The 'Tall Poppy Syndrome" Strikes again. Plus more rain.

News papers are awash with vastly differing opinions regarding the Carbon Tax levy. Rest assured this dilemma will not be resolved overnight or even in the foreseeable future. Super star  Cate Blanchett and Michael Caton are being continually berated by the press and opinion from readers. Surveying the opinion on a for and against vote the jury would have  had Cate and Michael 'Topped at Dawn' today'. Journo's will have a field day with this carbon tax thingy. although very few will venture forth during the inclement weather continuing to harass New South Wales In general. Right now the rain is lashing down with high winds in concert with trees  rattling the walls and windows. The semi rural road drainage system; consisting of an 18 inch pipe under the driveway conveys rain water along a grassed covered curved course which at this moment could be likened to Chalgrove brook. Nearest and dearest and I have made the decision not to venture forth today under any circ

Global warming on hold. Plus Long snout celeb Say's "Pay up".

    No sign of global warming this chilly morn. Popping out of bed to make nearest and dearests morning cuppa, I beat a hasty retreat  and donned socks and slippers after treading the  tiled kitchen floor. Yes it looks and feels like a miserable day - similar to the past three days - tiddling non stop rain, we even have worms coming into the garage to escape the wet. Persons on lower incomes are up in arms  with regard to the Fed Govt's proposed carbon tax of around $500-00 per year per household. Millionaire Hollywood celeb Cate Blanchett, the actress with the big Smeller, who dwells in a $10 million country hovel at 'Hunters Hill' a Sydney suburb, is raking in more from the Fed Govt to add to her estimated $53 million.  Blanchett  stars with actor Michael Caton in the  Govt advertisement advocating this new tax. Like most celebs she and he are out of touch with the lower levels of living and too preoccupied with their own gaudy swill bucket. It would seem  $53 mil

Especially for U/K and Australian Family members.

Wishing you all good health and wealth - you know all that stuff that leads up to the other stuff that is intended to keep onside with loved ones, you know - the gushing blarney and so forth. Well now you know I still love you all: more or less as I am loved too, I'll leave it there and get on with the next letter filler the inevitable weather forecast or better still what is actually occurring in our neck of the woods..... Its pissing with rain; also cold and windy... has been all this week... similar to the week before last but unlike the warm sunny weather in between. Oh and a quick reminder for those who email me stating the warm winds are southerlies, In Strayer Mate they come from Antarctica; the South, We are upside down, and in more ways than one. Tim if you are reading this...Barney the Huge Black and  white Tom Mog still visits. Barney travels half a mile to us and is guaranteed a feed. And thinking black and white we have a family of magpies who  visit daily and allow

Stop Whineing, Water tastes much better.

To my Friends who enjoy a glass of wine!!!!   T his is really true ???????. Drink more wine and less water for your health A glass of wine To my F RIENDS who enjoy a glass of wine.. And those who don't and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand. As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, In beer there is freedom, In water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, Scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, At the end of the year we would have absorbed More than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria Found in faeces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop. However, We do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) Because alcohol has to go through a purification process Of boiling, filtering

Splitting The Human Race. Your choice the Ruling Class. Or an Ugly Morlock.Or should it all end Today.

The Sunny Central Coast of Strayer is having one of those days outdoors which would deny complaints from the worst gripers, of course apart from Umbrella sellers. In fact the past nine days has been more like a Pommy Spring following that previous week of unseasonal chill. Yesterday's message of doom and gloom (prev post) has been superseded by today's revelation in my Favourite Newspaper that, a Barmy US religious cult says the world will end today. I am working on the theory that, Eastern OZ is more forward in the time frame so by midnight, 'Kaput', also if you have any last minute shopping or fancy that last minute roll in the hay with your most favoured, "Do it now".  The extreme forecast for May 21 comes from Harold Camping,89 - year old founder of a Christian cult which interprets the Bible numerologically. His Family said "God wants us to know that exactly 7,000 years after God destroyed the world with water in Noah's day, he plans

All Doom And Gloom, one more year then "BOOM"

"Dont bother to pack your bags. This could be kingdom come."

Here is something for you to worry over this weekend. Have you noticed the plethora of funeral plans hitting your T V programs. You can't get one if you are likely to depart before the  2112 disaster, simply because the insurers are spending up big before they go on riotous living, or if saved, on lavish shelters with logistical supplies. .....Er indoors and I are past our UBD. No worries mate, except maybe the ten grand set aside (pre-paid) for our departure was bad thinking on our part. then again spending up big on bodily excesses right now could backfire on us and accelerate our ETD, that is; should the Whole business turn out to be 'Just a Bad Dream. ----- Original Message ----- From: To: Sent: Friday, May 20, 2011 5:33 AM Horrific predictions read next post from Newsmax..

