Hang them High and Lower Costs

    So many businesses going off shore, people complaining about job losses, the catalyst being the result of high wages and high demand for items the hoipoloi cannot afford, theft and drugs meaning  higher insurance premiums more coppers on the beat, and to clean up the mess and hide the problem by incarcerating our crims we need prison officers and blood sucking lawyers to add to the general cost of living, there are other factors which unnecessarily jack up our outgoings but those mentioned can serve the purpose for the moment and here is one job export which would clean up the place.and send a few ambulance chasers broke unless they moved off shore to chase the lower paid jobs, (in this case defence lawyers in Singapore and Malaysia with sod all hope of winning drug related cases
My suggestion is that, the Australian Govt reach a bipartisan agreement with the Singaporean Or Malaysian Govt or both and have all drug related offences from Australia proven in Australian lower courts transferred to those in Singapore or Malaysia, who still abide by inherited British and Australian laws in most situations.
The Singapore & Malaysian justice system would be much cheaper overall, taking in consideration their lower wage structure, speedier sentencing and lower cost of fewer detainees, their draconian laws allowing maximum penalties to be approved meaning the absence  of the Lazarus thingy, no second chances.
People arriving in Australia who are apprehended carrying miscellaneous drugs of varying amounts usually cop a seven year sentence, which usually terminates earlier than the prescribed sentence, These people only get caught occasionaly, meaning the other profitable occasions created misery for drug users and the general public and a rise in the cost of living created usually by theft.
The main problem passing any legislation to bring this idea to fruition is the baulking influence of the main users, our peers, Politicians, lawyers and big business icons and  the Crooks that keep them in power.

If you are a druggy, watch out or one day you may have a dangling good weekend.
And for all you nice people and young lovers have an enjoyable weekend.

DEROGATORY DOCS GIVE FACEBOOK A DOSE OF DODGY DETAILS. Plus a firm grip and some sadness.

The NSW Australia Medical board has cautioned  doctors for making flippant and derogatory comments on
various social networking sites.
Doctors have been disclosing sensitive medical information and even ridiculing their patients on Face book. One doctor who came to the notice of the Medical Board has been warned that, taking the mickey out of patients and discussing their details is not secure and can cause serious consequences for the perpetrators
The usual rules about confidentiality apply. After a disgruntled patient read nasty comments made by one doctor on Face book the board issued a general warning. 'Watch it doc'.

.....Having a firm grip on living.
It is often seen as a sign of confidence but a firm handshake may also mean you will have a long life, although that is where it stops unless some eccleslastical dispensation has given you your ticket to harp land.
Men and women with a strong grip tend to outlive those whose handshakes brush not crush.
It is a fact that, the meek and weak hardly get a peek and it is the strong who will inhabit the earth.

.....In the name of the father. and freedom of choice.
Some people say an Atheist is a person without religion; but the dictionary defines an atheist who denies the existence of a God.
Nevertheless,religion too is a form of atheism. It indoctrinates people into replacing the supreme intelligence that is beyond our comprehension with a paradoxical humanised version - a male with human emotions, a sort of Big Daddy with an astronomical ego that requires followers from all branches of the faith industry to continually pray,praise and grovel before him, begging for protection and favours that usually fall on deaf ears.
At the same time, this big daddy god, if he exists must need some time to him self;  like sleep, when your wishes are ignored or deliberately turns his prayer cell-mobile phone off or when an impossible prayer is sent to him to deal with.
At the same time, this same God - Big daddy bloke is regarded as so fragile that man is expected to defend and protect him by slaughtering anyone who shows even lighthearted disrespect towards him, his saints , prophets or disciples.
Was there ever a time when religion brought peace, tolerance and goodwill into our world?

......Brief sad life.
For some stories, words are simply insufficient. The tragic death of baby Lucy schollbach, orphaned one week ago when her adoring parents were killed in a horrific car accident, is beyond description, her passing a few days after was a moment of utter sadness. For little ones like Lucy, even the most flint hearted non - believer must be wishing that there is an afterlife.
 Eventually at the end of my time, my lot  will be a Christian Burial to appease the family. a sort of each-way bet I suppose. However, I am not yet ready to go, Back soon. Vest DailyGaggle.com

The Wedding Washup,.... No. Truth Spared.

