The Bradfield Scheme - please!

 

bradfield

In 1929 a Brisbane based Engineer, Dr JJ Bradfield, came up with a plan. A plan that could change Australia forever. The Bradfield Scheme. The man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Underground Railway system and Brisbane's Storey Bridge came up with a plan to drought proof Australia forever. Yet it has never been implemented. Why?
I wrote this  a year ago - it needs highlighting today.

Everybody needs good neighbours

neigh

Neighbours when you get a bad one move into the street  it     effects everyone.  

A bit like neighbouring countries, really.

Doesn't it make you realize how much we depend on our good neighbours.   The call for help, I am going away for the weekend can you bring in the bins.   I am going to be gone for the school holidays can you water my pot plants and a few special things in the garden.   Oh and my mail , can you collect my mail .  We are only too happy to oblige our good, helpful, friendly neighbour because they do the same for us  or their neighbour .

How Dare you!

gr1

When Greta uttered those three words “How Dare You’, she effectively diffused the climate change argument.

Not only did she diffuse it, but she almost destroyed it.

How dare I have a different opinion to her?

How could anyone disagree with her?

The Era of the wimp, the coward and the ill informed.

ea1

It is beyond abhorrent that our elderly are being NOT cared for despite being in the so called care homes in  Australia. 

I am not sure who I am more angry with : the Government for allowing it to happen, the families for allowing it to happen or the so called care providers for allowing it to happen.

These people are the fathers and mothers, daughters and sons, grandparents of Australians. Too busy and too preoccupied to give a damn about those that gave them life.

More importantly, this disregard is a symptom of what is to come. 

The Era of the wimp, the coward and the ill informed.

Private enterprise is all for profit .

Head for the hills! The oceans are rising!

bom1

When Barack Obama and his … wife …. Bought an ocean front property at Martha’s Vineyard, the world went a bit crazy. After all, it was the Barry /Barack/Obama/Soetero guy who announced back about 10 years ago that the oceans were rising and we had to do something to stop this inevitable disaster that was about to turn us into the second coming of Noah.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Climate Change

pol2

Were they were not so sad, those espousing the idea of massively created, and thereby possibly cured, climate change by human beings would be belly-laughable.

Take a few examples.

Several large groups of caring, concerned Planet Earth supporters decide to protest. They contact each other by cell phones and computers, both of which require Earth harming batteries and other difficult to recycle items.

Men, it is time to defend your sperm.

spe

I belong to the group known as baby boomers – the ones that lived through the “ burn the bra “ and early feminist days of the pill, the equality of the sexes and the general liberation of women from the kitchen.  At the time, I did not realise that my life had gone from one of comfortable domesticity to one of 5am starts, 10 pm finishes and a pay cheque that largely went to childcare providers.

As a woman, I was proud of what we achieved then. But now, I am not so sure we did anything other than bite ourselves in the bum. And in turn our menfolk in to pawns, pansies and poofters.

Scooters, scooters everywhere and no one seems to think.

mb2

A few years ago the only scooter in our area was my late husband's Mobility scooter.   Registered with the  Transport Department , all legal and  above board.   ( Australian vernacular for legal for those of you unfamiliar with our turn of phrase  )

The Mobility Scooter as a mode of transport is usually owned by someone who used to drive a car  and is aware of the dangers and is much more alert.

It’s not the Battle of the Sexes but the Battle FOR the Sexes. NSFW

joan

Who do you support? Men and women or non men and non women?
Think about it.
Diversity is killing us.

Every day, we are embracing men who want to be women and women who want to be men and all the while, I have to ask…

Australia is a Thirsty Mother.

d2

Life has become so bloody miserable that I feel like a stranger in my own Australia.  I am supposed to apologise for a crime I did not commit 200 years ago; I am supposed to apologise for being born with white skin, which, to be honest, is a curse in the sunburned country.

Having had melanomas, skin cancers, all manner of things white skin related, I suspect that I have  been well and truly punished for my white skin. I don’t really need to be told that I should pop off and shoot myself for having been born here. I think that I have suffered enough.

Shame on you Australia - Bloody Shame.

en

I read an article on  ( shudder ) ABC this morning. I don’t normally go any where near that viper pit of leftist lunacy but I received an email from a friend who felt that I should read this particular article.

Well, as I said to him, it made my blood boil with anger.

What kind of country have we turned into?

I have to laugh or I would cry.

" I live across the fence from a Housing Commission set of flats. 

The father is a bastard of the enth degree. 

He treats his daughters like vermin. But that is OK because he is Indigenous.

Coles or Coal?

coles1

Well Coles, after all these years I bid you a sad farewell. I genuinely thought that I was doing my weekly grocery shop, not attending a political rally.

It is IGA from here on.

Withdrawing your sponsorship from the Alan Jones Show is a move that will cost your bottom line.

Oh, I know that my pennies are but drops in the bucket in the scheme of things. But they are MY pennies and they mean a great deal to me.

If you wish to join me in my protest, let Coles know. 1800 061 562.

Heroes or Zeroes

if

Sports. 

If I ask myself who I truly respect and admire in the field of Sports, I would have to say Israel Folau and Margaret Holmes a Court.

Two Christian sports people who stood up for their beliefs in spite of fierce back lashes downunder.

Compare their sacrfices to what has happened to Adam Goodes and Colin Kapernick and you will see the pattern: two defended their faith and one defended his right to be a racist.
