Merry Xmas Everyone!

Yep I have been slack in not updating the blog, I beg forgivness, but life has been a bit hectic in more ways than one the last few weeks.

I think I may employ the services of a ghost writer as I really do want to keep blogging but time just doesn't permit it. So for the moment I will just plagerise Supamum. I don't think she will mind.

For Christmas this year I don't want much for myself, actually I want for nothing but health and happiness for my family, but a nice neck massage would be nice.

But could I please ask that all the people of the world remember that without diversity we learn little, without understanding we lack acceptance and without love of our fellow man, we are bitter...So can you sprinkle some understanding and spray some some love about in your nocturnal travels?

Could you help the so called leaders of this world understand that what they think is right is not always right and they are only human...No one can be expected to be infallible ( except God/Allah/ Yaweh and maybe the mortal leaders of all faiths) So some humility for them would be nice too.

Could we please, perhaps, have no disasters...Natural or manmade for 2006, just so the world can get itself sorted out a bit more. It has been proven we are pretty inept sometimes but mostly we are a generous , caring, compassionate society...Despite some leaders lack of response to some things.

Can I please ask that people realise that the world is a melting pot of differing opinions and that to enforce your beliefs or opinions on others does not make it the right one. Respect of others beliefs and understanding of cultural, religious, and other differences would go a long way to solving our troubles, I think.

Can you please make sure all the children of the world get something tomorrow night? Even if it is something little like a special shell upon a beach or some extra food, toys and such mean little when you have nothing.

For my family , could my children enjoy good health and happiness, I wish only happiness and health and the occasional sleep in.

For my friends, close and afar, I wish them all the joys of Christmas in the true spirit in which it is meant to be , that they enjoy family, friends, and fine health along with the occasional overeating/overdrinking of what ever they chose to indulge in.

A lot to ask for I know, Santa, and you are busy but without your help with some of the above, I fear for the joy of Christmas future
Merry Christmas

Blogging takes a back seat.

When the Council Agenda for Monday night arrives and it's about 6cm thick, time to blog becomes limited. Plus when another member of the household decides that a spring/summer/winter/autumn clean is needed, time to blog becomes even more limited.

Take a look at Daily Dave, he has some interesting thumbs up on Freaky Fran.

I really miss blogging but life is just so hectic that it must take a back seat for the moment.

I missed out on U2 tickets

Silly me thought I would just be able to log on to Ticketmaster and buy my tickets easily today, WRONG. They were sold out in 90 minutes and anyone trying via the web had no hope. Life is manic, I have managed to have one night at home this week, (Thursday) so I may get time to do Xmas cards.

Can someone do my Xmas shopping for me please?

A Sad Day!

Rest in Peace, Van Nguyen, you died a senseless death.

Sympathy to his Family and Friends.

Guido sums it all up well.

Lastly a Government Minister that calls an Australian citizen a Creep questions whether he is worthy of holding office.

Time to blog

It is becomming increasingly harder to find time to write much, but I will try my best to keep the blog going.

Last night was the Statutory meeting, this is the meeting where all Councillors are sworn in and where the Mayor is elected. I was fortunate enough to be nominated for the Deputy Mayor position and was duly elected.

Invitations are coming in by the dozen, many a Xmas function to attend. Life was busy before it's now bedlam now, but hey, I am loving it.

And the Xmas lights are nearly finished.
