Well, as a great supporter of Cardinal Pell, I am delighted that Justice has finally been served. Back in August of last year, I wrote an article about this miscarriage of justice, and I have never wavered from my belief that he was stitched up because he was uncovering dirt in the Vatican finances. He had to be silenced and the easiest way to do that was to accuse him of being a pedophile. Job done. 

With the mood of the general public heavily in favour of believing the accuser rather than the accused, all semblance of the rule of Law was thrown out the window and " reasonable doubt " became " reasonable cause."

We are pretty much all out of work. We are all confined to our homes or beds by the invisible enemy with the most expensive & disruptive name in recent history – “Covid-19” – one that has world changing implications. Truly a Force Majeur of epic proportions. But having said that NZ made a bold call . We are an island nation and time is of the essence.

China is coming out of this with an amazing force of their own and buying up many stocks at bargain basement prices, or so I hear. I read a book called the “Next 100 years”, written by George Friedman, he said back in the early 2000’s that China would start fragmenting in 2020. Says it right on the cover. Will be interesting to see what happens?

I guess every cloud has a silver-lining if you know how to play the game. It makes me wonder what are the benefits of all this, if there could be any?

There will never ever be a world free of the contagion that was unleashed upon us. This virus is here to stay.  Like measles and whooping cough in the past, a vaccine will come. Until then, we need to accept it is with us, and it is here forever.  This entire shutdown of our economies, our ways of life and our day to day lives is like the polio epidemic of decades passed. But, like polio, a vaccine will come. Until the next virus lands on our shores. Some images may be distressing.

People are whining about not being allowed to go out and they are seriously disturbed because their ability to get smashed avo on toast has been curtailed? . The fatcats are grizzling about no pay increases. Raylene Castle " generously " agreeing to a 50% paycut to $400,000?
 
I just took a hit of $1200  a year - it is a disaster for me and the loss of income from a client is a disaster for them and their massive rural community.
 
All the money going to unemployed dropbeats who sit at home and watch TV all day while the Nation sees fruit falling to the ground and having to import labour to pick it up? It makes my blood boil.
 
I am so upset right now. That $1200 is the difference between paying my bills and not paying my bills. And it is not just about me.  Regional Australia is already on a knife edge right now and the people in the bush will lose out. Again.  Add a comment

My sister-in-law sent  me this delightful   poem .      If I could write a   poem that has that lovely rhythm , it is exactly what I would say.     It has to have been written by an Oldie , the bit about the booze is a winner and let's hope we can all get out the gate without too much of a struggle when all this is over.
As a little observation I have to say at our local beach   the children that are enjoying the water and the building of sand castles  with their young families is a joy to see.    Everyone keeping a  distance between the groups, being very responsible and having fun.  
At times like this we need to have a laugh and remember that we will get through this. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.   I don't know who wrote it but whoever you are, thank you.  Add a comment

One day we are going to look back on this situation and say " where did we go wrong" and we will say with one resounding voice " China "

I have to say that Islam is getting a fair swerve right now. No worries in that direction. Despite the fact that they are still having weddings and doing what they want because they, apparently, live, under a different law system within our country. But we know that Islam is a no go area in Australia.

One of the most beloved young ladies in Australia, Miss Bindi Irwin, got married and it was a small and private ceremony. No problem if you are Moslem. Go for it. Are we truly One Australia? 

Or have we become an island continent of divided People's, divided States, divided ideals, divided ethnicity and our Federal Government is going to bankrupt itself trying to sort the mess out.

While we are tucked up at home bitching and moaning about being locked inside, yes, we applaud our incredible medical staff. Not knocking or diminishing their huge input right now. But the silent heroes are the cleaners, the tradies, the truckies, the garbos and the guys and gals out there keeping the country ticking over.

This morning I went out to pick up Redhead and go shopping. A few days ago, I told you about a retail store that sorted out a delivery of a new TV and recorder for a very cheesed off young lady of 87 who had lost her lifeline: the television.

It all went well. The TV and recorder were delivered and a nice chap turned up to unpack the goodies, set everything up and get her back to normal: she could start moaning about the number of repeats on TV and that there was nothing to watch.

 Life was back to normal.

The Singing Detective is in a world of pain and we are feeling his pain.

With what is happening, I am reminded of that classic book and movie “ The Singing Detective “ when  the central character is locked inside his own body, unable to move and is forced to retreat inside his mind to survive.

