I thought today is as good a day as any to honour our furry companions.Pets are fantastic. They are always happy to see us,never judge,make us laugh and sometimes sadly make us cry. They care not about politics,terrorists,the economy or the state of the world,they care about us. Sometimes we may get angry with them, they never do when we do far stupider things than their little mistakes . They keep us company, comfort us when we are feeling blue and share in our joy when we are happy.

Our furry friends as you know are loved by both of us and they give back soo much more than we give to them

Starting with Ned The Boss


Neddy is the best natured dog I know. Never complains ,never demands Is quite happy to sleep and eat Chicken sticks

SYD on the other hand

Is the happy energizer dog. If he could find someone that would throw balls to him all day he would be in Heaven. Loves his mum

The feline part of our family consists of KIRRA


Our 14 year old ginger and white girl who is having a little trouble with her thyroid at the moment. Used to beat up syd all the time but loves Neddy.


Phoebe is our quiet one who sleeps and eats, and that’s about it. I almost Killed Phoebe when she was about 2 by running her over. Luckily she moved just enough and her tail was the only part of her damage. Sadly she had to have about a quarter of her tail removed. Not sure if she and the OH. have forgiven me yet..


WE also have about 15 goldfish ,assorted lizards,,birds and other wildlife that have been  deemed unable to feed themselves naturally that OH has adopted.

So Cheers to our furry and other  friends.

Post a pic of your Pets past and present  Give them the fame they deserve. Email either my self or Fiona if you are having troubles posting  and we will gladly do it for you.Enjoy

  1. Thank you for noticing my absence.

    I hope it wasn’t that I’m on the list

  2. joe6pack,

    And good luck from me as well.

    I guess it is just a reminder that you and I, immortal as we are, have to suffer a few slings and arrows.

  3. “the hoi polloi”

    So that would be “the the many”?

    Hoi polloi (Ancient Greek: οἱ πολλοί, hoi polloi, “the many”), is an expression from Greek that means the many or, in the strictest sense, the majority.

  4. Christmas Island: Reports of riot following detainee’s death; claims guards have left detention centre; Immigration confirms ‘disturbance’

    . . . New Zealand Labour MP Kelvin Davis said he had been told detainees had “taken over the detention centre”.

    “I’m hearing that the guards have exited the detention centre, that fences have been torn down and that detainees in the segregated area are mixing with the mainstream detainees,” he told the ABC. . .

    Mr Davis said detainees on the island had told him they were angry about what they believed was a “cover-up” of the truth about how the man died.

    He said he hoped authorities negotiated with the detainees to restore order rather than responding violently.

    “They [the detainees] are really worried for their lives,” he said.

  5. Thanks for the well wishes. I am sure It will all work out fine. Another distinguished scar will be no problem I am just hoping it all gets done in one go.Its a chilly rainy day here so I have nothing much else to do anyway.

  6. 48 hours until D-Day: Brisbane man Ricardo Bolvaran faces deportation to Chile

    Ricardo Bolvaran’s parents and grandparents fled Chile in 1974 when Ricardo was one year old, escaping the brutality of the Pinochet regime for a new life in Australia.

    Now 41 and a recovering ice addict, the father of three was given a choice between Christmas Island or deportation to the South American nation of his birth, following his incarceration for offences largely committed at the height of his drug addiction.

    Mr Bolvaran was told on 31 August, while still at the Brisbane Correctional Centre, that his residency visa had been cancelled under the Migration Act, with his offences meaning he no longer passed the character test.

    Raised in Australia, and with three sons to his partner of nearly a quarter of a century, Rachel Delucia, Mr Bolvaran lacked the funds to continue to challenge the immigration ruling.

  7. Julia Gillard donates MBA to Cosmopolitan magazine

    Gillard, in her role as Chancellor of Ducere, has donated a fully-funded MBA and Bachelor degree to the glossy ahead of its annual Women of the Year awards.

    The former PM who has been busy on the international public speaking circuit with like-minded education enthusiast Michelle Obama will be a special guest at Cosmopolitan’s annual lunch this month. She will also be inducted into the Fun, Fearless Female Hall of Fame.

    “Throughout her time in office she championed women’s education and continues to do so. You don’t ask, you don’t get so after three minutes talking with her advisers about the awards she was on board,” editor Bronwyn McCahon said.

    “It will be an honour to have her there, RVSPs have been coming in like crazy. These aren’t awards to celebrate people that are always in the public eye, it’s about honouring women who are game changes and from all walks of life.”

  8. Further to TPP.

    Our few remaining rights will be revoked. The assault on the ecosystem will be accelerated. Banks and global speculation will be beyond oversight or control. Food safety standards and regulations will be jettisoned. Public services ranging from Medicare and Medicaid to the post office and public education will be abolished or dramatically slashed and taken over by for-profit corporations. Prices for basic commodities, including pharmaceuticals, will skyrocket. Social assistance programs will be drastically scaled back or terminated. And countries that have public health care systems, such as Canada and Australia, that are in the agreement will probably see their public health systems collapse under corporate assault.

  9. Russia, a major oil producer, is seen as a deal-maker or breaker in the years-long attempt to negotiate the world’s first truly universal pact to rein in global warming by curbing climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions. Russia is the fifth biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, after China, the United States, the European Union and India, according to the US think tank the World Resources Institute.


  10. When the yanks are saying the TPP is so much worse than they feared it would be then we should be really, really worried.

    So far St Malcolm the Obscenely Rich has said very little about it, except for a bit of waffle about it being great for Australian jobs. He has also spewed out the usual lies about there being no changes to the PBS or the cost of prescription medicines here.

    He would not have read it of course. He admitted he had not read the China FTA, just ‘summaries’ with some chats to Robb about it. So why would he have bothered with any of the TPP. Lazy bastard.

  11. I bet he is lying his sorry arse off

    Labor asks Peter Dutton for an update on Christmas Island. He makes the following points.

    It commenced just after 11pm last night.

    There is no women and children present.

    Serco has responsibility for negotiating and dealing with those causing a disturbance.

    A total of 203 detainees are there.

    If people have caused damage to commonwealth property, they will be investigated and prosecuted.

    In regard to Fazel Chegeni’s death:

    I’m advised there are no suspicious circumstances in relation to the death.
