hen I paused to think about the significant people in my life – the most important, the most influential and the most financially successful – I realised that only a small percentage of these have a university degree. Of those without a degree, the majority undertook an apprenticeship or other training, while the others are completely self-taught. These people hold significant management roles within recognised Australian companies; they own successful businesses and, they are people who have come from humble beginnings and are now achieving their dreams. As someone who is university trained, I have the utmost respect for tertiary education. Higher education is what gives us doctors, surgeons, teachers – people who help make society a better place. However, university is not the answer for everyone and it certainly doesn’t guarantee success. This week, Leigh Robshaw takes a look into the world of apprenticeships and upskilling to discover what opportunities are available to younger generations. Also this week, we celebrate the success of Sunshine Coast pro-surfer Julian Wilson, who is steadily climbing the WSL ladder. We wish him all the best for the next round of competition. Until next week, take care.

WINNING WOMAN Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Mount Coolum. First job? Working at a women’s only gym called Shape Up. It was tiny and the equipment was rubbish, but I loved it. What are you currently working on? Professionally I am working on Jetts International growth into South East Asia. Personally, my fitness for the Barossa marathon in October. Your family includes. . . Ben, my husband and Jasmin my 11-year-old daughter. First car? An electric blue Ford Escort with gold ‘go faster’ stripes. Loved that car but it got stolen and was found suspended between two trees by the police. Favourite book? A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, a moving story of a mother and daughter based in Afghanistan.

Favourite song? Purple Rain by Prince.


BIO Jetts Gym CEO Elaine Jobson was named 2017 Outstanding Business Woman of the Year at the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network awards. Her career has taken her around the world, from working for Richard Branson in South Africa, to setting up a chain of gyms in Indonesia and Malaysia. She makes a habit of doing things that scare her – she will complete her fourth marathon this year.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day I accepted a role working for Virgin in South Africa. People thought we were crazy moving to South Africa with a baby daughter but it turned out to be the start of one of the most rewarding journeys we have had as a family. Your greatest regret? I honestly don’t have any, everything I have ever done has brought me to where I am today and I love where I am.

“You have everything within you to be whatever you choose to be”

What are you reading now? Leadership Matters by David Pich from the Institute of Leaders and Managers. I was a guest author with a chapter on leading people, so enjoying reading the rest of the book.

Elaine Jobson

Best day in your life? Completing the London Marathon in 2011, it was the first one I ever did and all my family were there with homemade banners cheering me on.

Best advice you’ve been given? Spend time thoroughly understanding the problem before you decide on a solution. This advice has helped me make the right decisions and not rush into solving the wrong problems, a common error in business. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Spirit House restaurant and top of Mount Coolum at day break. I can’t choose. If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? A fast train to Brisbane airport.

Proudest achievement? When I see my team accomplish things I get super proud. Jetts recently achieved a place in the top 25 best places to work, a company goal we have all been working towards.

You are happiest when? At home with my husband and daughter on a Friday night with a glass of Cloudy Bay sav blanc and a pizza from Bulli.

What frustrates you the most? Negative people, it’s like they waste their life. Especially people who moan about First World problems – they should spend some time in Africa. How do you deal with your frustrations? I run. I find it clears my mind. Advice to your 18-year-old self? You will determine your destiny, not your upbringing or your qualifications. You have everything within you to be whatever you choose to be. Tea or coffee? Long black, dash of skim, or kombucha. NRL or AFL? The Premier League please, I’m English!

APPRENTICESHIPS: STILL A SOLID PATH TO SUCCESS National Skills Week is on August 28 to September 3 and highlights the fantastic opportunities apprenticeships and traineeships offer. We spoke to three Sunshine Coast locals who wouldn’t trade their jobs for anything. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“Trades are not for everyone but for me, it was the best choice. I think people just get in their head everyone has to go to university to get a good career” Chris Kaminski


t the age of 31, Dylan Fahey owns his own business, employs 50 people, is not far off paying off his home in Rosemount, owns two investment properties and is a shareholder in two separate businesses. And it all began with an apprenticeship. After completing Year 12 at St John’s College in Nambour, he started an environmental planning degree at Griffith University, but lasted only one semester. “I wasn’t totally convinced I was ready for university or even wanted to go to university, but it seemed like the next step. I just wasn’t engaged in it. I think after 12 years of being at school I was ready to get out and work and see what the real world was like. I wanted to be out and about, I wanted to use my hands a little bit more. Sitting around in a classroom just didn’t sit well with me, so I deferred. I didn’t know if I was going to go back and I wanted to leave the option there.” Fahey never did return to uni. He was offered a labouring job with a plumbing company in Brisbane and three months later, began an apprenticeship, completing his TAFE study at Nambour. “I did a four-year apprenticeship with Tacoma Plumbing. I worked on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Airlie Beach, Mackay… I travelled Queensland learning my trade. The appealing thing about doing an apprenticeship for me was that at least you

were earning money while learning.” Fahey finished his apprenticeship in 2007 and started his own company DYFA Plumbing, a commercial and residential plumbing company that has expanded throughout Queensland over the past 10 years. He’s now developing a program to train the future leaders of his company. “Some people just love being outside every day,” he says. “For guys out there every day working on the tools, they love it. Australia is an unreal place to live because

number of Australians taking on an apprenticeship has been on the decline over the past decade, with TAFE bosses accusing the government of forming policies that favour universities. Undoubtedly, there’s an image problem associated with apprenticeships: Australians tend to see university as the best pathway to success and apprenticeships a good option for those who didn’t get the marks for uni. This stigma is being addressed by organisations like the Business Council of

“The value of the Australian apprenticeship system is gargantuan – to small business, to the future of any skill-based industry and of course to the apprentice’s future career” Maria Faulder

there’s no restriction on your opportunities. Whether you want to go to university or take up a trade, you have as much ability to succeed in whatever you choose as any other person – it’s just about hard work. None of my senior leadership team has been to university and they’re still a part of something great.” But while Fahey is a true blue Aussie success story, apprenticeships are not the on-trend career choice in Australia today. The

