Bush Tucker Trial

While you lot freeze your knackers and/or clackers off, I'm suffering in my jocks in 40+! I've moved up country to Jimmy Wicket's holiday home (he's taken a bit of a shine to me), where I'm undergoing ordeal by barbie and esky, which involves being force fed juicy steak, yummy prawns and slabs of ice cool stubbies. At this rate, I'm very tempted to take up Jimmy's offer of becoming his stooge and making Oz my permanent place of abode.

Mind you, the heat brings its own risks. The whole state is dry as a nun's nasty, and everywhere is on bushfire alert. When you consider that almost 200 people lost their lives due to bushfires in this area a year ago, it puts a few Poms whingeing about a bit of snow, some disrupted trains and a lack of grit into perspective, doesn't it?

I'll leave you with that thought, and to show I'm not totally out of touch with the latest happenings in the Cannes of Kent, here's a couple of shots a reader sent me of how the Pleasurama/Royal Sands/Titanic development is coming along!

Nice to know you're still alive and kicking old thing! Just think of us poor Thanetonians surviving on Chrostmas leftovers while you enjoy some fried widgety grubs and wombat stew. I definitely think that the graffiti on that fence should be preserved and displayed as the first exhibit in the new Turnip Centre as an prime example of indigenous art, don't you?

It may be more than a coincidence, but on the tele text this morning evidence has been found by archaeoligists, showing that Neanderthal man was capable of symbolic thinking.

So that's why she's resigned as Mayor, and why she kicked the Mayor out before Christmas.
