The shed, which opened in April, is not your typical Men’s Shed — there is the usual workshop element, but it also houses a pool room, computers, art easels and a small library.Scott Slade from Fathers of Autistic Children Together (FACT) was a driving force behind the project.He has a 15-year-old son with autism and said the shed allowed him to seek the support of others.”It allowed fathers to talk about their shared experiences,” he said.”It can be tough on the family, and my wife was more in tune with my son and the challenges he faced and it can be really hard. (ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe)
“It can also lead to frustration and there are a large number of families that experience breakdowns or separation due to having children that are on the spectrum.”Breaking down barriers for the blokesMr Slade said being able to have a meeting place for the FACT group helped break down barriers among the “blokes”.

“It’s a wonderful way for us to support these men, and through talking with the men I’ve been able to connect with my adult son more now too,” he said.”I love coming here and the diversity of men here is great as we have men from all over the world and different professions.”You learn so much from other people and I’m a firm believer that you’re never too old to keep learning.”The South Brisbane Men’s Shed FACT group has meetings each Friday evening at 141 Merton Road, Woolloongabba.

The shed houses a small library and bright artwork for the members. For more information visit the South Brisbane Men’s Shed website. Tucked away on Brisbane’s southside, a group of small sheds is giving men with children on the autism spectrum a place to meet, socialise and support each other.South Brisbane Men’s Shed is the first in Australia to have a special interest group for dads, brothers, uncles and grandfathers of children with autism.In partnership with the Department of Education and Training Autism Hub, the shed allows men to get together once a week to gain information, but also to relax around people experiencing similar circumstances at home.

“We talk to each other and offer ways that could work for one father from another father and it gives a better understanding for the child’s and partner’s requirements,” he said.Together with the Men’s Shed members, the group does a variety of activities including ukulele lessons, open mic nights and celebrations around the State of Origin.”It’s exciting to come in on Friday night and catch up with the dads and it gives us a chance to socialise together,” Mr Slade said.He said the feedback, the support from the local community and the success of the shed was a concept he wanted to take further.”We want to take this concept and replicate it across Queensland and across the country,” Mr Slade said.

Australian doctors put smile on face of Cambodian farmer after facial surgery

Cambodian man "born again" after Australian surgeons remove huge growth from his jaw. (ABC News) By South-East Asia correspondent Liam Cochrane

Eng Kheng at his home in Kampong Cham province, four months after his facial surgery. He is in charge of maxillofacial, plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery at Preah Ket Mealea Hospital. (ABC News: Liam Cochrane)
There is some scarring and he has to wear dentures, but his jawline is normal and he can smile. “It’s good, it [has] a chargeable battery and you put the bit in and then you can drill to the bone, make a hole and fit the screw and we can fix the patient,” he said with a smile, obviously having shocked foreigners with this story before. Which is a polite way of saying there would probably be no blood stock and the patient would die. ‘I felt like I’d been born again’In late February, Mr Eng flew to Adelaide for his surgery. “In Australia they cared for me so well,” Mr Eng said. “I want to thank the doctors,” he said, with a smile those doctors made possible. His trip was made possible by the fundraising of Walk on Water, pro bono care from Ashford Hospital and the local Cambodian community. Since 2012, Cambodian’s International University has run a masters degree in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Cambodia’s few specialised surgeons are desperately understaffed. (ABC News: Liam Cochrane)
But cases like Mr Kheng’s are too much for Cambodia’s health system. “They took me to the beach, to the mountains and the shops.” Acclimatized to Cambodia’s intense tropical heat, Mr Eng wore a thick jacket, scarf and beanie to hospital, even though it was late summer. “I wonder about that, hopefully my face is more handsome than before,” Mr Eng said.Doctors regroup after 1970s slaughterAfter his consultation, Mr Eng went to visit his brother in the next room, recovering after having a similar but smaller growth removed in the Phnom Penh hospital. “During the surgery he might encounter massive blood loss and unfortunately, currently blood transfusions in the Cambodian surgical world are unpredictable,” Dr Cheng said. These days, the little hardware store drill has been retired, superseded by modern, donated equipment. “I don’t want to change much, just keep farming sugar cane and vegetables,” he said. Photo:

Eng Kheng says he was able to eat prior to his surgery, but it was often messy. “Someone said that if I got married, he’d give me $3,000 [for the wedding] but I didn’t take the offer,” he said. Photo:

