Elsewhere, many are having floods for a second time in several months. Heavy rain has created widespread problems and a mini tornado hit Kiama, a very rare occurance, almost unheard of. Is it climate change? Ask Lord Monkton!!!

The Mythbusters are gun happy. Should they limit their glee over shooting up dummies while they smugly demonstrate their prowess at the shooting range.
Perhaps the show is one way of gratifying the viewer's desire to do deadly things with a pistol instead of launching into a real life disaster. It would be better if the Mythbusters excluded guns from their show and concentrate on the other zaney experiments that they do so well.

+Why was Pope Benedict grinning wickedly at breadfast?
Someone asked him what he was giving up for Lent.
+What will the Pope eat for breakfast in his retirement?

I'm glad that I don't experience the big struggle that the Americans have in order to get good and reasonable leglisation passed, or so it seems to me. Our system is a bit different to all that.
I certainly expect government to take the lead.
For a change, President Obama expresses ideals, just like a leader should and, would you believe, he extols people of the union to do good. He is good with media. Even when it is likely that any decent, indispensible leglislation will wither and die up against extreme lobbists, the politicians rely on their thick skins and remain positive during the farce.
Are we going the same way?

If we are to ruin our environment with coal mining and gas wells, and ruin our atmosphere with unhealthy dust, and contribute to global warming by burning coal,
we can at least have
a carbon credit scheme
and an effective mining tax.

Recently, the doco, Gasland, from Josh Fox in the USA, showed all the dreary problems that follow-on drilling for shale gas and the film was made some years ago when some states were already littered with wells. Is Josh still hiding out in an idyllic spot on the banks of the Delaware untroubled by fracking activities? Although it was filmed in warm weather.
Europe doesn't seem to be taking gas drilling as a given. Must we follow everything that is done by others and copy their mistakes.
Stuck at home lately I have seen more TV and the interest shown in movie making and the celebs is difficult to take seriously. This pervasive imported rubbish is all over commercial TV. It has its following.
Please girls, don't adopt, the must have hair styles featuring long locks carefully tumbling forward on each side of the face over the shoulders and down. Please be more down to earth.
The local food industry has been quiet about the horse-meat troubles in Europe. Are we importing the same products? who knows? another black mark against processed foods.
