I am back and glad so.+ a letter to relatives

My jaunt to the land of hope and glory didn't quite cut the mustard as did previous times, Maybe it was our age factor and less interest by those we visited. To be truthful the best efforts to make our stay pleasing were shared equally by relatives residing in Benson Havant and Dover.
To give and not to count the cost may be an old parable but adding up the amount of time through the ages when relatives have stayed with my family on their overseas visits to us is at least three times greater than we have prevailed upon them. Admittedly some relatives in the UK are reluctant to travel the long distance or are scared of flying despite offers to pay 50% of their fare .
The other factor which delivered a constant flow of anxiety came from the anti social antics and garrulity of our prodigal son who failed in his role of  both driver and assistant; (It is better we leave the details unspoken) Better still unprinted. More details can be obtained on request. So far I have not heard a "I told you so" from my eldest regarding our prodigal son.
A day visit to to my friend Edward who lives in Stowmarket was a success, Edward attended the same nautical school as I in Norfolk many years ago. I also met up with a school mate in Chalgrove Oxford shire Ken Batley OBE Ex magistrate, Ken my age and I attended Chalgrove primary in 1931 and were great mates for many years.
In the wash up I would like to thank all of those persons we prevailed upon and their efforts to please
us despite a few problems.
In the past three days since arriving home to Australia , the peace and tranquillity and restful sleep
aura has been overwhelming,. to all of our Relatives and friends overseas you are welcome to visit us and experience our alternative lifestyle and its benefits. Imagination is the highest kite one can fly..

Vest AKA Les B..... Back soon.

The Muslim Book Store

MUSLIM BOOK STORE

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

So, there I was, walking through the new mall, when I saw that there was a “Muslim Book Store.”

I was wondering what exactly was in a “Muslim book store” so I went on in.

I was wandering around taking a look and the clerk stopped me asked if he could help me
I imagine I didn’t look like his normal clientele.

So I asked for a copy of the UK Immigration Policy Book regarding Muslims.

The Clerk said, “Piss off, get out, and stay out !”

I said, “Yes, that's the one. Do you have that in paperback?”

Australian passports and more.

Going overseas no matter where you will require a passport, if it is a foreign or British passport you will have to have a valid Visa for your return to Australia.

If your passport has expired, you will be required to apply for a new one, and this may be achieved by going on line for the info. Here is the problem., IT WiLL

TAKE 9 WEEKS before it arrives back from merry England..

However if you are like some of my sons who are Brit Born and have not moved from Aus since their arrival in 1971 and have not become naturalized, not only will you have the previous problem but another denying you an Aus passport, which means a six month Wait to become a Aus Citizen after your application.
The application for an Aus passport will take around two weeks and cost half as much as a Brit passport. There are concessions for the aged and infirm..


In the past there have been anomalies where sportsmen like Kepplar Wessells a springbok from Suid Afrika was allowed to play cricket for Aus During the apartheid era,this was expedited by Bob Non combatant chook Hawk

.

It is hoped my youngest son will have his PP returned soon from merry England then we can get moving, we are packed ready to go, just waiting for those pommy paper pushers to pull their finger out. Hopefully the ETD will be July 25 ?.


Back soon ....Vest.

"I Believe its a coming."




Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport lounge in
Bozeman, Montana, awaiting their flights. One is an American Indian,
passing thru from Lame Deer. Another is a cowboy on his way to Billings
for a livestock show. And the third is a fundamentalist Arab student
from the Middle East, newly arrived at Montana State University.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two
Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the
conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowboy leans back in his
chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big
sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing
tumbleweeds around and the old windsock is flapping, but still no plane
comes. Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly speaks.
"At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few."
The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward,
"Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that
is?" The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth,
and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, "That's
'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's
a-comin'".

Saving your Life.





                                            CPR ON YOURSELF........................(different!!)
1 Let's say it's 7.25pm and you're going home (alone of course) after an
unusually hard day on the job.