He feels like he is a prisoner because he is one. The Doctors pouring over his body and trying to work out the treatment because they know there is no cure.

We, the People, are helpless. We, like “ The Singing Detective “ , can only lie low and hope like hell the powers that be know what they are doing.

This too, shall pass springs to mind, but, until it does, we are in a world of pain.

In the meantime, we pray and, probably, for the first time in many people’s lives, really mean it.

We may believe that this is about a virus. We may FEAR this virus. We may dread what will happen in the next few months but I do not think we have seen anything yet.

China has been setting up the master chess play for decades. Quietly buying vital infrastructure in Australia and elsewhere- including its water and agricultural producing companies – Australia’s ports – leased for 99 years – and it has bought the State of Victoria for a who knows what payment to who knows who and for how knows how much.

As even the most naïve of people in the Northern hemisphere would know, Australia is the jewel in the crown of any greedy Nation.

After all, we have Uranium, Iron Ore, Coal, vast tracts of land capable of agricultural plunder. In short, Australia is a goldmine of wealth.

What are we achieving ?    The planes are still bringing in people who should have returned weeks ago.  They knew they were on count down.  Our borders should have closed and stayed closed to everyone. The mere fact that planes are landing bringing in hundreds of returning  residents ,  all over the  country is subjecting some people to risk.  

Whether it be the baggage handlers, the staff on the plane, the customs officials, then the Coach drivers taking them to the smart Hotel .   I feel for the Hotel staff, the owners may be making money out of this  venture but I wonder how the general populace  will feel about  staying in those rooms after all this is over.   I have a feeling that those Hotels will be given a very wide berth.     Hotel staff in particular will be hoping that they  stay safe from contamination.      I can imagine how the family of such workers must feel,  am I safe today , will I be   safe tomorrow.

I have just spent a great afternoon! I cannot believe  how much fun I have had. All because Redhead’s TV blew up. Yes, I know that sounds terrible, I really do. But it meant that I could spend an hour or 3 breaking the boredom. 

And I started to think of Grandma Mazour. Janet Evanovich’s marvellous older lady who continues to amuse me and amaze me after so many years. 

"Grandma has a .45 long barrel that she keeps hidden from my mother. She got it from her friend Elsie, who picked it up at a yard sale. Probably it was in Grandma's purse. Grandma says it gives the bag some heft, in case she has to beat off a mugger. This might be true, but I think mostly Grandma likes pretending she is Clint Eastwood."

Well, I know that Grandma Mazour isn't Redhead, but this Wuflu stuff is bringing out the Grandma Mazour spirit in my Mum.  Her TV gave up the ghost today and she would have shot it had it not already died. In the middle of a virtual lockdown, how dare a TV die? Not that there is much to watch, but that is not the point. But Mum would have bloody shot it if she had a .45 for being such an inconsiderate piece of crap.

It had NO RIGHT to switch off when we are stuck at home - if Trump was our President he would not have allowed it. Well, OK, she didn't say that, I did. But you get my drift.

Well, the Wuhan Wog aka the Coffin Flu, seems to have hit the world with a sledgehammer.  It has only been a short time, but I am starting to lose track of what day of the week it is and my whole routine of daily life seems out of whack.

I am sitting here at three o clock in the morning and the possibility of sleep is a distant hope. The neighbours across the fence must be suffering from cabin fever or financial distress syndrome. Either way, the proverbial has hit the fan tonight. The last time I sent an article it was about little children. This time, it is about adult upon adult and it is not good. People, it seems, cannot cope very well with not being able to knock about with their mates. The stuff that is going to go down in this shut down is going to be very bad. It has already started.

A few weeks ago, a few months ago, we were all wandering about, getting our cars serviced, having a breakfast and coffee out, meeting with neighbours friends and family. Today, tonight. It is all over.

Life, as we know it, appears to be over. For now or will it be forever changed?

Today, I sit, alone, in lock down, pondering what the future will hold and how the hell we will cope moving on? After all, China, whether it admits it or not, WAS the source of the virus that has brought the Western World to its knees, our economies to the point of collapse and our lives to a punctuation point that may be a semi colon, a comma, but could also be a full stop. 

Oh, the outpouring of love for China and its Citizens has been enormous. The outrage from the liberal left that racism could prevail - to such an extent that Italy encouraged people to hug a Chinese person. Well, that worked out well, didn't it?