Australia, which is calling on the Federal Government to modernise the apprenticeship system and make it more appealing to young people. Chief executive of the Business Council of Australia, Jennifer Westacott, says “Too many kids are being pushed into university. For a lot of them, university is not what they want to do with their lives, but there’s a stigma around doing an apprenticeship instead. Nobody

should think that an apprenticeship is a second-best option to a university degree. “Funding for universities and schools has soared over the last decade, but vocational education and training has gone backwards in funding. The number of apprentices in training has fallen by over 40 per cent over the last four years. That’s a difference of over 200 million apprentices who have missed out. If we keep letting this happen, there simply won’t be enough Australians with the skills we need for the future, especially in places like the Sunshine Coast. “We need urgent action. Federal and state governments need to commit to using the Skilling Australians Fund to develop a new vision for the apprenticeship system that makes it more attractive for employers and learners.” A spokesperson for the Department of Education and Training acknowledged apprenticeship numbers have declined in recent years, but said there are complex reasons for this: “The occupational structure of the labour market is continually changing due to a number of impacts such as technological change, a general trend towards occupations at higher skills levels, and within some industries a move away from tasks that can be undertaken through automation.” The spokesperson said while digital disruption has many worried a robot will be taking their jobs in future, the VET (vocational

21/08/2017 1:12:00 PM

FEATURE STORY education and training) sector could help provide a buffer. “VET, through its close links to industry and opportunities provided through apprenticeships/traineeships, is well positioned to provide the relevant training as new skills needs and occupations emerge. “Jobs Queensland, an independent entity established to provide advice to the Queensland Government on future skills needs, workforce planning and the apprenticeships and traineeships system, recently undertook stakeholder consultation on the strengths of the apprenticeships and traineeships system. There is a shared view about the need for the apprenticeship and traineeship system to play a key role in equipping industry and the workforce to respond to these changes.” In the 2017–2018 Federal Budget, the government announced it would allocate $1.5 billion to the Skilling Australians Fund to be used from 2017 to 2021. With matched funding from states and territories, it says it will support up to 300,000 apprenticeships, traineeships, pre-apprenticeships and higher apprenticeships in Australia. However, little detail has been given on how this will work and criticism has been levelled at the government for cutting TAFE funding.

CHANGING ATTITUDES Contributing to the underlying attitudes around apprenticeships are school guidance counsellors, who tend to favour university as the preferred option for students with good marks. Caloundra aircraft maintenance engineer Chris Kaminski, 33, knew he didn’t want to go to university – but his guidance counsellor had other ideas. “I wasn’t interested in going to university at all, much to the annoyance of the guidance counsellor at school,” he says. “I didn’t take much notice of my OP and I didn’t think about uni at all. The guidance counsellor said ‘you have to apply to university and you have to apply for three or four courses’. It’s just a normal thing to do – leave school and go to university. I didn’t listen. “I don’t believe university is for everyone. At the end of Year 10 I was holidaying on the



Dylan Fahey

• In May 2016, there were 188,600 people aged 15 to 64 years who were employed as apprentices or trainees as part of the Australian Apprenticeship Scheme. • The majority of apprentices or trainees were male (76 per cent). • As in previous years, construction was the most common industry for apprentices and trainees (41 per cent). • On the Sunshine Coast, there are 4946 (5.1 per cent of the population) people in technical or further education compared with 12,509 at university or a tertiary institution (12.9 per cent of the population). SOURCE: ABS 2016

Sunshine Coast and my parents saw a training college advertising a six-month course. We went along and had a chat to them. They persuaded me to keep going to Year 12, to get my OP, but I didn’t look at it much after I received it. I wasn’t going down the route of university. After Year 12, I’d had enough of school and I was more of a hands-on person.” Kaminski moved from Maryborough to the Sunshine Coast after graduating to complete a certificate two in aeroskills at the Queensland Institute of Aviation Engineering (no longer operating). He finished the course

early and worked with a respected engineer at Caloundra Airport for four weeks before being offered an apprenticeship. “I worked for him for five years, got my licence within four years and then another opportunity came up at Redcliffe Airport, so I started working there for Heliflite in 2007.” Kaminski is now the base manager of the Queensland branch of Heliflite, has travelled the world for work and undertakes additional theory and practical training each year, whether it be on a new aircraft type or new engine model, and is considering studying a business management course in the future. “Trades are not for everyone but for me, it was the best choice,” he says. “I think people just get in their head everyone has to go to university to get a good career. The stigma is you must apply to university to get a good career and well paying job. I’m a big believer in getting a trade behind you and whatever extra training you want to do, you can always do it later.” Kaminski employs school leavers and mature age students as apprentices and looks for people who don’t necessarily have top marks, but are good with their hands and show an interest in mechanics – like building computers or fixing cars or motorbikes as hobbies – and show they can buckle down and learn in short bursts. “The four years of an apprenticeship is really hard in regards to the work load, education and social aspects,” he says. “Your friends are at university, studying and able to go out, while you are working long hours. But after four years, you’ll be trade recognised and while other people are only starting out in their chosen careers, you will be well ahead financially and with real-life experience.” The quality of training provided in apprenticeships has been a source of contention and is one area it’s hoped the new Skilling Australians Fund will remedy, through the requirement of greater accountability of training providers. Hairdressing is on the Federal Government’s skills shortage list, but while state governments have been paying training colleges thousands of dollars per student, many employers say they’re churning out

worthless qualifications that leave many hairdressers unemployable. Maria Faulder, owner of Suite Three Hair in Buderim won the Micro/Small Business Woman of the Year 2016 at the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards. She says quality training is paramount to the success of the apprenticeship system. “Our RTO (registered training organisation) is HATS, owned by Shelley Drane. She is the best educator in South East Queensland. Together, L’Oreal, HATS and I are training my apprentices to be the ultimate hair professionals in an industry where we have gained true credibility and respect as a really skilled profession that is regulated by the Australian Hairdressing Council.” Faulder says when she began her hairdressing apprenticeship back in the UK in 1986, hairdressing apprenticeships were yet to reach the list of ‘respected qualifications’. Today, she’s an award-winning business woman who will fly to the US in September to work as a stylist for New York Fashion Week. “I have trained five apprentices since launching my business in 2008 while gaining a reputation for amazing colour work and being participants on over 40 Australian runways. One of them has gone on to achieve national recognition on L’Oreal Professional’s creative team. “During the past nine years I have rewarded my apprentices with trips overseas to Bali and Thailand for hair industry conferences and I have secured places for them backstage at many national fashion events. I love to reach up high for opportunities to give to my apprentices in return for commitment and dedication.” Faulder has also converted two schoolbased apprentices to full-time apprentice status over the past five years, saying the opportunity to offer this foot in the door for young people is very rewarding. “The value of the Australian apprenticeship is gargantuan – to small business, to the future of any skill-based industry and of course to the apprentice’s future career. These young people bring enthusiasm and breathe new life into many businesses.”

