Recently, my wife Tanya and I were invited to a friends 70th Birthday party. Politics were left at the door, as labor and liberals sat on the same tables and celebrated a friends birthday. From the Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Political commentator Laurie Oakes to Bob Carr and Alan Joyce. Indeed a very interesting bunch of people, who define Australia's politics today.
RETIRED CIRCUS LIONS MOVE INTO THEIR NEW RESORT SYLE HOME
Last year, three lions, Kovu, Masie and Kiara were retired from Lennon Bros circus, after 15 years as performing members of the travelling family.
The Lennon family and Zambi Wildlife Retreat signed an agreement late last year to give the three majestic creatures a ‘forever home’ at the retreat. The circus family made a significant financial contribution towards the construction costs of a new enclosure and the Zambi team went to work.
And so, at the end of last year, the lions performed in front of an audience for the last time and exited the ring through their long wire tunnel to hit the road to Zambi. Now, 10 months later, after living in a temporary enclosure and watching the construction take place, the lion trio again, walked the long wire tunnel, but for the last time.
