Health-hindering lockdowns are by no means fun. The routine COVID-19 “stay home” decrees were agreeably necessary when little was known about the virus. 19 months on, government decrees are less about preserving health, and more about governments serving themselves.

It’s with this in mind that I’m reluctant to give out ideas for ...

The Race is Afoot: Time to Focus on the Finish Line

A life around the family home can at times feel like a race to complete each day’s requirements. Recently, like many others, I find myself being forced to slow down in what is usually a busy lifestyle. Caught trying to understand the current ‘Covid’ life and reflecting on what was, before covid.

Men — We Need Each Other

We need each other. The saying from Proverbs is true: “As iron sharpens iron, so does a man sharpen the face of his friend.” Robert Louis Stevenson put it this way: “No man is useless while he has a friend.” Dr John Tickell, a specialist in the keys for a long life, talks about the importance of the Ace of Clubs. His thesis is that we all need friends and family, ...

Having worked closely with Professor John MacDonald in 2007, we were successful in getting a national Men’s Health Policy across the line in Federal Parliament. Furthermore, we include a complete session on men’s health in every Good to Great Fathering Course because a healthy father is much better than a dead father. Generally speaking, men can be their own worst ...

The father of two left behind two young children and his wife. Thankfully, neither his wife or two children were infected with the virus, nor his two employees.
