This is an ambitious project to try and confirm numbers of vegans.

Urgent help needed for the Canberra kangaroos

Posted on July 10, 2013 at 18:22 1 Comment

The Australian Society for Kangaroos has been in court this week trying to stop a cull of kangaroos indigenous to the area.

The real problem is that the area is the seat of Federal Government with head offices for public sector agencies, and the ACT Government relies heavily on the revenue it receives from the continual turnover in housing and the explosion of building…

One of my favourite poems by DH Lawrence.  I was reminded of this today when a young woman in a shop squashed a spider on the counter just as I said 'DON'T" and before I could stop her. I said 'why did you do that?' and she asked what I'd have done with it and I said 'put it outside.'  But I recalled being afraid of spiders as a child, my mother telling me I was afraid of them,  and how long it took me to treat them respectfully.
