What Does it even Mean? - to be Australian?  


The value of locally generated indy-media was very apparent by 1984 as citizens become aware of the wrecking ball of globalism destroying the heart and leaving only remnants and facades of the Australian capital cities.

Season Fourteen: The Light Heart   HUMOUR


Canada is to the U.S as New Zealand is to Aussie.  Whitefallas seem to function better in a cold climate.  Like parsnips.

SOCIAL INNOVATION is part of any faith walk and it runs in the family.   Left  Mum Norma Rolfe (R.I.P) - Spiritual  leader and Maori elder.  For me as a youth there were many great local Maori to look up to in political 
and public life.  The local Indigenous voice is vitality, bringing mana to national Identity.                Ngahau and Debbie Davis
