For over 40 years the life and times of the Australian Bushranger, Ben Hall has held my imagination. My first introduction to the name Ben Hall came about by my father when on a long drive from our home in Queensland to our former Victorian home following my fathers service in Viet Nam, and our first opportunity as a family to visit my grandmothers and the wider family of Uncles, Auntys and Cousins, and to recover my sister who was holidaying at the family 's holiday home at Phillip Island. As for anyone who has taken the long road anywhere, a car ride of such distance could be tiresome, not with my father, who had a great interest in the early history of Australia and as well as a wider interest in world history. (something I have inherited) He was a collector of weapons from the earliest periods relating to our country and those which flooded the colony during the great gold rushes of the 1850 's - 1860 's, the Colts Revolvers, Lee Enfield Rifles, The Brown

One of the reasons I would like to be a wreath layer is because my grandpa was in the Korean War. When he was 21, he went to military training in Blackstone, Virginia. He then left from Seattle on a boat on a two week journey to Japan. All of the guys on the boat would be sick by the time they got to Japan. He then had more training in Japan for about four more weeks.

Sherpa fire in Santa Barbara grows to 4,000 acres overnight, putting about 140 homes at risk and closing down major freeways according to federal officials. The fire started on Wednesday afternoon on coastal hills north of Santa Barbara.

Sundowners, similar to Santa Ana winds, fuel many of the fires in the Santa Barbara County.

Landing in California, the migrants were confronted with an existence practically as troublesome as the one they had cleared out. The dust bowl exodus was the largest migration in American history.
In 1587, John White led a group of one hundred women, men, and children in an attempt to build a colony in the new world. After White sailed back to England a year later to bring more supplies, and didn 't return for another three years, the colony mysteriously vanished. There are many theories as to what happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Some say that the settlers were driven out by violence, other’s think that they all died of disease. Personally, my partner and I believe that there were multiple factors that contributed to the Colony’s disappearance.

In this essay I argue that due to Heidi being raised in a country with a different lifestyle, values and traditions compared to her original birthplace, Heidi cannot be judged for not understanding the experiences her biological family went through. However, I still believe that it was fair for Heidi’s birth mother and siblings to ask for financial help since they were struggling.
