ro last time I was in WESTern Australia - Perth, Freo, Mundaring all the folks I interacted with kept introducing me as Sandy from "back east" with a slightly 'Mick Taylor' glint in their eye. Gorgeous bloody part of the world though. - Sandy
Ro yes our scaffolding is being dismantled from right us, as for dental problem. From what my mum tells me we did have a Commonwealth Dental Scheme and was dismantled by the Howard Costello government in it first term under the guise and this is what mum says "a non core promise" goodbye Commonwealth Dental Scheme and as like than is now not a peep out of MSM (esp the Murdoch journos that was when she stopped her subscription to News Ltd, she realised that the news very very limited, all opinion but no news) and just as quick Howard relaxed the cross media ownership and gift to our Tsar, Murdoch - Sheilah
Agree with you Nick. It wouldn't help the 3 yr olds living with violence, and would scare all of them. There are other ways to do it with little ones, as you say. - Gracie123
Hi Rhoda. Wish the dental problem was fixed. Pity that dentists have got extra clever and in the process deserted basic dentistry and priced themselves out of a lot of the market.
Ro, WA seems like a country within a country. Interesting place. - Gracie123
'officially', ooooer, is that on "Gumnuts Club' letterhead or something?
'peculiar and meaningless comments?' No no, I would never plagiarise your work
I always have fun ferret. - David
I'm sure most of the other readers are pretty sick of the 'banter' between the two of us, so I'm officially cutting you off now David. Perhaps you can post peculiar and meaningless comments to yourself. Have fun tiger. - Nick
Only because you got distracted by my comment before you made one.
Reading your posts is a must, laughter is a good medicine remember.
Nothing wrong with a different opinion. Facts are a different thing however.
I couldn't hear you laughing for the same reason I couldn't see how many fingers you held up the other day. - David
I suspect it's because most people playing soccer or rugby aren't moving at 30 - 40 kph on the sports field. Nor are they sharing the field with cars travelling at 60 - 80 kph. - Nick
having just listened to the repartee on PBS,on SBS and than after analysis of the of the journo's (just wish we had this caliber of journos), no it was not scripted he he got his message out, and that was about the affordable healthcare. He was determined to get that out as the Reporters concurred and he was appealing to the younger generation to get insured. O'Bama was funny but on message but also a lot of ad lib.
As for Australian Pollies yes I do remember the Julia Gillard incident and yes it was quick witted and fast. - Sheilah
Well that's just not true David. I haven't disagreed with anything in this article. Nor did I disagree with Elle's article either. Flattered that you're reading all my posts though.
Having said that, what's wrong with having a different opinion to other people. Or would you prefer everyone just went along with the crowd ? - Nick
