A fascinating read about the world of blood. A rather unusual subject about something we tend to take for granted.
The End of An Australian Dream
by Kurmelovs, Royce. And the end of many employee’s livelihoods.
A critical look at the rise and fall of the iconic Concorde supersonic passenger jet.
This book interested me as the global warming and renewable energy generation debate has gotten more heated recently and I wanted some facts.
I remember Jelena’s father, Damir Dokic, when he was on Bourke’s Backyard, and he looked ready to explode at any moment. I’ve never seen Don Burke be so careful with a guest. This was a small sample of what Jelena’s father was like.
