A Wild West U/S Town was in a pre election frenzy. The two main Antagonists were a Democrat(labor) bloke wearing red and the republican (conservative) in blue.
Rolling into town was the Medicine man with his horse and cart.
Both political candidates challenged the medicine man on the validity of his claim, that, his Blue and Red medicines cured certain types of illness at differing times of the year.
He Stated. The Red medicine was made from the bark at the top of the LACITILOP tree at the height of summer. The Blue Medicine was made from the bark at the bottom of the LACITILOP tree during the depths of winter.
These medications are very similar to those you pollies propose to inflict on the general public, during your pathetic efforts to cure the financial woes of the state.
But the truth is, MR RED if you allow him, will skin you from the earholes down.
MR BLUE I am certain, will skin you from the toe nails upward.

This may not be important to most people.
However, To my friends and associates of the HMS King George V Assoc,
FREDERICK HALLIDAY (FRED) was a real Friend, a Mate and pleasant to the extreme, who will be sorely missed by us, and most of all by Freds dear lady Betty, to whom on behalf of the assoc, we send our deepest condolences.
I first met Fred when he was stoking the donkey boiler (Hot water supply) on the jetty at Liverpool England, when our ship the large Battleship HMS King George V was refitting while in the dry dock.
It was during WW2, when most of us were just young boys on joining the ship, but matured to the extreme by the end of hostilities. Most had served three or more years in the Royal Navy and by then had reached the ripe old ages between nineteen and twenty two. I joined at 15 and 5 months on 7-1- 42.
Many years later an association was formed in Australia by former crew members of this famous ship that served with distinction both in Europe and in the Pacific areas of conflict.
Several calls into Sydney for replenishment and r&r became the motivation for members of the crew to migrate to Australia.
It was in 1998 that I was contacted, and after a gap of 53 years became re-introduced to several ex ship mates; some whom I recognised immediately, Fred was one of them. At that time there were about 35 ex crew living in Australia (at least) but an estimation put the original number to exceed 100 or 7% of the original crew. Sadly as I write we are only able to muster 22 members, widows boost our numbers of the assoc to around 50.
There were an estimated 47,000 navy persons serving in the Pacific fleet alone, that could possibly indicate using 7% as a guide, 3,500 may have returned to Australia.
Why did we return? you may well ask, the answer is simply, that, Australia is a beautiful country, Lets all keep it that way.
Vale Fred.

Junk Mail Help: When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these 'ads' with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.

When you get those 'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope. Most of these come with postage- paid envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular postage 'If ' and when they receive them back.
It costs them nothing if you throw them away, but the postage charges increase according to weight, so in that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it into these cool postage return envelopes.
ANOTHER GREAT IDEA is: Send an ad for your local plumber or chimney cleaner to American Express and a Pizza coupon with the assortment of supermarket gunge to Citybank. if you become over loaded with junk mail, stuff it in an old large used envelope and stick their return paid envelope to it.
If you wish to remain anonymous, make sure your name is not on anything you return.
The banks and credit card companies are currently getting back a lot of their junk by mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Lets let them know what its like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they will be paying for it...Twice!.
Let's help keep the postal services busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that is why they need to increase postage costs again.
If enough people follow these tips it will work.

Patronage of the HALEKULANI Bowling Club, has in the past attracted persons of mature age in the main, and mature age memberships will continue to assist the club in its operations, while the elderly continue to retire in the area.
However, it seems the HALEKULANI Bowlo is intent on self destruction, and without the help of the present downturn in club finances; due to the excessive pokie tax imposed by our state Govt.
Mainly on a Friday evening, patronage is sometimes that poor in the entertainment (dance) area, that ten fingers are enough to count the audience.
There are many excuses for this sort of occurrence offered by the club management, but none that add up.
The main reason for this phenomenon is the reappearance of bands or artiste's who fail to impress their audiences time after time, so the punters become really pissed off and trot off to Doylo Rissole or the Budgie roundball Club, so at the the end of the nights booze up they spend more on the plonk as these clubs Who charge like wounded bulls compared to the HALEKULANI but, they go home having enjoyed their evening out.
Last nights entertainment,30-4-05 was a classic example the band "Well Swung" has performed here before; four or five times at least but their attendance figures are falling and most people brave enough to risk deafness in later years were younger loonies oblivious to the dangers who were mainly band followers. The noise factor was so intense that most punters were seated far away from the band as possible. the brash mind bending inane deafening crap spewed out left about twenty per cent of the original audience in attendance at around 10-30 pm. The band would be more suited to a Potfest venue in a Bogville rural paddock. I,like many other members, will not watch bilge like this.
Members on line: Watch this post for crap entertainment to be avoided occasionally.

Vest Has Left the Building

To advise that Vest (Les Bowyer) passed away this morning. Regards, Chris (Son).
