This young lady deserves every recognition and commendation she can get for her act of bravery and maturity amongst scenes of violence and chaos. To stand between the police and her own people in an effort to keep the peace and prevent further harm is something that needs to be shared.
1/3 of Australian pensioners already live in poverty. Now, Malcolm Turnbull is cutting $1.2 billion from aged care. Being old shouldn't make you an easy target. Put the LNP where they put you. Last. #auspol
Good Life Management have been made aware of a photo from Good Life Brisbane 2016, showing what appears to be the ghost of a young girl holding a teddy and hovering on the roof of a building over looking the festival. We have checked with the photographer who took the photo and the original image from the memory stick also shows the girl. We have since spoken with the Brisbane Showgrounds who have revealed that ground staff refuse to go near one of the old warehouses after repeated sightings of a young girl. It is rumoured a little girl named Lucy died at the site in the early 1900's and has haunted it since.
We will continue to investigate and bring you updates as more info comes to hand.
I'm lucky. It's extra special when Connie comes to mine because she's very sick and lives 565 kilometres away, so of course I had to take a pretty pic of my darling sister before the sun went down because...well, because she is here with me. xsam

DID YOU KNOW: Airbags deploy between 100 & 220 MPH. If you ride with your feet on the dash, you may send your knees through your eye sockets if the airbag is deployed. Police are sharing this photo in hopes of spreading awareness of safety while driving.
Facebook - I need your help. This is the image signed by SKY NEWS paid TV host ROSS CAMERON. It's of a every MUSLIM being a PIG and being kicked. It's humiliating and offensive. Can we show the world what we think of hatred?
To the day care centre who felt it necessary to post this sign..
I am a 24 hour a day parent of four children.
I am always there,
I cook for them, wipe their arses, they sleep in my bed at the same time as I do and they never let me bath alone.
Oh and I work. But even when I work, my phone is never out of reach. In case my kids need me, like my phone, I never turn off.
I am also a women, friend, wife.
My survival is simply made up of minutes, hours, days of multitasking.
In the year 2017 mothers are so much more then sole carriers of children and guess who we have to thank for a huge part in that?
Without childcare a lot of us would be up shit creek, begging our husbands for money, kissing the dream of a career goodbye and even stuck in miserable marriages.
But we have you, you keep our kids safe, give them the hugs when we can't and teach them things we missed.
I am so grateful.
Only when I saw this sign those warm fuzzy feelings, kind of fucked off out the window and were replaced with the WTF? feels...
I picked my kids up from school the other day, my husband was at work. But like always, I was there.
Only I had my phone in my hands. I was reading an email that reminded me that I needed to pay a bill and then responding to my husbands text message and then as my children ran out of the class room screaming "mummy mummy" I shoved my phone into my into my mouth to hug them because I had no free hands due to the fact that I had just walked a kilometre with 2 skateboards in my hands so that my kids could skate down the hill home from school.
Yet after all of that, you would call me "appalling" and insinuate that I not happy to see my child.
My mum was never there. She didn't even come to the assembly when I got a merit award.. Some kids mistook her absence for a lack of love for me. But mum loved me so much that she worked 2 jobs, knowing that we were always one pay check away from living on the streets.
A loving mum looks like many things, she is open armed hugs, she is distracted on her phone and sometimes she isn't even there.
Some mums even use their phone to avoid social anxiety at school pick ups.
I thank my phone for allowing me to meet my kids needs and work all at the same time. I thank you for keeping my kids safe and well educated during my days..
But the sooner you realise that you have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on in other people's lives the better for everyone.
And from this mother please... take that god dam sign down.
