Been very busy these last couple of weeks. At least, that’s the excuse I’ll use for not getting through my To Do list.
Was listening on the radio to some Australian election campaign news, then to some American election campaign news. And it strikes me that we don’t have anything like the big rallies they have over there. And the noticeable difference was that as a result, the Americans get a soundtrack of their politicians making speeches, unchallenged, to the background noise of cheers from supporters. We get our politicians getting a grilling from the media and getting heckled by onlookers. I reckon we give them something closer the lack of respect they deserve.
It’s Fathers Day on Sunday. A few shop catalogues for the occasion have passed through my mailbox. The JB Hifi one was chock-full of good presents for dads, lots of hifi gear, digital cameras, DVDs, all good stuff. Though I noticed they included Steel Magnolias as a DVD special. Even in this day and age, I dunno if too many dads would be overjoyed about receiving that for Fathers Day.
