A short serve of imformation

This might serve as an suitable reply to to the minimal traffic arriving from relatives and friends with regard to posts and letters to relatives, sent out over the past few weeks. Last Sunday went off well although I was the sole survivor of my assoc attending the Anzac Commemoration. Unfortunately the tobacco smoke in one area of the club has affected my eyes, hence watery stinging eyes have made the past three days unpleasant, so this post will only be received by those who have requested it.  Due to my eye problem driving is out, so our proposed trip to see our sons and families down south is off, an email to Andrew no 4 son who rarely checks his email will surprise him that we didn't turn up!!! This post will serve as a reminder to David who answers his email more regularly. Now here is some real bad news for Smokers. The cost of smokes will shortly increase to recover some of the costs smokers contribute to the poor health of others and to themselves. ..Cigarettes to com

The Australian gold card. A Re Run followed every few days of five posts relating to this issue.

September 2005 The Australian 'GOLD CARD'. The ongoing Gold Card saga plods its weary way through the morass of political discrimination. The first requirement for this elusive 'Gold Card is that, you were born in Australia, or if you migrated to Australia and served in the armed services and faced the enemy in the defence or in the interests of Australia; in or overseas. You dont have to be wounded in action or become the holder of a distinctive decoration, you may be a non combatant in a designated war zone, and of course you must be an Australian citizen at the time of qualification and at the time of the receipt of the award and more than 72 years of age. I am a ex British serviceman who served in the British Navy for nearly four years during WW2, Korea and middle east conflicts. Based in Sydney Australia during WW2, the last nine months was spent at sea in the Pacific serving with Australians and the United States forces until the surrender of Japan. At th

A Poem for ANZAC DAY.

A Poem Worth Reading He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the RSL, Telling stories of the past. Of a war that he once fought in And the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; They were heroes, every one. And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors His tales became a joke, All his buddies listened quietly For they knew where of he spoke. But we'll hear his tales no longer, For ol' Bob has passed away, And the world's a little poorer For a Soldier died today. He won't be mourned by many, Just his children and his wife.. For he lived an ordinary, Very quiet sort of life. He held a job and raised a family, Going quietly on his way; And the world won't note his passing, 'Tho a Soldier died today. When politicians leave this earth, Their bodies lie in state, While thousands note their passing, And proclaim that they were great. Papers tel

Good Queen Bess has her 4Th 21st, St Georges Day and ANZAC DAY.

A quiet start to the week so far no dramas, rising at 8 am Sunday  we had an early brekky then drove to Toukley market , which is a mixed bag of  things they don't want and you don't want, it would seem that people were cagey and doing lots 'Just looking'. With the sun out in force(SUNDAY) and minus hats we escaped to the local greasy spoon and indulged in a plate of fries, Probably trans fat jobs but tastier than those at Macca's. The remainder of the day devoted to domestic bliss ? Monday another scorcher, had to put netting over the seed beds covered with old worn sheets damped down. We are in Autumn, and today is cooler at 29 cel. Yesterday I phoned my dear friend Harry and his Wife Marie, Harry is  suffering from terminal cancer. With  so many other old ship mates too disabled to attend  I shall be at the Anzac remembrance alone with Rosemary. For those unaware of  Anzac day, Its origins began after WW1 and commemorates the fallen in subsequent wars, those of


My April 10  2010 post attracted several nasty emails and one nasty comment regarding the movie industry relating to people from the promised land and elsewhere. So ok you guys here is a bit more to chew on, its dated, but still worth a read, it just goes to show how some people despite being intelligent and worldly wise can be so terribly dimwitted wherever religion rears its ugly head. Wednesday, 27 December 2006 RABBI DAVID SLAVIN, THE GREEDY ECCLESIASTICAL LUNATIC OF THE YEAR. MOST people by now will be aware of my non alignment with the Faith Industry regardless of your choice of calling. Praying to ask that the laws of the universe be annulled for a particular petitioner is not my idea of facing up to the music and getting off your arse and getting on with life in a materialistic manner. Blind faith has few rewards, Hope which is desire and expectation rolled into one; is achieved through using logic and commonsense. However, a sense of Charity is to be expected from all


How to become a Facebook Murder Victim. Any offending comment may be deleted or edited. Weather: Sydney 18°C - 25°C . Fine. Sunny periods. .The inside story of the Facebook murders. SARAH Richardson took only moments to change her profile on Facebook from "married" to "single". There was nothing out of the ordinary about the move. Each day across the world, millions of people are constantly updating their pages on internet social networking sites. Comic Jim Carrey used Twitter last week to announce his break-up with former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy. "Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I'm grateful 4 the many blessings we've shared and I wish her the very best! S'okay!" Carrey wrote. However, the end of the Richardsons' relationship had become increasingly hostile. The pair had been estranged for weeks. She had moved back home with her parents and although she had told friends they still loved one another, she h

Paris pool bans Muslim woman in 'burqini' swimsuit.

   A PARIS swimming pool has refused entry to a young Muslim woman wearing a "burqini", a swimsuit covering most of the body, officials said, adding to tensions over Muslim dress in France. The incident came as French lawmakers conduct hearings on whether to ban the burqa after President Nicolas Sarkozy said the head-to-toe body covering and veil was ”not welcome” in France, home to Europe's biggest Muslim minority. Officials in the Paris suburb of Emerainville said they let the woman swim in the pool in July wearing the “burqini”, designed for Muslim women who want to swim without revealing their bodies. But when she returned in August, they decided to apply hygiene rules and told her she could not swim if she insisted on wearing the garment, which resembles a wetsuit with built-in hood. Pool staff “reminded her of the rules that apply in all (public) swimming pools which forbid swimming while clothed”, said Daniel Guillaume, an official with the pool managemen


HAVE FUN GETTING RID OF YOUR UNWANTED JUNK MAIL SEND IT BACK OR TO SOMEONE ELSE 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

Fat Cricketer Warne Gives up Extra Marital for Gambling. Plus "Happy Motoring."

