Ours are bigger

Too many people are confused by the spelling of AUKUS.
Listen to the pronunciation. It's orchis, from the Greek.

What we're saying  is, Look out World: we have big orchis Down Under.

Who is that fellow?

Biden is introduced to ScoMo. Or is that Scotty from Marketing?

Our forgettable PM hides behind several names.

Biden at least used a polite option.

I've been reading a science fiction book. It describes worlds run by politicians who are capable, honest and dedicated to improving their worlds.

The book is not really SF. It is ridiculously unbelievable fantasy.

In response to the AUKUS treaty, China threatens Australia.

"There used to be no grudges between China and Australia."

Wow. Imagine how much more nasty they will be now, with an actual perceived grudge.

Death doesn't bargain / Kerrilyn Kenyon

Death doesn't bargain
(Deadman's Cross #2)
by Kerrilyn Kenyon

fantasy, romance
copyright 2018
read a bit in September 2021

rated 6/10: read to pass the time

It's one of those books which is really a second chapter...

No explanation of what went before. No introduction to the characters. Straight into the action... killing demons, apparently.

The main characters seem to have good intentions. They fight to protect Earth from demons -- and to save the souls of friends (friends I've never read about before) from a very literal Hell.

I didn't read much of the book. There are too many unknowns to really enjoy the reading.

But from the little that I did read... it seems to be readable. Violent but enjoyable.

The cover is honest enough to inform us that the book is set in the "Dark-Hunter world".
Read other Dark-Hunter books, read this series' #1... If you then want to read this book... then I suspect that it will be very enjoyable. A standard entry in a continuing series... but not to be read as a standalone.

Keep an eye on those balls

Congratulations to the WA premier for getting the AFL grand final to WA. He will have won a heap of footy fan votes for himself.

Now he needs to insist on the full pre-game parade of all players through the city centre.

If we are not closely watching the players, they will be at pubs, clubs and parties. And then bang! the hard border covid bubble is a waste of time.

premier shows true colours

we all love our wa premier, for his tough stance on border protection.

i have had my first covid immunisation.
now the premier has decided that money and votes are more important than our health. football money and votes, that is.

perhaps i won't bother with my second covid jab. all of a sudden it all seems to be rather pointless.