In a waiting room crowded with relatively minor deformities like cleft palates and webbed fingers, Eng Kheng stood out.His cheeks bulged as if he was trying to swallow a large pink grapefruit, with sections pushing through his lips.”He basically has a benign bone growth of his facial jaw bone, the condition is called fibrous dysplasia,” said Andrew Cheng, a surgeon visiting from Adelaide.”It’s certainly one of the most severe cases I’ve seen,” said Dr Cheng, back in February.The huge growth was not cancerous or painful.WARNING: This story contains graphic images.Mr Eng said he managed to eat, although it could be a messy process. The difference to his face is extraordinary. “The operation was painless, I just fell asleep [and] dreamed I was in a big plane,” he said. The new experiences in Australia and the warm welcome he received put him in a philosophical mood before the operation. “I was offered meals all day — breakfast, lunch and dinner, even coffee. (ABC News: Liam Cochrane)
Dr Nous shows off a small cordless drill that he bought in the post-Khmer Rouge days from Phnom Penh’s Russian Market to use in the operating theatre. His main emotion for now is gratitude, for the lucky discovery by the visiting health worker, and the generous fundraisers and Cambodian diaspora, but especially for the surgeons. Its five students are taught in modules by visiting surgeons, mostly from Australia, Japan and the United States, who cram as much knowledge as they can into one- or two-week courses. “It’s healed thousands of patients,” Dr Nous said. The medical ranks are still recovering from the madness of the Khmer Rouge years.Between 1975 and 1979, the ultra-Maoists tried to turn the country into a peasant utopia by sending urbanites to the rice fields and killing everyone with an education, including doctors. (ABC News: Liam Cochrane)
Fibrous dysplasia is a rare condition, but not in Eng Kheng’s family — his brother has it and so does his father.The farmer had pretty much accepted his uncomfortable deformity, until a health worker came to his village to check people’s eyesight and made a referral to the capital, Phnom Penh.The facilities at Preah Ket Mealea Hospital would be considered basic by Australian standards — a crude wheelbarrow by the lift acts as patient transport — but it was the biggest hospital Mr Eng had ever been inside.Dr Cheng showed him the surgery plan on an iPad, Mr Eng looked bewildered by the high-tech image of his face, with the tissue destined for removal coloured green.He hoped that the doctors could “heal” him, but had little idea how his face might look after the surgery. I felt like I’d been born again.”Reason to smileMr Eng is now back in his village in Kampong Cham province. “I thought, ‘If I die, I die’, but then I woke up and I was still alive,” he said.”When I woke up and saw my face it looked beautiful.

Beach Boys – Wouldn’t It Be Nice Lyrics

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But let’s talk about it…
Wouldn’t it be nice? Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray… it might
come true
Baby, then there wouldn’t be a single thing we couldn’t
do…
We could be married and then we’d be happy,
Wouldn’t it be nice? Then we wouldn’t have to wait so long
And wouldn’t it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong
You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through
The happy times together we’ve been spending
I wish that every kiss was never ending…
Wouldn’t it be nice? BEACH BOYSWouldn’t It Be Nice Lyrics
Brian Wilson & Tony Asher (Irving Music)
Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older?

Alabama – I’m In A Hurry Lyrics

ALABAMAI’m In A Hurry Lyrics
Chorus:
I’m in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun
All I really got to do is live and die
But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why
Don’t know why
I have to drive so fast
My car has nothing to prove
It’s not new, but it’ll do to 60 in 5.2
chorus
Can’t be late
That leaves me plenty of time
Shakin’ hands with the clock
I can’t stop, I’m on a roll and ready to rock
chorus
I hear a voice
It says I’m runnin’ behind
I better pick up my pace
It’s a race and there ain’t no room
For someone in second place
break

England Dan & John Ford Coley – What’s Forever For Lyrics

ENGLAND DAN & JOHN FORD COLEYWhat’s Forever For Lyrics
I’ve been looking at people
And how they change with the times
And lately all I’ve been seeing are people
Throwing love away and losing their minds
Or maybe it’s me that’s gone crazy
‘Cause I can’t understand why
All these lovers keep hurting each other
When good love is so hard to come by
So what’s the glory in living
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for
I’ve been listening to people
And they say love is the key
And it’s not my way to let them lead me astray
It’s only that I want to believe
So what’s the glory in living
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for
But I see love-hungry people
Trying their best to survive
While in their hands is a dying romance
And they’re not even trying to keep it alive
So what’s the glory in living
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for

