Just a thing

Okay I am a little bored so I am being picky about this, but it rubbed me the wrong way last night. I was watching the Amazing race on TV. They where on the Vietnam leg and this ignorant or arrogant person said ''that's it dude I'm not talking to foreigners any more'' Who do they thing they are? He is the foreigner in Vietnam. Perhaps they should give these jokers a geography lesson before they put them on the show. Or do they think only Americans watch or could understand the show. Now don't bite my head off its just an opinion.

Storms halt Indian Pacific in its tracks

Storm damage has halted the Indian Pacific train in western NSW, forcing passengers to take a 1,000km bus ride through flooded countryside.

The Indian Pacific was heading east from Perth and Adelaide towards Sydney on Friday night, when heavy rain in far-west NSW forced the train back to Broken Hill.

Flooding damaged track between Ivanhoe and Condobolin some time between 6pm and midnight (AEDT), a Great Southern Railway spokeswoman said.

In north-western NSW, heavy rain has dumped a record 171mm at Coonamble since midnight and 141mm at nearby Coonabarabran.

Many local roads leading to Coonabarabran have been cut by flooding but the town itself has sustained minor damage, a State Emergency Service spokesman says.

Further north at Baradine, a town of 300, residents are working to sandbag a small levee that has overflowed, causing most of the area to flood.

At Mendooran, the Castlereagh River has exceeded minor flood levels and is expected to rise further this evening, the Bureau of Meteorology reported.

SES spokesman Phil Campbell said emergency crews had received 370 calls from across NSW and were urging people not to "drive, ride or walk near floodwaters".

Why don't Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus have children of their own?

Because he only comes once a year and then it's down the chimney!

Wet wet wet

The storms we had yesterday where mostly noise, compare Patty's post yesterday with this newpost. This will last a day or so and its welcome just so long as its gone by Monday..

Four more sleeps

Now I wish I had thought of this

I have 2 dogs & I was buying a large bag of Winalot dog food in Tesco and was standing in the queue at the till. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Winalot Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time. However, not before I'd lost 50 pounds and then awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and the way that it works is to load your trouser pockets with Winalot nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the queue was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no, it was because I'd been sitting in the road licking my balls and a car hit me.

I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.

Stupid cow..........why else would I buy dog food?

Last Nights storm in MT ISA

Earthqake rocks New Zealand

A powerful 6.8 earthquake struck off New Zealand on Thursday, knocking down buildings, ripping holes in streets and causing widespread power outages in one eastern city.

Strong tremors were felt across the country when the quake hit at 8:55 pm about 50 kilometres from the coastal city of Gisborne, which was littered with broken glass.

Ten people were treated for minor injuries and up to 10 fires were brought under control, while police cordoned off the city centre. No tsunami warning was issued.

A state of emergency has been declared for the centre of the eastern New Zealand city of Gisborne after a powerful 6.8 earthquake flattened buildings and left gaping holes in roads.

The centre of the city of 42,000 people has been cordoned off by police, who said two buildings had collapsed and others were badly damaged.
There have been numerous earthquakes in the region recently, including a strong 7.6 magnitude quake near the Auckland Islands south of New Zealand on September 30.

New Zealand lies on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," where colliding plates in the earth's crust cause frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity.

Santa's 2007 Flight Plan

Sneak view inside Santa's sleigh
Santa has allowed us to show the view from inside the sleigh. We weren't allowed to take a real photo, but Santa gave us this picture instead. The display has a satellite navigation system in the middle to make sure Santa won't get lost on his way from the North Pole.

Santa has covered up the list of houses that he will visit on Christmas Eve.

The sleigh also has a special landing system to make sure he can land on rooftops quietly and safely.

Japan halts humpback whale hunt

Japan has apparently agreed not to kill humpback whales during its current Antarctic hunt, the US ambassador to Tokyo said on Wednesday, a move that could help ease criticism of its controversial whaling program.

Japan's whaling fleet set sail last month with plans to catch more than 1,000 whales, including 50 humpbacks, which are popular among whale-watchers for their distinctive silhouettes and acrobatic leaps, before returning to port early next year.

Humpbacks were hunted to near extinction until the International Whaling Commission ordered their protection in 1966 and the planned hunt had sparked a loud outcry from activists.

"I think we had an agreement ... between the United States and Japan that humpback whales would not be harvested, I think, until maybe the International Whaling Conference in June," US ambassador to Japan Thomas Schieffer told a small group of reporters.

Because of migration patterns, the delay would mean it would be "a while before they are at risk again," Schieffer added.

Australia announced on Wednesday that it would send a fisheries patrol ship to shadow Japan's whaling fleet near Antarctica and gather evidence for a possible international court challenge to halt the yearly hunt.

Separately, Greenpeace sent a ship on Wednesday to try to stop the Japanese fleet hunting whales.

Japan has long resisted pressure to stop what it calls scientific whaling, insisting that whaling is a cherished cultural tradition.

"Japan's whaling is being conducted in line with international treaties and for the purpose of scientific research. We would like to win the understanding of others," a Japanese foreign ministry spokesman said in Tokyo.

