And the following isn’t entirely impossible …

  4. Jaycee,

    Gorgeous Dunny,


    The link on the other thread is now working (a case of more haste less speed plus a failure to check on moi’s part – slaps wrist with small piece of lettuce leaf) – thank you, CK, for putting up the correct link.

  6. Hey everyone.

    NBN keeps on moving backwards and now Optus is moving in for the kill:

    Got a call from my friend in California—because too many crims are stealing hydrocone (Vicodine) tablets a law was passed so that a new script is needed every time. My poor friend and her (paid) caregiver presented to the pharmacy with a repeat, told it was no good, caregiver, bless her, said “we are going to the {expletive deleted} oncologist, barge in and get a new prescription. Which they did, a nurse at the nursing station prepared a prescription and got the oncologist to sign it.

    All well, but nurse wrote out a prescription for 100 Vicodin instead of 180 so my friend cut them all in half and will nurse them to the next oncologist appointment by using a bit more of the much stronger dilaudin(?)

    All through this my friend had to lug a big tank of oxygen, her small cannisters of oxygen no longer enough.

    Ahh, the glamor of smoking!

    God I could cheerfully murder tobacco executives in lots of 100, just give me the machine gun and a brick wall!

    I am so proud of the Leadership shown by PM Gillard and Health Minister then AG Nicola Roxon on getting the Plain Packaging laws through the Parliament. I know lots less kids take up the brutish habit of smoking because of it and I cannot wait until Ireland and France introduce similar laws, followed by the UK.

    Please—use any info above to discourage anyone you know from taking up smoking.

  7. Ian,
    You must have looked or smelled a tad suspicious. Whatever, I hope this takes away the pain:

    BSA Bob,

  8. Message from BK:

    Here is Logan at 9.5 months (6 months corrected age). Maybe the PUB would like to see it.

    Definitely – thank you!

  9. By the way.
    A war or three back, I read this update of Marx’ dictum-

    History repeats itself twice.
    First as tragedy, second as farce, & thirdly as American foreign policy.

  10. For those who missed my wise words at 1 AM, apropos the bastardry of the WA Opera woman; who wouldn’t want to smoke a cigarette made by Julia Migenes?

  11. I’ll take three of the most convenient and a drop of port with a long pot of tea (Earl Grey, hot, black, with lemon if you got it)

    And a TimTam or two, or (better for me) a couple of those huge macadamia & white chocolate polluted Anzac biscuits?

  12. CK,

    Only guessing but they are doing repeats at peak hours on Saturday nights so I’d say pretty soon.

  13. TLBD I just googled it and in pommyland they are in the last two weeks of the series (of 10 eps) so soon we hope.

  14. My goodness BK, hasn’t Logan grown! (and has it really been that long? it seems like just the other day …)

    Thanks again for the numbers CK! *crosses fingers*
