Take hard work out of Christmas shopping ( admin posted on November 21st, 2018 )

Christmas decorations instakringle

WHETHER it’s a talking moustache keyring, a racing car set, tomato sauce gun or an overnight leopard print bag, Instakringle’s large selection of creative gifts are all under $30.

“The office Kris Kringle tradition is something the majority of us dread and generally forget about until the day of the Christmas party,” Instakringle ambassador Corrine Grant said.

“Whose name will you pull out? What on earth do you get them? What if it’s the boss?

“InstaKringle南京夜网.au is an ingenious solution that will keep both you and your boss on good terms and help Aussies put even less thought into the festive ritual.”

Partnered with eBay, Deals Direct, Unicef, Get Music and many others, this site run by PayPal could be the easiest shopping you do all holidays.

“Quick, secure and convenient, like all PayPal transactions, InstaKringle南京夜网.au selects

gifts based on a series of personality traits

identified by the user,” Ms Grant said.

“The site not only provides a selection of perfectly matched but totally useless presents, but allows users to purchase them online there and then. Plus all gifts are $30 and under.”

Taking the hard work out of shopping for the perfect gift, they’ll even wrap the gift for you and deliver it straight to your Kris Kringle recipient.

And with wrapping paper patterned with the statement, “It’s the lack of thought that counts”, you’re sure to light up the faces of colleagues and friends.

You can even give the gift of giving with charity-based gifts available.

“Quick, secure and convenient — InstaKringle

南京夜网.au is fun. I have wasted a fair bit of time messing around with the gift selector and laughing at the results,” Ms Grant said.

“The other thing I love about the site is that you can buy a gift that will make a real difference.”

Ms Grant said that the most important part of Kris Kringle is putting in as little effort and money as possible.

“Buy something silly but fun — Instakringle

南京夜网.au has a bazillion gifts you can buy in about five minutes — that’s exactly the amount of time you should be spending on the geek from IT that you’ve only spoken to once,” Ms Grant said.

But if you are looking for a present to suit that hard-to-buy-for individual, then Instakringle could be the easiest thing you do this Christmas.

Maffra makes tennis history ( admin posted on November 21st, 2018 )

DESPITE holding top spot on the ladder for the whole of the 10-week home-and-away season, Sale Star Hotel went down to Maffra in a tightly fought Gippsland Premier League tennis grand final.
Nanjing Night Net

It was a similar scoreline as in their round eight encounter, which was also taken by Maffra.

A healthy-sized crowd was at the Sale Tennis Club on Saturday to witness the grand final of the inaugural GPL, which has proven to be a very positive addition to the tennis calendar.

Soon to be departing to take up her USA tennis scholarship, Maffra’s Hailey Shanahan ensured her undefeated singles season remained intact with a strong 6-2 6-1 win over Karen Brown, followed by Jake Weir and Natalie Allman surprising Cohen Schuback and Lexie Joyce 7-5 6-3.

Star’s Abe Schuback and Nick Board played a blinder to defeated Mitch Allman and Jamie Kemp, 9-8, and after Joyce continued her vast improvement to blitz the previously undefeated Natalie Allman 6-1 6-2, the match was square.

Jamie Kemp turned the match in Maffra’s favour with an unexpected win over Board in a tight super tiebreaker after taking the first set 6-2 but losing the second 6-4 and facing a far more experienced opponent in the critical decider.

Cohen Schuback was favoured to add the Star’s match count, and did so 6-3 6-3, but not without a gutsy fight by Jake Weir in a very mature effort by both junior players.

Mitch Allman was a class act, defeated the very solid Abe Schuback 6-1 6-3. These great warriors for their respective clubs had two encounters during the season with nothing much between them although Mitch won both.

Kemp and Shanahan brought home the bacon for Maffra with their 8-4 defeat of Board and Brown, and with the grand final decided, the remaining rubber between Mitch Allman and Shanahan against Abe Schuback and Brown was decided off court during the relaxed post mortem match celebrations and commiserations in the clubhouse.

IN a disappointing twist on the day, for reasons not yet fully assessed, the scheduled third-fourth and fifth-sixth play-offs were not contested.

An investigation is under way into why some players decided among themselves not to show up for the scheduled matches, exposing their clubs to embarrassment. Appropriate action and condition changes will be considered in order to avoid a reoccurrence of this sort of action in seasons to come.

THE new season opens on the first weekend of February with the inaugural Gippsland Grand Prix of Tennis at Traralgon.

The singles cup will be contested from 1pm by GPL players, and also players not committed to traditional pennant fixtures, on Saturday, February 2, while the teams’ cup will be played on Sunday, February 3 between club teams of four males and four females from 9.30am.

One club has already indicated up to four team nominations for this full day teams event which will bring together a number of Gippsland tennis clubs at one location for the first time in years.

