A puzzle

I will publish this this morning, since have been sitting by the warm and cosy wood heater playing with the "speech recognition" software on the laptop. It is a "collaborative" effort between me and the computer - but will leave it up to the reader to figure out the relative contribution between 'silicon chip' programming; and the "fuzzy logic" of human thought.
The North East wind a blows
And shows, that whether the weather
Will change, or range
Across the continents
Of  world sentiments;
In and whether the end of four or more
Will grow in the mind of new meander full
neanderthal.
Flat earth mind We'll find All of a kind.
The changing times remind
Other bygone ages rages of saviours save you
sages; ancient philosophers have got no
Warm-now, for more than four Martin, forgotten.
Noah saw the writing on the wall and took used by road
To ararat Arafat Palestine holyrood his brood.
Animals to buy two, or one, or a dozen
Frozen in one, boiled elsewhere.  Four square.
When planner dark is flooded with CEO two
Where will we take the Arc.

ACHIEVED IT !!!!!!

The proverbial THREESCORE AND TEN

Almost didn't make it. Took this beastie for a ride last Wednesday (29th October 2014).


Attempted a 4 foot high hurdle, horse swerved left; self continued straight ahead.
Oops, think i, tucked in, landed on right shoulder, bounced once, rolled a few times - then stood up in a cloud of dust.

Fortunately no physical damage to self  - apart from a dent in self esteem ... heh.

However, the 3rd day in November marks a life's 'milestone'.
70 years alive on this planet.

Had a bittuva celebration.



(however, after a bit of thought - am asking myself an existential question - why are there no "images" of some of my more 'speccy' physical exploits?).

Old mine site. Almost destroyed my 4WD getting there - and back. Will 'walk in' next time. Stay a day or two. Arrangements will take time to organise.

Too much information to process into a small can of worms.

1 + 1 = interesting algebra

Anthony John Abbott is a "Rhodes scholar". Cecil John Rhodes establishes teh "Rhodes Scholarship".

Cecil John Rhodes  ... established the "british" colony formally known as "Rhodesia".

Should Australians now expect that this "colony" be hence forth (according to Anthony John Abbott's vision of 'glory' ...
be hinted that "terra australis" be wondering whether it should be be 're'named - as Abbottabad. ?


this "Prime Minister" has, once again - proved that he and his 'cabinet' - has not the slightest idea about how to "keep Australia safe".



metadata

interesting\word. OY!, have 'feedjit' in the 'right-hand' "sidebar"..  Anyone can 'read' it - if searching back that far.
,
Also have "statcounter"  .. ya think this is something "new'?
\
(mostly can't be bothered).

However, most of the "hits" on this blog , over time - are about my post about "gaolbait".

Yep, can probably organise some  "statistics" - but they do not come from Australian ISP's.
What's an "isp"? Yer, what ever.

Oh, did i mention this/

(damn, must be becoming part of the "Prime Minister's " 'political adviser' mantra.

Say one thing, three words, .keep repeating - 1500 years of repitition must mean something?. the Roman Imperial Vatican "metadata library" is behind\ you ..;.

The perils

of Roman Imperialism.
Yes, Anthony John Abbott., remember\the slave, whispering ..

PEACE ALERT upgraded! (downgraded?)

Seriously, Australian citizens have more chance of becoming inadvertently dead by falling off a ladder ...
driving a motor vehicle on a highway (especially when inebriated) ... a VERY low chance of being eaten, or mangled by a crocodile or shark.

So, how come the "terror alert" is increasing????????????

Bah, Humbug; just gives the 'boy scouts' (or blue tied by the neck bureaucrats and politicians) the excuse to ask for more money for more (expensive) toys. Prove their "manhood" with 'hard'  ' projectile', whatevers.

Yer, i know; was an 'only child' ; spoilt rotten.

swirling the cloak

Yer, apologies to the readers who have been occasionally visiting - am experimenting with the "template".

While yep, 'consistency' IS important ... self sometimes experiments with the 'magical' internet/computer generated options. Not to worry, DO remain the basic ME.