2 You're really tired, upset and frustrated.



3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts
to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five
miles from the hospital nearest your home.



4 Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.



5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did
not tell you how to perform it on yourself.



6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help,
the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel
faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.



7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and
very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the
cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep
inside the chest.



A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without
let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating
normally again.



8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze
the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the
heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack
victims can get to a hospital.



9 Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their
lives!



10 A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail, kindly sends it to
10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life.



11 Rather than sending jokes, please..contribute by forwarding this mail
which can save a person's life....



12 If this message comes around you .....more than once.....please don't
get irritated......U need to be happy that you have many friends who care
about you & being reminded of how to tackle....Heart
 
attacks..


                     
At 11am  Friday June 11, I shall be involved with making a NEW will , at the loophole Larry's in Gosford. Those family persons who have not been told they are beneficiaries , will not  be beneficiaries .

Birthdays... History... and Un Birthdays

     Today in Most of Australia  The Queen of the Commonwealth's Birthday will be celebrated
Chronologically this elderly old crone lord bless her royal socks  will turn 89 years and 48 days of age.
Her royal highness Aunt Betty will share her Birth year  with such notables as Marilyn Monroe June 1, 1926, Fidel Castro Aug 13- 1926  And David Attenborough May 8 1926, Also an old geezer named Vest ; Yours truly was born (yes born) On July 16-1926, Gorgeous Marilyn was pronounced deceased on Aug 4 -1962 the day I was posted and arrived in 'Fragrant Harbour H/K back in 1962.
     However, it was on this day the ninth day of June in  632 the year of our lord that Mohammed the founder of the Islamic religion Died and  is currently cavorting with numerous virgins in that big Mosque in the heavens, but it was ten years earlier that Big Mo took flight from Mecca on July 16  622, which formed the foundation day for the Islamic Religion.( I sometimes wonder if the world would be a better place if Big Mo had missed his flight on that Magic Carpet.
Alas Big Mo was not the only horror with a 'big' name, as it came to pass in 1945 on my Nineteenth birthday July 16 that the biggest bomb ever was exploded in the new Mexico Desert; the dreaded 'Atom Bomb. Then followed the next world changing event the Apollo Eleven Moon probe which blasted off at 2100hrs GMT on the 16th of July 1969> Getting back to the later Atom bombs on Japan I firmly believe it saved many lives  particularly those who like myself were with the Vanguard of the forces off  the coast of Japan intent on bringing the sons of Nippon to their knees at a great cost to life and limbs.
"I don't Believe it" I have been informed that a place this Guy called Nuzilland a kiwi no doubt Say's we had a Queens birthday last week and another bloke tells me that the Sand gropers in Western Strayer are having one on September 28.
I am hoping to go to the UK as soon as my youngest son gets his passport organised but shall not calling on my favourite rello good Queen Bess..
All for now . Vest....Back soon

Religeous Tolerance.

Subject: Tolerance 101


 "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Sydney. I think it should be the goal of every Australian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."
“That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque, thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, 'The Turban Cowboy' and the other, a topless bar, would be called 'You Mecca Me Hot'."
“Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called 'Iraq of Ribs'."
“Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret' with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods and on the other side a liquor store called 'Morehammered'. All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us."
Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on. And if you are not laughing or smiling at this point, it is either past your bedtime, or it's midnight at the oasis and time to put your camel to bed."

Yes I am still here. Post 1297.

