We’d like to wish everyone who drops by a *very* happy Christmas and hope the New Year brings all your heart desires. I’d especially like to thank those dedicated garbage collectors who arrived at 4:00 this morning, for making that extra effort to ensure we were all up early enough to enjoy the whole day … More Happy Christmas Everyone!
I rang Customer Service at one of the local Shopping Malls (Castle Towers). The response was “I’m sorry, Customer Service is out today… please leave a message after the tone”. This conjured up all sorts of images in my mind… most of them bizarre. Still, nice to know that customers are so far down the … More Customer Service is out!
Seems all Senior/High School in NSW are to get their promised laptops by the end of term two next year… all those in *public* schooling that is. For those of us funding private sector schooling… there’s nothing. Forgive me for mentioning this… but aren’t *we* taxpayers as well? Isn’t it likely in fact that ‘we’ … More Getting the sharp end of the pineapple!
Well ‘moving right along’ is what we wish we *could* do but the New South Wales government has turned its back on hundreds of thousands of people encouraged to move to North Western Sydney on the promises or increased and improved infrastructure… including a rail link to carry people from the areas they live, into … More Moving right along…
No sooner had the new State Premier of NSW emerge from the debacle of his predecessors ignominious departure, but he immediately put his foot back in it with his attitude towards the pet project of the voters of North West Sydney where, coincidentally, I happen to live. Some background might help here, not about the chaos … More Railroaded again?
Long ago in a far distant time, in the 1960’s I think, long before Dudley Moore had become Dudley Moore… or died of course… there was the brilliantly dangerous show “Not only but Also” starring Pete and Dud. They’ve little to do with this post other than contributing the subject line and the immortal words … More Now is the time to say goodbye…
It was two years ago that Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) was killed by a sting ray and started the rise to fame of little Bindi. Since then the Irwin family has been in the news here on and off… admittedly more on… with various issues, problems, and triumphs. For months we’ve carried a link … More Two years ago…
Perhaps not so much “missing in action”, as “missing because of in-action”. What am I talking about? Well I went to my diet specialist to have a chat and see if we can do something about my total inability to control my eating. You might remember I lost 40+ kilos just before Xmas, I did … More Missing in action?
The baby humpback whale found stranded and motherless in Sydney Harbour, and named Colin… later Colette, was finally ‘euthanased’ in Sydney Harbour yesterday. There’ve been all sorts of stories about her and the way she was/wasn’t aided by government agencies etc and there is now talk of a *summit* of experts to try to establish … More A whale of a time.
The USA is determined to address what it sees as possible criminal or terrorist potential by temporary workers. It’s doing this by deporting people, who have committed an offence, back to their country of origin. This seems quite reasonable, except that they are doing this regardless of the time they’ve spent in the US, or … More Insane in America
