Out of the ordinary news of the times

A continuum of news stories from around the world that I feel have the potential to impact upon all of our lives

I have views relating to the great diversity of change that is currently taking place around the world. I regularly read overseas news items. I feel that many of these stories have not been given due attention in the Australian media. I have created this blog in order to post different overseas stories that I feel may interest you as much as they have interested me.
