Join in for all you users and we will grow and improve that as we go along. I am in the process of trying to link it to the main blog so bear with me on that.
On Another note are there any rugby league supporters that would be interested in joining a footy tipping competition? IF I get enough takers I’ll set something up,Same goes for the AFL.
If we get a comp.up and running I.ll work out a prize for the winner at the end of the season .

In any event, we shall know soon enough if the govt have any major announcement.
Good night, victoria!
I’m calling it a night too. 🙂
Thanks for that, C@tmomma. Just for that, a nice romantic one
Good night, gorgeous dunny. 🙂
Damn. Try again
It didn’t work, gorgeous dunny! 😀
Yes, Good Night from me, too.
That’s better! 🙂
I did warn people that I am in an elegaic mood tonight.
Two decades ago I started attending my local Anglican church, mostly because the quality of music there was surprisingly good. At the time the choir was all male. However, a few months after I began attending their one and only male alto became a bass (and a very fine bass he is, too).
The choir director asked if I would join the choir, but “only until they found a proper alto”.
I had done a lot of choral singing in my youth, and enjoyed getting back into it. Two of the highlights for me were singing evensong on the first Sunday of each month – always a traditional setting like Purcell, Byrd, or Tallis or (horror – not v keen on 19th century slush) Stanford. Only the adult members of the choir sang evensong, and though it was never a well-attended service (the choir often outnumbered the congregation) there was something special about having our voices spiralling up into the vaulted ceiling.
The other highlight – this time only once a year (on the third Sunday in Advent) – was when I, as the lone alto, sang the solo in Orlando Gibbons’ anthem This is the Record of John:
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
I am watching the Showjumping from Hong Kong. Some nice horses there.
All I can say for sure about the announcement on Sunday is that whatever it is, it’ll be spun as bad, in order to follow the #1 cardinal rule of Australian political coverage: If Gillard says or does it, its wrong.
Would you care for a small muscat?
Or if it is a good idea, the ALP can’t do it properly.
Yes please, a small muscat would be nice, a double muscat would be doubly nice. Any cheese?
I watch a movie and everyone’s gone.IT’s pretty clear they got MArkKenny in on a contract from NEws to run the Ruddstoration Bureau at Fairfax.
What a tosser.
He deserves to be laughed out of town.
Someone ought to tap him on the shoulder and tell him it’s over.
I don’t do much good with posting images. I need the help of the Editting Elves.
This should do us nicely:
Yum yum …
I am just glad he has gone from Adelaide.
Puff and I are having muscat and cheese. You are welcome to join us.
i brought some King Island Roaring Forties Blue.
This goes rather well with the Piano Hill Cheddar:
and we could polish this off for afters …
That quince paste is to swoon for, and the ice-cream…
Do you think we will get nightmares, eating such luscious things so late?
Fiona, Only if we run out of them. Now that is a nightmare.
Since BB seems to have disappeared I think we will be alright!
I will have to seek my basket soon too. So glad that you like the sofa 😉
I’m half still here,but off to sleep soon.
Anne Summers, at least, sticks up for the PM. She doesn’t like the mockers.
Rude, crude and unattractive, and wanker Kenny is one of the principal offenders along with Fairfax “first class brand” Peter Hartcher (the editor of the SMH was on ABC radio this afternoon saying how wonderful Hartcher is and how much space he’ll be given in the new format paper).
I never thought I’d say this but the SMH and The Age are now even worse than The Australian.
News has some residual respect for the woman, but Fairfax has clearly made a decision to be a thuggish as possible.
Anyways, it won’t be long now. I confidently predict that, after an initial curiosity spurt, the laughingly terms “compact” version of the paper will die a thousand deaths.
The editor bloke sounded FAR too shrill about its chances. It’s a career terminator for him if he believes punters buy their crappy rag for Peter Hartcher’s rubbish.
Goodnight anyone else.
I can see them all sitting around in the smugglers’ cave.
“I got in a haul of cigarettes. I put a real bottom in a false case. Worked a treat.”