    
     I have been a trifle lax in posting lately due to a more complex lifestyle being thrust upon myself and others in our home.
Gardening is now nearly non existent and the forty bucks spent on a four weekly call for mowing 560 sq metres of lawn ; er grass & weeds is good news for my back pain( Anyhow ; I wonder how many 89 year olds mow their lawns.).    
     My early morning read, the Daily Telegraph, has the usual last ten pages or more and the centre pages stuffed with Thugby League Bilge and Crap. Recently all of the blue NSW thingy splattering my daily read came to a soul shattering end when the Maroons from Joe bonkers banana land alias the land of the great ugly cane toad land and the NSW  mob of bone crunchers clashed yesterday for an hour and a half,  the result being 11 and 10, The local bunch of overweight ugly tattooed mutton heads are saying the refs favoured the ugly cane toads, for their loss, Most of these gormless footy guys their facial grimaces displayed in the sport section would make a child's vision of the closet monster seem like the tooth fairy in comparison..
And to add to the sporting filth we have the apparently squeaky clean  round ball soccer guys FIFA scamming the World Cup of millions of Euros. More to come on that issue..
     Today I shall be popping out to acquire a hearing aid, After I collect my lotto winnings, plus a bit of shopping with er indoors and a visit to the RTA  to acquire a Int Driving Permit As I shall be the emergency driver of the hired vehicle to be driven by our reformed ex prodigal son whilst on our proposed visit to the land of hope and glory as soon as no 5 sons passport arrives from the UK
we expect to depart mid to late July 15. providing we are fit to travel
All for now Back soon .... Vest.

The clever Indonesian Drug smuggler

A couple or so years ago I wrote about the Indonesian drug smuggler who was incarcerated in Sydney silverwater jail. the bloke in question was awarded seven years in the slammer. however, his good behaviour and having learned English while in jail  gave him the good fortune of privileged day release ,whereupon he was able to earn approx 500 dollars a week after tax . after paying the prison authorities their share and a few bucks for personal comforts this guy was able to send home more than two hundred bucks per week to his tribe in Indonesia,  after several years his tribe had finalised the purchase of their family home with the donated dosh and lived happily ever after. it was also suggested  by his tribe he should extend his jail time. It was easy to understand why, because the judge who jailed the Corby person was only paid an annual salary equal to Aus$12,000-00 per annum..
It does not require much brain power to work that out.

Vale Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran,and all the the other unfortunate persons murdered by Indonesian Authorities today. May your souls enjoy the Afterlife..

The Drug Dealers of Budgewoi.

Budgewoi on the NSW Central Coast in Australia  would be described as a normally quiet beach side town/village  with a  majority of elderly or retired persons. Budgewoi has a  twin parade of shops and businesses covering all the requirements of our community of around 3,000 souls. This included until recently two Chemist shops.; one at the rear parade and the other facing  the front near scenic drive the main thoroughfare. In the main most of these businesses  display a easy on the eye unobtrusive frontage.  However, not any more
Well yank my doodle its a dandy not only am fed up with Crap American Films or Movies without captions and cheap non musical sounds drowning the non English verbals like "Barrb the Carp's Jarb is ter darb in rarbers and lark em in de Fart, Gard demmit.Yesterday I stopped by to purchase the weekly medications and Lo and behold before my disbelieving eyes there was this gaudy pink yellow anf blue coloured Asiatic looking frontage displaying the words The Budgewoi Discount Drug Store . YukYuk I thought this looks so cheap and nasty. but then  it transpires that the new owners  of the former nice chemist shop are from the orient which explains it all.
It would seem the town planners philosophy is to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

Over the years info is still coming in on this lurid story in the past. Today another comment.

This is a true account of my connection with David Bingham.

