I had no education of HIV/AIDS. happening in the gay community. or there was talk of it that it was "This isn't right."

the diagnosis was real. I had another test to make sure Going back again, well, it was. what about them? "I've come up with this diagnosis, was to get my kids tested they both came back negative. and luckily enough You were very proactive - what's the reaction going to be?" "Who do I tell, how do I tell and Not first. "Sandy, don't tell anyone. It was said to me by my specialist,

can I butt in there? That's an interesting point - Michelle, Maybe I should ask you this, between HIV and AIDS, isn't there? there is a difference

that you get infected with. and that's the virus back in the 1980s, really, and it was a termed coined over a number of years and what it does

your immune system. is destroy and damage

with normal immune systems with very damaged immune systems, but people or the infection So HIV is actually the virus of a descriptive term, if you like, and AIDS just really is more a very damaged immune system. which reflects to tell your children? When did you decide

and then avoiding breastfeeding. of ethical dilemmas And let alone the whole raft that are faced by mothers? we're out of time. I hate to say this -

very interesting. I think it would be really the teenage years. I am well, yes. on the new medication. I'm doing very well

Almost a million Australians served action in Europe, Mediterranean, in the Second World War, seeing North Africa, South-East Asia and other parts of the Pacific but for the Royal Air Force pilots it's only now that their personal stories are being revealed in a new book entitled

book entitled 'Flak'. We were join bide the author and one of the subjects in his book Charles Budd Tingwell. You put aviation, it caused your youths to Tingwell. You put your interest in be spent in a state of extended sexual frustration? There's nothing sexy about aeroplanes and aviation of the Second World War 14-year-old and 15-year-old girls. of the Second World War for I'm trying to encourage my 15-year-old sons not to same path. I was interested to read 15-year-old sons not to take the that you had said that certainly flying missions made your blood turn cold? I don't think any Air Force pilot was never not frightened, I don't care what they say. We all got scared a lot. It didn't seem like it say. We all got scared a lot. It particularly a passion of yours? No, didn't seem like it was as long paz I could get through and not

not get shot down and get my wings back in the early stage training, back in the early stage of the only when you returned to scrubbed. Why was it that it was training, just didn't want to be

Williamstown that you ever really became comfortable with flying? Teaching anybody to do anything you have to learn a bit more about you're doing. Driving a car would have to learn a bit more about what sitting in a fairly hot aircraft, be the same. But when you're

the Mosquito, with an inexperienced pilot in hot aircraft beside you, sometimes they were and sometimes they were group captains occasionally I did and high-ranking officers and But that." The rate reversal was good.

learn a lot fast. Because the But you do learn a lot and you wrong they went wrong very Mozzie was very hot. If things went Interesting stories have never come out? other pilots and Interesting that guys like Bud and would not speak of other pilots and other RAF guys I guess Bud would not speak of their exploits? more. From my point of I guess Bud could elaborate on that fulfilment of a really I did this book as a sort of and sometimes not so wonderful old fellas that flew these wonderful aeroplanes. And extraordinary aeroplanes. And participated in an of history. So extraordinary and dramatic period

decided a couple of years ago to for me, that was the interest. So I actually have a face actually track them down and and try and record some of the actually have a face to face chat they hadn't actually spoken about things that they'd done. And often it before because they thought, "Well, I'm with someone who have "Well, I'm with someone who I don't does and what have to explain what this aeroplane really just kind of opened up. does and what this is." So they made a point nat you really just kind of opened up. You made a point nat you didn't, talk about the it the awfulness of war that about the awfulness of war, and is stopped people like yourself talking about the conventions, you couldn't be talking about it? Yes, at some of caught line shooting in the Air your experience. If you shot down Force. Line shooting is inflating three aircraft, you musn't say shot down five. It became three aircraft, you musn't say you shot down five. It became such an in-built thing. After a dicey trip at night, you tended to play it all down and it was just a and came back having a few beers

that thou shalt not be caught down and it was just a convention skiting. What about when we started telling the stories, was it Saturday down with Michael and emotional? There are not many of us around but fellas around but fellas I get my wings with, we're starting to speak a bit more openly now, as years go But we always, it's a funny thing, we weren't frightened of talking more openly now, as years go by.