“You call that smoogling? I put 10 gallons of 90% proof in the bull-bar of me trook. Care for a drink? What about you, mate.”
“I had a bit of a problem. You see, I was in Gatwick with 94 kilograms of dried caterpillars…”
94kg? 60+kg of excess baggage fees?!
I think these are the critters, called (inaccurately) as Mopane worms.
(The sub-editor responsible for the stray “as” has been sacked.)
I’m not overly keen on pate, but having been served some of this as an in-flight snack with crackers, I discovered it is utterly delicious:
(Hopefully the image works this time.)
(Sigh.) It was Maggie’s Duck, Sherry and Green Peppercorn Pate.
Good morning Dawn Patrollers.
A WHOLE WEEK AND THE ONLY UNAMBIGUOUS THING THAT CREDLIN’S CREATURE DID WAS TO SUPPORT MORRISCUM AND ARFUR. NICE.
Cop this Morriscum, you creep!
Lenore Taylor goes in strong on the creep and Abbott’s support of him.
Mike Carlton has HAD ENOUGH! This is a MUST READ.
Alan Moir conflates fiscal policy with the Warramgamba dam.
David Pope’s “Bushwhackers”.
And from the Land of the Free –
This is scary.
Section 2 . . .
Some cartoons on the sequester.
Another enlightened Repug.
Surely this guy (Pat Robertson) is certifiably insane!
Good morning everyone.
Congratulations Janice, you’ve won a date with BB tomorrow night. You do know you can’t take any of your cows or calves with you, don’t you? Have a great time and a full report Monday morning will be a pleasure to read. 🙂
Glad you had a good report about your eyes, and thanks heaps for your links, will read them when I get back from shopping.
I’m feeling very sorry for myself this morning. I won something for the first time in my life (albeit because I was the only one in it), and yet I lose because I can’t collect and enjoy my prize. 😦 I live 40kms from the nearest railway station and even if I got there it would mean an overnight stay and I have the responsibility of two dogs, two cats and chooks. Woe is me 😥
Wish lived nearby to help get you over to Western Sydney somehow,
I have been saying for ages that Fairfax is more feral that News on the PM.
Btw last night’s discussion included the possibility of a second airport.
Mark Kenny had written this up yesterday. Fwiw he says no major stuff on the horizon
[If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, on what substrate is the long path to the federal election based? Great ideas? Thought bubbles?
Grand infrastructure projects previously deemed worthy but unaffordable are perfect candidates for a fiscally-starved election environment where the game is reduced to seeking credit for the announcement rather than actually delivering on the policy.]

Vic, it is funny in a bizarre way. My friends in Adelaide regard Mark as the (relatively) ‘good’ Kenny, but that is compared with Chris Kenny who is off the planet. He’s still pretty woeful.
Anyone looks good compared to Chris Kenny!!
It was a moment of wishful thinking that set me up for this big disappointment 🙂 The problem I have is this end because public transport is non-existent. It happens to be the downside of living alone out in the never never.
Maybe those in Western Sydney wouldn’t whinge as much and be a bit more grateful for what they have if spent a couple of years out in the sticks.
If we cant dare to dream, what is the point of it all. 🙂
Janice, it seems that being “a bit more grateful for what they have” is something that John Howard convinced one and all that that was the promised land he was leading them into: the Rich (who needed no convincing), the Middle Class (who thought, ‘now that’s a good idea’) and the Battlers (who decided that they might as well join in the scramble).
And as for the homeless and the downtrodden, well it’s their fault, isn’t it, or so say Howard’s heirs, the Abbots and Morrison’s of the world.
True, but smashed dreams have consequences and I’ve reached the age now when I’d rather not suffer them. 🙂
At least the weather is cool and wet.
On re-reading that, I reckon I was being a little Delphic.
I meant to write that according to the Gospel of Howard we were all told not to be grateful for what we had but to demand MORE. Whether we were rich or poor or in between we were entitled to more, we were entitled to what that other bloke or sheila had. What is mine is mine and what is yours is mine too.
I think I made myself clear this time.
Thank the Great Spaghetti Monster for the Pub and for people like Janice
