  1. Maev....Sydney

    Watched The Bachelorette…TV was still on when that movie came on…what was that?
    I watched Home Delivery this afternoon on iview….Di Smith/back up singer…wonder who the other lady was…and the band…do they do regular gigs?

  2. Watched the first episode of The Bachelorette and I could feel the intelligence drain out of me. If the guys are a section of Australia’s maledom we are doomed.
