It seems to me that Margaret Court has been the subject of far more hate speech than any of the people who’ve taken offence at what she said. I don’t agree with her views but, in the great scheme of things, with what’s going on worldwide, I really don’t understand why people keep harping on about it.
Let me very clear: I cannot stand Donald Trump. However, I also cannot stand negativity and hate. No person in this world is absolutely good or absolutely bad. To believe the opposite is to show a distinct lack of emotional intelligence.
@zaky, the peace deals signed with middle eastern countries? I can’t stand the man but the facts are the facts. Nobody else, presidential or otherwise, has achieved what he did in that area.
What a beautiful, well phrased speech Melania gave yesterday. Full of positivity and good will. She’s a classy, dignified woman who simply got on with the job without fuss and fanfare. A great role model who did an excellent job as First Lady.
Your son seems to lack the company of children his age. As a mother and grandmother, a retired teacher and nurse and a lover of children, I know that nothing brings a bratty child down to earth more quickly than a group of children his or her own age.
Wow! I stopped colouring my hair about two years ago and I love it! I adore the colour yellow but with blonde hair, it didn’t suit me. Now I can wear it. My hair is healthier and actually shines.
I’ve written about lipodaema twice on Mamamia and neither time was my comment published. I’m even more confused now as to why you have an article about it.
NEVER apologise for doing the world’s most important, fulfilling, exhilarating, fun filled, exhausting, frustrating and sometimes just plain crazy making job.
I’m a very spiritual person and this is how I live my life now. I’m 75 years old and if I could just offer a tiny bit of advice, it would be this: no matter how bad things seem, just hold on to these four words: This too shall pass. Whatever it is may not pass completely, but it will ease. If you hold on to this, you can remain calm and positive. It really is worth it.
While I agree these aircraft are needed, I can’t help wondering when individuals are going to realise that in so many cases, these fires are preventable. The current Fraser Island fire was started by an illegal campfire.
In the wake of Anna’s suicide, a programme has been set up to empower children, whether they be black or white, to recognise grooming techniques and hopefully stop abuse from happening before it begins. The programme is called Deadly Guardians and one of its hardest workers is Keith Gregory. It’s a super hero type programme that appeals to both boys and girls.
I’m certainly not going to heap praise on a man whose ‘jobs for the boys’ caused the death of more than 800 people. Thousands in Victoria are suffering irreparable loss of their loved ones, their marriages, their businesses and their homes. If they’re young, they may be able to rebuild their businesses and buy another home, but they can’t bring back their loved ones. Nor can their mental health recover in the blink of an eye.
Is it possible to track down other families in your area? It would be beneficial for your boys to mix with children outside your family and great for other autistic children as well. My husband worked for many years, after he retired from his profession, as a school crossing supervisor. There were several families in that one school alone, with one grandmother raising two quite severely autistic brothers. They loved my husband and sometimes made things slightly awkward because they wanted to stand in the middle of the crossing cuddling him, instead of crossing the road. I’m sure other families in your situation would love to get together.
My husband and I dealt with multiple miscarriages over a period of six years before I had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 28. I never delivered a live baby.
If ever there were a situation whereby we shouldn’t judge until we’ve been there, this is it.
I’m the ‘Aunty Joan’ guest and I love weddings.
Good grief! What a revolting thing to do to those poor girls! Kudos to Princess Margaret for kicking up a fuss!
Speaking of whistle blowers only brings one name to my mind and he’s the greatest of them all. Julian Assange. He loathes the mainstream media because it censored and ridiculed him, despite his providing proof in black and white.
I’m probably going to be the butt of jokes, but I observe all these except the placing of the wine and water glasses. I didn’t go to a class to learn them though, I’ve never known any other way. My mother taught me etiquette which she learned from her mother, who was a very prim and proper English lady. Also, the fact that I’m about to turn 75 may have a bearing.
The creeping cancer of political correctness.