MAJOR STADIUM COULD BE ON THE HORIZON A detailed feasibility study will be undertaken by the Sunshine Coast Council to potentially develop a 25,000seat, national-standard stadium at the current Sunshine Coast Stadium site in Bokarina. Mayor Mark Jamieson says there is no doubt a major sports facility NRL trial game, February 2017, Sunshine Coast Stadium. Photo by Rod McGillivray with the capability to stage national sport events is a “missing piece” of the core economic and community infrastructure mix for a region of our size and projected growth. Work done by KPMG to date has focused on the best site for a stadium of this size. Now, with Bokarina locked in as the preferred destination, a full feasibility study will be undertaken and presented to the council in early 2018.

SUNSHINE COAST ART PRIZE 2017 FINALISTS UNVEILED Two local artists are among the 39 finalists whose artworks were unveiled at Caloundra Regional Gallery, marking the opening of the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2017 exhibition.

8000 WORLD’ FITTEST WOMAN CROWNED The Crossfit Games has been touted as one of the world’s toughest sports events and Tia-Clair Toomey has claimed the title of Fittest Woman on Earth after winning the event. The Olympic weightlifter, who grew up on a Sunshine Coast cane farm, finished two points ahead of runner-up Kara Webb to secure the win. Toomey has placed second in two previous attempts at the Crossfit Games and also lifted for Australia at the Rio Olympic Games. Toomey was Australia’s top-ranked female weightlifter, when she finished 14th at the Olympics.

More than 8000 competitors lined up at Alexandra Headland to take on various events in the sixth annual 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Running Festival. The festival injected $2.7 million into the region and has already raised in excess of $1 million for local charities and community groups. It was a weekend full of spectacular racing. Victorian Elkie Belcher crushed the women’s race record by seven minutes, while Clay Dawson took out the men’s race with his second marathon win in as many weeks. Dawson, who used to weight 120 kilograms, had come off the back of a win at the Brisbane Marathon the week before competing on the Coast.

JOIN IN CONFETTI TORNADOS AND SLIME FIGHTS The Sunshine Coast Stadium will be the first venue in the world to host the biggest global colour festival series on earth, The Color Movement, securing this event ahead of larger national and international city counterparts.

Wurtulla student Skylah Hamill ditched cheerleading for mixed martial arts and hasn’t looked back, writes Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


kylah Hamill may be small in stature, but this dynamo can pack a punch. Wurtulla’s Hamill is the new Muay Thai World Champion in the 10–11 year girls 38-kilogram division… and she has steamrolled her opposition in just five fights to get there. It is an even more impressive accomplishment given the 11-year-old only discovered the sport 18 months ago. Hamill’s first fight in February this year saw her take out gold at the nationals to be crowned the Australian Champion for her division. Her second fight secured her the Coastal Warfare win here on the Coast, and her latest three bouts were in Bangkok for the IFMA World Championships from August 3 to 11. In 40-degree heat, Hamill beat a Thai opponent, automatically won when her Swedish opponent failed to show, and took out the gold medal by beating her New Zealand opponent in the final round.

Hamill had tried her hand at cheerleading before moving on to mixed martial arts, but it wasn’t until she gravitated to the full contact of Muay Thai that mum Sarah Lewis says she “came alive”. “She was a very shy, quiet girl and no-one could understand how she has been able to do what she does. But she gets into the ring and she just transforms,” Lewis says. “She is more confident now and her school work has become amazing. She sets her own alarm and gets up and gets dressed ready for the day. She is very disciplined in all areas.” Under the guidance of Joe Hilton at the Sunshine Coast Thai Boxing Centre, Hamill trains from 4am to 6am every morning and is back in the centre after school from 4pm to 6pm. Although Lewis says it was hard to watch her daughter in her first fight, she now knows Hamill can hold her own. While Lewis and partner Mat Hamill are

proud of their daughter, who has named herself Skylah ‘Headshot’ Hamill in the competitive realm, it has not been an easy journey for them financially. Lewis says with lack of sponsorship, they juggle multiple jobs to enable Hamill to compete. “Skylah is only young and has so much drive and determination to continue to succeed and she is surrounded by a team that is more like a family with Joe and the club. She trains like one of the adults, so that helps her strength,” she says. “Because she is so young, we have had a very hard time securing any sort of sponsors, so we’d love to get some fight gear sponsors on board, or even someone who can help with gym clothing or runners. It will all help as it can be very costly.”

MAGIC ON THE HORIZON It has been installed at the Colosseum in Rome, the temples of Vietnam and the Grand Theatre of Shanghai and for one night only, the iconic Earth Harp will be at the Kings Beach Amphitheatre. International installation artist, musician and visionary William Close will ignite the Horizon Festival of Arts and Culture on August 25, signalling the start of 10 days of artsfuelled fun on the Sunshine Coast. The Earth Harp will rest on the large stage and 24 harp strings will travel across the length of the amphitheatre, transforming the venue into a colossal musical instrument with performances at 6pm and 8pm. The multi-arts festival will see more than 200 events in visual art, film, literature, performance, street art, comedy, music, theatre and new media brought to life across the region.


The festival is also the forum for the debut of Play in a Day. The workshops for budding writers and performers aged from 13 to 17 are the brainchild of artists Tania Nash and Toni Wills and set the challenge of devising, writing

and performing a 10-minute one-act play that is then performed for friends and family. Nash says it’s a method that pushes young people into their creative space through necessity and a trial conducted earlier this

year yielded some incredible results. “The intensity of the 24 hours is like watching magic happen,” Nash says. “Ideas are flying everywhere at first, but then settling down into a solid work pattern with a real purpose. They know their work goes on show at the end and the competitive edge is a driver. “Working in the industry is both collaborative and competitive, you have to be good to succeed and you have to work together to have a chance at success, so this is what we try and replicate.” The workshops run from 2pm Saturday to 2pm Sunday on August 26 at Alcooringa Youth & Community Centre, Buderim and September 2 at Eumundi School of Arts Hall. Tickets are $110, visit

WORLD TITLE WITHIN REACH FOR JULIAN WILSON Sunshine Coast surfer Julian Wilson had his first win in three years after taking out the World Surf League’s Billabong Pro Tahiti round last week. Now placed fifth, he’s a solid contender for the world title. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.



