Mt Oxide mine, abandoned since 1971. One of Queensland's 15,300 abandoned mines, 317 of these are classified as giant. After major rain fall events, local creeks can run turquoise for up to 7 km due to acid and heavy metal pollution. #minerehab
Big mining companies have made millions out of this country, it’s time they put some back: http://www.lockthegate.org.au/minerehab

I was at the servo and because I'm a little broke at the moment I was doing the whole counting out coins thing. I heard a voice behind me said 'You're not paying for that'. I turned to see a young woman, twenties, big true eyes. I said, 'I can't do that.' 'Yes you can.' 'I can't.' 'You do a lot of good things, let me pay for it.' She wanted to help. My pride tried to undermine her kindness but I truly needed the help, which was hard to admit to myself, let alone her. Without thinking I went in for a hug. She hugged me back fully. We just stood there in the middle of the servo, hugging for more than 30 seconds. I kinda wanted to cry, but my heart was too warm. I asked her her name. She told me it was Rachael. I shook her hand, looked at her in those big true eyes and said thanks. Then we hugged again, for ages. I told her I live locally and if I see her again that she can expect me to chase her down and repay her. You know what she said? 'You can try.'
Then I got home to see my sister asleep on my couch, all tuckered out after taking me to Big Dub and buying me socks and jeans and a kettle earlier. I'll have to tell her about Rachael when she wakes.
Touched by two angels on this idle Sunday. Lucky boy.
Thank you Rachael. From the heart of my bottom...ah...you know what I mean! xsam
Bills work mate was over in the arvo Bill goes to grab him a beer and he was left talking to me,
Dan, "we had our first marriage counselling sesh yesterday.."
Me, "you and Bill? 😂😂"
Dan, "Hilarious... Me and Sall, turns out I need to help out with dinners and cleaning more."
Me, "I could have told you that"
Dan, "But I wouldn't have listened to you. Our counsellor said that I should consider my working hours at work to be her working hours at home and anything that needs to be done outside of these hours is over time and we both need to do that together"
Me, "hang on... So your counsellor said that it isn't fair for you to do 8 hours work a day and your wife to do 24? Mind. Blown."
Dan, "Yep and I gotta go.. Not even having a beer with Bill, gotta get home to make dinner"
Bill comes back with 2 beers and a confused look on his face.
Me, "Dans gone home to be a king. I'll drink his beer"
If that's not marriage counselling motivation I don't know what is 👊🏼
