The last season was the worst yet.


I still have a few episodes left but I've really enjoyed it. The assassination attempt and now all the backstabbing going on to get his wife as Vice President has kept me interested again.

Probably it's all that standing on tiptoe trying against all odds to look like Reacher.

I thought the Hollywood trick was for all the other actors to walk in a trench when in a scene with Cruise?

Matt, you grew up in Philadelphia, right?

How many times has Matt run up those stairs we see in Rocky, I wonder?

I don't think I've ever seen this show. I've seen clips over the years but I don't remember it being on TV here. I'm sure it was but I was too young at the time and I don't remember it ever being rerun.

Not a bad payday. 8)

The first season of House Of Cards was brilliant, the second season started great but declined rapidly halfway through. The first three episodes of season three and things haven't improved much.

I took a break from this show for a couple of months. Towards the end of season 3 things picked up again. Onto season four now.

Banana tea or bananas before bed. Must be something about nanas, I'll have to try.

I finally went to bed at 3am and switched off the 3:40am alarm. Just woke up now after 3 and a half hours sleep.

Still feel like crap but no worse than yesterday. :(

I was wondering about this little short story I came up with years ago.

I searched to no avail a few weeks back but found it no problems at 2:30am now.

Ahh the fun we used to have. :D

Well it was the damnedest thing. Stormy and I are trying to out run that great beast, Stormy screaming like a little girl because he's spilling his beer. Me screaming like a little girl thinking this is it, it's the end. My life flashing before my eyes and I get this brilliant idea of doing the "Serpentine" move. I'm yelling at Stormy, "Serpentine, Serpentine!"

So here we are running through the bush in zig zag motion and this completely disorientates the great beast and he trips over his own feet and comes to a crashing halt. Smacking his head on the ground and knocking itself out cold. Just as we're looking at one another and thinking our troubles are over and we're about to crack open another couple of tinnies, we can hear Shirts screaming in the distance, still being carried away by the giant Tse Tse Fly.

Stormy says, "What do we do, finish our beer or save Shirts?" I reply, "You nut, we have plenty of beer, but there's only one Shirts, Come on."

So we are on the run again and I tell ya, we would have given Usain Bolt a run for his money over that first 100 metres, after that Stormy got a stitch in his stomach and that slowed him down, but nothing was going to stop me from saving the day. I whipped out my trusty Smiley slingshot, and started to fire off rock after rock at this giant fly. Unfortunately my aim was way off and I was spraying rocks everywhere but into the target.

Next thing, I see this aluminium glint in the corner of my eye go flying through the air. Stormy has thrown an unopened can of VB at the Fly, sconing it right between the eyes. The Fly screams out, "I'm hit!" Well I don't know if that's what it said but it certainly gave out a yelp and loosened his claws around Shirts as she tumbled towards the earth.

Quickly I pull out a picnic blanket from my golf bag. Why I have a picnic blanket in my golf bag, I have no idea, because this was no picnic. Anyway Stormy and I have this blanket spread out and we're running to get underneath Shirts before she hits the ground with a terrible thud. We're jumping to the left and then the right trying not to miss Shirts as she gently floated down into the safety of the blanket. It was lucky Shirts wasn't a wet T Shirt otherwise she would have travelled faster through the air.

As we all got up and dusted ourselves off, we all looked around and there wasn't a sign of trouble anywhere. In fact there weren't any signs at all. "How the hell do we get out of here without directions?" Stormy says.  "Easy." I reply. "Just like in the movies, all three of us walk off into the sunset."

 :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

Ive been having hot water with lemon and honey for my sore throat, so I think that must have me wide awake at 1:30am. I'm supposed to be up in two hours for work.

That just ain't gonna happen!

I wish it would happen, very very very soon.  :D

It popped up on FaceBook a week or two ago that MASH ended 34 years ago.

I was wondering is it still being shown around the world? It is here in Australia on Channel One and probably on cable but it just keeps going and going. Once they show all episodes they go straight back to the beginning again. It's never off the air!!

Absolutely brilliant. There's more to the Boss than what we see on stage.

Laying in bed with a terrible cold

Blowing my nose, feeling so old

Going on holidays, this time next week

Gotta get better, get back on my feet

Laying on the beach or lying by the pool

With used tissues all round me, I won't look so cool

Three more days of work then its a well deserved break

Hopefully by then, this body will no longer ache

Just wrote this ditty as the board is so slow

Hope you enjoyed it, now it's time to go

Great film. How did this story take fifty years to be told?

Story of three black women who worked at NASA during the early days of the space program.
