Only a matter of days after the British public voted to leave the European Union, Nigel Farage, the man who campaigned for more than two decades toward that goal, has announced his resignation from the party he co-founded. “During the the referendum I said I wanted my country back,” Farage told a press conference in…
If the gunman who shot and killed 50 people in an attack on the Orlando gay nightclub Pulse sought not merely to end life but to sow terror in the LGBT community, he couldn’t have chosen a more apt target. The worst mass shooting in American history is almost unfathomable in all of its particulars.…
WHEN?? Sorry, #sullivans was as hip as it ever was Then Pippa ‘*(big awww!!) trailer-park demented Pippa started kidnapping kids for cash on the most shark infested beach in the scorchlands, getting it on t.v. ~ and brand Awfulssie was bloody everywhere. EVERYWHERE. And you’re mining for coal in The Great Barrier Reef!! Like HELLO!! COAL!! BARRIER REEF! Yup.. Even China’s cutting back…
Australia was once considered “the lucky country”. We sold dirt to every continent and received all the fancy household goods and nick knacks we could possibly desire. Those other nations never bothered us because we were too stupid to be a threat, and we kept dealing the lovely cheap dirt out like a donkey following a carrot. What happened to those fruitful years of plenty? What happened to the seemingly endless economic prosperity that fuelled our first world society? Well, like most failed civilisations, Australians and the Australians who ran Australia were particularly too stupid. You probably have all the crazy ideas and common sense to see why we are screwed as a nation but I want to alert you only to the tipping point toward our decline.
The point at which this country made a turn for the worse was simply when Pizza-Hut restaurants started closing their doors. You…

WHEN they are away
they cannot gather together
and make big ideas dance flamenco;
whipping twisters in my anxious pillow head..
I will continue to box
those lustrous livid lettered words
that my little head’s
as peaceful as a flutter of butterflies..

It was a great shock.
The weather has been horrendous here this winter; still is; didn’t facilitate any outings or lunches/visits to Garryvoe promenade. Flu hit the Nursing home hard and being cooped up in a centrally heated environment meant it stuck. So Ma’s breathing got wheezier but the hope was the weather would improve and She’d get out to mobilise. She was under G.P. care and the resident nurse, hospital was pointless as they were packed with flu&CUH had Swine flu to add to mix.
The weather refused to break. Storm after storm after storm, power cuts, phones down, trees blocking roads, Flooding, High Tides, roads flooded in for days.
She declined rapidly during that time and though they fought hard to mobilise her; pleurisy seemed to have taken over from what I gather.
They got her to A&E, where she slipped away before even the doctor had a chance to see her.
Two of us were with her.
She was tired, missed Dad, and wanted to go home ever since he died.
Now she’s finished that journey; before doctors saw her in A&E, before any crowds gathered, she slipped away in her own time.
