Sunday, 30 January 2005 At last, a little bit of cool weather and I have whiled away 5 hours this afternoon catching up on sleep and I feel so much better , well relative to a real person anyway!!! Well done, congratulations John Howard, I am sure all of Australia supports your lambasting of the UN. What in the world do you think you are doing? DO NOT stick up for Dubya. We are not American, we do not want to be Americans : in the same way that Americans do not want to be Australian. Oh, I forgot, together with Mr Ruddock, Little Johnny is trying to find a way to make life even more of a hell for Mr Habib, the Australian just released from American custody. The poor man has been released, no charges laid, yet our PM had decided he IS guilty, if only they could prove it. He will be under constant supervision, no doubt by ASIO, and he will not be allowed to benefit from his ordeal. Benefit?? If only the internet had sound – I am squealing this like Monica from Friends. How could any monetary compensation ever make up for losing 3 years of his life? For false accusations? For torture? It never can. I hope he sues the pants off everyone he can. Why the Government would not support him is beyond me. Oh, right, he is guilty despite the lack of evidence and his release. There, I have finished now it is safe to read on if you had your eyes closed. I have read more books, watched more of Carnivale which I absolutely lurve!! An made special dog food, and bought even more special Dr Harry large dog dog food. I have cut out a shirt and fiddle with the pattern to add some gathering and made some more beaded raspberries on my stump work. Tomorrow I have to go out to do bank money transfer things that can’t be doe on the Net, but then , should the weather be cool, I plan to sleep some more!!!