about it, you didn't talk about the people who couldn't really understand. Families seem to understand that you'd been through a bit here and there. But now I a bit here and there. But now I notice that we're sort of out line shooting each other again. I always think that people are usually not so reluctant to talk about things as long as they're being asked right egz questions that stimulate as long as they're being asked the them and show an interest. I've always had an interest in this topic all my life. I think I actually, that's an advantage I actually had. An actually had. An interest. It's almost... A vague interest. It's always a dubious passion. It is. You describe the Mosquito and you say, t remains one of the most attractive aircraft ever built, even understated lines and femenness sleekness with femenness sleekness with the high naval tailpin,. A

naval tailpin,. A pillar of aviation asthetic." Did you have girlfriends? No. We that. The common ground. Young men today girlfriends? No. We agreed with all

similar kind of raptuous flowery language. For a sort today will talk about their cars in

language. For a sort of, I guess, for a Spitfire pilot

for a Spitfire pilot in 2021, it was like the equivalent of have agFerrari to play agFerrari to play with? If we'd known what a Ferrari known what a Ferrari was. Most of us had learnt to fly us had learnt to fly before we could drive. Probably, yes. It depended. You of flying before you went solo? Probably, yes. It depended. You had so many trips and so many trips and I vaguely remember having remember having about seven trips which

Michael went through my logbook and he's more accurate. he's more accurate. I'd like to say how accurate how accurate the whole thing is. If you know any you know any Air Force floks who haven't read anything for haven't read anything for a while, get get them to read that. Why is it called that? part of our language, called that? It's a word that's part of our language, flak, getting flak from flak from someone. It for a German - anti-aircraft flak from someone. It is an Akronm for a German - anti-aircraft fire. The development The development of exploding shells in the air that in the air that were fused to go off across an enemy fighter, blokes, even if they didn't come them had to encounter flak? It was across an enemy fighter, all of circumstances. a hard word to say under certain

circumstances. I was saying... I could hear it in my could hear it in my headphones. "What "What are you saying?" Gospel flak". I should What do you do as a pilot with It was very much common language. can't. Not in our job. Once we turn flak? Do you fly to avoid it? You or Mosquitos, you had to fly a our cameras on, either in Spitfires straightened level and the fellas down below knew that. And you trusted that they missed and mostly they did in my they did in my case. Quite terrifying for you. Thank youing about it now, yeah -- thinking about it now,

about it now, yeah? They were doing the reconnaissance and then they could come and bomb you. I was giving a talk recently and I was talking seriously about the types of anti-aircraft fire and the guns. The 88 millimetres and the 105 millimetres. A big bloke came up - the tag was, "I was very luck -- lucky they missed." A bloke came up and and said, "I'd like to say one of the people who missed you." and said, "I'd like to say I was He had this crazy conversation about 88 millimetres or 100 5 millimetres. "It was 103, not 105." I thought, "It was a bit strange." There's a point in the book that you make about the Anzac legend. And how you believed we talk a lot about the Australian zack legends and put them high on the mant skpl about the Australian zack legends you talk about the fact you believe that given the circumstance said, any of us would do the -- circumstances, any of us would do the same thing. I say in the book and maybe a lot of people would disagree but I don't think there's anything really inherently, they weren't born different people than you or I. They weren't born different people than you or I. They performed brilliantly and bravely and fulfilling a job that had to be done. But I'm a bit sort of suspicious of the new done. But I'm a bit sort of mantra of the kind of legend and hero stuff. 50 fellas that I spoke suspicious of the new kind of

to didn't mention the once. A lot of them went, "Please, to didn't mention the word hero not don't." It's

don't." It's like 'genius', we overuse that word. To me they're all heroes, just in their humility and the self-afacement and the kind of attitude, "Well, this was something that had to be done we did it." Terrific guys to chat something that had to be done and to. Perhaps you scored the to. Perhaps you scored the book for Christmas. Time for a quick trip

eccentric Pom set More than two years ago another

to cycle eccentric Pom set off with a mate London to raise to cycle overland from Siberia to

at riv. He didn't intend to London to raise money to help kids Australia at riv. He didn't intend to come to harsh climate, he clearly needed Australia but after enduring the some R & R. will go to great some R & R. Proving that people will go to great length, he took his bike and his passion to help underprivileged children and overcame all things to underprivileged children and his considerable saddle sores here overcame all things to finally rest on the couch. How are you? Alanis? his considerable saddle sores here My bicycle is called Alanis because I bought it in 1997 when use a year when Alanis Morissette was doing well. Was that after 'Bitter

