What do you think?

On the TV3 evening news in New Zealand on Friday evening of the 28th October, the following story was told accompanied by film coverage.

In November 2004, the remains of an unidentified New Zealand World war 1 soldier was brought back to NZ from a War Cemetery in France. On rememberance day 2004, the remains were reinterred on the site of the Cenotaph in Wellington, creating the tomb of the unknown NZ warrior. After the tomb was completed - a male Quail ( the bird)- arrived at the tomb staying close by until Anzac Day on the 25th April 2005-( A special day of rememberance for Australians and New Zealanders.) A short while later after all the ceremonial rememberances were completed the bird returned to the tomb where it remains to this day? Television film footage showed the bird sitting pressed up against the tomb.

Just strange how can this be explained?

Mother Nature

Saw this today had to share it with you Mother Nature shimmering a silvery colour on green leaf. I must admit it did look best when it was fluttering in the air rather than this still shot.

You're in Qld now, drink XXXX Beer!


Hosting Gary is great fun, I even get Mr B onto a City Cat!

Gary and I take so many photos (*taps computer scren, listening Kevin??) that I am unable to put all the pics on 2 cds, even zipped. *sigh

Gary trying on a dinosaur tail, as you do! (suits him? tee hee)

Ennie meenie miney mo... which beer to enjoy today?

Gary Down Under, enjoying his time as a Webcam Girl, *cough

BBQ on the deck, all good



Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man, who's not a creep,
One who's handsome, smart and strong
One who loves to listen long,
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
Massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer To "how big is my behind?
I pray that this man will love me to no end,
and always be my very best friend. Amen.

I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac
with huge tits who owns
a Liquor store and a 48 foot boat.
This doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit

A waiter delivered a bottle of fine Merlot to a beautiful woman and said, "This is from the gentleman at the bar."

She regarded the wine and the man for a moment, and then sent back a written reply.

The gentleman read it. "For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in the garage, a million dollars in the bank, and seven inches in your pants."

He read the note, and then composed one of his own.

She read, "For your information, I have a Ferrari, a BMW, a Mercedes and a Porsche in my garage and twenty million in the bank, but not even for a woman as beautiful as you would I cut off three inches.

Send back the wine!"

Real women -vs- Ladies

Ladies - Don't throw out all that leftover wine.

Freeze into ice cubes for
future use in casseroles and sauces.

Real Women - Leftover wine?? Hello!!


An Australian, a Kiwi and a Yarpie (South African) are in a bar one night
having a beer. All of a sudden the South African drinks his beer, throws his
glass in the air, pulls out a gun and shoots the glass to pieces. "In Seth
Efrika our glasses are so cheap that we don't need to drink from the same
one twice," he says.

The Kiwi, obviously impressed by this, drinks his beer, throws his glass
into the air, pulls out his gun and shoots the glass to pieces.

"Wull mate, in Niw Zulland we have so much sand to make the glasses that we
don't need to drink out the same glass either," he says. The Australian,
cool as a Koala, picks up his beer and drinks it, throws his glass in the
air, pulls out his gun and shoots the South African and Kiwi.

He turns to the astonished barman and says, "In Australia we have so many bloody South
Africans and Kiwis that we don't need to drink with the same ones twice."

"I got the lil bugga in the end Patty"

Garys Australia Zoo Visit

PattycamWatchers-Good advice that may save a life

Hi everyone- received an email today with the following information which I think is worth passing on.

Recognising a stroke

Susie stumbled and fell. Her friend, Sherry, saw this happen. Being very concerned, she had the insight to ask Susie the 3 questions below.

Suzie failed all three test questions, so 111 was called. Even though she had normal blood pressure readings and did not appear to be suffering from a stroke (she could converse to some extent with the Paramedics) they took her to the hospital right away. Susie suffered brain damage after a massive stroke, but is recovering at an incredible pace.

So simple this literally saved Susie's life some angel had previously sent this advice to Susie’s friend and she followed it exactly.

Read and Learn the 3 steps!

A stroke occurs when oxygen fails to reach some part of the brain. Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim will suffer brain damage if people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke, and take action. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking the victim three simple questions:

Ask the individual to SMILE.
Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE. SENTENCE coherently (e.g.”It is sunny out today").

If he or she has trouble with ANY of these tasks. call 111 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. After discovering that a group of non medical volunteers could identify facial weakness arm weakness and speech problems,, researchers now urge the general public to learn the three questions.

They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Associadon's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.

A cardiotogist,.says that if everyone who gets this email sends It to another, 10 people,, you can bet that at least one life will be saved BE A FRIEND. AND SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE

It could, save their lives. A stroke changes the lives of all family and. friends around the victim. for years afterwards....

Happy Birthday Harriet

175 yrs old,she's met Charles Darwin,imagine that,
travelled the world, was once thought to be a Harry and not a Harriet until they figured out how to tell the sex. She has lived on bare concrete, but now she is lovingly cared for by Australia Zoo in a natural environment. she has a few years to go before surpassing the King of Tongas own tortoise that lived well past 180 years. Happy Birthday Harriet and may you have many more

We even found Frodocam, perched high above a city building, overlooking the Brisbane River and the city below.

Home again to meet Rolfe, walking his beloved dog.