Julian Wilson after defeating Gabriel Medina in the final of the Billabong Pro in Tahiti on August 13 IMAGE: SAM WALKER

ulian Wilson pulled the comeback of the Billabong Pro tour last week, securing a win in the World Surf League Tahiti round and jumping three places in the world rankings in the process. On a brief visit home to the Sunshine Coast before setting off for California to prepare for the next round of the tour, the Peregian Beach local tells My Weekly Preview he was well and truly “up against the wall” with 10 minutes left of the Tahiti final against world number nine Brazilian Gabriel Medina. With just 10 minutes to go, Wilson was in a combination situation, where he had to pull out two stellar rides to have any hope of snatching the lead from Medina. Far from letting the pressure get to him, the 28-year-old says he simply focused on the ocean. “My focus was very narrow and it was just looking for the right wave to get myself back into the final, not really on anything else,” he says. “I was definitely a little bit frustrated needing those scores, but I knew those types of waves were out there and my opportunities were going to come. I was just focusing on the next wave.” Wilson’s final two rides were the best of his Tahiti campaign, netting scores of 9.23 and 9.73. With just three minutes left on the clock after his second wave, Wilson knew he had what he needed to propel him into first place, with Medina’s score sitting on 17.87. Wilson’s previous triumphs on tour, at Portugal in 2012 and at Hawaii in 2014, also came against Medina. “The final was great, (Medina and I) have had quite a few match-ups in finals now and we seem to bring out the best in each other,” Wilson says. “He really put it to me and I was able to find what I needed to flip the result in the

end, which felt great.” While the final win, his first since he came up against Medina in the Pipe Masters in 2014, left Wilson close to tears on the Teahupo’o podium, he says it didn’t feel like a real celebration until he was able to share the win with friends, family, and wife Ashley on the Coast. The latest victory means Wilson has moved from eighth to fifth on the tour rankings and is very much a contender for the world title. Wilson says being the youngest of three boys in a competitive surfing family developed his drive to push the boundaries in the ocean. “It made me competitive for sure. There’s a seven-year gap between me and my eldest brother, and five years between me and the middle brother and I just always

wanted to be hanging out with their friends and keeping up with them and surfing the waves they surfed,” he says. A regular on the Coolum Beach breaks, Wilson made a name for himself on the professional tour in 2011, where he was named Rookie of the Year. He also became an ambassador for the Breast Cancer Foundation eight years ago in honour of mum Nola’s battle with breast cancer, and every year at the Snapper surfing event, raises money by wearing pink boardies and riding a pink-themed board. This year, Wilson has gone from failing to finish higher than ninth in the first four events of the 11-stop Billabong Pro circuit, before notching a fifth placing at Fiji, a third place at South Africa, and winning the Tahiti leg. “I’ve been having quite a consistent year

without having that excellent result until South Africa and that solidified where I was at and the things that I was doing. Heading over to Tahiti, I was the most confident I had been all year in my preparation and it was nice to go over there and make a lot of really good decisions and get the ultimate goal of winning the event,” he says. “I think just the years of competing and especially being on the world tour have helped me to keep very present and have secured me some pretty special moments so far in my career where things have come to fruition for me,” he says. “This is a great moment in the year to get a big result like this and I’ll keep chasing the guys down that are in front of me. Hopefully at the end of the tour I’ll be in the position I am aiming for. The four guys ahead of me, I’ve been competing with since I was a junior and we’ve spent a lot of time in the water competing against each other. “It’s a pretty exciting time to be at the top of the rankings and battling for a world title now. I was already enjoying myself on tour and now I can’t wait for the rest of the year, with the US, France and Portugal.”

Struggling to concentrate, low energy or feeling anxious? There is more to hormone imbalance then just PMS and menopause. Symptoms of brain fog, poor memory, fatigue, hormone imbalances, infertility either conception or miscarriage, birth defects, hair breaking or falling out, weight issues, fluid retention, depression, anxiety, heart or thyroid disease, insulin resistance, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), lumpy breasts, and more, affect our local community widely. It is necessary for all glands to communicate with each other, for your hormones to be balanced. Iodine deficiency is often overlooked as the cause of sometimes quite complex health risks, and often put down to no cause at all. Being notoriously low in Australian soils, it may be the cause of many more health concerns in men and women.

Celebrities and hair stylists alike love the queen of all hairbrushes, the Mason Pearson. Heidi Klum (pictured) is a fan as it detangles her blonde mane without ripping any hair out. Handmade in England for 100 years, Mason Pearson brushes gently detangle hair, distribute natural oils and make the hair shiny and frizz-free. They come in three bristle types: nylon, boar bristle or a combination of both – the one for you will depend on your hair type. They also last for years. Available from department stores.

The right fit makes all the difference

A spot test is most commonly used to determine levels, however isn’t the most accurate. Testing absorption of iodine rather than what is excreted is better to determine what you may need. Once levels are normalised you’ll feel and function at a much happier, and more productive level in every way. Finding the cause of low iodine is also incredibly important as sometimes it’s not a lack in the diet, but can be attributed to poor absorption, which can come down to any number of other health issues, including gut malabsorption issues, parasite, bacterial infections, stress, food sensitivities, or an underlying disease process causing inflammation. Suffering with any of these symptoms should not be simply accepted as part of life, but should be considered a clue to a health issue you may not know about, so consider investigating even the smallest of issues, it could change the path of your life forever.

Sami Muirhead is delighted to discover women are their most body confident in their sixties but asks, why not when they’re younger?

Leigh Robshaw asks where we draw the line when it comes to kids behaving badly – and their parents behaving even worse – at children’s sporting events.


uess what age we feel most body confident? In our sixties, according to a new survey. Is that not the most fabulous and yet astonishing thing you have read in a while? And yes, I refer to women here. Men seem to have no problem getting around in budgie smugglers even if there is a big round belly hanging over their togs. I wish women were more like men in that way. A fashion company called M&Co did the body image study and asked women to rate themselves in swimwear at different ages. The survey found the average body image score we gave ourselves was just five out of 10. And yet women aged between 65–74 gave themselves the highest score in the survey, with a six out of 10. Perhaps after six decades you just think other things are more important than an unblemished bottom.They are. But a good backside would still be nice. What’s that saying about youth being wasted on the young? I guess you have nothing to prove once you have lived a little. My friend Tamara has a killer body. At university she had no idea that her lanky limbs and huge boobs would render most blokes speechless. We went on a trip to Whistler in Canada to snowboard one holiday and the locals nicknamed her chesty assets ‘Blackcombe’ and ‘Whistler’ after each mountain range ski run in the area. Horribly

sexist, but true. Now Tam is in her forties and yes there are changes after three glorious kids, but I think she looks sexier than ever. “I think the problem is that when you’re looking fabulous you don’t realise it until you see photos from that time long gone and say, ‘hey, I looked great but I remember hating my [insert body parts here] back then. What was my freaking problem?” Tamara says. “It’s hard to embrace mum tum, and sagginess where once lived perkiness. But any day I can drive around without undoing the top button of my jeans, I’m feeling A-OK!

