There are some crimes that should never be forgiven. Child molestation is one of the worst of them. Despite the legal chatter about whether convicted molester, Dennis Ferguson, can receive a fair trial in Queensland or not and despite the suggestion that new evidence against him may be flimsy, I contend that society does not … Continue reading Is there room on this planet for convicted paedophiles?
Seems like I’ve started the year off badly. Fallen off the wagon, you might say. I fear that 2012 is no better than 2011 and all the years that went before it. Guess I’m doomed to keep on searching for the holy grail, which in my case, turns out to be the perfect plastic container. … Continue reading There’s got to be a perfect plastic container out there!
I have often walked around our supermarkets and been amazed by the ridiculous number of products which are basically the same but take up so much room on the shelves. How many varieties of deodorants and shampoos and toilet paper do we really need? Entire double aisles are taken up with pet food. Organic, gluten-free … Continue reading Coles Australia makes lots of sense

This is an important report because it will help provide for the … Continue reading Melbourne Australia’s solution to insufficent public transport
Who would have thought that a teeny weeny crustacean would become a panacea (allegedly) for all ills in this world? You can’t go shopping without being confronted by Wild Krill, Red Krill, Super Krill, and Sooper Dooper Krill which is the King of Krills (allegedly). So what does krill oil promise? I googled it and … Continue reading The Thrill of Krill
They call themselves “Hot Listings” or” Million Dollar Listings” but these American TV shows make me squirm. While British TV shows about real estate treat the audience with respect, the American ones are embarrassingly phoney. Why? Well, it’s because they follow a formula of females in very high heels and strident voices dragging some individual … Continue reading Million Dollar Listings TV shows treat viewers as fools
With all that’s going wrong in the world of retail wouldn’t you think that a complaint about the nauseatingly dirty restrooms at the Chadstone Fashion Capital would be taken seriously? More about that later. It’s no secret that things are looking grim in the retail trade. Shops are closing down and going out of business. … Continue reading Chadstone Shopping Centre is suffering from budgetary restrictions
How can anybody in this day and age release such a stupid and embarrassing film as “Late Bloomers”? What was the writer and director Julie Gavras thinking when she made up a ridiculous story about a couple of senior citizens who are having marital differences over the theme of aging? Think of the possibilities of … Continue reading “Late Bloomers”-don’t waste your time and money on this film.
