Get Checked

A public service post so to speak.

Skin cancer is all to common in our Australian society.Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that if you have one a simple small nick or freeze  will fix it.

This little spot on my upper lip  will result in me adding another scar, and there is a few<  to my pretty face. From my nostril in a triangular cut down through my lip to hopefully cut out all of the bad stuff. 2 years ago  it was noticed and the treatment was to just freeze it. If a biopsy had of been preformed then it would have been  a simple stitch or 2 now  I hope all I will end up with is lips lined up and a small scar and no more further surgery.

I know that this is in the lower scale of cancers but untreated can be serious . So If you have a spot ask for a biopsy hurts like hell on your face but worth it.

Get skin checks  takes a little time and can save you much drama.

Plus the blog is financial again for another year .

  2. A very close encounter. The Cassini space craft zoomed over Saturn’s moon Enceladus at an altitude of 50 km.

    David Pocock has a world cup very shortly but he still has time to have a shot at the NE. Oh and who has he asked to come to the big match ? David Attenborough, Built like a gorilla but definitely more evolved than the simian EXpm.

    Tony Abbott denies the core of his faith when he says “love thy neighbour” excludes refugees. My col for #thedrum

    @bairdjulia you must’ve missed the translation that says, “love thy (white) neighbour”…

  4. Every day there is more evidence that Turnbull is exactly like Abbott. The only difference being Abbott made his racist, fascist comments himself while Turnbull allows his ministers to do it for him while he sits back, smirks and says nothing.

    Another thing St Malcolm has not said a word about –

    A minor happening in which a school showed great understanding and respect, things Morrison will never understand. Not a word from Turnbull, not a squeak.

    I read an article on him and that tweet. He also refuses to marry his girlfriend until everyone can get married. He chained himself to a tree in protest of CSG. I’d never heard of him until a couple of days ago, but I could easily find myself liking him.

  6. hey, Fiona!!…Why don’t you stick that post of mine ..: ‘The LNP. and a Habit of treason” up as a main post?…That’ll liven the bastards up a tad!!…good for a laugh.

  7. We all knew Abbott’s visit to Eddie Mabo’s grave on Mer Island was just a stunt, but the local women hoped a promise would be kept. Trusting Abbott was a big mistake, believing Turnbull would honour that promise is an even bigger mistake.

    The women of Mer Island say Mr Abbott assured them of a response to the letter within a fortnight.

    But within weeks of his departure the self-proclaimed “Prime Minister for Indigenous Affairs” was ousted from the top job, replaced by Malcolm Turnbull.

    It has now been two months, and the women who carefully crafted the message are wondering if they wasted their time

    ‘Don’t forget us’: Residents on remote Mer Island call on Malcolm Turnbull to honour Tony Abbott’s commitment

  8. Funny that J Baird is NOW criticising Abbott. Shouldn’t she have a go at Turnbull instead? Or doesn’t she criticise PMs except J Gillard?

  9. ” The latest thing allows you to work lying down.”…awww..that’s as old as the “oldest profession” !

  10. Turnbull is just Ted Baillieu on a bigger stage. Baillieu’s about as bland and un-newsworthy as they come, and under him the Liberals were just kind of accepted as an inevitability. He did pretty well in a disengaged Victoria, until people started to realise that he wasn’t doing anything, and asked the question, “What’s the point?” His polls drifted down, and he was replaced.

    That’s more or less what I expect to happen to Turnbull. Still in the first flush right now. He’s about as ‘blank slate’ as someone of his standing can be. We still have to go through the “Well, he’s there anyway so he might as well stay” phase before it all falls apart. An election will likely focus people’s minds.

  11. As far as Abbott’s concerned, he got there in the first place because nobody new anything about what he might be like as a leader. That turned out to be the one and only thing in his favour. His message from the start seemed to be “don’t concern yourselves with me, worry about the other mob.”

    He can’t do that any more, we all know all about him. We gave him his go, and we stunk at it. He can play Machiavelli all he likes, it won’t get him anywhere.

  12. Seven locations make nuclear waste dump shortlist

    I have no problem with Australia storing its own nuclear waste. A safe facility in a remote area would be far better than the current option – sticking it in drums in a shed at Lucas Heights. I just don’t trust this government to get it right though. And it looks like the thin end of the wedge. Get storage up and running then go ahead with Turnbull’s plan to dig up more uranium, process it here, lease the fuel rods to anyone who wants them and then bring the left-overs back here for storage.

    Old report on the same issue, explaining why those fuel rods are on their way back from France.

  13. Expect to have to keep explaining to people with deaf ears that Turnbull is just the same as Abbott. Nobody will believe it until one day when it suddenly becomes common knowledge. There’s been a certain amount of emotion invested in Turnbull, especially from the ‘soft right’. Those people still want a pat on the back because Abbott’s gone. For the moment they’re not interested in being told that they’re once again deluded. They’ll fight for a bit.

    But the day will come when they catch themselves defending conditions on Nauru for the umpteenth time, or trying to explain away the rising unemployment rate, or some attack on welfare. Or some other atrocity. They won’t admit anything, but they will quietly question what on earth they thought they were going to get from this man, and why it hasn’t eventuated, and then without any fanfare they’ll withdraw their Turnbull-love.

  14. Aguirre
    Just what I think about Turnbull. He is going to try to bore voters into a trance.

    That’s why it is important to keep up with what’s going on rather than sitting back, saying ‘Thank heavens Abbott has gone’ and falling asleep.

