  1. That Tom Elliot sounds a bit like David Koch and you know what I think of him.
  2. See you when I get back.

    I don't know what to make of it all. Who do you believe? Many Republicans are frothing at the mouth about all these headlines and about Trump and his 'pussy grabbing' etc etc but they seem to forget that Bill Clinton was also accused of rape and sexual harassment. Then there was his decision to lie under oath about his consensual affair with the White House intern Monica Lewinsky. All very sordid.

    What are you reading?

    I've read Shantharam - what a life Gregory Roberts has had. If it was made into a film most people would say it was too far fetched to be true.

    Enjoying this new biography Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin). Saw Led Zep a couple of times in the early 70's. Very loud but very good.
  7. Australia has scrapped its tax on female sanitary products following an 18-year row. Under the new rule, Australians purchasing sanitary products will not have to fork out an extra 10 percent in goods and services tax (GST). Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said it will come into effect on January 1, 2019. Womens groups have been campaigning against the tax since it was introduced in 2000. They argue that sanitary products should be classified as essential items.

    The weather in Tasmania today

    Beautiful weather just now. 20C yesterday. Hasn't rained during the day since mid September. Seems to rain during the night. Blossoms and spring flowers everywhere. Lovely time of the year here.

    people care more for animals

    There are far too many human beings too.

    people care more for animals

    That is true. When you think about it, if we were all decent human beings there would be no need for the RSPCA or any of those children's charities but there are so many utter, cruel b@stards out there that those charities are relied on for help. ?

    Cashless society

    They are giving it a go in the UK. The Big Issue says Britain's move towards a cashless society is contributing to declining sales as it trials contactless payments to help the homeless. The magazine, which is sold by homeless people, has suffered as a result of people walking up and down Britain's high streets without coins and notes in their pockets, as they now rely on cards and mobile phones for payments. Steven Robertson, chief executive of the Big Issue Foundation, said the charity is working with a number of mainstream banks and technology firms to install a cashless system which will be rolled out nationwide to let customers pay by tap-and-go technology. The move will also give homeless people the chance to have a mainstream bank account, a facility they usually struggle to obtain due to not having a home address.

    Dogs or kids in pubs?

    Never took our kids into pubs. Is it allowed? Beer garden yes but not into the bar area. I'm fine with well behaved dogs that sit quietly at your feet. Same would apply to well behaved children ................ obviously sitting quietly in a chair and not at your feet. ?

    people care more for animals

    Blame the media. It's awful how there is some quite unimportant issues e.g. sport, plastered all over the front and next couple of pages in a newspaper or some item about a 'celebrity' then 5 pages in there will be a paragraph about a ferry sinking off a third world country with dozens of people drowned ................ makes no sense to me.

    More Comfortable Airline Seats

    We are flying to the USA very soon. Hate airports and flying but can't complain about seat comfort. I'm not big so I make myself comfy with the pillows provided and get up to walk around when I can. Stopping over in NZ then San Diego for a few days. Spending most of our time with younger son in New York. Wish I could press a button and arrive at my destination immediately. Somebody suggested upgrading but I'd rather have the spending money.
