Xmas is over

Well Tragics, Xmas time is over and Pb will resume tommorow.

This little blog will not disappear,it will still be here with a new post every week or so and maybe more surprises.

It will be a haven for you people that wish to have a break from the argy-bargy of pb,and just want to have a bit of a chat.

Talk about Politics,  Cricket,Tennis,Wildlife,Trucks,Aviation,etc, put up a you tube link or photo, whatever.

The overriding  theme will always be the political scene in Australia and especially the 2013 Federal election.

The same rules will always apply

Treat other posters how you would wish to be Treated.

    The IVF timing is ominous. I am inclined to agree with Andrew Elder. It is an exit strategy for Credlin when everything goes pear shaped for Abbott. The Brough/Ashby stuff is going to bite them in the bum, and Credlin knows it.

  2. Thanks Vic. Given a choice between Mumble and Andrew Elder I decided to follow my confirmation bias to Elder 🙂 Great Article and here is the link again for those who want to read it…

    If Elder is right then Peta should leave while the Libs are still ahead in the polls.

  3. What’s interesting is how seriously Abbott and the Libs are taking the women’s vote.

    OK, he’s tanked with women. Always has. Still leading in the polls though, and will always get the angry middleclass white male vote.

    Could it be that, come election time, in at least a significant number of households, men vote the way they’re told to?

    (Vivid memories of a friend of mine – US citizen, so couldn’t vote – winding down her window and shouting after her spouse as he went into vote – “If you vote for f##ing Kennett, I’m never sleeping with you again!”)

  4. Zoomster,

    (Vivid memories of a friend of mine – US citizen, so couldn’t vote – winding down her window and shouting after her spouse as he went into vote – “If you vote for f##ing Kennett, I’m never sleeping with you again!”)

    The only problem is – how would she have known?

  5. andrew has not wavered in his thoughts and the heading at the top of the page, its great to see some one with conviction,
    that’s the writers one reads.
    i was told by a friend of a friend that a friends has
    left her employment to concentrace on ivf
    to work in the family business so it one of those things work on some days and not others of her choice
    now thats quite a different way of organazing ones life

    putting a future family and togetherness first

    also from what little i know
    if one takes on a relaxed life style, and that doesnt mean sitting around all day, it means less stressful perhaps working part time
    like my friends friend plans to do.

    this is the advice i would give any one thinking about this
    it not easy lots of steps along the way, lots of appointments
    and encouragment to keep going

    this is of couse passed on to me by my friends, friend
    who is 40

  6. [The IVF timing is ominous.]

    Tim should tell someone from the Press that his Beagle requires ‘sperm stimulation’ and that JG has been good enough to let him use an Office ‘fridge because the Lodge ‘fridge is turned off due to the renovations.


  7. I hope Mumble has be watching ABC24 for the past hour or so. Every sound grab and visual of Gillard in Tasmania looks like she has become very competent and comfortable in the role.

  8. reading all that i take the other opinon than they proably want me to do

    i think ivf is rather private and in family , so i am not impressed
    i think many woman would think that way and the unmarried not worried about having family may think how odd
    discussing this,
    and the rest dont care
    so i dont see it being very favourable,
    think it shows they live in bubble, not really knowing what us woman think at all

  9. i dont give mumble a second thought,

    yes julia looked great and so so sincere
    i read what the other one said cannot remmeber now
    i tried to post it.
    my lap top doesn not want to copy links

  10. Janice,

    Peta must have a plan b exit strategy …

    I wouldn’t wish that particular exit strategy on anyone.

  11. janice
    i have observed that some people spend so much time together

    they end up sounding like they, whom they spend time with, and even begin to look like them.

  12. seems like nsw is in for some really bad not weathre
    i watched the premier nodding behind lots of officials

    the areas where named i did put a link here to the nsw fire service

  13. Compare & contrast:

    Senator Conroy’s wife had fertility problems, so the couple had a surrogate pregnancy, which at the time was illegal in Victoria.

    AFTER the pregnancy resulted in a successful birth (and an incredibly cute kid, btw) Conroy – a Catholic – agitated for the laws in Victoria to be changed — not just to give couples like his own the same opportunity, but also on behalf of gays/lesbians.

    He used his political clout to solve a situation his personal experience had brought to his attention.

    Peta Credlin has fertility problems. She uses them for political advantage, to help shore up her boss. There is no hint there that her personal experience gave her any insight into how the situation might be improved for others in similar situations, or that she’d be interested in doing anything about it if it did.

    Labor people use their life experiences to help solve problems; Liberals use them to promote their own self interest.
