Cricket Hero's, hardly mate, Simply a bunch of over paid Dickheads.Hardly setting an example for our youngsters.

Generally the whole sordid bunch of these nose picking, spitting crutch scratchers are well paid Icons doing a job they enjoy.( They are not hero's)They are not putting their life on the line. What they are doing is simply a legal non life threatening way of robbing a Bank. Most of these nut heads deserve the criticism they receive, mostly due to the cheating which is rife within the game that has the most flexible laws of any sport. Also match fixing is inherent within the game and cannot be ruled out in even the most exposed fixtures.

Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child. Or should Parents and Guardians have to run the gauntlet between their Prodigy and Dogmatic Do gooders.

Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child. Or should Parents and Guardians have to run the gauntlet between their Prodigy and Dogmatic Do gooders. Vest Say's. Labour's smacking laws could be 'unworkable' the rulings are as clear as mud.It has suggested that parents who do not mean to harm their children should never be jailed.Documents prepared by Lord Phillips and colleagues said that if a parent who smacked a child had not meant to cause, or did not foresee, an injury they would not have intended to commit a crime. This is a point where most people should agree upon. The more likely opponents would be those who do not have disobedient children under their control, mainly on the shelf bureaucratic old biddies with an axe to grind.The Children Act of 2004 removed the defence of "reasonable chastisement" from parents who injured their children. Injuries as slight as a bruise can now result in an assault charge.However, in consultation papers the council said the courts


YOU COULD say a master pick up artist spawned a generation of woman-obsessed sex monsters - but that wouldn’t be entirely fair. In fact his cult book ‘The Game’ helped turn the art of seduction into a lifestyle and turned average frustrated chumps across the world into girl-magnets. Skinny, balding Mr Nice Guy eventually became ‘Style’, the world’s greatest pick up artist, testing his techniques on a host of celebs . The seduction underworld is now a global movement, with lairs of pick up artists (PUAs) living and sarging (aka picking up ladies) together.Following the release of ‘The Rules of The Game,’ single and defenceless girls-about-town , thought it was about time the secret world of the PUA was infiltrated. You must remember that a Pick Up Artist’s life revolves around winning your approval. “You go in with an opener using what we call ‘time restraint’,” “Usually I’ll say: ‘Look, really quickly – because my friends are waiting for me and I’ve got to go in a minute – do you think

The Demise of Mr Common Sense and The Arrival of the Blameless Society

A fact of today's life……………… My parents told me about Mr Common Sense early in my life and told me I would do well to call on him when making decisions. It seems he was always around in my early years but less and less as time passed by. Today I read his obituary. Please join me in a moment of silence in remembrance, for Common Sense had served us all so well for so many generations. Obituary Common Sense .Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children are in charge).His health began

Lots of Blood- cuts and bruises, still in pain. Not a great weekend.

Rosemary and I visited our son Andrew and his wife Samantha and their two Beautiful children Aleisha and Charlotte at 'Kurrajong' NSW last Friday Feb 8. We were expecting to leave for home the following morning, however, things did not pan out as expected. Although we had visited before, we had never stayed overnight. Their rented  house was formerly a sandstone cottage which had been renovated the stonework had been rendered and painted and with the new additions was on two-plus levels. We had dinner and  watched sport On the TV in the evening also a movie titled 'The Texas Chain Saw Murders', and then near midnight we retired to bed. The following morning around 8:30, Rosemary used the bathroom and showered and around 9 am called me to say the bathroom was available. I then donned a pair of trackpants and was heading for the bathroom with a towel in one hand and a toiletries bag in the other hand then it happened. Not noticing that the floor outside of the bedro

SHIT SHIT SHIT. The Word Shit will be considerd an accepted expression on this blog, provided it is only used under dire circumstances

In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer's invention, so large shipments of manure were common. It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM! Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening. After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the term "Ship High In Transit" on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane. Thus evolved the

What goes Up In Aussieland is coming Down in Pommyland. Kiwis going down too.

UK news. HOME Owners hoping for big cuts in mortgage repayments look set to be disappointed tomorrow. Some experts had hoped for a 0.5 per cent drop in the interest rate to five per cent. But the Bank of England now seems likely to reduce it by just 0.25 per cent. If passed on to homeowners, monthly repayments on a £100,000 standard variable mortgage would fall by just £21. Aud$45.00. The opposite situation is happening for Ozstrayers borrowers slugged with an interest rate hike, but for me , soon no doubt I'll pocket another increase on my savings, ha ha. So it seems the Poms are on a winning streak, beating The Kiwis 3-0 in the three match twenty-20 series, but it was sad to notice the abscence of familiar kiwi players. Tomorrow I'm off down the coast to visit #4 son & family, and will watch the demise of Ozstrayers 50 over team at the hands of the best ODI team in the world Sri lanka. Next post on Monday-maybe. Have a wonderful Weekend.

Who are More Capable: Men or Women?

Dame Beryl Bainbridge, one of Britain's best known contemporary writers, has reopened hostilities in the battle of the sexes by declaring that "men are more capable then women". Dame Beryl Bainbridge has been nominated for the Booker prize five times The 75-year-old author recalls how a male publisher used to keep her on a tight leash. “I think that’s what men are supposed to be like," she says. "That’s what they are supposed to do. I still think men are more capable than women. I have never ever thought to myself that I was better than a man, ever.” Vest is asking you bunch of clever dick bloggers your opinion on this gender bender, so get to it. Are you more aligned to one or more opposite gender bloggers because of their tendency to turn you on, dont fib tell the truth, personally I do, or lets find some aggravating retorts to clear the air; but no names - please. Do you agree with Dame Beryl? Do men excel in some areas and women in others? Or has she betray

Just another Faith Industry Fraud

From Roger In the UK . Priest caught with £30,000 of cocaine hidden beneath his cassock A priest was caught with £30,000 of cocaine hidden beneath his cassock after getting off a plane. The Bolivian, who had three kilos of the drug in sealed bags strapped to his legs, raised suspicions when when he refused to be frisked by customs on "religious grounds". A spokesman for Schiphol airport in Amsterdam said: "At first he claimed the white powder was holy sand, but tests showed it was cocaine." The unnamed priest, who was arrested last week, is being held in custody charged with drugs smuggling.
