Teddy Pendergrass's 'Close the Door'. Judas Crust on a cracker, where do I even begin with Sir Pendergrass? I've had several lusty* adventures with Teddy, and am ever so grateful that I was introduced to Teddy - the Man, the God.

Last night saw unprecedented measures of anger, disbelief and absolute exasperation surrounding the 60 Minutes interview with disgraced 'wellness' blogger and creator of The Whole Pantry empire, Belle Gibson. For once, I went against my better judgment and watched the interview and as a cancer survivor, I have a few things to say. Firstly, I … Continue reading Why I forgive Belle Gibson

I would run and dance … Continue reading Summer in the city
