The Melbourne Cup, The race supposedly which stops the nation, Or does it?

For starters I am one of many persons who do not go along with that old wives tale, people who have a working brain will totally ignore this cup day hype. Of course if you are a thieving turf accountant (Bookie) it will bring tidings of great joy, Santa clause eat your heart out..  Horses are better employed pulling carts and ploughs and other means of transport and providing manure for the garden, also rides for kiddies. Old geezers have been known to take this horse riding practice to further their amorous pursuit of buxom blonde  riding instructors. however, I shall not waffle on about that. If it is your  first visit to the race track, you will be overawed by the constant palaver and near the end you will see fewer happy smiling faces than those with glum faces and empty pockets. But the thing which should be the dead giveaway to punters is you will find more Betting windows than paying out windows. I lived for two years looking straight at the 'Happy Valley' Race Course


Has the whole civilised world gone nuts? PLEASE WATCH AND PASS ON: There are also other YouTube videos worth watching.

Should Australia outsource all drug crime problems to Malaysia and Singapore

          Do not continue reading if you are a wimp or squeamish.   Draconian Drug laws in Malaysia and Singapore deciding the fate of Australian drug users and peddlers. would save the treasury a heap of revenue to be usefully spent elsewhere. The families of drug paddlers and users could be indicted for not informing on those, who have knowingly profited from  this illegal activity. Those people who would normally stand trial in Australia and if convicted - which would probably be the best case scenario, would serve out their time in Australia with enormous cost to the taxpayer. Well not if I had my way. These morons should be given a one way ticket to either Singapore or Malaysia depending on who was available.  Offenders could then be instructed to finance their defence with their ill gotten gains or in special circumstances which would be far cheaper than in Australia. Should by the odd chance a miscarriage of justice occur and these offenders were acquitted (which would

Two year old Toddler dies.

(BEIJING) — A toddler who was twice run over by vans and then ignored by passers-by on a busy market street in southern China has died a week after the accident and after days of bitter soul-searching in the country. A nurse in the intensive care unit of the Guangzhou Military District General Hospital confirmed that the 2-year-old girl, Wang Yue, died early Friday. She declined to reveal the cause of death, saying it would be announced later. (See more analysis of the incident that has scarred China's conscience.) The plight of the child, nicknamed Yueyue, came to symbolize what many Chinese see as a decay in public morals after decades of headlong pursuit of economic growth. Her death touched off another round of hand-wringing. Many comments posted to social media sites said "we are all passers-by." See TIME's Top 10 of Everything of 2010.

(Credit: via Youku) The video from Foshan City of Guangdong Province in China is unequivocal: A two-year-old is seen lying in a pool of blood on a market street having just been hit by a truck, which sped away after slowly running over her with its back wheels too, after which more than a dozen people walk around the toddler, non offering help. The child, named Yueyue, survived the accident, after a 56-year-old rag collector finally came to her rescue and dragged her out of the road, but not before a second truck hit the girl, according to China Daily . She is now, however, in rough shape - "brain dead," doctors say - and is unlikely to survive. By itself, the video (WARNING: Graphic violence)

The I G A Supermarket, Birthday Special, Complete stuff up.

Where I live on the Central coast of NSW IN Australia we are blessed with a fair selection of options when it comes to supermarket shopping. Within a radius of eight klms there are to my knowledge no fewer than seven supermarkets, some of which who recently  started advertising specials on a Wednesday instead of the usual pension and social security hand out day on Thursdays. Not to be out done the next move was by another supermarket to get their specials out on Tuesday. However, to get their nose in front of the big guys, the smallest supermarket chain has gone to the extreme and  has  advertised that their "Big Birthday Bonus" Today Mon Oct 17, I G A  Stores are open from seven am to eight pm and nearest store is minutes away. It is advertising more than a dozen major specials. So having nothing better to do but  help the struggling store we arrived at the nearest I G A store in Buff Point. I recall seeing this store quite sometime back when we called at  the Booze shop n

"Stay Put. I'll be back soon". Also 'Sydney the top spot'? "I doubt that".

