  1. Copied from Facebook - WAY TO GO AUSTRALIA MAYOR REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CANTEEN MENU... EXPLAINS WHY Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Perth suburb. The mayor of the Perth suburb of Joondalup, has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why... "Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Australia, its customs, its traditions, its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate." "They must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Australia." "They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Australians who so generously welcomed them." "They must understand that Australians are neither racist nor xenophobic, they accepted many immigrants before Muslims (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants)." "That no more than other nations, Australians are not willing to give up their identity, their culture." "And if Australia is a land of welcome, it's not the Mayor of Joondalup who welcomes foreigners, but the Australian people as a whole." "Finally, they must understand that in Australia with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain." The municipality of Joondalup was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia. "For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Australia, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Shariah." "If you left your country for Australia, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Australia than elsewhere." "Ask yourself the question, just once, "Why is it better here in Australia than where you come from?" "A canteen with pork is part of the answer."
  2. If it is all so simple to sort out, why didn't Kevin O'Seven and Juliar get it all fixed when they had the chance? And as for the sports grants - deja vu! Who remembers Ros Kelly. They who live in glass houses......
  3. Space Tut, tut. You're getting political again.
  4. Out shopping this afternoon, my daughter spotted this item. She said "Now I've seen everything."
  5. This model has now been discontinued, but one of its unusual features was the large air-bump pads on the doors like bubble wrap for your car. The rear door windows swung out a couple of inches instead of sliding down in the door. This allowed pockets in the door for things like a can or bottle of drink, etc.
  6. I get the point, but it got a good review. Quirky, but good.
  7. OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T KNOW AUSSIE SLANG WHEN THEY NAMED THIS....

    Pope Francis has a wry sense of humour. He tells the following story. "I was visiting the zoo. A man ran up and yelled, 'My mother-in-law just fell into the crocodile enclosure.' I said, 'What do you want me to do?' He said. 'Pray for the crocodiles.'"

    When I was in primary school, my parents and grandparents had a cabinet radio like the one on the left below. We lived in the country with limited stations, mainly 3AR and 3LO, both ABC stations. Later, we got a mantel radio (centre). When I left school in 1960 and moved to the city for work, and boarded, I bought myself a transistor radio similar to the one on the right, and could listen to the 'pop' stations, (3UZ, 3XY, etc) and could listen to those 'horrible' Rolling Stones and the like. Who knew they would still be performing 50 years later. We didn't have a TV at home, and would visit the neighbours to watch TV. It wasn't until the family moved to the city that I rented a Singer TV (23in B&W) for the house.

  12. This drive is so steep they have installed a speed hump to stop the car rolling down while they open or close the garage door.
