You know what's been going on with offshore indefinite detention, right? Again, this should be no surprise.

I'm tolerant of anyone else's views as long as they don't impinge on others' rights in a supposed secular state. I think that's fairly standard for most of the countries who have moved forward on...

LOL.

It seems so in many ways. Marriage equality adopted. More reasonable attitudes re vaccine choice. Recognition of Indigenous sovereignty and language (Maori/Te Reo is an official language). We...

You do recall that we selectively vaccinate, right? :wink:

I do think they underestimated the Australian government in terms of what it will do to prevent the entry of people or organisations...

We've only ever gone to the GP for vaccines. DD even misses school the day of scheduled vaccines just in case of any errors. Our GP has been pretty good, we wait around for about 10-15 minutes...

He's not in pain, nor has he been with his teeth. He's nine and most of his adult teeth are in for now, save some molars. Thanks anyway. He would probably wear an amber necklace anyway just for the...

First, just want to say that I emphathise with your kids. Local anesthesia has never worked for me and any dentist appointment requires double to triple the dose. I'm usually numb for 6-8 hours after...

I'm just going to pipe in with my two cents. I have a lot of amalgam, it was the go-to filling when I was growing up in the 80s and I had a rough patch as a pre-teen when I got most of that amalgam...

If they have a mobile, get them to call or text you. You can either pick your child up or advise them what to do. That is if your child has access. Mine can text me during breaks and lunch, so we're...
