    Will Ian "Molly" Meldrum ever work for Channel 7 again?

    In front of a room full of supporters, Ian Meldrum affectionately known as Molly walked slowly to the front and took a seat in front of a microphone.

    His reason for attending the Readings Bookstore on Acland Street, St Kilda tonight was to launch his second book - "Ah well, Nobody's Perfect - the untold stories"

    With his red-headed grumpy and moody assistant Yael Cohn in the front row, Molly took questions from the audience about his experiences on TV and his well known...

    When a living treasure like David Hockney visits our shores, it might be tempting to hold a blockbuster retrospective. Instead, the NGV, in collaboration with Hockney’s studio, has chosen to comprehensively explore Hockney’s works of the past decade.

  • Most men don’t realise age is a factor in their fertility too

    Most men don’t realise age is a factor in their fertility too

    In a recent survey, most men didn’t think their age was a big factor in their fertility

    Most people want to have children sometime in their life and expect this will happen when the time is right for them. In Australia, the “right” time to have a first child has shifted from being in the mid-twenties a few decades ago to around 30 today. In 1991, less than a quarter(23%) of women having their first child were over the age of 30. In 2012 this had risen to more than half (55%).

  • THE STATE OF PLAY

    THE STATE OF PLAY





    Let me break the news to those who haven’t awakened yet to the terrible reality of politics. There is no Left or Right anymore. There is just the craven lust for power and to keep the globalists happy in their bid to create a New World Order. By the way, this vision of an Utopian world may not include you or I, unless we make a heap of money rather quickly.

  • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    Iraqi Civil War



    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?
    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...

    by Isobel Blackthorn
