Hi Aunty Captain Mrs Archer!!!! and to all the people reading!!! I wish I had music on my blog. What's new? The news!!! - the ABC news is having a big update . They are having the radio news theme - Majestic something or other - 2000 -ed up. There will be at least 2 cameras and a plasma screen TV. The weather will be presented in a different way too. I like the very old news theme, I hope this new on echoes it. I wonder if I am old enough to write a 'Why oh why?" letter about the olden days? Yep, sure am!!! The police have been extra specially busy and have arrested three 15 years old boys with regard to the $2 million arson on the City Mission and they have also caught the three men who escaped from the Hayes Prison Farm. They are morons, as all were up for parole and/or release this year. June Bronhill has died. She was a lovely opera singer : more a singer of the people than Joan Sutherland. Well it has only taken me 9 years, 6 months and 21 days but I have finally changed the car registration into my name only, and only my name!!!zssxxxxxxxxxswwasdsxzxxzxxzvdd That was me mopping up the Earl Grey tea slopped onto the keyboard. Oops!! No wonder I am having trouble I am throwing the DingleDangle toy, typing, having a cup of tea and listening to the radio!! I also have a book but you can't type and read with my terrible typing style. I have picked up my latest pair of new green shoes and the man in the shop says that there will be MORE green shoes for Winter!!!! I can barely wait. Now I shall address Australia Day - tomorrow. I didn't realise that we are expected to 'celebrate' this day. The hierarchy demands that we celebrate this day. I don't know why. What is so special about it? Maybe it is because of the parlous amoral state of the ruling party, but I don't feel like celebrating what Australia is.....I reckon we should all make George Dubya's devil sign and freak everyone out!! Have you seen Mr and Mrs Dubya? Very amusing!!