"Darling I'm Working Late At The Office"

Which ever way this message is delivered, there are tell tale signs whether or not you are getting the truth. Allegedly cheats provide much of the work and income for private investigators who develop their own checklists of telltale signs that should set alarm bells ringing. I've taken the best of the bunch and provided you with a cheater’s checklist. (It can be applied equally to women to help sniff out an affair) At the beginning of an affair, a husband may be more affectionate than usual due to feelings of guilt. Later, once the affair has developed, he often starts finding fault with his wife as a defence mechanism to justify the affair in his mind. Cheating husbands often lose interest in domestic activities, such as DIY and mowing the lawn. He may have a change in sexuality and want more or less sex or make unexplained sexual requests. The cheater's relationship with his family will almost always change. He might become more distant, cold, or fault-finding.

Friday 13th. May. Blogger is down at this moment and has been for 36 hours. It has been a blessing in disguise...kept me on my feet and doing many things ignored of late. It wasn't quite as chilly this morning as the past week when some areas of NSW had snow falls and constant southerly winds coming up from Antarctica. the temp in the garden was 5 deg C higher than indoors. This morning we had a visitor..... haven't seen his rello's for a while, he or she was seen speeding into the top bathroom where I cornered it, but it eluded me and disappeared into my office where I am sitting now (The third bedroom). Too many places to hide. I brought up the M/traps from the garage and set four with 'Blue vein cheese as a bait which in the past always delivered a result. ( the bait can be heard as well as smelt from some distance) After my usual after lunch siesta ... a quiet period of approx two hours, I took a dekko in my office and discovered Mickey or was it Minn

Peeping Toms, Spy on Long distant Nudist, exposed by long distance lens.

     England:  A keen naturist who loves gardening in the nude will stand trial for "outraging public decency"after neighbours complained about seeing him naked.      Donald Sprigg 62, denies his nude digging and weeding cause harassment, alarm or distress" to  residents close to his home in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England.      The practising nudist insists he only strips  off when he knows his near neighbours are away-- and does not commit "indecent" acts.      He said complaints came from neighbours 150 metres or 162 yards from his home, who filmed him using a long distance lens.      He said he only went into his garden naked when his near neighbours were away. Vest Say's: I find it extremely difficult  even when wearing spectacles to assess if or not people are scantily dressed - naked or otherwise at the distance suggested.      My own yardstick is simple. By looking 8  house  blocks distant  each with a width of 55feet standard would be t

Walking Eagle. ..... Post No 800.

Walking Eagle On a recent trip to the United States , Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia , Addressed a major gathering of Native American Indians. She spoke for almost an hour on her plans for a Carbon Trading Tax for Australia . At the conclusion of her speech, The crowd presented her with a plaque Inscribed with her new Indian name - Walking Eagle. A very chuffed Ms Gillard then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds. A news reporter later asked one of the Indians How they came to select the new name given to Ms Gillard. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of shit that it can no longer fly.

It will rain tomorrow, it always rains at Funerals. Rosemary Chris and myself will attend a friend and old Shipmate's Funeral.  You may comment tomorrow but I shall be busy. Had a slight twinge in one of the large bottom teeth( yes 84 and have teeth). Extraction of teeth means large banking extraction, little wonder dentists wear masks. Our pretty street has one drawback and it is one of our neighbour we call users and abusers. The grass on their frontage is 18 inches tall which compliments the weeds in their garden and which is decorated with two shopping carts a discarded Bicycle and helmet and umpteen local news papers and flyer's among five miscellaneous vehicles, uncertain of how many inhabitants, don't think they are Indians. it has been suggested they once lived in Bidwill an underprivileged suburb and became nouveau riche. they only communicate with an extended index finger.

Will the 'Old Bill,' Bill Will and should Kate be Billed too as well as Will?

     IT stood out like a sore thumb; or were you blinded by the Gaudy Frivolity and failed to notice the plethora of  Ministry of Transport offences; namely, flagrantly and comptemptuously defying the Motor Vehicle seat belt laws , IE the wearing of such as supplied to a M O T Registered Motor vehicle.     "Allo allo, may I see your licence sir," does not apply to those with blue blood so it seems. So the wearing of a seat belt will not attract a fine for the Royals and their retinue at Bill and Kate's nuptials last Friday, However, if you are a clever dick, and have been nicked recently for 'Not wearing a seat belt' It might pay you to instruct your ambulance chaser to plead not guilty on your behalf,  This does not mean you have to lie or prove you are of royal blood. But you must state you are impoverished compared to that of the  Royals who are flouting their own parliamentary laws, And that you will gladly pay your fine provided that, the Ministry of Transpo
