I read something today that indicated that a cut to FTB part B has been confirmed. Apparently it will be rolled into the FTB part A and means testing will cap it at people earning $100 K over year ...

I had a tubal ligation last year, at the age of 32. I had very little difficulty getting the doctor to agree to do it. He explained the procedure, the risks, and the alternatives, and when he was s...

kerriej replied to topic Gov't scrapping Advisory Panel for marketing Infant Formula.

I don't know where they should be cutting, but getting the debt ceiling raised isn't a good sign in my opinion. I also think that surely there are better options than privatising HECS deb...

My children believe in santa, and yes I have encouraged it, just like I have encouraged them to believe in fairies and ghosts and other such things that people may or may not believe in. For us the...

kerriej replied to topic Study with a toddler + being pregnant, advice!?

I imagine that would be intense; a lot of things to learn in a relatively short amount of time! It's also quite practical, so I can see why it's not possible externally. You could just wa...

kerriej replied to topic Study with a toddler + being pregnant, advice!?

Yes, when you describe it in that way, I tend to agree with you; it might just be too much to take on all at once, and you will be busy/stressed in those early months after having your baby, and it...

Yes I see where you are coming from. I suppose my perspective may not be the norm, but I do believe I have an enlightened perspective on many things, not just autism. It often shocks me that others...
