Local stuff. Fishy business, and I must be missing the point.

Not a bad weekend, pleasant normal spring weather, feeling a little better I was enticed to the club for a few hours, watched a show which we had seen before; "The Kamis " a New Zealand group, which attracts a following of itinerant, or over stayers from the land of the great White Cloud, I'm talking  about Maoris, If you have never seen a Maori in the flesh you must think 'Big', The stern of a Battleship comes to mind, I have been informed it is hereditary and created generations back through eating 'Long Pig.'. Although where we live on the Central Coast is free from the restrictions imposed on fisher-persons in the Sydney Harbour areas, we  are offered so called fresh fish  in the shops which has an onerous background and in my opinion worse than that restricted by Govt regulations. People are still eating fish caught west of the harbour bridge, despite continuing concerns about highly toxic cancer - causing chemicals. Commercial fishing was banned a

Slimming Scam .Plus The Big Race and the Head again.

Having a lot of activities recently like moving my legs - gardening and shopping with nearest and dearest, together with a new exercise regime and  cutting down on or avoiding altogether certain foodstuffs, I have reduced my weight by about three kilos over a period of three weeks, those behind the times like the USA approx 6LBS 6 OZ. I am absolutely certain that the slimming mixture taken twice daily had nothing whatsoever to do with all this lard disappearing, so I returned  the said slimming mixture for a refund and have not fallen for a Peter Foster Type Balin Tea Scam. This slimming crap mob that  advertise on National Television, will be sent an appropriate letter on receipt of my refund. The current dilemma with my cranium and its weird carrying on has now entered the acceptance stage with little hope of answers for at least another seventeen days. The weather for the past couple of days has been normal if there is such a phenomena, so I'll say pleasant and without rain.

Post 714. Not so global Warming today, plus Health and Family.

Its tiddling down.has been for past two days, the Topsy turvy weather patterns continue making out door scheduling unpredictable. Seven weeks back a sunny 32 Cel and that was winter, indoors at the moment it Say's 17Cel;  but  outside I'm not sure more than likely cooler with a s/w wind a-blowing fiercely, I shall not bother to check it out. Cockies (farmers) are still griping about water allocations from the river systems in inland NSW although the drought of three years has been official declared over with joyful aplomb from those benefiting, but sadly some of these people are going from famine to floods with more rain yet to come,several weirs across each river would stall the maximum of the river water entering coastal deltas, "too costly"say some and not needed at the present time say others, life is a gamble on the land and a way of life for some, the hardy. Friday the intermittent throbbing in my the right side of my fore head became unreal plus with tightnes

Post No 713. "England Expects" and remembering ABERFAN,Plus HMAS Australia.

"England expects this day that every man will do his duty", was the signal hoisted at the yard arm of Admiral Horatio Nelsons Flag ship the HMS Victory ,commanded by Capt Hardy on the forenoon of Monday 21st of October 1805. Although certain standards of fair play in naval warfare were  expected this wasn't the case on this particular occasion, Inspections  of 'Victory's guns corroborate the fact that Grape Shot (balls on a chain) were a no no but were used during this battle against a superior number of French and Spanish ships and to add to the discomfort of the enemy upper deck gun crews and others were the bags of gravel (stones) fired by the forward guns of Nelsons fleet of ships. Can you imagine the destructive influence of a spread forty feet wide of several hundred large chunks of stone. If anyone was to blame for any infringement of the rules it would have been the orchestrator of the so called  dirty tricks Naughty Horatio Nelson  who was unable to answe

Oh You've GOT To Be Kidding Me: Four Ecuadorian Miners Trapped Underground

Well they say it happens in threes,.After the O'Higgin-Land disaster with 33 miners rescued, we now have another four Miners trapped on the same Continent, Of course those who know everything will dream up the theory that the forthcoming rescue bid will be a piece of piss compared to the last exercise albeit the differing geographical site. No doubt the know how from recent experience can be put to the task for the rescue of these under privileged and under rewarded blokes, working in poor conditions to feather the nests of the Fat Cats. Let us wish them a safe return to their families. However, you can be sure it will not be long before the next disaster, So don't put the rescue gear in the back of the shed yet. This just in: Four miners are trapped 500 feet down a collapsed mine  in Portovelo, in Ecuador's southwest coastal province of El Oro. The miners are believed to be alive because they were located in an area far enough away from the collapse, though rescuers hav

Waiting in Limbo.

This is all due to the present problem I am having, although I am not in extreme pain, the occasional sharpness of the short stabbing pains are more than a nuisance, my right temple as I write throbs intermittently. Although there seems to be no change from yesterday's symptoms, I slept well without waking last night without any help from pills and avoiding sleep during the day and retiring around 1230 am after falling asleep in front of the telly.  I have eaten a healthy breakfast and have walked around the garden, the wind chill factor is fairly severe to us bona fides ( Temp 15 deg) at 1030 am, courtesy of a 50 knot southerly from Antarctica, two days ago the Midday temp was 32 deg. Before overheating the phone for hours on Thursday, searching for a Neurologist who wasn't too busy, beloved and I attended the funeral of a close friend, I then had a sneak preview of an adjacent plot (Paid up by yours truly) looking down where I stood I said, "See you later".

MEA spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said, “It was conveyed to him that such an entrenched bias among sections of law enforcers towards the Indian community is a matter of serious concern. Such behaviour had no place in any society.” He added, “It was hoped that the Australian authorities would take necessary measures to address concerns regarding the
