Red elephants on our Christmas cover symbolise prosperity and protection. And because elephants are highly social animals, they are also considered symbols of loyalty, companionship and unity, so it is believed they bring harmony in family bonds. Perfect spirits for Christmas.

Notice the elephants have upturned trunks. This symbolises good fortune. Often in Asian, African and Indian festivals, people make offerings to elephants by anointing them with special oils and decorations, like our cover duo. It's a way of asking that families and communities be blessed with success and good fortune. According to Feng Shui, elephants sporting uplifted trunks should face the front door to welcome good chi, or positive energy into the home or office.

Gift voucher extension I’m an elderly man and it’s hard for me to get out to buy presents for family and friends so I like to purchase gift vouchers from local businesses. Doing this just got better. New federal laws from November this year require gift vouchers to remain valid for at least 3 years. And the law requires businesses to prominently display the voucher's expiry date on the card. - Paul Tomson At sea Having travelled in Asia a number of times and seeing rubbish piled up along river banks waiting for the next flood to wash it all away into the sea, it begs the question: Why aren’t we doing more about plastics going into our oceans? View this short video filmed on an island in the Pacific to see what I mean. - Mike Holtby www.player.vimeo.com/video/218502282?app_ id=122963&wmode=opaque

Mars Madness Exploration of Mars offers new toys for scientists to probe outer space and for politicians to spend taxpayer's money for self aggrandisement, but then what - exploit whatever is valuable on Mars and leave space junk behind. Wake up politicians. Fix the mess humans have made here instead of making another mess in space. - Helena Hodder Y11 Youth Voice Shopping problems In MLL/July the magazine published an article on the demise of retail shopping (The instant economy is killing retail). I believe shoppers still like the physical shopping experience, but they are frustrated by out of stock items, insufficient payment options, queues, and poorly trained staff, or lack of staff. Shops that prioritise queue-busting technology such as paying on

From the Mayor City of Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM With the festive season now upon us it is a perfect time to take a break while reflecting on some of the year’s greatest achievements before another big year ahead. The recent opening of the Salisbury Community Hub was a wonderful experience which brought together all parts of our community to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in the City of Salisbury. If you are yet to visit the Hub – located in Salisbury’s City Centre at 34 Church Street – it is worth exploring and offers a range of features including publicly accessible computers, charging stations, modern library with features including a 3D printer, café and a range of bookable and casual indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. Council’s customer services and home and community help services are also located at the Hub. Another exciting project underway is the Create-A-Place Public Art Program, which is transforming local spaces with vibrant artwork – budding artists should keep an ear out in the coming months for Council’s next round of expressions of interest! I wish you and your family a safe and very merry festive season and hope to see many of your faces at the upcoming Mawson Lakes Community Christmas Carols.

And Nigella

Community Conversations continued from page 5 Glamour in the department store I’m a lady in my 70s from the era of elegant shopping in big department stores. I remember when a trip to town (Sydney) to a fancy store like David Jones was a thrilling day out. Women dressed up in hats, handbags and gloves. They strolled along the street admiring the elaborate designer window displays and entered DJ at ground level to the sound of a live grand piano and sweetly scented air. Quality was everything, from stationery to beautiful gowns, and a surplus of staff to professionally fit underwear and footwear. Not anymore. Cost savings led to cuts to staff numbers and staff training, and cheap imports undermined the exclusive brands. The glamour of shopping began to wear thin and in its place came digital shopping offering convenience without having to dress up, travel to town, park and grow foot-weary. Sadly the big department stores are a fading icon of my youth. - Linda Bartrop

Hotel security Scary for us to hear about the robbery and stabbing at the Mawson Lakes Hotel because we often drive down the road to eat there and attend functions. The hotel was one of 36 pubs robbed this year. Hotel owners are calling on the police to do more, but police can’t be everywhere. Pubs are soft targets whose owners need to upgrade their security to protect their staff and patrons. They need more security guards, staff training for emergency situations, safer layout of pubs, and the use of technology, such as DNA spray and CCTV in gaming rooms and bottle shops. - B. O’Donnell, Salisbury Lost ducklings We have a lot of ducks in Mawson Lakes and if you are out walking you may see injured or orphaned ducklings. Despite the best efforts of mum to keep the family together, some naughty little ducklings wander off and get into


trouble with foxes, dogs and cats. Here is what to do. Firstly look for their parents or siblings and reunite them. If the parents are no longer to be seen, collect the tiny orphans. Give them a towel to snuggle into and a warm wheat bag or a warm soft drink bottle to prevent hypothermia which can be a killer. Ducklings can jump high so a box with a lid and air holes is suitable. Do not attempt to feed or water. Contact Fauna Rescue on 8289 0896

I have a very good feeling about my job interview today. The manager said they were looking for somebody responsible. "You’ve found your man" I responded, "Whenever there was a problem in my last job, they always said that I was RESPONSIBLE!"

No timeline on the completion of the entire development however.

Learning the ropes by Nigella Boats are part of my history. When I was a little puppy my dad Ben (Linda's son) was a rower and he would tuck me into his jacket and we’d go training on the river just as the sun was waking up. When he became a rowing coach we would head out in a noisy tinny and dash up and down the river. Later Ben took up sailing and I learnt the ropes on Sydney Harbour. Balance and swimming came to me at an early age. But it was a different kind of boat we recently looked at in Port Adelaide. These were old sailing ships that travelled the world with cargo. We checked out the Falie (100 years old) and the clipper City of Adelaide (1864). This ship transported goods and people between England and Adelaide. It was salvaged all the way from Scotland and is now being restored in Adelaide. Its new home will soon be Dock 2 so you can go and see it there for yourself. A perilous journey awaited these old ships and as I listened to awful tales of stormy shipwrecks I was glad I wasn’t "ship's dog" learning the ropes on these old timers.

5 TIPS FOR A PERFECT CHEESECAKE When you’ve got the know-how it's easy to make a fabulous looking cheesecake. Follow these tips: 1. Plan ahead Take the cream cheese out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before use so it's soft, easy to work with and you won’t get lumps in your cheesecake. 2. Build a perfect base Use a drinking glass to tightly press the biscuit mix into a straight sided dish. Chill in the fridge until firm before adding filling. 3. Don’t overtake If a cheesecake bakes for too long or at too high a temperature, it will be dry and the surface will brown and crack. It’s cooked if you gently shake the pan and the filling has a slight wobble in the centre. 4. Avoid cracking If you remove the baked cheesecake from the oven suddenly it can crack, so turn off the oven, leave to door ajar and rest your creation in the oven to cool completely, then chill it in the fridge. 5. Cut clean Cheesecakes can be messy to cut, so select a long-bladed knife, run it under very hot water and wipe dry. Cut the cheesecake in half, then in quarters, then slices. Rinse the knife after each cut and work quickly while the knife is hot and clean.
