Cockroach - Leah Donovan

COCKROACHAn amoral revenge tale for the #MeToo generation

A story of hope, healing and transformation.

“…as you all know there is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself’ Hannah Gadsby

Cockroach was born from a place of anger. As a woman, I’m growing increasingly frustrated and angry at some men in prominent positions who have been getting away with sexual misconduct and abuse.

Unfortunately, the victims are often suffering alone and in silence. After all, a civilised and sophisticated woman should act like a lady (read: hide her shame, pain and suffering and pretend that all is well).

Well, all is not well.

For victims of abuse, life can never be the same again. It will also be more difficult if they take no action and keep doing what’s expected instead of what’s right.

All the time we hear of stories where the woman was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, wearing the wrong clothes. The perpetrator, it seems, had no choice but to teach this ‘unruly person’ a lesson. The blame is always directed at the victim.

Float Here Naked

Floatation Tank Melbourne - Float Here Naked If you’ve never floated, it’s definitely something to add to your bucket list!

Floatation Therapy involves you getting undressed, having a shower and lying in a floatation tank/pod.

If you’re concerned about public nudity – don’t be. You do all of this behind closed doors in your our private spa room!

Nudity is entirely optional, but highly recommended to embellish the sense of freedom and weightlessness you will experience as you float freely and magically as if in space!

This sign is an attention grabber – to get more people aware of a therapeutic service that has many benefits.

Can the experience be sensual, erotic and sexual? The answer is yes. There are many reasons people float and sensuality/eroticism would be one of them.

Floatation is an individual experience, but you can book double floats and do it at the same time with a partner, lover, spouse. Double floats are VERY popular, they just require an advanced booking to line up the time slots!

Whatever your predisposition – floatation therapy is an enjoyable experience you should try at least once!

Social Media is good for something

I have often blogged a contrarian view of social media. Advocating social media is more about identity theft and piracy than social collaboration. I even argue against the business case for small businesses.

A Billion…

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want that politician spending YOUR tax money.


A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective.

A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.

D. A billion days ago no one on the earth walked on two feet.

E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate the US government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain …

Let’s take a look at New Orleans …

It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) was asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans …

Interesting number … What does it mean?

A. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) You would each get $516,528.

B. Or… If you have one of the 188,251 homes, your home would get $1,329,787.

C. Or… If you are a family of four.. Your family would get $2,066,012.

Now, imagine  $700 billion bailing out banks in the US.  That’s enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the US for 11 years!

Kinda puts things into perspective doesn’t it?

What to Consider when Buying your First Motorcycle

What to Consider when Buying your First Motorcycle

Buying First Motorbike

If you have dreams of driving the Great Ocean Road or through the Outback with the wind in your hair, there’s nothing like buying a motorcycle in Australia. Yet for first-timer owners, there are several factors to take into consideration both in terms of safety and value.

You’ll want to pore over motorcycle safety tips and even take a special course before researching the licensing requirements in your state. Reading motorcycle publications and blogs is another good way to learn more about the different types of bikes out there.

Armed with the basics, you’ll be able to then get ready to take the plunge and go shopping! The following tips can help you as you get started.


Think about your Needs as a Rider

There are many different shapes, sizes, and levels of power of today’s top motorcycles. Are you looking for a basic moped to drive for recreational purposes, or are you looking for something with more power to travel long distances? You’ll need to think about what you plan on using your bike for, whether it’s practicing your DIY skills or commuting to and from work in style. Making a list of your needs will help you narrow down the wide array of options out there on the market to find a better fit.

Don’t Get Overambitious

It’s tempting to go with the biggest, coolest, and most powerful motorcycle that fits within your price range. Yet if you’re just getting the feel for a motorcycle, you probably want something that’s a little more practical. It’s a common mistake for new riders to purchase a costly bike with far more power than they would ever need or use. You can purchase a slower bike to get started and build your confidence as a rider before you upgrade to something speedier.

Try on Many Sizes

As motorcycles come in different sizes, you’ll want something that is comfortable to ride. Try on a few different sizes at the dealership to get a feel for what you can control comfortably. Narrow down your search to a few different models and take them for a test drive to see how they feel. A bike that seems like the right size may unexpectedly strain your wrists or cause you to feel off-balance, and you’ll never know until you’re astride it.

Think about New Vs. Used

A used bike can be a great starter vehicle. Used vehicles often offer great value for your money, as they have already depreciated and you will not be as concerned about damaging anything. However, they may not be as reliable as a brand new bike and could cause you to spend more money on maintenance. A brand new Yamaha at sites like will come with a warranty, and you are guaranteed that they will stay in proper working order while you learn the ins and outs of riding.

Look beyond the Sticker Price

As with purchasing any vehicle, there are a number of additional costs to consider and it’s important to look at the long term picture to find something that fits in your budget. This includes insurance rates, which can be quite high for first time motorcycle owners. Be sure to compare rates with several different carriers, looking at how different models can affect premiums. First time buyers will also need to invest in safety gear, including a high quality helmet, jacket, and gloves. Maintenance will also be a cost to consider, particularly if you are buying a used motorcycle. Fuel costs can vary considerably depending on how often you plan to ride your bike.

The Bottom Line

Unlike a practical family or commuting vehicle, motorcycles are usually purchased purely for the fun of ownership. Although you’ll want to keep the logistical issues mentioned above in mind as you compare and contrast your options, don’t forget that you ultimately want a bike that will be fun to own and ride. Listen to your gut and take your time to compare all your options to find the best starter bike.

Company’s Chief Executive or Managing Director. But seriously, whatever’s available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying in the first place – would I?

$150,000 a year plus share options and a Julia Gillard style redundancy package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.

Yes, but they’re better suited to a more intimate environment.

If I had one, would I be here’?

Of what?

I think the more appropriate question here would be “Do you have a car that runs?”
