Compost back on Lismore’s gardening menu

As trustee for the WellWishers Trust, I want to thank the good citizens of the Byron Shire (and beyond) for their generosity in donating enough money to build a well for a village, enabling about 300 women, men and children to enjoy clean, healthy water for the first time in their lives. And nearly $2,000 has been raised towards a second well!

This would not have been possible without the driving force of local yoga teacher extraordinaire, Diana Ewing, plus the energy of pupils and staff of Mullumbimby High School. Thank you so much.

You can donate to this life-saving cause through Diana at the Yellow Church Yoga Centre or through www.wellwishersethiopia.com.

Ross Allan, Myocum

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
