Most Sons are bludgers. Some Daughters too.

Mothers and fathers are slaving in the home or working overtime to support the bone idle bunch of layabouts we call children, and Males are the worst culprits mostly school dropouts from sixteen year olds plus. it hurts more when looking back to an era that most people have forgotten , when at thirteen few options were available in the workforce on leaving school unless  your parents were wealthy and you were afforded an education befitting a well paid job or profession. myself on leaving  a charity boarding school at fifteen point five years and sent to the Royal Navy was not my idea for my future, but there was no option and to date the RN is paying approx 20 %. of my earnings..
A local study showed young adults  in NSW Australia and possibly all of Australia rely heavily from the support of their parents who in most case are stupid enough to allow their namby pambying of their bone idle offspring  to squeeze and bleed them dry.  A six month stint in the militia would cure most of these arseholes. Another alternative is to lock them out on a cold a frosty day which would send them scurrying to the job market
.In 1983 we had three working male adults  in our home called sons, each paid their mother  $15-00 weekly for total keep, they all howled when told it should be raised to twenty five bucks,  so I suggested they not give us any more money for their keep plus we Mum and Dad would give them an extra $100 each and thereby give them total control of all the A to Z aspects of running the household apart from business expenses. . some of your major concerns will be the following
Mortgage, power and telephone,bills, Food and other shopping expenses, also cooking, cleaning
 and all miscellaneous household chores plus the mowing and gardening. and the cost of the 'Pump Out' which will stop you having 15 minute showers.
The problem of the extra payment for their keep was soon resolved.

Yes, It is still summer here ?.

Miserable day today, woke at 5 30; from the window all that could be seen was rain and more rain , Strange how running water makes one want to go, from the bathroom window I could see 'Ginger tom' looking wet and bedraggled by the shed lean to, the randy sod never gives up.
Went back to bed - seemed the most sensible thing to do  woke again about 7 30 her indoors brought me the paper which was full of crap about thugby league, car sales and whats on if you wish to venture forth to the local club venues, after a modest brekky of cereal and tea, the weather being what it was like cool and very English sort of cricket test match weather and not wishing to go shopping the fridge produced a myriad of bits and pieces which were used for today's din din , a quarter of a chook left over from yesterday plus heaps of lean chopped bacon and six 45mm mushrooms a very large onion two carrots a stick of celery, two turnips the chopped stalks of the broccoli and a finely chopped tomato adding  a large heaped teaspoon of Keens curry powder plus   a chicken oxo mixed herbs and a quick shake of garlic salt combined - stirred into a two litre lidded glass dish with 1.5 cups of filtered water, cooked in the m/wave for ten minutes then added the gravy powder cook another ten Min's.  fortunately it tastes quite pleasant , but due to the bacon it is not Hal Al or Kosher
Forty years ago in Sydney Pig meat was more expensive than Sheep meat and there was a substitute for Ham in the form of smoked leg of hogget  meaning smoked ewe meat or older sheep, it was kosher and halal  possibly? not sure. Today we have pork in its cheapest forms about about half in price to best lamb. so as the saying goes
"Get some pork on yer fork you dork.".

Understanding Islam. ???

Understanding Islam
by Greesh Sharma, Ph.D

Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond. Dr. Hammond's doctorate is in Theology. He was born in Cape Town in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components.

The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamisation begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some
of the other components tend to creep in as well..

Here's how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States -- Muslim 0.6 %
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytise from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

This is happening in:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves, along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of
Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some state-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations
drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' – the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my
family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidels.

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not
even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death.

Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century.

Twenty thousand leagues under the sea. ????????.

The Movie Remake of the Jules Verne schoolboy story is soon to start in Australia. ?.

It is well known among people with a brain that the archaic distance titled a League  when converted into Miles will read, Three miles, So assuming some halfwit is going to travel 20,000 leagues, his converted distance would become 60,000 Miles. So if the distance between the Core of the earth being approx 7,500 miles and the shorter journey (not the Diameter) is only one Eighth of 20,000 leagues or 60,000 miles (see diagram) his journey would take him into outer space.
                                                                                         <60 20="" leagues.="" miles="" nbsp="" or="">
Assuming these are earths OOOOOOOO. So traveling in a lateral or vertical direction the Jules Verne adventurer would travel through EIGHT Earths.

Doesn't make sense or am I missing some obscure technical detail with this cock and bull yarn. Vest back soon.

St Valentines day Massacre Singapore 1942.

