Re: Need a new vacum , any recommendations

I owned a Dyson and recently replaced it with a Miele 5211. I wasn't happy with the Dyson, the suction was poor with me having to chase the bits around to suction them up and the plastic parts fell...

Re: Pauline Hanson - O the irony!

Re: Pauline Hanson - O the irony!

LOL Vash!

Re: JAMAICANS IN AUSTRALIA

Apparently some of the early convicts were black West Indians. I met a woman who was fostering our dog and she told me that her ancestor was a black man on the first fleet. I was surprised but then...

Re: kids vaccinations

I'm not particularly surprised actually. It's well known that the UK has had a lower than desired take up of the MMR since the 1990s a la Wakefield and this can be evidenced by the 13 year high of...

Re: kids vaccinations

Re: kids vaccinations

Re: kids vaccinations

I think it's quite well known that pertussis is the least well controlled disease of the vaccinable diseases (you can see that on the charts in the link I provided).