“Women aged between 65–74 gave themselves the highest score ” “When you’re older, you’re probably also wise enough to know that every day in a body that works properly and allows you to do wonderful things is a blessing. At that point, worrying about being ‘perfect’ takes a back seat to making sure you’re healthy.” Tamara and I do not go nightclubbing anymore to test out the power of her weapons of mass destruction. I wonder if they would still be a gateway to free wine. But I am all for ageing disgracefully, so perhaps when we hit our peak body image confidence in our sixties, we will give them a whirl and unleash them.

he phrase ‘every kid gets a medal’ took on new meaning at a local under 11s soccer carnival recently. Picture this. It’s a hot Saturday afternoon and the game has just begun when the referee calls a foul. A young player takes exception to this and begins swearing and hurling verbal abuse at the ref – an adult volunteering his time – followed by taking a few angry swings at him. Yep, actually throwing punches. The ref attempts to usher the boy off the field, gently nudging him on the back when he refuses to leave. Up jumps one of the dads from the boy’s team (not the boy’s father it turns out) and storms onto the pitch, red-faced and riled up, shouting and accusing the ref of ‘child abuse’. The referee calls the game off, leaving two teams of disappointed kids standing on the pitch and about 40 adults stunned into silence. By now, the young boy is crying and the shouty dad has his arms wrapped around him, kissing his head and comforting him. The boy’s granddad then steps in with another dose of abuse for the ref and the boy arcs up again, shouting ‘idiot!’. The boy is not asked to apologise immediately, nor is he led away for a chat. Instead, he is handed his medal and joins the team for a photo, a big smile on his face. It’s just not cricket is it? Or soccer. Or football. Or any sport for that matter. Forget the glory of winning, forget the health benefits of exercise, forget those shiny

medals. None of it matters if we’re not teaching good sportsmanship. But how do children learn the importance of sportsmanship – or indeed how to take responsibility for their actions and manage their emotions – when they have adults setting such a poor example? These two men did such a stellar job of behaving like children, I can hardly blame the kid for his behaviour. Instead of handling the situation with maturity, they escalated it, shamed the ref and encouraged the boy to think of himself as a victim, when he clearly wasn’t. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? And why do parents insist on wrapping their kids in cotton wool, even when they’re out of line? Granted, some kids have issues we may not be aware of, but how does defending this sort of behaviour help? Sunshine Coast Football is investigating the incident at Board level rather than referring it to the disciplinary committee, due to the player’s age. Fair enough. But who deals with the parents? There was a large sign at the entrance to the carnival – initially I found it funny. It said, ‘Please remember: 1. These are kids. 2. This is a game. 3. The coaches are volunteers. 4. The game leaders are human. 5. This is not the World Cup’. I don’t think it’s funny anymore. I think it’s sad and disturbing that adults need to be told how to behave at children’s sporting events.

VOICE OF HISTORY WHEN RADIO RULED THE AIR WAVES For more than two decades, Geoff Malcolm was the voice of the Sunshine Coast, reporting the news and along the way becoming a witness to the region’s history. He shares his memories with Dot Whittington.

The original 4NA building in Currie Street near the Salvation Army Hall; Wimmer’s Cordials were a big part of the local landscape


he Sunshine Coast’s first commercial radio station 4NA went to air at 8am on October 9, 1964, broadcasting from the Nambour Civic Hall. In February 1968, a young announcer who had started his career in Gympie in 1964 before moving to Tamworth, returned to the warmer climate of home. Geoff Malcolm joined the team as breakfast announcer, switching to the news desk from 1985-89. He arrived during the heady days, when radio and a bi-weekly newspaper were the only source of news and broadcast was in the box seat because it was the only instant news. As Geoff says, radio really mattered then. “Radio 4NA came into its own during the floods and power strikes. People would call us to advise what was going on their area and it ended up that we could tell the police, SEQEB and even the RACQ what was going on,” he recalls. “In the end, they were telling people

to listen to us because we knew more than anyone else and were well and truly up to date with everything.” With no daily newspaper or TV station, there was a morning segment for power outage and funeral notices. Many will remember the dirge played after the 7am news before the daily announcement. “I had to check every morning before 7.05am in case (funeral director) Digger Thomas had slipped any notices under the front door at the last minute and he would tell me off if I missed them,” Geoff says. “I remember when Jack Kenny from Wimmer’s Cordials died. I had it all set up to read the announcement then realised the first song after that was going to be Jack in the Box, so there was a last-minute change. You had to be very careful what you played after the funeral notices.” It was a big day for 4NA when its frequency was changed from 1320 (which was also its phone number) to 830. Until

then, the transmitter was at Palmwoods and Buderim blocked the signal to Caloundra. The transmitter was moved to Bli Bli and Caloundra’s access picked up. Although the Coast was still in its infancy, Geoff had more than his fair share of celebrity interviews and scored the only Australian interview with actor Sean Connery when he was holidaying at the Butterfly House in Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba, with his wife Diane Cilento and her family in 1970. “The station manager Pat Maher told me I had no hope getting the interview as Connery had made it clear he wouldn’t be doing any while he was in Australia,” Geoff says. “Jean Hamer told me he was playing golf at Headland Park, so I spoke to Lady Cilento and Diane and locked in a half-hour interview for 10am on New Year’s Day, 1970. Connery was quite hungover as he had had a big New Year’s Eve at the Boolarong the night before. I asked him about his latest movie Shalako, and said he had been compared to