2007 Volunteers Day awards night

My wife Cathy and I were invited to an awards night last night. This is us being handed the award by our great Mayor "King Les". Cathy got up to the mic and made the acceptance speech as I am too shy. It was all to do with Planting a very hardy Beach cooch which is on our beach front and we look after. And they had free drinks and knaps, which I helped myself to.

Woot! I mean 'w00t'!

"w00t," an expression of joy coined by online gamers, was crowned word of the year on Tuesday by the publisher of a leading U.S. dictionary.

Massachusetts-based Merriam-Webster Inc. said "w00t" — typically spelled with two zeros — reflects a new direction in the American language led by a generation raised on video games and cell phone text-messaging.

It's like saying "yay," the dictionary said.

"It could be after a triumph or for no reason at all," Merriam-Webster said.

Visitors to Merriam-Webster's Web site were invited to vote for one of 20 words and phrases culled from the most frequently looked-up words on the site and submitted by readers.

Runner-up was "facebook" as a new verb meaning to add someone to a list of friends on the Web site or to search for people on the social networking site.

Merriam-Webster President John Morse said "w00t" reflected the growing use of numeric keyboards to type words.

"People look for self-evident numeral-letter substitutions: 0 for O; 3 for E; 7 for T; and 4 for A," he said. "This is simply a different and more efficient way of representing the alphabetical character."

One Web site,, already sells T-shirts with the word "w00t" printed on the front.

"w00t belongs to gamers the world over. It seems to have been derived from the obsolete 'whoot' which essentially is another way to say 'hoot' which itself is a shout or derisive laugh," Think Geek said on its Web site.

"But others maintain that w00t is the sound several players make while jumping like bunnies in Quake III," it added, referring to a popular video game.

Online gamers often replace numbers and symbols with letters to form what Merriam-Webster calls an "esoteric computer hacker language" known as "l33t speak." This translates into "leet", which is short for "elite".

A separate survey of words used in the media and on the Internet by California-based Global Language Monitor produced a different set of winners on Tuesday. "Hybrid" took top honors as word of the year with "climate change" the top phrase.

Global Language Monitor, which uses an algorithm to track words and phrases in the media and on the Internet, said "hybrid" had broad connotations of "all things green from biodiesel to wearing clothes made of soy to global warming."

Runner-up was "surge," based on the "surge" of 30,000 extra U.S. troops deployed to Iraq since mid-June, followed by the word "Bluetooth," a technology used to connect electronic devices via radio waves.

Storms overhead! Duck!

Listen to all of this

This will put a smile on your dial

A Merry Christmas to you all.

Joke - just a joke, sheesh!

I purchased a Teddy Bear this morning for the princely sum of $10.

I named him Mohammed.

This afternoon I sold him on E-Bay for $30.

My question is: "Have I made a prophet?"

Gold, gold on the internet

The things you see when you don't have a gun, lol.. Stumbled across this tonight, origianlly searching for Little Britian stuff.

It's from an ex-pats site for British, God love them and their teeth! (Americans always have perfect teeth, sighs)

Hi Penny,

Daft question, but does your friend have an 'unusual surname?' if so postie should remember the name and know where they live? possibly?
I would send it and hope wherever it turns up, they might know said people does that make any sense?

has she got unusual features, big tits, red hair, dodgy front tooth, feral fingers... etc.. address it as thus:

Carol Smythers-Postelthwaite
Ginger haired big titted bitch with a gammy knee,
Letsbe Ave,
Galaxy System.

ps: posty please make sure she gets this, its second sperm donor supplement.

A woman sitting on a park bench is joined by a man and they start talking about their lives.The woman says 'I have been widowed three times now'
The man replies 'I'm sorry to here that' How did they die?
The woman says' 'The first two died from eating poison mushrooms'
'oh really' says the man 'What did the third husband die of?'
Woman 'A fractured skull'
Man 'How did that happen?'
Woman 'He would not eat the Mushrooms!'

Its just my opinion

This was meant for my blog but It was not working
I think there are as many good things about America as there are bad things.
The production line started by Henry Ford gave us cheaper products and that's good.It also increased employment.
Then there's the internet ,computers, flight, t.v, movies.While not all invented in the U.S they where modified improved and made it possible for the general public to obtain.
It's true most people do not like the gun culture in the U.S myself included.And the welfare system is not that good .
Racial tensions are not just a problem there.
A lot gets polarized because it is the U.S.A
Lets see how much changes once the new president is elected next year. I just hope they get more people interested in voting this time.
The old saying ''only in America'' no longer applies its as outdated as the British 'stiff upper lip' or the 'ocker Aussie'
As I said its just my opinion, no raspberries or roses

Little Johnny entered Mrs. Marshall's classroom one Monday morning.
Mrs. Marshall asked, "How was your weekend, John?"
Little Johnny said, "Horrible. A car hit my dog in the a$s!"
Mrs. Marshall cautioned him, "John, you should say 'rectum' instead."

"Rectum?! It damn near killed him!"

Greening the Beaches

My wife Cathy and I have made the paper again. They are trialing a new Beach Cooch out the front of home. We look after it as part of a beach management protection thing. We have been invited to an International Volunteers day presentation evening next week so should be interesting. Maybe recognition for growing grass and being a greenie.

I did the best I could with a pocket size camera and a long way from the stage. 20,000 fans and the atmosphere was terrific. And Elton John has a lisp...They must edit it out in the recording studios
