Peter's big Qld adventure

So our mate Peter is over here from WA, having a great time too...although little bubs is having a great nap. Shhh...


Frodo's baby - what shall we call her?

Ok people, pay attention! We need to name our little bird, as she will soon be stretching those wings, and another year will be over.

Greg (Falcon expert) is fairly certain she is a girly, rather than a boy...

Some readers suggestions from the Courier Mail....

Another name that has come up is Dolly (something to do with the enlarged crop after a feed ... ) What the!
One group in Cleveland calls her Hope.
Somewhere in Europe she's called Aussie.
Someone else has called her Squishy.

Over to you now, put on your creative hats and start thinking.

Any suggestions?

The Great Ocean Road is one of the worlds top drives, and the Twelve Apostles (now sadly eleven) are always amazing.

-A woman has the last word in any argument

-Anything a man says after that is beginning of a new argument.


-A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs

-A WOMAN will pay $1 for a $2 item she doesn't need


-A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband

-A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife

-A successful man is one who makes more than his wife can spend

-A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


-Any married man should forget his mistakes- Theres not point two people remembering the same thing

Looks worse than it is

So yesterday Mum says to me, "you'll have to tidy yourself up before you go into hospital, tidy the beard up and get a haircut". I'm thinking why, I doubt the surgeons going to be worried if i look a bit scruffy i'm going to look just as scruffy after the op with tubes in my mouth down my throat and in my nose hair uncombed and unshaven. So to keep the peace, I did this on the spur of the moment. The haircut will come in the next few days. The things we do for our mothers

I need Help with something

Ok, I need a hand here….I entered a Canon photo comp…Prize is a Canon EOS40D with all accessories $5,000 worth.…only 2,500 people in it
What they have given us all is a Box with 4 smaller boxes inside….each box containing a different item.
Items are 1. The boxes
2. A balloon
3. dots
4. Cellophane
5. Piece of chalk
There are five different competitions, but you can only use one of the items in each competition.

Crazy John Dies

Crazy John's founder John Ilhan has died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 42.

Mr Ilhan collapsed on his morning walk at around 5:30am.

“This is a tragic day. John was an inspiration to everyone who ever knew or worked with him," said Brendan Fleiter, Crazy John’s Managing Director.

"He grew a business from nothing to become the biggest independent mobile phone retailer in Australia. John was always a big thinker, the difference was he always achieved what he said he would do."

I just watched a good story on him last sure is odd

Cannot Remember if I have posted this before
The Truth About Starbucks:

Ever taken a good look at the Starbucks logo?
If you look well, you will notice that the image is that of a mermaid-woman spreading her legs!
Most of the people I tell about this say that they thought it was just her hair.
WRONG. The image is actually that of an ancient demoness called Derketo, who is none other than
the Whore of Babylon in revelations!
“the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” (Rev. 17:1-2 KJV)
In this case, the wine of her fornication is Starbucks’ day-to-day business.
Millions of people around the world are being fooled by this scheme. Don’t be one of them!
No wonder their motto is “Now being served!”
Last year alone, Starbucks opened 2,199 stores globally. That’s an average of 6 stores per day!
In total, Starbucks had 12,440 stores in 37 countries at the end of 2006.

Let them eat cake

Afternoon Tea, a great success!

Afternoon Tea with neighbours

Here we go AGAIN :(

A 14-year-old gunman opened fire at a high school in Cleveland, Ohio, shooting four people before committing suicide, local authorities said.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson two students and two adults were wounded in the shooting at SuccessTech Academy.

"The shooter is a 14-year-old student from the school. He has committed suicide," Jackson said at a press conference.

A 17-year-old student who was shot in the elbow was expected to be released from hospital in the evening while a 14-year-old who was shot in the side will likely be held overnight for observation, he said. The two adults are in stable condition.

Local media reported the student, who was described as a loner, was frustrated after being suspended from school for getting into a fight on Tuesday.

He came to school early Wednesday and roamed through the hallways with a gun in each hand and shots were heard on two different floors.

Screams and panic filled the building, witnesses said. Some students and teachers rushed outside at the sound of gunfire while others hid in closets and under desks while police searched the multilevel building for the shooter.

"I know that dude was crazy, we just knew it — you know when people are crazy, come on, man," one student who fled at the sound of gunshots told CNN.

"He was in my class ... He always wore a trench coat."

The boy was described by other students as a loner and devil worshipper who had made jokes about shooting other students in front of teachers.

"I didn't think he meant it," another unidentified student told news station WKYC. "I thought he just said it because he wanted to be popular."

Frantic parents rushed to the school to get news of their children and many were told to wait until police had finished interviewing them. Several complained the school had recently denied requests to hire a security guard.

Cleveland school district head Eugene Sanders said counselors were on hand to help students and administrators were working to reunite students with their parents. A decision had not yet been made on when classes would resume.

It was just the latest in a spate of shootings over the past weeks.

In September, two 17-year-old students were wounded when they were shot by a gunman at Delaware State University.

On Tuesday, two people were killed and two others injured in a shooting at a workshop in Simi Valley, California, police said.

That shooting took place at a tire assembly shop in the city of 120,000 some 50 kilometres northwest of Los Angeles often listed among the country's safest communities.

And on Sunday, a gun-toting sheriff's deputy went on a rampage, killing his ex-girlfriend and five other youths at a house party in a small town in Wisconsin, authorities said.

The 20-year-old deputy and all those shot were all part of a close-knit group of friends, sources said.

The incident recalled the horrors eight years ago of the Columbine high school shooting in Colorado and a similar bloodbath at Virginia Tech earlier this year.

During the massacre at Columbine High School massacre in April 1999, two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, embarked on a shooting rampage, killing 12 students and a teacher, as well as wounding 24 others, before committing suicide.

That shooting led to a period of introspection across the United States as the country briefly contemplated the downside of its celebrated "gun culture" but in the end, failed to pass laws or make other changes that would have made firearms less available.

A similar reaction followed the shooting in April of this year of 32 people by mentally disturbed student Cho Seung-Hui at Virginia Tech University, who also turned his arm on himself.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation reported last month that more than 1.4 million murders, rapes, robberies and assaults were committed around the United States last year, or a violent crime every 22 seconds.

The number of victims of violent crime in the United States last year was the equivalent of the entire population of European Union member Estonia or the African state of Gabon falling victim to murder, rape, robbery or assault.

The rate of violent crime was up by 1.9 percent compared with 2005, with murders climbing by 1.8 percent to nearly 15,000 cases last year.