Pill'. An embarrassing name and well. Was that after 'Bitter Little question but it stuck. 1997, have bike you'd like to change then? No, you discovered anything about the the bike has done well. A fairly bike you'd like to change then? No, standard mountain bike. Nice strong steel frame, so you can weld it if it snaps. Occasionally I have steel frame, so you can weld it if get a new wheel. I'd imagine it snaps. Occasionally I have to spending so much time by yourself get a new wheel. I'd imagine in lonely thought would drag up stuff about yourself which you probably didn't like, did it happen? Yeah, it has. I think one of the good things about being on a bike for so long, hours on the bike on my own, you get a lot of time to think and we don't get a lot of thinking time these days but sometimes I get very bored sometimes I get very bored with my own company. Do you get aggressive about the fact, annoyed about the fact, "Why am I doing this? Should I stop?" Do eye have to fight that all the time? -- you have to fight that all the time? Not all the time. Sometime yz go threw week when the wind is blowing the wrong way and the wind is happening, and the wind is happening, and I think what am I doing?" What did discover about yourself that you're what am I doing?" What did you not proud of? Sometimes I get frightened when I'm about to go to a more out of the way country like Before I went to those places I got Siberia, or Papua New Guinea. a lot of pessimism from people who were telling me that it's impossible. You're going to die. All those kind of things. I were telling me that it's

emails from people and All those kind of things. I got frightened. When I got there, all emails from people and got the people were great and I was well looked after. frightening moments? I try to well looked after. You've had some We're trying to highlight the emphasise all the positive things. negatives: that's me.

chased by a gang in Papua New robbed a couple of times. I got Guinea. They were probably trying to be friendly and I was paramoid frame of mind. I had a to be friendly and I was in a couple of close run-ins with psycholoans. psycholoans. Got knocked off my bike -- cyclones. Got bike -- cyclones. Got kpwaufed off my bike once. The biggest danger is a car who is not concentrating a car who is not concentrating and that only happened that only happened once. That's all I'm worried this to try to raise money for Kids that works with children at riv. at Risk. It's a Christian charity Street children, Children at risk is Street children, things like that. the world today Children at risk is a huge issue in street children around the world and and poorer cities. A every three seconds of preventable diseases diseases or hunger. Money raised for makes a difference. I'm for these kind of charities really to raise millions or change makes a difference. I'm not going to raise millions or change the world but I've Australian so far and it's slowly ticking

dependent on people for certain crossings for accommodation too I'd imagine? You're imagine? You're not going to fly anywhere? I'm trying to do the whole of the route by bicycle or by boat? who will give you berth on a ship? In some places boat? So you ned to find someone

there are ferries, that's nice and easy but the biggest challenge so easy but the biggest challenge so far was Hong Kong down to no ferries. I didn't want to fly because it's a bit pricy and it feels a bit easy jumping and arriving in Australia. You don't really see anything. I thought I'd have boats. That involved thought I'd have to hitchhike on boats. That involved visiting yacht clubs and people. I found a yacht from Hong clubs and speaking to lots of Kong to the Philippines and ship down to Indonesia and a sort Kong to the Philippines and a cargo

of diving vessel gave me a lift across ship down to Indonesia and a sort

map said you were flying out of across from Papua New Guinea. The Darwin but you're Perth. You need a ship to get you Darwin but you're now going out of to Singapore. If any of the viewers happen to be in the shipping business at the moment, I'm going to be riding to Perth and there hoping to hitch a ride on something that floats to be riding to Perth and from

something that floats up to Singapore. That's my next big logistical challenge. I'm fascinated by someone decides how they want to do something like this. Do you know why particularly you decided to do it? Are you for a major distraction perhaps or I know you're doing it for charity, decided to do it? Are you looking

was there another side of things that has inspired you to do this? Probably to be honest the want to do it came do it came first and then I should help a charity as well. I do it came first and then I thought was teaching geography which is quite a challenge in itself. I thought a different sort of challenge and it would learn about the world. Sort of challenge and it would be good to started as smaller idea and it kind of grew and grew. A bicyc sl a good way good way to learn about the world of grew and grew. A bicyc sl a very -- bicycle is a very good way learn about the world. You are at the -- bicycle is a very good way to

the level of the people so you get invited to stay and you can carry your bike when you have to. You get up close to people and maybe have a romance along the way or... Yes, I've had one romance. Met a lovely girl in Hong Kong. An long-distance relationship which is girl in Hong Kong. An ongoing another challenge. Hopefully that is alive and

is alive and well the long-distance romance and pedalling along well beautifully. Have you ever wanted to buy yourself or your family a digital video camera but were put off by the price?

