Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Very funny Bear. I'm trying to do my best to save water but they keep putting up the price of good gin.

ah, it's all about "economics" .. let's ferget about paradoxes.

Do we really need Pokie machines? Or cigarettes? Cosmetics? At a pinch - motor vehicles.

Take away the booze and the Gummint is big strife .. heh.

Ok, this is quite peculiar .. I have my own blog, Wombat's Waffles. Somehow, as of this connection to WiFizone, am not allowed to connect, to it. So, am taking the liberty of writing to your blog via comments.. frustrating. Am not stupid. Have rung the 1300 "help" number .. but am redirected into several 'black holes'.

Should I get paranoid?

Davo, I don't know. Can't offer any help. Sorry.

Phil, there's a certain mechanical element to my drinking as well.

Hey - you changed your layout! (Sorry I haven't been on blog for ages)

It's pure stylish!

I just graduated - applied for a job in Australia btw. Maybe I can come and stalk you for real one day! haha

Davo, sorry. Has it been fixed yet?

Nora, congrats on you graduation. Hope you get the job. Then you can buy me a beer. Stalking me? You're boggling your mind... :-)

Nora, some REAL Scotch would be appreciated. So if you were to get that job, and I sure hope you do, I would call that a win-win situation. Fingers crossed...

All the best, Nora, my Christian friend... (and I say this even though I have, over time, said some very unkind things about Christian religions - and you should see the hard time I give to atheists...)
