    During the last 70yrs this hymn sustained me through many times over many years.

    It tends to recur. I had it again in March, stopped me from going to Posy Parker’s Let Women Speak rally.

    Considering it is Bastille Day and displaying my abundant wealth and snobbishment, I dined tonight on a plate of lamb chops accompanied by a bottle of French Cab Sav Merlot.

    I usually stick with known Aussie brand plonk, but the occasion and label on this bottle intrigued me: Arrogant Frog.

    John Kerry refuses to call China’s Xi Jinping a ‘dictator’

    Shortly after refusing to call the carpet bagging sweaty rat faced olive drab tracksuit clad Z-Man one.

    Nothing if not consistent. For when you’re selling wars, door to door.

    Hairy watching the women’s soccer for the first time tonight. He managed half an hour before giving up. They have no ball skills, he says, though he thinks that’s remediable with the right training. I disagree. We move in different ways, I say. Look – they run like women, I observe, noticing how funny they look too when they fall over at odd angles.
    Even I can see it’s not much of a game compared to the way men play it.

    Time for bed. Hot water bottle. I am not a pensioner but I still like my hottie bottle. Good for any little niggles and aches that arise in the aging frame due to over-enthusiastic dance classes. This thread is going to ‘pass away’ soon. Nite, now.

    Just enough anaesthetic to make me just sleep coz they want to know if the procedure relieves pain straight away. It does. We’ll see how it goes. The duks were excited as a schoolboy discovering a hole in his pocket.

    Janet Albrechtsen certainly deserves an award. But the chances of her getting a Walkley/Wokely/Wankley are less than zero.
