There is no reason to be bored in Brisbane. I find there is nothing more fulfilling than helping someone in need.  There are all sorts of community groups – gardening, craft, music, etc. I heard you talking about your granny knitting and crochet recently on Channel 9. There are lots of craft groups around. I belong to one and find great pleasure creating items for Queensland kids in crisis. Wendy M, Runcorn
