A bit of History er My story- Plus tax and stuff.

On a Wednesday Jan 7 1942, LJB aka Vest; weighing in at 42kg, a 4ft eleven inch fifteen year and five month old piece of human cannon fodder was presented to the British Royal Navy by the Watts Naval School (Barnardo's). for a (Finder's Fee) of Twenty five pounds Sterling -.an unaccountable backhander. Chapter 13 My first career. From my memoirs WGTATF. Click on the pic top of page.

Read in today's Sydney Daily Telegraph (delivered daily to my door) that food prices in Australia had plummeted. over the past year., apart from fish with an increase of 0.9 % and eggs 3.3%. The main decrease in food prices are attributed to Vegetables falling in price by 9.9% , Lamb by 5.7% and Poultry by 4.3 % ...it seems we are now leading the western world in the lower food price game... However, from my own observations, buying veggies from the local greengrocer to the big veggie shops in large retail centres., I am being frequently asked the same question by the checkout person when having paid my bill, "Would you like a receipt sir"... That statement will conjure up the possibility that the transaction is not being recorded for purposes of Taxation. and obviously there must be others being asked the same question. One thing springs to mind that there is 'No sale" on items being sold and being written off illegally as spoilt and unsaleable. Or do you think I am being cynical... However, I believe it is far better to grow your own if you have time to spare and are not blessed with unlimited resources... Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap... but the seeds you plant... Vest... Back soon.

Seems everyone is too busy to call here, either too cold or too hot. Here in Budgewoi NSW Oz the max in the shade by my back shed was closing on 49C on three different thermometers.
People overseas Google Sydney Daily Telegraph for the latest news on arsonists and bushfires.

Here we have a few funnies sent in by a rascist nephew living in England.




I came out of the chip shop with a meat and potato pie, large chips,
mushy peas & a jumbo sausage. A poor homeless man sitting there said "I've
not eaten for two days." I told him "I wish I had your will power.."


I took my Biology exam last Friday.. I was asked to name two things
commonly found in cells. Apparently "Young Blacks" and "Romanian Gypos"
were not the correct answers.


A fat girl served me in McDonald's at lunch time today. She said "sorry
about the wait." I said "don't worry dear, you might lose it eventually.
"I walked past a black kid sitting at a bus stop as I went into the bank.
When I came out, he looked at me and said "Any change?" I said "No,
you're still black".


Snow in the forecast! The TV weather girl said she was expecting 8 inches
tonight.I thought to myself, fat chance with a face like that!


An Irish boy stands crying at the side of the road. A man asks him
"What's wrong?" The boy says "Me ma is dead". "Oh bejaysus" the man says
"Do you want me to call Father O' Riley for you ?"The boy replies "No
tanks mister, sex is the last ting on my mind at the moment."


Years ago it was suggested that an apple a day kept the doctor away. But
since all the doctors are now Muslims, I've found that a bacon sandwich
works better !


Japanese scientists have created a camera with such an immensely fast
shutter speed that it is now possible to take a photograph of a woman with
her mouth shut.



I hate all this terrorist business. I used to love the days when you could
look at an unattended bag on a train or bus and think to yourself .......
I'm going to have that.


Man in a hot air balloon is lost over Ireland . He looks down and sees a
farmer in the fields and shouts down to him "Where am I ?" The Irish farmer
looks back up and shouts back. "You can't fool me, you're in that basket up
there.


"I had a Trivia competition in the bag until the very last question .......
which I got wrong. The question was 'Where do women have the curliest hair ?
'Apparently the correct answer was Fiji.

But Vest thinks it is Honerlulu

A woman has a medical at the Doctors; "you are grossly overweight" he
says. "I want a 2nd opinion", she exclaimed "OK- you're bloody ugly as
well"
