Frequent Flying Fatty Forced To Forkout For Further Fare

A grossly overweight Welshman U/K was made to pay double fare on his flight to and from Ireland, because of his hefty girth which required two seats. But owing to the Irish element involved in the booking and seating arrangement he was allocated two seats which were rows apart. Welshman Mr Price says only an Irish airline could cock up twice when his seats were either side of another passengers seat. Mr Price who weighs 230Kilos or 490 lbs Say's it is one of numerous problems he faces.  It now seems that airlines will be charging overweight persons exceeding 127KG  a double fare. some will provide larger seats for bigger bums, the price will be similar to premium economy class or more.. As for the other domestic seating arrangements it is now possible to incorporate larger seating facilities in your lavatory or powder room which ever you prefer to name it, OK  for Aussies it is the rest room or dunny , so there are scores of names worldwide but  the one most widely used in all

Victoria's Historic Dungpolly Peanut Farm.50TH Anniversary. An S D YARN. ?

A friend who recently returned from visiting relatives in Victoria Australia had this unusual story to unfold far fetched or not it is supposedly true and according to the person spoken to  in a one pub town where he was visiting. The story unfolds about the time when French Onion Johnnies on bicycles flooded the Southern English countryside, having come over from France in boats full of  onions strung together which they carried in panniers on their bikes and over their shoulders to entice customers. Whether or not this still happens I am uncertain . However it came to pass that the person in question and his brother  were not only flogging onions but also that  'C' drug which even sniffer dogs were unable to detect in large carved out onions  containing cocaine wrapped in plastic sprayed with lashings of garlic.  but after a few onion seasons someone cocked up and the racket was spotted by the pommy constabulary, these wooden tops not being too sharp, allowed our subject and

Post no 1411. Travellers to Geat Britain(UK) Beware. plus Halloween 'A Con'.

Travellers heading for Britain have bee warned to beware of the weather as the nation battens down the hatches for the biggest storm in Twenty six years. The storm formed in the gulf of Mexico and has been rapidly bearing down on Britain. Forecasters have warned its strength is approaching the infamous1987 'Great Storm, with winds up to 200km/h, which killed 18 people and destroyed Fifteen million trees in southern England ( An unconfirmed report that several hundred greenies suicided hasn't been traced as yet). The storm has already been named the St Jude's Storm - named after the patron saint of lost causes believed to be a Victorian blogger from OZtrayer. whose feast day falls on this coming Monday.It is expected that the storm will stuff up the British having 'Yankee inspired Halloween celebrations'.  Halloween may be seen as a treat for children but those of us with a brain believe it is a trick by the CON fectionary industry to exploit fat children who norm

Blogging,.Not dead yet. plus more on Sunday 27th

It seemed that the arrival of face book would sound the death knell for bloggers, face book being an easy way to communicate between persons with  minimal brain power and pictures far more interesting to dumb heads than to have to figure out what the blogger had to divulge to his or her readers, as one Canadian female blogger suggested some time back ,"Face book is like masturbating without the mess",.Plus over the years of its existence a source of a great deal of criminal activity. Trying to get people to pause momentarily and indicate they have read your post and occasionally actually writing a comment of more than a one liner is becoming a thing of the past, however the picture chasing brigade are still visiting my blog according to Google and Adsense, my three figure payment arriving every Quarter suggests there is more interest in gazing at the glossy ads which adorn my posts. however as long as the info going out is read and and is found to be useful or entertaining i

Bushfires Devastation.

OK then you have heard about it and had it thrust down your throats and it's boring if it does not involve you personally, however a lot of home truths regarding this Bushfire problems surface while this problem exists but shelved when the problem goes away. Before the invasion of Australia by the British in 1788  the local indigenous tribes would back burn in the winter and remove the possibilities of fires around their settlements, but since then and at the present time the Stupid Greenies in Councils various, use threats of various forms of punishment for the removal of dead trees and undergrowth by tenants of property in these fire prone areas. One guy I know waited several weeks into a possible(waiting for approval period of a year) before deciding to remove a dead tree likely to fall on his house in an (Act of God) not covered by his insurance. reason being the council fine would be far less expensive than the repairs to his house caused by the tree should it have happened

Understanding Engineers.

Understanding Engineers #1 Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway." Understanding Engineers #2 To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. Understanding Engineers #3 A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been wait

Food from China - very important to our health.

LAWS FOR FOOD PROCESSED IN CHINA , HONG KONG , VIETNAM AND THAILAND !! DANGEROUS IMPORTED FOODS The whole world is scared of China made 'black hearted goods'. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ? For your Information ... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made. E.g.: all barcodes that start with 690 up to 695 are all MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan. This is our human right to know, but the government and related department never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products 'made in China ', so they don't show from which country it is made. However, you can refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are 690 to 695, then it is Made in China . 00 ~ 13 USA & CANADA 30 ~ 37 FRANCE 40 ~ 44 GERMANY

Train trip to Nowra and back.

Its a bitova tossup whether the pain of travelling by train is less than that of spending 150 bucks more and drive the 700 kilometres there and back. It is quicker by car but without the relaxation of the train should you be lucky to find a good seat, but it is the in between drag that spoils the train journey, like carting luggage up 48 steps then down to get to the train platform, then arriving at Central Station Sydney another problem - going down 30 odd steps to walk ten Min's along three underground corridors then down more steps to destination platform 25, to catch another train for most of the rest of the rail journey, and of course you are faced with the reverse of the problems during the return journey. Parts of the train journey, conversation with fellow travellers  broke the tedium of staring at piles of sleepers - cows -  sheep and gum trees. During the return journey, a half  hour wait at Central Station was enough for us to seek out Hungry Jacks burger joint, and wha

Sony 101cm (40in) Bravia LCD FHD Issue

Thought you might like to read what my son Chris just posted on the website... On Saturday, 10 March 2012 I purchased a Sony 101cm (40in) Bravia LCD FHD television from Retravision at Lake Haven in NSW for $675. On Saturday, 28 September 2013 (18 months later) I turned it on and was confronted with a rainbow of horizontal flickering colours that started about 10cm down and continued to the bottom. On Monday, 30 September 2013 I contacted Sony on 1300 13 7669 and was given a reference number of 795346 and told a repair person would contact me within 48 hours to fix it. On Tuesday morning, 8 October 2013 I had still not heard from the repair person and contacted Sony again, only to be told sorry and that a repair person would contact me within 24 hours. This afternoon, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 I had still not heard from the repair person, so I contacted Sony again, and again was told sorry, but this time, to contact the repair person myself.
