MILLION DOLLARS spent on Statue in Perth Instead of our Homeless or Sick People

This is what greeted us as we stepped off the train in Perth on a recent visit to our city in Forrest Place. I was astounded when I saw where the City of Perth is spending hard earned dollars.  I could not believe they could waste this amount of money on a monstrosity like this.

As we stood there flabbergasted, a person walked up to us and said can you believe that that cost us a Million dollars?   We could not believe that our powers to be could use Western Australia's money in such a way.

Don't get me wrong; I have nothing against modern art, but at1 million dollars, surely during these hard economic times the money could have been spent on a much better project.

Money would be spent better on: helping the hundreds of homeless people and creating jobs than a masterpiece that looks like part of the human anatomy.

Lose Weight walking on the Beach and Collect Shells to make Gifts

Mixture of different Seashells

We all need to spend time walking on the beach while on holidays. Not only is it a rewarding experience we can lose weight  as we collect shells and use them to make beautiful gifts for Christmas or Birthdays.

You can find shells on all beaches; although some will have cowrie shells or cone shells where another beach may only have small little cockle shells.  Others may have conche shells or if you are really lucky you may even find bigger shells.

The best time to find good shells if after a big blow or a storm. Then you need to get down to the beach early before everyone else does so you get the pick of the crop.  You may even find a paper nautilus, these are very fragile almost as the title suggests like paper.