It took 27 hours from here and back again,, stayed overnight at our son David and his partner Mandys residence and enjoyed a superb breakfast.
The remainder of our time included nine hours socialising Wedding - Church - Reception.
Driving took up 4.5 hours approx. Two hour breakfast. One hour chatting an old friend the Grandfather of the bride.
The rest of the was spent either sleeping or on the toilet.
Trying to explain the complex issue of who was related to who would not be less complicated than a centrally isolated Tasmanian rural community register.
Inside of the chuch,. In front of me from left to right, stood Tony my 2nd eldest son father of the bride, then Gegory the husband of Tonys 2nd wife Suzanne. Suzanne the mother of the bride was stood next to Tonys third wife Rebecca. the senior matron of honour was Kylie, who is Tony's eldest daughter from his first marriage with Karen. Kylie's partner is paul (in lower case) the father of three of her four children.
Would you like me to continue? It can become quite complicated by reaching the bottom line.
Like most weddings and family reunions lots of  dunny stirring under the  psuedo smiles, however all went well on the surface, no punchups or difficult scenes.
I am not sure who footed the bill for 125 guests at $150.. bucks a head at the Sebal in Windsor NSW,  possibly Tony the father of the bride. myself being the father of five sons I made certain it was not my priviledge.
It is a lovely spring day 23deg, spent most of morning in scungy gear pottering in garden away from the complicities of life, and now it is lunchtime and time to leave, maybe photo's soon.

May the forthcoming week bring you much joy and happiness.  Vest. dailygaggle.com

SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!

You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well.........

Oh, there's MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe!

Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.

The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who'd like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dog s off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand.

He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 - $8 for the holidays and plant it later. We have six trees in our yard from the prison.

Yup, he was re-elected last year with 83% of the vote.

Now he's in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He's kind of a 'Git-R Dun' kind of Sheriff.

TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO..
HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF.

AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER.

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona ) who created the 'Tent City Jail':

**He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

**He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. **Took away their weights.

**Cut off all but 'G' movies.

**He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

**Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.

**He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails, so he hooked up the cable TV again.....BUT only let in the Disney channel and the Weather channel..

**When asked why the weather channel, he replied, "So they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs."
**He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.

**When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't The Ritz/Carlton...... If you don't like it, don't come back."

More On The Arizona Sheriff:
With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports:

About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before.
Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their PINK SOCKS.

"It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the TENTS for 1 year. "It's inhumane."

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic... He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates, "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your mouths!"

Way to go, Sheriff!
Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers' money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

Another good man bites the dust..... Wedding speeches can be fatal..

After a few days of popping in and out of hospital clashes with the medical profession plus my eldest sons medical dilemma's, waiting long hours at hospitals plus sleep deprivation and to join the confusion RTA (MOT) tests plus rego & insurance on two family cars and renewing banking arrangements , today saw myself yawning and with bleary eyes getting things ready for the trip 180klms down the coast for our number two granddaughters wedding, Nicole Suzanne Coral Pamela Rosemary 24 will marry her long known friend, Mitchel Lalor.. Fortunately I do not have to make a speech and alienate people in doing so, in the past my wedding speeches have failed to impress, particularly the Knowitalls who rarely make it beyond the seven year itch or earlier. Unfortunately my eldest son is too ill to attend this very lavish do, he will be holding the fort here with the help of  other friendly .locals. Rosemary will be taking pics of the wedding etc . Sorry But I am finding it hard to keep my eyes from closing, I really must get some sleep, a good nine hours.
Hope to be back on line Monday.

VERY IMPORTANT FOR DIABETICS PATIENTS and others using Sweeteners.

SWEET POISON! A MUST READ!

