There is indeed a Paradise (Post Code 5075). Here's a view from a Mystery Worshipper
Did anyone welcome you personally?
A gentleman shook our hand and smiled at us as we walked into the foyer. There were people at the entrance to the auditorium selectively handing out "welcome" cards – no one in our party received one.
Bob notes that would be St. Peter. Why would St. Peter hand out "welcome" cards to sinners ?
What musical instruments were played?
Two keyboard players, two percussionists, guitarists and a saxophonist. There was a choir of about 50 plus six 'lead' singers.
Bob feels inclined to ask about the harps but hopes the saxophonist played in the style of Charlie Parker.
What one thing will you remember about all this in seven days' time?
During the church news presentation, they advertised a carol service that was to be held soon. They said, "The man himself will be there!" I was thinking that it was quite a coup that Paradise had got God to come the carol service in person, until I found out that they were referring to Guy Sebastian!

Nick Xenophon who holds the balance of power in the Senate appears to have turned his back on the Mandatory ISP Level Filtering Scheme of Senator Conroy. From The Register
Great Australian Firewall dead in the water?
Sex Party add insult to injury

The final nail in the coffin of the great Australian Firewall was hammered home last week when independent Senator Nick Xenophon withdrew support for the measure. This takes the voting arithmetic in the Australian Upper House beyond the point of no-return, as there are now 43 votes stacked up against the proposal with just 33 in favour.
Under the Australian constitution, tied votes are decided in the negative: so the Labour Government now needs an about-turn of Damascene proportions, both by the Green Party and by Senator Xenophon, to reverse its now inevitable defeat on this issue.
bob notes that wise decisions are sometimes made in Paradise !
I turn 65 in 17 days time. I'm hoping I live that long.
