Communications Plus Precipitations and more.

.

          Although comments on this blog have been a bit sparse of late, relatives and friends have been in the minority this year. Those in Australia have contributed the most although fewer than the previous annual average.
However, comments from the U/K are dead on average for the year -  absolutely sod all !!
It seems that the citizens of Great Britain are becoming bored with the latest and cheapest form of communication, which is following the rapid demise of U/K Post Office communication. Nevertheless, the birthday and yuletide greetings are still holding firm, but in some cases one does not know that the recipient of your greeting card is still incumbent.
An absent or un reciprocated greeting can ring alarm bells which means in most cases the person incommunicado has a hole in his or her marble bag or has fallen from the perch, this scenario usually applies to aged persons. Those below three score and ten, the younger they are the worse the problem, most of their implausible excuses have been heard umpteen times before, but Bone idleness is the main culprit.
One Muslim youth who wrote an excuse stating he had been convicted of stealing and was to have his hand cut off, but should he win his appeal his frozen mitt would be sewn back on.
I replied, Hi Uday, sorry to hear of your predicament. make sure they don't cut off the hand you clean your ass with.
 Refer to 2nd comment in previous post. Today is a follow up of yesterday -  continuing wind and rain
        Does Mother Nature give  refunds because we want another summer - the one we just had didn't work properly.
New South Wales Australia suffered through its coldest, wettest Summer in years, with Sydney enjoying just one day when the temperature edged above 30C. torrential rain marked a fitting end to a miserable season.
Rain fell in Sydney's CBD on almost 50 days this so called Summer.
Central Coast of NSW where we live, on Thursday  the first day of Autumn or Fall, the local temp was 33C midday, but like yesterday today outside is 17C, overnight 12C - plus an extra blanket, whereas two days previous the Air con was running on full power.
The rule of thumb now is to expect the unexpected.
      The Cat with Kitten which was dumped on us four weeks ago has been granted citizenship, the Kitten was found a home with a friend. As a result of this new predator in our garden, there is a total absence of the two doz or so pigeons and mynah birds, although the Mexican standoff between the cat and magpie family erupted into war when the magpies chased the cat around the garden only ending when the cat escaped into the shrubbery. the cat is still available to a good home despite its friendly and loving disposition we really do not have the need of a mouse hunter and I am sure a younger family would be the better option for the cat.
        It has ceased raining for how long I have no Idea , however a walk in the garden away from this sedentary position would be more beneficial, and with lunch to follow a better prospect.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses  blooming outside our windows today.

Enjoy your weekend.... Back later....Vest.


          Just in...... Gerry from the mountains of blue, has discovered a new power for motor vehicles.
Gerry, a former sales person from the Magic Mile of  Motors is using his own  brand of 'HOT AIR' to power his ancient 'Holden Kingswood' This new power will shortly be available from govt bureacrats within Australia. However, should you  require Super Air, it can only be obtained in the Capitol Canberra........"Well I'm Blowed"....... Vest.

Good morning Les
Just to let you know i am still about. Here in Suffolk we are expecting rain today, it reminds of films wher there was a large fire and all the villiages gather round and pray and it rains. Herein my garden in Suffolk we have had 1 inch of rain in2012. In the east of england we have had less rain than in the middle east our reservoirs are at there lowest since 1976. We have been told we might get an inch of rain today. There is talk of piping from Scotland. heard that before. The local council are talking about building two thousand more houses. They have the land, but where is the water for another 4000 people.
Got that off my chest, Best Wishes edward jones 183.
