I'll never understand this global warming thingy.

Down in the South Pacific Lies the land of Oz. Nowt to do with the Judy Garland's 1939 wizard of Oz movie, however, we do have heaps of yellow dust roads just as bumpy as brick ones. As for wizards in oz, we have an over supply drawn mostly from the ranks of failed lawyers, who now pose as leaders of the community. Besides being a country made up seven states, Oz is also a Continent which colloquially speaking occasionally becomes 'Incontinent' due to the diverse weather patterns. Oz is an upside down Country, where Christmas comes during the height of summer when locals get it off instead of rugging up. Our hot winds come from the North; so a southerly wind during the festive season can be a blessing.
Officially, today is the first day of summer in Oz, I live on the beautiful Central Coast 120klm North of Sydney in New South Wales on the Pacific Ocean. Last night we required an extra blanket at 2..AM and the temp was 11 Cel at 8..AM. It is now 1030..AM and we have an outside temp of 16 Cel, It is completely overcast and we are having intermittent rain continuing from midday yesterday. tomorrow could be a different kettle of fish probably not unlike eight days ago when we sweltered in temperatures ranging up to 46 Cel when I wore shorts and a singlet but right now a fleece top and track pants.

Checking the car tyres before going shopping yesterday revealed a large nail and a flat rear tyre, all fixed now but a nuisance having got cleaned up to go out and it was piddling down.

I may be going visiting this weekend it is unlikely more will be posted until next week, then again I may change my mind ( am I allowed to do that)I'll ask her indoors.

Everyone have a pleasant week. Back soon Vest.

After its coldest October in 17 years, Sydney Australia, has now had its hottest November in a century and a half.
There was no relief when the sun set-the average overnight temperature was 19C, three degrees up on normal and the hottest since records began. The highest overnight temps reached 26C the hottest in 52 years.
Yesterday our first day of Summer,Dec 1, From Midnight to noon 11C to 22C and again last night it was similar and now Dec 2at 11AM it is 19C.

You figure I can't.

Police kill JESUS.

USA. Police are in the awkward situation of having to admit they killed Jesus after they shot and killed the Rottweiler-Pittbull cross called Jesus which had attacked his owner in Rockville, Maryland.

It was blazing hot and the did nothing but drink beer, and most are on the dole.

THE TALKING DOG.



A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in
front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale ' He
rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the
backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador
retriever sitting there.


'You talk?' he asks.


'Yep,' the Lab replies.



After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says
'So, what's your story?'
The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I
was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.
In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting
in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog
would be eavesdropping.'
'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But
the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any
younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the
airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious
characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and
was awarded a batch of medals.' 'I got married, had a mess of puppies,
and now I'm just retired.'

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for
the dog.


'Ten dollars,' the guy says..


'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so
cheap?'

'Because he's a liar. He never did any of that s ** t.

Wally: At least some of your rello's have tried hard and made a go of it where a small minority are quite happy with stoneage lifestyles.
We didn't visit this W/E, we have visitors.

Vest said...

Frank: Seems like the the weather post has turned into a shaggy dog story session.

Amy from Swansea. said...

Was once in New York for St Patricka day March 17. I arrived at Penn/station 33rd St from New London, Conn Sub/Base. 125 miles North. Left two days later from Grand/Central, arrived back still stoned from drinking green beer and other things.

Jimmy said...

YOU THINK YOU KNOW, BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA. THIS IS A DAY BY DAY LOOK AT THE LIFE OF ROSEMARY.....

CAN YOU HANDLE THE PANDEMONIUM?

Rosemary said...

Jimmy, your unqualified remark does not relate to the peace and serenity which we enjoy in our household, the only remarks of an savoury nature are those I have heard from Hubby( watching the test match) with regard to the unkempt appearance of teste scratching and nosepicking and spitting australian cricket turd Rik Pong Ting, is he a slopehead? sure does have slant eyes.

Jimmy said...

peace and serenity ?


reminds me of the grave yard
when I visit my dad there



dont think he likes it there
