Come on Qld Government, it's time to form a modern party and get with the times. The Qld people are tired of living in the dark in the evening and being woken by the sun at 4.30am in summer. Listen to the people or just look out your window and see that our clock is way out of whack!
Share away people, get the message out there. Spring is almost here.... ☀️
Exactly two years ago I started "Simone's Journey to Health" where I made the decision to overhaul my entire diet, mind set and lifestyle. What a journey it has been from 169kg to 77kg! Looking back and remembering how many tears and emotions came before I pressed "post" I am so proud of myself for every single step I have gone through and having the guts to make my journey a public one. There have been so many days I have wanted to give up and revert to my old lifestyle, but I haven't. Thank you to everyone of you who have been there every single step of the way, I know for sure I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for your constant support, kind comments and words and heartfelt messages. I am more grateful than you will ever know and I can't thank you enough!
This is the story of a little soup shop in Melbourne that makes a lot of lives better everyday. But you've probably never heard of it...
In Centre Place, about half way down, you will come across "The Soup Place". Out the front you'll see the big black kettles full of tasty soup. You will also see lots of post-it notes and that's where the story really starts.
George, the manager, saw a pizza place in New York that allowed patrons to buy slices for the homeless. They would write their name and a little message on the note and then homeless people could come in and have a slice for free. George decided to bring this idea to Melbourne and now OVER 6,000 bowls of soup have been served to the less fortunate. People pay $3.50 for a bowl of soup that usually costs $7.50. They write on a post-it note, sometimes it's just their name, other times it's words of kindness like "Be safe tonight, you are important". Everyday those that can't afford a meal come and get a bowl of soup and some bread and when they do a post-it note goes from the fridge to the bowls on top of the fridge to show how many people have been fed. Brilliant.
Today I saw 3 gentleman John,Dave and Tony digging into their soups.
"How is it gents?"
"Bloody delicious" Dave smiled.
I asked Tony how it felt to know that people care.
A wine marathon has drawn thousands of runners in France! At 40km the race is as long as it is boozy, with 23 wine pit stops along the route. Runners can also stop and enjoy specialty stalls along the route serving oysters, steak and ice cream! Would you give this marathon a go? #9Today