Gary Cooper. ‘How does that make you feel?’ I asked. And he replied, ‘I don’t mind, except that Gary Cooper is dead’.” The late 1960s and early 1970s, was also a time when the Maroochydore Pub ruled for live entertainment and one of the regular guest artists was legendary rocker Johnny O’Keefe who packed the place to the rafters with 1100 people on a Saturday night. “There would be 350 people on a Wednesday, 500 on Thursday, 850 on Friday and by Saturday it would pack out with 1100. “JO’K could get cranky quickly. One night he realised he had forgotten his bowtie and wasn’t happy. I was the MC so I gave him mine. When he returned a year later he brought one back for me,’’ Geoff says. “Another time his car wouldn’t start and I helped him push-start his red Pontiac Firebird down the Mooloolaba Esplanade. He came up and did a half-hour program at the station for me.” John Farnham, Russell Morris and others also played the Maroochydore pub. Geoff was sitting high in a cherry picker to give a blow by blow description of events when Prince Charles and Lady Di visited the Big Pineapple in 1983: “She only had a bit of chicken and lettuce for lunch.” It was a time when local radio gave all the local reports from the stockmarket and fruit and vegetable prices to fishing, boating and surf reports and everyone tuned into the serials, such as Dad and Dave. In 1984, 4NA became 4SS. Geoff left in 1989 but is still going, working for Channel 7.

n exchange-traded fund or ETF is an open-ended investment fund that is listed on a stock exchange. They are one of the fastest growing categories of investment products because they can be traded like a share, offer a low cost alternative to implementing investment strategies, are relatively transparent, and simple to use. ETFs are available for a broad range of assets including equities (Australian and global), fixed income, currency, and commodities. Most ETFs closely track the performance of a given index or asset class and are referred to as passive ETFs. There are also active ETFs that seek to outperform an index, through active management. The growth in ETF offerings remains robust as providers cover more of the

investible universe and address popular investment themes. Globally, assets under management (AUM) in ETF structures have increased to approximately US$4 trillion. Equity ETFs are the most common, representing 80 per cent of global ETF AUM, followed by fixed income ETFs at 17 per cent. ETFGI, an industry data provider, estimates there are now more than 7,000 ETFs managed by 313 providers globally. ETFs were pioneered in North America and the region is the largest ETF market, with approximately 74 per cent of global AUM. The US ETF industry has grown dramatically over the last two decades. The Australian ETF market has also grown rapidly in recent years and there are currently 213 ETF products listed on the ASX, backed by 16 issuers. The Australian ETF market is still relatively small. ETFs offered here are mostly equity ETFs, while fixed income, commodity and currency ETFs account for a relatively smaller share. The average ETF trading volume on the ASX is just 1.5 per cent compared with about 25 per cent in the US.

MAYOR HEADS OVERSEAS The Sunshine Coast will be on show in coming weeks with Mayor Mark Jamieson set to spruik our region overseas. The mayor is travelling to the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Israel as part of an international investment mission to pursue new opportunities to attract smart businesses to the region. The three-week mission supports commitments in the Regional Economic Development Strategy and is part of the council’s plan to encourage investment in the Sunshine Coast’s seven high-value industries. As part of the trip, the mayor will also join the Council of Mayors South East Queensland delegation at the Asia Pacific Cities Summit in Daejeon in South Korea to promote the Sunshine Coast in this key market. “The investment mission is a follow-up visit to the investment missions I undertook in 2015 and 2016, which generated substantial international interest in projects

like the Sunshine Coast Airport when we went to market in June last year to secure a commercial partner,’’ he says. “Similarly, the promotion of the Sunshine Coast to over three million households through South Korea’s leading travel and tourism program and the interest we have secured from the John Holland Group in the Maroochydore City Centre can all be traced back to these previous investment missions. “New investment generates new businesses, which in turn offers more enduring employment opportunities for our residents and helps to deliver new facilities and services to meet the needs of our communities. Jamieson will visit Israel for the first time to find out more about that country’s approach to driving the development of one of the world’s leading technology sectors. “There is much we can learn from Israel for our plans to diversify our Sunshine Coast economy and deliver Australia’s first truly smart city – which can only benefit our current and future generations,” he says. “Per capita, Israel has the largest number of start-up companies in the world, it is ranked number two in the world behind the United States for venture capital funds, has the world’s third highest rate of entrepreneurship and has more NASDAQ listed companies than any other country beside the United States and China.”

s the third Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival gears up to take over the former Horton Park Golf Course, punters are gearing up to embark on a journey like no other. The boutique festival not only boasts headliners in the form of Alison Wonderland, The Presets, and Bernard Fanning, but also art installations, larger-than-life art pieces and a gallery in a shipping container to provide an interactive platform for contemporary visual art. It is a combination festival talent coordinator Zac Abroms says has been at the core of the event. “From the get-go, our philosophy has been that a music festival shouldn’t be isolated to just music, we wanted to bring all aspects of culture to the space to give a full experience,” he says. “This piece of land looks just like a golf course any other day of the year, but we transform it into a wonderland to deliver that escapism into the music festival. You really feel like you are in an exotic place. “We wanted to create an experience that is immersive and changes throughout the course of the day,” he says. “We start with relaxing music from local bands early in the day and people can relax in the lounges, then we add in some hip hop and rock ‘n’ roll in the afternoon for a fun vibe before we have the calm-before-the-storm moment at sunset, which this year will be Bernard Fanning, and once it’s dark, the electronic music comes out and it turns into a dance party.” With an anticipated crowd of 8000, Abroms says ticket sales this year have once again grown. “It has been a nice growth and it has been at a pace that is manageable. There is a lot of space for us to activate, so there is plenty of stuff for everyone to do, and while we are expecting a big crowd, it will never feel

crowded,” he says. Festival organisers have built a reputation for offering a stellar back-of-house experience for their artists, which Abroms says is filtering throughout the music industry and will mean they will continue to attract bigger names into the future. Abroms credits the transformation of Maroochydore and the wider region for paving the way for the unique festival to make an impact on the Coast. “(The region has) been undergoing quite a big development and this has been reflected in all aspects of our culture, with cafes being converted, new restaurants coming to town and turning the Sunshine Coast into a more contemporary, artsy place,” he says. “The festival has been able to help drive that in a sense by providing an example of world-class music and culture and what is happening around us spurs us on as well.” Abroms says it has become easier each year to find local talent to feature in the show as the number of young people staying on the Coast continues to rise. The Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival is on August 26 from 10am to 10.30pm at the Old Horton Park Golf Course in Maroochydore. Tickets are $120 and are available at

