Dads

  The people of Australia have spoken. They don’t want to keep marriage as it is and has always been for thousands of years, through countless cultures, from time immemorial.

Erica Komisar has written a much-needed book titled, “Being There: Why Prioritizing Motherhood in the First Three Years Matters”.

Tender Warrior

The book ‘Tender Warrior’ by Stu Webber was loaned to me by an airline captain who was once an officer in the Australian air force. I have a great deal of respect for any man that has served in the armed forces and I don’t take their recommendations lightly. As I turned the pages of… Read More

Have you received your postal ballot in your letterbox? The real question is what are you going to do with it?

We try hard to keep the story positive on Father’s Day because it really is important to have a day each year to celebrate fathers and a day to celebrate mothers.
