“A rock hole, a young dingo has died in one of the holes, it was removed to keep the holes clean, water was in one of the holes, these traditional owners showing us these holes and showing us the land had their music and song playing in the Toyotas, I ask about the song. Our walk to these lands was to walk in the foot step of people of this land, it turned out that the song that was playing, was that the song of the song line that they were showing us at that moment in time. They play it when they check out the rock holes and move on the song line, we walked up here on an ancient land, I discovered that I was walking on a culture highway that has been walked on for more than fourty thousand years, listing to the song that would tell us the was to go, they live and breath the past, the present and still walk on into their future, I was with people that could show me the time that they have lived on this land, I would be proud of the link to the land to, it pleases me to be here to see a ancient culture today.” – Noonie

You have to thing for second that when you pay staff, who making them for you at Christmas. It people from second and third world country.

Corporate using Jesus birth as a way to make money for them self. By telling people on the media to pay toy’s and gifts at this Christmas time. They have being doing this staff for years and it need to stop. If you what to do something for Christmas and don’t want corporate to get richer. Don’t pay no toy’s or gift at this Christmas.
