Take care of our birds and bees

If you wish to do one thing in point of fact great on your neighbourhood and your self, put some water on your lawn for the birds, bees and different flora and fauna.

It may be a big pedestal hen bathtub, an previous casserole dish or a plastic meat tray – they aren’t fussy, so long as there may be blank water in it.

Position a rock within the water for the bees to land on as they drown simply.

One of the water stations that I take care of are used totally through bees simplest and I’m at all times astonished at how a lot water they use in an afternoon.

It’s just right to test the degrees day-to-day, and the extra packing containers you will have across the position, the simpler.

They may be able to also be positioned in your nature strip in a sheltered space, in your neighbour’s nature strip (with their permission), or at your native reserve, park, cemetery or playground space.

Possibly close to your place of job…the chances are never-ending and there’s no such factor as too many.

If you’ll be able to do that small act of kindness your native space will grow to be a small haven for native flora and fauna.

Disgrace on him

So Minister Knoll, the “boy” who loves to play with toys like driverless buses, continues to be refusing to give a contribution $300000 to the heritage ‘Overland’ crucial teach provider.

Personally, this presentations no care or empathy for seniors, pensioners, other folks vulnerable to DVT, younger backpackers, rail fanatic vacationers, other folks with strolling frames, wheelchairs and information canines.

It’s due to this fact additionally my view that that is age and disabled discrimination on a grand scale?

The place is the Commissioner in this?

How can this guy sleep at night time, when the federal government has noticed are compatible to subsidise the pony racing business to the track of $24 million?

Turns out some subsidies are extra equivalent and extra vital than others?

Disgrace in this chilly, onerous bunch of monetary rationalists, who within the opinion of a rising selection of disgruntled electorate, will likely be a one-term executive?

Force promoting function issues

Your article ‘Time To Hit The Highway Safely’ (Force Promoting Function four December 2019) provides some very good and well timed recommendation on make our vehicles protected ahead of surroundings out on our summer season vacations.

On the other hand, as our vehicles is probably not leaving Australia the accompanying {photograph} of a left-hand pressure automobile in a right-hand visitors nation is beside the point to the item.

Additionally this automobile isn’t being pushed very safely.

The driving force has just one hand at the steerage wheel, his correct arm is wrapped across the shoulder of his woman passenger.

The passenger is waving her hands excitedly within the air suggesting that the car is travelling at prime pace.

They’re rapid drawing near a pointy left-hand bend which, if no longer treated accurately, may see them careering off the street and down the hill on their right-hand facet.

Closing, however no longer least, they aren’t dressed in seat belts.

I’m certain that neither the RAC nor the NRMA wish to be related to a photograph appearing such unsafe riding.

Excursion wonderful

Is it that the Excursion Down Beneath and the SA State Executive have learnt not anything?

How the heck can they appoint Stuart O’Grady to move up the TDU after he admitted to doping on the 1998 Excursion de France?

Clearly, drug offences cling extra weight within the Barossa Valley, the place they got rid of the identify of Jack Bobridge from the bicycle observe after he was once discovered to blame of drug offences.

The biking global simply will get extra wonderful, day-to-day.

Hearsay has it that O’Grady was once simplest 2d selection, they first presented it to Lance Armstrong however his asking worth was once too prime.
