Dolphins to the rescue

A heartwarming story about how a pod of dolphins helped save a group of swimmers from being attacked by a great white shark off the coast of New Zealand. The BBC Online has the story.

The swimmers were being circled by a great white shark, which came within a couple of metres.

"...around half a dozen dolphins suddenly appeared and herded the swimmers together. The mammals swam in tight circles to create a defensive barrier as the great white lurked under the surface. The swimmers said the dolphins were extremely agitated and repeatedly slapped the water with their tails, presumably to try to deter the predator as it cruised nearby. "

Woolworths new policy about exchange clothes shows how poor their service really is. My daughter was given Woolworths clothes for christmas of course the wrong size so off to the shops we go. We find 1 top size 13-14, not muuch clothing at Woolworths for this age group,and take to exchange it, was R45, neither of the two items we had were of that value, one was R85 the other R35, so we were not allow to swop it and get a voucher or pay in the difference. 3 Woolworths later no other shop had the shirt in her size or annything else she liked in her size. The items can not be changed for vouchers as we don't have a slip!
Woolworths your service sucks!!!!
I'm sitting with clothes I can do nothing with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