Excerpt from my fav daily: Denpasar Jail Bali. ALONE and afraid,the NSW schoolboy locked up in Bali was left stranded in his cell while prison officers rushed outside as an earthquake rattled the island yesterday. Sources said the 14 year old facing up to six years in jail for drug possession, was ordered to "Stay Put" as the police station was evacuated. did he have any options? "I'll presume then that, this young offender had the opportunity to leave but was ordered to stay, So was his cell unlocked? I doubt that too. seems daft to me, but not the usual happening where Muslim rats leave the sinking ship." SYDNEY has beaten Paris and New York  to be voted the worlds best No 1 city by readers of a luxury travel magazine.      The Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards held in New York, voted the Harbour City their favourite spot. The readers of Conte Nast Traveler gave Sydney a score of 85.1 ahead of the next highest scoring city, Florence at 85. Most

Today in History. With comment by tragic news from Ireland.

1943. After surrendering to Allied forces in WW2, Italy declares war on Germany, its former Axis partner. Vest Say's; I always considered them to be a bunch of Wimps. As most of the guns on their warships faced aft in order to fire on opposing ships while fleeing the battle. 2004. An intoxicated Supreme court Judge  Jeff Shaw will join the list of other disgraced NSW and Fed  supreme court judges after crashing his Alfa Romeo into a parked vehicle in Birchgrove, he resigns soon after. Vest Say's,  Judge not lest thou be Judged. 1986. Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser speaks at the Memphis USA Country Club, He is found next morning minus his passport, wallet and trousers...... Hmm!!! naughty Malcolm. Vest Say's. Local Sydney DJ's  rustle up ancient recordings of silly Scottish  song, "Donald where's your troozers" Tragic news from Ireland, Ireland 's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small two-seater C

Bullying and how to deal with this never ending problem.

       BULLYING has a multitude of levels from the kindergarten to strong nations holding power over lesser nations.       So what is bullying all about? Opinions vary, however, intimidation comes to mind to be the main culprit.        Bullying is when people repeatedly and intentionally use words or actions against someone or a group of people or one nation against a lesser nation  to cause distress and fear to their wellbeing.        These actions are usually done by people who have more influence or power over someone else( but not necessarily having more intelligence) simply people who want to make someone else feel less powerful or helpless, generally these days they are referred to as control freaks.        Did you know? Children exposed to abuse, hostility, physical discipline and aggressive behaviours from parents are more likely to model that at school. while this is a minefield of opposing views, research has shown some children's brains are wired in ways that make t

Local Teenager Faces drug charge in Bali. And More.

       Fourteen year old Central coast schoolboy is in custody in Bali for illegal possion of drugs. Will these idiotic people ever learn until it strikes home to them . There is no excuse for knowingly flouting the law no matter which country you may visit.  For persons unaware that Indonesia have stringent drug laws, there are warnings given to tourists before they leave home and before they arrive. and only the foolhardy with the brain of a rocking horse would attempt fate, because fatal it could be and would be rightly deserved. Possession of any quantity of drugs if caught  would qualify the miscreant a term in the slammer for up to twenty or more years or in some very serious cases death by firing squad. Getting the message across to idiots can be difficult, so those taking a punt on a ten to one chance of getting caught,should never be afforded any sympathy whatsoever. Teenagers in the main love to be noticed, like showing their driving skills and how to wind dads car around

Leading by example and other idiotisms. Plus the Axe Murderer.

IF Hurstville. NSW Australia Mayor - Steve McMahon doesn't change his ways he's going to destroy the reputation of local govt. Hells  bells it might become a good thing. McMahon's selflessness, community spirit and altruism is a blight upon a level of government better known for planning delays, junkets, Israeli boycotts and at least one trip to Dubbo to seek advice from a fortune teller. This unusual pollie has also brought shame upon his office by flogging the mayoral car in order to upgrade a children's playground. And what is Hurstville's policy on Israel anyway? What is required is more Steve's in local govt to reduce excessive spending. New meaning to blind drunk. Teens are being warned to stay clear of vodka eyeballing or risk going blind. A flood of You Tube clips highlighting the fad of pouring pure vodka into the eye has caught the attention of young Australian drinkers eager for the promised fast tracked inebriation.
