Australia like many country around the world, is a country where people can have their say and do as they like as long as they are not breaking the law. We have this right and it called Freedom!

Freedom is something I treasure as do many other people, you have only got to look around the world to see that so many countries will never have the Freedom that Australia has and I find that very sad.

Some say we are lucky our Government keep us Free. Me! Well I don’t think they keep us Free at all, they spend most of their day yell at each other about who right and who wrong. They could agree on anything if there lives’ depended on it. Those who keep this country Free are our Armed Forces.

This week on T.V. we were all told that in Parliament our Pollies would been doing there bit of yelling at each other about where our Armed Forces are fighting and if they should stay there or not, and this is what they were doing when a women ran in call our Soldier’s, murder’s and kill’s.

Now I don’t care if this woman was born here or come here from another country. She needs to get her head out of the cloud and look around her.

She is here and she is FREE, because of those who serve in our Armed Forces.

They are the one who give us our Freedom and who fight to keep us Free, they are the one who are always willing to go and do what this country ask of them.

They are the one who gave her the Freedom to walk in to parliament and talk rubbish about them and if she does not like the FREEDOM she has here she, she can bloody well leave and go to another country where she will could be jail for having her say, or better still maybe she would like to spend time on the front line with those who are fighting to keep fools like her FREE.

We don’t need fools like her, talking rubbish about the men and women, who lay there live on the line every day for this country; if she does not want the Freedom she has here, she can go somewhere else because we sure as hell don’t need her here.

And I have to be honest, some of the place that our men and women are fighting, I don’t think they should be there, BUT, I’m so proud of each and every one of them for doing what their country has ask them to do and I will always stand with those who fight for our Freedom, no matter what!!

I’m going to have a Bitch, so if you don’t want hear it, it time to stop reading!

Ross and I were in town today, Ross had gone off to do what he had to do and I was doing my food shopping.

As I was coming out of the shop I was approached by a lady, who asks me for five dollars, so she could get bread and milk.

Did I give it to her NO, Did she need, maybe?

Why didn’t I give it to her!

Because she was standing there with a packet of smokes in one hand and a six pack of grog in the other and no she was not drunk.

Now I don’t care if anyone smoke or drinks that up to them, but DON”T come asking me for money for food, when you just spent your last cent on a packet of smoke or a six pack of grog, because you won’t get a bloody cent of me.

If you can’t put food before the smoke’s and the grog, it time you got off your butt and stop smoking or drinking. There is help out there for everyone who wants to stop smoking and drinking, but the person need to get of their butt and make the first move them self, “No One Can Make Them Do It” they have to want to do it.

And before anyone goes off the face at me, YES I do have a drink when I go out and NO I don’t smoke, and YES I know these are hard things to give up. But some time we got to put our health and food before other things.

Growing up I was always told to help people when you can, it the Aussie way my Grandfather would say, because he said you would never know when you need help from others and he was right, it is the Aussie way. But some time you just have to say NO, some time people have to change the way they are to help them self.

Look you want help from me come and ask me and I will do my best to help you, in any way I can, BUT don’t come ask me for help, with a six pack under your arm, because the answer will be NO!!! And if that make me mean and hard so be it!!

Sentosa Island

Ok I promise you this is the last of the holiday pictures, Sentosa Island, it part of Singapore and there are two way of getting to it, by road or by cable car, and you must go by cable car, it is so good and you don’t know you’re so high off the ground, and you can see so much from up there, it wonderful.

As with the rest of Singapore, we saw what we could in the time we had, there are three you must see if you go to Sentosa,

1 Images of Singapore, this is a wax museum, it tells the history of Singapore and doses it very well, and it tells it from all side, good and bad.

2 Dolphin Lagoon, go and see the beautiful pink and gray dolphins, they were just wonderful to see.

3 And I think what really made it the for me, Song of the Sea, this light show is a must, you sit looking out to sea, the light and laser lights, show up on sea water that spray into the air.

The other thing you will see is as you walk down to the beach for the show you will past the largest fountain in this part of the world, it run from the top of the hill down to the sea and is made out of those, little square tiles, it very beautiful,

And after all that if you really need something to get you going, there Sky Tower, it goes up one hindered and thirty one metres, they tell me you can see all of Singapore from up there, yes that right you would not get me up there for all the money in the world, but those who when on it said it was great.

Singapore Day Zoo

When Ross and I were in Singapore we when to the Zoo, I’m a Zoo person any where we go that got a Zoo, you will find me there for the day at least, I’ve been known to go for more them one day in a row, and yes some think I’m mad, but I just love going to the Zoo.

Singapore has two Zoo’s a Day and a Night one and they are now in the middle of building a new one that will open sometime next year and that will be the River Zoo.

We when to both the Day and Night Zoo and they are both great, but I have never seen anything like the day one, you are on the same level as most of the animals, like when you go look at the white tiger’s, where you stand to look at them, is at the same height as the hills in there yard, there is no looking down on the animal’s, for the tree top animal’s, you walk with them in the tree’s and the animal’s are all round you, there is very little glass use, and when it is use it to show you something you could not see without the glass, like the hippo’s swimming under water.

The Zoo is all forest, when you’re not looking at animals your walk through beautiful, forests of tree and flowering plants.

We spend six hours at the Zoo and never saw half of it and my photos don’t do justice to just how beautiful, this Zoo is.

Before anyone who reads this has a hissy fit and tell me these are wild animals and they should be running FREE. Today Zoo are, NOT like Zoo of old and YES, I would like to see every animal running FREE, but having said that Zoo play a big part in showing people what beautiful animals we have in our world, and if we don’t stop and look after our world these animals will no longer be with us.
