We all love our food of course?... and the yummier it is the more we want to eat right? But while they might be yummy, how does the SIZE of a meal affect how much weight we can potentially put on just by eating too much or too fast?...

Plus we also wanted to know how are people who’ve been forced to work from home due to the COVID pandemic coping with their food intake?

We recently caught up with our resident Dietician Caitlyn Hend...

It’s pretty well agreed that music – the right kind of music – can help soothe the soul and make people feel better…

Whether you’re looking at it or getting involved in making it, Robyn Robinson – who we met in the Cairns Cool Waters Caravan Park has proof positive anyone and everyone is innately creative and once they connect with that inner artist they feel better and more inspired to focus and create a better ...

And while some people have jumped on the idea they’ll feel better eating gluten free as a lifestyle thing – true coeliacs don’t have a choice. Like Jenni Erbel who just happens to be married to that bloke you hear at the start and end of our podcasts Col Mooney…

Do you have kids? What about fur-kids or feathered kids? Or do you have just one kid or one pet? Whether you’re travelling or not, seems everyone has an opinion about the merits or problems of having an ‘only child’ whether human or animal – are they lonely? Do they get spoilt? Longtime friend, Veterinarian and CEO of Pets Australia Dr Joanne Sillince is her to help answer the question… “Are Solo pets OK?”

Did you know your eyes produce mucus which washes away dust and other irritating stuff in the air every time you blink? But when you’re asleep and obviously not blinking that mucusy stuff doesn’t get washed away and you end up with crusty stuff when you wake up – politely known as ‘sleep’ in your eyes or better known as eye boogers.

Our pets get it too and it’s perfectly normal… most of the time…but not always and if you notice an...

During our zig zag tour of Far North QLD on our way to Cairns we stopped off in the small coastal town of Cardwell for a few days. Great beaches and strong community given they were all but wiped off the map by Cyclone Yasi in 2011. Anyway we couldn't resist trying out a pie or two at the famous 'Jesse's Pies' - This amazing beachside pop-up kitchen has been in operation for over 40 years with brother’s Rob and Greg...

There's caravan parks... and then there's the Secura Lifestyle Magnetic Gateway Townsville QLD in the suburb of Cluden! We spent a couple of nights there on our way north and really enjoyed the 'community spirit' of the park especially @ 5pm 'drinkies'. We also managed to chat with the (at the time) new managers of the park and had a lot of fun chatting with some of the 'residents'. It's dog ...

Do you use soap?... not everyone does for many reasons – including Kaye! – although we should say she used to be a soap-free product fan – but as you’re about to hear, a very talented lady we met in Hervey Bay in QLD is on a one-woman mission to make us all devotees of her hand-made designer soaps.
