What do You, Arjen Brandsma and Eleanor Rigby Have in Common?

I’m guessing you may have heard of Eleanor Rigby? Her name is the title of a song written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon of the somewhat famous band, ‘The Beatles’. If you haven’t heard of them, please ask your parents! I’m also guessing that you may not have heard of Arjen Brandsma? Who is

Why Rupert Told Reginald He Should Be Grateful His Life Was Crap

“My wife just left me, the house burnt down, my dog’s run off and I just got fired!” said Reginald, a miserable looking mouse of a man, his hair unkempt and his clothes crumpled, dejectedly nursing his beer in the darkest corner of the pub. His life sounded like a Country and Western song. “Never

The great ocean views make you smile at Bold Park (Rottnest Island in background)

To Greet or Not to Greet – ‘Why?’ is the Question!

The young, respectable-looking couple bounced cheerfully up the gravel path towards us, chatting happily with each other and breathing in the delightfully fresh morning air of the Zamia Trail at Perth’s Bold Park.

I was greeted by a discarded plastic bottle
