though I did notice the lack of aerosol can
control by the overspray on the edges.
It appears that your fingers are too long
to control the can correctly.
I have a nice blunt pair of side cutters
here at work that I can shorten your
fingers with so that you can correctly
control the can.

“This is my first trip through the NT and I’m
totally captivated by the country,” she said.

Domestic violence is an issue both Nova and
Kate are passionate about and Kate is chair-
ing a current Senate inquiry into domestic
violence in Australia.
The inquiry is looking at the prevalence and
impact of domestic violence (DV), especially
how it affects women with disabilities and
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
It will also investigate factors contributing
to present levels of DV, effects of policy
decisions such as housing and legal services,
and how the Federal Government can sup-
port behavioural shifts to eliminate violence
against women and their children.
