    Purple Liza The Funnel Web Spider And Sparkle

    We have a huge but harmless spider in Australia called a Huntsman. One summer when my daughter was a toddler, a large Huntsman took up residence in the cornice in our living room. We named her, "Sparkle."  She coexisted with us happily in the house until one day she was gone...

    16-12-14 I am sad today.

    Yesterday I read about the woman Sydney forgot.

    ..Natalie Wood, who lay dead in her home for 8 years, not missed by a soul. The account of her very lonely, austere life had me in tears and hit home a little, I guess. Every life is of value. You can read the article here http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/natalie-wood-the-woman...

    Road Rage

    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...

    Death Sentence for the Bali Nine Ring Leaders.

    I have NO problem with their fate at all. 1) It is now all over the media and I am sure among many in the community that the 2 ring leaders many would discuss the pro-con of such punishment. Indeed, many would talk about the merit of death sentence itself. 2) Allow me to...