ANON Writes. In October 2001 my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around.. Walking was a major chore...It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.
By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.
She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc...in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.
She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.
On March 19 I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS.
I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.
I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda! I e-mailed her article my friend, a lawyer, had sent. My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk!
The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.
Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed! He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind. In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by t he Aspartame in the diet soda...and literally dying a slow and miserable death.
When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning! She is well on her way to a complete recovery. And she is walking! No wheelchair!
This article saved her life. If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,' marketed as 'Nutra Sweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful.'
In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States , in 2001, there was an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.
I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject. I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous:
When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis... Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.
Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!
Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.
The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.
In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.
This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, Cramps, Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitis, Joint pain, Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!'
People were jumping up during the lecture saying, 'I have some of these symptoms..
Is it reversible?' Yes! Yes! Yes! STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels!
Many products are fortified with it! This is a serious problem. Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice; a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!
Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.
It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!
These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.
Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.'
Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!
Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the 'diet products' and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.
Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.
We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control.
Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.
Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.
Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, Seizures, Depression, Manic depression, Panic attacks, Uncontrollable anger and rage.
Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.
So called 'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed.
Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place!
Most of these children were being 'poisoned' on a daily basis with the very foods that were 'better for them than sugar.'
It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well known Gulf War Syndrome.
Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e., mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.
Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.
There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.'

Herein lies the problem:

There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.

Sadly, MONSANTO'S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED! There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced..
Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie.'
I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.
And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?

This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.
The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.

The bill was killed.
It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now!

Is Your Doctor Keeping Up With Current Research - or an out of touch Quack?

Is Your Doctor Keeping Up With Current Research?

Is Your Doctor Up-to-Date?

Many doctors are unaware of the massive amount of recent research that is far beyond anything taught in medical training. The care you receive from your doctor is at least 40 years behind what is being learned in thousands of scientific laboratories around the world.
When you come face to face with your doctor in the examining room, you should keep in mind that he or she may be behind the times. There are many important facts based on up-to-date information you should consider Some patients appear to have great difficulty getting over common viral infections, or they have repeated viral infections. The common explanation is that their immunity is low, and if a vaccine is available, they should have regular vaccinations.

While it is true that many people, especially the elderly and those with chronic diseases, have poor immune function, one of the hidden causes is an undiagnosed, underlying bacterial, parasitic, or fungal infection, these are mystery diseases that baffle your doctor."
 Calcium Is a Double-Edged Sword.
Too little or too much calcium in the body is bad. As we begin to age, our cells begin to lose some of their ability to control the amount of calcium in our cells and this can disrupt a number of important cell processes. Excess cellular calcium has been associated with many diseases including cancer, strokes, heart disease, and diabetes.
Osteoporosis is not caused by calcium deficiency. Instead, it is caused by a vitamin D-3 deficiency in developed countries. This info has recently caught on due to the diminishing access to the common calcium tablet in our local pharmacies.
Now regarding the capabilities of your local Physician. have you studied your local GP lately does he dither over certain health issues,or are you uncertain his prognosis is correct due to your ongoing problem being unresolved. well the obvious answer to a layman like myself is, he is simply the old Dog incapable of learning new tricks, dogmatic yes, and his set in stone remedies of yesteryear needing updating either by his re education or his replacement.
Recently I have been given information in good faith by two relatives whom I would trust implicatively. One week ago the the male relative and his mother attended the local GP's Surgery(Rooms) the male relative complaining of a debilitating problem causing a great deal of pain and suffering. note. the male person had attended the same GP's  surgery for over ten years but not too frequently, the local patient turnover being  fairly large, but what happened next was a shocker . Apparently the Doctor gave the male patient the impression he did not know him and without consulting his records told him I have no records of you(Which was untrue) the male patient replied you must have I have been coming here for over ten years, whereupon the Doctor chucked a wobbly waving his arms and face distorted shouting "I have no  records of you".
Both patient and mother left quickly without more ado and consulted Another doctor 15 klms distant, who wanted to know about his previous doctor. Having explained the fracas recently occurring. the Doc replied, Oh he is a great physician, but more than likely he will forget the incident if you return to him tomorrow although the attending Doc had not seen him recently when asked.
The male patient received the usual Antibiotic cure-all remedy to hurry  the process which only served to exacerbate his dilemma. The male patient is now stable and has been under scrutiny at the local hospital for the past five days.
More later. ....Have a healthy day,  Vest Daily Gaggle.

