All those macas and the Festival of Love

This season’s organic nuts have not been harvested so it is a harvest festival where festivalgoers can pick five kilos free as part of their festival entrance fee which is payable in the new paper money being launched at the Off-Grid Macadamia Festival of Love, to be held at Macas Camping Ground where The Elders of Gaia will be discussing how to get back the many freedoms recently lost and get sanity into local, national and global management.

A bid to upgrade Chinderah’s Venus Room to an around-the-clock pleasure palace follows competition from a revamped bordello which was opened 200 metres down the road by the millionaire father of Gold Coast gangster brothers, Jade and Dionne Lacey, amid a blaze of publicity two months ago.

Ken Lacey told Brisbane media that he bought the business and turned it into a ‘five-star’ operation in the hope that his sons will run it when they eventually get out of jail.

Lacey told media that ‘Club Lace’, at Chinderah, will be run by his sons Jade and Dionne Lacey when they get out of jail.

It is the same establishment where brothel owner Victor Elliott was gunned down 11 years ago.

The Lacey brothers are serving lengthy jail sentences for manslaughter, torture and kidnapping. Their father says they helped design the brothel’s business plan from behind bars.

Mr Lacey, who sports a tattoo of a handgun on his neck, said he needed to earn money because of the $6 million he spent on his sons’ legal bills.

He also has an approval for a brothel at Byron Bay.

Mr Lacey will face a Gold Coast court later this month charged with drug-driving. He has not entered a plea.