he countdown is on to the opening of Estia Health’s new residential and respite aged care home in Twin Waters, as the team prepares to host an open day this Saturday and to welcome its first residents on September 4. Construction of the home, which includes 114 private ensuite rooms, was completed at the end of July and Estia Health CEO and managing director Norah Barlow says she is excited to see it coming to life with the fit-out well underway. “We have been really pleased with the progress of the Twin Waters’ project to date and we are looking forward to opening the doors to what we believe is a beautiful facility,” Barlow says. “Building the structure is the easy part, what we are working towards now is creating an environment in which our residents can thrive and which really feels like home. “We are fortunate that we can draw on the experience we have gained in 68 other homes across Australia and we plan to bring our combined knowledge, experience and innovation to Twin Waters, which is the first of our facilities we have built ourselves.” Barlow says their focus is to encourage residents to retain their individuality and be themselves as that is what most people

fear losing when they move into care. “This is achieved by recruiting a very respectful and engaging team of skilled registered nurses, care staff and support staff backed by Estia’s systems and structure. Initiatives like inviting residents to contribute their recipes for meals on the menu and actively participating in the social calendar of the home enriches the opportunity for residents to be

themselves,” she says. “These may feel like small things but when leaving their own home, these are the things our residents miss, so we do our best to personalise our care and to ensure they retain as much independence as they would like. “We also understand that the decision to move into aged care is not only difficult for a person, it’s also a very challenging time for the loved ones who help guide

Open Day There’s really no need to compromise. At Estia Health we can offer as much (or as little) support as you need to continue living the life you love.

Our wonderful client relations team spend much of their time helping families through the process to make it as easy and stressfree as possible.” The Estia Health Twin Waters offers a private dining room that can be booked by residents to host small, more intimate gatherings with their families. Estia Health client relations manager Jennie Hodge says creating great meeting places is essential to encourage visitors and to offer spaces for the residents to relax. The Driftwood Cafe has been purposebuilt and will be staffed by trained baristas and offer a great cafe menu for not only its residents but it will be open to visitors as well. “Our experience shows that if you create

Whether a resident enjoys a good book, creative arts or frequent trips, our goal is to provide opportunities for our residents to keep living the life that they love.” Residents can participate in a number of lifestyle and exercise activities, join in organised trips to shopping centres and local community events and attend functions at the co-located Living Choice village.

PLENTY OF SHOW, LOTS OF GO The Audi A3 Cabrio is surprisingly powerful with excellent features. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.


hey used to call them hairdressers’ cars. Pretty little convertibles, based on small sedans, that were attractive enough to make a fashion statement but rarely with performance to match the sharp appearance. Plenty of show, not much go, in other words. But the small convertible market has become much more sophisticated in recent years, with some of the world’s biggest and most admired marques diving into this ‘vanity car’ market. Audi is leading the way with cars like this

one – the A3 Cabriolet – that blends Audi’s legendary build quality and sharp driving dynamics in an attractive, affordable package. But the A3 Cabrio is much more than a superficial ‘look at me’ machine. It’s compact and nimble enough to be a joy to drive around town; it’s relatively affordable and frugal enough not to erode too much of your holiday budget; and it’s responsive and focused enough to be a very rewarding drive. It’s in the performance category that this new A3 cabrio really made an impression on us. The two-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder

powerplant of our test machine was remarkably punchy, delivering the kind of performance we’re used to getting from more sport-focused models. Our mid-range model will set you back a still-accessible $55,000 – or for an additional spend of $17,000 you can enjoy the even more powerful and slightly better-equipped S3 Cabrio. Audi claims that as well as performance and efficiency improvements with the new engine, the A3 offers up to $7000 additional value over the previous model. That includes the groundbreaking ‘virtual cockpit’ instrument panel, a wide video screen that replaces conventional dials in a colourful, configurable format that can even project a full-colour navigation map on the panel in front of the driver. It’s an innovation that’s being picked up by other carmakers now – most notably Volvo in its new XC90 and S90 flagship models – but it still seems like a great value-add in a lower-cost model like the A3. The appeal of convertibles often tends to wear off for me after a few days. But not this one. Maybe that’s because as well as its engaging, rewarding dynamics, Audi has eliminated some of the cabrio characteristics that tend to grate. For instance, the A3 impressed us with its quietness, particularly with the cloth roof peeled back. And another typical drop-top

weakness – the loss of structural rigidity when you remove the bracing of a steel roof – has also been well mitigated by the Audi designers. The A3 feels sturdy and beautifully grounded – with accurate, direct steering and excellent balance. So, does this car represent the death of the hairdresser’s car or the reinvention of it? I guess that depends entirely on your perspective – and perhaps your occupation.

AUDI A3 CABRIOLET 2.0 TFSI HOW BIG? Based on the A3 compact sedan and hatch, it loses some of that space to the dynamics of the folding roof and the inconvenience of two doors only. But the rear seat is still useable and two adults plus a couple of kids isn’t beyond the realms. HOW FAST? Even though we tested the mid-range 2-litre, turbocharged model, it impressed with its nippy, responsive performance. So much so that the more expensive, more powerful and all-wheel-drive S3 seems a bit unnecessary. HOW THIRSTY? Recent upgrades to this engine allow it, in combination with the efficient seven-speed auto, to return a frugal thirst of 6L/100km. HOW MUCH? The A3 cabrio can be had for as little as $49,000 plus onroads. Our test machine cost $55,000 plus extras that pushed the price to $63,900, plus onroads. Hardly cheap. Then again, have you seen the price of a haircut lately?

Wish you had more room when family and friends come to stay? Perhaps this New Jersey mansion, modelled after an English castle, will suffice.


hen you think of a traditional mansion, something like Darlington may come to mind. The majestic mansion is located in New Jersey, around 40 kilometres from New York City, and has been called the ‘American Versailles’ by architectural enthusiasts. Boasting a modest 58 rooms, three storeys, a great hall with 30-foot ceilings and one of, if not the only, 1906 Aeolian Player Pipe Organ, and grounds framed by the Ramapo Mountains, you won’t find another property like it. This is probably why you have to enquire with Christies International Real Estate for a price on the property. It is believed the prestige property agency is seeking offers around the US$48 million ($61 million) mark. Darlington is listed with both the National Register of Historic Places and the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and it was built for George Crocker, son of railroad magnate Charles Crocker, who saw the areas of Mahwah as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Darlington was modelled after an English castle and was built in 1907. It was

designed by James Brite who, along with his partner Henry Bacon, also created the original Madison Square Garden, American University in Washington, D.C., and the world-famous Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The mansion has undergone a transformation of sorts in the past seven years, with a complete renovation in which the original precious materials and architectural design have been preserved. All of the mechanical systems and bathrooms were replaced and a new

1100-metres-squared living area was added. No expense was spared on the renovation, which saw the most talented Italian wood carvers and the world’s top designers bring the mansion into the 21st century. The exquisite wood carvings throughout the mansion are bold and unique and the library features a 15-foot ceiling painted by muralist James Wall Finn, whose other works include the Payne Whitney Mansion and the New York Public Library. For the entertainer, there is a wine

cellar and tasting room, cigar room, theatre, billiard room with bar, and poker room. For those who crave a little indulgence, there is a beauty salon, luxury spa with lap pool, steam room, sauna and massage and exercise rooms. No mansion would be complete without a tennis court, fountains, pergolas and gazebos, which are placed around the sprawling grounds. If you are looking for a place fit for royalty, you really can’t go past this.

