Come back to us soon DP and continue to lighten our wretched lives.
While you're unabled for a while, hearten yourself with the raft of sensible responses to another idiotic outpouring by the fog botherer - who knew The Australian's twitter feed could convey so much sense?https://twitter.com/australian/status/742680681365393409
Fog botherer? A Melbourne winter morning version obviously.
Not the Melbourne I live in now. We used to have real fogs in Melbourne - rampant pea-soupers sometimes which would lasy into the afternoon - and as a 10 yo newspaper round kid who got up at 4:45 to go and deliver "the news" I got to appreciate fogdom. Now all we get is a bit of mist here and there which dissipates 5 minutes after sunrise.But then, some fogs are doggy, and some dogs are foggy. Or thereabouts.PS: what do you feed to your cat (other than exaggerated reverence and obedience, of course) ?
[sigh] That's "... last into the afternoon". Either that or it was short for "lasy, hasy, crasy (days of winter)"
Ah GB, not only not much fog but very little "news". Sitting here in the sun, enjoying a morning coffee I am struggling to find anything worth reading in the "Spencer Street Soviet' I am reluctant to aproach the "Hun' as i rely on Ms Pond to do the hard yards of providing a management overview of the Daily Ruperts.With a thick pea souper you could always "lust" into the afternoon. Nothing like diving under the covers all day in a wet, cold, foggy Melbourne winters day. Even at our age.
My heart (et al) cheers for you, sl, but all I'd get from it these days is bedsores. :-)
Every time a yank says "period" I can't help thinking naughty thoughts. Is this some monthly thing? Can we expect a host of bloody pads on the floor?Aunt Irma is visiting.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8w9eoZtnJSA
I think they means something like "full stop". But you never can know with the cousins.Perverts and mass murderers as they are.
Katter's feral shooter electoral ad!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W95RHO6_Gw4
Last election I recall gun mad Katter had a policy to erect a pointer, a giant rotating concrete non-hetero detecting statue - sorta like the Colossus of Rhodes updated to Katter's image in Queensland somewhere... I can't find it now, maybe it was a tv skit? It certainly made me laugh.http://www.smh.com.au/national/homosexuality-separates-katters-20110823-1j8fq.htmlBob Katter opposes gay marriage vehemently and once said he ''would walk to Bourke backwards if the poof population of north Queensland is any more than 0.001 per cent.''Chaser Yes we Canberra!

Just today I was surfing around when I came upon a commentary on Trump's 'post Orlando' raving. [See: http://xpostfactoid.blogspot.com.au/2016/06/no-one-can-say-people-are-deceived.html ]It contained the following observation about Trump: "His solipsism is so extreme that there is no boundary line in his mind between what works for him and what is true."So, at long last, somebody in the American MSM has tumbled to the fundamental nature of Trump: he's a rabid solipsist.And so is Katter, of course (and Xenophon and di Natali and Turnbull), but Katter is a very minor lesser crested grebe to Trump's Great Crested Grebe. But I'm pleased that somebody has finally called him for what he is.
You think you can impress us all with your encyclopaedic knowledge of grebes, GB, both greater and lesser, crested or no.But what do you know about loons?
Ah well, you see Merc "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent." Which basically describes most of the universe as far as I'm concerned.
Well thanks bambi. Our water is off with no notice, and the internet is fucked. All we can so is go to bed and have sex after ripping off our dirty underpants.Actually that's not such a bad thing. :)Central Coast NSW
Reading a great book by Michael Dobbs 'Whispers of Betrayal' having enjoyed 'The Buddha of Brewer of Brewer Street'. Have just realised he is the original author of House of Cards.

:)³ The pond still believes he wants to be Generalfeldmarschall, a bit like Douglas Macarthur in the Philippines, or former Chairman Rudd ... and didn't that turn out well ...
I see the dog botherer has been let out of his kennel today to spew more bile about totalitarian lefties again.
Indeed, it's always a pleasure reviewing the dogbotherer's breakfast.Almost as much pleasure, p'raps, as sighting the reptiles hunting for stale crumbs at a Kirribilli dinner via a national narrowband network.
Now showing on LibTV. "Parakeelia - Extreme Fishing with Jobson Growth"
Now that's funny!
