  1. The Tv Series "Years and Years" is scaring me to death

    Is this really summer in Australia ?

    No heating required in Perth. Just before I took this photo it was reading 43C

    The truth about Australia's immigration policies

    Another troll, it must be the time of year or something

    This is ridiculous

    50 posts in 24 hours isn't normal behaviour Good time to use the ignore function.

    RIP Clive James

    Just watched a lovely tribute on the ABC. I'd forgotten about his Postcards series, hopefully it's still available to watch somewhere.

    Black Friday sales

    I don't do well on small planes or boats so don't think Hummock Island is the place for me . I'm OK on short ferry trips.

    Black Friday sales

    A couple of years ago I suggested to my husband that we move to Bruny Island - he wasn't keen

    Black Friday sales

    I think you've missed my point, it relates to a celebration (Thanksgiving) we don't actually have.

    Black Friday sales

    It's all the advertising and total irrelevance that irritates me. Everything seems to be on permanent sale these days anyway

    Black Friday sales

    No, it's the day after Thanksgiving which marks the unofficial start of the Christmas season. I hadn't even heard of it until a couple of years ago now every shop or business is having a Black Friday sale

    Black Friday sales

    Why are we having Black Friday sales in the UK and Australia when we don't celebrate Thanksgiving?? It's annoying the heck out of me

    Is London really this bad ?

    You're out of touch - Perth's population is over 2.1 million.

    Newcastle upon Tyne

    I haven't lived in Newcastle since 1986 but I'll always be a Geordie. My sister and I were on the Quayside in August, we loved the town beach. When we were kids no-one would have thought the Quayside would become a cultural centre.

    Alternatives to kennels when going abroad

    Most kennels are booked up for Xmas and New Year months in advance. We use a housesitting site (https://mindahome.com.au/) and have had some great sitters but again you've left it a bit late.
