I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Jo. These people make me sick with their practices. I put up the petition to stop Chicken of the Sea on my Facebook page, but more people need to be made aware of this stuff.

    1. Hi Sue – I had trouble with watching it as well. We certainly do have a long way to go if we are ever to be able to co-exist with the other species that live here as well.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
