He's getting sicker by the week and sleeps through the rainy nights while homeless joint executives crying for millions of dollars ensure their buildings are kept empty all night.

On the Street
Is Robyn the Junkie in pain? The new euthanasia legislation might be to her liking. She can wave to those women she sold drugs to as she descends into the pit.
The man formerly known as The Most Active Volunteer at St Bede’s Anglicare breakfasts cracked a rib on Birkenhead Bridge last week. He skidded his electric bike on a patch of oil. He also lacerated his hands, but is otherwise alright.
Chris Burns is jumping on the virus bandwagon saying they can inject homeless and other Hutt Street Centre clients with the vaccine and mRNA replacement shots. No one is treating him seriously. The Hutt Street Centre essentially closed up shop on the non-conforming homeless during the virus pandemic.
A grandmother brought a child to a soup kitchen. His father has been forbidden to contact any of his children after been arrested on a ridiculous charge of child abuse. The case is one of WOKE abuse that should go down in the history of evil masquerading as concern. A huge amount of damage has been done to multiple families including children for what could have been handled with a little counselling.
A white woman and her three children from another country were on the grass at a sports stadium about 7:00pm in the evening. It was dark. What seemed a natural and healthy activity was broken when a man told her husband at a church that it was unsafe for her to be there. Maybe it was unsafe. This is what we’ve become.
People’s Pantry at O’Halloran Hill is still closed with no predicted reopening date.
The shooting-up room man at Semaphore Park is strangely not home anymore. He wasn’t arrested, but took a leave of absence about one month previously.
The N.D.I.S. worker and her husband have had a baby. Relatives trooped to the embattled couple’s unit to celebrate the event while Megaphone Man watched through his security cameras.
Julie Mann has gotten at least a $200 compensation order and a six-month Good Behaviour bond at the Port Adelaide Magistrates court for multiple break-ins and damage to Megaphone Man’s car last year. It cost more than $200 to fix the damage, but Megaphone Man says he’s happy with the result as he doubts Julie Mann can last six-months without breaking the Good Behaviour bond.
Meanwhile, the N.D.I.S. contract worker is still trying to nail Megaphone Man in the same court for damaging her fence. The lawyer for Megaphone Man has called for all evidence to be presented by the N.D.I.S. employee, which might include a “truck driver” assaulting Megaphone Man on the night.
A woman in the soup kitchen scene is allegedly pimping her adult daughter.
Cos We Care has begun a food program at five schools while maintaining their Saturday food distribution at Elizabeth and on Sundays in the city. They operate without any paid employees and almost without any government patronage.
The Hutt Street Centre is riddled with bureaucrats. Back in the old days you could ask a nun for information and she’d answer all questions. Now a caller asking questions is referred to multiple paid employees as only certain people can answer certain common questions. Alienation within is rife as one cranky employee couldn’t even say how much the meals cost. She thought maybe two-dollars, but two other employees said they are free to homeless people and those undergoing “programs”.
Cornerstone Housing put a “community engagement housing officer” at ONE Life church to see if there were any homeless people there.
A man at Fred’s Van was angry that an elderly couple he’d given a ride to were coughing and sneezing in his car. They said they weren’t sick, but now the driver has a sore throat. He said he’d never give them a lift again.
Police swarmed Pelican Place, Semaphore Park the Friday after the big raids earlier in the week. They were either saving the small fry to later or got confessions or evidence from those already charged that implicated those subjected to the new search warrants.
Julie Mann’s pals are conspicuously absent while the Port Mall is lighter on druggies as well. One can’t but feel sorry for the small-time dealers and users who resemble victims or pawns caught up in an industry that penetrates high levels of national governments.

Puddle Jumpers new store at Hindmarsh
The best thing about Puddle Jumpers is their children’s’ programs, but they also provide free food. Their latest venture is a free food store in the old brick mission building on the grass between the lanes of Port Road at Hindmarsh. It’s named in honour of Chelsea Ireland who was murdered last year.
It’s a two-room joint and a toilet with an outdoor entrance. They give away groceries, bread, used blankets and vegetables. The gold coin donation is semi-obligatory, but the value of the free stuff far surpasses a few coins.
Puddle Jumpers pay rent on the building that has been mostly empty for decades. The last tenant was Kat Lee who ran the free food store at Rosewater until that suspicious fire burnt it to a crisp. Kat didn’t stay long and is down south working with a political group.
Whether Puddle Jumpers should be involved in free food is debatable. Perhaps for the children in their program and their families, but the usual crowd who go to free food joints don’t seem deserving enough.
New Food Hub in that small brick building on grass near corner of Anne St. and Port Rd., Hindmarsh. Free fruit, vegetables and bread. Open 7-days a week 10:00am to 2:00pm and 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

(above) A Job Prospects business card left amongst a homeless woman's clothing in the Adelaide CBD parklands. It is doubly stressful sleeping out at night then spending the day in a fake employment preparation course and then getting kicked off the dole at the end of it. (Adelaide Homeless Journal June 2021).
A horrible evening
