On reflection perhaps the problem is actually just the title of the blog. Times have changed and I’m not really sure I *want* to ramble incessantly about ‘the world as I see it’. Perhaps I really should give up on the blog in this format and create a new one based loosely around my life … More Thinking it over…
If it isn’t obvious, I got ‘disenchanted’ with blogging a long time ago. I think I just got bored more than anything else, or perhaps I found soemthing else to occupy my mind/time/etc which ever, I just stopped almost a year ago. I came back a few months later to have a look around, but … More It's been a while.
It’s been a long time since I ‘blogged in anger’, months in fact. I’ve spent much of the last few months posting on the sister forum (Australian Opinion) mostly wrecking and rebuilding it. However I miss the old blog site where I can just say whatever the hell I like without having to take into … More Anyone still out there… ??
Billions again wiped off the financial markets. The biggest drop in total sharemarket value in decades. Financial ‘experts’ all round the world perplexed and unsure what’s going on. Sound familiar? Maybe it’s ‘Wall Street 1929’ all over again! It’s nearly time to stock the cupboards, lock the doors and pass the ammo!
The level of bizarre behaviour of institutions in the UK is getting out of hand. Soon they’ll be on a par with the lunatics in the USA. Current in the list of oddities is the case of two grandparents who were told that they were too old to look after their grandchildren… and were then … More Insanity in the UK.
I must have fallen out of the habit of daily blogging suring the ‘enforced’ break over the holidays. Yesterday for example, the site hardly entered my thoughts except at the beginning of the day when I realised I had no time to cough let alone write. Yet despite having my little netbook at hand all … More So much for that
Just for reference I thought I’d share a photo I sourced from The Australian newspaper showing just how close the fires were to Melbourne itself. You can see the burned out trees from the suburb of Kinglake and in the distance… near distance… the city itself.
Overall I really had a good day yesterday working away until my back started to ache so sat down. There’s still loads to do as always but this morning I feel really exhausted… and this is despite getting back to bed for an hour and a half!! Obviously I’ve no idea why I feel so … More Strange – tired again!
Temeratures hereabouts are set to become the highest for a couple of years according to the pundits. They aren’t being ‘exact’ though but suggest we can expect readings in excess of 40ºC this afternoon. Since yesterday afternoon (at 6:30 p.m.) the car thermometer showed 39ºC I think they might be a little off with their ‘records’. … More Another hot one coming!
Just dropping by to express my sympathy to John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston on the loss of their son Jett who died recently. I’d also like to express my condolences to the families of those children, numbering now almost 100, who have died as a result of the Israeli bombardment and subsequent invasion … More Sympathy
