My sister in NJ sent a package on March 20. Today July 15, we received that package in Australia. It took 117 days but I’m glad we finally got it! Our parcel must have passed many hands and I hope that each of those people are safe and sound!
I woke up to the news that Chris Cornell, the former lead singer of the 1990s band Soundgarden had taken his life at the age of 52. And just like anyone’s death, whether I knew them or not, made me sad, even more so knowing that he had committed suicide. I asked MJ if he […]
A part of me would like to say that I was partying the night away dressed in a slinky cowl neck midi dress with matching heels when the clock struck 12AM ringing in 2017 but no, I wasn’t. I was asleep. MJ had stayed awake with the guise that he was so cool he was going to […]

So today is the 4th of July in Australia which means nothing to Australians. Tomorrow when it’s the 4th of July in America, everyone will be celebrating America’s Independence and I really hope they know what they’re celebrating and that the people in this video were just the minority.
Interesting read. I’ve noticed most of these things, however, I’ve also noticed people take undrunk wine or uneaten food that they have brought to a party back home with them. If I bring it to a party, I leave it for the host to enjoy or give away or toss out, if necessary. But I […]