Thank you Jane, Debbie, and  Christine for the 'Get Well' wishes for your cousin.

The No. 1 Question Your Doctor Should Always Ask You .

 The No. 1 Question Your Doctor Should Always Ask You . . .
"How Much Water Do You Drink on a Daily Basis?"
And Why Your Answer Could Mean the Difference Between a Lifetime of Optimal Health — or Chronic Disease.
Think about it do you really need some quack or medico to stretch the point you are not drinking enough water? of course most of you don't, however you are not doing your self any favours  by ignoring the fact that your future health is factored in by the amount of water you drink daily.
During the past fifteen years my average intake of  inexpensive clean filtered-boiled and refrigerated tap water being around two litres or  over three pints per day, thus counteracting the social sludge I slurp into my body from the stuff I enjoy, such as tea sugar dairy products Johnny Walker C/Cola and a rare coffee. also muck that hangs around In my system from a heap of other miscellaneous additives found in the crap we  call food.
Can you imagine a back yard swimming pool 30x15x5ft equalling nearly 64,000 litre's.  If you drank two litres of it each day it would take you seventy five years to empty it and start drinking one third of your neighbours pool by the the time you received your birthday wishes from the Queen when finally hitting a ton.
Although feeling weary occasionally but mentally fit and still able to enjoy life and reflect back on the extra good times you enjoyed in your twilight years.
Your life extends beyond the norm and are still getting around courtesy of your zimmer frame or motorised cart. You visit the last resting places of friends and rello's long forgotten who played with you in the school play ground. Those not incinerated and buried in their local cemetery's are difficult to .locate due to the weathering of their markers over the years but your acute brain still functioning well is able to locate the remains of your old pals who drank and smoked their way into oblivion a quarter of a century back before you reached the end of your shagging days.
Monitoring the habits of people I have known for time immemorial one person in particular and a person I have known since I was about seventeen on my first R N Ship and four years my senior was not of great stature but well adjusted polite knowledgeable and non smoking and an abstenee from the daily eighth of a pint of neat rum, which I and others considered was the catalyst for dumbing down the lesser mortals  on RN Ships during my time in particular, the person in question is still around and now approaching eighty -eight years of age, is fit as a fiddle communicates with me regularly and continues each year to turn up for the long ANZAC day march in Sydney, drinks lots of water doesn't drink or smoke and drives still, I expect he will be around much longer than I shall ever be, then again one cannot discount the prospects of a cock up when crossing the road or bitten by a snake behind the back shed while moving a flower pot, also the other great Aussie terminators the red back om the dunny seat and worst of all a funnel web spider in your budgie smugglers, However if you have stuck to the rules and led a healthy life your strong constitution  could be your saviour when seeking antidotal treatment.
A case in point was made clear today by a close associate who is an avid coffee drinker -smoker and also one who leads a sedentary life and rarely if ever drinks water or eats fruit and is lacking normal exercise, I feel sad for him in his Hospital bed, mind you his predicament was helped on by a prick of a Quack prescribing the wrong treatment, we all hope he is well soon.

Have a great weekend , Give me a call, Vest........Back soon.

The Big Bang. and other News snippets. Plus Old Timers again, and Fidel.

Challenging traditional religious beliefs, the laws of physics were behind the big bang. because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.
Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.
It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going. This theory opposes Isaac Newtons belief the universe must have been designed by God as it could not have materialised out of chaos.

.............Vitamin pill to stop Alzheimer's the Old timer disease.
A cheap, simple vitamin pill could stop millions  suffering Alzheimer's disease.
The tablet made up of three vit B supplements, cut brain shrinkage linked to memory loss by up to 500 per cent.the vitamin B breaks down homo-cysteine, a body compound linked to memory loss and Alzheimer's.
However my concern is the 'Up to ' figure, anything from next to nothing to rebirth. seems possible.