    Turnbull’s problem is there were such high expectations. All that ‘when will Turnbull make a move’ stuff that had gone on for a year or more, all that ‘things will be different when Turnbull is leader’ crap. Turnbull was expected to work miracles, to charge in, throw out the government’s climate change policies, close off-shore detention centres, restore Gonski and so much more. Why anyone would thing that has always been a mystery. He was a flop as LOTO and useless in his communications portfolio. Turnbull’s undoing will come from the collapse of all that hope he would be ‘different’ as people realise they have been taken for fools.

    Right now all the focus is on what he will say in Paris. Those high expectations again. I hope when Turnbull gets up and tells the world Australia is sticking with Direct Action and will be opening up more coal mines the scales will finally fall from a lot of eyes.

    The moral of the story is don’t turn a wealthy fop into a hero just because he made a pretty speech when Whitlam died.

  15. A lot of the support for Turnbull in the polls is coming from Labor supporters. If you hang out on Twitter you will have seen that support and will have noticed where it was coming from. It has become almost trendy to trash talk Shorten and demand his resignation. I expect all that to change when an election campaign begins.

    Turnbull might be doing well in the preferred PM polling, but that high level of approval is not transferring to a high Coalition 2PP. Labor supporters might think he is a better PM. but that does not mean they will vote for this government come an election.

  16. I don’t think Dutton has read the Amnesty International report. Ministers in this government don’t read reports. Neither did Abbott. I wonder if AllBull can be bothered with reports? Probably not. He’d be too busy colour coordinating the teacups in his office or posing at his standing desk to have time for trivia like reports critical of his government.

    The report is long and detailed. I read it, it took ages, Dutton’s attention span would be so short he’d make a goldfish look like a professor. There’s no way he would have read even the first page.

  17. It has become almost trendy to trash talk Shorten and demand his resignation

    Especially true over the road (my first look at an opinion poll thread in god knows how long basically reinforced why I stopped looking at the site).

  18. Leonie, I agree with you that Allbull (with the sweet smile and the beguiling voice that drones on sprouting nothings) does not read Reports. His dismissal of the open letter calling for o new coal mines to be opened ANYWHERE was an example of this. He replied that if Australia didn’t open new mines, other countries would. But that wasn’t what the letter was about. Didn’t Allbull wonder why the letter was going to Paris as well as Canberra?

  19. Some comment on Turnbull’s mistakes about coal mines.

    It’s along the same lines as the comments by Dr Richard Dennis, at Crikey the other day, posted here in full earlier but here’s the link again It’s a free article, I think.

    Some bonus reading, the ABC’s Fact Check – Was the cost of cutting emissions 100 times greater under Labor?

    No matter how much fact is put about Turnbull and Hunt keep pushing the same old lies. Just how stupid do they think we are?

  20. Another quality Liberal . Good thing that- “He is part of the official “Mainstream Conservative” ticket …” and not an ‘out there’ nut .

    Liberal candidate Dr Alan Sexton mocks ‘inbred Arab brain’ in Facebook post

    The inbred Arab brain seeks domination and wants to be bullied,” his post says.

    Dr Sexton has also posted that US President Barack Obama is of “Islamic faith” – a demonstrably false claim made by local extreme right wing political groups – and attacks the United Nations as “a corrupt, incompetent and godless institution”……Dr Sexton said there was “some controversy about his birth certificate” and that he had “placed a lot of senior Islamic people into senior positions in the United States”

    Featured on its literature as endorsing the ticket are former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, NSW Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, state MPs Tanya Davies, Kevin Conolly and state MLC Scot Macdonald.

    How charming. And the excuses – amazing.

    He explained that he has made comment because of "anxiety" about Middle East violence and because he was in an emotional state after the shooting of police worker Curtis Cheng by radicalised teenager Farhad Jabar in Parramatta

    ‘Emotional’ is just a euphemism for ‘blind drunk’ or ‘stoned out of one’s mind’. Has the doctor been indulging in substances he pinched from the hospital? You wouldn’t want him anywhere near you in the operating theatre, would you.

  22. “Had we known then what we know now, we would’ve had the gates shut Monday night,” a spokesperson said.

    She said the decision not to act had already inflicted untold suffering on Europeans. “We’re fundamentally weakened,” she said.

    One European leader said the imperative to ‘love thy neighbour’ had backfired. “It was misguided altruism. If only we’d listened to Tony Abbott before he actually got here, we could have stopped this,” he said.

    He has asked Mr Abbott to fax through his speech next time, rather than making the trip across.

  23. I love the way all this satirical efforts are throwing Abbott’s own words and actions back at him. Faxing his speech next time – fantastic!

  24. Wonderful! The Liberals are fighting among themselves again – or still.

    Peter Dutton’s attack on Amnesty International draws fire from his own side

    Liberal elder Philip Ruddock has distanced himself from Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s attack on Amnesty International, saying he has “a lot of time” for the human rights organisation.

    Mr Ruddock is the longest-serving MP in Parliament and a long-time supporter of Amnesty, despite being at odds with it during his own stint as immigration minister in the Howard government and at one point being asked to stop wearing his Amnesty lapel badge

    Whatsisname, that rich bloke who says he is now PM, has had nothing to say about the report or about this infighting. Not a word. He’s too busy trying to work out the perfect spot on his desk for his wedding anniversary gift inkwell.. An inkwell! Ye gods and little fishes! How wanky is that! Does he use a quill when he writes?

    Don’t believe me?

  25. Why has it taken me so long to discover this wonderful site?

    The extensive work undertaken by the previous leadership to stamp out science in Australia may have come undone, with reports suggesting the scourge may have been reintroduced.

    Several media outlets have reported the emergence of a new chief scientist – a tell tale sign that science may be about to wreak havoc across the continent once again.

    Read it all – side-splitting!

  26. Further migrant disaster coming up in s-e Europe over the next 5 months or so.

    People still leaving Turkey.

    It will be very cold in places like Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia to be walking around with no proper protection from the cold.
