The Queens Birthday, Today. And other happenings to follow.

Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth The second , turns 85 today 21st April 2011.
This no doubt will confuse many colonials  who celebrate her birthday at umpteen other dates..

My local  Bank The 'St George Bank', were confused  a couple of years back when I sent them a "Happy St Georges day" greeting on April 23rd.....St George being the patron Saint of England.

Tomorrow is good Friday. Among other things like hot cross buns and the pubs closing early, it is a time when Fishmongers increase their prices by one hundred per cent.

Saturday will be when the more Pius people (with lots of loot)will deem it suitable to attend the Royal Easter show in Sydney.

Easter Monday the 25th April will coincide with ANZAC Day. Australia and New Zealand Equivalent to that of  The U/K's Remembrance Day (nearest Sunday to Nov 11,) and Americas Memorial day, The last Monday in May,?

Up to now I have no plans for Anzac Day, It seems most of my remaining five - older associates, older   than my 84.75 years are far too wobbly to attend the ceremonies and that which follows,  A twelve hour  traditional booze up and its consequential results. However, Tuesday will be a public holiday, no specific title but temporarily,  we could refer to it as recovery day.

Happy Easter Everyone....from Rosemary Myself and Family.... Back soon.

Father forgive dem
for they not what they do ..

As the rain pours
On a cold and gray Mumbai mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries

'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man
and join Al Qaeda some day

Take a look at you and me,
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Father forgive them
for they know not what they do Lord

So the world turns
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
so he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns how to steal
and he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
a young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
on a cold and gray Mumbai mornin',
another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

PS: INDIA houses the richest of the rich ( Mukesh and Anil Ambani)
and the poorest of the poor

that moved Mother Theresa