..............Aussie generosity on top of the world.
Our reputation as kind - hearted Aussies is true, a survey has revealed.
Australia shared first place with New Zealand in a survey ranking 153 nations on their willingness to donate time and money.
China ranked near the bottom, barely higher than last placed Madagascar.
The USA with the bulk of European countries was in the middle.

.............Scale of justice.
The NSW Department of Industry has banned the swallowing and regurgitation of live Goldfish.
   Nobody better tell the department about another widespread practice involving fish.
We have it on good authority that fish are sometimes hauled from the ocean with cruel steel barbs, then brutally executed. Next, the the innocent sea beasts are sliced apart and their flesh cooked in metal pots. The barbarity concludes when the corpse is devoured by hungry humans.
  These fish never come back alive. If the NSW Department of Industry ever hears about it, the prosecutions will go on for ever.

.............Playful Coppers frolic in the Nude.
Sex er sorry Six elite police officers caught in an off duty sex romp on a public road have been disciplined, but it is unclear if they will rejoin their unit.
The six Queensland officers from the Special Emergency Response team were traveling back from a 'Bucks Party' in Brisbane in Sept last year about 4.15 am when five of them were seen running  naked around their police minibus.
A police statement said the six coppers had received internal sanctions and had four days to appeal.
I am uncertain what  an internal sanction is. Could it be an  agreed penetration whilst frolicking in the bollocky.

.............Here in Cuba with Fidel.
 Like me he has recently celebrated his 4th twenty first Birthday.

Hidden Dementia. Stop its advance, choice of mental activity? plenty of them.

Communicating regularly with a partner a friend or relative in an active manner  such as playing board games requiring the thought processes  such as Draughts (checkers) Chess, UNO, Scrabble and crosswords are but a few of the activities available for persons old and young with time on their hands, even reading the news papers help you stay on track with what is really or supposedly happening around you and the rest of the world.
Older people have their memories and love to converse with the younger set, some of it may be a trifle muddled then again what historical events aren't a a bit askew. History unfolds the main mistakes made by our forbears and that considered taboo in this mod world, although our politicians worldwide continue to  make the same mistakes of the past.
It is pitiful to see elderly persons staring out in space while sitting in the old rocking chair or the like, unable to recognize the beautiful flowers in the garden which they planted a couple of years back. Most cases like this could have been so different if earlier they had chosen the options to stimulate their brain cells by becoming  more active and useful in their surroundings earlier in their lives.
In our  own personal lives my 76 year and betrothed  57 years and I;  having recently celebrated my Fourth 21st birthday, share all the chores of the household. Every thing except fixing difficult computer problems, that is left to our eldest son Chris (Mr clever dick)Although most of the gardening is my world in which  a bountiful supply of flowers and veggies (Thrive) watch out for the advert to appear soon, wouldn't surprise me.
Doing Crossword puzzles and other mentally stimulating pursuits may hide rather than prevent the progress of OLD TIMERS aka  Alzheimer's disease. Evidence suggests that keeping the brain active, by reading, listening to the radio or doing puzzles can delay the onset of dementia.
But the reality could be that, even without symptoms, our brains are suffering progressive damage  behind the scenes, the big problem is when the symptom of old timers do appear the disease  may be further advanced than expected.

Cricket Lovely Cricket. Plus a bit of uncomplimentary Stirring.

Cricket lovely Cricket has nothing to do with the 1950 song created by the West Indies team when they thrashed England for the first time, Remember the last line of the song? "Those two very good friends of mine Ramadin and Valentine.
In Sonny Ramadin and Alf Valentine's days  cricket was the gentleman's game, sadly it has degenerated due to the fast moving society of today and newcomers to the game bending the multitude of rules & and regs for them to suit their nefarious activities.  Dodgy umpiring was the first to go when the ICC decided  neutral umpires would replace the local  umpires. The sub Continent teams,particularly Pakistan were prone to skulduggery, Example being Javed Miandad only getting out LBW twice In Ten years play within Pakistan but twenty fold elsewhere. Mind you the Australians without the present day technology got away with scores of dodgy Lillee & and Thompson to Marsh caught behinds,  helped by as suggested by English players patriotic Aussie Umpiring.  Cheating if possible is rife among cricketers those who deny it are those who probably engage in it. The most recent  turbulence on the cricket dodgy dealing  scene stood out like a sore thumb on film,and eventually caught  three Pakistani players red handed.  Although the first ODI is scheduled to start at midnight OZ time it is a doubtful starter due the to the previous furore.
However I'll liven up my post with a little bit of jollity.