Vektor – Cosmic Cortex Lyrics

VEKTORCosmic Cortex Lyrics
Immersed in a colossal squall
The endless storm grows and evolves
With purpose to accelerate
The progression of the human race
Your mind enters a dimension of thought
Wisping forms flow through it
Just like a moon pulling the tide
The blackened ebb of Zeitgeist
It takes control of all your senses
Tightening its hold, it breaks your defenses
Cosmic Cortex
Bursting with gamma rays
Cosmic Cortex
You’re pulsing through its veins
Cosmic Cortex
Will melt your brain
It takes its fears and makes them your own
And you become its drone
You’re trapped between two hemispheres
Enveloped by the years
The brain cannot truly create
Only build upon its existing slate
So we expand our totality
A cranial, mass singularity
Taking control of all communications
Watch the Cortex grow
It’s a mental infestation
Cosmic Cortex
Bursting with gamma rays
Cosmic Cortex
You’re pulsing through its veins
Cosmic Cortex
Will melt your brain
Feel, Sense, Share
Breathe the looming atmosphere of
Hate, Doubt, Fear
Between the two hemispheres of
Self and Mass, Torn
To create within the same pulsing brain
That will claim to protect: The Cosmic Cortex
All that has passed
All thoughts amassed
Speed through the curve
Too far too fast
To resist is to be destroyed
Terror rises from the East
A neural web flowing like tidal debris
Versed, coerced, immersed
The Master Mind that shapes and turns this earth
The cosmic brain appears
As a celestial sphere
Grey matter that collects
Consciousness
The cosmic brain inscribes
Tidal minds
Grey matter that collects
And then infects
No one defies
The ever-growing mind
All thought exhumed in
The all-consuming Cosmic Cortex
Collect, infect

Morbid Death – Depressed Mind Lyrics

I feel hate, I feel depressed
pushing into the deepest agony
I feel hate inside me MORBID DEATHDepressed Mind Lyrics
Always the doors in your mind
imaginary forms of life
showing the holy one
twisted versions of reality
Confused – I know that I am
disappointed with the man! confused – I know that I am
disappointed with the man! Will they put a mask?

Fallen In Love Lyrics – Alice Cooper

Get up! I was a tall cool cat and I was on my own
Calling girlie after girl on my telephone
Then she stopped me in my tracks with those coal black eyes
She put me on my back, I was paralyzed
My baby’s love is hard, my baby’s love is tough
If I were anybody else I’d o’ had enough
Cause she treats me like a dawg, not a cute little pup
But I’ve fallen in love and I can’t get up! I’ve fallen in love
I was a billion dollar baby in a diamond dress
Now I’m a dirty desperado and a steaming mess
She drive me nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof
She’s like a dirty cup of poison that I can’t refuse
My baby’s love is hard, my baby’s love is rough
If I were anybody else I’d o’ had enough
[?]
Cause I’ve fallen in love and I can’t get up! I’ve fallen in love
And I can’t get up!

Hallelujah Lyrics – Bamboo

Anong balita sa radyo at TV? Ganoon pa rin, kumakapa sa dilim
Minsa’y naisip ko na umalis nalang dito
Kalimutan ang lahat, lumipad, lumayo, oh
Bato bato sa langit, tamaan huwag magalit
Alam naman natin kung sino ang tuso
Sa bawat sumpang umiiyak, singil ko ay piso
Sa bawat lumuluhang dukha, alay ko’y dugo
May kasama ka kapatid, kaibigan
Hangga’t ako’y humihinga
May pag-asa pa
Hoh-oh-woh-oh
Hallelu, hallelujah
Sinong sawa, sinong galit
Sumigaw ngayong gabi
Hallelu, hallelujah
Hale-yeah-yeah-eh-eh
Blinded by the light
I could barely see the faces in front of me
You asking me how do we begin
Well for starters from within
I’m ashamed of what I’ve become in the mirror
The face of my one true enemy
Hallelujah, it’s a new day
Let’s take control
If I have to take this message door-to-door
See myself in every soul
With permission
I’ll make this my personal mission
Save me from the fire, from the fire
Save me from the fire
Ngayong gabi
Ako ang sundalo mo
Habang ika’y tulog
Ako’y gising nakabantay sa iyo
Kasi mahal kita, tingnan mo
Pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo lamang

