Aunties Murder Nissan

23 February 2018 - 06:17


BANGKOK — Sunday was the last straw for the Saengyotrakarns. Once, someone blocking their driveway kept them from getting to the hospital with a broken leg. Then there was the time their dad died because they couldn’t get him to the hospital in time.

Since they moved into their home in east Bangkok, people have always parked in front, blocking their driveway. So after one of the resident aunties went Lizzie Borden on a white Nissan Navara, smashing its windows Sunday with an axe, they went on the offensive today in the court of public opinion.

The "bluey" Returns

23 December 2017 - 05:39

YES YES YES

After 30 years of being forced to carry a crappy Burgundy "EU" Passport post BREXIT the "Olde Bluey" returns, and about bloody time

The EU passport is useless for frequent travellers even extended version is on 48 Pages, I am onto my fifth or sixth one in 25 years. My original "Old Bluey" was a hardback with 96 Pages so I hope the 96 pager is making a comeback.

I will be first in the Queue haha

The Ashes

23 November 2017 - 04:31

If you are not a Brit or an Aussie then "The Ashes" probably mean bugger all to you, much the same as World Series and Super Bowl mean jack shit to me.

But I am a Brit / Whinging Pom (if you hadn't noticed) and made more interesting because I share an office with an Aussie, bragging rites etc

To the uninitiated "What are The Ashes?" A Cricket Test Series between England and Australia. Back in   1882 Australia beat England for the first time on English soil at the Oval and the headlines read "English Cricket has died and the body will be cremated and the Ashes taken to Australia"

The following series was in Australia and the English Captain Ivo Bligh vowed "To Regain Those Ashes"  and English Media were quick to pick up on this and labelled the tour as "The Quest to Regain the Ashes"

England won the series and were presented with a 15CM / 6" tall terracotta urn said to contain "The Burnt Ashes" of a bail by a group of women in Melbourne amongst whom was Florence Morphy who ended up marrying Ivo Bligh the English Captain.

And hence it all began "The Ashes Series" aka Bragging Rites

Dumb stupid facts amuse me
