Happy New Year!

Let’s face it.

Everyone is basically doing their thing right now.

They’ll be a few specialist military divisions on the job just to be sure.

Happy new year beautiful people.

Last one was an interesting one and this one promises more.

We shall see. Should be something.

Let’s see what laws and policies are passed while we’re all asleep…

Almost made it as No. 1 YouTube vid of the year but instead this one “topped the charts”…

And so good people I bid ye farewell from 2011.

Disc in lower back decided to say kaput, but regardless…

More concerned that the following blog channel FINALLY got it right…

To everyone, public and private, who reads these ramblings… thank you so much.

(it’s not a day early; I just don’t see any postings going on tomorrow, so take the chance, the cortisone chance, whilst it’s there…)

God bless you all

Even you fuckers who don’t believe.

    And a happy new year to all, especially to you, BB.

    Take care everyone, but make sure enjoy yourselves. See you all next year.

  1. Hi,
    A very Happy New Year to you and Mrs BB, I hope all your dreams come true for the 2012.
    Also Happy New Year to all your blog followers as well.

    Happy New Year, to you bing and Ladybing, take care of yourselves and have a delightful New Years Eve.

    Happy New Year to all who post on bing’s blog, enjoy reading your thoughts.

    My dear Father who is 95 will be having radiation for a cancer on the top of his head, and is a bit upset as he was told he would lose his hair, and he has just bought three tubs of Bylcream! He said that is a tragedy!

      Hope your Dad gets on okay, Merilyn. The good news is, at his age, the Doc must think he is strong enough to get through the treatment. His hair will grow back. Just tell him he looks sexy anyway and he’ll be alright.

  2. Happy New Year … and may the back be better than new in the near future.

    • Thank you. Actually, it’s even better than it was before the pain started! I’ve “lost” my beer gut which I always knew was caused just as much by my spinal shape than anything else. Posture that was once an acute mental struggle now comes naturally.


      Not exactly pleasant at the time* but it is my new best friend.

      *Seriously, a needle – not what many would call small – goes about two inches into the affected area.


      Bliss that I’ve never known.

      Sit up straight kids!

    Happy New Year from me to bing, Ladybing to everyone else too . I hope 2012 brings great happiness to all of you. Merilyn, give your Dad a big hug!

    (I hope 2012 is the Australian year of the Abbott! 🙂 )

    • My thoughts exactly. How about that dad?!?!?!?

        • December 31st, 2011

        Thank you Elsie, Sean and bing, yes he is quite something, a very strong man mentally, just his body is letting him down as he gets older. Oldest daughter will see him in the next week or so, and will give him a big hug Elsie from all of us.

    Not sure what you think of this, BB. I like, alot!

    • Finally have a chance to listen. You posted/I read just as I was headed up to LBB home town.

      We shall see, nite tripper.

  3. I will seriously consider attending any NY party on Dec 31 2012 if they sing this instead of Auld Lang Syne.

      Good Afternoon everyone, on this beautiful first day of 2012. It’s currently 33’C, not a cloud in the sky and I’m working on removing some tan-lines and relaxing. (*offers Berocca to anyone in need)

      Hope you all had a glorious start to the new year.

      You are right about seeing H&C live on NYE, Gregory. I did that once, back in the Eighties. Best pub band ever to come out of Melbourne. They were actually better live than on their recordings (Their albums were always a bit harsh, I thought).

      To be honest, I really can’t recall the last time I heard people singing Auld Lang Syne at a NYE do.

      WELCOME TO 2012!
      Let’s all make it a good one, boys and girls.

        Well it would be a good 2012 Sean if only we could rid ourselves of Julia, Bob, Kevin, Wayne, Anthony, Sarah H-Y, Christine, Lee, Greg, Stephen [two of them], Craig T, Mark, Simon [proving to be very left wing leaning], Nicola, Tanya……………Heh

        • Sean of Deer Park
        • January 1st, 2012

        Merilyn, I think your list is very achievable.

        In fact, we should discuss what type of liquor bottle each of us will buy, and save, for the celebratory opening on election night 2012. (I find Blair’s Mead just awful)

        Meanwhile, I’ll stick with my Vodka and Panadeine Forte to dull the pain caused by that lot. 😆

        Did you see 60minutes this evening? The lady on the cattle-station and her description of Gillard was moving. I think there are alot more Australians who think Julia is “evil”. We are not alone in our concern.

      • OK. First up: TMI on the tan lines. Good God, man. Good fences really do make good neighbours (or in my case, good soundproofing does)!

        Second: It snowed here for the first time this winter. So beautiful.

        Had a H&C album as a kid… that famous one. Them, Bad Young Cannibals… Onion Skin doesn’t get enough credit these days.

        Sean: That Khan girl?

        There are theories about Hyphen-Young that simply can’t be aired on this blog but I think all the boys know what it is anyway.

        It’s kinda related to why Julia can’t/won’t marry Tim.

        Patience people. With a strong unionised labour force, there’ll be bugger all of the NBN laid out before this government is slaughtered at the polls.

        Gotta love irony.

        And on a final note for tonite, how sneaky is Wayne Swan classing the NBN as an “asset” and therefore avoiding a further $37-odd billion hole in next year’s budget?

