Vale Neddie

I am sorry to report That This sites dog Overlord has passed away

NED ON HIS FIRST DAY HOME

After a few years living with Diabetes which saw him lose his sight 3 times and enduring the operations to restore it as well as a couple of bouts of Pancreatitis and the torments of his little brother Neds little body had had enough .He was a champion dog always happy no matter what . Everyone who got to meet Ned loved him . He didnt have a mean bone in his body. In the end it was the hardest decision of my life but as silly as this sounds the easiest. Neddie was going to suffer and he didn,t deserve that. To have kept him going a bit longer would have been unbelievable selfish on my part.

  3. As I keep saying – never underestimate the stupidity of the average Australian voter.

    The voters of Eden-Monaro had a rare opportunity to tell our farce of a government what they thought of a PM who cared more about having a Hawaiian holiday than his duty to be with them in a crisis, promised recovery funding that never existed and has made more promises of funding that will turn out to be lies and yet those fools reward the bastard by giving his party and their more right-wing than Tony Abbott candidate an increased first preference vote – so far.

    It’s dumber than turkeys voting for Christmas.

  4. Ingrid M’s run-down of Insiders –

  5. A very confusing article from Melissa Davey and Matilda Boseley –

    First they quote a spokeswoman from the Victorian health department saying conspiracy theories are not the reason for over 10,000 people refusing tests. Then they go into detail about a conspiracy theory text message being the reason why people are refusing to open their doors to health workers offering tests.

    Covid-19 conspiracy theories not among reasons given for test refusal in Victoria
    Exclusive: department contradicts minister who blamed such theories after 10,000 people declined

    A woman named Ann contacted Guardian Australia to say she had received a text message that purported to be a police bulletin. The text warned against answering the door to door-knockers. It read: “People are going door to door handing out masks, they say it’s a new initiative from local government. They will always ask you to please put it on to see if it fits you.

    “It has been doused with chemicals which knocks you out cold and once you’re knocked out they proceed to rob you. Please do not accept masks from strangers. Remember, we are living in critical times and people are desperate to take advantage with the aim of making money. Crime rate has skyrocketed, so please be cautious and play safe!

    “Please send to all your friends, colleagues and loved ones so as to help them stay vigilant in this adverse situation.” A spokesman for Victoria police said the message had also been widely circulating on social media for some months, long before the lockdown
