All I want for Christmas is a blood transfusion! And I am getting one, to give me a boost and keep me out of hospital for Christmas. I am lucky to be having my transfusion as an outpatient, so I can be home tomorrow with my boys, but I know that many people wont be so lucky. To everyone in hospital and away from your families, we are thinking of you. A HUGE Thank you to all the blood donors out there. One third of donated blood goes to cancer patients, and I for one am very grateful to you. And a big Christmas eve thanks to all the nurses and allied health professionals who are working over Christmas and New Year to make sure that the patients are well looked after. So happy that I am going to be home for Christmas that I could do a little happy jig. And I might be able to squeeze in a bit of last minute shopping on the way home. Hope all of your presents are wrapped waiting for the big day. Wishing you a great one villagers.
A Year 5 teacher in the US has surprised her students, by writing inspiring messages on their desks on exam day. She wrote each note with non-permanent markers and personalised them for each student, one of them saying her fear went away when she saw it. This is so lovely!

This is a short video I have made to address the sensationalism in both social and mainstream media about the Adler A110 lever-action shotgun.
Please watch and listen to the video before commenting.
There have been many myths spread in relation to this specific firearm which have been used to push a certain ideology. I accept and respect that there are many people in the community who are not firearm owners and have no interest in them. But to spread fear and misinformation to push an agenda is downright disgraceful.
I completely support legislation that will target criminals and the illegal firearm trade, but I will not accept hysteria which will only target law-abiding people and re-classify a type of firearm that has been available for over 130 years. This is not the type of firearm typically used in criminal activity.
Appropriate resources should be poured into tackling criminals and illegal firearms, but not making criminals out of law-abiding citizens with knee-jerk policies.
Please remember, there are both left- and right-leaning firearm owners who take great offence to the misinformation in this debate.
The fight is against criminals, not ordinary citizens!

"Bandit saved my life around 4 am this morning, he woke me up (I don't know how long he may have been trying to wake me) and I couldn't get up and I was really sweaty and weak. I asked him to get my meter and he did, my blood sugar was at 30 (this is very dangerous and can cause diabetic coma, if he didn't wake me up I may have not woken up again). I asked Bandit to get me juice so he did. Then I was able to get up to get more to eat. I love this dog!!"

>:( PLEASE LIKE OUR PAGE >:( > > > > > Aussie Infidels < < < < < FORMER gang leader Vince Focarelli, who has converted to islam, and now calls himself Imran Salaam, has survived five assassination attempts, is facing deportation from Australia.
Originally from Italy, the controversial ex-bikie boss turned restaurateur has been served a “notice of intent’’ to cancel his visa because of his shocking criminal past.
Focarelli has just 28 days in which to file a submission to the Immigration Department “justifying’’ why he should be allowed to remain on Australian soil.
Focarelli, who was a key figure in more than a decade of gang-related violence in Adelaide, is the 42nd South Australian to be targeted under the strengthened provisions of the Act.
Calling himself Imran Salaam, Focarelli is the second high-profile Adelaide bikie gang figure to be targeted under the measure, with Mongols treasurer Andrew Peter Stevens still fighting his deportation through the courts.
Stevens was forcibly removed from his home and flown to the Christmas Island detention centre last June, along with another lesser-known Adelaide gang figure, ex-Comanchero Paul Burgess.
In 2014, Albanian organised crime figure Leonard Gjeka — who ironically was the gunman in one of the failed assassination attempts on Focarelli — was also deported from Adelaide under Section 501.
His submission will be included in a report to federal Immigration and Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton, who will then make the final decision. Under Section 501 of the Immigration Act, individuals’ visas can be cancelled on character grounds if the individuals “are or have been a member of a group or organisation or had or have an association with a person, group or organisation that the minister reasonably suspects of being involved in criminal conduct”.
