  1. Mum and Dad are too proud to ask for any help, so I’m not asking for them but for myself. I want to spend time with my mum. Most of my mates are always getting at their parents but they don’t know how lucky they are. I wish Mum was home to shout at me more. Although she does ask for too many cups of tea Mum tells everyone she is ok, she discharges herself from the hospital every admission and always puts her pink lipstick on and a smile on her face. She even takes me fossicking and sits in the car watching me. She was very angry about the Go Fund me but I’m wanting to spend what time I can with her and take her places and help her enjoy our time together. There is no cure for Mum, they can’t give her times, they can just make her comfortable. I know nobody knows me on here but @Bobjdoes and @ali and they have both been by Mum and dads side all the way. if you can’t afford a dollar that is fine everyone is struggling but please help share my page. I am sure over the years the forum has helped you in some way. https://www.gofundme.com/7s9q7-help

    Growing up in Australia

    Following a talk with dad, I'm posting a snapshot of my childhood in Australia. It's not a comparison with anywhere else - I moved here when I was 5 and dont recall much before then. It's just a look back at things I've done while growing up. Hopefully, for any children who read this that may be moving to Australia, it will give them a little insight into what it's like here. For the record, I've just turned 17, am currently in year 11 at school and also doing a school based apprenticeship (day release & weekends). I've lived in Melbourne, Cairns, Townsville and the Lockyer Valley. A Air cadets ALEXANDER THE GREAT: 2000 YEARS OF TREASURES at the Australian Museum in Sydney Aquariums Ammunition Storage at Charters Towers Amathyst - fossicking off the Duncan Rd AFL A-League Arcades Aboriginal Rock art Aviation Museums Astronomy - Brian Cox Live Audience Participation B Barista Traing Course Beaches Birds Body Boarding Bob - @Bobj Bouncing Bungee Jumping Banana Boat BBQ'ing Bowling C Cable Skiing Cable cars Camping Campfires Canoeing Chainsaw - undertook a Chainsaw Training Course with dad, before being unleashed on our land Cinema Citizenship Climbing Climbing (into) trees Circus Camels Cooking with Miguel Maestre Collecting - Rocks, Gems, Minerals, Fossils D Digging the paydirt Dresssing up Dining out DIY Drone Flying E Emergency Response Exploring Endevour River - following in Captain Cook's footsteps Fishing Feeding the Fish Flying over the Whitsundays Feeding the Crocs Ferry across Sydney Harbour Funfair Footy Friends Fossil Prepping Fossil Hunting Fairy Penguins at Phillip Island Fencing - living on acerage with a variety of animals, I've become quite adept at fencing G Gaol (Old Melbourne) Gardening Garnets - Fossicking for Garnets off the Plenty Highway in the NT Ghost Towns Gorges - Katherine & Cobbold Grumpy old man - Dad not too happy after I'd tipped the boat (twice) H Hanging Rock (Picnic at) Herding the Flock Herberton Historic Village HMAS Cairns - Open day at the Naval base Holidays - Bali, Singapore, Hong Kong, USA to name a few Horse Riding I Indoors - I do all the things any other teenager would do, but i won't bore you with photos of me playing consoles, on my phone, reading, watching netflix, studying etc, J Jamie Oliver - A cooking course I did at Ipswich Jobs - Part time job at the Fish Inn in Townsville & now work part time as an apprentice Chef in the Lockyer Valley K Kangaroo Karate Kayaking L Lapidary Learning to Drive M Museums - lots of them (dad's quite a fan) Military Museums Musicals - King Kong, Evil Dead, Miss Saigon, Mama Mia Music Festivals - Adele, Coldplay, Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons, Bernard Fanning, Vance Joy to name a few Mine Tours N Netflix - like any teenager, no photo required O Observatories - Siding Spring Observatory, Parkes Radio Telescopes, Chillagoe & Charleville On Parade P Paddle Steamers at Exchuca Pets Pools Pool Q Quad Biking R Ravenwood Mining remains Relaxing Red Centre - Alice Springs Rugby League Riding my bike Road Trips S Scouts Segways Ships Snakes Snorkelling Steering boats Sunsets - Mindil Beach Swings School Swimming in Mataranka Therman Springs T Theme Parks Titanic The Exhibition Tiger Cubs Trains Tree Top walks Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs - Melbourne Museum U Uranium mine at Mary Kathleen Underground Hosiptal at Mt Isa V Volcanic Laver Tubes at Undara W Waterfalls WaterParks Weightlifing (rock) Wrecks - outback truck World War II guns - Darwin X X is always a struggle, so an anecdote will have to suffice. On one of our roadtrips, we were stoppping in a Caravan Park in Darwin. There was a zipline in the park. I was struggling to reach it/get it to move, so my older brother Mat said 'step aside, Ill show you how it's done' Which he did - until about half way across when he fell off.

    Fake marriage - defacto partner visa

    I know it happens all the time but do the immigration department not care? A Case I’ve heard about recently. A couple chat online whilst playing a shoot em up type of game. In November 2016 she decides to come over for a holiday, whilst here she makes this person put in a defacto application and then in Feb they get married. How on earth did they get this far. They have only met in person 3 months prior to their wedding. Someone close to the family reported it and nothing has been done. Is there anywhere else they can take this? @Richard Gregan

    Sponsoring Squarepants for 40 hour famine

    Thank you for you donations support it has been the hardest 40 hours of my life especially when my dad, brother and grandma tease me at the food court with KFC I now know how hard it has been for my mum when she could not eat and i teased her. I know how hard it is for people all around the world who do not have food or drinks and they have to walk miles everyday just so they can survive another hard day. this has really opened my eyes into how I am so lucky to live in a place like this where I do not have to walk miles just to get a drink and I do not have to starve and it has shown me how a lot of people will just take it for granted instead of actually knowing that people are dying just because they can not get a decant meal in them. It is also bad when we waste food as the food we waste would probably be about 5 meals for those in need.
