    TV opened up on ABC Ch22 this morning. Kids show called Alva’s World. Cartoon, low quality. Main theme is mum and dad trying to get daughter Alva off the electronics and into the real world. I only caught a few seconds but mum said “Let’s just download this vaccination app and then we’ll go outside. It’s one of the few sensible things you can download”. And that, ladels and jellyspoons, is why there’s no hope.
    Here’s a fun game for parents

    Has Pacman been replaced by Jabman?

    Getting the roof fixed at the moment. Termites have run amok. Tradie almost feel through through the roof; legs dangling from the ceiling….plaster board gone.

    Scary shit.

    Tragic story. A Queensland mother took her three daughters (aged 6-10) to get their vaxxine injections, two of her daughters died in the “medical” centre. They were told to wait in the waiting room after getting their jabs and two of the girls started convulsing and died.

    The distraught mother could only say “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.”

    I suppose the third surviving girl won’t be having any boosters and will be denied entry to her school. People need to hang for this.

    Canadians take a while to get angry – but they sure know what to do.
    claims the convoy is over 70 kilometers (43 miles) long
    Interesting to watch the news services play around with this. Trucks and truckers are big and hard to ignore. One would think that the number of trucks would be simple to work out. I mean, just count them as they pass by. Nup.

    …… One would think that the number of trucks would be simple to work out. I mean, just count them as they pass by. Nup.

    In one of those articles Kaysee posted yesterday about the Canadian truckers, someone in a town on their route said that it took 2 hours, from the first truck to the last, to pass through their town.

    It sounds more like an armada than a convoy.

    The Canadian truckers seem to be more organised than their Australian counterparts. They have publicised their routes and hundreds of people are waving their flags and cheering them on as they progress towards Ottawa, plus they have raised a lot of money from public support.

    In Australia the convoy here has a Facebook page which no one can log into, and a Telegraph thingo which no one uses.

    That’s a shame as there would be thousands of Australians who would like to support them financially, or wait by the highways to cheer them on. Unfortunately no one knows where they are to offer some encouragement.

    Big hole in the roof.

    Gee whiz!

    Harald Baldr:

    HIMALAYA, MUNDU: The village of Mundu, although situated in Nepal, is culturally, linguistically and architecturally Tibetan. The people who live here, although Nepalese by citizenship, are Tibetan by heritage, language and culture.

    Their ancestors were nomadic and moved about in the Himalayan mountain range with their livestock looking for grazing fields and fertile soil. With the Chinese conquest of their lands, Nepal, unlike some other neighboring countries have magnanimously given them citizenship.

    They describe themselves as both Tibetans and Nepalese though and speak both languages. They continue to be a mountain dwelling people at heart and whenever I asked anyone about moving to a warmer city where life is presumably easier, the answer was: NO!

    Having been brought here by Kartok Lama, the woman who runs Hard Rock Cafe up here in these mountains you saw in my previous video, I was told I could spend the night to experience and get a unique insight into Tibetan village life in the Himalayas.

    Naturally this was an opportunity I was obviously not going to miss….

    No f*cking way is Karijini / Hamersley Range National Park, billions of years old. Those trees are not that old.

    Geologist: You prick!
    Me: F*ck off you rusted on bastard!

    Will drop more coordinates in the future.

    Medvedev won’t let them forget Novak

    I will play again against one of the greatest. And play against someone going for their 21st slam. The last time Rafa was looking near the TV, I don’t know who he was cheering for but I think that Novak will be watching this one in two days also.


    And congrats to the Perth Scorchers winning another BBL final. 🏆

    Let’s hope one of the players sticks it up Mark Moron, like last week.
