As we commence another New Year no
doubt there will be those who who will
announce their planned resolutions for
We all make promises to cut back on our
drinking or smoking, reduce our weight and
keep fit. However, whilst we all may have
good intentions, it seems no sooner have
we given up on eating Christmas cake,
the New Year’s parties start off with more
food and wine to indulge, bringing about
an abrupt halt to the diet plans.
Being fit and into our old age is a
wonderful achievement and a goal worth
seriously striving for.
Over indulging can have harmful effects
on one’s body, producing everything from
weight gain to diabetes, heart attack and
Cutting back on our food and alcohol
intake as well as increasing our exercise
pattern may help to lengthen our life and
help to contribute to perhaps even making
it a longer life too.
Some business managers say they are
going to cut back on their workload and
business stress, all noble and wise decisions.
However, like the smoking addiction, so too
can be work. However, as one minister of
religion once told a gathering of graduating
Nuriootpa High School Year 12’s there is
more to life than work.
He said whenever he talks to the dying
person, so often their biggest regret is that
they spent too much time at work. One
person was even recorded as saying, if he
knew he was going to be dying so soon he
would have spent far more time out chasing
butterflies as well as a whole host of other

devoting more time to the family and
enjoying our life’s goals full of fun and

When the November Pinery
Fire devastation tore through the
livelihoods of many in the Wasleys
area, it made no exception to the
McMillan’s family home of 20 years
Morry and Shirley McMillan, along
with their son Jeffrey, were barely
able to escape the fire with their lives.
When it was safe to return to where
the home had once stood, all that was
left was their German Shepherd
Rambo who, feared gone, unbelievably
came running out of the ashes.
Morry and Shirley McMillan have
been pillars of strength for their
“I am so proud of my parents,” says
Judy Naulty the McMillan’s daughter.
“My dad is the strongest man I
know and my mum is a beautiful,
inspiring, nurturing lady.”
Judy says this reflecting on
incidences that have taken place in
her parents’ lives.
Prior to the Pinery Fire, Morry
McMillian was in a truck accident
that resulted in the loss of both of
his legs and Shirley McMillan was
diagnosed with cancer.
Thanks to their loving grandson,
Lee Naulty, they are able to reside in
his home until they can move forward
from the loss caused by the fire.
Throughout this relocation, Pam
Makin and the team at Carers Link
have been providing assistance to the
After hearing how, prior to the fires,
Morry had just got a new recliner to
be able to watch TV in comfort, Pam
contacted Wohlers to see if there was
anything they could do to assist with
After hearing the family’s story,
Daryl and Marilyn Wohlers decided to
donate a Cambridge New York Trent
Leather Lift Chair valued at $1,849.00
to the family.
When Wohlers delivered and
set up the recliner in the home the
McMillans are currently residing in,
Morry was grinning from ear to ear.
“Thank you so much to the Wohlers
family and staff,” said Morry.
“Words cannot describe my
gratitude for this recliner.”
“We are very happy to be able to
help such a lovely, deserving family,”
said Daryl and Marilyn Wohlers. “We
wish them a bright and wonderful