The list of excuses for losing the game goes on and on. The whingeing and whining, piss taking, uncomplimentary remarks and pseudo friendliness plus all the hate, racial taunts and unequal conditions; especially for the losers all add up to a quagmire of confusion.

Soon to follow, a list of unsavoury remarks, can stirring and general complaints. I have received.
However, I shall liven up the proceedings with a little tale about Billy.

Billy was at school this morning and the teacher asked all of the children what there father did for a living. All the typical answers came out, Such as firemen, policemen, Salesman and carpenter etc, but Billy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father.
Billy stated that his father was an exotic dancer in a gay club and takes off all of his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes if the offer is really good, he’ll go out with a man, rent a cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him. The teacher took Billy aside to ask him if that was really true.
“No” said Billy. ”He plays Cricket for England but I was too embarrassed to say.”

The stirring continues.
Commentators are. psychic: and explain to listeners exactly how a player is thinking and what he is about to do, Then a roar from the crowd as the batsman belts the ball for six and the Comment jocks prediction cock up is lost in the confusion.
Shane the womaniser and former drug cheat was the OZ best bowler, especially when there was a farting great hole in the pitch to toss the ball into..
Shane and Gilly are in love,

Cricket ‘Hero’s, Nah, they aint mate, they don’t put their life on the line, The game is now theatrical, and they are simply well paid icons.
The Oz golliwog, formerly from the UK and the black and white minstrel show, uses his lip salve to polish the shiny side of the ball, if not why does he wear lip cream when the sun aint shining.
Warney’s dress code is frightfully scungy; he rarely looks clean and appears to look like a sack of shite tied around the middle.
Yeah your right, Being a digger I feel ashamed the Aussie test team looked so shabby with their general appearance, unshaven, gum chewing, gob spitting also crutch scratching, nose picking uncontrollable loud mouthing. is why the bastards win so often, they probably wear ribbed rubbers to get more traction in the mud!.
Bing Lee the fast bowling weetbix muncher’s hateful air punching antics, does not set a good example to the younger people in the audience, they will have plenty of time in their lives to become hateful later.
Has anyone seen an Indigenous Australian true blue not in part(Aborigine) Play in a Aussie test team?.
Nah, it’s a white boy’s game played mostly By Micks. There seems to be an abundance of blokes with given names like Paul, Steven, Michael, Gregory, Mark, Kevin, guys with saints names seem to dominate the list, the products from Priv/Catho Schooling and privilege.
Aussie commentators rarely compliment the visiting team, their one eyed chatter regarding decisions by the umpires can be very annoying, taking the piss out of the visitors and referring to it as bad play, while a crappy Oz player is described as having some bad luck.
Billy Bowden  a N Z umpire becomes an honorary Aussie citizen when England plays Australia.
It’s a fact I have been told, that, 75 % of Warne’s wickets. Are nines, tens, and jacks.
Body contact cuddling and kissing on the field of play is rife in Strayer mate, if you are a bum boy its rewarding , seems the more guys you get out the more often you get kissed..
The Daily Telegraph, my favourite news paper, delivered daily to my door is the best source of bigotry when you find the need to dislike the cricketing visitors, Journo’s like Jon Pierik (pronounced Prick) and his colleague Fanny Craddock, These two strayer bludgery galahs are great when it comes to stirring the bilges of the cricket world, the ‘Pom’ word they use in a derogatory manner, is distasteful.. In any case the first geezer J P; seems to have a greasy wop or wog name.
Do you remember Kim Hughes an ex Aussie cricket captain bawling his eyes out when he lost a test match and the then Prime Minister Bob Hawke crying too. Bob then allowed Keppler Wessells a springbok opener to be given instant OZ citizenship to play up and play the game for Ozstrayer.
Ah “Lest We Forget” The nasty episode of Bad loser syndrome which reared its ugly head in Feb 1 1981, Greg Chappell the OZ cricket Capt., was the architect of this dastardly plot aimed at preventing the New Zealand team from having a fair chance of winning the game in question. Greg ordered his sibling Trevor to bowl the last ball under arm, to batsman Brian McKechnie, which resulted in a dodgy win for the ugly Aussies. This created a short break in diplomatic relations between the Prime Ministers Bob Hawke and the Late N Z, Prime Minister Piggy Muldoon.
[Go to Google- type- Underarm cricket ball. View a 23 second video of this shameful episode of Aussie cricket history.
Why do we have to see our short arsed bald bonce wanker of an ex Prime Miniture spouting gushing commentary compliments to the Oz team on the telly. This prick and famous chicken hawk,(Draft Dodger) is paid barrow loads of dosh to run this banana republic.

