Tell us what you think about the articles Weekend magazine runs
A FEW stories and columns from the Weekend magazine have caused a stir among readers.
Weekend wants your feedback. To have your say, find our stories in the lifestyle section of our website and leave your comments, or email week[email protected]regionalmedia.com.au.
I refer to your editorial on Saturday August 12 in which you state, quite sarcastically, that most don’t want a plebiscite.
Are you really that biased? The coalition was elected at the last Federal Election. Their platform included a plebiscite on gay marriage.
Surely even someone who votes Labor, as you obviously do, will acknowledge that the majority, that is most, do want it.
That’s why the Coalition, led by Malcolm Turnbull, was voted to lead our country.
Last week we bought the Saturday Chronicle for the first time. I read the weekend section from cover to cover and enjoyed so many of the articles. I particularly enjoyed Pollie Tickled and Mind You, the recipes and the story about things that go bump in the night.
This week’s story on the Queensland romance writers was interesting.
Now I can continue to look forward to Saturday morning when I sit in the sun on my front veranda with a cup of coffee and read the Weekend section of the paper.
Welsh instinct for paranormal
It is said that the Welsh have an uncanny instinct when it comes to the paranormal. My husband was Welsh and he certainly had it. Before our marriage he moved into a 300-year-old house in Hereford, in the UK.
He told me that one evening he saw a lady dressed in a long brown silky dress and her hair in ringlets walk through the living room. I would not have believed this but when he told his associate, who was also Welsh and owned the practice, he said, “You’ve seen her too, have you?”
Later, in Australia, I was singing a solo at a local church. Afterwards a lady said that somebody was singing with me. On reaching home I told this story to my husband who said, “Was she standing to the right and slightly in front of you?” to which I replied, “How should I know, can you see her?”
He answered in the affirmative and said she was wearing a cloche hat. I went looking for my parents’ wedding photograph. I showed my husband the photograph and he said that she was the lady he saw.