Have not the slightest idea of what the "new" "reformed"  Womby's drivel will eventually look like, just thought that would experiment. Perhaps i may be able to "put the old format back" - but doubt it.

Is, however, a bit easier, and  far less "important" than the Scottish vote. This, obviously, is not all that important to me, specifically, but will be to those who seem to think that it's simply a democratic "vote" to change Parliaments - where one really only has to wait until the 'next' parliamentary elections.

'Tis a bit like the people in Western Australia setting up a "referendum" to "secede" from the Federated Commonwealth of Australia. ok, PISS ORF. .... but remember that the Federated Commonwealth States of Australia SUPPORTED you, until iron ore was found and exploited. Will you come crawling back into the Commonwealth of Australia when the iron ore runs out? If the (nonspecified) military from elsewhere decided that the Pilbara might be cheaper under their control. Would you be able to "defend" the independent "State" without the support of the Federal  "Australian Defence Force"?

Have also been watching an ABC  TV program about "transgender" issues (um, am male, with penis and testicles - if that's important - but also seem to have retained 'compassion' and 'emotions' - if that makes sense).

The point of the documentary seems to be ... once changed - there is no 'going back'..

On the other hand (sinister, dexter ... what's wrong with being ambidextrous?)

Considering all the crap on the "news" these days - might be worth having a look at THIS,* again.

Astonishing stupidity?

OK, adding the question mark since am not all that convinced that it might be ME who is stupid.

However, quite a lot of the decisions of the current crop of Federal politicians - according to what i hear in, and in, whatever media i can access - is astonishingly peculiar, and laden with inconsistent logic.

Won't post ALL of them, but here are a few ...

Silence relating to "Operational matters" -
Scott Morrison, Minister for Immigration, invoked "Operational matters" when refusing to tell the Australian media about two leaky fishing boats.
 On the other hand, the 'Prime Minister' seems quite happy to "inform the media" that we have heavy-lift aircraft delivering arms in Northern Iraq. Have even heard which airport they are landing at, and where they will be "delivering" those shipments of armaments.

Does anyone else see some peculiarities here? What danger do two leaky fishing boats have to "National Security" - as distinct from "informing the 'brutal terrorists'" where our RAAF aircraft are, WHAT they are, and what they are doing?????

Fixing the budget;

O, o, o. Too much for this little pixie to comprehend and write about in detail. HOWEVER.
Am still trying to wrap my tiny mind around this one and write something concise. The latest "oddity" is that while the Treasurer Joe Hockey has, for the past twelve months, been whinging that ' we won't be able to afford the OLD people in the future .... suddenly decides to freeze compulsory superannuation savings.

Bill Shorten has tried to articulate the stupidity of this. Says something like - 'why reward 9 multinational mining companies, at the expense of the future of 9 million working Australians?
OH, says Joe Hockey .. that more money will go to the workers. ??? how? it was never intended to be in the 'workers' pay packet in the first place.  If he thinks that "BIG BUSINESS" Multinationals will REALLY give their 'employees', (aka future slaves) a 3% INCREASE in wages each year, every year, for the next 7 years - he must be living in some sort of Rupert Murdoch induced FANTASYLAND!!!

While yes, Joe Hockey can cavort around Parliament house and the 5 minute media cycle .... claiming "WE got rid of the mining tax.!!!! What he is not saying or chortling about is that "attached" to that legislation were some other rather disturbing "sub-clauses". Will try to find out what they are, but one of them was removing some support for "Small Business" Dunno what you lot think ... but surely the "wealth" of a country, a Nation - is the ability of "small business' to circulate finances WITHIN the country or Nation.

Frankly, i don't really care much about who make profit or "super profits" ... PROVIDED THAT MONEY REMAINS CIRCULATING WITHIN AUSTRALIA.

At this point, it looks like the current arrogant arseholes are winning the "SPIN" cycle. BAH HUMBUG!!!

Banana republic? Here we come.
Addendum:
Interesting comment  (thanks, Vestie)
