Badger has always been envious

Traeger Lil' Pig
Now just as I was being mesmerized by the Texans – one of our very own comes out and tries to top them with his own particular brand of hare-brained theories.

Maurice Newman – former Chair of the ABC, former Chair of the Stock Exchange – former Chancellor of Macquarie University and currently Chair of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Group said:

“We have been subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years. This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN. It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective.”

New world order?

But what really can you expect from someone who works for a Prime Minister who most famously said ‘Climate change is crap’ and has in his Cabinet at least one Creationist.

But – more importantly – we have just had our first Tornado warning of the season. I get a warning on my phone and these grow in scale until I am told to flee to the basement. This has not happened yet – but I am poised to hurtle downstairs with a cat under each arm. There are plenty of supplies in the basement and I can last for days. Importantly – there is chocolate in the fridge.

On Thursday we are going to Denver for a long weekend. This is to celebrate Badger’s birthday on Saturday. This is a very special occasion and Badger is thinking of getting a Traeger wood pellet grill so that he can smoke meat properly.  Lenny has one of these and Badger has always been envious.

  2. Happy Birthday! I haven't been to Denver in about 6 years, I was passing through. Before that I had found the Ethiopian section of town, tried their food. We seem to be avoiding tornados for many years while Oklahoma has plenty. Perhaps its our elevation (>3000) ?