First came the baby boomers, then their children, the Generation Xs, now we have Generation Y. We were joined to talk about the brave new breed. You're a baby boomer? A wannabe yrbs. He probably has an iPod and drive as WRX. Close, close. What's a WRX? The car that fully sick boys drive sick boys drive around Chapel Street on a Friday night. But 40-year-old to 43-year-old men in a Street on a Friday night. But it's mid-life crisis that don't Porsche but a WRX. I'm a mid-life crisis that don't by the 46-year-old. Have you gone through the mid-life crisis? I'm sitting in it right now. It's going on now.

it right now. It's going on now. Look at me. What is this new Generation Y known them, it's 1978 to 1994. 4.5 million Australians which Generation Y known as? To define

large group of people. Before anyone goes anyone born between that year and year, to that model. What are the that year and year, there's a flaw to that model. What are the general shifts, the big shifts we're seeing

interact. As a trend changes in the way customers interact. As a trend spotter, you put yourself in circumstances there are a lot of people. How do put yourself in circumstances where you watch it? My work is not just about trend hang out with people who hang out about trend spotting. I look at, I and the whole business seminar and see what people are wearing, so yesterday was all about are the trends and what are people wearing? My part of the day was how are we going to interact in the customer space. Prada have implemented a whole lot implemented a whole lot of flat screens in Using the technology. They've put RFI you pull RFI detags in their clothes so when you pull them off the rag, it you pull them off the rag, it puts on the things from the catwalk with the rack? That's great. Replays wearing that stuff. I like it things from the catwalk with people put anything to go together. When you're going you're going through the tollway here in here in Melbourne, it picks up and charges you charges you the toll, when you go into into the changeroom t will bring up a screen the store that will go with a screen where accessories are in the store that will go with the outfit you've traditional way of advertising advertise differently. The which might have been on but in the paper, that Generation which might have been on television Advertising has a 30-second Yers aren't responding to that? Advertising has a 30-second slot. Television is median but it has to be done in Television is still an appropriate different ways. We're talking about mobile telephones - this year, there will be 2.7 mobile telephones - by the end of billion mobile phones in the world, 700 million of which will have the ability to have Internet access while on the road. That allows you to pinpoint the location of somebody where and when they somebody where and when they are. So So you can imagine say a Sports Girl in Melbourne have a list of people's email addresses and and they could use technology and people's email addresses and phones pinpoint where in Melbourne some pinpoint where in Melbourne some of their customers are. If wereane one-kilometre radar, they their customers are. If they could get technology to notify them that they're close and send them a text message to say 20% off everything in store for everything in store for the next 15 minutes. That's mind blowing. 2.5 billion mobile phones in the world. Howmany tebs messages are being sent? Between 6 billion and billion. Technology is too fast for sent? Between 6 billion and 7 baby boomers, for the previous generations to keep up with. Or are we good at sort of adapting? I don't think it's about keeping up with technology. It's about using technology that supports your lifestyle. A new laptop is out of date in a week anyway. The mistake we make is always trying to be on the edge. We end up on the bleeding edge rather than the cutting edge. What we need to do, if it supports your liferstyle, it supports your lifestyle. Don't buy a funky phone if you're never going to use the features. If you with pick it and answer it, that's enough. I'm a bit like that. The point with features. If you with pick it up

looking at generational changes, what's happening, younger people, what are they starting to do? Employers, you've talked about the difference in Generation Ys difference in Generation Ys and the ways in which they're being marketed to. How do employers adapt their employment? Bigger issues their employment? Bigger issues in the Australia we have such a shortage in the marketing space. In of high-quality good of high-quality good skilled people. There's not into the work force. In 2008, more There's not as many people coming Australians will leave Australians will leave the work force than enter it for the first time in history.

