I have just signed a petition at change.org asking that Coles increase the price of their generic milk so that dairy farmers get a fair price for their milk. I hope you'll join me because dairy farmers are walking off their farms and if that continues, not only will there be no cheap milk, there will be no fresh milk. Since Coles began selling cheap milk in 2011, 45 Queensland dairy farmers have closed their businesses. I wonder what is happening in the other states. We do not want to import milk. There is still a huge need for signatures - only 1400 have signed and we need 10,000. This is important, it will take you one minute to sign, you don't have to have your signature displayed publically if you don't want that. If you're living in Australia, please sign ... click here. If you have a blog, I urge you to put this link up so your readers can sign too. Tell your friends and family, the people at the club, at school, at work. This is important for every Australian.

And from our comments during the week:
As the weeks whizz by quickly, I'm starting to think about Christmas and what we'll be doing. It's only eight weeks away now; have you started preparing? Thanks for your visits this week. I'll be back tomorrow to show you a beautiful and unusual gift I received yesterday and on Sunday to tell you about a special offer for advertising here before Christmas. Till then. xx♥xx
