More commentary on asylum seekers,

The Facebook Page has become something of a reflection of the issues concerning the show's friends and often indicates early trends of what is happening here in Australia. 

Of late the issue of Fracking & CSG has resulted in some very peaceful protests that have resulted in one government changing its spin doctoring about its legislation. Most citizens however are not satisfied that the changes are adequate or will protect the irreplaceable aquifers used in many places for water supply.  

Action to stiffen parliamentary member's vertebra in the face of pressure from soft drinks manufacturers to prevent proven common sense recycling rewards has also been occurring. 

The plight of asylum seekers and perceived governmental breaches of duty of care. 

Commentary on Pope Francis I's biography. 




I particularly hope that some of the overseas readers
of the blog will come forward and say hello.
Our opening theme song from the Spinners was not idly
chosen....we are all part of the family of man no matter
where we live, our nationality or the hue of our skin....

Hello and Welcome.
