On my recent trip to Canberra, I visited the National Film and Sound Archive  …. you can find them on Facebook here …… to check it out and just have a look around.

My friends at The Hunter Woman are holding a fundraiser next Thursday night, July 25, to reunite a family. The story behind this fundraiser is as inspiring as it is heartbreaking

So please visit The Hunter Woman here to buy tickets, show support or even donate.

A simple request from a mother for her little one to eat his dinner resulted in a lesson for all of us. I may not cease my non vegetarian eating habits but it does make you stop and think when the truth is seen through the eyes of a child.
