Arm Yourself

April 12, 2016

On the weekend we ordered some native plants and trees for our garden as well as seedlings for our winter vegie crop (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, parsnips, carrots, winter greens and peas).

There’s been a lot of noise in the media in recent weeks  about the flu ‘hitting’ Australia... and it’s about this time every year that we see similar headlines and reports. The thing to remember though is that the flu is a virus that has been around for thousands of years and every year, at about this time, we are at a higher risk of infectio....

Channel 9 news recently reported (16/4/12) that each year 80,000 Australians will get the flu. 15,000 of these flu victims will end up in hospital with a further 2,000 deaths.
