Food scraps (Leftovers) to be banned from House hold Garbage collections

Food scraps (Leftovers) to be banned from House hold Garbage collections.  Most councils within NSW Australia have adequate systems for waste removal from households and businesses. The main problem is abuse of the system by uncaring persons with an out of sight out of mind mentality. The head line on page 5 in my favourite daily newspaper (Delivered daily to my door) Thurs Dec 23 2010, reads. Ban on bin food scraps: It goes on to say,. Food could be banned from household rubbish bins or residents might be charged extra to remove it under proposals to deal with the state's growing mountains of garbage. For full details google Sydney Daily Telegraph for info. For those people who are not already dealing with this problem and wish to deal with the matter of disposing the putrescibles  themselves, these few hints may solve your problems as well as helping the environment and if you have a garden; help with cost cutting. Of course it is your choice whatever you do. Items such as

Female Weather (changeable) And the 'Last Post' before Yuletide.

It's Chilly outside, a wind blowing force 6 from the antarctic. Three days ago blistering hot, also two days ago Sydney had flooding and a Hailstorm, last night we had an extra bed cover, previous night the fan was on overtime. Escaping the unseasonal Global warming  thingy in Britain right now are the the 'WAGS', the English test cricketers nearest and dearests whose arrival may have provided the catalyst for their lovers Limp finish after being on top for two days. This may be the last post until after Xmas, two days prior being taken up for medical thingies, and a bit of tidying up before our yuletide guests arrive.It is the Time of the Year to sit back and enjoy what life has to offer. However, I would like to thank all of you who have been gracious enough to visit my blog site over the years, regardless of content it has been a rewarding time for me. Christmas time for me is a period where I take stock and count my blessings although in my case the imaginative so

The Ghosts of Christmas Past, or is Christmas at war with us?

As I walk around the shops today, and here's what I saw: tinsel, Santa's, conifers. Here's what I heard: Rocking Around the Christmas Tree, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, a melancholy song about a deer with a coke habit. Here's what I didn't see: anyone complaining. However, as this blogger points out, some people are still convinced there is a war on Christmas If truth be told, Christmas is at war with us. From Thanksgiving to Boxing Day, there is no escape from the barrage of mulled wine, elves and people leaving office parties wearing their trousers back to front. As for the shopping duties entailed, well, "Christmas shopping: the conversion of one's indifference to people into active hatred , Cliff Richard and Christmas: a painful combination One aspect of Christmas I'd gladly have a war with: the music - anything featuring an expression of seasonal cheer or sleigh bells or robin redbreasts or swaddling clothes, I recommend total destruct

Are there intelligent people watching "The Grand Old Oprah 'Down Under' Show?

The plump dusky mediator for all things irrational and flagrantly absurd currently being pursued by name droppers and attention getter's, has created multiple malady's among people who were born with a brain, many cases of diarrhea and vomiting have been reported from local medico's who they say became involuntary involved with the loony Oprah Circus Released from the bondage of her gold plated 'I'm always right existence,Oprah shows delight to be among things real, but as one blogger put it, "I am sorry the Koala didn't pee on her for the complete authentic Australian experience. Tell me is there something I am missing, during her musings as a television latter day messiah/know all, the shouting and screaming never lets up and little compromise is ever achieved among the contesting loonies, Oprah's bi-partisan jurisdiction proving to be totally ineffective. So it would seem ; any Nong Head can appear to be assertive even when achieving nothing am

Nixon Tapes — He Disses Jews, Blacks, Italians, Irish......

Nixon Tapes — He Disses Jews, Blacks, Italians, Irish The latest batch of tapes from the Watergate era reveal that President Richard Nixon thought Jews were aggressive and obnoxious, the Irish were mean drunks, and Italians did not have their heads “screwed on tight.” The remarks, including others about blacks and Russian Jews, were contained in 265 hours of tape recordings released by the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, The New York Times reported. Nixon made the remarks to his secretary and top aides just 16 months before resigning as president, according to the Times. During one session, Nixon stresses that he is not prejudiced but adds, “I’ve just recognized that, you know, all people have certain traits.” Nixon continues: “Virtually every Irish I’ve known gets mean when he drinks. Particularly the real Irish. "The Italians, of course, those people don’t have their heads screwed on tight. "The Jews are just a very aggressive and abrasive and obnoxious p

Summer at last and why are sporting Australians bad losers?

The blistering sunny days are here at last, "Oh for some rain" but not in the former drought areas where  there is flooding. The famine and flood theory works well in the land of OZ. Warnie, the former spotty faced wanker now semi retired red ball twister and ex druggo, reformed smoker, plus divorcee and sex mechanic - is back to his boudoir sex romping with yet another ageing married celeb. Little wonder his sporting interests have taken a back seat, ageing maybe but  Liz H has plenty more to offer than his former scrubbers, mind you his lucrative cricket deals in India may become forfeit should the Billionaire Indian husband of  Liz H object to  the cuckoo in his love nest . The problem with OZ cricket at the moment, is simply a lack of Top Class players, but a plethora of  lesser players of equal talent. The selectors nightmare is simply having to pick a team from a bunch of losers. The cry "Bring back Warnie" will fall on deaf ears simply because of Warnie


A MERRY CHRISTMAS  AND A  HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE. An insult to Mothers! Or would you prefer to have been born Backwards?  A re-run. An Insult to Mothers - Who Don't Claim Perfection I do wonder at the mentality of some people:"Our 7-month-old gr/gr daughter is bonding with her nanny so strongly that at night she cries for her. This is really upsetting her parents as they spend a lot of time with their daughter -- they give her breakfast, bathe her, and play with her for one to two hours every day. They are worried that she's more attached to her nanny than she is to her parents. What should I do? they are both asking me "The obvious answer is to stop living the Special K lifestyle, and give your daughter some attention and then she might realise that you are her mother or father and not some stranger who pops in and out of her life. But we live in an age of post-Feminism, in which women need to be men to prove they are women - or some suc

Post 721. Welcome to the Australian Summer ?

Yes it is the official start to our summer down under when the Sun tracks high above and scorches the skin off your back if you are daft enough to check it out. However, the Gods have stuffed up with the weather pattern and as I write our street is -er Avenue is looking more like Chalgrove brook plus an outdoor temp of 17deg with teeming rain as a bonus. So taking a break from writing scores of  Christmas cards and my Neurological  affliction in quiet mode  I shall try to explain my absence over the past four weeks. The long awaited opportunity to see a neurologist on Nov 15 was thwarted by by my unexpected hospitalisation on 'Guy Fawkes Day' Nov 5th, I shall now see the the neurologist on Dec  8. My sixteen day sojourn in Gosford hospital was caused because of Kidney failure, and after five attempts to get a line through my veins to my left kidney, I had several hours of dialysis treatment and other investigative treatment,. Fortunately my kidney recovered, however, the docs
