 from Ellan Vannin at the BFD.

A friend of mine is currently looking after his grandson for three weeks while the parents are away for work. He retrieved the slow cooker from the back of the pantry and started cooking hearty one pot wonders for his growing 10 year old grandson. Every couple of days, the family gets an email with a photo of the young chap sitting at the kitchen table with a rather ample plate of food in front of him. So far, we have seen plates with slow cooked lamb shanks in gravy with mashed spuds and veges; slow cooked corned silverside with all the trimmings, beef stews, soups – you name it.

Shagging in the streets of Germany. When I saw it, I could not decide whether I was shocked , nauseated or simply beyond shocked or horrified. The thing that got me the most was my reaction: how would I have felt had I seen this when I was out doing my shopping today?

Today you hear of so many incidents,  I cannot call them stories ,  of cruelty , neglect and down right 'don't give a damn " that you get to the stage where you say ,  please don't go into the details it is too upsetting.   I  can't listen to any more distressing tales of what some one has done to a child, an animal,  or an elderly person.

As has been the case since the beginning of the now iconic “ Trump Rallies “ I watched on RSBN and got my dose of therapy from the sheer energy of President Trump, his supporters and his ability to create a “ vibe”. The atmosphere is beyond belief.  As I sit, in my living room, thousands of miles away, as a non American, I marvel at this man and how he can lift my spirits.

When all seems hopeless here in Australia when my faith in Politicians and Leaders is at an all time low, I watch a Trump Rally and I feel happy, excited and hopeful for the future. How the hell does he do it?

I guess HE doesn’t. I do. But he EMPOWERS me to do it.

Last night, I watched a segment from Alan Jones on Skynews. He was talking about the drought. 

Something that the city dwellers do not understand and seemingly choose not to understand, want to understand or even see.  My heart broke as I saw this seasoned and professional broadcaster, who came from the Land, nearly break down in tears at what is happening to our farmers, our animals and our People from the bush. 

This morning, I read a series of comments on social media that made me realise that, when Feather Douglas wrote some months ago, about the Great Divide, she was spot on.

 We all feel the burn of anger, outrage and patriotism these days. 
The heat of frustration. 
The passion that sometimes leads us to hate what we love. ...our Nation... yet love it we do. 
We are Patriots. And we will always be so.  We just need to know that our country says ": Back at you. ":  We need our Governments to love our Nations as much as We, the People, do.

I just had a reply to a tweet I made earlier today and it said “ the democrats don’t care. “  When I read it, I thought it was in relation to a comment I had made about a fake video of a woman in Syria grieving over the loss of her child – deceased.

Yet the dead child was blinking and opening and closing its mouth – it was so obviously a staged propaganda piece and I felt it was immoral to use this sort of thing to promote a political agenda.  Women who had really lost a child would find it very, very upsetting.

It was only when I thought a little more deeply about it that I realised that those simple words “ The democrats don’t care “ struck me.

That new article about the rugged men made me think of the  brave and real men that saved our community  of Peregian , Peregian Springs and Marcus Beach  .   That marvelous effort was not done by whimps  and chaps who have no get up and go , that effort was done and is done by good honest caring men .    The Fire Fighters put out a yearly Calendar  which helps fund their courageous   endeavours .   Now there is a set of rugged men ,  men who we can all be proud of.
