A couple of news items and bibs and bobs

I see that the commonwealth action group in the Commonwealth of Nations (TCAG), formerly known as the British Commonwealth and at one time the British Empire; is having a shot at the dictator Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan.

It has been mooted whether to kick them out of the commonwealth

Good on them I reckon there is something wrong with the man.

Pakistan was indeed suspended from this organisation for 5 years at one time after a coup in the country but was reinstated after he appeared in Mufti instead of his uniform.

These tin pot generals are all the flaming same look at all the troubles committed in a lot of countries by these self styled Autocrats at one time they were referred to as banana republics.

Our foreign Minister Andrew Downer says he would support this action.

He was quoted as saying whilst Australia is not a member of the TCAG he would support such a motion I read this on a reputed media site our very own ABC

This meeting of the CHOGM is being held in Uganda.

We will be represented by our high commissioner in London at these talks including Prince Charles Who is campaigning or practising in his role to be become King our own PM has his hands full and facing an election defeat could not attend(hooray) still one never knows at the polls Joe Public could revise their thinking on the 24th

On a lighter note some joker listed the Prime Minister’s official residence in Sydney (Kirribilli House) for sale what a hoot and this has happened before it seems. "Current occupant considering a move even if a new lease is signed. one line went" another also urged would be buyers to move quick as it was likely interest rates could go up shortly. The director of Fairfax decided to go ahead with the advertisement knowing it was a mere joke; good onyah mate its nice to see some of us have retained their humour

I know I did a blog about me working away on my new website in my last post but I am getting there and now have many photo albums on it and quite a few videos as well.

To make things harder one of my computers failed to start up and silly me could not find the windows disc to reboot it.

After persevering into the wee hours I finally got it booted up so the language was bad here as you can imagine.

I have a blog on it if you register you can comment I have only just started it so only 2 posts up to now; maybe 1 more tonight.

I have even put a dictionary and thesaurus there to make it easier.

My son who was responsible for getting hosting etc says I am doing just fine so that’s good.

He reckons its ok and here’s me more concerned about my health.

Still it keeps the mind alert thus staving off that demon Alzheimer’s so I have been told; it’s true though in my opinion.

I also seem to be getting quite a few friends on Facebook as well; only one snag with Facebook it tends to get a tad demanding.

For all that it’s still a very good social network.

Here’s a site that could interest you if you are interested in the English language as spelt in other countries it explains in great detail how Aussies, Canadians British and Americans spell and pronounce their words.

I get sick of my spell checker bringing up the Americanised version all the time even after I have disabled it in word and made Australian English my default.

I did notice on this site that Canadians in the main use British words but American ones are used also.

Personally I can find nothing wrong with the way Americans spell; I know what they mean I was just taught to spell differently that’s all.