This that back the front, by your This is inspired, maybe I've got

regions within Australia. It sure does. You have three wines we're going to try today for going to try today for different reasons. Let's start. This is Franklin River? I'm screwing the bottom of the bottle rather than screwing the top which easier. This is from the screwing the top which makes it

easier. This is from the McClarenvale. No, this is Hunter Valley. Hunter is famous for sem on -- seminon. You get all Valley. Hunter is famous for its sorts of wines there? The two sem on -- seminon. You get all grapes most is the grapes most is the chiraz as well. Most regions can grow most grapes. grapes most is the chiraz as well. Can they grow good grapes and make good wines. And you can have other grapes up there and chardonnay is quite OK but this is the bees knees for the hunter. I had a bottle of 1996 of this same wine. 10 years older than this. Right. older than this. Right. That's lovely.

lovely. That put me off a bit last time. I was waiting for it to go on David's shoes. Are you going to have a go at the spitting thing? That's revolting and apologise for that. It -f you can't do it, don't. Do we have a mop. Are you having a go? An elevation problem. Very good direction. What should we look for? Do we have a mop. Are you having a

Flinty, minerally, a bit of lemon grass tang to it. Great for seafood and, as I say, you can cellar that wine as long as you like. How much would you pay? $16. would you pay? $16. Very good value for money. What about the Hunter? Very hard to work it all for money. What about the Hunter? other great thing about this wine Very hard to work it all out, the is it's only 10.5 alcohol. This Chinese restaurant because you can a ripper if you're going off to a drink almost twice as much of does make a good grape? You say I'm going to remember that. What good grapes. Are good grapes sweet or

This is one of the ways get rid of that. Why did I do that professionals rinse professionals rinse their glasses. That's just That's just water now. You passed it to me. It's alright. Once screw the bottle. Clearly not it to me. It's alright. Once again, bright. You can hear the crack. screw the bottle. Clearly not very bright. You can hear the crack. The other thing is, with other thing is, with screw caps, which are should not be associated with lesser lesser quality wine, the best wine deserves screw never get a tainted bottle like you deserves screw caps, is that you can with a cork. When you wine to smell in can with a cork. When you get the wine to smell in a restaurant, you just say, just say, "Buzz off, it's OK." Any time you have a screw top you don't need need to smell?

imagined. A 2005. That's not at all the way I imagined. I drink a imagined. I drink a chardonnay. We don't need to rinse because it is from white to red and this will be much more flavour. It means good. It's a label that they used in the latter part of the 19th century It's a label that they used in the which they discovered. This is a fantastic wine. Fantastic value. $12.45 recommend said. $12.45 recommend said. Cerbgz recommended. Probably you could find it for significantly less than that. The McClarenvale. You can see the sea. Does it make it a maritime region? Shiraz is wonderfully well wherever you put it.

Europe it means they have to don't have a little bug. But in replace them every 40 or 50 years. That's fantastic for value for money. Very That's fantastic for $12. Very good value for money. Very plumby. value for money. Very plumby. And dark have said. I'm trying. Let's dark chocolate. That's what I would forget this. A photograph you've have said. I'm trying. Let's not where?

In a recent Network Ten series, 'Median', they are able to 'Median', they are able to have the pressure of having a person in the family who communicates from the dead which is not far from dead which is not far from Allison DuBois's real imagination. This has been her world undoubtedly captures our

My mum was dumbfounded. pain anymore and he's still with you." My mum was dumbfounded. As a six-year-old did didn't realise he was dead. If all? It didn't scare me because I would put me down for a nap when I can kind of understand that. My mum wasn't that he was taking a nap wasn't feeling well, so I thought that he was taking a nap and he waez better now waez better now when he was in the casket. It's lot of people say that. A lot casket. It's interesting because a lot of people say that. A lot of people suggest that when they've lost someone recently

lost someone recently they get visited? Yes. It's very I'm trying to dispel the hype visited? Yes. It's very common and normal. Be a mum. Be a lawyer. around what we do. You can be very

