It’s Movember and time to focus on men’s health. To show our commitment, Rob is donating his face to the cause by growing a moustache for the entire month of November, and need your support. Rob’s Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male mental health.
I’m asking you to support my Movember efforts by making a donation by either:
- Donating online at: http://mobro.co/RobMader
- Writing a cheque payable to ‘Movember’, referencing my Registration ID: 5230753 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 60, East Melbourne, VIC, 8002
If you’d like to find out more about the type of work you’d be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website: http://au.movember.com/about/funding-overview/
Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health.
Parkinson’s SA Inc (PSA), a not for profit organisation, is dedicated to supporting people living with Parkinson’s disease and their carers.
‘The Unity Walk for Parkinson’s in the Mid North’ is to be held next Sunday, 28th October, on the Clare Oval commencing at 11:00am, with registration and warm up sessions from 9:30am onwards.
This event will be the first time a Unity Walk for Parkinson’s has been held outside a capital city in Australia so PSA is very keen for it to be a huge success. There are approximately 6500 Parkinson’s disease sufferers in South Australia and a disproportionate number of these live in rural areas. This is believed to be a result of the farming community’s exposure to pesticides and weedicides which are known to be a factor in the cause of Parkinson’s.
More information on PSA is available at: www.parkinsonssa.wordpress.com

It’s Anti-Poverty Week this week and NAR Design’s Country Business Mums group has decided to ’Make a Brighter Christmas for Locals’ by donating gifts and non-perishable food items to people in need in our community with the help of local charity organisations.
Making a Brighter Christmas is open to all members of the community and we encourage as many people as possible to participate so please download the flyer to forward onto your contacts.
Ideas for gifts include:
- Non-perishable food e.g. a packet of flour (a small thing but very useful)
- Soap, shampoo or other hygiene items
- A gift for a 12-16 year old boy or girl as they struggle to get enough of those
The build was for both performance and aesthetics – it needed to look good and perform well so the use of the giant BitFenix Shinobi XL case with side window was chosen. This case has two 230mm fans, one in the front and one in the top as well as a 120mm fan in the back, however the choice of the Corsair H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler meant that one of the 230mm fans would be removed.
Choosing the “K” model Intel i5 processor that is unlocked for overclocking allows plenty of room for tweaking and combining this with liquid cooling provides the best opportunity for stable performance.
After discussions around GTX670 model graphics cards the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 was chosen due to its clean lines.

A Bit about Country Business Mums:
Being a mum in business has a lot of unique challenges whether you own your own business, have a partnership, a hobby business at home or you’re the woman behind your husband’s success.
Country Business Mums provide a fantastic opportunity to meet other mums in business, share stories and experiences, get advice, promote your business and build a support network.
