the frightened, in particular the very young children.
We pay tribute to the first responders. We give thanks for the bravery of the police, the speed of the paramedics and the skill of those who’ve worked to save the lives of the injured.
We salute those passers-by who rushed to the aid of their neighbours.
But we also know that on dark days like this, words are so inadequate.
Words can’t capture the horror we feel. Words can’t comfort those who’ve lost someone they love. Words won’t heal people who’ve been hurt or banish the fear. Words can’t put back the lives stolen in a few minutes of madness.
It’s difficult for all of us to comprehend how, why and what has happened. Harder still to understand that it happened here, in a country and a city that prides itself on being such a welcoming, safe and peaceful place.
Victoria Police have made it clear this was not an act of terror, it was an act of murder. A cowardly, senseless, destructive crime that has claimed the lives of innocent people.
We wait for answers, we wait for justice and tonight we hold all those in sadness and pain, close to our hearts.
People who are concerned about loved ones can call the helpline on 1800 727 077.
Kyle used to Vespa around Mount Lawley putting more pingas on the shelf than Shane Warne working Coles’ nightfill.
That was until he picked up a copy of Men’s Health before a flight to Melbourne to take a barista course. What he read shocked him. Apparently gluten is a shitcunt.
He stared at his ham & cheese sanga and the plane filled with the tension of an Indian taxi driver asking a shirtless patriot to pay up front on ‘Straya Day. He could no longer tolerate it. In fact his whole life had to change.
He grew his hair out, discontinued beard maintenance and dressed like an eat, love, pray-cunt that had a spiritual awakening after a 3 day Ubud yoga retreat. Most importantly, he took up residence in South Fremantle.
Gluten intolerance was merely a gateway drug to harder dietary addictions. Lactose was next on his list and much like an internet atheist with a Lynx addiction, he will only add the “milk” of things that have never been near an actual titty.
He hops on his fixie and rides down to the South Freo Sunset markets to mingle with the barefooted flock of organic trending sheep.
While harvesting some kale, he overhears an argument about the controversial Roe 8 project being lead by an impassioned hippie that would rather be bound to an old growth tree than the horrors of an employment contract.
Well, so it happens, Kyle has read a few paragraphs of a Newscorp article himself. Like a true poser, he enters the argument with the intensity of blue balled Shannon Noll refusing to pay for his lap dance because Guy Sebastian’s “Angels Brought Me Here” started playing just before he had a chance to turn his jeans into a milk spill at the local corner shop.
Not posing you say? Well, not only did he kinda read that Newscorp article but he also hashtagged the shit out of the issue on a Freo Facebook group. Who needs political movers & shakers when you have advocates like Kyle ay?
Next stop, Percy Flint to sit out the front with his Macbook and work on his organic food blog. While typing about various grains he notices how trendalicious the #vegetarian hashtag is. Clearly he isn’t going hard enough. Is he even South Freo at all?
So he looks over at an a guy devouring some pork belly and cringes, “you omnivores make me sick, do you think that pig wanted to die mahn?”

We're loving P!nk's brilliant idea to throw a Big Sister Party for her daughter. The talented singer and mother-of-two uploaded this happy snap to Instagram, writing "Congrats Big Sis!" New addition Jameson Moon seems oblivious, but how big (and cute) is Willow's smile?! 💗🙌

Today, the NSW Police Commissioner took Keep Sydney Open to the Supreme Court of NSW to prohibit Saturday’s rally. Their case was that a crowd of 7,000 people would be too dangerous to accomodate in Kings Cross. Prior to the lockouts, Kings Cross received 27,000 visitors per night. Keep Sydney Open maintains that the police's argument could be applied to any protest or public assembly, and they could shut down any major political rally by arguing the size would create risks. It is the job of police to work with organisers to mitigate those risks, but the right to assembly and political free speech must come first. We oppose risk management becoming a cause to prohibit political assembly. When red tape gets this powerful, it should be a worry for everyone in our state.
Sadly, the court ruled in the Police Commissioner’s favour. That means the usual legal protections that apply to people at public assemblies, would no longer apply. Any of our supporters who arrived at the location, could be arrested for unlawful assembly or blocking roadways. Under these circumstances, we felt we could no longer go ahead with the rally.
We don’t want to be responsible for putting our supporters into a situation where they would likely face arrest. We also didn’t want to tarnish the reputation our movement has built, with all of your support.
As far as Saturday night goes, we urge you to go to the venues in Kings Cross and help bring vibrancy and excitement to that iconic part of our city. But our rally will not be taking place. We are exploring alternatives and will keep you posted in the coming hours.
We want you all to know that we fought hard for your right to rally. We were served at 6:00pm yesterday. Along with our legal team, we prepared through the night to defend the case. We’re extremely proud of the case we brought before the Supreme Court and we believe it was an exceptionally strong case.
This state has told responsible adults when we can and can't have fun, now it's telling us when we can and can't politically express ourselves.
There's a new premier on the way and our cause is as vital as ever, we hope you will join us in the coming weeks: we've got a strong message to send.

Amazing shots from the world-class Three Capes Track, last week, thanks to Dan Vaughan. We have also included Dan's description with each photo.
You, a pack, and 46 kilometres of cliff-hugging wildness in Australia's far south-east. The next stop is Antarctica. The Three Capes Track is not about getting from point A to point B. It’s about the journey. Few places on Earth remain that feel so remote, so raw, so removed from the ordinary.
They say walking can be transformative and this is Tasmania's natural pathway. Four days and three nights on a track so meticulously crafted you’re free to enjoy your experience rather than watching every step. Look up, look out, look within. #Tasmania
