Please Help My Friend Eryn if you can afford to.

This is Eryn. Eryn is a lovely lady, & a family friend that has fallen on hard times through NO fault of her own. Now she is having to raise her daughter on her own, & these are hard times for lower income families in Australia. Please give generously if you can afford to.

We may not be able to save the world, but maybe we can help one person at a time.

"I wasn't always a single mum, but I used to have a beautiful home and I lived with my partner and ran a home business selling hand dyed and hand spun yarns, which my daughter and I would do together, Me as Medicated Merino, and her as The Rainbow Cheetah. But when my partner and I split up, I had to leave everything behind. 

He forced me out of our home, with no where to go, and with my daughter, and I couldn't take any of the house contents except for a few oddments, my spinning wheel, and what could fit in my car. On top of this, his mother stole all my jewelry from amongst my packed belongings while I was trying to arrange storage for my clothes and books, essentially stripping me of what little items of value I had left. Despite my trying to get the police to help me get them back, because she is family, They wouldn't help me. 

Because I couldn't afford to transport my stock with me, except for a few small items, all of my stock was sold off in bulk for less than 1/10 of what I paid for it in the first place to help me pay for fuel to move. And so, my shop was closed, seemingly indefinitely. Now, I work all day, every day to pay our bills on my own, which on its own isn't so bad, except that I never get to seem my daughter anymore. And although I enjoy my work and have a very loving and supportive family, I feel as though I am wasting away creatively, and that I am not really pursuing what I want to be doing with my life. 

Ultimately I want to re-open my shop and be able to work from home so I can take care of it and my daughter and give her the time and attention she deserves from me. 

A yarn business is very labour intensive and the supplies are very expensive. I have estimated that my costs to purchase stock and supplies would be around $8,000. Although the $5000 I am asking for here wouldn't cover all my costs, it would help me with the essentials such as yarn and dye stock. Hopefully starting small will help me to build bigger in the future and make mine and my daughter's dream a reality. 

I thank you in advance for anyone who contributes and if I manage to reach my goal, you have my deepest gratitude".

Drying Corn On The Cob By Keith H Burgess

Class Action Against Local Councils. More Signatures/People WANTED. FREE Participation. NO Charge.

Do you live in a house, townhouse or apartment?
Do you ever park your car on the side of the road?
Do you own or rent an office or retail space?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then you must go to the website and add your name and e-mail address to that page to register your expression of interest in the class action.


Because if you live in anything other than a tent or caravan, whether you rent it, own it or are buying it, then you will be in some way, paying for ever-increasing council rates. The same applies to council rates, which will be included in your business figures somewhere along the line as well. And, if you drive a car then you will almost certainly, at one point in time or another, have received a council issued parking fine – which are completely illegal.

The Community Law Resources Group are looking to run a class action against local governments to have local councils returned to acting as a department of a State, as opposed to a 3rd tier of government, which is what they are currently doing – completely illegally. If this class action is successful, it would mean a dramatic reduction in council rates and the elimination of council issued parking fines, un-registered dog fines and the like.

However, in order to run a successful class action like that, CLRG need your support. They are not asking for any money and they are not asking for any commitment, they are simply asking for your expression of interest in being part of a class action that will benefit you, your family and your community as a whole.

So, please take just 30 seconds to register your name and e-mail address at and do your part to help bring about some real, positive changes in this country. And then, when you’ve done that, please be sure to pass the details of that class action onto everyone you know via e-mail, Facebook and posting up flyers, such as this, in your local area to help us spread the word about this important class action.

Is Australia Preparing for Yet Another Gun Grab?

Please read this article. Something is very wrong when a government bans the use of anything that can be used in self-defence. Tony Abbott is totally corrupt, prioritising mining over farming, cutting funding to women in crisis community services & much more. Now he wants to further restrict the use of firearms by law abiding citizens??? Something is in the wind here & I don't like it one little bit.

We NEED to get rid of the Abbott government & demolish the two party system. We NEED a better government system, one that works for the ordinary people & not just for the mining magnates!!! Is Abbott afraid that he has pushed us too far? Is Abbott afraid that we the people may revolt?
