Babies? and Sundries

Greetings gentle Reader.

Assuming that someone else is indeed reading this. If you are then please feel free to email with your thoughts. ( No rude ones please)

Of course, if no-one else is reading then nothing has changed, I am still talking to myself. What's worse is that I am answering myself as well. Now where did I put my little Pink Pills?


Sixteen year old came home today with a form from the school. Seems they have have started a scheme to discourage young women from having babies at a tender age.

She will be getting a Doll that does everything a baby does. She has to care for it everyday, even take it to school with her. I have politely explained that she cannot leave it with the Grandparents, ie; us, while she goes out and has a good time. For some reason her enthusiasm has wained a little. But she is stuck with it now, and next week she becomes a Mother, albeit a temporary one. I don't reckon a week is long enough, they should do it for three months.

On the other hand, while schools are trying to deter girls from making babies, our Government has announced that it will give a Grant of $3000 per child, to all new Mothers as of the first of June this year. Plus a payment of $600 a year for the first three years. If one was to add the Endowment payments of $250 a fortnight, one can only wonder who will win, the Schools or the Government



I was talking today with a friend in Vietnam. I came to the conclusion that I do indeed live in a "Lucky" country.

He told me that there is no such such thing as Unemployment relief, no free medical. He explained that a friend died from a burst apedicictis, because he could not afford the Hospital. They refused to treat him. He is paid aproximately the equivilent of $50 Australian a week, and he is the Manager of an internet service provider.

He does not own a car, only the rich and Officers have cars. The biggest motorbike he can get is a Honda 90cc, which is made in China. If he loses his job? then he loses his home. His wife is a Police Officer, so she has a job also, but they can only afford to live if they both work.

I suppose they were right when Uncle Ho said that under Communism all would be equal, he just did not explain that he meant equaly poor. Reminds me of Animal Farm. "All Animals are equal, some more equal than others"


All quiet on the "Neighbor from Hell" front today.

The local Inspector from the Housing Authority came around and saw his New?, front fence. Actually, when the people acroass the road moved out, he went over and literaly pulled their fence out of the ground, carried the bits across the road and erected the fence on his rented property. Suffice to say that his efforts bear no resemblance to the original structure. It ended up as a hotch potch of mismatched timber, different colors, with bits of old steel gate to fill the gaps. The puzzling part, is that his frontage is the same as that across the road, yet he is unable to make it fit? All Hell will let loose when he is told to take it down. Seems he has erected it on council property, ( he did not know where the property line was). He did not obtain a permit, and the Housing Authority does not permit fences that do not conform to their requirements.

Two and a half years ago, he took on a job to refurbish a boat. It is 30 foot long and stands around 15 foot high. Anyway the boat arrived and was duly towed into his backyard. He fiddled around with it for a week or two, then did nothing more. The boat is still there, covered with a leaky tarpaulin. Every time there is a bad storm he has to get in and bail it out. Maybe he does not realise that the water is supposed to be on the outside of the boat. On the other hand, could he be waiting for "The Day After", so he can become a later day Noah? one can only wait and see.



OH well!! it is 1.15 am and time for a read before bed. I am reading a rather strange book called "King Rat". It is about a man who is King of the Rats, and he is being hunted by a modern Pied Piper. or was it the same one? I am sure I will find out before the book ends. maybe i should start reading the last chapter first so I will not be left feeling unfulfilled if it does not work out. Oh well it was just a thought.

Good night all, and good morning to the rest. Peace be unto you, and may your Gods watch over you, whoever they may be.
