A new entertainment highlight for north Byron shire locals, a monthly comedy gig featuring overseas and national acts, kicks off next month.
She’s dead. At just 25 million years. It’s a tragedy. A human being should never outlive one of the natural wonders of the world. That would be like seeing Everest crumble, or the Victoria Falls dry up, the Northern Lights... Read More →

At what point did we start having ‘baby showers’? I gave birth to four babies. I never had a single baby shower. I feel so ripped off. If I had known at the time there was a way to turn being pregnant into rampant commercial opportunism then I would have been on it.
About six weeks ago I decided to give up plastic bags. In the scheme of things it’s a pretty small concession to make so your kids have a shot at a future.