***Australia’s highest cricket test score against England was what? Yes it was an innings and heap of runs but how many? Google will not provide an answer.

I wonder how many of us Aussies wish to remember the saga of Rodney Hogg and the Pakistanis. This grand display of Aussie sporting behaviour hit a high, when a Pakistani fielder threw down Rodney’s wicket and told the umpire Rodney had not grounded his bat on completion of a run despite being back within the crease but dabbing his bat (gardening) outside of the crease. Rodney looked at the umpire who put his finger up saying “Out” A disgruntled Rodney was heading for the pavilion when Asif Iqbal the Paki Capt say’s “ Return to the crease it was a misunderstanding” A smiling Rodney returns to the crease to be told by the umpire that the Paki captain was not the umpire “You are out “. At that point Rodney’s mouth exploded and he then smashed down the stumps. Did the press give him some stick? A cartoon showing Rodney as a young dishevelled street Cricketer saying, “Stick yer ball I’m taking me bat ome”
And Dennis Lilley was not averse to using his bat as weapon, on the opposing team,
Lilley-Marsh Catches, real dodgy they were.

***Well the answer is, it ain’t as big as the England score against Australia mate, it is something us Aussies or some of us don’t want to remember. Vest remembers this test match as a twelve year old, played August 20-24 in 1938, the scores were.
England, 903 for seven declared. Australia, 201 and 123, English gents (Poms) beat the shit out of the Aussies. (Bludgers) By an innings and 579 runs. This matter is rarely mentioned in Australian cricket history.

The English cricket season lasts for three and a half months; during which it pisses down with rain for a third of the time. In Australia we have a sunny seven month cricket season. The weather conditions for the remainder of the year are far better than the English cricket season.. During the off season in OZ our greedy Oz cricketers trot off to England to play for English teams, thereby robbing English youngsters to play the game, its all money money money. The question arises, do fit English sporty persons want to play cricket when the earner is far greater for playing in the football codes for nine months of the year.

Australia is without doubt the ‘Lucky Country’.
Let us not kid ourselves that Australians are superhuman with a genetic makeup entirely different from other people in our world. The vast majority of us enjoy living conditions that are far and beyond better than most other countries.
We Australians have a head start when it comes to the opportunity to become proficient in outdoor sporting activities, it is without doubt we have the best climatic conditions in the World, although the U S A has a fairly good climate, It also has a huge population to choose their best sports persons from, and will always dominate because of this factor. Cash strapped; so called third world countries unfortunately rarely compete with their maximum talent.
European countries are basically into cold climate activities, such as (Association football or soccer), Rugby league, and Rugby and snow ice and above water sports. The adverse weather conditions are off-putting to prospective sports persons.
Getting out of a warm bed on a freezing cold morning about one third of the year. Treading gingerly across the cold floor even in summer and hoping summer will be on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday instead of the usual Monday or Tuesday does put a damper on out door activities when dressed in restricting volumes of warm clothing , hardly weather for cycling or swimming or even taking the dog for a walk.

Remember the truth is always more important than bending the facts to fit your own personal theory. But it is unfortunate that, not everybody shares that opinion.