Our outpouring of humanity, open borders, love of our fellow Citizen and embracing of all creeds colours, ethnicity and background has been bloody marvellous, hasn't it? An overwhelming success. We are now fighting for our lives.

GOD BLESS OPEN BORDERS? NO! NO! A thousand times NO!

Western Australian Senator Glenn Sterle wrote a letter to Deputy PM and Transport Minister McCormack about the conditions our brave and hardworking truckies are facing in this Virus Crisis.

He started his letter with 

Over the last 48 hours, I have received alarming reports from transport associations and drivers about situations that Australia's truck drivers are facing at roadhouses across the country." 

Alarming is an understatement. This letter outlines UNACCEPTABLE conditions and we, as a Nation need to speak up, speak out and DEMAND that our Truckies are looked after and given proper access to decent food, toilets, showers and comfort while they do the tough job of allowing us access to food, toiletries, personal hygiene items and some degree of comfort.

This neglect is a National disgrace.

Do you want me to list the things you are not allowed to do....    the most mentioned is ..  Do not gather in numbers.   Stay a good distance away from one another.       But what is Queensland doing today,    Visiting Polling Booths, Election of Councils.    Standing in line  , filling out forms,  gathering in a building.     Surely it was not that important that it could not have been postponed.   All the Councils around the State were diligently doing their job  and I am sure could have continued to perform well until this crisis is over.

In the middle of this sea of confusion and  concern, I could not help but write an article about how I feel about this global lockdown and  pondering : what is this really all about?  The Chinese Virus or the CHINESE VIRUS, and what is the difference. 

It may be that we are fighting the East v West, the final showdown, the Chinese Winnie the Pooh against America - the ultimate and penultimate fight to change the world as we know it - and yes, that is what this is really all about - Tigger and Winnie gambled and are about to lose because President Trump is the author now. He is writing the story and the characters in this story are up " the creek without a paddle. "

President Trump is in charge of this narrative and poor Winnie and Tigger are most unhappy. He has laid down a deadline: Easter. The Resurrection. Strange? No, not really. Our entire way of life has been brought to a closure because of a Chinese Virus that may or may not be the problem. I choose to think that it is the CHINESE VIRUS.

After all of this time, Brenton Tarrant has now chosen to plead guilty to charges laid on him in relation to the Christchurch Mosque Massacre... why am I getting a feeling that this is rather unusual?

You may remember that Mr Tarrant stole a life of bliss from a little known and often disregarded Nation at the bottom of the world when he allegedly entered a mosque in Christchurch and allegedly killed 51 Moslems back in March 2019.

I use the word allegedly with caution - up until today, Mr Tarrant, the " Right Wing Trump loving hater of Islam " had plead not guilty. For some reason, he has done a complete about face and chosen to plead GUILTY.

Why now? Why suddenly decide to confess his sins and say " Fair cop, mate. "

We are in a dark time at present, all around the world. Life, as we know it, has been turned on its head and we are all in some kind of futuristic nightmare that, when we wake each morning, is worse than the day before.

My beloved Mum, Redhead, is battling on with great fortitude and gusto as is her Nature. There is not a virus or crisis on this planet that will knock the stuffing out of that 87 year old Lady!

But one thing has caused great consternation. As a Law abiding, decent human being, my Mum has always voted.

As this weekend approaches, she is faced with a decision that is beyond her normally rational and commonsense approach to life: to break a commitment of a lifetime and stay at home and not vote – or risk becoming ill in order to do what is her Duty and her Honour. Queensland Council elections and two bi elections. 

Well, here’s the thing.

Back in 2005, the then Health Minister, Tony Abbott had some sage words to say.  I provide an excerpt here for us to reflect upon and wonder what on earth went wrong in our Nation when we saw him not only lose his role as Prime Minister, but later voted out of his Parliamentary Seat and replaced with a wind turbine loving leftie with no clue. 

PANDEMIC PREPAREDNESS

Monday, 2 May 2005

Source: INFECTIOUS DISEASES CONFERENCE

" On February 4 last year, I read an urgent brief from the Chief Medical Officer. Ministers receive all sorts of urgent departmental documents, usually to do with cabinet, legislative or regulatory deadlines. This one made the stuff of daily politics and routine administration seem utterly trivial. It advised of a possible re-run of the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1919. Since then, a significant part of Australia's health policy establishment has been considering how to deal with a far-from-merely-speculative influenza emergency which could dwarf the health
consequences of a conventional terrorist attack. "
