Singleton Waterhouse stoush, lousy losers

Its a must win at all costs when it comes to dodgy deals in the racing industry. Crooks abound in plentiful hordes, there is dishonesty running like blood through the whole system, and mug punters provide it , Poor old much divorced and petulant serial bad loser Singo; lost a race which was a dead cert  winner, but his trainer and her dodgy booky son according to Singo passed the word around that Singo's nag was a non finisher and surprise  surprise it finished second last. Singo does his nut (nothing new about that) remembering the Ralf Nader v Singo TV stoush in the early eighties, Singo's Rudeness to Ralph Nader a U/S corporate advocate was enough to take the show off air.
However, the whole stinking mess last week at Randwick will be unraveled by hordes of hand rubbing Ambulance chasers familiar with racings dirty dealings.
OK so you are not a mug punter, well here is the first lesson you will learn at a race track, it concerns a simple math equation which in the hype and excitement to lose your hard earned you will fail to notice. There are only three paying out windows to every ten paying in windows.
Owning horses at any level is hard on the pocket, only Frenchmen have succeeded in making a buck from failed racing nags, by turning them into snags pies and good old tasty lasagne, nothing like a juicy stallion steak.

Vest  Back soon.

Well I did my bit for the non Muslim world by producing five sons, nine grandchildren and four great grand children.
Anyhow within two decades I'll be long gone.
Didn't someone say the Jews will inherit the earth, I cant see it being the meek.
Men will be the winners, particularly those who at present are controlled by their women.
Women will become virtual slaves to males under Sharia law. Mind you men will not be permitted to go shagging around willy ninny and getting pissed up will be taboo and smokes will become history. and Jesuit Tony Abbot will be preaching the Koran.
Things like the xmas ham raffles, pork roast, bacon butties, ham and eggs and pommy pork pies 'ALL Gone.' Saturday arvo stonings of unvirtuous women will replace the footy and you will be expected to get on your knees and pray between overs at the test cricket and all umpires will be Pakistani or Bangladeshi. an aged Abdul ric bin ponting will head Oz Cricket played in  crescents not ovals named after such noteries as Saladin , Bin laden, Mohammad, Saddam and Gadafi.
Life as we know it now will be history, Until the 'New Christian revolution, perhaps...perhaps..

ANZAC DAY AGAIN

Yes it happens every year on April  25, an event which commemorates the British Commonwealth Forces invading Turkey during World War One, formerly referred to as 'The Great War'.
Anzac Day is likened to that of Remembrance day in the U/K and elsewhere, which is cited as the day for remembering the fallen in all wars from that of the Great War, it was previously known as Armistice Day and  it was glorified on November 11, for reasons being the Great War supposedly ended at 11am on the 11TH  day f the 11TH month in 1918., Nowadays it is not remembered as before on the 11TH of Nov but on the nearest Sunday to the 11Th of November, the incumbent Govt  the Conservatives about circa 1970's? changed the date for economic reasons; meaning employers saved a few Bucks/Quids. cutting out another Public Holiday.

Each year,  Mini wars following the big conflicts help  boost  the  number of Ex service persons more so in Australia than elsewhere in the Commonwealth. Although Vietnam vets may not like the term Mini War. those Vets ex NAM on reaching the age of 70 plus who will be afforded a health Gold Card'; will help slow the ranks of departing ex servicemen in Australia.

Figures  which include(Non entitled to 'Gold Card) British ex servicemen living in Australia, also Ex Axis soldiers who fought against us who became Australian Cits and served in Korea in Australian units,; Who get the Gold Card. Hmm!!
In June 2010 there were 107,600 Veterans in Australia, The present figures show a ten per cent and increasing drop in numbers each year, the estimated figure being 69,200 at present but no doubt much lower by the time you read this.
Tomorrow I shall not be attending any Anzac memorial event, I am too old in the tooth to be getting up at four in the morning for the 'Dawn Service' which will not include people I know, most of my known mates are beyond the frolicking and Huge'Pissup" which follows the solemn dirges and bugle calls , mostly enjoyed by youngsters who unfortunately have in most cases no idea of the meaning of this sad day for remembering the fallen.

Vest.... WW2 & Korea, plus more. No Gold Card..... VEST NOT FORGET.

Five Surgeons

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing
 who makes the Best patients to operate on.


The first surgeon, from New York , says,
 'I like to see accountants on my
operating table because when you
 open them up, everything inside is
numbered.'


The second, from Chicago , responds,
'Yeah, but you should try electricians!
 Everything inside them is
color coded.'



The third surgeon, from Dallas , says,
'No, I really think librarians are the best,
  everything inside them is in
alphabetical order.'


The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles
chimes in: 'You know, I like construction
  workers...Those guys always understand
 when you have a few parts left over.'


But the fifth surgeon, from Washington
, DC shut them all up when he observed:
 'You're all wrong. Politicians are the
easiest to operate on.


There's no guts, no heart, no balls,
no brains, and no spine.


Plus, the head and the ass are
interchangeable.'

Life in The Australian Army.

Life in the Australian Army - Brilliant!!

