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 circumstances.

England have won the first Cricket Test Match against Sri Lanka (Ceylon in older times).
Sri Lanka 400 all out and 82 all out. England 496 for 4 wks dec. winning by an innings and 14 runs.
Americans need not bother to fathom out the cricket info. It is mainly for the Australian public who will not read this result until tomorrows papers hit the stands.
Or you could do as I do and have the Daily Telegraph Australia's most widely read newspaper; delivered daily to your door. If  you are aged and poorish it saves you money and leg power.

I am still waiting for more comments from my Aus and UK rello's, BTW I know who is looking and reading. Anyhow have a bright and sunny day(please return the favour).

Back Soon....Vest.....Remember 'No person has the right to rain on your dreams".

It is still drizzling in between sudden downpours. So here is a song you oldies out there may remember, And sing it LOUD.

It Ain't Gonna Rain No More Song
Oh, it ain't gonna rain no more, no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash around my neck
if it ain't gonna rain no more

A bum sat by the sewer
And by the sewer he died
And at the coroners inquest
They called it 'sewer side'
- Chorus

A peanut sat on the railroad track
It's heart was all a-flutter
Along came the 4:15
Toot toot, peanut butter
- Chorus

My father is a butcher
My mother is a cook
And I'm the little hot-dog
With the candy that I took
- Chorus

My father built a chimney
He built it up so high
He had to take it down each night
To let the moon go by.
- Chorus

My daddy is a doctor,
My mommy is a nurse,
And I'm the little needle
That gets you where it hurts.
- Chorus

Mary had a little lamb
She kept it in a closet
And every time she took it out
It left a small deposit
- Chorus

Mary had a little lamb,
Her father shot it dead
Oh, she still takes it off to school
But on a slice of bread.
- Chorus

Mary had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell.
Mary went to heaven.
The steamboat went to TOOT-TOOT!
- Chorus

My uncle was a chemist.
A chemist he is no more.
For what he thought was H-2-O
Was H-2-S-O-4
- Chorus

Peter was a rabbit
A rabbit he is no more
For what he thought was a rabbit hole
Was a hole in the outhouse floor
- Chorus
It Ain't Gonna Rain No More Song
Oh, it ain't gonna rain no more, no more
It ain't gonna rain no more
How in the heck can I wash around my neck
if it ain't gonna rain no more

How to Tell the Sex of a Fly

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her
husband stalking around with a fly swatter

"What are you doing?"
She asked.

"Hunting Flies"
He responded.

"Oh. ! Killing any?"
She asked.

"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.

Intrigued, she asked.....
"How can you tell them apart?"

He responded,
"3 were on a beer can,
2 were on the phone."

At the end of the tax year, the Tax Office sent an inspector to audit
the books of a local hospital. While the Tax Office agent was checking the
books he turned to the CEO of the hospital and said, "I notice you buy
a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when
there's too little left to be of any use?" "Good question," noted the CEO.

"We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every

now and then they send us a free box of bandages."

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual
question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way.
"What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's
left over after setting a cast on a patient?" "Ah, yes," replied the CEO,

realising that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable

question . "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer, and every

now and then they send us a free package of plaster."

"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster
the know-it-all CEO. "Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the
leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?"
"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CEO. "What we do is save
all the little foreskins and send them to the Tax Office, and about
once a year they send us a complete Penis.