Kung Sabagay Lyrics – Sarah Geronimo

Nagsimula nang mamasdan ang iyong mukha
Naramdaman ang pag-ibig at pagsinta
Habang tumatagal
Lalong minamahal
Ngunit ngayon tadhana man ay nag-iba
Yaring pag-ikot ng mundo’y tumigil na
Akala’y mag-paalam
Di ko sadyang lumisan
Kung sabagay may karamay ka
Sa’yong paglalakbay
Kung sabagay may umaga pang
Sa’yo’y naghihintay
Di kailanman nawalay
At hawak ko ang iyong kamay
Maging hanggang sa kabilang buhay
Kagaya nang isang bituing kumikinang
Na sa dilim liwanag ay magigisnan
Laging gumagabay
Hanggang sa mahimlay
Kung sabagay may karamay ka
Sa’yong paglalakbay
Kung sabagay may umaga pang
Sa’yo’y naghihintay
Di kailanman nawalay
At hawak ko ang iyong kamay
Maging hanggang sa kabilang buhay
Kung sabagay may karamay ka
Sa’yong paglalakbay
Kung sabagay may umaga pang
Sa’yo’y naghihintay
Di kailanman nawalay
At hawak ko ang iyong kamay
Maging hanggang sa kabilang buhay

Bizzy Bone – Muddy Waters Lyrics

I guess we’ll never know; that’s just the way it goes
Havin high school dreams of turnin pro
Catch an injury and now the scouts ain’t ’round no mo’
Studyin to be a doctor but get pregnant in school
You decided to keep yo’ child, now you must provide the food
At the tender age of 50, reachin your golden years
These are the muddy waters, that I can see and I hear
Bizzy cared for ya, but baby I can only stare
These are the muddy waters, that I can see and I hear
[Chorus – 3X w/ minor variations + ad libs]
[Outro: Bizzy]
This for my momma, this for my children
This for my sister, and Eazy-E
‘Pac, Biggie, Big Pun, Aaliyah, Left-Eye
Capo rest in peace nigga BIZZY BONEMuddy Waters Lyrics
[Intro: Bizzy]
Ha ha ha ha, they say start it all over again
Whatever you goin through it’s somebody goin through somethin worse
Let’s do this
[Chorus: Bizzy Bone]
And that’s life in the city kid
Everybody ain’t gon’ make it out the hood (out the hood)
You wanna flow like Bizzy did
Just keep the faith, and it’s all to the good
[Bizzy Bone]
Your girl is cheatin on you, you finna go to jail
Now you just lost yo’ job, yo’ house is up for sale
Your friend just passed away, before you said goodbye
Your son goin to war, and you still don’t know why
Yo’ mom contracted AIDS, and right before she died
She couldn’t speak a word, but she can blink her eyes
See she was paralyzed, and you so scared to cry
You wanted to show her your strength, and tell her the Lord provides
The church is takin money, sellin granny a dream
She wanna go to heaven, think she can get it with green
Yo’ cousins gettin rich, off of a triple beam
You see him losin weight, it started off with ‘Premes
It elevated to rocks, and now he’s on the pipe
He used to ride 22’s, now cousin ride a bike
Yo’ momma got a man, her man he got a temper
So he beat you right up, gets drunk and don’t remember
As soon as you go to school, yo’ teacher asked “What happened?”
Your peers they know the story, you say “Ain’t nuttin crackin”
Yo’ money’s runnin low, and it ain’t no welfare
Remember ‘Pac said, “Who in the hell cares?”
But Bizzy cared for ya, see I can only stare
These are the muddy waters, that I can see and hear
See and hear, see and hear, see and hear, see and hear
See and hear…
[Chorus – 2X]
[Bizzy Bone]
You had you four friends, and y’all grew up together
On the corner swiggin wines, singin about the ghetto
Breakin bread, stealin cars, and stayin in trouble
House parties with the homies and then watchin ’em rumble
But soon yo’ friendship crumbles, as you grow up in life
You reached the age of 30, and soon forget yo’ plight
What if they blew up, and became the biggest group EVER?
