• Yearning for B.C.

    One of my sons-in-law runs a carpet repair business. He has established rules which he hopes will allow him to continue to earn a living. For example, customers can make arrangements to leave their keys in a particular spot so that the repairers can enter and do the job while the occupants either leave home…

  • Mater’s Musings #7: Take a knee…

    Police taking a knee during the BLM Protest, amidst restrictions: Police taking a knee during yesterday’s ‘Freedom’ protest: What struck me strange whilst watching a replay of the Nine News live feed of the event was how many of the rolling comments reflected this thought (or something similar): OMG, Morons! They are just giving Dan…

  • Guest Post: MatrixTransform on Abundance

    They don’t expect you to swallow the big lie; they just want you to accept the small ones … for now. Bundled together and streamed from near on every media station is a big smorgasbord of apparent ‘facts’, ‘science’ and self-serving opinion. The poor old punter who is a plumber, schoolteacher, architect, or whatever, can’t…

  • Mater’s Musing #6: A General Recommendation

    GENERAL RECOMMENDATION That, as far as possible, the people be encouraged during the course of the epidemic to take all possible advantage of fresh air as a means of increasing the natural resistance to infection, and of lessening the risk of infection, and also to avoid crowds.

  • Soviet psychiatry comes to Australia

    New vaccines have a 98% failure rate after 10 full years in development. How can more than a dozen COVID vaccines possibly be ready for prime time? Found here with an interesting video also at the link. On the one hand virtually no one is dying from Covid. On the other hand, there are potentially serious…

  • Get vaccinated, still die, don’t question

    I subscribe to the UK Telegraph. Supposedly conservative. Its readers seem to be at any rate. This email headline came through this morning: “Majority of under-50s of people who died [in England] with the delta variant were unvaccinated.” That means that a distinct minority who died were fully vaccinated. In fact, twenty-four percent. That seems…

  • Mater’s Musings #5: 1 Year, 4 Months and 21 Days too late

    I received this unsolicated SMS message on Thursday. Apparently it went out to 287,000 ‘Veterans’, everyone on DVA’s books and not limited to those who served there. It’s a nice touch, I guess, but in my opinion, it addresses the wrong event and is 508 days too late. I didn’t sign up to make or…

  • Trump discusses Afghanistan

    This was Donald Trump speaking to Sean Hannity on August 18. Only 6772 views, it says, which is an example of just how powerful and deceitful the media in America now are. Part of the text. This is the greatest embarrassment in the history of our country….  Biden put us in this position. He should…

  • Naughty, naughty Victoria

    This really is over the top. Who is he to get angry? What is he getting angry about? Does he get angry if people catch a cold? From The Herald-Sun: ANGRY DAN WARNS RULES MAY TIGHTEN.  Mr Andrews said the spike in Victoria’s cases was “a very significant challenge, making today a bad day. “I…