Text of a letter from a kid from Eromanga to
 Mum and Dad.
(For those of you not in the know,
Eromanga
 is a small town, west of Quilpie in the far
 south west of Queensland)

Dear Mum & Dad,
I am well.
Hope youse are too. Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is
better than workin' on the
 station - tell them to get in bloody quick smart before the jobs are all gone! I wuz a bit slow in settlin down at first, because ya don't hafta get
 outta bed until 6am. But I Iike
 sleeping in now, cuz all ya
 gotta do before brekky is
 make ya bed andshine ya
boots and clean ya uniform.
No bloody horses to get in, no calves to feed, no troughs to clean - nothin'!! Ya haz gotta showerthough,but its not so
 bad, coz there's lotsa hot
water and even a light to see what ya doin!

At brekky ya get cereal,
fruit 
and eggs but there's no
kangaroo steaks or goanna
stew like wot Mum makesYou don't get fed again until noon
and by that time all the city
 boys are buggered because we've been on a'route march' - geez its only just like walking
 to the windmill in the bullock paddock!!
This one
will kill me brothers Doug and Phil with laughter. I keep getting medals for
shootin' - dunno why. The bullseye is as big as abloody dingo's arse and it don't move and it's not firing back at ya
like the Johnsons did when
 our big scrubber bull got into their prize cows before the
Ekka last year! All ya gotta do is make yourself comfortable
 and hit the target - it's a piece of p...!! You don't even load your own cartridges,they comes in little boxes, and ya don't have
 to steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shooting truckwhen you reload!
Sometimes
ya gotta wrestle
with the city boys and I gotta
be real carefulcoz they break easy - it's not like fighting
 with Doug and Phil and Jack and Boori and Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at home after the muster.

Turns out I'm not a bad boxer eitherand it looks like I'm the best the platoon's got, and I've only been beaten by this one bloke from the Engineers -
he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three pick handles across the shoulders and as ya know I'm only 5 foot 7 and eight stone wringin' wet,but I fought him
till the other blokescarried me off to the boozer.

I can't complain about the

Army - tell the boys to get in quick before word gets around how bloody good it is.
Your lovin daughter,

The Wedding of Samantha and Andrew

Saturday April 20.
Up the NSW coast in Budgewoi where my Wife and I live together with our eldest Son Chris, We had planned our 160 kilometer journey so to arrive at a prescribed time in Grose vale near North Richmond NSW the residence of our Son Andrew .
 First plan was for Chris to pick up serial prodigal son Tim at Hornsby station at 11am, Chris would be carrying in his vehicle all the music gear for the wedding, This was in jeopardy when Chris left a little late and Tim got peed off as he said he was freezing his balls off(It had been the coldest night of the year), to add to Tims misery I had to explain by phoning Tim that his brother Chris had phoned and said he would be even later as the battery in his vehicle had failed and was in a service station getting fixed up.
At the time I had just picked up my wife Rosemary from the Hair salon, and I needed to shave and shower, told wife to put all the clothes in the car and we would change on arrival if we ever got there, Rang Tim; told him I would pick him up at Hornsby Station  in about one hour , much profanity from Tim who said  he may go home. Rosemary remarked "that's good."
About five minutes from after the start of the journey it bucketed down like driving in a car wash for about 60 Kilometers, and was near where Chris was getting his vehicle fixed when  he phoned us in the car and said he was on his way and would pick up Brother Tim: so I  could go on to Grose Vale.
We arrived in North Richmond and were having lunch in a greasy spoon cafe, tried to ring Chris but the phone was out of funds. then borrowed a phone from the oriental cafe owner and was able to contact Chris who had picked up Tim after all, Tim shortly after joined us in the Cafe and Chris went on to set up the music gear, Tim was not at all happy all day and managed to create a scene late at night, Tim was shoved into  a small caravan overnight and was picked up by Chris who took him home about an hour after we left at 8am today, the journey home was without incident and the weather was wonderfully warm and sunny.
 Oh by the way the wedding went off fine,  lots of guests  who  were eventually quiet about 3am this morning, when asked to comment about the wedding to the photographer and others I quoted  ," It was about time" Samantha and Andrews daughter  Charlotte and Andrews daughter Aleisha looked  beautiful as did the bride and groom, and every thing went off nicely. the food in the main was The sucking pig and the Lamb on spits with seafood and other miscellaneous items.
On arrival home our Three animals(Two belonging to Tim) were highly delighted after their incarceration in the shed for 36 hours. Fini. Vest ...Back soon.

BTW Isn't it always nice to get home again to familiar surroundings and relax.

APRIL 21. Not much to say today.

Hip Hip Hooray!! It is the 87 TH birthday of  good Queen Bess today. Vest is wishing Queen Elisabeth of Merry England and her Dominions, continuing good health and prosperity as would her well wishers,
I hope the prediction rubs off on myself.

Vest , back soon.

Waco revisited Again and Again.

