Trump has written off the TPP. I was never a supporter of it so I'm chuffed but it seems others in the pacific are going it alone. We already have a pre trade agreement with the US which was done during the Howard years and Trump would be an idiot to change that. We also have in place bilateral trade agreements with Asian countries .......So why the TPP?
Exciting weekend. At least a million fans or even more crowded round to hear me speak despite the dreadful weather. Rain rain rain, but when I walked out onto the podium the clouds parted, sunshine bathed the entire scene and every one of the attendees distinctly heard the Genuine Voice Of God announce that I was his favorite son and he was pretty pleased with how I was doing. The crowd roared its approval, I finished the speech with a distinct and visible halo which hasn't even started to fade... [Read More]
I normally have a rule not to nap after 1 in the afternoon.
I rarely nap because it stuffs around with my sleeping pattern . Hence why I'm not in bed at half past eleven at night and bored witless out of my brains.
I did some gardening for mum today in the heat and being in Melbourne I'm missing the eventual cool breeze of the ocean around three in the afternoon. Its so oppressive the heat. So what do I do ? nap at three in the afternoon. My sleeping pattern is now out of... [Read More]
Apparently we're all boat people this year.......Inclusive? Well I didn't see any convicts. it's all so nicey nicey!
and we've still got academics speaking of white supremacy. I remember a few years back critisizing a couple of you for talking about how your suburbs were becoming less white and overcrowded and there was controversy over a white person not allowed to walk down... [Read More]
These quizzes are never what you'd call overly scientific so take it with a grain of salt. I really didn't know what to expect and my results indicate that my political views fall most in line with France! Didn't see that coming!
Okay, moving right along ... my other top four were... [Read More]
This post started when I replied to a PM from magentaflame and was expanded on in detail in a reply to Betty Boop.
Things seem so bad to me with brexit and trump that I've been very negative on here so far and feel a need for some positivity; also there are some things you just want to shout from the rooftops. No houses here, so consider this as coming from the top of the Forum Garden shed ... [Read More]
The Inauguration of the US President as I understand it is usually a celebration of democracy. This one is a celebration of corruption and Russian hacking if not blackmail. I gather the entertainment will be 1 Rockette and a few runners up in talent shows. Not one major currently performing star wants to be associated with this POTUS. Not one. Respect to them all.
I gather the boycott is gathering pace, but have no idea how many will join it. I've heard about 20 Democrats won't go... [Read More]
I think he should have pardoned her, but, oh well, this is better than nothing. Unfortunately, I think by doing this Obama is also sending a message to Snowden that had he been willing to face the music this would probably have been his fate as well. Though how could Snowden predict that given that Obama's administration was so aggressive toward whistleblowers in general. If Obama wouldn't pardon Manning I don't see him doing so for Snowden.
Until this week I'd never seen an episode of Open All Hours. This was probably because when it came out in the late seventies I was but recently married, and it's never been re-broadcast since.
It has Ronnie Barker in it and a startling procession of aggressive women. The humour is primarily focused around the script but it wouldn't be anywhere as near as funny if they weren't so skilled at acting. They're an ensemble of a quality one rarely finds.
"sky arts" "Urban Myths" jackson taylor brando "Ben Palmer" "written by Neil Forsyth"
That was my search string.
There has developed a trend whereby a writer makes up a fiction and pretends it relates history. Regardless of how many warnings may be placed around the depiction, the inside of the frame shows events occurring to real people which didn't happen.
As the year came to a close in 2016, I happened to be reviewing many aspects in my life. The time was more of a coincidence than anything else, as I'm not real big on New Years Resolutions. One thing that was important for me was to spend time that I'm already online, more productively.
Instead of reading facebook and news sites in the morning before work, and to unwind later - I would rather be learning, reading, sharing and... [Read More]
Barack Obama has written an article with that title in the current Harvard Law Review Commentary, he being both prestigious and a lawyer. I'm about to give it a go, the thread's here if anyone else does too.
It was very weird that western physicians who treat their patients by fasting advise them by taking the natural sugar in fruits and water when breaking the fast . And when we know that dates contain a high ratio of such easily-absorbed sugar then dates and water are the best nutriments for fasters.
Here we remember the Hadith of our prophet (PBUH): (When any of you breaks his fasting he should eat dates cause dates are blessing, if