WE first met aboard ship where I had a brief Acquaintance with him, while being his instructor. David was a clever dick; knew every thing - cocky little sod, after I threatened him with a week in the slammer for insolence he quietened down,he was disliked by his classmates and myself in particular.
I having left the Royal Navy in 1966, about five years after flying into Hong Kong with Lt/Cdr R,T. a former antagonist in the Portland spy saga, then more than a decade had passed since the initial meeting with D B, before I did a cold call at David Binghams residence, seeing me he slammed the door on me. In another attempt to call a little later my senior management gave me an item for display to Mrs Bingham who apparently was a major spendthrift and she agreed to the arrangement. Unfortunately I was set up to do the delivery which found his nibs answering the door bell again. I was halfway in saying "This is yours nothing to pay" when D B said, "Stuff it up your ass you effing peasant". To my knowledge the item was never delivered or collected. However, at the time I did notice he was showing a degree of nervousness after I mentioned his present problem will soon see you doing time in the slammer. the incident was recorded and I personally mentioned the matter to a retired officer friend and of course my senior management, the time date was approx late 1970.
I later received official info from management not to go near or contact D B. there was a definite ring about it being a bit dodgy.
Early in 1971, I was bombarded with advice suggesting Australia was the best thing for my family, later my family and I decided to migrate to Australia, and we arrived Aug 4 1971. It was early in 1972 when I received a letter and press cuttings from Mr F---h my ex boos in Portsmouth England, with ref to D B's arrest for espionage.
I sent a letter of thanks but did not comment.
It was in 70's when writing to my Bro in law's - son in law who was a screw at the prison in Bisley, while there I sent D B a congratulatory message while serving his 21 years for espionage.
After early release D B was resettled in the midlands with a change of identity but was unfortunately killed in a road accident a little later.

David Bingham, Naval Spy.
Sub-Lieutenant David Bingham served, as a weapons electronics officer, aboard HMS Rothesay, a modified Type 12 Anti-Air Frigate, F107 commisioned on 23rd April 1960. David Bingham was aged 31 and was married with four children. Maureen Bingham, his wife, was a comfort shopper, a so-called 'shopoholic'. In addition to that she was also addicted to gambling. Sub-Lt Bingham's salary was not sufficiently high to finance his wifes' shopping and betting expeditions and this lack of finance almost certainly motivated Maureen to knock on the door of the Russian Embassy during a trip to London and offer the services of her husband to the KGB.

Whilst at the embassy she met with Russian Consular Officials who invited her to return sometime later to a Tea-Party under the cover of researching a book on "housewives of the world."

It was later disclosed that her husband, Sub-Lt Bingham, was ignorant of the methods used by his wife to secure further funding for her indulgences fired by her peculiar personality traits.

Maureen Bingham had photographed pages from an exercise book used by her husband for notes and deliberately induced 'camera shake' to ensure that the photographic content of the resultant prints were illegible. She was well aware that the 'intelligence' that she was supplying to the Russians was of no use at all and boasted later that she was 'taking them for a ride'.

The debts mounted as Maureen Bingham pursued her self-indulgent and excessive shopping. This expenditure coupled with the gambling debts led to her selling the family car without the knowledge of the Hire Purchase company who had financed purchase. This excessive behaviour led to subsequent arranged meetings with the Russian Naval Attache, Lory Turifmovich resulting in the Binghams receiving GBP 2800 for photographs left in a dead letter box.

Maureen Bingham later stated that David had never wanted to pursue this course and had gone along with her activities because there was no other choice, fearing for the safety of their four children.

Sub-Lt Bingham was terrified of what the eventual outcome of these actions would be, especially aware of the confidence trick being performed on the Russians by his wife.

It was obvious to David Bingham that the Russians knew that the photos supplied by Maureen were of no use whatsoever, but being aware of his position, he would be of use to them in the future. This fact was seen during the resultant court hearing at Bingham's trial, for espionage, when the court was told that one document supplied by Bingham was 'almost beyond price'.

Eventually Bingham was called to a meeting with the Russian handlers. The meeting took place in some woods. David Bingham had taken his son, Karl, with him and during the meeting Bingham told the Russians that he "had had enough" and that he "didn't care, not having a life". At this point a Russian placed a gun to Bingham's head and asked "What about your children's lives?"

On his return, and wishing to protect his children, Bingham approached a senior Officer and informed him of the spying activities. Unfortunately with David Bingham being of good character the officer refused to believe what he was hearing and David Bingham was forced to go and tell the Police. Sub-Lt Bingham was immediately arrested and thence formerly charged.

