Taylers mum returns

Tayler and Patrick

As Grace, Tayler and Dan mark out a field for the next day’s charity soccer match, Stevie drives up and announces the government’s plans to dam the Ramsay River. It will rob Drovers of most of its water supply. Grace heads into the study to ring affected landholders and almost walks in on a desperate phone call Jaz is having with a friend in Italy, talking about a court hearing affecting her showjumping career. Jaz goes with Grace to Selkirk’s to arrange a meeting and there she meets Frank, whose opinion about the dam is shot down by Jim. Farmers from East Nanjemup (who have the most to gain from the dam), including big-wig Terri Barker, attend the meeting, where the charity soccer match is turned into a protest rally. But Terri reckons the dam’s good for the east. She takes some convincing to see how bad it will be for the rest of the district. Softening, she and the others consider attending the protest match. Grace volunteers Olympic-hopeful Jaz to be the face of the anti-dam campaign. Jaz tries to get out of it, but is forced into a corner. Terri later questions Jaz as to why she’s not training in Europe, and Jaz covers — her horse is injured. But the next day, Terri visits Jaz and tries to blackmail her into supporting the dam and making Drover’s accept the government’s compensation — she’s made some inquiries and knows about a scandal rocking Jaz’s career.
Tayler’s and Patrick’s happy domesticity is disrupted when Tayler’s mother, Jane, returns. Jane wants to set the record straight with her daughter, but Tayler is wary, owing to Jane’s previous appearance around her 18th birthday. Now, Jane wants to be up front with Tayler, to explain why she left, and why she stayed away for 16 years without so much as a word. Frank’s daughter, Lily, is distressed by the constant upheavals in her life. She wants a settled home, but she’s pretty sure she can only get this by leaving her beloved father to live with her mother. She turns to Tayler for help, but Tayler, too blinded by the anger she feels towards her own mother, advises Lily to forget it. Better one parent who truly loves you, than to go chasing after the one who abandoned you. Meanwhile, Xander has not smiled yet, and it’s worrying Stevie immensely. When Xander does smile, first, for Moira, and then for everyone in the house except Stevie, the Drovers women decide to keep it a secret. Grace, Jaz, Marcus and Frank head off to the city to confront the Minister responsible for a dam proposal that will take away their ground water. Marcus manages to get in to see Ayres and arranges a meeting for later that day. But instead of the face to face they’d imagined, Ayres leads them directly into a press conference. Meanwhile, Phil gives Moira a gift, the script of his musical — “The Girl from Gungellan”. Moira reads it and is impressed. But when Phil tells her the main character is based on her, she is overwhelmed. It’s Stevie and Alex’s first wedding anniversary but Stevie wants to forget about it. Moira dresses Xander in pink to help Stevie with her grieving. Stevie leads the others in a toast to Alex. Jaz is taken aback when Lily reveals her dad Frank is talking about proposing to her. Jaz thought she’d put the kiss with Frank to bed — it happened in the heat of the moment, but now knows she was wrong. Meanwhile, Frank’s hopes for a stable family life take a pounding when he learns that his ex-wife has a new job in Queensland and intends to take Lily with her.

Paul Rodgers leaves Queen


Paul Rodgers has left Queen after five years in the band. The singer joined original members Brian May and Roger Taylor in 2004 to form the reunited version of the group. Rodgers has no animosity towards May and Taylor and he said  that this arrangement as Queen’s frontman was never meant to be permanent one. The musician also said he would be open to work with them again. Its like an open book, if they approach me for charity, for instance, or something like that…. he would be very much into doing that. With Rodgers as a member, Queen embarked on two full-lenght tours and recorded two live DVDs. The band also released their first album since 1995 with 2008’s the Cosmos Rocks. The cosmos rocks was very historical for Brain May and Roger Taylor because they hadn’t gone into the studio with anybody and recorded something like that for a very long time. So it was quite an achivement.

Dogs in the House


We have besides Lady two more puppies, Noelle she is a mix Shihitzu x Sharpei, and Kira a German Sheppard mix. Noelle is now 6 months and we got her from a Dog kennel in Roermond, named the Kingsmill. She was so skinnie that we could not say no to her. We tought if we left her there, she would not survive. We took her to the vet the next day we got her, and the vet was shocked. Way to skinny and full off parasites. It took us at least 2 months to get the parasites out off her. She is a very happy chappi, she is so greatfull, like she nows, we saved her life. Now she is almost 6 months and she has a skin disease, she got from her mother during birth. Its something the mother has too. She needs a chemical bath, every 6 days, for a month, it reallie stinks and it makes her feel sick, we are glad that the others dogs cannot get it. I am sorry i just dont now the english name for it. I just want to say how is it possible for a Doggie kennel sell sick dogs ?? Well than there is Kira, we bought her in Sittard from a normal family and she is a little raskel. But o so sweet. Lady left the house with my oldest daughter she moved out because she got an apartement for herself. Thats what kids do when they grow up. Lady spents daytime with us when my daughter is working. So Noelle and Kira are good friends, but the always love it when Lady comes home. Lady is their role model. We are all so very happy to have dogs in the house again, It tells us how much we missed Beau and Gina, that will never stop i quess, but the pain off their loss heals now.


Are they not the cutest puppies you have ever seen. Kira cries when i get home from work and she cries when i leave in the morning. Its so funnie to have 3 pups running arround you to say hello to you when you come home.  I always want to have dogs in my life, yes its hard when they die and you have to say goodbey, but they give you so much love for the time you have them,  i never want to miss that again.