Japanese massacred British military personnel both patients and staff of Hospital on 14 February 1942 before British Surrender

Alexandra Military Hospital, Singapore, was meant for British military personnel from British Malaya, Singapore and the Far East. On 15 September 1971 the British handed the hospital to the Singapore Government. It is now called Alexandra Hospital. On 14 February 1942 Japanese Imperial Forces advanced through Kent Ridge down Pas Panjang Road to Alexandra Military Hospital. The British retreated west through the Hospital. They set up machine guns on the first and second floors to cover their retreat. A lieutenant carried a Red Cross brassed and a white flag to meet the Japanese. The Japanese killed him. Among the patients in the Hospital were a four Company force nicknamed the Plymouth Argyles who were survivors of the 'Prince of Wales' and 'Repulse' which were sunk by Japanese torpedo bombers off the coast of Kuantan, Pahang, on 10 December 1941. Japanese troops rushed into the wards and operation theatres and bayoneted a total of 250 patients and staff members. Before they could repeat their brutalities in other wards, an officer ordered them to assemble in the Hospital grounds. The troops, however, removed about 400 patients and staff and locked them up in a staff bungalow nearby. Next day these people were taken out in small groups and shot. The bodies were buried in a mass grave. Walter Salmon of the Royal Signals wounded by a mortar bomb was hospitalized on the top floor and had come to the canteen. He sat there a stunned witness of the abominable spectacle. On 15 February when Yamashita heard of the massacre in the Hospital, he went round the beds of the remaining patients and saluted them; he apologized profusely for the shocking conduct of his soldiers. He brought some crates of canned fruits and opened them with his bayonet and served the fruit to the patients. Later when he learnt that some Japanese soldiers were looting the Hospital he ordered them to be executed. After the Japanese Surrender in 1945 a book was kept in the Hospital. It contained the names of the victims who were massacred by the Japanese. The present location of the book is not known.
   Some of the victims were known to me as former schoolmates at WNTS who served on the battleship HMS Prince of Wales as 17 year old boy seamen. Vest.

My eldest grandson soon to be twenty, to me seems so young and vulnerable although he is of stature much greater than I  when  at his age I had been in the Royal Navy for 4.6 years with 2.5 years of war service. Much more was expected of us those days. "Happy Birthday Dylan" Grand pa..

Wot's in yer lasagne?

People in the UK are beefing on about the contents of their Lasagne and other dodgy meat products such as pies and sausages and the always a bit suss hamburger..
It seems Britain's Horse Meat scandal has backing from the Government and is advising people not to eat beef lasagne made in France and sold under the 'Findus'  brand due to the product containing  100% Horse meat.
Two weeks ago, the food safety authority of Ireland had revealed up to 29 % of the meat content of some beef burgers was in fact Horse meat, while they also found pig DNA. The frozen burgers were on sale in most supermarket throughout Britain.
The consumption of horse meat is quite common in France and neighbouring EU countries.
 Makes one wonder how long this has been going on . Mind you I recall Sydney in the early seventies having a similar problem. Anyone remember this sing song slogan on local radio, "Hurry on down to Harty's  - Where the burgers are barbecued" , Harty's were nobbled for adding local fauna meat to their dodgy  burgers, and who really knows what  muck we are expected to eat, I very much doubt if the Angus beef with no added hormones applies to all of the beef we are eating at takeaways. it would not surprise me if a mix of Buffalo,  Roo and Camel could be supplementing a bit of horse from the knackers yard.
However, eating unspecified nosh is what a lot of Aussies find yummy. Personally; to me Sino chow is my biggest turn off. Have you ever travelled to Formosa (Taiwan) and enjoyed a Chinese meal when in the back of your mind you may be aware that  3 or 4 times more Dog meat is eaten than other meaty dishes from bear and other odd tasting things on four legs.  Most sane persons would avoid the encounter with  Chinese nosh, the highest patronage would be from first time adventurists  and hungry bombed out drunks who deserve all they get, and it is a fact that more people suffer from an attack of worm infestation after eating Chinese and Indian nosh than any other foodstuffs

Bon appetite. .. Vest back soon.  Enjoy your Lasagne

I would like to have a few comments on this saga from my friends and relatives in the UK, which in it self would be a first off. I wonder who will be first/

Express Advocate Cocks up Again.

Some of the gibberish particularly when quoting statements made by persons they interview both astonish and irritate persons like myself and others with first hand knowledge of incidents wrongly explained.
I refer to the article in the Express Advocate local central coast edition, where the story relating to the consummation of 70 years of marriage by a couple from Portsmouth England in their nineties now living up the road from me on the central coast of NSW Australia, a Mr & Mrs Bush.'The Advocate stated Mr and Mrs bush grew up in Portsmouth Mr bush served in the Royal Marines at Portsmouth and was in 1942 ( on the cruise ship Fiji during the battle of Crete ) in the mediterranean when it was sunk by German bombers . He survived this situation and his happy married life continues on to this day Read about it. Actually they married in the same church ( St Mary's) Portsmouth as my eldest son was baptised in 1956. Rosemary and I are approaching our sixtieth.

Now the cock up, the Fiji was 'NOT a Cruise ship but a Warship of Cruiser class, and I can assure readers they were not built for lazing around in the sun. I served on similar class ships, twice on HMS Ceylon 52 and 57 and HMS Mauritius !947 Doing 'Exodus Stuff ' in the MED-Palestine (Israel.