Whatever. And have that's very human. It's not weird Whatever. And have this ability and it's not strange. And it makes that's very human. It's not weird sense. I did read how you it's about recognising the signs sense. I did read how you said that

and symbols and things and I it's about recognising the signs remember when high grandmother died, I could smell or perfume S. that a sign? It is. Often they'll through with a cigar smell. A sign? It is. Often they'll come grandfather that smoked cigars or a grandmother with a perfume. It's very common way of saying, "I'm grandmother with a perfume. It's a still here and around you." frightening you. Sometimes they'll contact you in that still here and around you." Without

contact you in that matter just to not cause you any harm. I have a very important question. Do people become more reasonable when they die? They do. When people die they kind of drop their issues. They're kind of looking back at their life who they've affected saying that they might have done things differently. I always say live life without without regret and my dad always said make no apologies for who you are. If you live your life hiding things and hurting people, when you die, you have a lot to make up. I always ask people to just be who they are and then they have nothing to regret later. In your new 'We Are Their Heaven', why that? I don't to regret later. In your new book,

don't understand? Well, allow nee 'We Are Their Heaven', why that? I explain it. I titled it that because 9 times out of 10, out of the 2000 readings that I had done at the time I wrote that book, the people who passed preferred to be around the living that they love. It's not that they couldn't go to this otheriatopia where the people who have chied -- utopia

people who died are, but they're who have chied -- utopia where the bound by love, not because they have to stay with you, you're with what makes them happy. have to stay with you, but because You're where their heart is. would make sense that parents who die their children and see that their children are fine and kick their die would still want to be around

feet up on the their old recliner and do doo those feet up on the table and sit in things because that's things because that's what made them happy. I'm intrigued by your work with criminal them happy. I'm intrigued by your which is the basis work with criminal investigations exhausting because you must be dealing with often violent issues? Yes. I mean, and I there's not a whole lot I haven't seen. So thick skinned at some point and not be as bothered about it. When seen. So you do have to become

thick skinned at some point and not affects me like possible. I'm a human being. It affects me like anybody else but it's it's howio can help and give back -- how I can help

psychics and I understand you call yourself a medium as opposed connotation? It sure does. psychic because it has a negative connotation? It sure does. I'm just looking for I can predict, I'm a predictor, looking for another term, so I say I can predict, I'm a predictor, I predict predict future events and I'm more comfortable with that. Sceptics, don't mind people having their own comfortable with that. Sceptics, I

don't mind people having their own opinions, as long as they're being hurtful or rude about it. The opinions, as long as they're not ones that take it to another level, it's likane football match f you have somebody who doesn't know game and they telling the players have somebody who doesn't know a how to play t makes no sense. like that, I don't listen how to play t makes no sense. It's like that, I don't listen to them. It's an easy way

ever censor the information you receive from the known to edit some of Censor the information. I've been information if the only purpose it serveicise to injure somebody. If it's self-serving to the person who died. I had a through, he wanted to hell his died. I had a grandfather who came grand-daughter he affair he had while he grand-daughter he was sorry for the So I passed the message along, she affair he had while he was alive. didn't know exactly what they meant, so she talked to did remember his father having an affair and it made him feel better so she talked to her father and he

but now the grand-daughter saw grandfather in a different light. I have to be very careful. I hold but now the grand-daughter saw her

myself to a high ethical standard with what I do. It's hard to walk that line. I'm interested in your children because you children because you have three kids and you say they've all inherited this same gift. How can we tell? It's genetic. It runs we tell? It's genetic. It runs in families. Typically snb who tells you they have dreams will have a grandmother or mother that also had those dreams or premonitions. Some of the ways you can tell, it was fairly easy with my daughters. around the age of 2 they started fairly easy with my daughters. At seeing people in their seeing people in their room. They would describe what they looked like. Our oldest daurtd, described a man with a bow tie that like. Our oldest daurtd, she called him a genius and couldn't pronounce it and I looked at my husband and said, "Who do you think that is." He said, "That's my father and he always called himself the genius." He was a chemical engineer and letting his grand-daughter know he was around. It's been quite It's been quite common in our family. Our daughters are very used to it and . Do you think this is a skill you'll take to the afterlife? Yeah. I've actually had some interesting experiences. I brought through a professional medium had died and wrote about it in through a professional medium who second book. He came through had died and wrote about it in my second book. He came through so easily and his information was bam, bam, bam, very spifrb and right on because he is -- specific and right on because he was easy to don't believe there's a soul that who don't believe in a God and remains, when they die and realise what the real deal don't believe there's a soul that

hard for them to connect with what the real deal is, it's real hard for them to connect with believers because their energy is not of a believer because non-believers, each to his own, but that's how it works how they lived. It's not condemning

Do you think this is a calling for but that's how it works the best. life or is there a possibility of retirement whereia let it retirement whereia let it be known you're no longer available you're no longer available to be a medium?
