Thursday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Mini-Breaks: Australians are taking overnight mini-breaks and sticking close to home, reports News.com.au. Budget restrictions and other commitments are seeing more than two-thirds of travellers remaining in their own state when they take a well-earned break.

Kerri-Anne: Ah. Gosh. There’s a new thing to critique people on now. How they manage their own personal medical treatment. Not content with taking stabs at KAK’s appearance, work, age etc, she’s now being stung for finishing Dancing With The Stars before she launches into (no doubt) gruelling treatment for her recently diagnosed breast cancer.
