Stonefish in Moreton Bay

stonefish ianbanksLocals have reported seeing hundreds of stonefish in Moreton Bay, Tingalpa Creek and Wynnum Creek in recent days. Wynnum Manly fisherman are saying they have never seen that many so close to the shore in our area. Parents should keep a watchful eye for this dangerous creature, beachgoers should wear shoes in shallow bay waters. If a person is stung, they are advised to seek medical treatment immediately.

The stonefish has 13 sharp strong dorsal fin spines that are contained within a sheath of thick skin. At the base of each spine there are two venom glands that discharge their contents along ducts in the spine. When disturbed, the fish erects its spines, but maintains its position on the sea floor.

Savoyards Musical

Savoyards Musical Theatre Company Brisbane, is producing the Queensland premiere of the Broadway hit, "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

It's 1927 - the Gatsby era and Prohibition rules. Alcohol is illegal. But when three bootleggers hide 400 cases of gin in the basement of the New York mansion of a witless playboy, all hell breaks loose. Prohibition was never this much fun. The new Broadway musical, "Nice Work If You Can Get It", is Gershwin music, tap dancing, hilarious antics and gorgeous costumes, all set against a beautiful Art Deco set - there was never more gold satin and blue velvet on a stage.

Set in New York in 1927, Nice Work If You Can Get It is the story of charming and wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter, who meets rough female bootlegger Billie Bendix the weekend of his wedding. Jimmy, who has been married three (or is it four?) times before, is preparing to marry Eileen Evergreen, a self-obsessed modern dancer. Thinking Jimmy and Eileen will be out of town, Billie and her gang hide cases of alcohol in the basement of Jimmy's Long Island mansion.

But when Jimmy, his wife-to-be and her prohibitionist family show up at the mansion for the wedding, Billie and her cohorts pose as servants, causing hijinks galore.
