If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Love Mandy’s take on real life. cookaburra’s interjecting on conference calls tends to discombobulate Emerald City inhabitants too. the bane of the home worker would have to be video conference. A must have is the demure button to the throat shirt, or risk cleavage cam. The natural reflex to adjust skirt & bum sweat, forward and up from your chair, creates cleavage cam close-up – the antithesis of gender neutrality which is accepted workplace de riguer. dare I say, a booby-trap
