    sharks

    Possibly controversal post but hey ... Just hoping for people thoughts not a bashing for posting Tragically another fatal shark attack in WA. Sympathies to the family for their loss - genuine - loss of life for any family is sad. This incident tragic - thoughts with the family. But people sharks are in the sea. They do not have cloaks of invisibility walk on land making random attacks. We know they are there folks. People make choices to swim surf kayak ect. Weighing up the risks each individual makes a choice. Are shark attacks more frequent? Could it be that more people going in the sea. Could there be an enviromental factor behind increased attacks? Will we ever know? Just hoping for a discussion on folks. Stay safe out there people

    Secret Harbour schooling

    . Try and google Mandurah Mail Telegraph and The Courier. They are the local free newspapers. Also theres a Rockingham crime report facebook page also think theres one for Mandurah .... We lived in the "golf course island " in SH one if the better parts moved 2 years ago. I had people jumping garden wall and using it as a short cut through golf course to other side. Razor wire didnt stop it but when we got rottweiler it did.

    457 Visas Stopped

    We came on a 457 in 2012. Hubby arrived first golden promises from employer did not materialise threat of redundancy loomed after 3 months. Very distressing time. We plodded on. Realised that with Johns age after the 2 years gaining PR would be zilch ---- lodgement of visa has to be done prior to turning 50. In all fairness the company when informed put hubby forward for PR after 8 months PR after 16 months we only ever paid for medicals xray and police checks and our container. Rule of thumb we shouldnt be here I think we are an exception to the rule sobto speak. Luckily we still are for now. We never intend to spend the rest of our lives here. Citizen ceremony in 3 weeks. I will always remain Welsh with duel nationality I will never be Australian I was born in Wales. If you become a citizen and want to be referred to as Australian thats your choice but you really wont be. ..... 457 should be named the heartbreak visa

    Ancestory dna

    Thought I would share this Well I have always been curious about my family history, so started to track my family tree. Just before Xmas as a present to me from me I sent for the ancestry DNA kit. The results came in yesterday not so startling but here you go Ireland 41% Great Britain 20% Scandinavia 19% Iberian Peninsula 11% Italy/Greece 4% Europe West 1% Europe East 1% Asia South 1% Finland North West Russia 1% The remaining 1% must be alien lol I knew of the Irish heritage but I really thought that my British percentage would be far more. So there must have been Irish heritage on my mothers side some where down the line also. Also guessed that there would be a smattering of Scandinavia as the Vikings invaded but its a fairly large percentage. As for the South Asia well its said we are all related to Genghis Khan so that explains that. Perhaps also my love of India, Indian food and Greece its part of my make up. It came with a rather large print out and graph a very interesting read.
