Only last week the sky was putrid and now floods and hail, ‘Straya, you gotta love it, But let’s not forget what is still an ongoing affair.
So no more talk from me about climate change from me, Too much BS involved with those words, let’s call it what it is….overpopulation and degradation of the earth. Mismanagement by our leaders for  long long time. OH by the by Scomo is not a baby boomer, so that makes him part of the Y gen I guess, so we can’t really be blamed any longer HAHAHA!

"BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE" Bushfire Appeal

This Sunday 19/01/2020,
at the Bridge Hotel,
119 Victoria Rd, Rozelle NSW 2039.
Kicking off at 4 pm and going until 10 pm so you can all get away early for work on Monday.
We have chosen to give what we raise to RFSA, there is an account below which you donate directly to if you want a tax concession (and why not) otherwise all monies raised on the day will go to a general account which is the divided out  to the needy.
There is no admin costs associated with the RFSA as that was sorted in the last budget so all that is raised goes to those with the greatest need, Where you would start I could hardly imagine.

Benefit Gig

Howdy All

I mentioned about Keith and Helen, who have lost their house in the current bushfires the went through the south of NSW.
Have had a pretty good response to a benefit for them and those around who have also lost all.
Tomorrow I will be working on a venue, what we might do is have a jam with a few ACTs to finish the night off, as Helen and Keith were regular attendees at the Caro while they lived in Sydney, so if you know someone who can contribute to this cause which is close to us all, pass it on, no politicising the situation, it’s just F%^$ed UP.
I will be collecting anything you have to spare and will take it down, blankets, sheets, cutlery, Most people will move into rentals if the can find one which now be at a premium and will need this sort of stuff at the very least.

Bushfire Benefit
I have a venue, The Bridge,
I have a date 19/1/20
So get back to me now and let me know if you can do this date

Now I need some info on how to set this up properly so it is all legit and above board. Anyone who knows how this works can you pass on info to me, I will set up a bank account later this week for those who can’t make it but want to donate
