So basically, they're all just knockoff Dr Martens!

A spoonful of Caramilk Philly is my after dinner treat. So good!

@pippa I've been doing keto for years. There are plenty of green and leafy veggies you can include to get fibre that have a low amount of carbs. I have a salad every day! Like all things, some foods suit some and not others.

@juggalugs I was just going to say that. Sounds awfully familiar...

Just get a lock for your bathroom door.

His comments make me want to vomit. In his direction. So glad the station fired him.

@rush peeps in the Go-to group on fb squeeze the excess into an old serum bottle to use later. Good idea if you can be bothered!

I've always gotten a kick out of dramatic hair changes. Biggest change I even made was long copper curls to short chocolate bob chemically straightened with a fringe. My own mother didn't recognise me! I currently have a platinum blonde textured bob that I love and is taking me nicely into my "grey" phase.

@simple simon Yep, first name only and for address, just the suburb or postcode. That is more than sufficient for the health authorities to track you down if necessary.

I live in a cooler climate with a longer winter than the coastal cities and Vitamin D deficiency is definitely an issue here and supplementation is common. My teenage daughter's Vitamin D levels in a recent blood test were at 5% of the average reading.

"Pure blood line" or inbreeding? Wouldn't be surprised if there were more hidden relatives amongst the "royals".

Unfortunately when David speaks the "we" that listen aren't the ones making the big decisions. Our politicians are still turning to fossil fuels for economic recovery, signing off deals with international miners and largely ignoring climate change.

I follow a Keto diet and I treat myself to a few squares of this chocolate as a treat. It's the best tasting sugar-free chocolate on the market, I've tried them all. I agree with another commenter that too much can upset your stomach but for me that's pretty much all sugar substitutes, natural or otherwise.

I once went from long ginger ringlet curls to a chemically straightened short dark brunette bob with a fringe. My mother didn't recognise me.

Love seeing this support of small businesses. Remember, these cloth masks should be only worn for one day (4-6 hours) then washed before using again, so consider buying multiples if you need one daily. And try not to touch the cloth when putting it on/taking it off to prevent the spread of germs to your hands.

At least the hair matches the look now with the tattoos and piercings. The long blonde hair and moustache just looked wrong with such severe body art.

@redballoon Your comments about Chiropractors are ignorant. To become a practising Chiropractor in Australia, you need to complete 5 years of study. First, an accredited bachelor's degree in Health Science, followed by a two-year Master of Clinical Chiropractic. They actually study more course hours in Biology than a GP. They study less hours in pharmacological medicine.

Helen was most popular (9th) on the Aus stats from 1952, 53, 54, 56. But I was born in 69 (24th) and only went to school with two others. On the US charts it was most popular in 1918, so I'm guessing it was about the same here too but the Aus stats don't go back that far. All the other names on there for the 60s were in high rotation at my school, so 100% correct.

The Blue Mountains Music Festival has also been cancelled - it's devastating to our community. A three-day festival involving local businesses, accommodation, caterers, food and market stalls, volunteers, performers, ticket-holders, over a year of planning and organising has come to a halt.

Beautiful sentiments, Holly. I too feel lucky to be born who I am, where I am and know that it would be a lot harder being a woman elsewhere in the world. I teach my daughters the same thing. We must continue to care for those less lucky.