Authorities in the land of the Free and the Gun and new Huns, yes I mean  Stupid uncle Sam land,, land of the new generation Germans; must be a bit whacko not to figure out that about April 19 the 20TH anniversary of the slaughter by American armed forces of the Cult Davidians at Waco in Texas,; would present a good opportunity to exact retaliation on Texan Authorities for the death and destruction of Waco and its 85men women and children, yes 25 children.
Maybe time has erased this disgusting episode in the minds of the Americans who were involved in that only  Pol Pot , Auschwitz or Changi could match
The siege of Waco was linked to the Oklahoma City bombing which claimed 168 lives. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols admitted  their equally disgusting act was timed for the second anniversary of the Waco bombing. Over the past two days we have two more bombings, coincidence or what? or were other organisations using this date for their own misguided reasons.
You can bet your boots some crazy bastards  will use this time frame to keep our Yankee friends on edge for some time to come. but I hope I am wrong.

So the status quo remains, with few if any changes to the Gun Laws in  horse opera land the home of the AK47 toting Cowboys, despite going in with all guns firing, Pres Obama failed to target the problem with the second amendment.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Back on Monday Vest, Going to my No 4 sons wedding Sat 20.(about time too ) and probably a few grog inspired family verbal fireworks, doesn't that always  happen?

Visit to the Sceptered Isle set in a silver sea.? not yet set in stone !

For the info of  Relatives and Friends.

 

This will be an attempt to resurrect yesterdays post which vanished without trace, so to avoid further cock ups I shall avoid typing on blogger and in future C&P to blogger in case of failure.

The problem I see in doing this will mean it will not have the same meaningful content as yesterday being my mindset today will not have the same relevance

Yes I am still hopping mad but the experience will pass eventually.

At the time of writing the visit to Merry England is in the balance, pro’s and cons at loggerheads. The ability to withstand the rigours of a fourteen hour incarceration in cattle class was daunting enough four years ago, it will also mean Rosemary and I would have no assistance around the Airport unlike that which was provided by Chris on the previous visit.

Further to the ongoing saga the build up of the hurdles, the bars get higher each day with little foreseeable respite until the end of July. At least 35% of my past and present relatives are Cancerians

Which in itself can be demanding too, however, I am fit enough to walk unaided or even trot, A shopping cart helps or a stick for long distances. Also up to and including 30TH May I have three more checks on my health, seemingly a necessary evil although I cannot sense any problems except for a bit of LB pain now and then.

In addition to the afore mentioned family orientated marathon of events, next Saturday April 20, Samantha will become our Daughter in law when she marries Andrew Number four son (and about time too) a sort of seven  year itch in retro. Samantha also loves Sky-diving; total madness.

The family will consist of Aleisha from a Previous arrangement and Charlotte their seven year old .

Must drop a line to good Queen Bess to inform her of the Sixty year milestone Rosemary and I have clocked up, may even get a message or something., that will be on June 20.

How busy are you? If you can find time to send a message regarding your own personal ‘Goings on’ Rosemary and I would be elated ;due to the lack of it in recent times., news from relatives and friends can often mean a moment of togetherness despite of the separating distance.

Our family in The Land of OZ send our love and regards we hope to hear from you all soon.

But email can provide it faster..... Unc Les, aka vest.

Drivers who normlly break the law get praised.

Couldn't believe the crap I read in to days Sydney Daily Telegraph.

Police have praised motorists for their "Generally good behaviour" on the states roads this Easter long weekend. "What a lot of Bollocks" say I.
I shall not print the whole article but simply point out the stupidity of this mamby pamby statement likened to a child being given stars on their school books for their good behaviour.
Police figures indicated that only one motorist and one  pedestrian were killed over the Easter holiday weekend. ( Isn't that enough)But  one hundred and eighty five people were injured in 550 yes five hundred and fifty crashes.
A police spokesperson supposedly stated. The police are heartened by the fall in the number of motorists detected speeding and drink driving on our roads so far this weekend, Only 116 people were caught drink driving.
Well you fuzzy rozzers out there who think this is acceptable behaviour on our roads think again , it can only be acceptable when the problem figures drop to zero,. Drivers are not minors or babes in arms they are Adults who supposedly are aware of the highway code, being so called 'Good on our roads' is something to be expected, not simply a reason to lower the income  for chop shops and less work for our hospitals.

Today in History April Fools Day

Did the Sons of Nippon believe it would not happen on a Sunday and relax their defences? Following the dough boys resting praying or relaxing generally on that Sunday the Nips paid a visit to Pearl Harbour in 41,. It seems the Nips got it wrong as Uncle Sam's boys had established a foot hold on Okinawa early that Sunday morning before the nips could say 'yankee go home', the rest is history . read 'Operation Iceberg' on  Google.
On April 1 Sunday Easter day and All Fools Day 1945 The last seaborne invasion inWW2  the invasion of  Okinawa.took place
That which followed during the next nine weeks seemed endless to those engaging the Jap Aerobatic teams sent to annoy us day in day out, the problem was the Nip guys just didn't want to go home, nasty sods they were, very unpleasant, fortunately in most cases we gave them their wish. Vest, action station . ADP or GDP exposed position on superstructure  HMS KGV, Flagship of the so called 'Forgotten Fleet.' .But Vest Not Forget.
