I have had so much to do I have not had time to blog.
Also I have been transfixed by our Prime Mister who gave an Australian award to the Duke of Edinburgh. I thought someone was pulling my leg when I first heard about it – but it is true.
It is impossible to explain the inappropriateness and unadulterated awfulness of this to a non-Australian - so I will not try.
It will suffice to say that Tony Abbott has cemented his place in history as a brainless, steaming, honking plonker of epic proportions.
In the meantime Cate is still plowing along on the walk thing. She had to do a stress test to get a medical certificate and sign a form saying if she dropped dead it was her own fault – which of course it is.
She is going to fundraise for the David Sheldrick Trust which looks after elephants – as far as I can see mainly orphaned ones – of which there are many.
National Geographic says that poachers have killed 100,000 elephants in the last three years.
Whenever I see stuff like this I am reminded of the late great George Carlin.
He said something like:
‘Look around you and see what is happening in the world. Does this look like the work of a supreme being. To me it looks more like the work of an office temp with a bad attitude.’
