    Old Ozzie, I started out trying to eggstact what egg was cracking up about but I gave up and decided to have fun with some yolks.”

    And funnily enough….Tim Blair uploaded a post today called “Double Yolking Epic Enters Final Phase”. I kid you not!

    Driveway concreting: Not a one man job.
    I’m pooped.

  3. Pee wees . We have a resident pair of the screeching finger waving commo morons.
    The resident male, in his best lefty character has developed a hatred of the pee wee male that lives in our smoke tinted windows. Every morning the clown attacks himself in the window until he almost knocks himself unconscious. He returns (no doubt with a king sized headache) at about 4pm and spends an hour screeching at the window.
    I envision a ‘Road Runner’ outcome with his long screechy beak protruding from the back of his head. I’m a bird lover – well, except for lorikeets, cockies and the Labor voter next door – but pee wees, CMFEU screechy thugs.

    Christopher Clark’s The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914goes into great detail on the diplomatic toing and froing and the buried understandings and red lines that were in place as the time drew near. An effort to get through it all, though.

  6. Katherine Hepburn! That gravel voice.
    I need to lie down.
    Africa Queen – everything is downhill since then, even with the clown Bogart trying to spoil her brilliance.

  7. I am not Tim Blair but I read Tim Blair’s blog!

    On the chook and egg order, the punch line has been lost.

    I’ll let you know which arrives first.


    Slowly shakes head.

    World War I was fought by very brave infantry chaps.

    They stayed in dugouts in the front lines, rarely leaving them except when sent on attacks.

    The attacks always consisted of jumping over the front of the trench, and then running forward. Each soldier was carrying a hundred pounds of useless gear and his rifle.

    Before he got to the Germans he was machinegunned, with most of the Allied soldiers dying.

    Meanwhile the heartless generals lived in chateaus, where they feasted well while guzzling wine.

    This went on for years.

    That is all.

    ooof, pretty gut-wrenching. Grandpa (UK) survived but never worked again. Big big impact on family even 100 years later in many ways.
    Thanks Top Ender for your enduring interest and contribution to our understanding of our history.

    We watched a re-run of Blackadder Goes Forth last night, the last episode of the 1914-18 series.

    Heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking. It always moves me to tears.
    Fantastic scripting and great comedy, with the final sting in the tail.

    On which note, I depart this thread.

    See y’all later on da new one.

    Me, too Lizzie. It is very well done, very well done indeed.

    Bill Shorten not very Dan supportive this morning, some hints 1 November easing being brought forward.

    Polls not as good as hoped, no doubt.

  13. Wonder how much effect can be wrought by bothering federal members in Victoria?
