    Silly people. They just don't get it.

    I was at a breakfast buffet last week.
    I usally don't eat breakfast but with jet lag I was starving.
    I had my plate full of various cheeses, eggs and meat. And cucumbers and tomatoes.
    One of the people i was with said,oh he only allows himself to eat eggs once a month.
    I just said I got healthy and lost 50 pounds eating this way. I don't think he understood my lack of carbs and bread was the key. All he saw was the cheese and eggs lol

    I don't really know, but I kick myself for not eating them earlier in my life.

    They are up there with my favourite foodstuff now.

    That name takes me back to when I was quite young and "Oh My Darlin' Clementine!" was a popular song of the time:



    It seems to be treated mainly as a childrens song on YouTube, but it's actually a 19th century American ballad/folk song (though I'm not quite that old...:wideyed:), and there was apparently a film of the same name in the mid 1940s.

    We have a postal survey from the ABS here in Australia asking a question regarding same sex marriage, you vote yes or no to it.

    So I thought I would fly the "colours" in my avatar for a few days in support of some gay friends we have, who would like to get married legally.

    Same here I have been with my female partner for 47 years and we reckon the same thing.

    There are to many equal opportunity bigots in the Australian Federal government, for it to be passed through for a legal vote, or even put out for a referendum.

    This survey has cost over $100 million with no guarantee that it will ever get to the vote either.

    I've had clients that have moved out of state to get married. Shame. I don't even have a clue why it's like this. Love is love right?
