Some observations.
U2 are one of the best regardless of their poxy politicking.
Trump won’t go to gaol. But he might get convicted
Monty backpedaling like a clown juggling chainsaws.
Tom Lynch is past his use by date, as Knuckles sez, Collingwood should have won by ten goals plus. Riewoldt the same.
And the best sound in all of humanity is your kid’s laughter.

Oh dear.

If there’s ever such a thing as a junk ODI, it would be South Africa vs the Netherlands.

The cloggies are 4/94, in (according to the commentators I just started listening to) one of their finest moments to date.

The name of the Netherlands bloke who just got out is Scott Edwards. Presumably descended from the stadtholders of the 1300s, such is the tradition associated with that handle.

Surely he could tweak it to Scoot Van Edwarts.

Less than 30 minutes until April 1st ticks over.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my Soul to keep.
If I should die before I ‘wake,
I pray the Lord my Soul to take.

Preach it.

I would refer you to the Local Quenthland version, 25:17:

If I should stand, fight and if necessary fall before I wake,
I pray the Cloive he takes the mentally sick denialists before the coup d’etat, which will be shortly.

Farnham has passed.

He’s with Roger Moore now, in a better place.

Auditioning for the new Bond?

A musical genre about pick up trucks, unfaithful women and old dogs doesn’t have much going for it

This week, “A Hay Plains Truckstop Playlist”, music to listen to in thongs on the shitter. That should leave plenty of scope while getting the punters moist.

My father stayed cleared of LAbor and the unions. Off the first boat after Ww 2 , and thanks Combah (I think that’s right- your ancestors were really brave adventurous and hard working to build this society), he knew he made the right decision to come here.
Worked in salt pans, factories, bricklaying and cleaning, – the one observation was the working class hated him but the middle class liked them.
Why- in the Kelvinator factory in Adelaide he and his friend doubled production.
I found this through out my life – the middle and upper were friendlier to me while the working class were openly hostile .
Gough was the template, bastard bolts with their predijices, the Vietnameses were also put in the same basket as the bastard bolts of south east Asia.
The hoof of the middle classes and labor, good old sectarianism, if you are a Catholic you are a target.
Except when Bob had Paul as treasurer the rest of the time, reflecting on things labor had foisted on us the loonies from the student union.

Transgender terrorist Audrey Hale murdered 6 Christians, including 3 children, at a private Christian school in Nashville earlier this week.

The White House Speaks:

“Our Hearts Go Out to the Trans Community as They Are Under Attack Right Now”

Newspeak.

  1. Headline of the day: The Matildas and Arsenal weapon tasked with filling Kerr-sized hole Fnarrr.

  2. And puts lie to the media’s claim that he held a firearms licence “for recreational purposes”.

  3. The word doing the rounds (as yet unsubstantiated) is a total ban on “recreational” firearm use. Can see a lot…

  4. Outstanding. Just outstanding commentary on the current semitic sentiment in this country. The back end of a Gray Connolly piece…