Natalie Allman, Maffra.

Cohan Schuback, Sale Star Hotel.

Jamie Kemp, Maffra.

Abe Schuback, Sale Star Hotel.

Nick Board, Sale Star Hotel.

Jake Weir, Maffra.

Save your skin this summer ( admin posted on November 21st, 2018 )

Family with daughter (7-9) and son (11-13) building sandcastles on beachSUMMER is the season when we all tend to spend more time outdoors, which undoubtedly means more time in the sun.
Nanjing Night Net

It also means a greater risk of skin damage occurring, which means a sensible approach to dress should always be adopted when spending time in the open air.

Skin damage can occur after only 12 to 20 minutes’ exposure to sunlight.

Whether you’re just walking to the shops, hanging out the washing or enjoying summertime leisure activities, you must always be mindful of the damage the sun can do to your skin.

To avoid premature ageing of the skin, wrinkles and the possibility of other skin damage, such as cancer, it is essential to wear a sun screen, and keep covered up as much possible, when exposed to the sun.

Cool, long-sleeved cotton shirts or blouses and slacks are a must, and also comfortable to wear in hot weather, and a suitable, wide-brimmed hat will help to protect facial skin.

If you get caught out in the sun and suffer sunburn, it is important to drink plenty of fluids and herbal teas, such as rosemary and lemon grass, to reduce the possibility of dehydration. The stinging, soreness and pain can be eased from the affected area with any of the following first aid measures.

– Apply aloe vera leaf juice straight from the plant to soothe and ease sunburn. Waterlily leaves and stems will also give relief.

– If nothing else is handy you can dab milk on to affected area. Yoghurt is also effective.

– Thin slices of cucumber laid on the skin and held in place with a loose bandage will also ease stinging and give relief to painful areas.

– You can cover the burned area with a paste made from bicarbonate of soda and water.

Severe cases of sunburn should always be referred to your health practitioner or local medical centre.

If you are only suffering a mild sunburn, you can ease the stinging and prevent further moisture loss from the skin by applying the following natural lotion.

Mix together 50ml of glycerine, 40ml of aloe vera juice and 10ml each of wheat germ oil and jojoba oil. Store the lotion in a tightly sealed bottle, shake vigorously before use, and apply generously to the affected areas of the skin.

Australians in Fiji bunker down for cyclone ( admin posted on November 21st, 2018 )

Thousands of Australians are among those bracing for the onslaught of tropical cyclone Evan, which is bearing down on Fiji after cutting a swath through Samoa last week.
Nanjing Night Net

The category four storm is expected to pack wind gusts of up to 270km/h and is forecast to pass just north of Vanua Levu Island on Monday and reach the tourist centre of Nadi late on Tuesday, according to the Fiji Meteorological Service.

All domestic and international flights to the Pacific Island nation have been grounded and thousands of people are bunkering down in evacuation centres.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on Sunday night said there were 2100 Australians registered as being in Fiji, although the actual numbers of Australians there was expected to be higher.

More than 180 registered schoolies who travelled to Fiji’s popular Mana Island and Plantation resorts are believed to be among those Australians stranded in Fiji. However, the largest provider of schoolies celebrations in Fiji, Unleashed Travel, said it had evacuated all of its 500 customers from the country yesterday.

Managing director Jot Lynas said the final 10 of Unleashed Travel’s schoolies and 10 staff left Fiji on Sunday and spent the night in Auckland. They were expected to arrive in Australia early on Monday.

“There are 2000 people [Australians] still there in Fiji, but we managed to get all of our kids out and home,” he said, adding that it was the first time his company had had to organise an evacuation of this magnitude.

“It wasn’t easy but we were really happy with the fact that we could get everybody out and home.”

At 6.30am on Monday [AEDT], tropical cyclone Evan was 170 kilometres north-north-east of Nadi.

According to Fiji Live, 2534 people were bunkered down in 31 evacuation centres overnight, and power was out in parts of Labasa, in the northern part of the island of Vanua Levu.

Among the buildings without power were the Labasa Corrections Facility and the local barracks.

Robbie Gillespie, the programs director for Save the Children in Fiji, said he had spoken to his staff in Labasa, who reported very strong winds and rain since about 10pm on Sunday.

“The storm is relatively slow moving so this should persist for most of today,” Mr Gillespie said from his base in Suva.

“We haven’t got any damage reports as yet, flooding will be an issue for low laying areas when the high tide comes later today.

“A number of evacuation centres have been activated.”

Four people died and eight fishermen from three boats are still missing after the cyclone ripped through Samoa last week.

The New Zealand Air Force and the French Navy are searching for the fishermen. The 30-year-old skipper of one of the boats managed to get ashore after his boat capsized but authorities are yet to interview him.
