I spent a few minutes at the bus stop this morning with a man who lives in the same flats as us. He’s 95 and far more active than me.

Today he’s dressed in his Blue Blazer and light trouser ensemble with a peaked cap to keep the sun out. Off to pick up his money then a hired kilt for a wedding at the weekend. Suddenly he starts telling me a dirty joke and I beat him to the punch line which makes him and I laugh out loud.

Men talk: Makes your day. :lol:

Rubbish. Dog's will shag anything !!

Correct, in most cases. Doesn't mean they're gay.

There are at least 2 bitches in heat around KG right now and believe me, it is canine chaos out there.

Quite a tension filled situation actually... it's the school holidays and the park is packed with oblivious yummies and toddlers and dogs hyped to the max.

Sounds like the big boy is leading you astray, LG. Think he would have some sense at his age. :lol:

From Today's Australian

Gordon Brown vows Australian vote reforms

* Peter Wilson, Europe correspondent

* From: The Australian

* April 09, 2010 12:00AM

BRITAIN is almost certain to adopt Australian-style voting reforms following promises of major change by Gordon Brown and private plans by Conservative rivals to copy some aspects of our electoral system.

The British Prime Minister said yesterday that the May 6 general election should be the last held under the traditional voting system, vowing to adopt Australia's "alternative vote" or preferential ballot system for the House of Commons and to replace the unelected House of Lords with a fully elected upper house that is expected to be called a senate ....................................

...........David Cameron's Conservatives, or Tories, will use elements of the Australian system to draw up legislation aimed at removing some of the more archaic aspects of the centuries-old system of running Westminster's "mother of all parliaments", such as its outdated rules for trying to maintain fair constituency boundaries..

Pat:

I did see the add for singles and i ken fine that this is you being nice tae me but am no really single, am i ? Perhaps the owners of the single site should specify, "single or no single but disnae care". Thats me tryin tae be helpful.

Oz...many sports team tournaments now use the "Paige play-off formula", an Oz creation which many folk like.

And noo it looks as if we are gonnae have an elected senate.....Libs wanted one years ago and the Cons fought it, noo the Cons are in power and they have decided it is a guid idea...the Libs wanted tae model oor senate after the Oz version: probably wullnae happen because the Cons wull want tae take fool credit and thon isnae a typo.

Aye its not a bad system for electing the Senate..

There are 12 Senators elected from each of the 6 state & 2 from eacch of the 2 territories Each Senator is elected for 6 years (2 parliamentary terms) with half the senate elected at each parliamentary election, territories 3 years only .

With the "Preferential" voting system there are a hell of a lot of candidates from all sorts of wierd parties (eg land rights for gay whales party .....well mibbee not but just as wierd). Last election there were 96 candidates. To get over this you can vote "above the line" where groups are nominated eg the Libs could be Group B And voting 1 for them would also cast you vote in the order the libs advised. You can of course vote sequentially for any number of candidates you fancy
