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 t

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 a

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 ot

Laugh yourself Horse

Within hours of the news that Tesco's 'all beef hamburgers' contained 30% horse meat, these quips hit the Internet : o I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse … I guess Tesco just listened. o Anyone want a burger from Tesco? Y ay or neigh? o Not entirely sure how Tesco are going to get over this hurdle. o Waitress in Tesco asked if I wanted anything on my Burger … so I had a £5 each way bet! o Had some burgers from Tesco for my tea last night … I still have a bit between my teeth. o A woman has been taken into hospital after eating horse meat burgers from Tesco. Her condition is said to be stable. o Tesco are now testing all their vegetarian burgers for traces of unicorn . o I've just checked the Tesco burgers in my freezer ... AND THEY'RE OFF . o Tesco now forced to deny presence of zebra in burgers, as shoppers confuse barcodes for serving suggestions. o Said to the missus, “These Tesco burgers g

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 yar

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, Pahan

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 n

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