Probe on Shane Warne-An online betting agency endorsed by former champion cricketer Shane Warne is under investigation by Australia's communications watchdog.  The Australian Communications and Media Authority confirmed yesterday it had received a complaint that the betting site 888sport was in breach of the Integrated Gambling Act. The spokesman, who would not say who raised the objection, said: "We have had one complaint and our investigation is ongoing. However, we have not closed down the site." He would not comment further. Yesterday morning, it was up and running and taking bets on races in Victoria and NSW. By afternoon the site suddenly went offline. It stated the service was temporarily unavailable.  The company believed to be owned by 888 Holdings PLC, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange - by phone and email. A customer service spokesman said: "We are temporarily unavailable. That's all I know." Asked if the problem was software-relate

You are watching Hebrew Television, There is little other choice.

You are watching Hebrew Television, There is little other choice.  Unlike Foxtel or Aunty ABC,I don't dish out too many re-runs of my posts.However , today my sedentary mode will be replaced by other activities and catching up with my club friends Jack Daniels and J Walker and possibly  a demonstration of my prowess on the dance floor. After staying up late last night watching movies one in particular prompted me to give this former post another airing.    IT does appear that those who were ostracised by the govt of that 'One balled Chocolate waffling vegetarian Mr Shicklegruber, are now in total control of the media industry and walk hand in hand with their former enemies; the industrial and political Fascists. Both Ideoligies seemingly working together lovingly. Why do 95% of film makers; despite the many differing creeds and racial origins globaly, always dominate their scripts with hebrew names for their actors. Mind you, cronyism and nepotism is rife within the fi


Facebook pedophiles target Britain's Got Talent TV star Hollie Steel. BRITISH child star Hollie Steel was targeted by pedophiles using her Facebook page, her worried mum was reported as saying . Hollie, 11, was sent a series of sick messages by men since appearing on the UK TV contest Britain's Got Talent. Her mom Nina Steel, 37, said: "We've had pedophiles on the internet write disgusting things. "Through Hollie's Facebook they write really disgusting messages to her. It's appalling - I don't know how they get away with it. "I have replied saying, 'This is actually Hollie's mom and I'm going to report you.' I go mad at them. I did report one who was really bad." A family friend who looks after internet security for Hollie's parents discovered a pedophile was banned for sending sick messages - but kept getting back on to the site by using false names and was accused of grooming young children. Campaigners have call

Bishop Anthony Fisher The New Faith Industry Broom Shaker for Parramatta.

GODLESSNESS and secularism led to Nazism, Stalinism, mass murder and abortion, according to Anthony Fisher, the new bishop of Parramatta, who has used his inaugural Easter message to launch a scathing attack on atheism, while ignoring the sex abuse scandals besieging the Catholic Church worldwide. Good Friday is the anniversary of Christ's death on the cross, and the Easter festival shows that he lives despite efforts to kill him off, according to the archbishop, who is tipped by many to become the next head of the church in Australia and leads the largest Catholic diocese in the country. Which is a great idea, as any replacement for Cardinal 'foot in mouth' - Pell would be welcolme, even by staunch  R C kneelers. ''Last century we tried godlessness on a grand scale and the effects were devastating,'' he said. ''Nazism, Stalinism, Pol-Pottery, mass murder and broken relationships: all promoted by state-imposed atheism or culture-insinuated secul

Unethical Face Book Cashing in on Drug Guinea Pigs.

MORE FACE BOOK SCANDAL   The Sunday Telegraph has uncovered evidence of a "clinical trial recruitment consultancy" targeting social network users with financial incentives to be human guinea pigs. In Australia, drug companies and researchers are explicitly forbidden from using payments or inducements to recruit volunteers under National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) ethical conduct rules. Have you been targeted on Facebook? Tell us below Only reasonable expenses such as transport, food and parking can be reimbursed. This is to prevent people becoming involved for financial rather than altruistic reasons, as in the UK and US where people will "sell their bodies" for research.  The truth about drug trials But the company Rewards for Research is sending messages and email alerts with promises of money to potential candidates using social networking sites including Twitter to target young people who are desperate for cash. Last month it starte

Robin Williams - Actor and a lousy one to boot. Funnyman? No is the familiar reply.

Then again it could be yes he is funny particularly from nong head residents of Unclesamland whose funny bones are out of joint(Not whacky Baccy). However, not all U/S residents are as unpalatable as Bob* Williams,*Pronounced Barb, but despite his dodgy gender, Barby doll he aint. Barbs portrayal of Mrs'Doubtfire' in that incredibly stupid movie where he plays the cross dressing guy? in drag who substitutes as nanny-housekeeper  to a dim  witted nouveau riche American family. Bob, Barb, Rob  Or Knob Dog or shall I refer to him as 'Just Williams' has stirred the latent anger in our prone to fits of such antics, soon to be deposed I hope Kevin Bloody Rudd the Hon Prime Minister of Strayer, he Kevin replying to a snide remark made by Williams which referred to all Aussies being as he put it; basically English Rednecks. Our Kev replied on steam radio that he Williams should visit Alabama the ancestral home of rednecks, probably holding himself in check and not mentioning
