Senator Stephen Fielding Seeing Spots

Family First Senator Stephen Fielding has just returned from a study tour in America and is now undecided about the effect of carbon emissions on global warming. While the solar flares debate, which Senator Fielding has recently cottoned on to, has been around for many years, no evidence exists to link them to the current…

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Meaning: We come from dust; we return to dust. Except we don’t really, do we? Sure, people who get cremated turn back to ash, but that’s hardly environmentally friendly. The act of cremation is an energy inefficient CO2 spewing act – the last chance for members of our modern society to pollute this world. You…

Wanna buy a shed?

We’re probably going to be buying a shed. Wanna buy it off us? Here’s the story. The neighbours I referred to in the previous post have decided to sell (again – long story) but there may be a sticking point in the sale. They bought a 10m by 12m shed, that they cannot store anywhere…

Weekend Warriors

The magazines make it look glamorous. The mud is part of the fun. Roaring around the bush on a dirt bike is up there with the adrenaline pumping activities. Hell – I’ve done it – I know it’s fun! That is until someone gets hurt. I’m not talking about falling off your bike (been there)….
