Such a gentleman!

Regular readers of this site may be well aware that I do write some pretty daft blogs sometimes, and ask a few idiotic questions too.

To me, this is one of the major reasons for doing it!... Where else can you ask stupid questions and, if you’re lucky even get a few interesting replies too? I usually concentrate on one interesting point or query, and wait to see what develops. Well, this time I’ve put a few of my questions together, questions that may be judged as even smaller and sillier than my usual bumff! Here we go…

Beachside Fun!

I had another one of my ‘silly’ ideas, while lying awake in bed last night, partly due I think, to the fact that I had my radio on, tuned to ABC.

The program I was casually listening to was an interview with an avid swimmer, who luckily lives by the sea, because she adores getting in the water and usually doesn’t let a day go by without having a ‘plunge’.

I'm SOOO Bored!!!

 There's a saying I heard when I was younger...
"Don't retire 'cos you'll die within 2 years!"

Well I don't know about dying so much, but lately in my travels around Australia, I've noticed so many 'retirees' that seem really bored with life day to day.

And yes, it's ok to 'chill' and just sit down and read a book or watch some daytime TV. Who doesn't like to do that from time to time... but EVERY day??!!

False Friends

Having been 'dumped' by so called 'friends' over the years, I decided to do some research and share it here...

It's also helped me get over the sadness of losing what I thought were some of my best friends!

I also hope it helps you too...

Imagine!

While the John Lennon / Yoko Ono song was a hit around the world back in 1971, some groups - mostly religious - took offence at the lyrics - especially the first & second verses re 'heaven & religion'...

But today - especially after I've been scrolling through copious news sites to find something positive (& I didn't), the song has a particular thought provoking message.

From where did we come really?...

I quite often think about our beginnings, (the beginnings of the human race I mean, of course, not my personal beginning, which is of very little importance).

No, I mean the way or ways that we started, and there are numerous ‘guessers’ who have put up a myriad of suggestions over the years, some interesting, some exciting and some downright stupid.

The prime theory at the moment is that we all started out as one person, somewhere in central Africa, though how one person can start a race, all on their own is a mystery to me, plus of course the fact that if this were really so, we would all be terribly inbred, and I doubt very much that we would have lasted even the short period that humans have been here, if this theory were true.

Then & Now!

Times change don’t they?...  and I suppose most people think and hope that those changes will be for the better. And to a large extent that is exactly what does happen.

Just look at the cars of today, compared with those of fifty or more years ago, the Morris Minor and the Mini bear little relationship to the Golf and almost all of the Japanese cars, so popular today.

The future is in our hands!

About everything that CAN go wrong with the world at the moment IS going wrong, isn’t it?

There’s our unwelcome new friend Covid, still lurking in the shadows ready to leap out and bite a few of us even now, which can seem a little surprising because figures aren’t published as often as they used to be, a couple of years ago.

Hervey Bay... QLD

Imagine ‘migrating’ from the UK then deciding to have a look at parts of Australia we’d heard so much about… Just some diary notes below from our adventures…

BROKEN HILL
We Saw several men drinking beer at 7:30.am!


Had breakfast and watched the life of the town; then slept part of the hot day in our small tent, it was 38 degs C, the heat searing us, we just bought ice and fruit.

For many, many years it has been an accepted fact that the Earth was formed several billion years ago, as a molten ball circling a fairly new star, (which we now call the Sun), and after a rather long period of time the ball solidified, cooled and gradually formed rocks and large masses of water, and an atmosphere established itself here.

View From Our Verandah

One of our greatest pleasures is also one of the simplest, something both Jacqui and I indulge in pretty well every day of the year and pretty well any time of the day or night.

It costs us nothing, is always there, ready for us to take advantage of and there is rarely a time when conditions prevent us from enjoying it.
