Of course you joke!

The little Fiat 500 had a name too ....
I am at Chevron Island on the Gold Coast Queensland [ still part of Australia ] enjoying a coffee but the world starts later here - in Perth my favourite coffee stops open at 5 am but I haven't found that one here yet - consigned to a 6 am start.
Yesterday we went with friends to Mount Tamborine... and had a fabulous day.
On the way home the local ABC news station report a dreadful natural event in Tamborine ... a branch from a large tree fell on parked cars and they had a local interview the owner of a Fiat 500 which was damaged by the fall. The interview was amazing for it's quaintness - the card had a name and we heard of the excitement created by the electrical sparks from the downed power lines - obviously news from a country town perspective.
Later, when we had returned to the "big smoke" on the Gold Coast we watched/listened to the same event from main stream media... apparently someone else was injured somehow and transported to hospital by ambulance... we don't know how "they" are but there surely will be a claim against the Town of Tamborine ... and we shouldn't park under shady trees in Tamborine as branches might fall... nobody mentioned that this was actually the first recorded example of this happening but that, obviously, would muck up a good story.
I wouldn't be surprised in weekend numbers at Tamborine are down this week as people avoid the possibility of being hit by a tree.

Where is the other shoe

There is another one of me!

Sunday morning in Perth - ready for another 10 days on the road... with the Paul McCartney Concert in the middle with friends Elizabeth and Terry. Great end to a interesting year.
My mind races when I see a lonely shoe on my walks. This morning the shoe is actually a small child's slipper. So I wonder, what will her mother say?? Was it discarded on purpose - a naughty child, did it slip off unintentionally and will cause concern when replaced... there are many stories.
Let's hope all is well with the ankle bitter.

What will the future look like? Who knows?

Should we ban strange head gear!

This is a bit political today!
When Pauline Hansen was first elected to parliament she was railing against Asian Migration to Australia and about 30-40% of Australian agreed with her.
Now circa 2017 she has Muslin Migration in her sights with 30-40% of Australians agreeing with her - the number of people concerned about Asian immigration has reduced to >5%.
Will our concerns about Muslim influx similarly reduce over time?? The major difference is that there is a very small number of Muslim immigrants who have decided to "undo" anything that is Australian and NOT assimilate. This wasn't the case with the Asian migration or after the war European migration.
So the issue is how to stop radicalisation of you Muslims... yes the very small number.
Unfortunately nobody knows what the future will look like.

It won't matter tomorrow... I promise!

Now that is a crowd

7,584,375,240 that's how many people there are in the world today... and you think the opinion of 1 makes a difference??
There are two answers - one person can change the world but what one person thinks about you hardly matters!!
Just a thought!

What's your excuse?? ASPERGERS! Give me a break.

Give me a break - you are just a turd!
If I had been numbering my posts, I wonder what number I would be up to?? I will never know.
Today I think I will have a shot at all the outing of personalities that is going on. I think about the "holier than thou" class who are the glitterati, and all the preaching they do and think... why did you wait for 20 years to do this??
When a hero of mine, Rolf Harris was exposed, I was in shock not believing it could be true. Well apparently it was and everyone was "at it"
Latest is Australian Gardening Guru Don Burke... everybody knew he was an arsehole but he was a ratings machine so he was allowed to continue... and I now tend to believe the stories because he rolled out an excuse... if I did these things I don't remember or best yet, I have Aspergers. The little turd. Are you saying it was OK because of that or that all people with Aspergers are like you???
In Australia at least they don't threaten to go to Canada... that's a blessing for Canada.

The race that stops a nation

The Melbourne Cup

Thought for Today 58/500
The day that stops a nation - Australia's Melbourne Cup. They even have a public holiday in Victoria for the race day.
Can I make an admission - I have absolutely no interest in the race, will not have a "flutter" and don't even know which horses are racing. Yet, here in Perth, a nation away, about midday, nearly every citizen of Western Australia will glance at a Television screen and for 3 minutes or so be lost in the running of The Great Race. And many of those people here in Perth won't go back to work, they will imbibe too much of food and drink, and probably be impaired tomorrow too.
And back in the real world - the politicians continue to act as children working out whether they are real Australians or not. Our Parliament is embroiled in a saga of soap opera importance... are they only Aussies or are they DUAL citizens?
And people wonder why we hate, politicians, actually more than lawyers, used cars salespeople and insurance agents [ although they have died out!]
And an aside - does anyone actually read my Thought of the [To]Day - yesterday I had feedback across all my platforms and actually by phone too about peoples experience with ADD and ADHD... so thanks for letting me know that I am not just "pissing into the wind"

Maybe you should appreciate ADHD??

Did you exercise it today?

Thought for Today 57/500
Each mornings walk I listen to podcasts and today I was listening to Edward M. “Ned” Hallowell, who studies ADD and ADHD which he says are wrongly diagnosed as disease - he says, and I have long believed, that they are a different way to think. He adds that if it is a disease it should have been called the Entrepreneurs Curse - that active mind that makes people create stuff.
Along the same lines an active brain and connections allow you to super age - maintain your "marbles whilst growing old gracefully. To help this have an enquiring mind and do puzzles - jigsaws and cross words are interacting with you and keeping your brain healthy.
My adventure with outsourcing continued yesterday - the jobless young woman turned out to be the co-owner of a 6 person company who are really quite good at what they do - it could be called marketing or deception - but it is so annoying when the ruse reinforces your belief about a group of people - and with more than 1 billion of them it can't always be true... can it.?
