Say no to Roe

Beeliar wetlads

I was having a lovely visit to Beeliar wetlands, south of Perth, when I came across a rally of lots of people down by the lake. There was a band playing and some stalls.

Save the wetlansI was handed a sign which said ‘Save the Wetlans’ and ‘Say No Roe’, which I found  very confusing. I asked a few questions and realised that the rally was protesting against the construction of a big highway extension right through the middle of this beautiful ecosystem…

As the last of my kind, a wandering gnomad due to the destruction of my habitat, I joined in the protest and showed my support for the protest, listened to the speakers and joined in on the rally.

Save these wetlands! Say no to the Roe highway extension!

My Christmas Cracker tomorrow in Preston

Come and see me at the New Continental down by the river in Preston Town Centre tomorrow at 1pm. It’s only a short walk from Preston station, and the trains are all running fine now.

Even if you choose to drive, Preston is only 30 minutes from Manchester, Liverpool and Lancaster so there’s no excuse not to come, really.

I had a brilliant time today with Rachel down the New Continental with stories and songs for a lovely audience of all ages. I made the ladies giggle, Rachel parcelled the children up in a giant Christmas bow, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer appeared and we all cheered when his Christmas dream came true.

Seniors Week at Scitech

After my visit to Scitech in Perth, Australia, I was invited back as one of the three special guests at the launch of seniors week this week at Scitech.

I had a grand time drinking the FREE TEA and munching on the FREE BISCUITS and meeting all the other visitors, including 104 year-old Peg

Later I handed my flip video to a passing senior and got him to film me talking to Garry about the amazing Segway. You can watch it below.
