Wednesday Motivational – Die On Your Feet, Not On Your Knees

Someone close to me died recently.  Sadly, it was his choice.  And as best I can tell he made that choice because he didn't like himself.  Or thought other people didn't like him.  Either way, that sucks. He couldn't help it.  Intellectually I understand that.  Emotionally, I'm still pretty broken up. 

Your “There’s No Place Like Home” Friday Evening Open Thread

As with many communities across the country, my locale has instituted martial law beginning 2 hours ago.  Well, martial law might be an overstatement I suppose, but not by much.  But according to them I'm not allowed to go anywhere.  And I could be fined and/or jailed if I'm not

Wednesday Motivational – Please Do Whatever You Can

We're living in odd times right now.  This virus isn't going to be the end of mankind.  I promise.  But it has changed just about everyone's way of life.  At least for the time being. Restrictions on social interactions.  Restrictions on travel.  Nearly every sporting event cancelled or postponed. And school closings. When

Your “Isn’t Autumn Wonderful?” Friday Evening Open Thread

Well, it IS Autumn in Australia.  One of the only nations which still has enough cojones to still play sports.  Don't get me wrong though.  They're taking precautions. But they're playing.  At least so far. As most of you know I've been filling in foar the lovely and talented Balls Of Steel

AFLW Beat – 2020 Round Six

OK.  For the past few weeks I've featured a profile of a player.  "Better Know The Girl" I've called it.  And we'll do that again next week.  But this week it's... Better Look Out For All The Girls Before They Kill You Tempers boiled over (under?) this week.  The ladies were apparently

Your “Jeebus It’s Friday The 13th Again?!?!?” Friday Evening Open Thread

See, this wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the stupid leap year thing.  Criminy. I've got a lot to say.  But I'm not gonna. Leap year can go suck my nuts. As can Covid-19. I'm not dead.  I have food.  And water.  I just put some plants in the ground.  I have shotgun

Wednesday Motivational – Sometimes It Takes A While But Getting There Is Worth It

I read a very good book yesterday.  Advanced copy.  I love knowing people who can steal things for me. I'm only just joking about the stealing.  She works in the publishing industry, it was legal. But the book has only just been released. Its author is Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt. Yes, her father is Arnold. 

AFLW Beat – 2020 Round Five

Better Know The Girl Yeah, I'm being a bit of a homer this week.  Our "guest" this week is none other than the Geelong Cats' rising star, Nina Morrison.  She good.
