Well it started with Kninginnedag, my brother played violin and I also wanted to do something. So I thought I'd better go to sing. I searched on Youtube a song, and then I heard opera songs, which I found very beautiful, that 's when I started singing

I'm sure I haven't heard it for centuries.
Some of the vidclips people post for songs are dreadful - this one is as "aw shucks" as a kitten.

|putting out the fire|
A special day for JJ, as her mum and my cuz drove from Kyabram to Fkn for lunch.
|JJ's mum, my cuz #4,242,243, and aunty|
JJ is a casual aged care worker at an RSL nursing home. She has a healthy curiosity about history, etc, and has bonded well with some of the extremely old residents of the Kokoda wing. After seeing this display she'll have something else to chat about with her residents.

After 3 months she has not so much as looked at the second one I bought her.
Hers takes fully 30 to 60 seconds to respond to each mouse click. She can't access work files/ emails without using Chrome, and bitches and moans the whole time we work on the problem "together". I made this second attempt to upgrade her because it was a run-out model with Windows 7 installed. While she has long resisted changing to Windows 7, Windows 8 would drive her to the knife block in the kitchen. Of course, I will get there first, because she seems to assume I can help her. No, I will use a self-service check-out before I attempt to use Windows 8 again. She would be on her own.
Went to bed.

|Perhaps all of our politicians should be forced to wear corporate logos on their parliamentary clobber,|
so we could identify the names of their real sponsors
There will always be people who choose to marginalise themselves or feel alienated from society, but the growth of class divides is exacerbated by the willingness of our governments to marginalise people through poor planning: through planning, for example, that alienates suburbs full of people by denying them transport or the means to move freely.
Those who support losing [poor, community style] baseball teams, he says, stop going to games early in the season if their team has no hope of winning.
