I was sitting in Centre Place when a couple who were clearly in love walked by. They were laughing with each other, holding hands and they looked like they were in their own little world. Which is exactly how love should be. I chased after them...
Their names were Tim and Brendan.
I asked the two gentleman to pose for me in this photo to show what would happen to those around them if gay marriage was legalised in Australia... Nothing. Zip. Zero. Life would continue on exactly for everyone else as it does now and nobody would be effected except the two Humans who are so in love.
BREAKING NEWS: Last Friday i made you aware of an application for the Victorian Government to house refugees with aged care residents.
This video reached over 610,000 people, was shared 6,300 times and received over 5,900 comments, the majority of which were against St Vincent's proposal to the Government.
Today i can inform you that the Government have ignored the majorities wishes and instead fast tracked an approval.
Can I also point out it has come to our attention over recent days that Former Health Minister and Local MP Jenny Macklin's Ex-Chief of Staff Abbie Clark is St Vincent's Care Services General Manager of Public Affairs.
This seems strange to me, does it seem strange to you?
"This is Patrick. He is 86 and he stopped me in Leeds yesterday to ask me how my day was. He then asked if by any chance I had time for a coffee. Meetings cancelled - I spent 2 hours with the most wonderful man. He opened doors for me, told me about his marriage to his late wife and shared pictures of his family. He said that when he married his wife, he told her "the best is yet to come"...and that he still lives by that now. Patrick was the perfect reminder that amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life and work, time really is the greatest gift to give someone. It was the best gift I've received in years."
"After leaving out of the store today my daughter did something that really made me stop and think. There was this guy sitting there crying and she asks me 'did you see that man crying? What's wrong with him?' I said yes but I'm not sure maybe he's just sad...She said, 'maybe he's hot and thirsty' she walked over to him and goes 'hi sir be happy it's a nice day it's not raining. Are you hot? Why don't you go home the ground is dirty?' He says I have no home but I will be ok. She looked at him with the saddest face and goes 'so that means you're homeless. So you have no food because you have no refrigerator.' She gave him a few dollars out of her purse and her drink and said, 'Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald's you should go there.' I could tell she made his day. On top of that 2 more people came up and gave money as well. We had a small conversation and he explained his trailer burnt down and he lost everything including his wife. I felt for him. It just warms my heart. A 6 year old lead by example this morning. AWESOME! Kids see no color and that's exactly how it should be . It's not just a statement saying that the children are our future, it's a FACT. That gives me a little more hope for the world."

Mars Bar Rocky Road from "One Pot One Bowl" - Page: 182
Serves 8 - Ok so it serves one when I've had a rough day.
* 400g (14oz) Milk or Dark chocolate, broken & melted * 150g (6oz) Marshmallows * 150g (6oz) Raspberry Lollies * 2 Mars Bars (120g or 4oz), roughly chopped
Optional: Mix 1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil into the melted chocolate.
Note: I was lucky enough to have a packet of macadamia nuts in the cupboard and they kept begging me to mix them in with the chocolate and marshmallows. So I did!
Variations: You can use bounty bars or snickers bars, even violet crumbles, it's up to YOU!
Line a 30 x 20cm (12 x 8 inch) baking tray with baking/parchment paper. In a large microwave bowl, melt the broken chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each time until nice and smooth. Let cool slightly before adding the remaining 3 ingredients, stir to coat. Pour mixture into the baking tray and refrigerate for 40 minutes or until set. Cut into squares to serve.
Brilliant with a cuppa in the afternoon just before the madness of school pick up. Magnificent as dessert. The divine treat that will be raved about at any party! Trust me, EVERYONE will ask for this recipe!!

At Harris Farm we believe in value and values. Cheap doesn't mean cheap at all costs. Especially if that cost is the livelihoods of Aussie dairy farmers and their families. So as of now we will no longer sell $1/L milk. We will be replacing it with this Farmer Friendly Milk at $2.29 for 2L. We are doing this to support Aussie Dairy farmers and so we will be paying over 95% of the retail price to the cooperative of farmers who bottle it for us. This cooperative has a transparent, published farm gate price that is above the cost of production. Any additional profits made by the processor are also returned to the farmers. It's transparent, fair and sustainable. So now you can still buy milk at a great price and know that you're doing the right thing.

Sonia Kruger is entitled to her own opinion, but she is not entitled to her own facts. An opinion based on irrational fear has no place in public discourse and deserves the ridicule it receives. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-07-18/sonia-kruger-muslim-migration-comments-breed-hate-commissioner/7638070.
I encourage you to go to http://www.factcheckonenation.com.au/ which has some very helpful and factual information to counter the fear-mongering put out by Hanson, Bolt and co.
The contribution to public discourse made by Kruger today only increases the feelings of marginalisation already felt by the Muslim community.
The question must be asked: What is the right wing really trying to achieve?

Sure she’s adorable, but before you think about finding your own “Dory”, there’s something you need to know about this surprisingly sensitive fish…
Yes she’s famous for her movie role, but “Dory” aka the Blue Tang fish is also notorious for something else; they’re almost impossible to breed in aquariums. Why is this important? Well, this means that any Blue Tang that you might buy as a pet has most likely been taken from the wild. And while the process is regulated in Australian waters, many parts of the Indian and Pacific Oceans use cyanide to capture them; meaning Dory’s new found popularity may have a rather disturbing side.
The fact is “Dory” is currently experiencing the Hollywood effect. It’s the same phenomenon that caused Dalmatian demand to go crazy when the movie “101 Dalmatians” was released, despite their lack of suitability as a pet for many people. This same phenomenon even sadly saw the wild numbers of clown fish plummet after “Finding Nemo” when they became the buzz pet.
So if you’re not comfortable with where Dory might have come from, then maybe just admire her for her acting. And ‘find’ another more suitable pet instead…
