The asshole’s at the TGS have now banned GP’s from prescribing Ivermectin for Covid! This is insane and criminal. They are tightening the noose!

Meanwhile, there is a doctor in India being charged with mass murder for covering up the information about ivermectin. And over there the government is giving residents free ivermectin – a cheap alternative to save lives. How evil that we can’t get it here.

Hey Bruce in WA! Spent my day picking olives and putting them into soak using the method you recommended last year on Dead Cat. Last years were such a hit, I’ve been under pressure to repeat the process.
I did hold back a kilo of ripe black olives to salt cure them outside Portugese style. Planning to flavour them with fennel and lime when done and bottled in about three weeks.
Just wanted to say thanks for making what I previously thought was a difficult job, so easy and successful.

Excellent news. I did about 8 kilos this year. Haven’t tried the Portuguese style yet … let me know how you go, please. I’ve been busy with limoncello, pickled onions and tomato chilli jam. Well, stops me throwing bricks through the TV …

Merewether West. My mum came from there.
She was the eldest of five and the day she turned 14yrs her mother told her that she must not go to school anymore but stay at home and help with the household. My mum objected and after seeing an ad for a shop assistant in the paper, applied to Krempins’ seed shop for the job by walking, not having the tram fare, many miles in the early hours of the morning and finding herself third in the queue. But, she got the job. Her mother agreed that so long as she could do all her household duties before going to work then it could be so.

My mum went to night school during her years at Krempins to obtain admission as a trainee nurse at a hospital. During the depression years this was difficult. Admission to training as a RN was mainly for those who could only work if they pursued a profession. Nursing and Teaching were such professions.

My mum fortunately was asked by a good customer what she wished to do in life and she replied that she was going to night school in order to gain admittance to a hospital to train as a nurse. The customer told her to leave it to him as he was on the board of Wallsend hospital. And so it happened.

She commenced her training as nurse in May 1932, with one other Joan Truscott who remained her friend till Joan’s death a couple of years before my mum who died at 89yrs.

The TGA has banned Ivermectin for dying Covid patients so that people with Scabies can stop the itch. If a doctor in India can be charged with m urder for hiding information into a life saving drug we should be doing it here as well.

New Polling Indicates Conservative Party Support Lowest since 2019 Election
By Rory Cranstoun
10th Sep at 02:50 pm
New polling data from YouGov has revealed that support for the Conservative government under the leadership of Boris Johnson has fallen to levels unseen since the 2019 election, with Sir Kier Starmer’s Labour party taking a two-point lead.

The poll, which comes after the Conservatives’ decision on Tuesday to raise taxes on workers, employers, and investors to support the National Health Service (NHS), saw the party’s support slump five points to 33%, with Labour gaining one point and taking the lead at 35%.

The announcement of a highly controversial 1.25 percentage point increase on national insurance tax broke one of the Prime Minister’s six 2019 election “guarantees” and angered some Tory members. The policy, which some critics are predicting could be disastrous for the party, has undermined the Conservatives’ image of favouring small Government and low taxation.

Speaking on the results of the poll, Anthony Wells, political research director at YouGov, said that people should “be cautious of leaping to too many conclusions from a single poll.”

“But, it looks as if the government may have sacrificed their reputation for low taxes amongst Tory voters without actually getting much credit for helping the NHS.”

Meanwhile, Oliver Dowden, the culture minister, downplayed the results of the poll.

“Opinion polls come and go, what the government is doing is taking the long-term decisions in the national interest. In the end electorates reward governments who are willing to make difficult decisions in order to protect the national interest.”

Winston Churchill’s Namesake Charity Changes Name and Disassociates from the Wartime PM
A charity formerly known as “The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust” has changed its name to the “Churchill Fellowship” and removed all images of the former Prime Minister from its website. It later restored one of the images after both media and public backlash.

My dad sometimes had a dig at mum about here family. Dad was in the police and thought of his side as being in a better class than mums battler parents. Mums dad had done three months for sheep stealing around 1930. I started researching our families when ancestry.com came along, found out that all dads side, men and women were all transported here in the 1830’s, got their tickets and like many then changed their names and moved to Melbourne. Turns out our family name is really Metcalf, told mum and dad, mum was delighted, however dad seemed remarkably uninterested, if I ever bring it up he just changes the subject.

Turns out on one of mums branches there’s an ancestor who was with Bill in 1066, took over English estates and the family was quite wealthy and influential till the late 1700’s, then our branch wandered off to relative poverty and eventually Australia with the Hentys at Portland. Dad wasn’t interested in that either.

Needless to say, none of the titles came down to me, much to the dissapointment of my two sons.

lol, Roger. Hairy and I went back to the manor house near Colchester where my ancient family lived on arrival in England in the early 1600’s, with names of deceased family members, including sad ones of children, on the walls of the family Church (eleventh century) next door. It now belongs to the National Trust. We found records at the Church and later on a website that my uncle, my father’s younger brother whom I never knew, was married there (his second marriage, late in life and that he claimed ‘the ancient title and Arms’ of Count, which the website said he owns but ‘does not use’ in England.

This was when my father was still well and truly alive! Conveniently for his family, he had disappeared into the wilds of Australia in the last months of the Second World War (there’s a story there too). It was clear that his brother in the meantime had done very well in India and then Britain, and obviously sought to rise above his current less-than-middle-class origins for a new and very ‘social’ wedding. He’s dead now and so is his new wife of that marriage. Funnily enough, he was the spitting image of my father. Poor old dad, the ‘real’ Count it seems, was thoroughly dispensible by that time; he’d lost touch and they didn’t really want to know him. He died as a hermit living in a caravan only at the last moved by Big Sis into a nursing home. I only saw my paternal grandparents once, as a four year old child.

Both apparently lived to a ripe old age so I am hoping they at least gifted me that. 🙂

My brother, who would have had a claim to the title, died last year. His son I suppose could still stake a claim to it, but he shows no interest whatsoever in family history. A lad from the Shire, he is happily married, has two sons of his own plus a daughter, and lives a thoroughly Aussie life in a project home, with two cars, a boat and a caravan. What need has he of title, indeed. He is king in his own castle.

lol, sfw. Sheep stealing has a long heritage in the annals of time. During the Victorian period in my lineage there were two brothers. Both were noted sheep stealers, for they were butchers. Both came before the Assizes in the 1830’s and the younger brother got transported to Tasmania, where records advised he ‘be kept away from sheep’ as he stole them there too. My direct ancestor, the older brother, got off. He was stealing on an industrial scale and would thus have implicated too many important fingers in that pie had he been convicted. Such is life and how far do great families also fall.

The Biden administration is preparing to sue Texas over its new law banning most abortions, people familiar with the matter said, an action that would set off a federal-state clash at a time when the future of abortion rights becomes an ever-more-pressing question before the courts.
