Let Bygones Be Bygones

The rest of the world cannot understand how after bitter election campaigns, American politicians can return to reality. For instance, Sarah Palin has invited to her great state of Alaska the men who defeated her...
Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

She has provided a moose hunting trip for their enjoyment and has hired two other prominent men to assist them.

Dick Cheney will instruct them in safe gun handling, and Ted Kennedy will drive them back to their cabins in the evening.

What a gal! That Sarah is such a sport and thinks of everything!

Judge gives 7-year-old right to decide * Seattle, WA (AP) -

A seven-year old boy was at the center of a King County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her.

When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Seattle Seahawks football team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A 3-year-old boy examined his testicles while taking a bath. 'Mom', he asked, 'Are these my brains?'
'Not yet,' she replied.

Thoughts on Pattycam - Dec 2004.

I found this that I had written in December 2004. Thought it was topical.
"Thoughts on Response to a question "Do I ever get worried about sharing my life with strangers, as there are a lot of weirdos out there"

Yes, I do know what you mean, I think about it too.

There was a stage when someone was ringing me all the time at home, and then hanging up, until I wrote on my tagboard to knock it off, and they did, lol. You just have to trust the world, and be alert.

Once when I went shopping, two university blokes stopped mid-track and pointed, saying PATTYCAM! and I thought "oh crap, do people like that watch me?" but hey, I just try to be honest and do what I think is right (by my family too) and if people want to waste their time by watching me get on with my life, *shrug*. (and I don't mean "people like that!" I just meant I was a little self-conscious and embarrassed being recognized, silly, eh?)

I have a very weird sense of humour, and I am a very curious person, so I enjoy the interaction of people coming to visit my site, especially if they take the time to say hello, and introduce themselves. It's like visiting my home, I expect people to behave themselves, wipe their feet at the door, and mind their manners.

I used to be a radio reporter, and both my hubby and I are very heavily involved in the community, and our school, so we are very used to being in the spotlight, and are not shy people (except when we walk into the kitchen early mornings and realize the bloody cam is on, and we are in the nuddy! YIKES!) Thank goodness for the 15 second refresh rate, at least its not streaming.....hahahahahaha, we back out of the kitchen very quickly!

If someone gives me a hard time, I can always block their isp from seeing my site, but have never had any cause to do that. Sometimes I get teenagers saying "show your bits" but I ignore them, and always try to have a family site, as my friends, mother, sister, hubby and my kids friends drop in and say hello, so anything that offends me, will offend them too.

I am just in the throes of buying the site name for another 3 years,, and the bloke said "You want to buy another 10 years?" and I thought, "really, am I still going to be interested in doing this in another 10 years time"?!

So I have the domain for another 3, that's when I will turn 50, and maybe I will bugger off the cyberspace then..and visit someone else’s home,

Enthusiasm for the internet is cooling

"It's becoming increasingly apparent that virtual worlds can replace actual ones only up to a point," he told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA).

"A small but growing group of people who had a strong affinity to the internet and digitalisation are dropping out now," remarked Horx, noting that many companies had declared email-free days.

He cited studies showing that some 2.6 million people regard themselves as "ex-onliners," having cut down on their digital communication to enhance the quality of their lives.

High Tea at Parliament House - Brisbane

Was she a.......

What's more....She undoubtedly Voted

The following is believed to be a funny and true story shared by K.C. Williams who teaches AP Government at Santa Fe High School.
In one of K.C.'s classes, they were discussing the qualifications to be president of the United States. It was pretty simple: the candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.

However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.

KC and the class were just taking it in and letting her rant, but everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating . . . ''What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"

I have to ask and I'm probably gonna' get hammered for it.

.............................."Was she a blonde? !?!"

Ralph's 130 inflatable boobs lost at sea, never reach Australia

MORE than 130,000 inflatable boobs have been lost at sea on their way to Australia. The missing booby booty is estimated to be worth about $200,000

Men's magazine Ralph was planning to include the boobs as a free gift with its January issue.

The cargo is worth about $200,000, which is another blow for publisher ACP's parent company PBL, which is already in $4.3 billion of debt.

A spokeswoman for Ralph said the container left the dock in Beijing two weeks ago but turned up empty in Sydney this week.

The magazine has put out an alert to shipping authorities to see if they have the container, but if they don't turn up in the next 48 hours it will be too late for the next issue, she said.

Ralph editor Santi Pintado urged anyone who has any information to contact the magazine.

"Unless Somali pirates have stolen them its difficult to explain where they are," Pintado told AAP.

"If anyone finds any washed up on a beach, please let us know."

My smiley face efforts from last night

I wanted a picasso look to my face...with hair

Smiley moon

Some moon images from last night. The moon sems happy/grinning/mischeivious and just plain blurry, ha.

IS it a flying saucer? Is it a runaway intergalactic missile? No, it's just a smiley face, formed by a rare alignment of heavenly bodies.

Right on schedule on Monday evening, Venus, Jupiter and a three-day-old crescent moon have appeared as a smiley face above the western horizon.

While they appeared to be close together, in reality they weren't. The crescent moon is 403,000km away while Venus is 149.5 million kilometres away and Jupiter 870 million kilometres.

The unusual astronomical event was observed for several hours early on Monday evening. It will be another five years before it appears again.

Australia has left Britain with yet another wound to lick, taking out an international gong for best beer.

Australia has left Britain with yet another wound to lick, taking out an international gong for best beer.

"This is just another example of something the Poms invented yet have lost to the Aussies," Barons Brewing managing director Scott Garnett said.

Barons Black Wattle Original Ale was voted the most popular beer out of 50 nominations at the JD Wetherspoon international beer festival in Britain last month.

A day later, the Wallabies savaged England 28-14 at Twickenham.

Barons Brewing was one or four international contenders in the competition which was run in 717 JD Wetherspoon pubs across Britain and voted on by 8,500 customers.

The brewer was invited to represent Australia after producing the first beer in the world made with native Australian spices.

"To win number one beer at such a huge festival is a great result for Barons and Australian beer," Mr Garnett said.

The success of the beer has drawn significant interest from British importers keen to distribute Barons beers across the country.

The winning pint is described as an amber ale flavoured with native Australian roasted wattle seed, bringing out a unique flavour reminiscent of hazelnut and mocha, and with an alcohol content of 5.8 per cent.

Xmas Joke

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

'In honor of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter.He flicked it on.

'It represents a candle', he said.

'You may pass through the pearly gates' Saint Peter said. The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys.

He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'

Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'. The third man started searching desperately through his pockets andfinally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'Andjust what do those symbolize?'

The man replied, 'These are Carols.'
