Adelaide Crows

As a lot of my regular followers know I am a huge Adelaide Crows fan. The Crows play Australian Rules Football or to those with a sense of humour aerial ping pong.

The game is played from March/April with the Grand Final (Al la Super Bowl being place on the last Saturday in September. The game is played all round the country with eighteen teams playing over 22 rounds.

There is no padding or protective gear worn although some players have been known to wear gear for head protection. I have put a link to Adelaide’s most recent game that shows highlights of this exciting game and how in the third quarter Rory Sloane suffered a fractured cheek bone.

The Adelaide Crows remain in the top eight which is finals stuff however face a tough road ahead against some very good sides.

My wife the love of my life

I love my wife more now than I have ever done before.
There is nothing overly special that she has done other than be her self and letting me be myself.

It is easy in any relationship to become complacent and forget the little things you do or did that kept or keep the magic going. I think that is why people say you need to work hard at a marriage however for me it is easy as I am eternally grateful for each and every moment I have with my wife.

She is my friend, my soulmate, my pillar of strength in times of need but most of all she is the woman I love.

Anxiety after a few years

It has been quite a few years since I last worked and my anxiety levels have reduced slightly. All I can say is that it is a long road to recovery.

The warmer weather will now entice one to venture outdoors and get the blood flowing with exercise although indoors there are still ways to get the blood pumping.

The panic is still there in full flight when I think about returning to work. Expecting the same things to happen again and again in a consistent thought that travels around and around in my head. Trying to think of a job where I can be myself and feel comfortable is challenging.

The weekend is nearly here; time to loose myself in the love of my wife, leaving the outside world to itself until Monday greets us once more.

I have a dream

I have a dream, a dream where society lives together in peace and harmony. Where the morals of each one of us is left alone to be judged by no-one.

I have a dream of equality for each and every one of us to live our lives as each of us sees fit, without fear of retribution from nonconformists’ to our thinking and no recrimination for our beliefs with each one of us living our lives following our dreams and our passions with freedom and love in our hearts.

I have a dream that this post will make me money.

Oh yes I have a dream.

Anxiety Dreams

The car rolled slowly down the driveway, stopping just behind the marquee that was now humming along to the DJ playing the old 70’s and 80’s style music.
A man stumbles around the corner and fumbles trying to get a cigarette out and lighting it.

“Hey, your not suppose to park there.” He reaches for the driver side door and opens it. There is nobody there. He looks in side. The keys are still in the ignition. He decides against trying to move the car and heads back to the party to find someone else to move it.

The man returns and tells his friend about how the car came to a stop but no-one was driving. He’s had too much to drink the other man thinks as he gets into the car and turns the ignition key.

The explosion sends debris everywhere. Floating through the carnage there are people screaming and others lying silent. Body parts are scattered about the place with fires raging here and others just are flickering as though they were candles.

My view of the scene rushes here and there as slowly I am watching from above. As I glance across the suburb as I am flying higher and higher I can see other explosions across the land.

My vision is becoming blurred and then suddenly black.

Dear America

To the American people,

Come November the 8th you will not only be voting for Americas future but also the future direction of the rest of the world.

As an English born, Australian bred man now living in New Zealand I have watch all the videos, read all the articles and listened to all the differing views of the US election.

I have seen videos of people being asked if they would support Sharia law or if they would support illegal immigrants being able to vote and so many said yes.

I honestly hope that the American people are not that stupid!

I remember when the USA was looked up  to as a country to be looked up to a country that was what every other country wanted to strive to be but alas your country is now at a cross road. You have to decide whether you want to carry on down the same path or place your trust in someone who wants to do the best for America and the American people.

I have many friends who have differing views from me and that is ok, I respect their viewpoints and I always listen, however I just can’t change my views that the best person to move America forward and back to its majestic best is Donald J Trump.

I also note that as with every election dirty tactics are used. What someone said 20 or 11 years ago doesn’t matter what someone did while in office how ever does matter.
When Hilary Clinton was asked the questions about Bengazi she said those famous words “What does it matter”

What matters Mrs Clinton is that 4 Americans died on your watch you have to be held accountable and like so many of your other screw ups you blatantly turn your back on your responsibility to the American people, treating them like third class citizens.

To the American people, you have a responsibility to vote not only  to make America great again but also make the world great again.

What's wrong with that? Trump

I’m not American but I do find the politics of the USA very interesting especially since I grew up respecting what a great country it was. Yes was!

I have sadly seen a once great country become a land that has lost its way.

So we have a presidential candidate who wants to send illegal aliens back to where they came from because they are in the USA ILLEGALLY! What’s wrong with that?

He wants to stop refugees/immigrants coming into the country illegally and without proper vetting. What’s wrong with that?

Then there is the wall which will help secure the border from illegal aliens and drug smugglers. What’s wrong with that?

Americas armed forces to become the best of the best. What’s wrong with that?

Americas veterans to get the support and help they need. What’s wrong with that?

The corruption within politics is going to be brought into the open and dealt with appropriately. What’s wrong with that?

Jobs will be brought back to America. What’s wrong with that?

The America that I knew growing up will be brought back from the jaws of misery and made great again. 

What’s wrong with that?