In 1972 the story of his treachery was printed in the newspapers and was described as 'being beyond belief'. Bingham himself was descibed as "the most despicable traitor in the history of post-war espionage". The defence counsel called the case "a story of almost incredible folly" whilst the court saw that David Bingham's confession read like "a badly written spy-novel - a lurid melodrama of secret assignations, signals that involved leaving empty packets of cigarettes in rural telephone boxes and posting church notices to addresses in Kensington".

At the time of the trial the Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath had authorised the expulsion of 105 Soviet diplomats and officials from Great Britain for espionage.

At Winchester Crown Court, David Bingham confessed to photographing naval documents and as a result was sentenced to imprisonment, a total of 126 years on 12 counts, to run concurrently, a sentence of 21 years.

After her husband's trial Maureen Bingham returned to the Russian embassy, with the Press, and declared that "it was all my fault" and that "the Russians were always very concerned about myself and our four children. They treated us better than the Royal Navy ever did".

Maureen Bingham was subsequently arrested and charged with offences under the Official Secrets Act. She was psychologically examined and the subsequent report stated that she was a pathological liar.

Maureen Bingham was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

During her trial the judge described her as "having opened the door" to her husband's spying activities. He went on to state that she was "a lady of almost disastrous loquacity".

With both parents serving gaol sentences the children were placed in care, moved between children's homes and foster parents for the rest of their childhood. David Bingham had secured his children's security at least. After serving only seven years of the original twenty one year sentence David Bingham was released from gaol.

He quietly settled down and rebuilt his life, changing his name to Brough and remarrying. Bingham (or Brough) ran a small hotel in Bournemouth, Sussex and also became the vice-president of the local Conservative Club. The members were probably unaware that he had previously spied for the Russians. He also opened an alternative healing centre in Stratford offering therapies at GBP 20 a session.

In February 1997 Bingham/Brough lost control of the car that he was driving, in Stratford-upon-Avon, crashing into a tree. Bingham/Brough died as a result of the accident, along with his dog, who was also present in the car. The crash occurred during severe gales which were sweeping the country. He was 56.

Its funny reading this as I knew both David and Maureen Bingham. My sister was married to their youngest son, for, well not very long. Knowing what Maureen was like doesn't surprise me that she was the one behind all of this. She has since been found guilty of benefit fraud and believe me in the few years that I knew her was very minipulative and on the take all of the time. As for David Bingham, he seemed like a nice man and changed his life after he got out of prison and, how do I put this politely dumped the wife! It was very sad when he had the accident, certainly for his family. Although as you can probably imagine, Maureen was the most distraught, so she says!

David Bingham was my father he wasn't a nice man he conned people till the day he died he didn't care about his children and would only show up if we we're of some use to him. My first husband nearly died in an accident and when he got wind of the fact we could be getting a large pay out he and my step mother turned up offering to help after years of ignoring me like a fool I thought he finally cared but within months realised he didn't he walked out my door never to return when I refused to give him money from my husbands compensation money for a car. He never cared about anyone but himself and conned a lot of people during his life and much more!

Wicked Royals (Uncensored,Do not read if you are a prude)








Camilla bought a new pair of shoes for her wedding which got increasingly tighter & tighter as the day went on.

That night after the festivities were finally over, she & Charles had retired to their room at the palace.

Camilla flopped on the bed and said 'Please remove my shoes darling, ones feet are killing one.'

Ever obedient, the Prince of Wales attacked her right shoe with vigour but it would not budge.

'Harder' yelled Camilla.

'Harder?' Charles yelled back, 'I'm trying darling! But it's just so bloody tight!'

'Come on give it all you've got ' she cried.

Finally when it released, Charles let out a big groan, and Camilla exclaimed 'Oh God, that feels so good.'

In their bedroom next door The Queen turned to Prince Phillip and said,

'See, I told you she would still be a virgin with a face like that!'

Meanwhile back in the other bedroom Charles was attempting to remove the other shoe when he cried out 'Oh god, darling this ones even tighter'

At which point Prince Phillip turned and said to the Queen:

'That's my boy, Once a Navy man, always a Navy man!
 
'ANON.'
