To add to my woes during the past week, the orthopaedic specialist having studied numerous x rays has booked me in for 'Keyhole' surgery on my right knee, this is to remove torn cartilage which is also adding to my aches and pains, There are other personal areas of my tired and worn body that need fixing too , but if fixed might lead to an over exertion problem , I am thinking in my case having lived without worrying over bodily privileges for a while I should let the sleeping monster lie.
Blogger news : one of my fav oz bloggers 'BURNT KARMA' supposedly retired from blogging recently to spend more time with her writing and family. she is a Channel 7 news caster and has been caught up in this PAPUA (Indonesia) cannibal thingy , will not waste time-see for yourself in the Saturday Daily Telegraph, My favorite news paper delivered to my door daily.

Comments !! What comments, well there were two, one from a lawyer and another from looney English person, who is more than a few buttons short, this person along with a number of other bloggers whom I am convinced could be the core of the vitriolic comments have been blocked. from commenting, the 'S' person in particular, whom some regular commenter's informed me was trolling from this blog to theirs and stirring the can, thereby causing disruption to their thread of thought.
I now believe this threat has ceased to be a problem. however, I shall continue calling to comment, my average is about eight per day, and not always one liner's.
Ah well , I must leave it at that for the time being , I am having a physical health problem at this moment , more later.