        Sneaky little sneak sneak sneak. Just like how he ripped $7 billion out of expats’ super. Thanks, Mum, for chucking 20 into my super to stop the little goosely loosely (inactive accounts vs active accounts).

      • Merilyn, how about Ferguson. Bolt is too polite when it comes to that guy.

          • Merilyn
          • January 2nd, 2012

          Yep bing that’s why there are dots there, didn’t think you would be to happy if I named them all, like for e.g. if I kept going, Harry, Martin, Tony Windsor, Rob, Peter S, Andrew W…..etc and you re right about Andrew Bolt and Martin Ferguson, and he was taken in by Julia………!!!

          It is very hot here at the moment and has been a very warm night, so enjoy your snow.

    Best news today! John Howard gets an OM from the Queen:


    • Merit. That’s another word that doesn’t belong in the same sentence as either of JWH’s successors.

      • Sean of Deer Park
      • January 1st, 2012

      That is great, Elsie. I didn’t see that News. And on the ALPBC, too.
      Thanks for posting.

    • Deserved. Justified. Necessary.

      The Return of the Jedis.

      And boo hoo to the thought police bagging Clarkson.

      • Merilyn
      • January 2nd, 2012

      Uh oh the left media will not be happy with that Elsie, wait for the “catty” remarks.

      P.S. Hope your back gets better soon bing.

  4. I dunno. Endured a two hour NYE church service to keep the mother-in-law happy. Back was killing me. Couldn’t fit in the pews. Mind you, this gigantic space that is this particular church has run out of space. They had to use other rooms with video links ups and everything.

    The bloke’s sermon (with English going through the headphones) near fucking killed me.

    OK. I get it. The Jews were thirsty coz Moses led them into a frickin’ desert. You didn’t need to take near on an hour to make that point.

    But I dunno.

    Seriously. I shit you, not.

    Just went to Coles. They have Easter Eggs in big boxes near the checkout. Good grief.

    ps. My tan lines were of the singlet variety, BB. 😆
    I do have high fences and a hedge all the way around, just incase.
    Too hot today to be outside though – it’s 40’C ATM.

    pps. Re: your back. That’ll teach you for performing the ‘Flying Rhino’; too much! Maybe you should get one of those ergonomic kneeling chairs for your home workstation. They’ll make you sit up straight and make your blogging more comfortable.

    Evening Troops,

    Some timely reminders for the new year;

    1. If your father drinks top end whiskey do not try to keep up with him or your father in law.

    2. If your Father In Law drinks hot Sake when it’s 32C, do not try to keep up with him or your father.

    3. If you can drink icy cold Grolsch and your father and father in law can’t, get your own back (remember, they’re old and don’t recover as well). Life is good.

    Happy New Year Troops. 🙂

    • If you’re ever up this way (can’t imagine why), you’ll have to pop over so I can completely fuck you up on soju you can sample a taste of Korean culture.

        • Carpe Jugulum
        • January 7th, 2012

        Have to resit my language test in April, so we’ll see how we go sampling ‘local culture’, that and the 2 youngest Jugulettes are getting near to the end of their dual citizenship status so that needs to be sorted out too.

        • You have to do a Japanese language test? I’ve gotten by on girlfriends and now a wife who speak both languages.

          I’ve picked up some Korean along the way, and reading the characters is a synch (much easier than Japanese with all their crazy squiggles) but in all honesty, my Korean is abysmal.

          BTW, thanks for the mention on Blair’s Lair the other day.

            • Carpe Jugulum
            • January 7th, 2012

            Yep, need to pass the basics for my residency. Spoken i can get by from listening to Lady Jugs & her family, writtten i just can’t get my head around.

            • Shit. All I needed was to be married, LBB had to sign a statement saying I’m a good bloke, and we had to prove we have enough cash.

              With Nippon’s population going they way it is, you’d think they’d be a tad more lenient.

    • Carpe Jugulum
    • January 2nd, 2012

    Something from Lady Ai Jugulum;

    • Do I want to play that? I don’t think I do. But I will anyway.

      • My apologies to Lady Jugs… I thought it’d be one of those ones your husband puts on.

        My semester in psych 101 tells me Nippon can’t be far off.

    How’s this for absolute rubbish? [With thanks to Nonno on Pier’s blog].

      Nonna not Nonno sheesh………

      • Sean of Deer Park
      • January 4th, 2012

      Is it April fools day already?

      Talk about sprinkling glitter on a turd. Nonna certainly finds some gems from time to time. 😆 (Even the dog is rolling around on the floor laughing!) Surely, someone was taking-the-piss when they typed that one out (or, on the piss).

      How come there are so many ‘news’ items whom have no author these days? I suppose it simply means it was a paid advertisement, an ALP Press release, dressed up to look like journalism.

      It was a joke; right? Must have been. (*looks at copy again with blank expression)

      • A turd with frickin’ fairy dust all over it indeed.

      • Carpe Jugulum
      • January 4th, 2012

      I’d be suprised if Gillzilla could deliver a lettter.

    • Nice non-attribution but it has that wet handkerchief Paul Kelly written all over it.