Idyllically placed amongst the trees, and just moments from the glittering waters of Shelly Beach, words simply cannot describe how truly breathtaking this place is. This magnificent home is on an exceedingly private 976m2 allotment with plenty of space for your boat and car collection. This home was built in the 1940’s, handcrafted from solid concrete and beautiful hardwood timbers. It is lovely and cool in summer and warm in winter, but it you’re feeling a little chilly, it has a charming working fireplace. No matter which way you look, there is always beachfront abound. Take your pick from the family friendly Kings Beach or Shelly beach, go for a surf or perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing. There’s no wonder as to why it’s such a tightly held pocket.

with MWP’s man in the water

So as my friends are either heading to Indo, or already there, I am being tortured by stories and photos. And, my only joy is surfing soft waves with 60 other like minded souls… said no one ever! Man, it has been crowded. How good is the magazine’s front cover this week? Julian’s last five results are as follows – 15th, 9th, 5th, 3rd then 1st. Not bad momentum I would suggest. Although that said, the quality of contenders is off the hook. One mistake could mean the difference – no pressure. This weekend, as it stands, is ho-hum with Sunday looking like the pick of the days with light winds. Maybe a road trip down south might bear more fruit. Anyhow, what ever you do enjoy.

Are you feeling rather restless? Are you sitting around berating the world for not being the way you want it to be? It’s time for rams to ricochet into brand new territory, as Mars and Uranus help you initiate changes in creative and innovative ways.

Expect a domestic matter or a DIY project to go haywire, as Mercury leaves you wondering what is going on. You need to be diplomatic with a recalcitrant relative. And don’t waste time wondering what a loved one is thinking … you’re way off the mark.

Many Geminis are keen to share information and exchange ideas with family, friends and work colleagues. But Mercury is still retrograde (until September 5) so make sure your amusing chatter doesn’t denigrate into gratuitous gossip.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)


Impulse buys today could lead to cash flow problems tomorrow. So avoid making expensive purchases or major money moves this week, as you’re inclined to view your current financial situation through ridiculously distorted glasses.

Mars and Uranus rev up your curiosity and propel you into a new adventure. But you could encounter road blocks along the way, as Mercury stymies your progress. Hasty actions and half-baked plans will only lead to long-term frustrations.

Thank goodness Mercury moves out of your sign on Thursday. But it’s still retrograde until September 5. So take a well-earned break from the madness around you, and escape somewhere quiet where you can relax and rejuvenate.




Avoid being a lone wolf this week. If you nurture close relationships and network with colleagues, then you can combine your talents on a creative joint project. You’ll have to be patient though as you work towards achieving a long-term goal.

You’ll be thrust into the spotlight this week. Venus and Mars give you a confidence boost, so polish up your public persona and put on a good show. Expect some frustration though, when a work colleague or an authority figure antagonises you.

With the planets activating your romance, travel and aspirations zones, it’s time to dream big dreams. They won’t materialise overnight though. You need to be patient and persistent (which are not natural strengths for a Sagittarian).




When it comes to business, financial opportunities or creative inspiration, things are unpredictable. So heed the wise words of birthday great Warren Buffett. “I’ve had periods of my life when I’ve had a bundle of ideas come along, and I’ve had long dry spells.”

Uranus forms a fabulous aspect with Mars. So your bohemian side shines brightly, as you inspire others with your quicksilver mind and avant-garde spirit. You think you know how a loved one is feeling but jumping to conclusions is a recipe for trouble.

Are you bored with the daily grind? Seek out stimulating people this week, as you celebrate your versatility; shake up your routine; and do something different. It’s also a terrific time to express your Good Samaritan side.

TIME TO TRY AN OPPOSITE OCCUPATION? Richard O’Leary toys with the idea of a new career, but it sounds like too much hard work.


ave you ever thought about a sea change or tree change? Or would a 180-degree career change sound more like your

cup of tea? Well, help is at hand. The New York Times ran a great story recently about people who decide to chuck it all in to try something completely different to what they are used to doing in their day jobs. The newspaper also used US Labor Department records to line up the skill sets needed for each occupation to create a cool search engine which allows you to find your opposite job. It suggests lawyers who are sick and tired of court rooms to get outside and grade some roads. For all those overworked graphic designers out there, and I’ve known a few, how about going total-Einstein and becoming a physicist? If you are a historian, put down your

books, and pick up an axe, your countercareer as a lumberjack is just one lopped tree away. Are there any surgeons out there? Well you’ll need to swap your titanium scalpels for Blue Steel as you channel Derek Zoolander to become models. Now, as someone who has Googled their own name (a pretty disappointing outcome may I add, although there is a book called The Collossus of Richard O’Leary – I may have bought it, who’d know?) I couldn’t resist typing in my job (or one of them) – writer. Now before I hit ‘enter’, I weighed up whether or not I was ready to chuck it all in and try something a little different, after all I’ve been doing this writing caper for a while now, maybe it’s time I got my hands dirty and had a crack at a real job. With great anticipation I pressed the button and waited… my opposite job is, wait for it… mobile home installer.

To be honest I didn’t even know that was a job. I guess I knew someone had to put them in place, but it never really crossed my mind before. In that occupation you are practical, add value to people’s lives and don’t overstay your welcome. Now what does that say about writers? Although another life on the greener side of the fence has its temptations, I think I’ll keep at my two-finger typing as it still holds more appeal than two-blackthumbnailed hammering. And finally this week, a quick shout out to everyone who sent in photos of their bookcases and nominated their favourite novels to take on a desert island. Your emails make clear a couple of things; too many bookshelves is never enough and I need to read Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong and Herman Wouk’s The Winds of War.
