Auctioneer Haesley Cush thought he had auctioned every before — until now. AAP Image/Claudia Baxter.I have auctioned some amazing stuff over the years. Some great homes, some amazing experiences for charities, beautiful pieces of art and artefacts from around a the world.Regularly people ask, “What’s the craziest thing you’ve been asked to auction?”.But yesterday I received a call from my dear friend, Diane O’Reilly, who asked if I could do an auction at the ‘Mother of Boys Lunch’ next Friday 11th May.She is emceeing the event with Kylie Lang and they’re are raising money for the Red Rose Foundation.As I was checking my diary, I casually asked her “What are we selling?”.There was a pause.“Well Haesley you’ve probably not done one of these before” she said“Try me,” I jeered condescendingly.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours ago“We are auctioning off a vaginal rejuvenation treatment”. Long pause.“You’re right” I replied after what seemed like an inappropriate amount of time.“What is that?”.Diane went on to explain the amazing work conducted by Brisbane gynaecologist, Rod Allen. She went to great lengths to explain that the procedure was ideal for many woman, that it was not cosmetic and it was a highly in demand procedure that could be life changing for may women.After her pep talk and knowing I would have a room full of captive women. I flicked through the diary to ensure I could recite my new insights in modern magical medicine.Unfortunately I will be overseas!!But in true Mothers of Boys spirit Diane jumped straight on the phone and my good mate Peter Bergin, from Place Estate Agents will be wielding his gavel over what I can honestly say is the most surprising prize I have ever seen on an auction catalogue.
Tired of walking through clouds of vape smoke while you are out? Well starting next summer you may see less vaping than normal. That is because Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that will ban the usage of vapor-generating electronic devices or vaping in most workplace environments. The bill titled SB 7012 was signed Friday and will go into effect starting July 1st of next year. Those found in violation of the ban can face a maximum civil penalty of $25, may have to complete 50 hours of community service, or may be required to successfully complete a school-approved anti-tobacco “alternative to suspension” program. Vaping is not outlawed in all places, however, the bill still allows those who partake, to indulge at private residences that are not used for commercial purposes and places such as stand-alone bars, designated rooms in hotels, retail vape shops, and facilities owned or rented by membership association, smoking cessation programs, or for medical or scientific research according to our news partners at CBS12. While many people support vaping as a way to cut back on the cigarette consumption, the amendment drew support from more than 68.9 percent of voters in November, and was part of a constitutional amendment that also asked voters to ban oil and gas drilling off Florida’s shorelines. It is one of 10 new laws recently implemented by Gov. Ron DeSantis, including a law that makes it a second-degree, up from a third-degree felony, for anyone to kill or cause great bodily harm to police, fire, or search-and-rescue dogs or horses.
